    Theoretical maximum specs for AMD cpu based platform under Windows 7

    Bit late to party komrades due to build delays ( 6X noctua fans/gpu etc) . I confirm TR2 2950X working perfectly on Win7/Sp1 with few select updates. Initial tests with cinema 4d, blender, reaper confirmed with solid stability. Many thanks to spacedrone808,Axm77,Jandor and especially the...

    Threadripper and Windows 7

    Extremely valid points but certain applications like Adobe Photoshop and certain Digital Audio Workstation softwares, audio interface driver support severely constrain transition to Linux. Wish it were really not so.

    Question on my Threadripper 2950X temperature.

    Thanks for linking your informative blog, ffmpeg always seemed daunting but I can now learn from your blog. You are seasoned user of cygwin but for newbies of unix emulators some devs created a light weight emulator babun , I use it for light windows automation (find|grep|sed)

    Question on my Threadripper 2950X temperature.

    Off topic: You have 18TB+ storage do you run a NAS setup such as Synology/QNAP to manage these

    Theoretical maximum specs for AMD cpu based platform under Windows 7

    Thanks, have you shortlisted memory modules (8x 16GB) . With air cooling, it becomes tricky to choose right cabinet,air coolers, fans etc. Could you please include your current wish list, it would serve as valid starting point for others looking to run Win 7 on TR4

    spacedrone808, were you able to complete your 1950x Windows 7 build, I have similar requirements and share similar concerns as you.

    Question on my Threadripper 2950X temperature.

    Thank you. Those of us considering air cooling for TR4 are in minority and it is difficult to balance the configuration. Could you please edit you signature to give a complete picture of your build (RAM and speeds, cabinet).

    Problem Overclocking Threadripper 1950X

    Thank you dpriest, just like Kyle and the [H]orde solved your use case, newbies to TR4 platform like me can take valuable pointers from your build. I am just as wary of AIOs as yourself but it comes at cost of additional build considerations viz. RAM profile, PCIE clearance and cabinet to...

    Question on my Threadripper 2950X temperature.

    Hello I am interested in similar x399 build with Noctua U14S cooler. I see you have 8x8GB RAM config, did you face any issues with clearance for this large cooler, RAM sticks and first PCIE slot and did it affect your case and RAM choices

    Threadripper and Windows 7

    If it were just gaming/general usage, the suggestion "why not just upgrade to Win 10 and stop worrying" might be appropriate but not for those working on client projects. "Windows 10 deleted my files/broke my application/project delayed because of forced update" , how will a client respond...
