    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    It’s so odd to see a FTW3 in such a small case.

    Slim mATX case with vertical GPU mounting.

    There's also this one if you like a slim form factor, somebody put a mATX threadripper build into a Salvo Studios S401

    Are there any boutiques left?

    There are certainly some boutiques that still do full size cases still. Although many seem to go full CNC and thus gets very expensive. Something like this: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.w4004-22231590845.1.43c44c3f4eHVuX&id=609117899399

    Yes this chip basically won't do 4.4 no matter what . I'm gonna sell it and try a cheap x5675

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Are i7 970s considered some of the worst hex core X58 silicons? I see everybody with X5650+ get lower voltage and high frequency. My 970 does 4.3 (187x23) at on 1.4v on R3F. Maybe I need to ditch this and pick up a X5675. Hoping for 4.5ghz

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    Is p95 FFT supposed to not reach thermal throttling on TR? I think a sure sign of failure would be if your idling temps are 10C or more above ambient.

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    I'm not looking for break neck performance .All I needed was a full coverage 240 cooling solution that is similar to a u14s without the clearance issues. It literally just had to not leak and pump fail. Enermax couldn't even deliver that. My raystorn neo TR4 is in the mail.

    Gamers Nexus did a fluid swap. If you flush it out and the pump didn't suffer permanent damage, you should be ok with proper fluid .

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    I bought and used a Liqtech 2 240 for a bout a month. Initially it was great but I noticed my idles temps were higher about a month in and the CPU was reaching throttling temps quite easily. Easiet decision to return ever. Just going with air cooling now. Enermax is not worth the headache.

    2950X build now or wait for mobos? First AMD since Phenom2!

    6950x is a pointless SKU. 7900x ismuch better value.

    They only promised am4. No promise for tr4

    2950X build now or wait for mobos? First AMD since Phenom2!

    Broadwell-E IPC and PBO is what shits on Xeons. If you can get a 16 core V4 chip to Turbo 4.4ghz and not have meltdown, it would be very close to a 2950x

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    That's what this sentence says to me. That they stopped selling the first batch of Gen 2 because there are problems. Then in the same sentence they talk about Gen 1.

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    If you have Liq 1 return it . If you have 2 with the RGB log your temperatures and check for deviations weekly . If corrosion occurs it will be couple months from now, not right away . If you don't want to deal with the risk go with the wraithripper or a silver arrow tr4

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    Yes I did overly exaggerate with my wording. I get that people whose AIOs are still working are not making posts talking about it . However, being a product for an enthusiast platform our sample sizes are small to begin with . From the threads that did get posted the failures are not rare...

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    I wonder if they responded to Kyle's inquiry. Maybe hardocp should retract the award and add more info to the review. Because there are literally people that bought a 100% failure rate product as a result of the review .

    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    Anyone else here using a 1650 or 1680 v3 with this? My 1650v3 that runs x45 multiplier on gigabyte and EVGA x99 boards doesn't seem to overclock on this asrock board. I can set the multiplier to 45 but in the OS it never says it goes above 3.6 . Am I missing something in the stocka bios?

    How much money could they have saved using an aluminum radiator? They have the audacity to charge extra for the AIO they should have at least put in a copper rad. Cheapskates.

    ENERMAX LIQTECH TR4 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Review

    Sounds like the copper CPU block and the aluminum radiator causes major rusting issues. Your new unit will likely experience the same issues over time. This seems like a manufacturing defect, see newegg reviews of this unit. It stops cooling after 3-6 months.

    2500k @ 4.6GHz, Vcore min showing as 0.38v

    It was full on BSOD crashes, not just BF3 crashing. Another possibility is heat, in this silverstone case the video card ends up facing a stupid way This is the airflow setup I got, maybe the video card ended up in the most airflow-awkward spot?
