I've not posted my updated rigs yet so I should remedy that!

 

The desktop:

  • CPU
    Delidded 8700k at 5.3Ghz and 1.36v with a -2AVX offset
    Aftermarket Rockit IHS
     
  • Motherboard
    ASRock Z370 Taichi
     
  • RAM
    32Gb 3200 DDR4
     
  • GPU
    EVGA 1080Ti FTW3 Hybrid
     
  • Case
    Customized H440
     
  • Storage
    240Gb SSD - Boot Drive
    480Gb SSD - Games
    500Gb SSD - Games
    8Tb HHD - Storage
     
  • PSU
    EVGA 1000w P2
     
  • Display
    Asus PG348Q - 3440x1440p 100Hz GSync
     
  • Cooling
    H110i GT with ML Pro fans
     
  • Keyboard
    Logitech G Pro
     
  • Mouse
    G903 with Powerplay

The 'laptop':

 

  • Base System
    Alienware 13 R3
     
  • CPU
    6700HQ
     
  • RAM
    16Gb 2400 DDR4
     
  • eGPU
    Alienware Graphics Amplifier
    - EVGA 1080Ti SC2 Hybrid
    - Corsair SF600
     
  • Storage
    512Gb NVME - Boot Drive
    500Gb SSD - Games
     
  • Display
    Alienware AW2518H - 1920x1080 240Hz GSync
     
  • Keyboard
    Logitech G810 Spectrum
     
  • Mouse
    G602

At some point I'll need to upgrade the laptop's external screen to something higher resolution to offset the weaker CPU but, for the time being, the 1080p screen is working well enough and I got it for free as part of a deal when I sold off some of my old 4790k hardware. I'm also looking forward to upgrading to the new 200Hz 1440p Ultrawide screens when they finally launch, provided they aren't too expensive, and might also spring for the next line of GPU unless they don't provide any significant performance gains.

lol @ the 1000W power supply and then not even using a GPU. your build is probably using like a total of 150-175W at peak right now, :p

They've fallen off a lot in the past month or so. They're pretty close to what they were before the mining craze took off - which means they're still overpriced because of time passed, but not as much of a tums festival as they were a few months ago.

Yeah, the "better" ones seems to be around USD $1100 here at the moment. It might be possible to find it cheaper overseas (with the risk that comes with that)

 

Edit: By comparison the price for the rest of the build (including OS and Office) was USD $2500 in todays exchange rates (got the ram cheap from Newegg)

The onboard Intel "Gfx" were just too awful. Bought the cheapest card I could find that would work as a stop gap solution. Got myself a 4GB Asus GTX 1050 Ti.

I was positively surprised actually, only game that struggles so far is The Witcher III, but I could tone down the settings a bit. Everything else it runs almost as well as my old laptop (Gtx 880m card with 8GB)

Even better, the single fan makes no audible noise, the whole thing being drowned out by the rather noisy WD Black HDD's ;)

When not seeking on the disks, I have to really struggle to hear the PC at all, even when under load.

Put the 1080ti back in the main PC, since I got the 49" 32:9 Samsung CHG90 a couple months ago. It's only half of 4K but has HDR and 144hz. I notice pixel density took a hit (3840x1080) but the speed that things move without blur makes up for it. So I figure 4K for home theater and 144hz for desktop PC

 

i7 8700K (6-core) @ 5ghz 1.30v w/ Corsair H150i RGB (360mm AIO)
32GB DDR4 3000 Vengeance RGB
Gigabyte Aorus z370 G5
GTX 1080ti Seahawk
Samsung 1TB ssd
Zotac Sonix 500GB NVME
Sound Blaster X AE-5
750w psu
20x Corsair LNP light strips
6x Corsair LL120 fans
Corsair Commander light/fan controller
Corsair Crystal 570x case

Wait, the backlighting turned to red/yellow when you fired the flame thrower and returned to blue when you let off? Im totally not jealous of your rig. No siree!

Man, been a long time since I've been around these parts.

MSI H81M-P33

Intel Pentium G3258 (OC'd to 4.2Ghz)
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws
DDR3-1600
Powercolor R9 270
Corsair 450VX PSU
OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD
WD Black 320GB + 1TB HDD
Coolermaster CM 690
BenQ 24" G2400WD LCD
LG IPS231 23" LCD

 

Long enough that I missed updating this when I picked up a 4460, I think, to replace the Pentium. Was a pain when Windows 10 came out and killed my overclock, then games started not booting if I didn't have a quad core at least. Ah well, just popped in to say that I am no long Deraldin of the Damned System. I actually have something not pulled out of the bargain bin these days!

 

ASUS x470-I

AMD Ryzen 2600X

Noctua U9S

16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000

EVGA 1070 TI SC

Corsair SF600 PSU

480GB ADATA PCI-E NVMe m.2 SSD

1TB Crucial MX500 Sata m.2 SSD

NCASE M1

ASUS VA32AQ 32" LCD

LG IPS231 23" LCD

 

It's only just been set up, so it's all running stock at the moment, so we'll have to see how far I can/want to push it. Right now it is dead silent at idle. GPU and PSU both run passive at idle so the only moving parts are the CPU fans and you can only hear them when you put your head right next to the case. Still need to do some troubleshooting though. The Crucial SSD isn't being registered for some reason and I need to get some thermal tape for the ramsinks before I put the aftermarket cooler on the GPU. Otherwise it's been pretty great so far. It's really nice not having to worry about whether or not you can maintain 20FPS without dropping everything to low when I'm now staying at 60 on high.

Only one of the M.2 ports supports SATA mode so make sure you have the SSDs the right way around.

Already cleared that. The front mounted port is the SATA compatible port and it worked with a different M.2 drive. Wish I had another SATA compatible port to check the non-functional drive with.

Could try an adapter to convert the M.2 SATA drive into a conventional SATA drive. Should run about $10.

Fixed it. The drive was fine. It didn't like the ASUS overclock. Resetting BIOS default caused the drive to show up. Not sure which specific setting that ASUS changed was the cause, but that's fine. It's all confirmed working now so I can play around with settings at my leisure without having to open the thing up again. For now at least.
