This build came about because last year I built a rig during the Crypto-craze, and due to the inflated pricing at the time I had to cut a lot of corners. I felt as soon as the hype was over that I would build a new rig. Thats when Nvidia announced the RTX line, so instead of copping $1000 out to upgrade my GPU to a 1080Ti, I end up holding out a while longer until the RTX line came out. Gave me lots of time to save up and I knew I was going to go all out on this build and that's what I did. I even bought a new desk, and a Corsair T2 race chair while I was at it. My last build I named "stealth" as it was completely black, no RGB at all, and this time I utilized as much RGB as I could without going too far. Love the TG case, the room inside it, and the ability to clearly show off the internals. I wanted something that stuck to brands I love, MSI, Thermaltake, and Corsair. Side note, this build also uses RockitCools delid tool, and Copper IHS, with ThermalGrizzly Liquid metal and Cryonaut thermal grease. I should mention this is a binned CPU, I hit a thermal wall overclocking, but with the copper IHS and only a 280mm rad I was hitting 5.7ghz (all core) @ 1.35v and thermals were at 70*c. Once I bumped to 5.8ghz the temps would climb too high for my cooling to keep up. I also had my memory set at 4000mhz (I forget what timings I end up with but I did lower them), and my GPU I used the OC scanner, after many attempts and messing with things I got a 160mhz oc avg, with boost being 2100mhz. For daily gaming I run at 5.3ghz (all core) @1.2v and idle @ 29*c and full load 48*c, with my memory set at 3800mhz @ 16T and my GPU still at GPU scanner settings (2100mhz boost, no GPU voltage, +1000mhz memory, PWR limit set to 111% and custom fan curve). MSI just emailed me back with a new Vbios, and I have plans to upgrade to either a bigger rad or custom water loop in the future. Will post Benchmarks soon.
