The GTX 1080 is good for 1080p. I have one myself and can recommend at this resolution.
I suggest the 860. You won't notice a huge improvement in games and most programs with the 960.
straight up gang ****
Thank-you. I'm probably being annoying at this point but is there any reason your 140mm fan has no anti vibration mounts and is raised to the top?
Also where did you buy the asus strix 2080ti? I can't seem to find any in stock.
Should've waited for the i9 9900k if you're spending this much cash. Might want to increase your storage as well. Other than that it looks pretty clean.
Thank-you. Around 75C is the maximum that I want it to go.
Asus ROG Strix Z390-E
Why the change in case fans and monitor? Also lower clocked memory?
I've heard that it does work on z370. Not 100% sure though.
Lmao I don't think the suppliers even know what the prices for these motherboards are yet.
2080ti shipments must be arriving.
Really interested in the r6 because of the noise dampening. Worried about thermals though. Thinking of putting 3 Noctua 120mm in front and 1 140mm in back. I just want to get as much GPU boost as possible with ramping up the fans much.
Thanks for the response. Final question though. Why did you opt with the single fan NH-D15S over the dual fan NH-D15?
Do you think that the top fan closest to the front would take cool air away from the CPU heatsink?
That's a good idea kschendel. I'll definitely try that.
Do you find it noisy at all with the meshify?
I only have two hard drives which will fit perfectly in a meshify. Do you know if it will be annoyingly loud if I replace the fans with high quality noctua fans? The only reason I'm considering the r6 is because of noise.
Thanks for the response! Do you think 2 NF-A14 140mm fans in the front would be quieter than 3 NF-A12x25 120mm fans?
Oh and how are the GPU temps?
I've had these and they're great. If you want RGB just go for the RGB variant.
If you're on that high of a budget I would go for some faster ram as well.
bout a buck fiddy
Noctua fans will actually fit at the top if you're still wondering.
20k for a new kidney.
I'll be building a similar build. Looking nice!
Thanks. I'll definitely consider the R6.
Have you used these settings before?
120GB is fine for windows 10
So, for example, 16x2 kits would be faster than 8x4 kits?
Wondering this as well.
How did you calibrate your monitor?
Bruh, how loud is it with all those fans?
Wouldn't that negative airflow configuration pull in a lot of dust?
Thanks for the response.
Does it sound quiet at idle and under load with all those fans?
Ah, thank-you good sir. Is the cheaper monitor of the same quality as the Asus panel?
How's the temps on the gpu? My fan setup is going to be exactly the same. Two noctua 140mm intake, two 120mm exhaust.
Also is that airflow positive or negative pressure?
Where do you put your hard drives?
Thanks for the reply. I'm not really on a budget so that's why I went with the higher psu and ram (just for future proofing). As for the fan configuration in this case what would you recommend? I though two 140mm in front and 2 120mm exhaust would be optimal for a positive Pressure airflow.
Same here. I don't get the whole 1440p craze. A 240Hz 1080p display might even be a nice option.
Thanks for the detailed response.
Would there be any speed reduction or negative side effects if I use a quadchannel kit in the dual channel mobo. I just find it looks a lot better filled up.
Does the Asus ROG Strix Z370-E support quad channel?
Were the rubber screws easy to attach to the fans? I can never seem to get them to work.
Temps on full load? I want to build something just like this; silent but powerful.
Nice build. Pretty similar to mine.
