Great build, super power for sure. I just can't get past Steve from GamersNexus ripping on this case at every chance he gets, so every time I see a build in one I just chuckle. More so because CM directly created the mesh version of this, because it was the original version he ripped on and they (Steve and GN) modded it with mesh for better air flow and CM wasn't too thrilled.
H500p mesh is definitely one of the best, if not the best case for thermal reduction
Always like seeing a fellow ripper. Hope it serves you well!
Are you running Linux by any chance? If so could you post the IOMMU groups?
Ditto. This is one of the boards I'm considering for VFIO.
If you need the code to list your groups, it's here:
That mobo looks ridiculous!
Great Build. Where did you get the case? It looks like the H500P Mesh Grey which I can't find anywhere in the UK. All the UK sellers just sell the H500P Mesh White.
thanks! it's widely available here in my country, philippines.
Where is airflow from liquid cooler radiator going.into or out of the case.just wondering coz I'm new to pc building and thinking of getting this case and wondering how to mount the radiator of this build because it has rdb fans on top so I was thinking how it would look if you put fans on top or even if you do. Thx
Mind putting picture of how the top looks.did u change direction of fans?
Threadripper kinda sucks at gaming when used normally, but activating AMD's "Game Mode" for TR disables 8 of it's cores and it becomes a beast.
It disables half of the dies
It still sucks at gaming compared to consumer CPUs
That's the fault of optimization, not the CPU itself.
It has to do with the architecture
Its the same reason the 2950WX isn't the "Workstation God" that you think a 32c CPU would be
No, the reason the 2990WX isn't the "Workstation God" that you think a 32 core CPU would be is because no applications can currently utilize it's power. Just look at the 2990WX's stock Cinebench score. It's insane. It's not a problem with the architecture. It's the problem with the software you would be using. Same reason that Ryzen does terrible in CSGO compared to Intel CPU's. Terrible optimization for that platform. No Software today is optimized to utilize 32 cores and 64 threads, because no CPU up until TR2 was released existed with that many cores.
performs the same as a 2700X in gaming mode... LMBO
