    [Success] GIGABYTE Z370 Gaming 7 + Intel Core i7-8700K + RX 580 + (2x) Dell P2715Q 4k @ 60Hz

    RAM Arrived today, and even with my obscenely large CPU fan in my machine, I was able to install the two additional RAM sticks. All set. This machine just hit one year old and is smooth as silk. :)

    ONE YEAR UPDATE: Hey all, OP here. :) I rarely check into this thread, because my build has worked and worked flawlessly. Guess what? It's been one year since I made this build. Wow, time flies. I'm really shocked at how smooth this build has been running this entire time. Literally no issues...

    Make a cup of coffee while you wait? ;) My boot up time from a cold boot is probably about 4 minutes. But I use the Sleep function and just set the computer to sleep when not in use. You could do the same.

    Hey all, OP here. I moved, and moved my "2018 Mac Pro Replacement" in the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv case into a room where there's carpet on the floor. Since it's not really great to keep a tower with vents on a floor with carpet (blocks airflow) I found a perfect stand that will keep the tower off...

    So glad you liked this build and it helped you...that's the exact reason I did this write up! Cheers.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it... :) If you experience issues, then you have the fixes at your disposal. Honestly, I don't know. Like anything, it could work just fine, or it could have unforeseen issues, (especially with an overlock) and I would just be speculating anyway so I'm not sure.

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Just wanted to circle back on this. The card above arrived on Friday, and I installed it this weekend. Just popped it into the HP 8300 SFF, rebooted, and it auto-rebooted a few times to detect the card. On the third auto reboot, it worked like a charm! I have one 1080p display connected via...

    Thanks, Micalllee. I just pulled the trigger on an EVGA GT 710 2GB DDR3 64bit Single Slot, Low Profile 02G-P3-2713-KR for $45 shipped. Works for me! :)

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Yeah! The HP 8300 I built using your guide works so well, it's been chugging along with no issues! :) That's great info about the Nvidia GT 710. So it's basically just plug and play? I'm seeing the card new on Amazon for $45 so that's a great option. I'm not in a rush, so I'll wait to see if...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Hey @trs96 (or anyone else!) :) For my basic system, I have a fully functional HP 8300 SFF where I'm using the on-board integrated Intel HD graphics to power one 1080p monitor. Works great. I was thinking about having a dual monitor setup for this system, and I don't need 4k at all, just...

    Before doing any costly change, I would simply confirm/research possible tweaks needed to get your Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti and your memory working with your build. But it's a vastly different build. Also, I was very specific with the memory I chose for this build to avoid problems. I looked at the...

    You will need to research on getting the 1080 Ti to work with your system. Your system is unfortunately very different from my build as the two biggest components to a build are the motherboard and video card, with the third being compatible memory. You have two out of the three of the key...

    [Success] GIGABYTE Z370 Gaming 7 + Intel Core i7-8700K + RX 580 + (2x) Dell P2715Q 4k @ 60Hz

    You have different memory and a completely different Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, is this correct? The change from using the built-in support for AMD video cards like my build, vs. using an Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti will require quite a bit of tweaking to get support. My build was made to have as much native...
