    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD NVIDIA PS5 XBOX

    Thanks for the heads up. So how did you know the shuffle was about to start? This was the closest I have got to a new GPU, but of course came up short and got the "You Almost Got It" email. I'm getting ready to give up.

    Gearing Up for Threadripper 2990X Cooling

    I think the performance is pretty good for 1950X. What is it barely ok in? For video there are applications that don't use all of its threads and on the gaming side even less of those threads are used.

    How hot is your Threadripper?

    Nice. I was wondering why my setup seemed so much "cooler". Guess I got lucky and Corsair had a flat cold plate out of the box. As you start overclocking, post your settings. I hit the wall trying to get past 3.8 GHz, but that is me not familiar with MSI/AMD bios settings and not wanting to...

    How hot is your Threadripper?

    Setup a 1950X last night. I didn't have any trouble installing win 8.1 on a 960 pro NVMe drive with the MSI carbon X399 board. In another thread it seemed like it might be an issue depending on what build Win 10 was being issues upgrading to Win 10. Will do a fresh install once...

    Finally have the 1950x

    I'm in too with the same MSI board and starting to put together the 1950X system tonight. The CPU box is ridiculously large standing at 1/3 the height of a full tower case!

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Coldplate Mounting and Mating @ [H]

    So who is pre-purchasing the X399 motherboards and Threadripper CPU's tomorrow?

    6 finalized threaderipper boards

    I'm not sure how the measurements line up, but wouldn't the heat sinks on existing coolers be gimped somewhat since they are so small relative to the TR4 heat spreader?
