Description

Purchased the 1080 ti in September 2018 as I intended to build a PC then, however, its taken me this long to decide on the rest on the system.

Overall the build was painless and fun, with the only annoyances being cable management but nothing a little time couldn't fix, although I don't believe its perfect just yet.

My idea was to build an all MSI/Corsair system but I later decided to go for a Phanteks case as it looks awesome and I'm glad I did because the case was easy to build in and looks amazing on my desk.

Haven't touched Overclocking on the CPU yet and I've only messed around with the GPU, but at stock all my games run at a more than high enough FPS to keep up with the 144hz display.

Only things I plan on changing are the cables as I would like to add sleeved ones, and the RAM which I would like to upgrade to 32GB sometime in the future.

This is a gaming build, I don't plan on doing any streaming. The 1440p 144hz monitor I got it amazing, 100 times better than my old 1080p one. Thats a nice build on a low budget though.

I was going to get an 8700k but the price of the 9700kf dropped to the same as the 8700k so I thought why not

There are cheaper options for the 1080ti. You just have to look hard.

Looks fabulous! Just wondering, have you tried getting Mystic Light to work with the Corsair products for RGB? If so, how's it been?

Thank you, Mystic light is fine for MSI products and can control a few corsair things like the RAM and Keyboard, but the options for lighting effects are really limited compared to iCUE. They won't annoy each other too much as long as SDK is disabled in iCUE and you just leave the corsair products off in Mystic light (And don't use ALL SYNC). I just wish iCUE could control the MSI lights because going into Mystic light every time I change profiles in iCUE its really annoying.

I appreciate the ideas this has given me. I want a GTX 1080 ti GPU but was not sure about the other components. While this is a little above budget it has given me a place to start.
