Decent fans. I would probably invest in some pressure static fans.
No. Its been running well but ended up swapping back to the Noctua. Smaller form factor and all. The Dark Rock TR4 was huge lol
For me the decision was simple. I wanted a cpu that could handle lot's of multitasking and rendering on demand. Keep in mind I had a 8700k with the same 1080 TI in it. It was a good rig but I payed a lot more for that cpu vs my ryzen tr. What I mean by that is that the 8700 k had only 6 cores and 12 threads. While the clock speeds could go a little higher in comparison to the 1950x I felt that I could do better with how much money I was putting down on the table with going with amd. TR-16c/32t vs Intel-6c/12t. Mind you I could have also waited for the 9900k to come out but seeing as how much the release price was going to be for the 9900k it was a no brainer to go with the 1950x. Simply put TR is future proof and for the price you can't go wrong. Thank you!
I actually got some combs for them and now that you mention it they did slide all over the place. Had to order separate ones from amazon. I wish I could have reviewed some posts on reddit or something before I bought them. Would have saved myself 80 bucks. Cable mod is the king. Thank you so much! It took a little while to save and many hours of research and online price watching.
Ok so it turns out that yes I did get them from Amazon but currently are not listed probably due to shortages. The bent god awful white cables on image 2 you seen are evga cables...a purchase I have regretted since. I got them for $80 and can honestly say without hesitation that they are horrible for routing. They don't bend well and are very stiff. They are now used for decoration purposes. :D
Let's just say whenever me and my buddy were putting it together there was a lot of that's what she said jokes LOL but yes it's HUGE I will be posting some of the footage of us mounting it. Thanks for stopping by!
I think I actually bought those off of amazon. I love them! They were easy to route and match my build. I got the all black cables so what I'll probably do when I get home and I'll update the list with the lean that way if you'd like you can get them as well. Sorry about not including it my mistake!
Thank you man and I always tell myself this if you want something work hard for it and save up for it before you know it you'll have it in your hands. Keep on brotha
I almost got a 1950x for 250 last year. I do agree with what you're saying though as far as work and gaming I can't tell you how much of a good investment this threadripper has been even for a ryzen 7 1700 it's really good cuz I mean 8-core 16 threads you can't beat that. You can game you can stream you can edit all-in-one machine without being bogged down at all. I love AMD for what they did they really stirred the market. Keep on brotha!
Hello and thank you! I have to do some more intensive testing but so far I have seen about a 7 degree difference. Keep in mind this cooler is massive compared to the sp3. I am excited for the 3000 series coming this year as well! I might stay with my 1950x since it's treated me so good. Won't hurt to peek though! :P
I simply went with the air cooled choice due to potential leaks, fumbling with tubing, etc. I had used AIO's in all my past builds and I had no problems at all just got tired of them. Air coolers work better most of the times. Less worry. Less hassle. Cleaner look. I had the Noctua SP3 on before. It has a relatively small footprint and I had no issues with it. I just got tired of looking at the darkrock and was like welp it's time for you to go in lol :D So far so good though. I have a good wind tunnel due to the orientation of my fans and my performance has not been hindered at all due to it being OC'd to 4ghz. Most AIO's have not come up with a proper solution to PROPERLY cool and dissipate the heat these chips create not to mention all the horror stories online on how their AIO's started leaking or malfunctioned. I wanted reliability and with be quiet! I have got the best and quietest in the industry. Thanks for y'alls comments! :D
Sorry for the late reply! I went with air cooler because I wanted to remove the possibility of leaks. Currently I am sitting at 3.8 and I rarely go over 58 on temps with the Noctua SP3. I am currently loving it's performance. No issues at all and really quite.
Oh not at all! I was planning to make a build with the same mobo. and wonted someone who had used it to give me some good feedback on it. Plus at the time I posted reviews were not present. Thank you!
I know right? I personally don't use chrome. I use firefox but I have heard it's a pain. Thank you for your comment! :D
hello and thank you for commenting. whatever works! :D
Hello and thank you for commenting! It is currently sitting at 3.7
You can with AURA sync. All the colors.
How has that motherboard held up thus far?
How is that mobo? Any issues thus far?
No worries! Good luck!
Sorry for the late reply! It is possible to remove the shroud but you need to remove the metal punch screws/stamps. Not exactly sure what they are called. The shroud is not held in normally with screws.
That is strange? Have you contacted Inwin over the issue??? I will send out an email as well. Maybe it's a header issue??
From mobo to front panel? Yes. I ended up disconnecting it later on as I had the PC case windows facing me which removed me seeing the rgb spectrum flowing. Just went with the mobo and ram rgb :D
Sorry for the late reply! And YES! It's soooo easy to use. I had my little boy (6 years old) help me and if it's easy for him to use well I recommend for everyone given proper guidance and supervision is presented prior to starting.
Have you pushed the ram to the full 3200 stable??
Hello! Beautiful PC build. I was wondering if you were able to push the full 3200 with the mobo and CPU?? Thank you!
It was made for both gaming and editing. I specifically wanted a PC that I could game and render a video in the background and have 0% loss in performance. Temps are listed on the info below the parts. I have had 0 issues with overheating. Ryzen is the best way to go for people who want bang for the buck performance. Thank you for the comments :)
Sorry for the late reply! Work. And yes it won't take long. Planning to add another 16 gig to it eventually for editing. Aesthetics are in mind for this build. Clean and beautiful. I also have custom sleeved cables from evga. Will make this build look very good. I'm excited!
Sweet! I'll send you my parts list as well so you can see it.
Thank you for the fast reply! I myself am going with a 7700k for my build this next month. Please upload more info/pics when you do fit the i7 in! I'm curious to see how well it oc's. Thanks again!
Thank you so much for finally adding a review to the mobo! I've been waiting for someone to comment on their build with this particular mobo but no avail. Besides the ram was any other issues presented later in with the build?
Thank you so much for the quick reply! This will be my next gpu. Best wishes my friend!
Beautiful build! Is the GPU loud as some people have said? I am seriously considering getting this card for my build. Thanks! :)
How were you able to fit an AM3 cpu cooler into an AM3 socket?? PCPP won't allow me to add it to my build
Beautiful build! I'm building a similar pc and was wondering if the 1080 gave you any problems during the installation? Thanks!
