    Assuming this ships, I just got a 3970X + Zenith II for cheaper than buying them alone lol.

    All that local storage, the joys of SLI micro stutter, the Enermax cooler gunking up and idling at 70, first Gen threadripper wonkiness, the joy of ridiculous Cinebench R15 scores that are just commonplace now, not yet knowing that @CableMod was, that time I though 3 ultrawide monitors was a good idea lol...

    I love one thing about RGB... you can turn it all off. I especially love that this is doubly true with the C7H. You can disable every single LED on the board. You can barely tell the thing is on aside from the fan spin.

    This chonky rad trapped soooooooo much air. I read that this would be the case, but seeing it in action is so funny. It's probably dropped a full tube in coolant levels since the initial fill with more to go. This was topped off before I went to bed last night.

    Glad I was able to keeping as visually similar as possible.
     


     
    Changes:
    Replaced the 3900X with a 3950X. Replaced the EKWB PE CoolStream 360 radiator with an XEm going from 38mm wide to 60mm wide. Did I need the extra capacity? I have no idea. Replaced the 32GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro with 64GB 3600 CL16 Trident-Z Neo. Installed an Asus XG-C100C PCIe x4 10 Gbit/s Network Adapter... probably should have done this the first go around, but I forgot. Installed an EK-Meltemi 120ER because... it seemed more interesting than leaving an empty space in the basement.  Replaced the top bend for absolutely no reason. Installed a shorter reservoir tube since the thicker radiator necessitated moving the D5 up 1 fan position. Replaced the 2nd bend with a 45 degree swivel fitting because the res ports sit at a more complicated angle now. The 45 degree fitting was flexible enough to address this new angle easily where a bend would have been too wide. Probably some other minor things that escape my memory.
     
    Here's a Cinebench R20 run.

    linus, read please... it's fine now. the GX/PX/GM/SGX fixed the ripple issues by moving some caps from the cable to internals. the GX and SGX have shown this in reviews already, even if i find protections set rather high, it's all good so far.
     
    Anthony, i don't know where you got the love for the PTM for, but at those wattages, i'm totally fine with that you do

    Shorter tube now since the XE radiator is twice the thickness and eliminates the lower mounting clearance. Liking this look a lot more than I thought I would. The res/pump is a lot more noticeable instead of just fading into the background. I'd still rather not light it, so this was a good way to showcase it a bit more.
