Lucky. But I know not all X99 boards have had consistent BIOS updates for microcode.

Do you have issues with the updated Intel microcode screwing with the multiplier for overclocks?

Yup, that's true.

A used Titan V might be worth the investment if HBM on Nvidia is important to your ML algorithms.

LOL, then the next step would be cable combs for the sleeved PSU cables. :P

You excited about Threadripper 3000? Judging by your workload I think those kinds of workloads would require that many cores for complex designs.

Would the Radeon VII have done any better for ML and Deep Learning with it's HBM memory?

Also, I just noticed that PS/2 Keyboard.

So clean. This kind of build is where the Asrock X570 Aqua board would fit in perfectly.

Make sure you use the GRC Spectre and Meltdown tool to turn off Spectre and Meltdown mitigations to get your performance back. Those mitigations took a HUGE hit on these older CPUs.

Very good choice on the Dark Rock Pro 4, as it is better suited to the higher thermal density of these 7nm chips.

Yup, Nvidia decided to never do any drivers for Mojave and up, despite the modular Mac Pro coming soon.

The last Nvidia driver for High Sierra also has severe bugs on Pascal from my recollection.

Do watch out for that Enermax cooler failing over time. In the case that happens, you may be better served by a Dark Rock Pro TR4.

I think there are distro plate front panels for the O11 Dynamic, but was this choice of distro plate because of the frosted look of it?

I can also understand if you wanted to keep all the glass panels and not replace the front glass panel with a distro plate.

In the very least the bottom should be all intakes, with lower RPM on the top exhausts.

Or put the 360 rad on the top of the case and make the side intake.

Yes, but that's pretty much the limit for 80 Plus Bronze. You can load 80 Plus Platinum a lot more. Even a SF600 with a ATX adapter plate is better than 80 Plus Bronze.

Yikes. Go for a EVGA 650 P2 if that's the case. Don't want you damaging your hardware by overworking the PSU.

More pics of the inside? Since the PSU is non-modular, I'm wondering about the cable management in that ITX form factor.

Did you remember to turn off Armoury Crate? That crap auto-installs even if you have a clean installation USB of Windows 10.

The UEFI on the card might be too new for the system. It's happened before. Radeon VIIs don't boot on P55 systems from my recollection.

Just be careful upgrading GPUs as the Define C doesn't have much room with a AIO in the front like that. Shortest card I know of right now is the PowerColor 5700/5700 XT Red Dragon, but upgrade to Navi at your own risk as Mesa support for Navi is still a little flaky.

Radeon VII definitely won't fit with the AIO.

How did this not get a feature? This is an excellent single threaded clock speed to GPU combo! I don't imagine any game would choke on this machine not unless the actual game is unoptimized...

How loud does the Radeon VII get in gaming? If it does get loud, I've heard of people modding their VIIs with the Morpheus II cooler and 2 120mm Noctuas, then it becomes whisper silent.

A new bug popped up where soft reboots turn into failed coldboots. You can fix that by making the MemCadBusClkDrvStren at 20ohms and ProcODT at 60ohms or 53.3ohms. Was able to properly reboot with these settings applied.

Are you planning an upgrade on the CPU? 1000W for the PSU hints at upgrade plans.

The EVGA CLC 240 would fit in the top exhaust and would have been a better choice in terms of fit.

Unfortunately the Meshify C does not give much wiggle room for 280mm AIOs.

Have you tried CorePrio to fix the Windows 10 issues with the 2990WX?

https://bitsum.com/portfolio/coreprio/

Also, if you're using stuff like the Xilinx designer or Altera Altium, the Nvidia Creator drivers might be better suited to those programs.

Do be sure to install the Creator drivers rather than the Game Ready drivers, since they're more optimized for CAD and Solidworks-like apps.

That may be due to the excess heat from the GPU being dumped into the case. In a Sugo, a blower style GPU would make more sense vs an open faced card.

Negative pressure doesn't help thermals as much. It could be better if you moved to a lower profile cooler and switched to positive pressure on both cooler and intake fans since the 3600 is only a 65W part.

Negative pressure could also suck in dust, making the dust filter where the intake fan is kinda not doing it's purpose.

I'd switch to a lower profile cooler and switch the system to a positive pressure setup. If necessary, also go for a blower style 2070 Super like an ASUS Turbo.

Tech YES City has found there's a big difference if you plan to do high refresh at all on the system. Vsynced to 60fps, you won't notice the difference, but 144hz and above and you will notice the difference.

E-die is extremely friendly to memory overclocking because it doesn't strain the IMC.

I guess the issues were exclusive to B450.

Might be a good idea to add ultra fine dust filters on the intakes and remove the dust filter on the front exhaust in that case. Don't want this beauty to get dusty.

Any reason the memory isn't fully populated? Virtualization is one instance where 128GB of RAM makes sense. Mixed ranks could cause speed degradation.

Also, do you have to do the Error Code 43 fix for your Windows VM with passthrough on ESXi?

What BIOS version are you running? Earlier BIOS versions had DOCP issues with the DRAM boot voltage reverting to 1.2V upon loss of standby power, and later BIOS versions (at least on the B450-I) ruined memory overclocking.

Do be sure to turn off the Spectre and Meltdown protections to gain more performance back. It's necessary on Lynnfield because it severely affects performance on LGA 1156.

Tech YES City promotes the crap out of them and they are a bad influence in that fashion. The rest of the advice stands, but in no way should you tolerate them receiving ad money from illegal websites to promote illegal keys.

People like Tech YES City and Joker Productions (even TechPowerUp) have been promoting these grey market sites so when people look to budget builds they get suckered into thinking this is legitimate, when it completely isn't. Don't trust those sources if they promote using it because they're promoting illegal activity.

Beware that the Arctic Freezer 7 fans are impossible to replace after the fan dies due to the 100% custom design. Be prepared to go to a Hyper 212 in case the fan on that thing dies.

Do be sure you're on the latest BIOS because it fixes DOCP issues with the X470-I and B450-I.

Also, use "Performance Enhancer" Level 1 to get proper boost behavior.
