ive been loving my 1080ti itx build. looks great in the living room and its powerful enough to play some newer games on high. i still barely use it, my kid likes to play spyro.
just installed a xpg gammix s11 pro 1tb nvme, only spot on my MB is on the back so that kind of sucked having to remove everything to install it. the tiny cooler actually fit though which was nice.
My 1080Ti has been suiting me just fine as well. I don't game much either, but it seems to take whatever I throw at it pretty well. My monitor is only 1440 though, so it might not do as well when I move to a newer monitor.

I use a TV so I'm stuck at 60fps for the most part.

are gpus easier to get now?

Negative. I just lucked out with an AMD drop (directly from their website) a few months back. Now I find it a challenge to get cards. It's like gambling sorta but I don't sell them for a markup if I get any cards.

Nice build. Look at all that RGB!!! :giggle:

RBG will be disabled ;)

He’s going to the dark side!!!! :eek:

Yes.... Well not the Apple side lol ;)

Not sure what I’m supposed to be looking at, or what you’re reacting to?

Just saying 1.5V @ 4.8Ghz. Not crazy for the Ryzen 7 CPU's but a bit higher than I'm used to for my previous builds.

That’s what mine runs at. At first I thought I messed up on thermal paste. Did it again. That processor will bake you some cakes.

I’ve climbed a bit over 80C in productivity type loads. Typically while gaming, it’s in lower to mid-70s. But these chips run high voltage and pretty hot.

Said it on Discord but won the Newegg Shuffle yesterday after 30+ entries.

It was a bundle (Asus RTX 3080 Tuf & 27" Asus 1440p 165hz Curved Monitor).

Crazy how much these GPUs cost these days and how hard they are to get :(
