It looks great! Definitely a unique option.

It's a pretty cheap hybrid option to get founders + 1080 hybrid kit, and all 1080ti's get pretty close performance regardless of design.

Absolutely beautiful build. I'm jealous of that case, if I built my computer today, I would've chosen the mATX over the ATX just for the hinged panel. Thumbscrews are annoying! Also, is it just the new case, or did you do some sort of custom paint finish? I only remember the EVOLV colors having a metallic finish.

Wow! Great build, similar aesthetics to mine, same cooler, evga hybrid, 6 HD120s, same case, lots of LED strips, I even have the acrylic panels! As much as I don't want to copy, that vented front looks great with the fans and improved airflow. You might have just convinced me to buy one!

I also have a 1080 ftw hybrid and had the same thoughts about the 1080Ti, but this is a great card that shouldnt have issues with new titles at high resolutions for at least a couple years. Wait to see what the next generation brings :) Great build.

No problem :) Unrelated - do you prefer the boom stand for your mic over an out-of-the-box desk stand? I have a blue yeti sitting right in front of me in a way that doesn't obscure my view and allows me to use very low mic gain. I thought about buying the boom arm for it but I don't pick up any vibrations anyway and I feel it would pick up more background being farther from your mouth.

May I ask, where did you buy the 2mm black acrylic panels? It would be nice in my Evolv, as it reflects GPU LEDs nicely and help black-out the build as in yours.

As far as I know the asus cards have 0db technology, meaning that depending on your fan curve, the fans are off until the GPU hits a certain temperature, then they kick in. It's for people who enjoy silent builds. Also, the size of your case, intake/exhaust fan balance, background GPU usage etc all factor in. It's not an easy answer. But if you notice your GPU fans aren't spinning while idling, then that's the simple and normal answer. and 53C is not dangerous by any means, your load temps are more important.

The GPU idling at 53, is that because of fans turning off before a set temp?

Fans are Corsair HD120s, coupled with a Corsair Lighting Node Pro for additional lighting effects. HD120

Lighting Node Pro

Yes HD120s. Corsair recently released the Lighting Node Pro, pretty much a Hue+ but more reliable hardware and better software, but fewer lighting effects for the included strips. You can also plug up to 6 HD120 fans into it, giving you access to the full RGB spectrum as well as some preset effects like rainbow. Picking one up asap, major upgrade to the HD120s.

You'll have fun with that 1080 hybrid. Mine OCs over 2100 easily. Hopefully the 1080Ti will come out in a Hybrid too.

No problem, I also control my strips through Aura since there's more options with 4 pin connectors and I enjoy the music effect. I'm getting the node for the fan color options.

Hey, I suggest you buy the Corsair Lighting Node Pro, it will be a 60$ immense upgrade to the HD120s, I saw a review on amazon with a strikingly similar build to yours, down to the asus fan cover... anyways the Node Pro unlocks the full RGB spectrum for your fans, allows crazy color schemes and effects like the NZXT Aer RGB, but these fans look better, and you control it all through Link software. Take a look and let me know what you think. I'm sure as hell getting one as soon as i have some extra $

If you want the best 4k experience, wait for the 1080ti to be released within the next month or two hopefully. Most likely (all speculation) Titan X performance but cheaper pricetag. It'll be a hell of an experience to wait for.

Awesome build. Are they UV LEDs or just Purple? And how was the space for the watercooling in that case? I have one too and plan to try a custom loop next time I upgrade.

Good job, again. Ensourced makes some great cables, and the corsair HD120s look great in this case. How is SLI treating you? Any issues during gaming?

I'm using a Dell S2716DG, one of the best Gaming 1440p monitors with g sync, 144hz, 1ms response time. Its a TN Panel but it looks just as good as IPS with the right settings. There are many good monitors like this, and new ones coming this year, pretty much comes down to grabbing one at a good price (sub 500-600$).

i have the same case with the same fans. They are the best :) If youre going for all out RGB try getting a long loop of a strip between the metal panel and the dust filter, it creates an awesome effect but you'll have to unscrew the white piece that surrounds the front power LED.

Lot of people jump into the scene with an idea in mind, and get quickly sucked into the part craze of finding better and better things. I originally had a simple 1070 build in mind, and here I am now with 6700k, 1080 hybrid, and ridiculous amount of aesthetic-related purchases.

I wouldn't worry about that, but double sided strips of tape would look better.

He could just move the tubes or angle them outwards, and if that's not enough, flipping the radiator would get them out of the way. It does look fine in the 2nd to last slot, but he's not using the full potential of the card. Other than that it's a slick build.

Yeah I was wondering if they would work with aura headers. Interesting that gigabyte has support for both types. They did really well with this mobo.

The perks of having the evolv atx TG. Also put lights behind the front vents, there's nothing quite like it. Amazing build and I'm jealous of your VIII Formula. In November they were all gone :(

Haven't checked mobo temps, but in the case (Enthoo Evolv ATX TG) it's just warm, most of the heat coming from the GPU, but of course the case could be cooler but I set the CPU and GPU fan curves for quiet operation in the lower loads. CPU idles in low 20s, haven't recorded temps while gaming because I'm not concerned for it, but I will next time I play. Coming from a 2014 mini ITX cube I am astonished by the temperatures at such low noise.

I added a +500 something in EVGA PrecisionXOC, forgot the exact number. I also tried 2152 in Unigen Heaven but it kept going back down to 2139 by the end of the benchmark. I'll try putting the left slider for power/voltage to 100% instead of 90%, maybe It'll make a difference.

Just finished my build with the hybrid. It kicks ***. Running at 2139 right now, hopefully I can squeeze out some more later. At full usage it stays at 45 and below. So glad I got it, wishing you luck!

I also wanted a 1080ti but I decided to get a 1080 because I desperately need a new computer. If the price and specs are nice, I'll pick it up and sell the 1080, but who knows, maybe it'll be worth it to wait for the next generation of cards.

Thanks! Yeah with my knowledge today I would've made some different choices, but for a first build it turned out fine. For that budget today I would get an i5 and a 1060, maybe even better with some deals.
