FURY- Mk. II - 1080Ti SLI

So this build started out with a hell of a deal on a pair of MSI Duke 1080Ti OC 11GB.

At the time there was a flood of 1080ti's on the market due to the crypto mining collapse as well as people getting ready to upgrade to nVidia's latest offerings in the RTX range. These came along at $650 AUD each and were just too good to turn down.

I eagerly bolted them into my old workhorse gaming machine codenamed "Fury" as I had build it at the time of the movies release.
This was a 4690k - Clocked @ 4.5ghz, 16gb DDR3 Hyper-X "FURY" RAM, GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 mobo and twin GTX 970's.

A few bench tests later, It soon became pretty apparent, that if I wanted to get the most of those cards, a substantial hardware upgrade was required. duh.

I'm building this rig with one goal in mind.
100fps on BFV.

I saved for another 2 months before settling on my current mobo cpu and ram. These were chosen with a $1500 budget in mind.

Cost prevented me from going with the latest intel gear. But I didn't want to miss out on upgrading in the future, should the 8700k start lacking some oomph at some point in the future.

I chose a ROG STRIX Z390-H Mobo which would allow me to throw a later generation CPU in if need be :)

I wanted to overclock, but nothing too crazy. Once all together I managed to push the thing to 5GHz running stable (I don't recall the voltage) however the temps were in the mid 80's even with the Kraken x72 working at full capacity which was just a little too high for the longevity I had in mind for this one, as I only upgrade once ever 4 years or so, and then recycle the parts into my home server. I backed it back down to 4.85 (just above its Turbo freq).

BFV managed to run at around 115 to 120 FPS for the most part and improving as the game gets updates as well as new GPU drivers.

To be honest, I haven't been keeping a real close eye on it, as it's all working pretty autonomously at the moment :)

That'a about it for now.

Plans to upgrade to a new Mouse and Keyboard fairly shortly.

I'll update when I can.

Cheers for looking.
