    What motherboard to get for threadripper 3?

    Very interesting board. Please, keep us updated re stability, overclock (CPU and RAM), use (rendering, gaming, etc.) Are you using it with Fedora 31 or Windows?

    Thanks!!! I know we share the same passion for good challenges. To full disclosure, the Optimum Tech YouTube videos are really inspiring and have triggered my build.

    Yup! And it was fun too, once I understood how to do it.

    The OFFICIAL post pics of your SFF thread...

    I just built a mini-ITX with the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X with the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING, in the RAIJINTEK OPHION EVO! Liquid cooled, great temps, very quiet! A monster gaming machine. Here the thread of this build. Enjoy!!!

    Finally, the VGA sits properly! Raijintek offered to solve the mis-positioning of the VGA standoffs. They shipped me a plate from Taiwan on Jan 3rd 2020, and I received it on Jan 8th 2020 (in USA). This is a real fast international shipping! Thanks a lot to BR from the Raijintek customer...

    Thanks, ZeqOBpf6! I am very happy, but there is now a little evil voice inside me that says: what about a Threadripper 2 system? It does not make sense even thinking about it, I just need a good gaming system... but the nerd roots are deep in my soul. Please, help!

    To the SFF community: I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to move this thread from here to the SFF Gallery. I am under the impression that the SFF Gallery is a better place for posting SFF builds like this one. Can anybody help? Thanks

    Thoughts in the aftermath At the end, this monster ITX system came out quite nice: excellent temps, great gaming sessions at 4K! Not noisy, except that when gaming fans and pump ramp-up, but good with my headset. I am mostly impressed that my 8-year old Swiftech H220 is still kicking-in like a...

    Final Step: Switching the Glass Sides with Aluminum Panels This is a gaming monster, no need for fancy RGB stuff! Thus, the glass panels are just an air trap for me. When, finally, Newegg had the aluminum side panels in stock, I ordered them! Now, it is truly a all black ITX gaming monster...

    AMD Zen 2 Monster Gamin System

    Time to get to the Final Setting!!! I had a Swiftech H220 (first model, not the "X" one) from a older ITX system, I guess from 2011 or so. This is a no-frills AIO, with a 240 mm radiator (29 mm thick), a powerful but silent 1,200-3,000 PWM pump within the CPU block. No fancy RGB, but an...

    Adding some storage here and there Wanted to add some space for my games, so I added a 2TB M.2 Intel 660p... ...where? In the back of the Mobo, of course! ...and, just since I had a 500GB Samsung 860 EVO lagging around, I installed it in the top front 2.5" bay for a total of 3.5 TB of...

    Hi Bankie, I was concerned about it too. Despite what EVGA states, it is a perfect fit! Now, the Hybrid cooling is not installed anymore in my 2080ti, and I am thinking to sell it or keep it for another build.
