Nice build. The Taichi motherboards are gorgeous. You got a solid processor for the price they are going at these days. I'm in the same boat. If you want the PCIE lanes, this really is a great choice right now. 4.4 Ghz @1.35v here on an MSI board. Should be doable for the Noctua cooler.

Also, I'm an AMD guy. So I'm super jealous of your Vega card.

It's an OEM Dell board. I think it's made by MSI.

You can put the fan on the other side of the 212 Evo to free up that RAM slot.

4 way SLI wasn't common to see even when it was "supported". How about some more pics? Please?

Yes. XSPC waterblocks on the GPUs. It's not too difficult to do. Bending the hard tubing can be a little frustrating if you decide to go that way. It just takes a little practice.

The lighting around the desk is just a cheap 15 foot strip I found on amazon. The lighting in the case is Cablemods UV led strips.

I don't know which BIOS version adds compatibility for the 845. I'd just get the newest version available. The issue with updating the BIOS is you need a supported CPU to do it. If you need to update the bios for the X4 845 to work, you need a second(supported) processor to update the bios on this motherboard.

Thanks. That's no joke about the dog. I'm pretty shameless.

I had a Koolance bridge for my last sli setup. I thought if I was going to take the time to bend some tube, I'd bend all the tube.

Thanks. I take everything apart for cleaning periodically. So dust buildup isn't a huge issue for me. That thick Alphacool radiator in the front is what I had and it has worked out well for me for a long time. I might switch it out so I can fit fans on the inside. The front mounted fans are choked a bit their positioning. My friend built the desk for me. It's probably the best addition to my setup. It's nice having all this room for activities. I did some work on the cables.

40lbs. Idles around 38C. The included processor is an older model. But it's reliable.

No HDD because I don't need one. There is an m.2 drive. It's in the part list and probably at least one picture. And the FE 1080s were the only 1080s in stock when i was ordering.

The top card sits somewhere in the low to mid 50s and the bottom card is usually 6-8 degrees less. It depends on what I'm doing and how much heat the CPU is contributing to the loop.

Thanks! The 2000RPM Noctuas aren't too loud. I'm using speakers now instead of headphones and I don't find the noise to be an issue. I'm using Cablemods UV LED strips.

I think most people are just upvoting the dog. Regardless, I post here because I enjoy computers. And I think a lot of other people do to. I'm not chasing your upvote.
