Not with the time I have available it can't. It's a workhorse not a show pony.

Here you go: http://amzn.eu/d/14fSRQu

They are quite stiff as they use plastic sleeving, not paracord. Best I could find, and 30cm ones fit this case well. They come with 24 pin ATX, 4/8Pin MoBo Power, and 2 sets of 6+8pin PCIE for 2x GPUs. And some cable combs.

Nice build.

Just beware the GPU upgrade path! The GTX 970 is brilliant for 1080p gaming - but it means that if you do go to a GTX 1080(ti) but keep a 1080p monitor, you may well not see much tangible benefit for your spend. And then you go out and buy a £400 Monitor to compliment it, and you've spent another grand.... (ask me how I know)....

I have used a Evga 1080ti SC2 with an intel i5-8400 and it didn't bottleneck!! No way will a Ryzen 2700X bottleneck that GPU unles syou're running very low resolution at insane frame rates.

No mid-tier current gen CPU (Ryzen 2600>, Intel i5-8400>) will bottleneck a GTX 1080Ti in normal gaming use. A few VERY CPU heavy titles excepted.

Yeah, that's actually an artifact of the Gpu having been damaged in shipping. It wasn't well packaged and it obviously got dropped, bending the I/O plate. I tried to straighten it as best I could. I may well get a bracket as you suggest, I saw a cheap one on amazon that will do the job.

Just the perils of buying second hand.

You'll be rock solid at 60fps @ 1080p.

no reason to go with a ryzen 1600 now though. Get the 2600 instead, it's all around better and just a few bucks more. Get a B450 Tomahawk too.

I honestly don't see the point of the H200 (much less the H200i) if you want a 'small' build. It's 90% of the size of a good MATX case. The GPU is hard against the PSU shroud and if you use a full ATX PSU it starves it of fresh air.

If you're going mITX, take advantage of the small form factor and get a Inwin A1 or similar truly compact case. If you want airflow, overclocking, expandability, go for a great mATX case like the Fractal Design Meshify C Mini - mATX.

If you're dead set on the H200, save money by getting the H200 (non I) and spend the difference on a SFX (smaller) PSU to allow airflow through the psu shroud vents onto the GPU. See the gamers nexus youtube review of this case to see why.

Component choice seems fine. 1080ti's won't drop in price much more, and the 2080 is a bust for now. No reason to get it until RTX enabled games come on stream, over a year from now.

PC Part picker is constantly mis-reporting amazon UK prices for GPU's and RAM. It shows Amazon Global Store prices excluding VAT and Duties.

I've emailed them about this, it just needs a filter so you can exclude global store offerings.

almost all mITX motherboards have Wifi and nowadays Bluetooth built in. Indeed it's part of the intel Z370 chipset specification, it's baked in. Same with B360/H370.

I have this case:

1) the cooler sits basically next to the Ram, with perhaps a 5mm gap. You can orient it vertically though, as the case is designed to flow air up and through and out the top. Any ITX cooler is the same. they use the ITX 'keep out zone' to maximum effect. You can count the worthwhile air coolers that fit into this case without modification on the fingers of one hand.

2) The GPU is on a riser wide flex cable, which plugs into the MoBo at the top, then doubles back down, across the case, and slots into the connector of the GPU at the bottom of the case on the other side of the 'sandwich'.

I have the i5-8400, and it's god-tier for the money. Mine runs a GTX 1080ti and a 3440x1440 ultrawide, and the CPU is never found wanting. It's a great value option.

Nah, not worth the money. Any decent PSU can supply enough power to run both.

Only bother if you are trying to get your name to the top of benchmarking leaderboards.

Some serious overclockers like to use one PSU for the Motherboard and a second for the GPU, so they have independent power supplies and a heavy load on one doesn't cause voltage droop for the other components.

Since Amazon incorrectly reports global store prices to PC Part picker excluding VAT, (20%), Duties and fees.

I've messaged PCPP about this, Amazon global store prices are NOT representative, the GPU the parametric filter selects is over £200 more landed in the UK.

Because to begin with I had both (happy ebay accident). I was going to test them to see if I could live with the noise of the Asus Turbo or if my (preferred) EVGA ran at acceptable temps.

As it happened the decision was made for me because the Turbo had no output from HDMI so I returned it.

Gta V on this should be rock solid 60fps on ultra settings. It is on my i5-8400 with a gtx 970, which is less powerful than this.

Tbh I'm surprised doom Is only 60fps, it should be 90-100 except in hectic situations. Perhaps he left v sync on and the monitor is 60hz?

The 1060 6Gb should be able to handle VR, as the 1050Ti can. Probably not ideal though.

UK Specific? You have to be really careful with amazon pricing on Video cards at the moment. The parametric pricing gives you the 1080 Ti at £580 which is insanely good. Click on the amazon link however, and this is a price from overseas without duty at 20% or import fees. The card itself is actually £680.

You see this across the board with amazon pricing. The Pc part picker list s pulling prices not available to consumers from Amazons 'global store'.

There's no way you can spec a system around a 8600k and a 1080 Ti for under £1500 in the UK at the moment, and believe me I've tried.

Now do you partition the flow so that both GPU's get cool water, to me it looks like the flow would bypass the first GPU completely and just get pushed around the second. Are there proportioning valves in there?

I think a case would be a good idea just for safeties sake.... can you pull one out of a dumpster?

Great job though.
