  1. So for someone who is already invested in X299, how smart would it be to switch everything over to TRX40?


    X299 upgrade path allows up to the 10980XE but I haven't found one in stock yet. As for longevity, X299 might be at the end of the road. EOL soon? One more refresh? Who knows. I haven't found much information on whats next for X299.


    Switching over to TRX40 would require a new motherboard and I would only be purchasing the 3960X. I don't see it going EOL anytime soon and you get PCIE 4.0 and Gen 4 NVME. Nothing to scream about but nice to have.


    Honest thoughts and opinions welcome!

      I'd just wait then. The 3960X is 6 months old already and the 10980XE is nowhere in sight. The few times I've seen them pop up, they're going for old, insane Intel HEDT money. I don't think you're going to see mass improvements in your workflow and the sheer cost of a platform move is so high. I'd wait for the next generation of either.


      Not that I did that. I have an 3970X and a 7980XE. It's a beast of a CPU, but so it the 7980XE. And the latter is more fun lol.


      PCIe Gen 4 isn't worth the hype right now either.

      My local micro center has the 10900X and 10920X. Last time I asked about the 10980XE they couldn't give me a direct answer to when it would be carried. At B&H most X299 cpus are back ordered and have been for awhile now.


      You're right though and I agree with you. I just wanted someone else's opinion on it. Now speaking of that 7980XE, did you delid yours?

  2. Just curios if anyone has tried to replace the current thermal pad on the 5700XT with the Innovation Cooling Graphite Thermal Pad?


  3. Well hello LTT Forum! It's been awhile!






  4. Not sure what to do.


    I spent the past 2 months messing around with different build configurations but got nowhere with it.   


    A. Re-build my X99 Rig with a 6950X (I already have multiple X99 motherboards sitting around/Cheapest 6950X is $779) 


    B. Build a 2700X build with a 1080Ti 

    C. Build a Z370  build with a 1080Ti


    D. Possibly build a high end X299 build




    Z. Wait for the new 9th gen stuff and see how that plays out. 


    I'm not just gaming but also streaming, editing, using a daw, etc..

      Personally, I'd wait on option Z.

      One half of me wants to wait but the other doesn't lol 


      This is a hard decision to make.  

  5. Did AMD ever give out the release date for the Threadripper 2920X? 


    One article mentioned October but I would like to double check. 

  6. Its interesting that this could even happen lol So far I have had zero issues. Everything runs fine with XMP on or off.
  7. With no xmp enabled, it boots up without any issues. Speed shows 2133
  8. It only showed one XMP profile in the bios. 3200, 16-18-18-38 1.35V
  9. So in other words its normal and the memory isn't defective? I was just confused when I saw that.
  10. Not sure why this shows different speeds? Both kits are the exact same. Any ideas?
  11. Difference between the 1070 Ti and a 1080 is $60. 


    What do you guys think?


    Is the the 1080 really worth the extra $60?


    This is for an upcoming build.

      I would say yes, always get the better GPU if you can afford it. 


      It won't be day and night difference, but it's there. Especially if you have an FPS counter up when you play.

    2. Dive5885


      I mean I would get Vega 64, the Asus Strix version but its $799.. 


      Sure its a non-reference card but damn its way to expensive even if it is 

  12. I was thinking of rebuilding my X99 rig with a 5960X and comparing it to my 2700X.. 


    Kinda wondering how the processors would compare against each other

      cpubenchmark.com is a good place

      Totally forgot about that website! 

  13. 4.3Ghz, 1.475v, Memory 3333Mhz 


    Also, VRM temps for the M7 stayed around 50c-55c, thanks to the Cryorig A80 Hybrid AIO!

      4.4Ghz at 1.5v is a no go. That's pretty much as far as I am going go. At the end of the day, I'm pretty impressed with the 2700X. 


      I do have to wonder if having a X470 motherboard would change anything?

      Seems to overclock better then the the previous generation.

    3. Dive5885


      It does but at the same time I wouldn't run 4.3Ghz with 1.475v on the daily. That's a bit to high for me personally 

  14. 4.2Ghz, 1.45v, Memory 3333Mhz
