    Getting super prepped to sell off my projects to fund more projects!

    I have a P870DM2 on loan to a friend, but it's running a 7700K with GTX 1080s in SLI on vapor chamber, G-Sync on 1440p120 LCD.
    My primary rig now is a P775DM2 with a 8700T, 2080 and an AliExpress watercooler / air hybrid, 1440p120 LCD, no G-Sync.

    • I have a 9700K in a holding pattern for these, and no problem with the hardware mod needed to install it, the modded BIOS is already done on both. The 8700T was to maximize powersharing with the GPU, but I know it's not favorable for gaming.

    • I was thinking it might be worthwhile to pop the 9700K and 2080 together in the P775, and the 7700K and a single 1080 in the P870 and sell the second 1080 separate, I'm seeing the SLI rigs don't carry enough of a premium, by past Ebay sales.

    • Also of note - My dual-power adaptor is very DIY - I think not selling this modded MSI accessory (and knocking the P870 down to single GTX) would be beneficial, and is what puts that option on the table for me.

    What configuration does anybody who cares to suggest maximize my sales? I'll be putting these on Ebay, but offering a discount to forum folks here when I do sell them (soon). Any replies would be helpful.

    What about putting the second 1080 in the p775 and selling the 2080 separately? There's demand from those wanting to upgrade their Pascal gpu. Would need a new heatsink though.

    @BrightSmith That is a good option, for sure. I do have the original heatsink, but also the aftermarket one supports both 10xx and 20xx cards. Thanks!
