Description

Woow what a thing. I have to start that I'm broke now >.<

But let's get started:

Check these insane components, I still can't believe it. Rocking this thing is a joy every day. But wait, I'm not only browsing builds on pcpartpicker with it. No! Check my Photos: I did some benchmarks too :P

I built this insane rig about End of September 2018 and had my "old" 1080ti in it. 2 Days ago finally my 2080ti arrived I preordered and was able to finish my build :)

But why such build?

I tried to build the "strongest" rig money can buy you at the date I bought everything.

How do you use it?

I mainly work on it and game Horizon 4 and Battlefield V.

How is Raytracing?

To be honest: I only play multiplayer and you won't notice a big difference while playing. Only when you look at it. But the effect gets lost after some time and you are with 55-60 FPS @3840x1600 (24:10 Ultrawide) screen resolution.

2x 360mm Rads enough?

Looks like it. For heavy benchmarks, I used it at my open window to cheat a little bit with better temps ;)

Temps

Overall I'm happy with all temps of gpu and cpu. I was wondering why my SSD m2 had such high temps, over 70-80C often. So i added an EKWB Headsink and temps dropped to 50-60C. Still high but its ok at that spot.

What Res is that?

Many friends asked for the res I used. Its called Touchaqua XYZ from Bitspower. Only negative point is that the pump is no PWM and it's pretty loud. Maybe I'll change that when I upgrade anything and need to take apart the loop.

What Liquid are you using?

Thermaltake C1000 White, about 1.4L.

Do you recommend to spend such much money?

NO! Unless you need it Kappa

Benchmarks

I'm really proud of that amazing Cinebench score of over 4600 Points and 217 CB Single core. That's just insane.

I'm not done with perfect overclock of GPU. In some Benchmarks is already in Top #50 but that's not enough :D

Done

I tried to take many pictures if you need more, hmu!

Feel free to ask whatever you want. Maybe I can help out with any questions. Tell me Benchmarks I should run and ill keep you updated with results ;)

Let's see what will be the next change, I guess a second 2080ti and a DDC PWM Pump. That 100% S1 Pump from Bitspower is really annoying and the loudest thing at my whole build. feels bad man

Please don't report me for NSFW content xd

What was the date that everything was bought? I guess I'm curious since you said everything was the strongest parts when you purchased, and the 9980XE exists.

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Sept. 29, 2018 and 9980xe wasnt available then. But is far i saw there is no big difference to the 7980xe

MrThreePik 10 Builds 3 points 1 month ago

True, the 9980XE is only a revision. Marginally better.

BetrayedPredator 3 points 1 month ago

Marginally worse by a lot for overclocking

The soldered TIM is bad compared to liquid metal, and you can't delid a 9980XE

ooferino 3 points 1 month ago

Yeah, the 9980XE's existence is pretty dumb. You're right, there pretty much is no difference between the two.

tresnugget 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Being that a 9980xe is a soldered 7980xe, I'd take a delidded 7980xe any day

ooferino 1 point 1 month ago

Yeah, I saw the GamersNexus video on it and it does make sense, the solder is better for lower idle temps and liquid metal does well in high temps.

Challenger525533 1 Build 3 points 1 month ago

Well...this looks amazing and probably performs very well (considering high benchmark scores). And this is definitely NSFW --- "Not Safe For Wallet".

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Hahah true

Dustworks 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Also this build looks stellar in the pictures

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks

Peddddroooo 2 points 1 month ago

This built needs to be featured

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

thanks ^

MrThreePik 10 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

I would recommend not having your front fans set to exhaust.

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I’ll switch it maybe thanks for advice

BetrayedPredator 2 points 1 month ago

You could have went with a stronger 2080ti and delid that 7980XE to push temps lower to overclock :)

Other than that you need to beef up your monitor to 4k 120hz with HDR for the true overkill

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Its delidded. But my fans are only running at lowest speed to stay quiet and it’s performing great. Only at 100% load it’s getting up to 77

DerpachudaPug 2 points 1 month ago

What is your favorite component

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Def the 2080ti

DRAGONWARRIOR1028 2 points 1 month ago

No +1 because only one 2080 ti. But in seriousness, beautiful build, see you when you get featured.

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Haha Thanks. Maybe next month a second will join ;)

joenodden 2 points 1 month ago

Lol at least the headphones are a great value. Probably the best sound quality you can get for the money. I'm gonna get a pair myself.

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I have them sooo long and they are really good

RegularTimster 2 points 1 month ago

So many comment for only two days since post, amazing build I wish I had that mutch miney to spend, big sad

Broxx 6 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

This build is just nutty lol. It looks so good too. Out of curiosity, why didn't you go with faster RAM? Not that 64GB @ 3k is slow but yeah lol

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I watched some Vids and 3000 looked to me as a sweet spot

Jesse80ti 2 points 1 month ago

Do u work at doctor or lawyer who's hobby is just a pc gaming :D

Tho its still looks ******* great

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Nah I'm a Student and earn money next to my studies in the internet :)

JakiChan 2 points 1 month ago

How was this case for doing an E-ATX build? It looks like the cable management was a bit of a challenge due to the motherboard size?

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

It was quite ok and not too hard. But in bigger cases it would be easier true!

envoyer.nue.lol 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

you may get a feature lol congrats

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Thank you :)

Dustworks 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Why'd you get a 903 over a 502... The 502 is by and large the most comfortable mouse on the market and has everything from Logitech and the 903 is frankly really uncomfortable with it's symmetrical design (this varies by person but how can a symmetrical mouse be comfortable for anyone... That's why there's left hand specific mice)

ooferino 3 points 1 month ago

Different people have different hands

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I like it and I’m fine with it :)

DerpHero 1 point 1 month ago

Weird flex but ok

Corve submitter 2 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

No yeezys or boxlogo:(

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

you better be using it to get yeezys and boxlogos lol!

_Unphazed_ 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

My thoughts exactly

tresnugget 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I've read that SSDs don't like to be cooled and that heatsinks and liquid cooling can kill them. You should only cool the controller and not the nand

JimmyJimmy 1 point 1 month ago

An i9 9900k would’ve probably been better for gaming, and the processor itself, as well as the compatible z390 motherboards, cost a lot less $$$ so you might’ve even been able to afford a second 2080 ti or 128GBs of RAM if you had gone that route, but nice build nonetheless, looks great too :)

Corve submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

For my work more cores are doing a better job. Since I’m not only gaming on it. Second 2080ti is already ordered but it’s not shipped yet. In my German store where I bought it (otto.de). Since I get really good discount there I can wait for it. 64gb of ram is already topnotch but I thank you for your ideas :)

JimmyJimmy 1 point 1 month ago

OK, thanks for the timely response, if a higher core count is what your after then the 7980XE is definitely the better choice ;)

jive_turkey6 1 point 1 month ago

I love the temperature gauge that you have, where did you get it and how did you set it up?

ShineGlizzy 1 Build -1 points 1 month ago

Looks like a beast! Check mine out bro! +1
