Description

This build has been in the works for years and I finally pulled the trigger January 2019 when my gaming laptop died and ASUS sent me a warranty reimbursement check when they couldnt fix it. The 2080ti hybrid was an upgrade in march when that released, before that I had a 1080ti from my old computer.

It can easily handle 4k (and often times I set games to 4k as the monitor can OC to 4k) but I usually run in 2k to get the 144hz+ refresh. Its crushes every game I've thrown at it with ease, and in some cases I play two different games on each screen (Total war games, Civilization games, Eve online) with ease.

It can also crush streaming while gaming without getting any frame drops or fps drops in games and I use the 2080ti to encode.

I will probably switch out the intel m.2s for Samsung m.2s down the road when the 970 evos drop in price, making it a 5tb in total m.2 storage. The intel m.2s have high burst write speeds but extended transfers slow them down to SSD speeds (300 to 500mb).

I HIGHLY recommend the samsung 970 evo plus m.2 for a windows drive. I've seen increased speeds across the board, even with my download speeds on platforms such as steam. Switching from an SSD to the M.2 I've gone from an avg DL speed on steam of 40mbps to around 50mbps with highs in the 60mbps range 😍

I'll post some benchmarks down the road as well!

The case I have listed is not my case, since my case isnt listed on PC part Picker.

I have: Corsair Vengeance Series Military Green C70 Mid Tower Computer Case (CC-9011018-WW) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007S02GLQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's rare to find another Eve Online player. Awesome build dude, cable management may need some love haha. I have a Samsung 970 evo plus as well as a boot drive which is awesome.

Thanks for the like!

Cable management is definitely not my strong suit, lmao.

I started playing again to see how it would look on my new system and I wasn't disappointed. I need to get back into the swing so I can fund my sub with in game money xD

Zip ties are your friend haha. Maybe I'll see you in Eve then ;)

How is the GPU doing? Seems like an extremely powerfull GPU. And watercooled. Must overclock like a beast.

I havent actually overclocked it! It's such a beast I havent felt the need to yet.

I did mess with my CPU on overclocking and got it to 5.7 stable but i set it back to stock.

Thanks!

I agree. It's an old case. My wife's computer and the other PC I just build have shrouds and I might upgrade my case soon to get one. I just really like the OG green case with the handles ontop, reminds me of an ammo box, lol.

I also would love to get a case with tempered glass vs the plastic window that I have.
