I was wanting to see what made you choose the ASUS ROG strix x399-E Gaming board over the MSI MEG? I know its cheaper but just curious what else influenced your decision to get that one instead of MSI Meg
Just curious.. Why did you choose the MSI meg over the asus zenith or asus rog x399-E mobo? im trying to find out which board is better and why. im looking at buying the 2990wx and not sure which one i wanna do. I have always done asus but i see alot of people with either the msi meg or asus zenith but more with the msi meg.
Currently i have an c99 asus mobo with intel i7 6900 and 64gb ram and two 1080s. i may end up having to get new ram as i dont think my ram on my x99 board will work even though its ddr4. Do you ever use the full 128gb or no? im trying to get back into 3d modeling/animation so thats what this build will be for. just wandering what board i should go with and if 64gb would be better or 128gb. I do custom watercooling with ekwb components so cooling is no problem for me all i have to do is get the cpu monoblock for the correct board.
Anyone with input is welcome. Thanks in advanced for the help.
Ok.. I also have 64gb of ddr4 im using on my x99 board with an intel i7 6900k and didnt know if it would work as well or no.
is this model ram compatible with this board? CMW128GX4M8C3200C16
oh ok ill have to check that link out. is the new one gonna have the same power consumption and need a 1600w psu or no? if i wait till august then ill have enough saved to get it all i ith new ram wnd psu and waterblock etc. maybe. Just wandering how much that cpu is gonna be and how it will have atleast 32 cores and 64 threads.
if i can afford to max out the ram at that time i will but im content with the 64gb i have if it works in the new system. 2866 or 2933 either one would be good for me. thats ine thing i read is 8 sticks you could onoy do 2933 max. Just trying to fogure out what board. asus zenith or the asus alpha or msi meg or what. theres like 3 asus and one msi board to choose from. always been an msi fane but like the m.2 exactly ansion board on msi meg.
oh ok, yea i've always done Asus myself. Last time i used MSI was when the first AMD's came out that were able to do dual CPUs on the mobo. I just see alot of people using the MSI Meg more than anything and im just curious as to why. I know on newegg i can get the combos at the links below but they dont have the zenith version as a combo. so im wandering if my 1200w psu will be enough with you saying it got up to 900w with what i got currently. i plan on using everything i currently have minus the mobo, cpu and waterblock. RAM i currently have will be on amd system. Looking at buying it over the next couple months max i think. I was gonna do separate CPU and GPU loops but decided to do on reservoir. Top rad cools after my gpus and then goes to cpu then res then to front rad. not sure if im gonna do side fans. Not sure if it will help my system much. was thinking of doing push pull on both rads but not sure if that would do much to accommodate the price of 7 more fans. Thats one reason why i didnt do the side fans so i can have better cable management. Plus wanted the system as light as i can. One thing i like about the MSI is it has the 4 slot m.2 expansion board so i can fill it up and have less other drives. Most the time and ill do some testing and post screenshots of the temps etc soon but dont think my gpus get above 50-55c at hard gaming but cant remember and my cpu is close to the same maybe less but ill do some testing and see maybe with prime95 or heaven benchmark or something. hopefully i dont have to upgrade the psu to 1600w with what i have and want with the threadripper 2990wx.
Atleast i hope the ram i currently have will work ont he AMD threadripper system build.
from what i read if you fill up all 8 slots at 128gb it caps it at 2933mhz. Otherwise 1 stick per channel will do 3200mhz
What made you choose the ASUS ROG Zenith over the ASUS Strix or MSI Meg or other board? Also can you post a pic of how the inside looks on the other side of those fans so we can see the cable routing and all?
Here's my build of the same case.
So i go to completed builds list. i only have one. I view it. I click the edit button to the right of the name next to delete button. that takes me to a screen that has an orange background at top. then pics below it and then description and parts list below that with Parts list on the left column. I click edit on the left column for parts list. That takes me to a screen similar to the previous but all my images listed with a link above them called "Use this Part List". below the images is a list of parts on my current completed build. No edit button for any one of those items. If i choose the GPU section of my completed build parts list then it takes me to a list where i can find my new gpus but i have to save them to a new parts list that doesnt have anything to do with my completed build parts list.
There is no button next to any of the individual parts that has an edit button to edit that particular part and swap it out. the only way i can see is to recreate my WHOLE ENTIRE build on a completely new parts list and swap out the whole parts list which is freakin time consuming to swap out two things on it. If i have to ill create a video of my steps so everyone understands what im talking about.
Again everytime i click on the GPU section of my completed build, it takes me to a screen to find my new gpus but it saves as a whole new parts list with ONLY them in that parts list and is COMPLETELY separate from completed build list. The completed build list still has the old ones in the list.
Hey guys, thanks for the comments so far but im not talking about inside my desktop. Im talking about the completed build list i created and got approved here on pcpartspicker. It lists two EVGA 1080 ACX cards and i need them to be updated to two 1080 iCX cards instead in my completed build list here on pcpartspicker.
sorry for such and extremely late notice like 6 months after but never really checked this lol but thank you. I love em myself. Definitely worth the money.
The watercooling has dropped my temps alot. The 1080s would go to about 60-70 and sometimes 75 depending on the load when playing BF1 and thats with a high fan curve. Now they get around 35-45 max depending on load when playing BF1. I use to have my monitors plugged into the top 1080 but i moved them to the bottom cause using the top caused it to rise in temps more than the bottom so now they are failry close to each other and i dedicate the top to physX. Cant remember what the CPU did on BF1 so will have to screenshot that one but i wanna say the package was between 40-50 max. Dont think it got above 50 and most the time it stayed around 49 and below.
yea i do to. i got one free when they were giving em out for some reason or another i forgot but the other one i bought and it was a very good investment. I highly recommend people to get em if your looking for a clean aesthetically pleasing look. I tried using them in my haf932 amd edition case but wasnt enough room for the power connectors.
Thank you! i uploaded about 7 more that i took with my iphone while the computer was running. not the best pics in the world but its fully filled and running. and uploaded a screenshot of the temps on idle.
