when boxes were at a simpler time

Indeed. EVGA has kept their boxes very, very similar though. Changed a bit with Turing, but my Pascal boxes from them just have an updated font and the colors were made a little brighter, other than that it's very similar. I still have the boxes for a 1050, 1050 Ti, and 1060 at home, should snatch some pics tonight. 

Sadly I don't have the boxes for any of my X58 stuff, even for my SR-2s I only have the basic RMA box for one of those. My brand new X58 Classified SLI 4-Way didn't have a box either ?. I don't understand why people pay hundreds for HEDT hardware and then do not keep at least the main component boxes, aka mobo/CPU/GPU. ?

1000W G3 and a 1600W T2. I used to have the 550W and 650W G3s but those went into rigs I gave away, still have the box for the... 650 IIRC.

Looks like the microcode all core turbo BIOS mod? That's been around.... as long as X99 Xeons have existed?

Still reeeeeeeally can't advise chinesium boards. Any actual word on reliability/longevity of these boards? Also AFAIK none of them will handle a big chip with a proper OC very well, meaning you lock yourself out of any better CPU options in future, other than Xeons stuck at lower clocks.

In my experience, X99 chips don't really come into their own until they're above 4Ghz, at least for gaming.

That F@H? I folded a bit yesterday, other than that I haven't folded at all lately ?. Too many driver issues and for some reason Core22 WUs cause the card to underclock to 1600MHz even if I have it OCed to 1850Mhz. Drops PPD to 900K vs the 1.9-2M PPD I get with Core21 WUs. ?

Also @Crunchy Dragon hahahahahaha yaaaay USPS is closed today so reeeee must ship out the 920 tomorrow ?

Also also X58 Micro is going (also tomorrow) to @The Blackhat so he can come be an HEDT nerd with us now ?

What were you running before? I know you've gone through a lotta hardware, wasn't 100% sure if any of that was HEDT or not.

SR2 part acquisition shenanigans are starting. Got a demo model 900D for a song, also bought an ssd and AX1600i PSU. Mobo arrives tomorrow so am going to hopefully have test fit stuff and booted mid week.

Also this case is freaking huge and fills up my large car's trunk.

AX1600i PSU

Oho the chungus! Tbh it's the only real choice for this board. Doubt a Classified 1500W can be easily found and those are likely quite out of date since they released in 2012 (specs here btw: https://www.evga.com/products/specs/psu.aspx?pn=fddcbf04-5c70-4324-930f-e9295a96cef5), and the modern 1600W T2 costs more than an AXi unless you get it on sale. Which I did, but that T2 needs to live in my soon to be X79 rig, because it's the only PSU I currently have with the 12v rail amperage rating EVGA specs for 2 780 Classifieds, and I do plan to push those a good bit. 

And best of luck on the board, hopefully it'll behave perfectly. Mine has been a bastard, need to pull it out sometime and see if it'll behave again, but I'm up to my ears in all the other rigs I need to build rn. And by my calculations based off what I paid (going off memory for some and as many old invoices/receipts as I can find, my purchases span from 2018 up to this year), about $5,120 into them at this point, and I still need some parts for the X58 rig I have planned. Once completed, I'll have an X58, X79, and two X99 rigs operational, then I'll be free to eyeball X299 and 5520 (aka doing something with the SR-2). Sweating wallet noises. ?

@Zando Bob haha yea....I'm using my invoice totaling ignoring powers from years of motorsports to my benefit on this build. I figure I've wanted to do this for sooooooo long that screw it. Way cheaper than car stuff.

 

I'm happy to help offset costs by buying WC shiny.....just sayin'

 

On PSU, the store had the Corsair and EVGA, the 1600 T2 being about $50 cheaper.....but out of stock, and it's 20mm longer. I'm a bit worried that I'll run out of enough cables anyway when I try 4x GPU. Might need to grab another PSU for that, but hoping not. Might just get 4x low power ones.

On the bright side, the 900D will house two PSUs if you need it do.

Yep, big reason I bought it over the Anidees. Downside is can't fit as big of rads if I use dual PSU. Can't win everything!

Ah nice, most of the time I see them for $20 or so new, and they are a worse PSU so it's not the best deal. I was lucky to snag mine coming off the mining craze so I assume they had massive overstock, got it brand new direct from EVGA with the full 10 year warranty (12 year if registered in time but I don't remember if I did or not) for $179.99. 

And hmmm but 1000W of GPU in the form of 4x 980 Tis is certainly a nice prospect ?

Also needs to be dusted off, it's been sitting in a box for a good while now. Other VRM block is somewhere in said box as well ?. Whether I'd sell or not is mostly down to whether I decide to stick with air or not. To be fair, Xeons can be pushed as hard as possible for daily running on air, water just helps if you wanna dump voltage in and not think about it. Tis thinking time, because I tend to get attached to my hardware, but also hate having it sit around if I know someone else will actually use it. 

Also have pics of the SR-2 last I had it out, just because:

You could always do a mod of sorts like Linus did.

I mean I can pull over a 3rd of that with a single GPU rn... 

And my 780s should do 225W each stock, more at 1.2-1.25v, and you can do softmods to force feed these suckers 1.35v with no vdroop so.... power consumption will be yes.

@Crunchy Dragon It took me some time to find the time to write the VFIO Guide but now that it's done I've setup the Virtualization Discussion thread.

 

I hope it lives for at least a little while. I have the distinct impression @TopHatProductions115 might be all over it. :3

Man, I wish it had been that cheap. I am hoping this'll be enough PSU. I saw a few used units (both Corsair/EVGA) online but I figured I'd rather spend a bit more and never have to think about it again.

 

my 2x R9 290 is what, 80% of that? hahahaha cries.

mmm so pretty! Let me know if you do come to a decision. I'm definitely interested!! I know I can probably get 98% of the OC just using an AIO, but something about WC it just sounds awesome.

Wow....LMG has come a long way. Good video though, sure does show some of what I can do with this thing. Dual 480 + 240 + 120 is pretty much what I was looking at doing, so it's good to see it having been done!
