    I could bet if some VRM have problem with cooling ROG line will work perfectly.
    I'm sorry because Deluxe. They really tried hard this year and this Deluxe is far nicer than any previous from Sandy Bridge period.
    Cool modern heatsink. But I think cooling CPU will be bigger problem than VRM.
    Anyway people with watercooling are safe, most important models get Monoblock from EKWB and no problems.
    I worry more because thermal paste, but anyway high Turbo 2.0 frequency will not allow even half of Haswell-E overclock.

    It would be nice to set them on 4.5GHz and keep that settings for gaming and everyday 24/7 in Adaptive form.
    Balanced Power - Clock/Voltage down. High Performance - Clock/Voltage up.
    That's only 500MHz lower than Intel i7-7700K after OC, but with 4-6 cores more. Ideal for gaming.
    People could expect 2-3 fps less than on i7-7700K but far faster multitasking work, seriously faster.

    I would like now to compare performance with Ryzen 7. 8 core vs 8 core. i7-7820X vs Ryzen 7 1800X.
    CPU Benchmarks, Memory Performance. 3200MHz vs 3200MHz.
    Because my little i7-5820K is humiliated with Ryzen 5.

    I have Strix board and it's ROG too. The VRM heatsink is really small and at 4.6 GHz I got it up to 98c when stressing. I didn't even unlock all the power related features. But the Strix is not really meant for serious OC anyway I think, the Rampage is for that.

    4.5 GHz on all cores is already reaching 92c on some cores on custom watercooling when stressed with OLD Prime95 testing (AVX+FMA3 disabled), my CPU is a lemon and needs 1.205 V only to keep 4.5 GHz on all cores. 4.6 is around 1.26 and 4.7 is around 1.32. So, 4.5@1.205 V is already a bit too much for a custom loop with 720mm radiator space, D5 pump and EK Supremacy EVO block.

    Also from what I've experienced the 7900X@4.5 is SLOWER than my 6950X@4.2 in testing like Fire Strike Ultra. I have both platforms but doing side to side comparison is not feasi for me right now. 7900X is faster in Cinebench, slower in 3D I have tried. Also SLI doesn't work properly with my X299 setup, only a few games fully utilize SLI. I didn't see this problem on X99 at all.

    I am surprised no more people have jumped on X299 especially here, would like to see some results if I have a problem with my setup or others see the same. Then again, this review should sum up my suspicions. http://www.hardware.fr/articles/964-...e-x-3-ghz.html

    If clock to clok Skylake-X is around 12.7 % slower, that means for 6950X@4.2 clocks the 7900X would need 4810 MHz clocks only to keep up with the speed in gaming. :S

    Even though I'm far from an extreme overclocker, I'm pretty much sold on the Apex now because of this. I'll probably have to ditch the AIO and go with custom EK loop with a VRM block in addition to the CPU block, but I've been looking for a good excuse to do that since I went away from my full custom CPU/GPU loop 3 years ago anyways. The question now is just how much the Apex will hurt the wallet.

    I suppose one could always install a few TES1-12703 coolers under those gaudy VRM heatsinks?

    Alas, Intel PCH parts (GL82X299, GL82Z270, etc) are always manufactured on yucky cheap generic green-substrate BGA carrier PCBs. No wonder everybody hides them underneath big chunks of metal and plastic, they look awful and hideous when soldered onto the middle of all-black-all-awesome mainboards. (Good to know that the heart of your mobo is an Intel PCB made to categorically standard specs, no extra fault tolerances, no extra copper weight, no extra temp rating, no extra redundancy no decoupling no nothing, lol.)

    I read reports like that on computerbase.de or pcgameshardware.de, I don't remember, but they also concluded that Broadwell-E is faster clock by clock, and much more efficient. My 6950X is running at 4.2Ghz as well and with all the recent information about problems with SKL-X/X299 it makes me wonder if a 7900X would be much of an upgrade for me at all. Maybe it's best to wait for the HCC offerings and see how they do. The Rampage boards are not out anyway so no need to rush.

    If the 7900X is less efficient than the 6950X, is it because of the architecture or bios "too young" (not optimized) ?

    I think its because big performance improvements from technical advancement are just not there anymore. Intel hit a wall and they wanted more than their typical 5% increment per generation so that performance comes at the cost of efficiency. A more refined refresh of these CPUs next year might remedy that.
