    If your stable with only the 8 pin your fine but you should be able to install the 4 pin cable (half of an 8 pin) without causing issues

    Rampage VI Extreme far nicest Rampage. I love so much combination of Silver-Black for hardware.
    Few things on RVIE are very high style... I/O Port Shield, shining of RGH LEB under Silver shroud (look amazing silver/transparent)...

    Hello

    I need your opinion, I change a little tubing (adding a waterblock for the SSD in the circuit )
    So before it was like that

    But I think it's a little empty above the CG (no tube)
    And so I thought to do like that (and I take the tube CG => out of box, as on the first picture)

    For the junction between the SSD (right end) and the CG (from below), it will be several angled fittings (if it is possible of course)
    What do you think ?

    Thanks for your help

    Personally wouldn't bother changing again, looks quite clean as it is.

    Basin Falls refresh.....
    I was on the fence between last seasons HEDT chips with a delid or this seasons soldered chips. My golden 5GHz 7900X has served me well but I felt the need for more cores but without the compromise of killing high clocks too terribly. We know what the 79XX chips will do AFTER they have been delidded and given the liquid metal treatment. I admittedly paid for a binned chip on the 7900X for more than the obvious. SL upped their game with a 1 year warranty on an otherwise warranty voided chip. Something about risking $1K-$2k on a simple mistake just doesn’t appeal to me. I’ve been researching the crap out of it and in my mind anyway the refresh just makes more sense. Reviews are all over the place with none making much sense. Everyone cried when Intel went to toothpaste under the IHS and are now crying because it’s soldered. *I’ll trust Der8auers conclusion that delidding the refresh and going with LM is not a good decision. Firstly your warranty is gone and secondly it’s nearly a certainty that the chip will be damaged, he destroyed one himself. On subsequent tries there was success in the delid then hours upon hours of lapping the IHS and the Die after damaging it scraping off the solder. In the end.....the result was 3C drop and no gain in OC.

    The prices on last seasons chips didn’t go anywhere. Only saw one VERY short lived purge of 7960X chips by the egg for $1399. The 7980xe is still listed above the MSRP of the 9980xe with few exceptions. Microcenter has a few floating around for $100 less.

    Ok so I’m committed to the refresh based on 3 years of warranty, a year to improve the process and decent thermal performance without modifications. I have 30 days with my source to swap out if needed. Now which? The 18 core variant is just too much heat. A marginal OC requires extreme measures. LN2, chillers or a radiator burried in the snow. So that one checked off my list. That leaves 3 choices of 12, 14 or 16 cores. I’m sure the 9900X and 9920X will do better based on more change and larger die but not my area of interest as I don’t think they will do any better than what I already have. So that’s down to 14 or 16. *This weighed heavily for quite awhile. In the end I took in some advice on a sweet spot between high core count while maintaining as much clock speeds as possible and went with the 9940x. If I can get 4.5 on all cores I’ll be happy. More is always better though!

    So while refreshing the CPU a few other things need refreshed too. While I would love to put two 2080ti cards in I can’t justify spending more than twice as much for one as what I *paid for two 1080ti cards. The 2080s still cost more than the 1080ti cards when I got them but fall well short of beating the older generation. That and the investment already in WC blocks puts that out of my mind. I am dumping the VROC array. While it gives some very impressive numbers on synthetic benchmarks for sequential operations the latency of the raid 0 cuts the performance of the most important part, low que depth performance by a pretty good margin. I went from 300MB/S random 4K reads to 200MB/S due to the raid latency. The raid also causes a significant increase in boot times. My conclusion for VROC is if you need to move around large files expeditiously and that’s more important than actual speed of all other operations then *VROC is suitable. If you are doing it for redundancy and don’t mind the high cost of Intel only drives then it’s also a viable alternative. If you want your OS and apps to experience 6 times the speed of the next best thing then intel drives non raid are your best bet. Add to all this that the only viable option to even do a decent VROC set up required the use of 2 PCIE slots cutting one of your GPUs back to 8X I opted to empty my PCIE slots leaving nothing but the GPUs. There are more options now with the introduction of the M.2 optometrist drives and I may try them on the DIMM.2 later. *I’m going with a single 905P 480GB U2 drive and the existing 1TB 960 pro as app overflow like those 50-100GB game installs.*

    The 900D obsidian is also being retired in favor of a more open air design. Here it the latest concept in HEDT builds....a cardboard box!*

    Just kidding, I broke down and went over the edge. That’s an Enthoo Elite getting filled up. As soon as I get a few more straggler parts in and finish up basic configuration in BIOS and OS it’s all getting put back together. Ditching most of the AURA and going with Corsair RGB fans and strips that have nearly unlimited address abilities. *I’ll post up a few during pics and the finished product later. In no hurry as I want it right and this will be my last build for a few years.

    Sorry for the sideways pic, inherent to this forum after several years now when posting JPEG. *I’ll fix it later. If you double click on it it will open correctly.

    Edit, just playing with it on a 280 rad and 4.6 on all cores was easy as pie with 1.2V (might do less) and LLC 3. Hottest core was 80 with most topping out around 70. Don’t want to push too hard on a cardboard box. I’m certain I can get at least 4.7 if not 4.8 once it’s in the case with adequate rads and pumps to support it.*

    Well Back up and punt. The single U2 905P doesn’t perform as well as it does on paper. The 900P AIC single gets over 300MB/s 4K random reads where the 905 only gets 180MB/S. As much as I wanted to put both GPUs vertical I’m not going to sacrifice that much performance over it so the VROC raid 0 900Ps are staying. *Tried everything under the sun from plugging it into the U2, using an NVMe adapter in either DIMM.2 slot and in a mini hyperX card. Every combination for BIOS set up and they all yielded the same.*
