It's been great so far. I've actually seen my boot times go down with use, ~5-8 secs from off to desktop. I've thoroughly enjoyed having it.

Holy ****... I don't know why I never thought of that. Great idea, I'm definitely going to look into how tough that would be. Thanks for the suggestion!!

Thank you! Yes I really get 4 second boots! But I wouldn't say 4 second cold boots. If it's been off for a while it takes some time for the power to get through the PSU and actually working, so I'd say 15 seconds is realistic... Although even in that case as soon as information gets displayed on the screen you're less than 4 seconds from running (it really does just look like power moving through the PC and once it gets to the monitor it's on). I do run a script that skips the Win10 login screen entirely, not sure if that helps it move faster but I like it. And if I've been using the computer and shut it off then turn it back on (updates, hit shut down then realize I needed to do one more thing, cat hits the power button, etc) it will turn on again in 4 seconds no question. I'll never forget tanking a mythic dungeon boss in WoW with friends, having the cat hit the power button, and being able to reboot and relog into WoW before anyone died... Congrats on the drive, I hope you're loving it!

Oh really? That's a neat upgrade I missed in Win10.

Not to mention >16gb of RAM can't be utilized by Windows Home... needs to be Pro to exceed 16gb.

+1 for the sweet spoiler. Any plans to add a racing stripe?

You can mount AIO coolers either way. Front mounted like he's got it means it's drawing cool air from outside the case and passing that over the radiator. Technically he'll see better CPU cooling performance because the air is outside cool air... but the trade-off is the interior of the case will have slightly higher air temperatures since it's the radiator's "exhaust" now inside the case. This is a negligible temperature increase unless you have a blower style GPU that relies on exhausting air to cool the GPU chip, which he does not have. Open model GPUs are already designed to operate in heated environments and thus are just as efficient cooling with a front mounted AIO radiator... maybe 1 degree higher on average. As long as there's still exhaust, it's a fantastic solution to cooling. Looks great too!

Haha probably like a 12. I don't think I own a game that could realistically push it near any sort of limit. I'm excited for more games to come out that support Ray Tracing. That and the learning I think will make a big difference in the future.

I can't say for certain as I don't know the specs of the Trio. I wanted it, but I believe they stopped making it for whatever reason. The only ones still on sale are "secondhand" from people who snapped up the original offerings and are selling them with a ridiculous markup. I assume since some of the first batch of 2080ti cards that released had issues - and MSI stopped selling the Trios that those two issues were possibly related. I haven't seen any Trio models come back on the market, while I have seen Dukes get resupplied a couple times now. For what it's worth the Duke models also have a factory overclocked version, which is what I was lucky enough to get.

Thank you for your feedback! Building computers is so much fun. I don't know why I waited so long to build this one. It's fun to help friends pick out parts and build their first computers, but there's definitely something that's just so satisfying about building a new one for yourself, too.

Thanks so much! I kept seeing extensions used with comes in builds on here and I couldn't say no for like $15 extra... it's a nice bit of polish for sure!
