Description

This build was customized for content creation using Maya for 3D Animation, some video editing using Adobe Premiere and PS6 Photoshop. Of course some occasional gaming every now and then. The monitor that I bought was not listed on the part picker. It is a LG 32 inch 1440p 144 MHz with Gysnc flat monitor (LG 32GK650G-B) to match the Asus RTX 2070 Super with triple fan. Monitor is mounted to a dual arm adjustable VESA compatible mount. The downside when using similar sized (thickness) GPU is that the 2nd PCIe slot is too close to the intake of the GPU if you plan on adding an additional M.2 drives that are offered to the MEG and Godlike models.

I've used the 3200 MHz 32gb RAM since the prices have significantly dropped since 2017. I've set them to the default speed for my intended use. The Processor was only OCd at 3800MHz. I'm still working on the GPU but with my line of work, the GPU doesn't need to be overclocked.

All of the components functioned well. It was a challenge doing the cable management since most of the components nowadays uses ARGB.

The only issue that I've encountered is the driver for the onboard WIFI on the motherboard. I've already contacted MSI to provide assistance since the latest Driver on the MSI website doesn't work even with all of the latest updates from Windows 10. I'm using a USB WIFI for now.

Overall, I think this is a pretty modest build. I'll add some cable extensions later on. I'm not sure how to upload images or videos. So pardon if it is not available. It should be simple.

Nice build! I'm looking at getting a dual arm monitor mount, what one did you end up going with, and how do you like it?

Hi,

How is the performance/ stability of the graphics card so far ?

Thanks,

Great build you got there! Why did you go with the 2070 Super, when you could have gotten a 2080?

Thank you. Based on the bench test that I've been seeing from various Youtuber benchmarks, the RTX 2070 Super ($585 USD from Newegg during the initially released date) is performing pretty close and with some games, exceeds the RTX 2080 ($704 USD from Amazon). My primary choice was the MSI RTX 2070 Super Trio due to its lower price near the founder's edition and has 3 fans. However, it is always out of stock.

Ohhh I see. Well your decision makes much more sense now.

Yeah it is a great card, and it looks dope. Sadly, its always out of stock. Overall, it's still a great build.

Because the 2080 costs $200 more on average while having an incremental performance increase over the 2070 super.

search "Downloads for Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200", their driver says 7/2/2019

Thank you. MSI tech support also provided the same driver Version: 21.20.0 (Latest) for the intel ® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160 MHz; This Device Cannot Start. Error code 10. The driver still did not work. Of course, I am not the only one since all of the early adopters are experiencing the same issue. I am using my older USB WI-FI for now. I am not in a hurry. I'm sure they will eventually fix the driver issue.

It appears that I have a bad card according to MSI. I'll be requesting a RMA as soon as they get them in stock.

I'm also thinking to go with x570 pro carbon for my 3700x, how is the board?

  • 6 months ago

The only downside with the MSI X570 Pro Carbon WIFI is that if you use a thicker cooler like this Asus or MSI video card, which occupies 2 to 2 1/2 slots, will limit or obstruct the air intake of your GPU. Aside from the bad WI-FI card, It is a solid motherboard. With that said, I ended up upgrading the motherboard with the Gigabyte Aorus Ultra ($300) which I really like even more.

I was thinking about going with the MSI X570 Pro Carbon WiFi and getting an EVGA 2070 Super XC Ultra, which takes up 2.75 slots. How exactly does this board specifically limit the air intake of your GPU? In other words, what features/board dimensions are causing this issue that I should avoid when looking at similar mobos?

The issue that you can expect is that the 2nd 16x PCIE slot will limit the air intake of the GPU if you decide to install another M.2 PCIE adapter. Nobody does SLI anymore so that shouldn't be a concern. Just make sure you have good airflow in your PC case by adding intake and exhaust fans that are controlled by your motherboard (PWMP).

Hey, thanks for responding! What you said makes sense and I will definitely keep it in mind. Appreciate it.

Why the 750W PSU though ? Isn't 650W enough ?

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes the 650 Watts is typically enough and is the recommended PSU by the GPU. I am not sure what is the recommended PSU wattage if you are going to upgrade to a RTX 2080Ti. Anyway, the difference was $10, so I chose the 750 Watts. Why not right?

Oh, if you were going to upgrade anyway, then that makes sense.

Hey,

Lovely build. Do you find the front 3 fans at all noisy at normal loads? Im thinking of getting the MB530p for my next build, or a Meshify C with 2x140mm noctua fans for front intake and cant decide. Cheers.

Question re CPU power. That PSU only does 4+4 where as the MB has a 8 pin and 4 pin CPU power. I have mine running on 8 pin currently but is that at reduced power? Not finding much info about it online. Any info greatly appreciated.

Edit - Maybe if OC'd then it will need the additional 4 pin power used? Have the 3800X. No PSU's have the additional pins. Any thoughts on using 4 to 8 pin splitter?

Nice build, enjoy it!!! I have a question do I need a gpu support for this video card cuz I know is really heavy I'm don't want to see a sag on my next build !!!

You have the wrong GPU in your parts list. You have the A8G (Advanced) version, not the 8G version.
