Description

I'm a bit late to post this build as I finished it back in November 2018. This was a version 1.0 of the build. Ever since Evolv X case was announced I planned to build a system in it and when I realized there will be a dual system kit I immediately thought of building a 9900k+8086k dual system.

So I pre-ordered i9 9900k but B&H took forever to ship it so I built this system as a temporary build until I get the i9 processor.

At first I installed powercolor rx vega 64 instead of MSI 2080 ti trio for my itx system so that this system had Intel x Nvidia and AMD Ryzen + Radeon in a single case which I thought was pretty cool but I swapped it out for Trio card because the color/RGB on trio matched the build much better.

I use main system for everyday use and gaming and my sub(itx) system is purely for my racing rig. I already had a dedicated pc for the racing rig but this will do the job now.

I already started to build version 2.0 of this system and it's about 95% done and I will post it once I'm done with leak test.

Hope you guys enjoy. Thanks.

How do you control your RGB? What hardware/software rgb controler you use?

Nice build.

  • 10 months ago

All of corsair hd fans, led strips, and case rgb lights are connected to commander pro and I control/sync them on icue. Motherboard/ram/2080ti rgb are controlled by asus aura and msi mystic light.

  • 10 months ago

So can you control rgb g.skill ram on asus aura?

  • 10 months ago

Yup.

Edit* Case rgb lights are directly connected to the motherboard so it syncs with motherboard and ram on asus aura, not icue.

Do you run 2 games at once on both systems? And if so how are thermals while running both?

  • 10 months ago
  • 2 points

I don't run 2 games simultaneously on both systems but I was curious about thermals with both system at full load so when I tested it out I saw both cpus' temps getting a few degrees hotter (delidded 8086k at 5.0ghz 1.31v stayed under 68c, stock 2700x at around 65c). On the other hand two 1080ti's gained about 7~9 degrees when both systems were at full load going from about 73c to 80~82c.

It will depend on what games/programs are running and how fan curve is setup though. One thing to note is that when both systems were at full load my watt monitor read around 1100w which was a bit of nerve-wracking so I've ditched 1080 ti sli setup and going with a single 1080 ti in my main sytem for ver. 2.0

  • 10 months ago
  • 2 points

Nice ya I don't think the 1080ti sli + a 2080ti is necessary but I don't think it would be to much of a problem for that psu (would definitely hurt the electric bill though) but if you really wanted to run the 1080tis sli they do make 1600w psus which would leave you a nice 500w head room.

  • 10 months ago
  • 2 points

Sadly, this dual system build requires using phanteks revolt x psu (since you can't physically fit two psu's in this case) which only comes in 1000w or 1200w variants. I asked phanteks if there's a plan to release 1600w version and they said no. :(

  • 10 months ago
  • 3 points

oh dam, that sucks time for a bigger case I guess.

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

They do make a piece that goes in the case and allows you to power both systems from any psu. Just a thought. http://www.phanteks.com/PH-PWSPR.html

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah, I know some people who were going with normal psu+phanteks splitter for their dual system builds but in my case there was no way to fist that splitter inside psu shroud because it is already fully populated with cables.

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

Honestly that's not to bad your reaching around 91% efficiency so in actuality I think that psu is perfect for daily use (as I'm sure its going to be around the 800-900 watt range during your daily workloads).

What do you plan on doing with the second PC. I literally have all the parts to do exactly what you did. My 9900k and Maximus XI that replaced my X and 8086k got here a couple months ago. All I'd need was a Maximus Gene for the ITX. I was looking at building a dual machine but just can't fathom the application.

  • 10 months ago
  • 2 points

For now, my itx system is solely for my sim racing rig. But since I play it only once or twice a week usually it is turned off while I use the main system.

I see this dual system can be beneficial for people who want to stream using a dual pc setup but have limited space and for people who want to use it for gaming+content creating/editing and such.

BTW, maximus gene is a matx board (I wish it was itx board tho. haha)

Is it dual sli for one system or one gpu per system? sexy build kinda jealous

ATX system has two 1080 ti's and ITX system has one 2080 ti. So 3 gpu's total.

I wanted to try out push/pull setup for 8086k and see how it compared with my old setup with just 240mm rad on 8700k. The difference in temps were very noticeable at both idle and under load.

When just atx system is turned on I never see 8086k going over 66c and 1080ti's over 73c.

I don't run 2 games simultaneously on both systems but I was curious about thermals with both system under load so when I tested it out I saw both cpus' temps getting a few degrees hotter (delidded 8086k at 5.0ghz 1.31v stayed under 68c, stock 2700x at around 65c).

How are your GPU temps?

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

Surprisingly 2080ti doesn't get affected too much when both systems are turned on and under load, it stays under 76c. On the other hand, two 1080ti's get pretty toasty around 82c or so if both systems are doing work.

When I play games with just atx system turned on, 1080ti's temps stay around 73c.

The way you use the dual system makes no sense at all. Just saying. Now u got 2 Gaming rigs. One 9/10 and one 10/10. Why not use the 9900k + 2080TI only ? Your text doesnt say if you will ever use the systems side by side and unless you do it its just useless

How did you mount the second system on the top! Did you have to do some custom cutting? I really like the cleanness of the two systems. Did you somehow link the two systems to work together or do you and someone else use it?

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

Phanteks sells dual system kit for this case which includes an itx bracket so you can mount itx mb on top of the case and a 600mm riser cable for its gpu.

Two systems work independently and the itx system is connected to my sim racing rig which is its main role but can also be used for anything else.
