I couldn't find any of those in stock either. I ended up finding a random seller on Amazon and paid an extra $40. Hopefully they ship it quickly.. I've had bad experiences with random Amazon sellers.

So the computer is built for the most part. I'm running into an issue with the 4th gpu. The USB 2.0 header is at the bottom of the board as well as audio, well they are preventing me from plugging in the 4th gpu. 

I mean I could just do with out audio and USB 2.0, but I'd rather not. What do you think about using a riser? Is that an option?

Thanks again for your assistance!

Oh btw, I managed to pick up a new/open box 1080ti on ebay for $750.

I just realized that not only is it the USB 2.0 and audio in the way but the system panel header as well. Ugh

So for now I'm running 1 1080ti and 2 1080's. Do I need to enable PCIe above 4g encoding?

That's for mapping memory above 4GB. Just try it out and if it runs faster -> keep it.

I have the system up and running and have installed hashcat. Are these benchmarks about what I should be expecting with 1 1080ti and 2 1080's?

./hashcat64.bin -m 0 -b
