Description

Hello All. I'm back again with yet another build. How could I resist with new CPU's and GPU's on the market? This time I decided to go the Mini-ITX route. This is my first ITX build. It wasn't very difficult because the case I used had a lot of room to work with. I actually went the ITX route because my buddy had this Evolv Shift X case sitting unused.

I was going to go the Ryzen 2700x / X470-i route initially, but I was unable to catch the 2700x in stock when I was ready to buy. As you can see, the 9900k was in stock, so back to intel I went. I wanted this build to be easy and quick so took the idea of a custom loop off of the table (I may do it later down the line), and went with a 240mm AIO. I liked the look of the OLED panel on the new ASUS coolers so went with that. As for the GPU, I was initially going for the 2080, but after switching to the 9900k I figured why not go all in.

Update:

I completely lost my mind an purchased a Titan RTX. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t have an answer. I also added 2 more 120mm fans to the radiator to create a push/pull setup.

Pictures added.

why did you buy windows 10 OS for full price

  • 10 months ago

I didn’t. None of those prices are accurate. I just picked the parts that are in my pc.

It wasn’t a mistake... just no reason for me to buy it.

aw man this build is amazing! Really wish the RYUO allowed for 90 degree rotation instead of just 180 though (I have the same issue in my build) How do you like it so far?

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah, that’s dissapointing. I was thinking of rotating the block 90 degree’s, but its not worth the effort lol.

So far so good. I just can’t stop looking at the bottom of the case and dwelling on all the wasted space.

This is like exactly what I'm about to build expect with a 9900x and some large hdd storage as well. Only other thing is I'm going full ATX. Also how are your cpu temps with that cooler?

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

there really isn't any space in the case for large drives. I do have 32TB of external HDD storage, so the 3TB of internal SSD should suffice. Temps never hit tjmax even under full load so its acceptable. I did add an additional fan at the top of the case for more intake so that may be helping.

650W PSU? That'd be fine for a stock 2070, but a 2080 TI and a Titan RTX?

  • 10 months ago
  • 2 points

It's enough power, even with the OC. I do have a 850w Asus Thor on the way though.

Well you bought pretty much the best GPU going at the moment. Great parts list. Build wise, lots of pics, do not see a good overview of setup and pics of completed case. Possible I missed them, move Pics towards front. Potentially epic build here with an awesome case, lets see it.

All of the pics are there.

You can totally justify that Titan RTX purchase by having it run distributed computing projects that benefit the world like folding@home! The Titan series is more suited for that kind of thing over gaming.

The ROG coolers are overpriced.

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

I think they are accurately priced. Considering the average price of decent AIO's and add to that that the ROG coolers give you top notch fans and a customizable OLED display.

Insane completely over-the-top build! +1 just for the pictures tho.

What temps are you getting with this build? I want to do a build similar, but with a 2080ti instead, I really am eyeing the 9900k. I just don't want to choke it with poor thermals.

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

This is a pretty hot case. My 9900k is at a steady 39 degrees during daily tasks. Thats using the the XMP profile at 4.7 all cores.

Hey! I forgot to ask previously what are your temps for the 2080ti while gaming. I know you swapped for the Titan, but was wondering if you remember any temps while gaming.

  • 9 months ago
  • 2 points

I'm actually back to the 2080ti now. I can't recall the exact temps but they were at the very high end. somewhere in the 80's with the shift x case

  • 9 months ago
  • 2 points

Ahh ok ok got it. I actually after further review that this case is only appropriate with water cooling and I honestly don't want that hassle. I'll be going with the Louqe Ghost s1. I've seen enough to know the temps there for a 2080ti would be good especially if I have something blowing air on it.

Sooooo....... about your other gpu. you wouldn't mind donating to a poor mac user XD

Good day! Please tell me about temperature your system (CPU, PCH and graphics card)? I have the same body and want to replace my old GTX970 (temperature reaches 78-80 degrees Celsius) for new RTX2080. I'm afraid of overheating and throttling. Thx for answer!

Did you pay for the TITAN RTX because there is no price (same with the PSU and windows 10).

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

all the prices are linked through PCPARTPICKER, sometimes the links go down and the price can't be pulled... but to answer your question, ofcourse i paid for all my parts.

You could have gone with the 2080 ti in sli for the same price as the gpu. Also the 2080 ti is only out performed by the titan by 2-8 frames, I suggest that you return that titan and get two 2080 ti in sli. Another thing, please remove the "tempered glass" sticker.

Wellllll.....

It’s an Mini ITX build.

That’s all I have to say about that.

  • 10 months ago
  • 0 points

Yeah, but even considering that, you could have saved about $1000 if you ditched two frames and gone with an rtx 2080 ti

  • 10 months ago
  • 0 points

I guess you didn't read my description... I have the 2080 ti as well. I also bought the Titan RTX just because. So apparently the price difference between the cards were a non-factor.

  • 10 months ago

So you blew $2500 for nothing?

I guess you’re not familiar with my builds. Go take a look at all my previous ones. I like over doing it.

Looking at your comments, I see you give out a ton of unnecessary criticism, without having a completed build posted on here yourself.

Constructive criticism is needed some time, but the back and forth “trolling” is not.

Pretty tough for the fellow to do SLI with a mini ITX. Doing as you suggest would mean an entirely new case and motherboard. Also, SLI is only applicable for games that scale with it.

Yeah, but even considering that, he/she could have saved about $1000 they ditched two frames and gone with an rtx 2080 ti

I think at the end of the day it's all about what someone wants to do. Obviously, he's worked to get to a position where he can spend that money and be happy about having his over the top build made. I'm sure he knows what the price is. I get what your mindset is, but trying to tell someone how to spend their money is a little intrusive. Just let the man enjoy his earnings Lol.

i was just saying it isn't smart money management, if I had more than enough money that I could just blow on this build i would have still gone with an rtx 2080 ti

  • 10 months ago

Well if he can blow it then he's doing some managing correctly somewhere. XD
