Hey mate, what are those round spherical things with the orange outlines? Thanks.

Alright. Thanks for your help so far.

Do you know if this NVLink bridge would work? I'm planning on getting a P600S, do you think the issue you had with the bridge not fitting fully in the case would be with all cases and bridges, or was your case just slimmer than most?

I've had a look and picked out my PSU as the EVGA P2 1200W.

I read online that it was better to use individual cables to power the 2080 Ti's, i.e use two seperate 6+2 8 pin cables per GPU even though each cable comes with two 8-pin connectors on the end, because then the power limit is higher. Is that what you did?

Also, any build advice you can give me? Building with many of the same parts as you, so would love any build advice, particularly with the motherboard/GPU's. :)

Nice! But looks like you may have to manually add the prices for a lot of your parts, I got really confused when I saw a Titan RTX build for under $2k.

Another thing - if this is a prosumer build, why a 9900K? Ryzen just makes more sense, you can get more cores and threads, even for the same price.

You could make the argument that Intel is still the absolute best at gaming, true, but in a professional environment it doesn't make sense.

Okay great! So those slots are the ones I should be putting my X Trio's in then (also using Godlike + 2x Trio Ti's)? I read that some slots on some motherboards are slower than others.

Sweet, so I can put it back on if mine fits :)

Fair enough. Any reason why water? Lots of people seem to think watercooling is unnecessary and useless unless it's custom.

Honestly all the power connectors really confuse me. Would you mind giving me a hand finding a PSU which would work? I've had a look (I'm in Australia) but just ended up getting really confused. Do you know if the AX1200i, HX1200i or the 1600W P2 would work? I would prefer to go with EVGA for my power supply but I'm in Australia so there's limited EVGA options (note most of the PSU's there having no price because they're not sold in Aus).

So if that P2 wouldn't work then it'd be great if you could recommend another PSU to use instead which is available on AU PCPP.

Thanks so much for your help! I'm really new to PC building so I really appreciate it :)

Hey mate, fantastic build! Just have a couple of questions if you wouldn't mind, I'm building a PC with very similar components.

  • Is the NVLink bridge you used the 4-slot EVGA one? Could you link it for me?

  • Also on the bridge, how difficult was it to remove the plastic covering? Are you able to put it back on or was it stuck on and it won't stay on if you put it back?

  • Why the H150i AIO instead of Noctua CPU Air Cooler like the NH-D15? You used Noctua fans for the build so I thought you would've wanted to use one of their CPU Coolers as well?

  • Why a 1500W PSU instead of a 1200? In my research for my build I found the build should draw around 1000W so it'd be best to go for a 1200W PSU. Anything I'm missing for why you went for a 1500W one or did you just want to futureproof?

Would really appreciate your help, love the build!
