  2. Is AMD potentially risky? (Threadripper)

    Not sure if it's a good idea to mount the fan like he did in the video. In a single fan ventirad model i'm pretty sure it's better to use it to extract the air outside. (need to double check) I don't think you need to cool your RAM if you have a good case with fan on the top. I'm running non overclocked for now. In a full long heavy charge with multithreaded CPU and CG, the temp prob i put near the memory never go higher than 45°. So i don't think it's a problem.

    Yeah same deal. Any configuration i did in the last 10 years i'm using Noctua. I'm kinda sensitive to noise and they are the perfect Noise/cooling perf ratio. With the new x399 one you can offset a little bit the ventirad from the cooling plate, my previous one didn't have this option. With Gigabyte Mb i can use all ports but the space between the CG and the ventirad is something like 1 mm and i'm using the maximum offset position. With the standard ventirad/plate position it was impossible to use the card in the first port, in fact the port was fully covered by ventirad.

    Are you sure you want to go to watercooling ? Noctua have excellent ventirad who's get similar or better cooling performance than some watercooling system with a minimal noise. The only down side is the ventirad size. On some motherboard you can loose one pci port because is so huge. Last 3 years i've saw differents configuration trashed by watercooling leak in different studios. I will avoid this if it's not really needed.

    Thank you

    Just saw your new thread after my reply on the old one ;-) As i say goodjob if you could check the link too. Thanks for sharing this.

    Good Job.the new version looks really cool...but the orbolt link looks dead. Could you fix it ? I'm curious to see how you did it without solver.

    Took the Gigabyte one and as you said it's not perfect. Running great but problems with small details. No problem with the card running great in vanilla. But all the tweak softwares suite is buggy as hell and no sign from support. It's ok from now until a larger problem append in a future...I will avoid this MB. You can use it as Christmas tree too

    Happy birthday.Take care and please make regular backup.
  11. Memory speed, DDR4 2666 vs DDR4 3466

    Gain is here but minimal. Unlimited budget ? Go for it.

    From what i had read, you have a better cooling with the new noctua NH-U14s TR4 than watercooling (i don't remenber the brand). I know it sound weird...but i saw different temp benchmark who confirm this. The only down side is the Noctua coolers are beast...you can loose one PCIe port because of the size according to the motherboard you use. Second thing i can't remove from my head is : a compagny where i'm working sometime trash 4 Titan with a leaking watercooling system after 6 months.... Was using Noctua cooling system in a previous setup and i'm really happy with and silent is a important thing to me. You should maybe take a look on it.

    Thing to consider. Here in Europe, 1950x just get 20% price drop. It's 799,90€ instead of 999€. Dont know if it's a discount for the Black Friday stuff only or something who's gonna stay. I'm looking threads and benchmark about TR and I9 since 1 month. Still can't say the one is the best as results are differents from the task. With this price drop TR looks like the perfect deal for freelancer. Always in the blue team since almost 20 years..I'm think i'm gonna switch now for the next 5 years. If you see anything who's bugging you in this setup please tell me...i'm gonna push this order button soon. :-) Rest in peace my good old overcloked i2600k.

    Hi DeeLan. Just want to know if you have already made a choice and got your new build. Looking for the same price range system.
