The monitor is incredible. The only weak point is HDR 400. I'm not big on HDR, so it doesn't bother me. The monitor provides plenty of brightness and the colors are incredible because of the IPS nanotechnology. The only game that I have run into, that doesn't support ultra-wide is StarCraft 2. All the other games that I play like Overwatch, Borderlands 3, Call of Duty, Rage 2 etc... support it. My 2080ti doesn't exceed 74 degrees.
It's been a work in progress.....
The 9900K is a beast for gaming.
Thank you. I really appreciate it. The case has the slots included to mount the GPU vertically.
Thank you :)
Thank you. I highly recommend the Basilisk Ultimate. The PETG pads on the bottom are incredible. Also the Razer Optomechanical switches feel great and have a satisfying click. The mouse also looks good! I did pick NVME, because I already had one.
Thank you. Small world...lol. I appreciate the support😃👍
Thanks. What's interesting is that on an Asus Call of Duty motherboard, I could only get to 5Ghz stable on all cores.
Thank you. Me too😅
Thanks👍 It definitely wasn't cheap. What's nice about PC Building is that if you don't like something, you just change it/upgrade it. It's been a constant evolving work in progress.
Thank you. I appreciate it😁🙌
Vertical GPU is perfect in this case even on air. My pictures must have not shown how much open-air flow is around the glass in front of the GPU. There's also a good amount of space from the GPU to the glass. When it comes to gaming laptops I'd have to say that the Area 51M is one of the best. It's my 6th RTX laptop. The 9900 K and 2080 perform incredibly well with fantastic temps. I couldn't be more proud of Dell/Alienware. Now all they have to do is come up with that UFO concept that would match my laptops design language perfectly🙂
Whats a pogger? I guess I could Google it.....
I thought the exact same thing, when I first saw it shown at computex by Hardwarecanucks.
Thank you 🙂👍
Yup. I love it.
Yes. 5.2Ghz on all cores. Stable.
Its awesome! It's a lot bigger in person. Building in the sub chassis is super duper easy. Where it gets weird is that you have to connect the io stuff to the motherboard, in a way......so that you can pull out sub chassis for service or display. It's definitely a stunner! My air-cooled 2080ti Xreme doesn't exceed 75c under full load. All-in-all I guess you could say I am ecstatic🙂👍
Sweet build! I like it. I currently have almost a completely different PC now. I'll have to post it soon :)
For some reason the option to add more pics inst showing up :(
Good morning. Thanks. With the Castle 240 there is absolutely no clearance issues on either side of the pump/block. There is a little more than half a centimeter of space left, once it's installed between the ram and pump hoses. I'll post a better pic in a few minutes.
Thank you! I really appreciate it.
I think it's worth it for looks. It does run 5 degrees warmer than my previous 2080ti Strix. Other than that, it performs just like my previous 2080ti.
It interferes with Corsair's RGB lighting on the ram. It does not affect Corsair LL fans.
The only reason I uninstalled it was because it interferes with my Corsair RGB Vengeance Pro ram. If you don't have that specific ram, you are all good.
Absolutely no problems. The only thing annoying is the RGB Fusion software. I set my GPU and motherboard with it, and then uninstalled it.
The Aorus Xtreme 2080ti with Samsung ram is definitely reliable.
Me too :(
For everything except the GPU(separate compartment), airflow is amazing. Before I had a Strix 2080ti. It would max out at 76C in the GPU compartment. I relocated the Quadstellar's temp sensor to the GPU compartment to open the front panels when the GPU reaches 56C. My current 2080ti has less than stellar cooling, and reaches 79C-83C. It's no fault of the case manufacturer....I would make sure your GPU has a full 3 fan setup or pushes air out of the case.
It wasn't hard. It was awkward. Having to rotate the entire case takes a little getting use to, and the motherboard is inverted.
I'll have to get another person for +2....
+1 for the cat!
I just got the Razer HDK!
I just expanded!
They are pretty much just rgb led extension cables. They can be controlled by a board(hub) that goes into the pcie spots of the case or by Aura Sync etc...
Sorry I'm late to respond. I had to replace my Quadstellar with another new one because of an issue with one of the actuators.
I did try single GPU and temps were fine. When 1080ti sli is in the GPU chamber, it produces a lot of heat. Temps can be fine with an aggressive fan curve profile, but it creates a lot of fan noise. When you remove the GPU bracket, it is more visually appealing to see through the tempered glass panels.
I know a lot of reviewers dislike the app. I personally like it. The lighting profiles are awesome and being able to read the temps and adjust fan speed rocks!!
I only tried one 1080ti in the GPU compartment. Although I didn't experience any thermal throttling, I didn't like the high temps off of a single GPU. So because of that, I didn't even try SLI in the GPU compartment. If you are going liquid loop, I would recommend the GPU compartment. If you are going with air cooling, you are better off using the motherboard directly. SLI also looks way better through the tempered glass from the motherboard, once you remove the GPU bracket panel. One of my pictures shows this. You can add two extra fans to the already included 4 up front, to blow air directly over both GPU's in the central motherboard area.
+1 nice build!
Thanks. Currently I have my PC in the bedroom, so that I can watch movies from the bed. When it comes to my wife and this room, I have no jurisdiction on how it is decorated lol.
