Thanks. I was on the fence about that case but it’s sick!!!
Hey can I get a link to those custom cable kit? I really like this build and want to do something like this
Any pictures zoomed out. I can’t find any non stock photos of this.
I really want to see those pics of the cooler. Seriously considering it.
It seems to be fixed after a new bios with better voltage control.
How's the motherboard. I'm considering it but the vrm looks incredibly weak. Asrock is a good motherboard company though.
The razer key switches being loud isn’t a con. They’re built that way, you should have gotten an mx brown, mx black, mx red keyboard
Wow that's incredible that you get everything for free!
Yes undervolting can prolong your graphics card life by running cooler. We don't know how long vega will last.
AMD is a great company, their only pitfalls are power consumption and intensive real time texture reproduction. Other than that they kill at editing, compression, multi threaded workloads, and streaming.
Really wish there was a Vega 64 nano. But it’s tdp makes that a dream and only a dream.
It sucks that it is literally impossible to get your hands on one unless you're fine with spending $300+ on a used case.
Okay. The max operating temperature is 95C that means it starts underclocking itself when it reaches its max temperature (95C). And when it just can't handle the temperature it will just shut down to save the CPU from basically frying. Silicon quality can also affect it but not enough to bridge the 65C you're claiming. 65C is a cool temperature. Ryzen CPUs should be kept under 70-80C for max lifespan.
The thermal throttling point for most chips is 90C
I was gonna go with the 3600 anyways (when it releases) I didn't pay attention that it was the 2600x I just looked up the 2600 on amd.com and that was the first result. I was just trying to show that their CPUs max operating temp is 95c and not 65c like you said.
Alright. Thanks for all the responses.
I have looked into it and will get a square trade accident protection plan with it for $40.
I'm upgrading in January-February 2019 when AMD announces their awesome 7nm lineup at CES.
I'm getting the Ryzen 5 3600 and (RX 3080 whatever it's named) and will remove the fans from the heatsink and use some a12x25's as video card fans instead. I want this PC for silence since my pc is pretty noisy rn.
I'll be closing this thread.
By the way in this benchmark the wraith stealth cooler tops out at a toasty 90.3 C in the node 202 and the l9a-am4 tops out at a warm (but better) 80.6 C (under prime 95 load).
All the while being very quiet as stated on the website.
the nh-l9a-am4 only goes to up to 23.6 db at max (2500 RPM)
The stock fans on the GPU would be taken off and replaced with more efficient 120mm fans acting as the GPU cooling fans instead. The fans will be connected to the motherboard and be controlled by software and will make it ramp up during load under a custom fan curve. I was just asking if any AMD AIB partner allows you to take off the stock fans and shroud and use your own fans or water block for cooling.
The CPU cooler will be the nh-l9a-am4 so it doesn't get loud at all.
I was thinking all I had to do was remove the fans.
has 2 4 pin chassis fan headers
I'm using mulitple headers as stated in my comment.
I'm using the PWM fan headers on my motherboard and having it kick in when GPU is under load through the software "speedfan"
I know for sure EVGA and Zotac are cool with this but unfortunately they only make NVIDIA cards.
In linus's video he saw 5 degrees C drops in temps on the strix 1070, which has arguably great cooling. He was using F12 PWM fans and the a12x25s are the next gen up the F12s.
I would be building in the Node 202 which has 2x120mm fan mounts in front of the graphics card intake. My idea was to remove the cooling fans off the graphics card an using some noctua a12x25 fans as the gpu fans instead making it light years quieter.
The pricing rumors most likely aren't. Prices aren't decided until 1-3 weeks before a product is launched. Plus AMD wants to make money too. They are a company after all and will price it competitively according to the market's state. They won't charge you $250 for the sake of "destroying nVidia". The RX 3080 (Navi 10's RTX 2070 competitor) will probably be priced at about $400.
The TDP is most likely correct because AMD stated 7nm allows them to make the chips just as powerful at half the power draw.
The 12% IPC boost is probably true since on a slide in AMD's presentation states that 7nm allows them to have a 1.25x performance boost. Making the clocks higher and instructions per clock being 12% higher means it probably will be 1.25x better in performance.
Yeah, you should DEFINITELY wait.
Go for the Sapphire RX 590 Special edition. It has 10-15% more performance and is only $280 for 8GB.

At high framerates screen tearing is harder to see
is there any thermal problems using the l9a on a 95W cpu (1800x)
How are the GPU and CPU temps exactly the same?
Stellar build! If money is no object you should go for some Vengance RGB PRO which is one sale right now and set the 10 LEDs to the Byzantium/Violet color you have going on.
Really clean build. +1
Awesome build! The 500W PSU is enough for this? No random shutdowns or anything? I'm building a Node 202 324W system with a 500W and that's cutting it close and makes me worry.
Do you even notice screen tearing at 144hz? +1
How is the motherboard? Can you use the wifi antennae with ethernet connected? (for the bluetooth).
Sexy pics, very clean build, very in depth. Should be featured! +1
Too clean... +1
Vega runs very hot. You need to undervolt to have good temps. The best AIB vega 64 is the sapphire nitro+ and its very expensive. The 2070 or 1080 is good and power efficient if you don't want to play around with settings to tweak it, but you'll pay more for gsync and freesync will keep costs way down.
Yes yes yes and yes
Bitwit has an excellent in depth video (55min) of him step by step making a pc.
If you're using a 9900k it is VITAL you include RGB fans. It is scientifically proven they increase performance and airflow by 15%!
From the review I hear that it overvolts resulting in bad temps. But if there’s no problem, this board is awesome.
Is that motherboard problematic? I hear it is.
Yes that’s how it exhales hot air out the back. I was just telling you my first time road bumps.
you could have it so that it pushes air through the back. the fans need a uniform airflow. Keep the fans so that their blades are facing the front of the case. You can download HWMonitor and see temps during stress testing and see which configuration works best.
