Description

Named it after a friend who hates glass panels and RGB.

This build was much needed as my previous system was 7 years old.

Runs like a charm after 2 days.

Some people will probably look at this build and say that it was dumb to buy the 2080 TI. That decision is more about me finally having the money to buy the top end graphics card that I could never afford as a teenager 15 years ago when I started building computers.

I know it's not the best price to performance ratio, but I needed to own the graphics card at the top of the mountain, just once.

Really nice build! Did you need both node’s (and i assume a corsair commander pro is there aswell?) to control the RGB for the corsair fans?

Yes, there is a commander pro included. and yes, we used both nodes. Still not sure if we had to, but that's how we got it to work perfectly with the iCue software.

Nice build! Love the case. Isn't there a slight bottleneck with the 2080ti and the ryzen 5 3600

No, not really. The ryzen 5 3600 only has slightly lower gaming performance than something like the 3900x. The extra $300 you're paying for is mostly for multi core / thread performance, which gaming does not really utilize.

Yeah I agree. I've changed it since the pictures were taken. That was the default color the system started with. I've set both the card and the motherboard backlight to a light purple color, which looks nice with the white and black. I've also had it set to white before too, that also looks nice.

How do you have your fans set up for intake vs exhaust?

Honestly I didnt plan that out in the best way. I've been meaning to do some testing on what works best and change some stuff up. Honestly I never see temps for the CPU or GPU go above 60 C and I'm not really overclocking, so I havent worried too much yet.
