Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
This feels excessive
Actually this is a pretty slick build. I went with the 2060 and put more into my CPU, but in retrospect wish I'd gone this route, as I have more need for GPU power than CPU power.
My only question is why you went with two 500 GB SATA SSDs, when it costs less to just get a 1 TB of the same brand?
It's a Ready Player One, reference. Pretty clever, IMO, given the rigs' purpose.
Better question is why are you getting you getting so twisted over someone's PC name? Chill out, dude.
You might not be using the right cord for the fan. The Wraith comes with two different cables. The 4 pin is RGB, and would allow controlling RGB through your mother board's lighting software. The 3 pin is an USB that allows you to control RGB through the Wraith software.
I've already done that as a workaround, and that would be fine if it was my computer. But the point here is to demonstrate to my 64 year old dad that a built PC is better than paying 250% more for a Mac. And telling him, "well, just never put it to sleep," when that's his usual practice, isn't going to cut it.
THIS is Halloween.
Nope, this is my baby. But I'd be happy to answer any questions about how to copy it.
It says its for a home office build. Assuming not gaming or image editing, the integrated graphics should be fine.
Thanks, it's working just fine with the 212 -- though if you're planning to really push the overclocking I'd recommend something more substantial. I have AI overclocking on, which is getting it it up to around 5 ghz, but I'm not doing anything that would sustain that demand over a long time period. I also would note that this case has excellent airflow, which makes things easier on the 212.
Upvote for the pikachu
Yea, I shifted it up and my benchmark increased.
Thanks for giving some actual useful information instead of just calling me a liar. Yea, the number I posted is from running Heaven, and also from checking after extending gaming. Didn't realize people would assume that "load" number to be a completely maxed out stress test, I understood it to be based on actual heavy use. Seems like that's more more relevant information anyway.
Not sure on the voltage, I'm using the Asus AI overclocking, so it sets that for me.
Part of the problem is I typed in "high 50's", and the box just kept the 50. It's more like 58/59
Is there a stress test that also shows temperatures? I'm basing this off what NZXT Cam is showing me while I'm running things.
The hyper 212 is only part of what keeps it cool. The Meshify case with the silent wing fans on the front and exhaust fans directly behind and above the cpu move a lot of air.
I was wondering how much that actually matters. I think it just looks so much better on the lower slot. I'll move it up and see how performance changes.

Thanks, appreciate it!
Probably the i7-8700k. I'll make sure to give you a shoutout in my writeup!
Yea, its a triple fan. It's the most-overclocked (out of the box) 2060 on the market. I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on a configuration with the longer Meshify (S2), the Asus RTX 2060, and the same cooler, motherboard, and fan setup you have. I'll let you know how it turns out!
Thanks! Yea, I figured it would be close because I saw the ROG STRIX version is 300mm long, and the Meshify C specs say "up to 315mm." I thought there might be an issue with getting the cables and screws in place with only 15mm of room to work with. Glad to hear its okay.
Any issues getting the ROG STRIX 2060 to fit in the Meshify C? I'm looking at the same two components, but I'm worried it will be tight with front fans.
Meshify C comes in both a "TG Dark" and "TG" [not dak] version.
This is a nice looking build. I'm considering one with some of the same parts -- including the Meshify C, and Kraken -- but I'm worried about whether the 300mm Rog Strix RTX 2060 will fit. Do you know how long that EVGA founders edition 1080 ti is? Looks like it just barely fits. Thanks!
Nice, I'll have to look into the longer Meshify. I'm eyeing the Asus - GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB STRIX and I'm a little worried about the 300mm length in this case butting up against intake fans.
Thanks, I appreciate the thorough reply. Basing it on looks isn't silly at all, I clicked on your build originally because I was trying to see how different air coolers looked in the Meshify C!
How do you like that motherboard? I'm contemplating a build similar to yours.
This is beautiful, but two 2080 Tis seems like overkill, no? What can you do with two that you couldn't do with one?
I mean, you're not going to be playing in 4k, but it's been handling 1980 x 1080 at 120hz without any major issues.
That said, for anyone copying this build, I'd recommend dropping a little extra for the RTX 2060 instead. But no need for Johnsonvu1 to throw this one out.
I have a 1060 6gb, it can handle almost all the most popular games at the top settings just fine. I got mine a couple years ago and paid $50 less, but its a solid pick if you're on a budget in 2019.
What are the specs on the transformer? I don't see it in the part list
