Project Battle Angel Alita – Full Build Log, Video & Benchmarks

Single Graphics Card Installed (with GPU support bracket)

We tested our custom GPU support bracket using a single Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 … it worked great. The bracket comes with a 4-pin cable for the RGB … and this plugs directly on to the motherboard’s 4-pin RGB header. Perfect!


With Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Installed (in SLI mode)

For our pair of ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 cards … a 3-slot NVLink bridge was used to connect the two together in SLI mode.


Although the cards may see VERY tight together, the Zotac’s ICE STORM 2.0 cooling solution was sufficient enough to handle the high temperatures.

Spectra RGB lighting can be configured using the Fire Storm software from Zotac.
