  1. I have that G3 PSU as well, spot on choice to not use any of the included cables they are way too chunky

    [Build log] Dead by Daylight - AeroCool, ASRock, TeamGroup

    This is one of the most original build I have ever seen

    Ripping Ray Tracing Sliger Cerberus build

    Yeah I agree lol. They probably have some need for those HDD but I personally have all my storage on the MOBO. Sometimes I glance down and see that empty spot where another card could go, but I have to remind myself not go insane with the build financially lol. I didn't straight buy these parts right away, it took almost two years of constantly selling parts and upgrading them with nominal amounts of money, oh and some great sales

    Ripping Ray Tracing Sliger Cerberus build

    Yeah I believe you can. I think if you go front mounted SFX the back has holes for tubes and mounting points, but I have seen custom loops with rear SFX PSU: Cerberus Custom With an ATX PSU I am not 100% sure if it would work Additionally: And yeah to me it's the best mATX case out there bar none, granted it is expensive but it was on sale and graciously my wife gave it to me for my birthday. I really love Sliger for their customer service, the weight and the feel of the powder coated steel is awesome, the panel clips while hard to undo are really secure compared to a NCAse which were almost too easy to take off. The powder coating is really durable compared to other steel and aluminium cases. The ATX PSU compatibility is a big deal IMO. I probably won't and defiantly shouldn't but it is the only SFF case that can do NVLINK as far to my knowledge
  5. I have Optimumtech on Youtube to blame for this. Moved from my NCase M1 to a Sliger Cerberus after Optimumtech did a review on the Cerberus and had a 15% off promo code. The idea of having a 18L SFF case that had very little compromises was just too tempting. I debated for sometime whether to stay Z370 or go X299M or X399M and in the end I decided if I wanted to utilize the case properly I had to go X399M with a Threadripper 2 2950X. Going Threadripper provides me enough power to game and stream with ease (overkill), quad channel memory, 3 M.2 slots that allowed me to not use any 2.5" drives, the opportunity to SLI/NVLINK/Crossfire. Going with a bigger case allowed me to smash an 1000 watt ATX PSU which allows me plenty of headroom for really anything. Finished Project Build Log Asrock X399M Motherboard Ryzen Threadripper 2 2950X NZXT Kraken X52 AIO w/ 2X Noctua NF-F12 Fans 2X Noctua NF-A12X15 Fans 4X Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000 RAM 2X Intel 660P 512GB M.2 NVME 240GB M.2 Sata EVGA G3 1000 watt ATX PSU EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC Phanteks LED RGB kit (which I probably will remove) Overall I am really satisfied with the build and Sliger is one heck of a company. From NV my order took 5 business days and they do have phone support (unlike SFFLab) and answer email inquiries within 24 hours. I had multiple questions on my build and the owner emailed me back promptly. I did a mini review on Reddit and wrote that some of the panels just weren't up to spec for me and Sliger reached out to me and sent me free replacement white panels, which I should be getting tomorrow. Overall this is a really on going 2 year project which started with a prebuilt that I started parting out and slowly upgraded parts overtime into this beast.

    2080 ti failing issues

    I mean if you can score a card at Best Buy or Micro Center which tend to have very good return policies then sure, I just would never buy from Nvidia directly due to their piss poor CS. I don't want to come off as racist especially since my wife is Filipino but their customer service that is based in the Philippines is absolutely horrid. Those people know NOTHING about the cards and it is like talking to a brick wall. When I call EVGA it's 24/7 customer service and you get someone who probably owns the product and sympathizes with you. I had a technical question one time for my prior GTX Gigabyte G1 1070 so I called technical support and good lord was it like pulling teeth.

    2080 ti failing issues

    IMO RTX 2080 Ti failures are overstated and seem to be mostly Nvidia FE cards, yeah some MSI cards have been mentioned but I would say 9/10 cards I read about are defective Nvidia ones. With this said, Newegg for most cards has a replacement return policy only but the problem is that these cards have rarely been in stock and I am not sure Newegg carries replacement stock. Honestly no matter where you buy your card from I would simply get a EVGA RTX 2080 Ti card. In my experience they have the best customer service and they tend to have replacement stock readily on hand. There ARMA process is pretty great however it does require you to pay for shipping, but it does allow you keep your current card until your replacement comes. With ARMA EVGA provides you a label to send back the defective card. I just did a ARMA for my RTX 2080 Ti that had clicking fans upon startup and paid $40 for 2nd day shipping and got my replacement card asap, but the replacement however had horrendous coil whine, didn't overclock nearly as well, ran hotter, and still had the clicking noise lol.

    $1000 for new i9 7940X good?

    Well I am going X399M, got a decent deal on the one and only Asrock X399M for $260 shipped and even came with a 128GB SSD lol supposedly the boards ships with the latest BIOS so if I wanted to go TB2 it shouldn't be an issue AMD provides a Astek mount for all TB/TB2 products I guess my options are $900 2950X, $700 1950X, wait until Oct 29 and get $650 2920X or just go $450 2920X

    $1000 for new i9 7940X good?

    if this is the case should I just buy a 1920X and then upgrade to next gen if you think it's coming out 2019?

    $1000 for new i9 7940X good?

    Or do you think it is wise to wait until basin lake is launched for X299 sales? or does that no matter since CPUs don't really loose that much value?
  15. Jrasero

    $1000 for new i9 7940X good?

    Yeah basically 7940X $1000 + $200 MOBO 1950X $700 + $330 MOBO + $100+(?) new AIO since my EVGA CLC 240 wont work with that? 1950X mATX setup $1130 7940X mATX setup $1200
