Description

I have been waiting for this build for several months. I am so excited for Ryzen 3000. I will eventually be setting up a custom loop, but first I will be upgrading my 2080 to the super and waiting for a waterblock for that. This was a really fun build. The Corsair 680X case is awesome to build in, although I should have paid more attention because my graphics card BARELY fit. The edge of the fan shroud is almost touching the intake fans. I will be switching the fans for the radiator, moving the white fans to the top of the case, and the black fans to the inside. I had planned on doing that to begin with but just had a brain fart and messed it up. All in all, very fun and I think it looks great.

when you spend more on your mono then your actual cpu.

Im more impressed that the cooling, cpu cooler and fans, costs more than tbd cpu too ;)

Lol thanks. 3 fans came with the case. I had some fans from a previous build as well. Only thing i bought (for this build) was the cooler.

This board is awesome. I wanted to be able to throw m.2 and sata drives at it. I can have up to 3 m.2 drives and 4 sata drives plugged in at the same time. The m.2 drives dont disable any of the sata ports either.

Technically they do, M.2 is just a PCIe shape (same as 2.5" floppy disk shaped) used for direct contact with mobo PCIe lanes and NVMes are the ones that occupy the most of lanes, leaving no headroom for SATAs. Contrarily, M.2 SATAs are equally used so all ports can be fully exploited.

Everything is stable. 3600 is whats recommended but i already had 3200.

you can clock that to 3400 or maybe even 3466 through xmp config if you're feeling bold. my trident 3466 clocks to 3600 no problem.

LOVE IT, IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL! But why'd you get a 3rd 120gb?

Boot drive so... drivers, windows, linux maybe. Perhaps just another smaller drive for a less frequently used OS.

Thank you very much. I appreciate that. And Yeah, its just the boot drive for Win X.

Same here. I'm looking to see some config on custom waterloops inside the 680X (nice case btw).

Those are very similar specs to the build I want. Might I ask what FPS you get on 1440p? If you’re on another resolution, I still wanna know.

I was getting around 70 on Anthem at 1440p. WoW maxes out my 144hz monitor. Easily over 60 on everything I play.

Awesome, I have almost something similar in mind. What is the Monitor you use?

Sorry for the delayed response. I use an LG 32GK650F-B 32" monitor. I really like it a lot!

I have this case and i have a comparatively short Galax 1080Ti in it..i wanted to upgrade to the MSI RTX 2080Ti Gaming X TRIO but didn't think it would fit....but you seem to have managed it with the 2080 (which is the same length) so I have renewed hope :-)....does it have any space before the front intake fans?

  • 5 months ago

It was a VERY tight fit. You won't be able to put a radiator and fans in the front though. Only fans. Even then, there is only about 1/8th of an inch clearance. The case has the ability to mount the GPU vertically with a riser cable. Not sure if this would allow a rad/fan combo or not though.

I am currently in a very similar place to you when you were fitting the gpu. I have the MSI NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER and am having problems actually fitting the damn thing in. Once in, it - like yours - is VERY close, if not touching the black fan shroud. I have seen it is possible to fit the gpu vertically, but it sits right next to the glass panel, which wouldn't be good for the temp. I want to keep the gpu, but am considering getting a longer case. Is it worth it? Is the gpu ok to be in such an enclosed space, or should i sell this case and get a larger one - Possibly a Lian-Li. Would appreciate any advice as this is my first pc build and is about £3000. I dont want to damage the gpu in any way, so I will take any suggestions.

do you experience any high temps or airflow problems with the gaming x pushing the gpu size limit ?

What temp does everything get to under load?

Can I ask why you're bottom fans are set as intake? Won't that add negative pressure against your GPU?

My guess is that the bottom fans would be blowing onto the GPU as well, helping cool it down a little more.
