Description

DAW / Video / Gaming / VR+AR Dev Workstation

First build. Went all out. I won a free RTX 2080 Ti from a raffle at work. Ended up going with an ASUS ROG RTX 2080ti (3 fan). I'm a professional musician- so I designed this mammoth of a PC to be mostly an audio tracking/mixing/editing workhorse (UA Audio Apollo Twin, Pro Tools, Reason, Ableton Live). Beefy enough to handle the most demanding games. Love everything about it.

Was able to OC the GPU to a good 1850mhz without the RTX breaking a sweat. 64GB Trident RGB kit operates nicely at 4000mhz. I'm currently running at 3600.

Thinking of adding another 970 Evo Plus in the second m.2 slot (970 Pro in first m.2 slot). Love the connectivity of the Z390 Designare. I own a lot of Thunderbolt 3 devices/hubs critical to my workflow and the Designare lives up to the job of handling all of them.

Hi,

How is the motherboard performance so far? would you recommend it over aorus and do you use it on daily basis?

If ur big into Overclocking the Aorus might be better suited based on what I’ve read. From my experience; this has been more than adequate. Ram performs well clocked at 4000 and CPU at 5.0ghz. Connectivity with thunderbolt 3 was what pushed me toward the designare and have no regrets and no complaints. Would recommend the designare to anyone.

How do you like that deepcool gpu holder?

At first I wasn't able to get the RGB working right due to the 12v RGB header on the motherboard. It was more than adequate as a gpu support without it. Then I got the converter in there and brought the RGB aesthetic to another level. Highly recommend the gpu support and the converter (if necessary).

Hey bro nice build i also bought the same mother board, along with the nzxt z63 and gskil trident z royal ram, and aer rgb fans, and rtx 2060. Im also going to be using it for music production. Just curious though, im yet to build my pc, however i have read that many people have experienced difficulties with CAM and rgb fusion software casuing pc crashing and freezing (specifically CAM) have you experienced any of this when producing? has it interefered with your DAW at all? Im looking at achieving a static white colour across all my components like yours. Was it hard to achieve do you have any advice? are you controlling all you rgb colours through only 2 programs which are CAM and the rgb fusion software for you montherboard which identifies and controls the colour of your Gskill ram? or you also using another program to control the lighting of you ram? much appriecated thanks
