Description

Much like many people here, this was my first build. I was replacing an ASUS ROG G750JW laptop. The laptop was nice, but I wanted something a little more. And more I built.

I ended up going out on the day the GTX 1080 Ti released and buying all these parts at local stores. The GPU was bought at Fry's in San Diego, CA, and the rest of the items were bought at Micro Center up in Tustin, CA. Assembled it all that day, and even had first boot up that night. I must say, I was very impressed with how well everything went, considering this was my first time building my own PC from the ground up. I had some experience tinkering inside of a computer, but nothing like this.

All in all, I rate installation process 9/10. Everything fit like it should, and it was expected. As I had actually held and inspected each part before purchasing.

The performance is AMAZING, as you'd expect from this build.

my favorite color. i obviously have full control over keyboard, mouse, case, mobo, and cooler, but I landed on purple first as it's my go-to.

I always wonder how the temps are in this case as it has like zero to no airflow lol, how are yours?

there's actually a vent with a screen that is on the bottom of the case with magnets. right up at the front, so there is air flow throughout the whole case.

so far so good. although i haven't really pushed anything yet. I ran GTAV on ultra, flew around in a jet, drove around at full speed in a car....was getting around 70-80 fps and gpu didn't reach over 75C. still working on my fan curves though

that's next. it's tough with the modular psu. i didn't want to unbundle the cables i didn't have to, but that left me with a mess of cables at the bottom. there's space on the other side, but not much.

i was lucky enough to get one in store. fry's opened at 9am and i got there at 8:45. there was only 1 other person waiting for one. which is good, as they only had 7 total.

This is one of my favourite builds, I am currently looking for parts for my own build, I was going to go with the Ryzen 7 1800x with the 1080ti. But I couldn't get that done right. Thanks.

Any thoughts on why you get pg278qr instead of 9q?

  • 39 months ago

the differences were negligible for the price difference.

Really cool case i like that , gz first 1080ti build! Have a good time with beast

Nice Build, considering all of these parts too, however maybe noctua nh-d15 CPU because read that liquid CPU fans make way to much noise and especially in this case, what are you thoughts on this? also the CPU temp in this case? Lastly, why not NZXT hue for RGB Overkill?

actuaally, since this, i have put in a custom loop. cooling the gpu and cpu in the same loop. will update this soon when the final touches are added

It's 11GB because of that. Nvidia got it's marketing right this time.
