Almost 100% sure ram cannot be an issue unless you put a fan on them :)

Ahah! if you're only playing CS-go @ 1080p I don't think you don't even need a 1080ti to cap the refresh rate of the best monitor.

I'm getting 2 more TI because my other rig need the 2 I have now and they do pay for themselves in the long run, otherwise I wouldn't be getting 2 more :)

Now I can't tell you if it'll fit but I think the Enthoo pro list as being able to fit up to 360mm rad. I'd only check where in the case it fits as most AOI hose (at least the 2 I purchased) are pretty short and won't let us move them anywhere but to the top slot right over the CPU.

Good luck with you build :)

Well the case is seriously great. Even with GPU/CPU at 100% for hours, temp of gpu never exceed 55c. To be honest, it's the first case I've used (not that I have used many and it's one of the first higher end I got myself) that made things easy enough to actually make my build clean looking. I am seriously not someone artistic and my pc usually look like a damn mess. As an example, my last pc was looking like this: http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3155798/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL

Now, I found it funny to see your GPU choice as I'm also receiving 2x 1080ti FTW3 hybrid next week (one is planned for the 11th the other for the 13t, damn newegg with 1 per 48hr limit). I'll swap to compare them to the MSI seahawk and those Seahawk are going into another build I have.

Installing the cooler and part was actually easy. I was affraid for the cable management as I'm real bad at it and always make a mess but with a case like this, it's really easier.

The one thing I didn't like about the cooler was that hoses are too short to put the intake toward the front of the pc and you end up having to put the intake toward the back where hoses get to do weird twist to fit.

I guess that's the tradeoff for not being confident enough to go full custom loop route.

CPU is usually around 35c when gaming and 60 will stress testing. Full prime95 test raise it to low 70c.

The CPU isn't delided but I OC'ed it to 5.1 @ 1.31v on all 6 cores.

I've done 2 hours @ 4k. Couldn't spend as much time as expected gaming as I first had to manage a few issue between the various display settings, HDR, 4:4:4 and such. I realized that even my high end OLED65C6P tv has some input lag issue @ 4k HDR which makes it unplayable for me. I have no way to time it, but I'd estimate it at over 200ms.

Might do some PUBG tomorrow but for now, I only did some Wildlands. 4K @ 4:4:4: with or without HDR moving 1 step down from ultra produced the best result as I can't stand dips under 60 fps. FPS were anywhere between 70-85 depending on the scene and had flawless/stutterless gameplay. I did move Temporal AA 2 notch up as even though visual result are great, SLI doesn't like it at all. Going with the mix of SMAA+FXAA gave those FPS settings while Temporal had between 55-65 fps.

SMAA+FXAA at ultra gave somewhere between 58-65 fps with a few micro stutter so I prefered to lower fidelity some.

The only negative comment I could give it, and it's seriously not a big one, is that if you are using SLI of gpu that have backplate like I do, the second one will need a few pounds of pressure to get it to click in the pcie slot because the backplates get to lie against the SATA shield.

They should have made the shield something as minimal as 1mm thinner.

It has awesome power phase and most user seems to OC with this one better than 95% of the other z370 boards out there.

I'll be doing some 4k gaming on monday and get back to you.

Been playing some PUBG at 2560x1600 ultra and it stays stable around 85-90fps. Wildlands at ultra + AA raised to the max also does 85-95fps at 2560x1600

I am totally aware of that.

I am too lazy and don't care about it at all while waiting for the nvidia one :)

I've got the exact same board on my new build.

Getting a 1080 ti Seahawk (with solid backplate) in the top slot was no trouble, but getting the 2nd to click in for the SLI was slightly trickier. It wasn't actually the amp-up cover getting in the way, but the Sata cover putting a small pressure on the backplate. It was minor enough to fit in with a little pressure. Cover would be better with 0.5mm thinner.

You might want to try getting a stock CPU. Delidding isn't needed at all with decent AIO cooler.

Just done building mine in a Luxe tempered glass 3 days ago :)

I saw your Sli bridge upside down and am raising you with a REAL upside down.
