Normally, you do not think of a monoblock cooling the CPU better than a dedicated CPU-only waterblock.

    I am going to use EK's CoolStream XE 360 radiator to cool my 7900X and 7940X builds because I think it is one of the best 360mm rads when used with push-pull fans at medium to high speed (I will use Corsair ML120 fans). The XE 360 build quality is actually slightly inferior to most rads and there is a bit of flex on the panels. EK's thinner PE 360 has average thermal performance compared to the competition. But their 60mm-thick XE 360 is one of the best, and it beats Alphacool's Monsta, Aqua Computer, HwLabs, XSPC, and most others.
    Yeah I was looking at their CE version for 140mm fans. I currently have a 420mm that is 30mm thick. I have room for a 45 mm thick and it is copper so why not?!

    I currently have the alphacool U- full copper.

    I think tho I will keep the 280, 60mm thick one I have in the bottom of my case tho.

    Yes but they didn't actually have a Vario unit to review
    Hopefully AquaComputer will also send us a Vario unit to test to see whether the system really works.

    I can think of no better time to release these high end motherboards, than with the high end i9 chips.

    But make sure the OEMs, Newegg and Amazon are stocked up.

    And I thought the 7820X and 7900X were high end chips as well. I guess for those people current motherboards are good enough. I guess there must be quite a bit of people waiting for 14, 16 and 18 core chips. It's unfortunate that people with the cheaper chips (7900X) have to wait.

    I noticed that there have been no more R6E BIOS or driver updates since three weeks ago. With Coffee Lake Z370 mobos just around the corner and Intel going bonkers with the tempo of their CPU and chipset releases, thanks to AMD's renewed competition, it makes me wonder just how thinly spread out all of the mobo companies have allocated their technical resources to support all of the new Intel and AMD mobos being released this year. I cannot think of any other 12-month period during the past 30 years when there has been such a buyer's market feeding frenzy of BYOPC goodies.

    Coffee Lake Z370 is still basically a repackaged Z270, but with tasty quad-core i3, hex-core i5 and i7, and an i7-8700K that is about 50% faster than the 7700K on multi-core performance. But the 8700K will be priced similar to the 7700K. So Intel is far more interested in competing against Ryzen on pricing value, and less interested in competing against Threadripper on value with their i9s - the HCC i9s will beat Threadripper 1950X, but you pay a hefty premium price. Z370 also includes integrated Wireless-AC and an integrated 10-port USB 3.1 controller, with 6 10-Gbps ports and 4 5-Gbps ports, so some of the slower-performance ASMedia controllers will no longer be needed.

    My gaming build uses the MSI Z270 XPower Titanium and I noticed that MSI leaked out their flagship Z370 Godlike Gaming mobo last week. It actually looks robust enough to power an HEDT CPU with its 18-phase VRM (probably 12 vcore using doublers, 4 GPU, 1 VCCSA, 1 VCCIO), two 8-pin power connectors, one 6-pin PCIe power connector, two big heatsinks heatpiped together, 3 on-board M.2, and an included dual M.2 riser card. MSI added external PCIe controllers to their previous flagship mobos, so I imagine an extra PCIe controller is used here to fully support five NVMe M.2 SSDs:

    https://videocardz.com/newz/first-lo...godlike-gaming

    What is funny is that MSI originally announced this as the Z270 Godlike earlier this year. But Intel's Coffee Lake came so quickly that MSI did not even bother to release that, and MSI redesigned the exact same mobo to use the Z370 chipset instead. So I imagine that Asus is busy designing their flagship Z370 mobo too.

    I only mention Coffee Lake Z370 because, although we will create more epic i9 builds using R6E, the i9 market share, and the entire HEDT market, is small (or maybe even tiny) compared to the Coffee Lake market, and I think Z370 will be Intel's most successful chipset release in many years, thanks to AMD.

    The 14/16/18C i9 CPUs are definitely just a small niche market, a tiny drop in Intel's sales bucket compared to the number of buyers who will rush to buy quad-core i3 and hex-core i5 Z370 CPUs later this year. Some people will still buy the i9-7980XE, R6E, and 128-GB of RAM for a "bragging rights" gaming build. But I think less than 1000 or 2000 HCC i9 CPUs will be sold worldwide, and that is likely overestimated. Compare that to many tens of thousands of 6700K and 7700K CPUs already sold. And it is precisely because the HCC i9 market is so small that Intel wants the R6E to be the carrot dangling in front of the donkey that helps to pull the HCC i9 sales cart along when the HCC i9 cart starts to roll on Sep 25. Otherwise, you can still create a monster gaming rig, or gaming-workstation multi-use build, just using the 7900X with the R6E.

    Well if this is accurate I wonder if this means just Europe or the whole world. Eh who knows. We are chasing shadows at this point.

    That New Zealand site still has the same 6 available as it was two days ago. Me thinks it is phantom stock.
