  1. So much appreciated! I'll look into these parts and take notes of more dimensions now that I have a good base for this build
  2. Is that new link another case it would fit in by chance?
  3. Sorry for the super late reply, I got tied up for days...EVGA 2080TI black edition.
  4. I already have a 2080 ti. Technically the budget is irrelevant. I just don't want to go overboard.
  5. Budget (including currency): Let's say $2000 Country: USA >>> Japan Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Adobe Suite, CAD, Modern games maxed Other details: Purpose: I'll likely be moving for work this next summer to Japan and I want to build a PC that can be as small as possible that would function with their power standards abroad. The goal would be to fit full sized graphics card (2080TI) inside of the PC and withstand an airplane ride, no glass. I will also want recommendations for potentially an external gpu enclosure that would work to pair with a laptop. I would also like to use AMD processor if possible. Parts to Retain: I'll try and retain my Headphones (Fostex TH900), Asgard 3, Mouse/Keyboard/Tartarus Pro, 2080ti. Random Note: I do have a 2700x in my current build and a 1700x in my wife's build, I don't think these would be worth taking, neither would my monitors, 32" LG32GK850 F&G. I won't need much of a recommendation on monitors, I'm picky so I'll buy one once I'm there. Concerns: I know after consulting someone about moving my Asgard 3 over they mentioned using a stepdown transformer since the outlet standard in Japan is A/B, 2 prong only. It is also 100V vs the USA 120V. I would like to avoid using a stepdown transformer if possible and I feel like my asgard may end up too big to go alongside 2 smaller PC builds. Let me know of any concerns or further questions.
  6. I haven't tried Lewis, but my concern is sending to him would result in a pointless en devour with shipping costs and the parts may be easier to sell?
  7. The model I have is the Rz09-0168 i7 QHD touchscreen version. I'm pretty sure the mobo is toast and it won't boot in general. A light was on but not anymore. What should I do with this? The cost to repair is a bit high out of warrant as well. Anything I can salvage? Any place I should sell it for parts?
  8. Ahh awesome to know, wasn't there some issues with the evos at some point in time where performance degraded? I cannot remember to save my life. Also I did not know that about 1tb having a larger life. That's some great information thanks a ton
  9. Any particular reason for the power supply being 550-watt and the SSD being one terabyte? Also are the speeds really any different on the 850 compared to plea to the 840 Pro?
  10. My goal is to create an effective compact tower that will allow me to utilize my GTX 1080 and Acer XB270HU effectively. I want to try and not spend more that around $1500. I would considering moving from two 27" monitors to an ultrawide 1440p or 4k ips monitor and bump up my budget. My current build consists of these main components outside the monitors: 3770k EVGA GTX 1080 (not TI) z77 asus saberooth samsung sm841n (essentially 840pro) 512gb corsair ddr3 @ 1600 (16gb) corsair h100 (original since around 2012) With this in mind I do want to either get an i7 8700k or something that allows me to utilize multiple cores for the times I need to do some content creation. I will likely need a new cost effective ssd with 512gb or higher. No rgb needed in the build. Suggestions below and thanks to anyone who offers some pointers or great build ideas. The case/ram/ssd are major concerns for the goals of something compact and cool.
