Yeah, red is tricky to photograph. It blows out so easily unless you lock exposure. Esp LEDs.

@OP, would def like to see a few pics w/ LEDs off.

Indeed it is! I skipped the soft tubing route since it's a showcase build.

Thanks! As toasty as any blower card. One is 77 and the other 80 under full load.

Yeah. Just with the U12A though. It seemed pointless on the Prism since it couldn't even turbo that well. Just did that for benches though. Per CCX OCing. 4.5, 4.5, 4.25, 4.2. Just long enough for Cinebench and Time Spy.

They were similar, but with the way boosting works on Zen2, the U12A was able to boost much higher. The Prism hit 90 sometimes under synthetic load, the U12A never went past 85.

I've already got it. And yes, the workloads I use will benefit from the extra cores. I don't do much gaming.

Recently, yes. In fact, I'm redoing this one with a 3950X, larger rad, and different res config.

Thanks! I covered that pretty well in the first paragraph of the build description. Give that a quick read.

Yeah. I did that while it has a 2700X in it. The board and RAM are re-used.

Thank you! Yes. It was quite an honor to get to do my first ever custom loop with such a beast of a card. Might be addicted to custom loops now lol.

Wraith prism was fine at stock, but would only do like 3.8-3.9 all core. Boosted to like 4.4 w/ just PBO enabled (on a few cores) The U12A was able to overclock beyond all that. 4.1 all core and boosted to 4.6 with just PBO enabled.

Lol thanks! The card has a waterblock from the factory, so I don't think they sell the backplate or block separately.

Power is not an indicator of quality. You can have massively garbage 750 watt PSUs.

Thanks! Yeah, this thing is getting a 3950X the second it drops. Hoping I get lucky at my local Microcenter. They always seem to be among the first to get stock of things.

It keeps my 1950X a more than reasonable temps. I don't overclock it, but it boosts nicely on its own. I'd imagine with its lower core count, the 2920X would do just fine.

Thank you! That's one of the reasons I didn't go w/ an RGB res. I didn't want everything to be so in your face red.

Oh, that! I theorized that it's either a port pass-through of some kind, or just a remnant from reused tooling. But yeah... no concrete idea.

Thanks! Are you referring to the PCIe slot? It would be for expansion in other cases where there are accessible PCIe slots, just not in this specific case, so it's not really usable.

My 3900X is well tamed even w/ PBO on, so you won't have any issues with a 3700X I assume.

Yeah, it's very basic. Just a big metal box, but quality is there. Nothing threatened to cut me. It flexes a bit with the drive cage removed since that acted like a center brace, but in a rack that hardly matters.
