  1. If you mount the Radiator in the top you will be fine. However if you mount it in the front like I did then you won't be able to mount any drives.
  2. Did you not watch the video. It was done before Ryzen 3000 series was released.
  3. This isn't a consumer or Prosumer computer. It is the first real Pro level computer from Apple in a while.
  4. I am guessing at Processors here. But would bet Xeon W-3223 for the base model. Xeon W-3235 Xeon W-3245 Xeon W-3265 But the top end wont' be the Xeon W-3275 because that only has 38Mb of cache. So it is going to be the big boy they have been talking about. Internally the machine is amazing from what we are seeing. Both this Expanded PCIE GPU tech for high end stuff and traditional PCIE for standard cards. Well laid out and easily expandable. I can't say much for the external looks. But I think they are shifting that prosumer market that might care about such things to the imac pro and dedicating this to the true Professional market. I still think the price is a bit.... Well insane.
  5. Build turned out really good. It performs very well even in AAA games. Temps are a bit higher than I would like but that is the nature of the beast with this case. Idle temps are around 50C and Load temps under Cinebench R20 are 80C. Although obviously it doesn't get this hot in gaming.
  6. Well a few plans changed. I decided on a 2600X instead of the 2700X. This is a secondary computer and I didn't need a 8C/16T processor. Heck even the 2600X is overkill but I didn't want to go any lower. I also managed to snag an EVGA 2080 XC for $615. This was too good of a deal to pass up. It gives me better performance for an even lower price. I also replaced the stock fan with a Noctua and added a second to the bottom. Lots of positive pressure, but hopefully it will help keep it cool. So here is the final build. All and all not bad for the intended purpose. And the build was a welcome relief from moving. Although I will say this case is a bit more challenging than most cases I am used too working in. Forgive the lack of Cable management. I was running out of time.

  7. Hmm. Maybe I should consider the Shift X so I can use my Kraken X52.
  8. So I am planning a living room Gaming PC for my new house.

The real concern though for me is temps with this sized build since there doesn't seem to be a better cooler I can use. Alternatively I was thinking about just picking up an X602 https://www.microcenter.com/product/600164/x602-fluid-gaming-desktop-pc?ob=1 While a bit larger and flashier than I want the temps would undoubtable be lower. Thoughts?
  9. I am good friends with 2 congressmen, and know 3 others along with a couple senators. I have had dinner with the VP and his family while he was governor here in Indiana. Guess how much of an inside track that gives me? The answer would be pretty much zero. Just because you know or are related to people who are in the know, doesn't mean you have that much additional information. Especially when it comes to technical info.
  10. Why would a content creator do this? They need to protect their IP and branding.
  11. It has already been stated multiple times. You just aren't reading it. Epic Launcher has major security and privacy issues. The company seems fine with this and has made no effort to fix it. There is no community system including formus, reviews, etc. There is no refund system like many other launchers have. Putting games on the Epic Launcher is a great way to hide buggy crap from people who want to have a convenient system to see how a game is within the launcher ecosystem. And then when they do buy a PoS game they are stuck with it.
  12. Some people seem to be forgetting that the epic client has some very big security and privacy issues.
