    Idle around 30-40 Degrees C is very good, your max temp values are from a gaming session? If so they are reasonable, although I would record a session to get an idea of what your average temps are when gaming, with a 360mm AIO I would hope that you are not getting warmer than around 75 degrees C. An average of 80+ seems high with a 360mm AIO, but not dangerous, but at around 90+ degrees you'll get into thermal throttling territory, and at 100 degrees I believe is when the thermal limit is triggered of Intel CPU's that shuts down the system (this is safety feature to keep it from causing self harm). So you are a ways from that.

    yeah. I was typing my message when he posted so the page didn't refresh until I did.

    it should work as the ports on the Powerlink can be slid as you have seen in the video. and its a Geforce card made by Nvidia just like the RTX GeForce cards are from EVGA so it should work.
     
    this is the link to the Powerlink and you can see just about the pics it has a list that has compatibility on it which shows all the EVGA cards its compatible with. https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=600-PL-2816-LR

    Like he pointed out the 8 pins are upside down (compared to the PowerLink) on the ASUS card, so it's not compatible at all. The PowerLink connectors cannot be flipped unless you wanna toast your GPU.

    Wait... Damn, no it's not going to work. The tabs where the cable latches to the plug need two be on the bottom of the plug, Not the top like in the picture. Thanks for your help!

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm......
     
    The 8 pins are inset a bit and the cooler also sticks out below them, might not work:


    This is the best shot I have of mine on a pair of 780s so far, I could get better ones when I'm home tonight:

     
    But they do stick out a bit on both the left and bottom sides of the 8 pin, they might not clear the PCB on the STRIX. I'll try and get a top down shot tonight to see how far they stick out from the card itself.

    Probably intentional, in my experience.
    Stores usually set prices like this, if they are out of stock, don't want people to buy the product, but also don't want to pull the listing.
     
    If it was a mistake, it would have been something like 2,499 USD. So instead of the normal 249 USD price, they added another 9 by mistake.
    This price is too round, not to be intentional.
    Or there are bots behind this store deciding pricing, but I doubt that.
    Remarks like that don't fly here! Neither do those airplanes though

    well, if you look at it, its just a product listing by a 3rd party.. see the fine print under the out of stock...
     
     
    Sold and Shipped by TELeasy, NOT newegg. Newegg operates like Amazon where 3rd party people can sell there stuff on there site.

    My system - 17400 Watts of power at your fingertips controlled with a 10" touch screen Samsung tablet. System includes Two Crown 2502 XLS and Two Behringer NX6000D amplifiers, Emotiva P-100 preamp, Furman M-8Lx power conditioner. Totaling 16 speakers and 8 subwoofers. Plus one  powered subwoofer @ 600 watts. Sorry, no wimpy home stereo equipment here. Just pure power or as Linus puts it "Mo Power"! ?
     
    Did all the woodwork myself. Currently working on the display unit in the top middle of the cabinet. I created that as well. Has an Acepc (tiny little computer) in it powering the two 7" touch screens. It is actually a wood drawer that pulls out and I used an aluminum kick panel normally use on the bottom of doors as the front panel. Cut to size and cut to fit the two screens. However, my intentions are to put a mini ITX system in the as well. Back is open and will accommodate up to a 360 mm radiator with space left over for cables and wiring. Unit is 14 1/2" wide x 16 1/2" deep x 6" tall inside and there isn't a back panel on the drawer. Will be a tight fit but, it will work. Should be interesting though. If you can dream it you can can build it!

    All good. We debate best boards. Which we actually pretty much agree on.... 
     
    Probably for that particular overclock yes.
    I bet most people believe 1.4 to 1.5v is "safe" for ambient cooling..... (for daily use, ya sure why not)
    well it's really more like you're safe up to about 1.8-1.90v (for overclocking and benching purposes, not daily)
    have had mine only to 1.9v as warned by my team mates not to use 2.0v+ on ambient.

    Since you don't "need" to water cool the VRMs, perhaps look at the Maximus Apex (top board) or Hero. 
    Oh and be sure to get some high speed memory. Watcha looking to get? The 9900K/KS??

    This will be my first build in a long time. Haven't done this since the days of the Pentium 4. Wow, I'm old! Haven't kept up with the tech so much since then. Currently running a 12 year old HP Pavilion - i7-6500U. Baby is starting to show her age when it comes to games. Been good to me though. But the time has come to step it up a bit.

    As long as you have decent case air flow, yes, should be fine.
    You can monitor the VRM temps once you've got the system built and running.
