    What CPU are you running?
    I'm running a 7900X and the corsair couldn't handle it past stock. CPU is delidded. Even at stock it was a struggle.

    I am running it in a Cosmos 2 modded case with the glass window but I use an external radiator so that allowed me to design the airflow in the case the way I want it and it's great and silent. No high temps in any component (PCH, Memory, NVMEs) - CPU/GPU with custom waterblocks.

    Check the motherboard stand offs and whether something touches where it should not. Disconnect everything not needed (including USB ports) and check everything again.
    There is really nothing we can do from images and you if you have a grounding issues you need to go through a troubleshooting process step by step.

    Speaking of the Corsair Obsidian 900D, it doesn't seem to be available anywhere right now. Do you think it is out of production awaiting the next model or will there be another production run? Beautiful case and lighting you have there.

    They are available, just need to know where to look as its been one upped by the 1000D which also looks like a nice case at $500. Then theres the Phanteks Enthoo Elite if you have -$900-$1000 to spend (im still on the fence on one of these, ever see one go on sale I'll jump on it). Im also considering a 1000D. Not that I dont love my 900D but I get antsy after a couple of years on the same case. Ill stick with the rest for now as its not been one upped yet which is good as the few 2080TIs that pop up are selling for more than what I paid for BOTH of my 1080Ti cards and from what Ive seen the only thing they are good for is they are more efficient with power. I might try a skylake refresh if they show any promise. I cant complain as I think Im one of only a handful of people to get a 7900X to hit 5Ghz and yes 5GHz on ALL CORES!! IMO it doesnt count if you only OC the sweet spot and leave the rest behind. I definitely hit the silicon lottery on my delidded chip. Curious to see how the new chips will fare now that they went back to bonding the IHS making deliidding a thing of the past.

    I didn't realize that de-lidding was only possible because Intel was using thermal compound in the CPU rather than solder or other permanent bonding. Maybe you won't need de-lidding for optimum heat dissipation moving forward.

    From what I know of the 2080 series, they include a new type of cores for hybrid ray tracing, but are otherwise like you said, not much different. Also I am guessing that the 2080 series are no better at floating point operations and workstation graphics than previous gaming cards. The ray tracing cores are specific to that task? (Quaddro and Firepro are too expensive.)


    I will keep looking for a new 900D, but Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy and Frys are out of stock except for some price gauging from third party.
