Processor arrived today, test boot was a success. Kept flipping through the same numbers on the board's readout, had me worried for a minute.
Heatsink inlet is a bit closer to my pump than I expected, need to get another 90 degree fitting, and of course my go to site is under maintenance (performance-pcs).
Need to also pick up a couple of bottles of distilled water.
5:40AM update: Site was up, ordered the fittings, overnight shipping. Build should be done this weekend.
When I finally get mine I'm going to have to do my build without a test boot. I don't have anything else but the water block I am buying that can cool a Threadripper
I can't say in 25 years of doing this I've ever had a bad motherboard or CPU out of box though. (Knock on wood)
