ASUS STRIX X299-E Gaming / Inwin 805 Infinity Build

BoyScout

Sept. 27, 2017

In our latest build video, we assemble another high-end Intel X299 build, this time using the Core i9-7900X. Check below for the full part list as well as a link to our benchmark results.

Production Note: If you are curious about the timing of this video, it was actually filmed last month around the time the X299 platform launched. Unfortunately, we ran into some production issues that caused a delay in publishing it until now.

A big thanks to ASUS for providing the CPU, motherboard and graphics card, as well as to Inwin for providing the power supply used in this build.

Check out how the system performed against some benchmarks and see some more photos in the Completed Build then be sure to watch the Cable Management time lapse to see how Barry cleaned things up for the final build:

I'm wondering what you do with these builds :) Are they or would they be for sale? :)

It varies with each build, but no -- we don't sell them. :) With this specific build, for example, the CPU was loaned to us and needed to be returned. Many of the components (Video Card, Memory, Storage and CPU cooler) were used to also create an intentionally similar X399 video. But most of the components typically get set aside for possible reuse in our future videos/livestreams or re-purposed if needed for benchmarking or other projects.

Just cause it is bugging me your price list is $334.99 short, in the video you stated 64GB of ram but the part list only has 32GB listed.

The linked part list (and total price) is correct.. looks like I managed to delete that line with the second memory kit when I was posting it here. I've added it back.

This is where all the tech geeks with no money go to see other people build their dream systems.

I mean, it looks neat and all, but you've got a fairly toasty GPU paired with a QUITE hot CPU, in a case with not nearly enough intake/exhaust fans. GamersNexus did thermal testing of the case, and it's... Well, it doesn't have good airflow. Like, at all. I get that Inwin usually makes nice cases, but as far as performance goes, the 805i leaves a fair bit to be desired, especially with the heat coming off of those 2 parts.

If you're curious to take a look, check out our benchmark results, including thermals, on the Completed Build. With the two fans at the bottom of the case feeding fresh air to the radiator and main chamber, our temps didn't give us any major pause. I'll have to take a look at the GN review to see what they might have run into, but I can certainly see (depending on the setup) how you could run into overheating issues. I definitely think this case takes some careful planning to leverage the restricted air flow layout options thanks to the case having only two sides (bottom/rear) available for moving air in and out.
