I hope that this build guide has taken you through all the steps required to make full use of both the Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon/AC and GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio MSI products. They work together extremely well, and their RGB LEDs even sync up with the RGBs of other products from Corsair and G.Skill. I was very surprised to find a Corsair specific RGB header on the motherboard, and it's nice to see MSI work to collaborate with many of the other vendors in the ecosystem.
This system could have been built for a lot less money with the same GPU and motherboard combination. We found you can save money and still game hardcore with an i5-8400 or i5-8600K. Your DRAM also doesn't need to be rated for 3600MHz, like ours, but we highly recommend RGB memory if that is your thing. Your storage configuration might also be different; you could use a smaller 256GB SSD and a 1TB HDD for the same price or cheaper than the 960 Pro we used in this article.
Whether you go higher in price or lower compared to our build, if you need help with the combination of MSI products we used, please just ask!
