Average VRM setup on a top end Gigabyte board. CJ, didn't you buy a gigabyte?

With ambient about 10 -20 less than Brisbane you are in front of us up here before you turn your rig on!

I will have to post some pics of the rig up later too - I went all out this time as it was my first major upgrade for a few years, so a Caselabs build, full EK WC custom loop, and so on. I am pretty happy with it!
I'm also a very long time PCCG shopper here, along with plenty of other places such as Scorptec and Cable Chick etc.

The ambient temps are one of the few benefits of being into PC and Tech down here

The build sounds good, I'm keen to see it too.

I did, although it wasn't my first choice ( that was the Asrock Tachi) but this board was in stock now so I got it, saying that I have had no issues so far and the VRM is running cool for me.

even still that was not a bad video for the VRM on the board, it will be more than enough power for my 6 core chip considering they were not getting their 10 core to draw more than 270w when overclocked.

Hi I just have a question about cpu coolers for the new socket 2066 motherboards,i want to buy one of the corsair hydro series coolers for my x299 cpu when i buy it but none of them seem to say they support socket 2066,they only support the older 2011-3 in the compatibility part of websites selling them.

I rang up one shop and they told me that any socket 2011-3 cooler will fit the new socket 2066,is this true,i just wanted to make sure before i went and made an order for a cooler.
Thanks.

the 2011 coolers will fit the mounting is the same on 2066 socket.

Yes as said by CJ above, any 2011-3 AIO cooler will fit the 2066 socket.

Interesting review here on Toms hardware;

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ke-x,5127.html

Cherrypicking bad bits...

Quote:
Unfortunately, expensive X299-based motherboards and the need for liquid cooling make it difficult to find value in an Intel HEDT package, particularly compared to AMD's Ryzen 7 and the Skylake-S models.
and this is with a H100i...

Quote:
Overclocking is a mixed bag on Skylake-X. The Core i7-7820X appears to enjoy quite a bit of frequency headroom. Thermal throttling jumps up to bite you long before the CPU's true potential is realized, though. Although enthusiasts would like to see solder between Intel's die and heat spreader, at least thermal paste isn't as big of a problem for overclockers on the lower-power Core i7-7700K. It's a much bigger issue with the fire-breathing Skylake-X design.
and lastly

Quote:
Intel should probably feel lucky that Core i7-7820X won't be going up against AMD's Threadripper, since the cheapest model will sell for $800. As it stands, this $600 CPU has a hard time justifying its premium over Ryzen 7 1800X, which currently sells for as little as $420. Moving forward, Intel may have to get even more aggressive about winning over enthusiasts. Don't lop off PCIe connectivity. Leave the FMA units intact. Don't nickel-and-dime for storage functionality. Use solder under the IHS. We like the big dies with lots of cores able to clock up when most of them aren't active. But the competition is heating up and Intel is looking a little flat-footed.
Has this been peoples real world experience?

Welcome to the club

How have you found the overclocking?

I found that you reach the cpu's thermal limit before you hit the VRM limit.

Just bumped up my overclock to 4.6Ghz, and uncore to 3Ghz (2.4Ghz Default).

2008 Cinebench score (forgot to screenshot when I did it...lol)

hahah I never wanted RGB's but it seems like every motherboard has them now and the RGB rams are great performers so RGB it is ...



Are you guys testing with Realbench? Or other?

I read that C states should be disabled for overclocking, are you guys doing this?

This bit is amusing now the 1900X has been annouced...

$589 USD vs $549 USD.

28 lanes vs 60+4 lanes.

toothpaste vs solder.

I still kinda want a 7900X for shits and giggles but I'm going to wait and hope prices drop... that and wait for mobos like the Rampage Extreme and Dark to come out.
