COVID-19 Multi-GPU Build for Folding@Home

Hi everyone, this is Matteo, product specialist from Cooler Master!

As I had to move all my work at home and I had to close the office, I thought about setting up a machine dedicated to Folding@Home to leave folding in the CM building during this quarantine period.

What you see are not 2 1080ti in SLI, but a 1080ti and an RX 590 that I combined together just for the sole purpose of letting both of them fold. (PCPartPicker does not allow to list both in the same hardware list) I have the priviledge of having lots of un-used hardware around so I though this could be a good way to make use of it during the quarantine period.

The CPU is a 3700X, was supposed to go into a workstation of a colleague but that never happened :D

Hope you guys enjoy, feel free to ask me here in the comments any question you have in regards of the system or the chassis itself, I'll get back to you as soon as possible!
