So.... My fraud build from 2014 (my golden year here on 7s) has officially been retired. Because I didn't have a surge protector for the past seven years, my MOBO fried twice, the second time happened in January 2020. Unfortunately, LGA 1150 has been discontinued and the only options I had were chinese DHGate no-name MOBOs or a sealed LGA 1150 board for $500+. I tried a used board that was advertised as working but it arrived with broken pins, I fixed the pins but I was still getting a boot loop.

Now, believe it or not, I was running most games (nothing current such as MW, RDR2, BFV, etc.) on the highest settings with no issues for a long time. I didn't expect my 980 to last so long and perform so well. But, I felt like seven years was way too long and I said f*** it, it's time to upgrade.

Now, the build is in progress as I'm waiting on some parts to get shipped but I will be updating the thread with progress photos. Ultimately I would like to put a custom-loop/open-loop water cooling solution in the build but I'm waiting to see how the new 3080s can be watercooled.
