    Thanks for the heads up btw, good looking out.

    Me: I can put my car service off a few weeks, no need to spend money right now.
    Also me: $4.5k for a computer I don't need? Well I MUST HAVE IT

    [​IMG]

    There is more rgb in this thing than I have had in my last 10 builds combined.

    Cons: No boxes for anything, no stock cooler for the 3090.
    Pros: 3090 strix, 5800x, anus dark hero and full loop for $4.5k

    I was skeptical about the amount of SSDs listed and assumed they had just got it wrong but it actually looks like there is 1x 870 pro 1tb, 1x 870 pro 500gb, and 2x2tb qvos. Madness.

    Now to decide what to split off and what to keep out of my 2 systems.

    Cheers, I have a quad screen simracing setup (triple for game, 1 for data) and a 2x34" desktop setup that only 1 monitor gets used for gaming etc.

    Plan would be to drive the 4x "Gaming" monitors off the 3080 and use the Asus card to drive the 2x data monitors.

    This warms my nerd heart.

    What resolution are your data monitors? The GT 710 is pretty low on bandwidth, for instance at 4K it can only drive two monitors @ 30Hz each.

    Most sim racing titles with telemetry output can be spat over a local network right? If you used an old laptop to drive your data screens you'd not need to add anything to your sim rig and may actually reduce the CPU load to boot.
    You can also do this to tablets and phones, but that's a different use case as I'm sure you know.

    Most builds that have excessive RGB aren't literal unicorn puke but there you go.

    Looks like whatever that came from had been on the green fairy too.

    I don't even fuck with RGB like that but I think anyone would put up with 'literal unicorn puke ' for those components at that price.

    And for the uninitiated whoever built that captured this moment perfectly.

    As cool as Broly is and as much as I do like Dragon Ball, the system will definitely be getting an update soon :leet: Just a tad too much rainbow for me.

    I wonder if the green liquid is car coolant? :lol:

    The good old nulon green :leet:

    Probably some neon cryofuel, can't imagine spending that much on ek gear to feed it a $15 bottle of car coolant

    Glad to see someone got it!
