Description

Swapped out my launch day 1700X for a 3900X, changed the original cpu water block from a Swifttech ​Apogee XL2 to a Alphacool Eisblock. Had some nickel plating issues with my original EKWB Vega waterblock so i swapped it out for a Heatkiller IV and added the RGB strip. Still need to buy some new sleeved cables as i replaced my original 850w Evga gold with a Evga 1600w platinum.

Hey you never know. My first got featured much to my surprise. Relative to this it's really simple.

Nice, nothing crazy with my loop tried to make it as simple for myself as possible. Your setup was really well thought out. As of right now all i have is a cheap desk crammed in a barracks room so nothing worth taking photos of.

its at 4.2 all core at 1.3v, i can push 4.4 all core at 1.33 but its stable in gaming but not in prime so just backed it down to 4.2 for now.

I love those keycaps. RGB lighting looks so good through them and really makes it pop

Nice! I really like the look of that heatkiller IV over ekwb. I bought one for my evga 1080 ftw2 - it was also one of the only ones I could even find.

Also I guess that answers my question about how well the 3900x performs on CH6 motherboard. I have the CH7 and I'm assuming they're about the same, maybe a extra power phase or something. I'm currently using a 2600x I've had for awhile.

I had some cold boot issues with the last bios and auto voltages are extremely high for my comfort so i had to manually set my voltages until the bios matures. Other than that the board has been rock solid and has my ram overclocked to 3600mhz timings could be better but i haven't really tired playing to much with it. My EKWB block was great but it ended up with some plating issues and needed to be replaced. The heatkiller block aesthetically is probably one of the nicest looking blocks and does a great job keeping my Vega cool under load, once i replace the vega ill definitely look for a heatkiller block for whatever card i get next.

I agree about the heatkiller block. Were you able to get higher freq on the RAM coming from 1700x while on the same motherboard? I am trying to find a 16-32gb kit for whatever is the fastest RAM that will work on CH7.

i was stuck on 2933 for a long time with my 1700x and managed to get it to 3200 with the ryzen dram calculator. my kit runs at its XMP now but the timings arent the best at 3600.
