I've done it years ago with a watercooled 5960X build. It's safe. The temperatures don't just spike to max junction. It takes some time to heat up the block.That's a lot of risk that you don't have to take for nothing.
I don't claim to understand why you are doing all the logos, but that is pretty damned excellent customer service!So...as I'm getting closer to completing the build I decided to start 3D Printing logos of the companies whose products I'm using in the build...
I already have the MSI Dragon, Ryzen, EVGA, Aorus, and Corsair logos in .stl format but I don't have a Bitspower logo...
I searched online a few days ago and couldn't one for them anywhere so I went to the site hoping they had one available for downloading (but there isn't one listed on their site)
I sent them feedback via their contact page and basically stated, "It'd be nice if you had the .stl file for your dragon logo on your web site so people who use your products can print your logo to attach it to the case"
They responded and said they don't have an STL file and inquired about my build, so I gave them the specs and sent them a couple in-progress pics.
They responded via email this morning asking me what dimensions I would like the logo to be made in.
I assume they are going to laser cut one in the size I need and mail it to me...pretty nice! (just an assumption, but that's the gist I got from the email response)
Yeah those are very niche and for ultra creator studios. I cant think of a single home user, even professional that would benefit from 64 cores. I'm not limiting a persons ability to make use of but software just doesnt scale that high. Multi thousand dollar creation packages might. For instance your not going to see a performance gain on Davinci resolve 16 past the 3960x, atleast for the price difference, especially since resolve uses gpu like 75% of all operations. The 70x and 60x are almost neck and neck in top tier softwares. The 48 and 64 will be great if you are running for instance a Davinci group project with say 10 editors and a local editor working on the workstation. A typical type scenario for a production house. If my son was older I would train him in resolve some could work on our videos together but hes only 6And now there's not only a 3990X but also a 3980X (48c/96c) announced.
They are probably part of the big shipment that AMD sent out to Best Buy as well. I'm getting my 3950X from BB on Wednesday.If anyone is interested, Amazon has the 3950X in stock at $749:
My el cheapo Asrock AB350 pro4 mb's has the bios update for a 3950x. I was thinking about a 3600 though.
A couple days ago, Amazon was showing delivery dates in late January. I wonder if those orders will be now shipped this week.If anyone is interested, Amazon has the 3950X in stock at $749:
I do not use all the cores. I use it for gaming and browsing. I figure I can OC the 3600 pretty good.It will be a sidegrade from your 1700 @ 3.8 ghz. Wait until you can afford a 3700X (that would be about 30% faster), or wait for Ryzen 4000 series to pick up an 8-core ( would be closer to 40-50% faster).

Here's it done now with my 3970X build - it's alive!

The board cycled through some boot codes for around ~30 seconds, and then went into the bios. I'd say the system was on for about ~1 minute, and the temperature was pretty stable at ~50C. I could have looked through the bios a bit more for a few minutes, but I just wanted to verify that what I had connected was working. All looks good.
Unfortunately it'll still be ~2 weeks before I actually start using this since I'm waiting on 90 degree fittings that I need to measure out first to get the proper extension height, etc. I'm going with soft tubing but going to make it as clean / hard looking as possible. No plans to watercool the GPU either since it is late in the RTX release cycle. Maybe the next GPU I get will be water cooled, and maybe I'll do hard tubing then too.
No it won't the st will be a lot better and the Mt will be about the same. A 3600 should be at least 30% faster then his 1700 in gamingIt will be a sidegrade from your 1700 @ 3.8 ghz. Wait until you can afford a 3700X (that would be about 30% faster), or wait for Ryzen 4000 series to pick up an 8-core ( would be closer to 40-50% faster).
3600 is NOT a side grade.I do not use all the cores. I use it for gaming and browsing. I figure I can OC the 3600 pretty good.
In gaming, yes, but not in threaded apps. The extra cores close most of the gap. Bit given his primary use is gaming, the 3600 will be quite a bump, though I'd go for the 3600X. For gaming, letting the processors regulate boost themselves vs ocing usually provides more performance and the 3600X will self clock higher.3600 is NOT a side grade.
Anyone commenting that a 1700 is the same is ignorant. And I don't mean that in the ass hole sense. But again I reiterate, people just don't realize how much 30+ MB of cache is for $179. 3600 is SIGNIFICANTLY faster than 1700
Not enough biohazard or radiation symbol ones for that lol.
I have some in my S340 so my EPS cables don't hit the fan blades lol.If you don't use grills, you may not have a finger to actually point at the one you picked
On the desktop it's fairly safe....If you don't use grills, you may not have a finger to actually point at the one you picked

Nice system though! How do you like the msi board?
I had a delta do basically the same thing and ended up with 9 stiches and nerve damage on my left index finger...makes typing "fun"On the desktop it's fairly safe....
I had a screaming fan I took out of a Supermicro server take a fingertip off a while back though. Those things are dangerous.
I was testing it, and it torqued so much in my hand when it came on, that I lost my grip and stuck my finger tip in it.
It's more obvious with the RGB lights on. The other picture you have with the system off is also super close up and at a different angle where they aren't as obvious. I don't think I saw all or even any of the previous ones. If I did, I was obviously not paying close attention.I've probably posted 20 pics of my in-progress build and in probably 99% of the ones with fans in the picture, they had grills on them...and you're just now noticing?
Fair enough.Not enough biohazard or radiation symbol ones for that lol.
Yikes!I had a delta do basically the same thing and ended up with 9 stiches and nerve damage on my left index finger...makes typing "fun"
My gigabyte does this to my 3960x thing tries to feed it 1.5 v core on pbo to run 4.3. I don't know if it's an amd thing or my mb.This MSI BIOS is a dumpster fire containing a dumpster fire.
Only slightly less annoying is the 8TB Superman hard drives I have installed...
Superman drives?! WTF are they?!?!
The only time one shows up is when the other disappears...go figure. Oh...one of the LEDs on the Raystorm Pro block died 10 minutes into use...of course I'd have to remove everything to get to it to remove it and replace it...I'll just unplug the SATA power connector.
Those annoyances aside...the read/write of the Sabrent NVME drives isn't horrible. Not great either...but I can live with it.

My CPU bounces around between 4GHz and 4.2GHz (it did drop momentarily to 3.8GHz but it's been pretty solidly at 4 or above since I powered it up using stock settings except for the INSANE voltage MSI puts to the CPU when "Auto" is selected...srsly...WTF are they thinking? I don't need 1.49V nor would I ever choose it.
Any benches you want me to run?
Think you should return that juicy jizz spewing board and get something that is nice and clean like a GigabyteWell it turns out MS decided to shove the 1909 cock down my throat so I'm sitting here waiting for them to nut so I can get back to configuring it to not do that again.
