I'mz a happy man :)
Took my sweet time saving for this one and, after building it the first time around, I realized I bought a used and defective GPU (which was a month past it's warranty period) . Fast forward a few fortunate events later... I have the opportunity to pull the trigger on an EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3. Trigger pulled. Build finished. Couldn't be happier with it.
I'll snap some better pics the next time I have to open this rig up--the position it's in right now isn't exactly conducive to a successful photo shoot.
