    mATX Thread Ripper Build!

    If it can fit I recommend the Noctua NH9U14S TR4 if you go air

    mATX Thread Ripper Build!

    Like some others have said 120MM AIO isn't going to cut it, I am not saying you have to get a full coverage AIO but at least put an 240mm-280mm on there. Secondly Threadripper 2 while improved still loves quad channel RAM, get yourself two for sticks

    Starting new TR build!

    Yes the 1950X is simply a better value however the performance difference is really more like 10% plus you get better temps, better ram stability, XFR2 and PBO2 (PBO overclocking mode), better overclocking chip Cooler good, avoid Enermax TR4 products or just go with a Asetek AIO w/ bracket the temp difference is that bad, BUT now looking at that case dude you have to get something better in there or a loop! lol $150 for a 1600 watt PSU is a good deal but huge overkill unless you want to do SLI down the line Overall a nice setup, best of luck

    Keeping mATX alive :)

    There is a huge difference between a mATX case compared to mITX in terms of size. Really the smallest mATX case is a 15L-18.5L while a good mITX case that can still support a full sized GPU can be 7L-13L. Sure mATX offers more options in terms of features and even performance but for most people mITX is more than enough
  5. god this must have took forever, but very cool!

    RTX 2080 or GTX 1080ti ?

    if price is not an issue I would then ask yourself what card is the cooler card temp wise, what performs better, what looks better for your build

    t480 (non-S) VS X1 Carbon

    Funny my brother just had this same dilemma but he was more looking at the T480S vs X1. Either way I would ask yourself what are your expectations? Do you really think you will keep this beyond 3 years, thus will actually crack it open to upgrade the RAM and HD. Will you really carry around a spare battery for the T480? Do you even need the extra battery life? Honestly having owned a X1 I would without a doubt go for that as long as you want a thinner and lighter device. I believe the sale is over but it probably will run again but at Costco X1 i7, 16GB, 512HD, 1080P screen was going for $1350.
  9. Yeah instead of manually dialing it back I just changed it to PBO, with PPT 220, TDC 220, EDC 280 and everything is great. Did not fail Prime95 and CPU-Z stress test had it at 70 degrees. Also got my Corsair Vengance LPX C15 3000 to get to 3200MHz, was originally only at like 2100 out of the box
  10. 8700K better for gaming for sure, 2700X will have better multi-core performance and gaming is good just not great. In the end it comes down to will you want to upgrade down the line? Even with the rumor* of Intel extending 14nm to Comet Lake S, which BTW I think is fake news, the chip set has been milked out of all its potential. Next gen Ryzen looks to surpass Intel on ever front while still supporting current gen motherboards. So long game yeah I would get a 2700X with the hopes of getting the rumored 3800X in 2019, but if you are the type that upgrades every 5 years or whatever than yeah the 8700K is currently a great gaming CPU
  11. yeah the way my case and PSU is setup it can only do AIO and that only leaves really the Enermax TR4 240 which would be fine but it also is notorious for pump failures and even leaking. There is a Coolmaster version but I can't seem to find it anywhere it is pretty expensive. I think for now I am going to just dial back the overclock until a new TR4 AIO is developed
  12. Yeah used it in a pinch, but gaming it's in the high 50s
  13. Jrasero

    RTX 2080 Ti or SLI/NVLINK Dual RTX 2080?

    yeah just kept my RTX 2080 Ti and upgrades to TR2 w/ a 2950X
  14. I have a TR2 2950X on a X399M board w/ a NZXT Kraken X52 AIO. At the moment I have the power at 1.35 and all cores at 3.9ghz A couple minutes of Prime95 has the chip overheating but for daily tasks and gaming it's fine Should I just dial back the voltage first and then clocks? Any suggestions would be awesome
