It all started with a laptop (ASUS G751JL) that I bought in 2015 for casual gaming and software development. Overclocking the GTX 965M was enough to play most AAA titles at 60 FPS on moderate settings. I was pretty satisfied with the performance and as time passed on, I kept adding more and more to my Steam library. Little did I know that all it takes is a half cup of coffee to put an end to everything so far. I spilled some leftover coffee over the laptop keyboard and it died without blinking twice. Fast forward couple of days and I got an Alienware 17 with GTX 1070. And since I couldn't part from coffee, I had to buy an external keyboard (Razer Chroma V2), mouse (G502) and a GSync monitor just so that coffee can't get in my way again. Fast forward a year and now I needed more.. I needed more quality, more FPS, more of everything.. And the fact that I never ever moved my laptop from the side table setup made me realize that I didn't need a laptop anymore, I could do fine with a desktop. And that is the road I took. This was in August 2018. I started collecting parts from September and finally finished my build after Amazon delivered the 9900K last week.
I tried adding everything that is part of this build including tiny components that I had to use to build this. I'm not a whole lot into RGB thing but I do like an elegant lighting and having an option is always good. If I don't feel like it, I could always turn them off.
Everything in this build is latest gen except the Graphic Card. I tried looking for 3 fan GTX 2080Ti everywhere but only ebay seemed to have them for like $2000 which definitely I wasn't going to buy. After the reviews came out, I made the decision to get a 1080Ti instead, so I went with MSI Gaming X Trio.
I had no trouble assembling anything in this build. I definitely didn't hit the silicon lottery but my 9900K runs fine at 5.0 Ghz all core (1.32V) along with the memory running @ 3400Mhz (CL14).
It does look better in a video than in pictures:-
P.S. The lights do look bright in the pictures but they hardly distract at all.
Edit: The GPU sag looks bad in the tilted pictures but its not really that bad in reality. Look at the non tilted pictures or videos for better perspective.
