I originally started this build with 2 MSI 980Ti cards but quickly upgraded to a more reliable Zotac AMP Extreme 1080 GTX. Next was a series of failed MSI motherboards that had to be replaced under warranty. The next issue arose in the form of 2 bad sticks of G-Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 3200 with small short burns on a few pins. Unfortunately, the problems continued with the next issue being a dead Deskstar NAS 3TB 7200rpm HD, yay for warranties I was able to replace this rather expensive paperweight. At this point I was about ready to sell everything and go back to my old yet reliable z97 build. A fresh install of everything caused my problems to go away along with the previous mentioned issues. However, I decided to continue my war with being an unwilling and unpaid QC professional. In December of 2017 I got a better price on a new Empire Edition Titan Xp that aside from gaming advantages caused 3D modeling in Solidworks to run far better. The deep learning function properties of the fully unlocked GP 102 system makes FEA functions process much quicker than with previous GPUs. The next addition was a reasonably priced Samsung 4K 40" TV that has been excellent for productivity. I will never go back to only 2 panels on a design system in the future if I can help it. The final update came in the form of the newest Nvidia Titan RTX GPU that has been a noticeable upgrade from the previous Empire Edition Titan Xp in all but power consumption. I don't game as much as I used to which is fine because this build has turned into a fantastic design suite for Autodesk Inventor Professional 2019, AutoCAD 2017-18, and Solidworks 2018-19. I know it has taken a while for everything to work harmoniously but for the past year performance has been near perfect and with the last upgrade, I'm quite pleased. Feel free to ask me any questions about this build along with any problems that you, the reader might have with your own systems and I'll do my best to answer.
