    Installed a vertical gpu mount today, the meshify S2 already has one but it mashes the gpu against the glass, I haven't even tried it but it would only suit a watercooled card.

    Planning some sleeved cables, something in silver/grey/black for the 24 pin ATX and.... 24 Pin GPU!

    The cyberpunk image is actually a gif, so it does things, looks pretty good I think.

    Wow, stunning, very clean, the LCD screen on the 3080 also looks really good :thumbup:

    Thanks, pretty much a full build today as I had to tear the system apart as I needed to do some cutting to fit the vertical mount, so i properly managed all the cables as I went, after a year of tinkering it had become pretty messy in there.

    Looks 100%
    This is the one i ordered, but cancelled after 5 weeks no shipping and AMD announcement.
    Picked it because i vertical mount as well and the RGB fans, it looks just as glorious as i imagined and it was also one of the cheaper ones on offer to boot. Top choice imho.

    Yeah it's a pretty decent mix overall. People will say it's just Galax (some sort of lesser AIB? I don't get it, but anyways) but I'm not too fussed by that regardless. So far I've been happy with it aesthetically and base performance. Not too noisy when ramping up during game play, software is ok....although one small bug (?) when trying to use RGB from the RGB motherboard header, every time I boot into windows it puts RGB control back to the software rather than the motherboard, so I have to select the option again, i.e. at every reboot of window it's forgetting my setting. Anyways, that's not a big issue really. card isn't too huge, sits nicely vertically, certainly not the worst looking card around (yes FE edition I'm looking at you)....so overall I'm pretty happy with it. Still yet to get into ocing territory though. The 1-click oc is handy for ease, I'm still yet to try the oc scanner so that will be interesting.

    Galax is a fine brand, they did better than Gigabyte with the capacitors. RGB is always a headache, for some reason my CPU water block defaults back to red every 5th restart or so.

    Haha yeah, same deal, everything looks good, lights are all set to white and then boom, one day you got a red light here, an orange one over there and the ram has gone dark. I don't mind being able to see the componants and a neat build but its a pain in the ass sometimes.

    Ahhh so yeah could be just RGB, but it's something you can live with as it doesn't effect performance. For me it really is a first world problem.....I have to go in each day and select the box, so no biggie. Hopefully a future fix will be available at some point :thumbup:

    yeah I was pretty stoked, I saw it come up super early.....was a massive discount from the regular prices.....maybe something like $100 off the total of two sets. Took a while to get here from the UK but worth the wait : )
