    Plug it into the PC via USB and works with Fortnite no issues.
     
    Just get a  PC headset and he can carry on as normal.
    Don't need that for Fortnite, windows recognises the DS4 as a controller.

    I cant help with the headphones but I use DS4Widnows http://ds4windows.com/ to enable ps4 controller use on the pc. 
     
    There are presets on there or you can remap buttons as you need to.

    Fortnite uses the Epic Games Launcher, so download that and then you can install Fortnite. When I have used my PS4 controller on my PC it has an audio output (I never used it though so may not be that good) and I dont know if the mic will work. You would be better off buying a PC headset.

    Pretty rough, but did you have a particular reason preference for the Seahawk?
     
    Looks like there's a Zotac waterblocked card for 184,045: Zotac 2080 Ti
    or alternatively an MSI Trio Ccard for 164,444 MSI Trio and the corresponding waterblock for 24,618 Waterblock for MSI Trio

    imma just stop by to say: im sad this much money have been spent on a PSU, and its not a flextronics. so its overkill on the price, but not overkill on the actuall PSU.
     
    otherwise looks like a great overkill build.

    Welcome to the the Why so much Over Kill build Log: My first Hard tube water cooling attempt.
    Well, finally I can say I have everything working, thanks to the many experts here on this forum as this is my first build in 8 years.
    Firstly, my parts list.
     
    AORUS XTREME
    ThreadRipper 3970x
    MSI Sea Hawk RTX 2080 Ti x 2
    G.Skill Royal Trident 256GB
    4 x AORUS 2TB NVMe
    Thermaltake Core P7
    Thermaltake RGB PSU 1250w
    EKWB and Thermaltake water cooling parts
     
    I am still waiting on GPU as the place I bought it from says it will arrive in mid April.
     
    OK, so I am guessing a few of you guys may already know this, but I went through a bit to get to here. Five motherboards, two CPU's, four aluminum Radiators,  one set of 126Gb of RAM, one set of 256Gb RAM and a lot of beer later I am finally able to say I have a stable system. I would hate to include all the wasted parts in this build, but I will leave it as is.
     
    This build for some reason escalated to a full on hard core build as I destroyed MOBO's and ordered while the BEER was flowing.
     
    So, here goes, the timeline of my build.
    MOBO No 1, ROG Strix X570-E Gaming: This MOBO was a causality a un-tightened hard tubing fitting and spurted coolant on the board which caused booting issues.
     

     
    MOBO No 2, ROG Crosshair VIII Formula, MOBO cost escalating.
    This MOBO was an unfortunate issue with over tightening a fitting on the V-RAM water cooler, even though I tightened the fitting with my fingers.
     

     
    MOBO No 3, ROG Zenith II Extreme | Motherboards | ASUS Global. Decided to go all out and go ThreadRipper.
    Problem was that I could only get half the 128Gb G.Skill memory I had bought to work. So I bought another MOBO.
     
    MOBO No 4, ROG Zenith II Extreme | Motherboards | ASUS Global. 
    I decided it must be the RAM so I went ahead and bought 256Gb of G.Skill Royal Trident 256Gb of RAM and I was able to get 192Gb of RAM to show, plus I was getting issues overclocking of the RAM and really bad bench test scores. So I said F**k it and went with the AORUS XTREME MOBO to see if this would change anything.
     
    MOBO No 5, TRX40 AORUS XTREME (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE 
    So, initially it would not post, even after many attempts with many RAM sticks tried. Had some beer as I thought I was screwed again and low and behold it posted. Added the RAM one stick at a time and what do you know, I was able to get all RAM registered. Install Windows and all necessary drivers (Which BTW was much better than the ASUS experience). I was then able to OC the RAM and run some bench marks which well exceed anything I was able to get previously.
     
    Anyway, I did not plan on build log so I only have half finished pics and vids.

    It wouldn't have been enough headers, so I skipped it and bought two of these SATA hubs.
