    MSI X399 Creation Threadripper Build - Start to Finish

    Yes, the first failure was the first generation, the second failure was the TR4 II model. The second unit, worked very well with the 1950X, but failed for some reason when I installed the 2950x, 45-48 Idle temps with Jumps into the Mid 50s, any load would push it to 68 throttle. The only...

    MSI X399 Creation Threadripper Build - Start to Finish

    Stupid enermax TR4 2 failed on me, that’s the second failure. Now onto my 3rd, hope it stays working added Noctua 2000 PWM fans. Swapped out the MSI M.2 card for an ASUS one with 4x1TB 970 Evo+ and moved the RTX to the 4th slot as there was more room for fresh air. All core PBO is now 4.1 on...

    MSI X399 Creation Threadripper Build - Start to Finish

    Almost done with it. Transplanted all components from the Gigabyte x399 to the MSI, so far it has been much more stable.

    MSI X399 Creation Threadripper Build - Start to Finish

    Well for my build together, I should have paid more attention to the pci-e slot spacing. My video card consumes almost 3 slots which doesn’t leave much room for the pci-e card.

    BENQ EX3203R w 2080Ti, I get the black Screen on occasion, especially in BF5 (Max everything), but much better with DX11 no RTX and some Game menus. Pendulum Demo at default range 40-60, I get the Black Screen when it dips below 48, If I set the Range 48-144, I have no issues. I'll try...

    MSI X399 Creation Threadripper Build - Start to Finish

    Thanks for the video, look forward to more. I just ordered the x399 Meg to replace my Auros x399 Gaming 7. I’ve had so many issues with the gigabyte bios (crazy voltages and instability), I’m going to stay far away from them going forward. I’m hoping for a better experience with MSI.

    What UEFI version are you running? I just updated to 4009 (4011 was just released 4/27) I don't see the options for these settings: "precision boost overdrive enabled & current limits raised to 130%" I found the Current limits on my x370-I under Digi+, but not on the B350-F board. The...

    RyZen Pstate Overclocking, method, calculation and Calculator

    I thought I was in luck with my Threadripper system, but it looks as though Gigabyte has the settings locked. There is only one setting available to adjust.

    Storage Spaces 3x10 TB + 120 GB SSD Cache, ReFS

    If the solution works well and is stable / reliable the plan is to move to RDMA interfaces (infiniband) with hyperconverged (storage spaces direct) for high iops requirements and SOFS for the rest. But to the posters point, let me know if ssd cache helps with parity performance. We avoided...
