Just put some tape over the XMP LED, black electrical tape maybe?
Otherwise fantastic build.
Very. Very nice.
Honestly I'm not a huge RGB person, I mainly stick with black and white, maybe blue if I'm wanting colour.
But you made the cyan/hot pink work a la Hotline Miami style.
Motherboard and GPU choices are top notch, I heavily respect an ASUS user. I myself use a Strix 1070 and Z270-AR board in my soon-to-be upgraded personal rig.
Peripheral choice is solid, I'm rocking a K70 Lux and M65 Pro (but don't quite have the Dollarydoos to afford HD700's)
Power supply choice is great, EVGA make some brilliant pieces.
I like the choice to use purely NVME based storage to remove as many SATA plugs as possible...I know firsthand how painful they can be to manage when you have fan controllers and water cooling components hogging them all.
My only "critique" as such is your lack of ultrawide monitor, and while yes this is personal opinion and it is entirely tongue in cheek; ultrawide displays are incredible, and you'll never want to not use one once you've tried it.
Well deserved feature, just stick around for the upcoming build from myself Skydancer.
This is a good looking build. +1 Mate
Beautiful, not a fan of the whole red thing (imho of course) but still looks stunning besides my own tastes.
I believe those are the Poseidon cards not the Strix ones (that In Win Infinity Mirror gives it away)
Overall you were going to get the feature, there was no question about that.
Great work and best of luck in the future.
The whole flipped thing isn't my style, but I do greatly appreciate the effort and dedication that went into the process.
The Punisher res looks spot on.
Great work overall.
Well....****, I'm speechless. Take your upvote and add it to the other 200-odd you have. <3
Beautiful colour scheme, red/black is overused and I'd say the same for black/green.
Black, white and blue is the way of the future. (As stated in my own build Mont Blanc)
The first picture of the painted fans looked scary...as it looked like the paint built up and solidified; but the final product is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and enthusiasm, worthy for that Predator you've hooked it up to.
Fantastic work, enjoy your feature.
Sorry for being so late. I got a 5 day weekend.
I believe I put the out lead from the fan hub into one of the chassis fan slots, or there's an extra slot above the CPU fan that I'm using. It's one of the two, also in your BIOS just make sure you switch from DC to PWM or you won't have the control. Cheers.
Please feature this, I will riot if it is not.
Beautiful aesthetics, even if I'm not a fan of orange.
Delidding process was easy? I've thought about it but you know, risks (not really looking to spend another $500 on a cpu when my current one hits 5Ghz pretty easy)
Well done, welcome to the MR. First question you will be asked is whether you applied your thermal paste in a dot or line.
Corsair peripherals are good. I personally am not a fan of red and black; however it does look good from a build standpoint.
Overall good work.
I build PC's as a hobby/job and I've never used any sort of bracelet. I build on a flat, wooden bench and have a big metal support that I touch before handling any components.
Strix cooler? Hairdryer? I've never heard that card even whisper to me...albeit I have the 1070 variant but still...same cooler.
Beautiful, try playing with the fan curves to get desired temp/noise.
Also is there extra storage or just the one m.2? That's not a lot....you will probably find yourself running out pretty quick.
I beg to differ, ASUS have always been the best to me: whether it's products or service they have always been above and beyond.
I'm sorry for your negative experiences with them.
Well I mean, from every review I've seen on the 1080ti Poseidon cards they've been quite literally the best 1080ti's yet. Overclocked further than anything (in this case JayzTwoCents) than he's ever seen before, and on water they're even better. Back up your claims when you make them.
Props for using the prettiest damn motherboard in the world.
As a diehard ASUS fan it's hard to develop a love for another product, but first the Taichi stole my heart; and then the Designaire just decided to become the new thing in my life.
You got a +1 for your name alone.
+1 for the Asus gear
I absolutely don't love Asus to death what are you talking about
Glances at my Strix 1070

I am your new daughter. You're welcome.
Give me updates on how the delid goes, my 7700k runs with a Fractal Design Kelvin S36 and never goes over 60C.
So yes, please tell me how the delid goes and I might just follow suit.
+1 for Motherboard, it's my new favourite board; taking the throne from the Taichi series.
Dark Souls, yes please.
I'm a long standing Intel fan (Absolutely nothing against AMD though, actually doing a client build with the 1800x and really looking forward to it)
I love your decision to go with ASUS Not because I love them too much or anything... They're reliable to the grave and I've never had anything fail from them ever.
This build is exactly what I would do if I had the cash to build one.
Scroll down, you'll find not one but TWO 1080ti's
This is gorgeous
If you want my completely non-biased opinion get the Strix 1080ti
All that aside, +1
Good job on the feature, the blue and green cable in that one photo though...
Grats mate, you did it.
If this doesn't get featured, I will riot.
I will riot until it's featured. And I will not stop.
You get all the points. Love it.
I like this idea, I like this theme..very similar to my own PC Mont Blanc themed black and white.
+10 points for colour scheme.
GPU does need an update, colour of the walls behind it make me a little scared though.
All in all, great build.
What's your dog clocked at? Mine's set around 4.9Borkahertz
Dog is currently running at 4.8Bhz (borkahertz)
Cheers for the comment,
All American, with slightly-less-American spelling
I know I'm late...but
I avoided Gigabyte and MSI for the very fact that the majority of their components had a major colour scheme already.
like seriously MSI, you don't need RGB on a GPU that is half red
It's alright for a cooler.
Others perform better (NZXT, Corsair) but that one is by no means a waste of cash.
Sorry to revive an old thread, but what were the temps like with the s36? I'm picking one up and would like to know what temps to expect
