    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    I'll snap up the first (decent) 3080 I can find. When AMD launches - and if they have availability - I'll likely pick up first available in that performance range.

    Dumb question - shutoff if a water pump fails?

    Centos 8 on both. Had not thought of doing that. Figured someone must have some sort of kill switch if water flow stopped.

    Dumb question - shutoff if a water pump fails?

    So I added a 3900x to the mix and the old 1950x just does not crank out enough heat to tax the 480 cooler. Thinking to do 2 CPUs, one pump. Any recommendations on how to power down one box if the other shuts down?

    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    Ah man... The ram I had in my shopping card jumped by $30 too. Wonder how long this blip will last. Seems a shame to leave a chassis empty.

    Anyone know if this will do quad channel?

    Any of you with an AMD GPU and Centos Stream 8.0 (or 7.7)?

    AMD updated their drivers to 19.50 and Centos bumped the build up to 1911. This works: sudo yum update -y (reboot) sudo yum install -y kernel-headers-`uname -r` kernel-devel-`uname -r` sudo dnf -y install --nogpgcheck https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm...

    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    Damn it. Just getting ready to build out the next box. Was there an event (or increased collusion) that is driving up these drive prices?

    Any of you with an AMD GPU and Centos Stream 8.0 (or 7.7)?

    I tried a bunch of stuff. Using Centos 8, the video works, but steam won't log in/connect. Using Centos 8 Streams, not so much. Steam works with Centos Streams and the video drivers, until a reboot, then the video drivers cause it to bounce back to a login prompt each access.. Looks like the...

    So if a person needed a 4-6G'ish HDD, what is the raptor of the current gen?

    On the AMD side of the house for this box. TR4/w a 1905x

    Any of you with an AMD GPU and Centos Stream 8.0 (or 7.7)?

    I thought I had this licked. Was gifted a small stack of AMD RX580's and was trying to set up AMD's driver. On a stock Centos 8 Streams install on a 1950x. (Box does double duty for work... so yes, I do run the free RHEL OS rather than some versions) sudo yum update -y (reboot) sudo yum...

    So if a person needed a 4-6G'ish HDD, what is the raptor of the current gen?

    Getting some warnings on a 4G ^h^hT WD Black. It is an old dog - well past the 5 year coverage. Were you picking a new hard drive for a largish steam collection... what is a solid performing single drive these days?

    Threadripper 2990WX - 2950X & Wraith Ripper DIY Install

    What thermal paste are you pairing up with the new CPU? As I'm moving CPUs to free up my good board for the 2950x, I actually emptied out another tube.

    GIGABYTE X399 Aorus Xtreme TR4 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Yah, was hoping that a faster bit of ram might be able to handle the 'normal' job. Got a few of these now... so time to see if I might get lucky on a set that covers a them as hardware gets shuffled around. Memory is now showing 32G rather than 24... (still dual channel) so... crap. Flaky is...

    GIGABYTE X399 Aorus Xtreme TR4 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Looks like I'm going to be replacing memory soon. Were you buying memory (8x8G) for an x399 board -- and not trying for a crazy overclock, what would you go with?
