49" Samsung CHG90 on a Loctek monitor arm. It's great for productivity and of course gaming. :)
I use that "backplate" as a mousepad, and I kid you not it's legit! No wonder that Target "backplate" looked familiar.
One thing I noticed is that I'm having trouble overclocking the GPU further than when it was equipped with its stock cooler. Now with a Heatkiller, the 2080 ti is basically the same except it operates at lower temperatures, which is around 27C idle and 41C during in game.
For Overwatch it's overclocked with +135 clock and +500 memory.
For Battlefield it's overclocked with +110 clock and +500 memory.
I think I could dial it down more, but that's the general best as it gets before doing something a little over the top like GPU bios flashing. I'm thinking about flashing the EVGA 2080 ti xc bios with something like a GALAX 2080 ti bios, but I think I need to wait it out a few months in case I get the Space Invaders screen, which basically means a faulty gpu. This is my second 2080 ti XC btw. EVGA did a great job replacing it, so I'm kind of on the fence about doing anything that voids its warranty.
Right now it's at 5Ghz, and temps for that can be seen here:
The only change I've made since uploading those screenshots is increasing the Min/Max cpu cache to 4.7Ghz, so the CineBench score is slightly higher now.
Thanks for the replies!
Thanks for the reply. Can you please tell me what kind of drain valve you used for your Inwin D-Frame Mini Carbon - GTX 1080 SLi - Build #002?
I see it now in the second picture. That looks like a great idea. I might even use it my build! Thanks for sharing.
How do you drain this? I'm looking to get watercooling parts for my d-frame mini, but I'm asking around to figure out if a drain valve is necessary. Great build btw.
Thank you. What I meant to say was psu not battery.
Also, did you have to install a drain valve for your inwin d-frame mini custom loop? I just bought most of the parts required for a custom loop, but I need to get fittings and maybe a drain valve if it is required.
Thank you for sharing your build. I'm about to build a pc using the same case, and I'd like to know more about your use of carbon fiber. Is it safe to use carbon fiber the way you did? Carbon fiber is electrically conductive, but I think the placements of the carbon fiber in your build is safe, but I'm just asking to make sure. How has it held up so far, and can you please share how thick the carbon fiber plate is for the battery?
