Very solid machine for under 2k. Nice to see prices on SSDs and GPUs coming down.

2 years ago a similar build would have been almost 3k

Can't wait to transfer everything into Louqe Ghost S1 (still waiting for delivery).

If I had to guess I'd say he's interested in the Ghost S1 but it hasn't arrived yet.

Build a home NAS. Xeon - E5 gen 1 CPUs are insanely cheap and you can pick up a supermicro X9 board for ~150.

You can have a full NAS/Plex server for under 500

I like your solution for SSD integration into those drive slides. I think I'll run a few zip ties through mine for peace of mind.

Holy hell man! That is a clean build. How are you running those wires? Through the wall?

I like that the PC is showcased off to the side.

Brand distinction. Why blend in when you can stand out?

Noctua continues to be #1 in fan performance.

How loud are those industrial fans? I keep wanting to get them but I don't want my PC to sound like a freakin' rocket.

Grab yourself a monitor arm and reclaim some of that desk space.

It's not bad. I like the cherry brown keys and the battery life is great. It's my wife's setup so I don't use it too often but when I was setting it up it was nice.

Thanks! You could not fit another stick under the cooler. The fan blocks the closest RAM slot.

I was surprised at how big the cooler was since it isn't the 'pro' but damn does the thing work great. Temps are fantastic and the silentwings fans are stupid quiet.

No issues. I choose not to use it here because I am using a HSF and it blows enough air over the VRM.

If you look at my other build I did install the VRM fan because I went water cooled.

I gotcha. I selected the wrong keyboard. Nice catch.

I do have a 60% board that I use for test boots but it's not wireless.

If you're going to run an AIO watch for clearance issues with the GPU. Otherwise it's a fantastic case to build in. Very easy to work with. I did pull the front IO and reroute it through a different hole to keep the cables out of the way but other than that it's great.

CPU CLOCK RATE: 2147483.65GHz

Do you have temps under load? I'm surprised the Corsair H100i can handle the heat output.

What voltage did you use to achieve such an overclock?

For gaming? Get an SATA SSD. Save a little or if you're dead set on spending >$300 grab a 2TB SATA SSD and you'll be set for a while.

Water cooling the 2080 should help keep those temps down. The new founders cards look sharp from the backside. Nice build.

It's probably the only one left. I'd get the advanced. It has a higher clock speed out of the box so you'll get a little more performance.

The advanced has a higher base clock and one more HDMI port.

Great build. I love clean white builds. I have a question though. You're GPU brace seems too low to do anything? Is it touching your GPU shroud?

"Every PC cooler comes with a little bit of thermal paste neatly applied around the cooler but it's usually not enough. It's good PC building practice to add extra and layer it on top of the CPU." /s

Sounds like a heatsink issue. Try reseating the HSF and applying new thermal paste. If this is your first build watch a few videos to get an idea of the appropriate amount. (around the size of a pea).
