    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
  3. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. My wife just bought me a mATX Cerberus for my birthday, what a great wife!. I currently have a NCase M1 Z370N i7 8700 16GB RTX 2080 Ti and I debating how to optimize my new case. Go X299 and try to get try to get a used 7900X for cheap and pair with my current RTX 2080 Ti or buy a Z370 mobo and sell my RTX 2080 Ti for cost and get two RTX 2080 and do NVLINK? I feel like with the Cerberus I got to go big, so either dual GPU or X299 or f there were more options X399 My only hesitancy is I love the RTX 2080 Ti, how much better will dual 2080's be if at all? I play a lot of sports games FIFA, NBA 2K, Madden, but play PUBG, Tomb Raider GTA V, and stream.
  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. Jrasero

    2080 Ti Issue Status?

    Yeah so what I said is correct. If people's defective cards are using Micron VRAM, NVIDIA still could be sending out Samsung replacements
  15. Jrasero

    2080 Ti Issue Status?

    While the media and people's anecdotal horror stories about the RTX 2080 Ti failing paint a terrible picture for the card, in all reality the card has a pretty standard failure rate. Scouring the internet it mostly seems Nvidia branded RTX 2080 Ti cards have been effected. Some have hypothesized this is due to a bad batch of Micron ram and replacements are being sent back with Samsung versions? TLDR still a overblown story just magnified by the $1000+ cost of each card and with ray tracing being a dud so far.
  16. AMD has been very good about keeping their promise about mobos and next gen chips. I do think TR3 could be more efficient as well so I don't think there will be issues with overclocking. A few high end X399 boards recommend additional cooling with existing X399 when overclocking but aren't required, so yeah chances are very good AMD just requires a BIOS update and it's plug and play
  17. Well no one answered your question but from what I have read 3rd gen Threadripper should launch sometime late 2019. So yeah more than 6 months but within reason in terms of waiting. Honestly if you are sold on TR now I would dive in but go 1950X and get one on sale for $550 or try to get one used in the $400 or bellow, so when TR3 comes out you can sell the chip for a few hundred dollars to offset the probably $900 3950X What I think the biggest improvement in TB3 will be is clock speeds, so for someone who wants to game and render TB3 could be the Holy Grail of HEDT. Maybe 4.7GHZ???

    i9 9900K Buying Question...

    yeah great pick up on the PSU since I got my EVGA G3 1000 watt for $99, so a Titanium for $20 is a no brainer. As for the CPU honestly a 8700K, 8086K are perfectly fine, yeah a 9900K is better but also costs a lot more and are hard to find. My biggest issue going Intel at the moment is next gen support since this chip set has been milked to death and honestly next gen Ryzen looks to whip Intel and still support current mobos. Best bet is going 1st gen TR 1920X or 1950X or going 2920X or going 2700X since these are fine for what you will be doing plus they will support next gen
  19. I have that G3 PSU as well, spot on choice to not use any of the included cables they are way too chunky

    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
  22. 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.

    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

    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.
