Well for my first build I will say it went better than expected. It didn't come without a few hiccups though. I will mainly use this rig for gaming and streaming. Hoping my GPU holds up though cause I've had it since November, but otherwise I was happy with it. Especially with the Vertical Mount. Temps so far haven't been too bad due to me able to seat the GPU a little bit further back for a little better airflow. Haven't seen any temp over 67 degrees under full load. CPU hasn't hit over 30 yet, but I also haven't done any OC yet so we will see. One downside to my build was the 140mm rgb fan I got had dead lights when I tested , but it still works as a fan so it doesn't bother me too much. One thing to think about though if you're thinking about getting the Aorus RTX 2080 is that the fans run on an auto mode by default. In other words they only run while the GPU is under load. Took me a bit to find the Aorus Engine Software that gave me full control of fan speeds. I haven't decided on a monitor yet so I am stuck with 1080p 60hz that I am borrowing from a friend. So happy to finally get off of my laptop and have a full on gaming rig. PC Master Race!!!
Fantastic Card!!! Noms on any game I throw at it and looks sexy while doing it. Tensor cores sadly have nothing to do though but that's not the fault of Gigabyte.
Have had no issues with this keyboard, it is a little loud as my friends have told me on discord but, It's a mechanical keyboard there is gonna be clickity clacking going on. Love the Steel Series software as well
