Description

Build went together smoothly enough. Had a few minor problems with screws and a lack of magnetic screwdriver.

The case came with 5 rgb fans pre installed. Ended up needing to rotate the exhaust fan at the rear of the case for better cable management. The fans are also proprietary and only plug-in to the provided fan control and lighting board. Fortunately for cable management this item is magnetic and can be moved anywhere in the case. In my case, I moved it to the front, above the intake fans behind the mesh screen.

Another issue I encountered was putting the second GPU in and connecting it with the nvlink bridge. The case has a vertical GPU mounting option and that part of the case is removed to put the GPU in regularly. Once both were in that part would not fit back inside the case. I reversed it to the out side to insure no large holes remain.

Overall I'm very happy with the outcome of this build and the ability to game in 4k and do other graphic heavy work for the foreseeable future.

Why didn't you just get a 2080 ti when both of those cards combined can get you an Aorus or Asus Strix card

A couple of reasons. The first being that I was not sure the 2080 ti would fit into the case I bought. The length of the card being to long to fit, or being q very tight fit. Case has a max GPU length of 330mm without front intake fans. The second was that the decision to do nvlink was after I bought the first card. Since I design digital Lego models, doing photo realistic renders takes a lot of GPU.
