          using GTX 750 ti for like 6 years even more watching him unwrapping a brand new 2080ti just for that build kind hurt me badly :(

            This is for when you need a portable solution, but laptops are not powerful enough for you. Like a build or render server that you could put in your suitcase and travel with. I was in the market for a similar solution around 2014, ended up with a micro-ATX system and a carry handle screwed to the case.

              That whole build is stupid. I'll do you a favor and take it off of your hands.

                  What do you do after your done building and using them do you give them off through them out or store them and just use them for backups?

                            The CPU may need to be clamped down a bit more in center two positions.

                                  The possibility of a motherboard causing the fan speed on the GPU to spin at 100% is approximately 0. That's internally controlled by firmware on the GPU according to temp sensor readings.

                                      This, in a fractal node 202 case, with watercooling and a graphics card. That would be my ideal portable setup.

                                                      now you have to build it in the smallest case humanly possible to jank a video card into as well as ok cooling of any kind
