Looking forward to seeing some builds!
post #3 of 2629

Just picked up my 1950x. Ordered my EKWB CPU Block. Waiting on motherboard to come to local dealer.  Then I'll post pics of my build.



Motherboard is in, CPU installed. Just need my waterblock.

Just got the email yesterday from Newegg that my 1920X has been shipped along with the MSI X399 motherboard. Figured since I am now a Threadripper owner it was time to join Overclock.net... can't wait to try overclocking on this thing.
post #5 of 2629
ThreadRipper 1950X initially was a nightmare for me... This is somewhat long - but if you like reading a good real life computer story - read it. If you guy's want the pictures... I'll dig up the pictures.. But to me it's like seeing a murder scene. I want to look away, I have no interest in seeing it...

I got my 1950X a few days ago and have it in a temporary case for 'proving' (making sure theres no defective parts). The CPU installation was a nightmare, bloody nightmare and I almost began to cry - i did the unthinkable, the unimaginable. I patiently got things ready on the motherboard and CPU (I wore medical grade gloves so I didn't even get fingerprints on anything, I was paranoid)... I have high intensity LED light mast overhead blaring at full power and taking photos of every step. As I slid the CPU into the bracket very slowly - one of the sides of the orange cartridge thing was not fully in place inside the metal lip of the bracket. Gently, slowly slid it in further... Then the CPU fell through... and smashed a patch of the pins on the LGA socket and bent them... doh.gif ... I jumped up and started telling myself 'no no no no no no'.... when I saw the smashed patch of pins... I turned away and almost started balling sad-smiley-002.gif not looking at the motherboard on my desk I took so much patient time to prepare... I watched all the YouTube videos, and read all the websites explaining how to do this properly. I didn't rush anything. This was a $500 motherboard I just destroyed. Never saw 1 day of use. My bloodpressure started to rise fast, and I was flushed with anxiety. I was so ashamed of myself.

I build small circuit boards (mainly FM radio's) as a hobby and working with ultra fine connections has crossed me a few times so I own a 2000x microscope for this with a live HD camera hooked into my monitor... I knew what I had to do... The unsullied motherboard, will be sullied - I was going to bend all the pins back and attempt the unthinkable. When the CPU fell, upon impact the inertia drug the CPU into a patch of pins and inverted several.My initial fear was bending them back would break them off. The pins are too small to see with the naked eye normally because of the rows and rows causes optical illusions with your eyes eveuntally. Under the scope the pins individually look like your arm from the elbow to your hand. Imagine holding an apple out in front of you with your hand out flat. From your elbow to the hand is each pin and at the top (the palm) of each one is a rounded dollop to make contact with the CPU. Take that same hand now, and put it to your face with your had over your mouth. That's how bent many pins were.

Over the period of a couple hours and PAINSTAKINGLY bent each pin SLOWLY under the scope, each bend I expected the contact point to snap off. There so fragile. A few were bent SIDEWAYS. I found the best tool ultimately was a toothpick. Somewhat too big at time's, it was soft enough to absorb any hard edges but not leave any residue, and also did not scratch the contacts. The sideways bends I did a gentle tug-tug-tug against the pin as to not bend it too much. Nothing broke! I was down to the last, and worst bent pin - all was looking good so far and the pin's metal did not fatigue as I thought it would - they were a lot more resilient than I expected! Feeling the tautness and flexibility of the metal I believe it to be gold plated nickel. I was still wearing gloves and would frequently (gently) graze my finger along the pins in the direction that they lead (so I didnt bend anymore!) and I could feel a few rough bumps. I pushed down gently until the bumps were out. Now this last pin.. Honestly I was shaking... I didn't want to bend it, I could barely see the proper angle because of the light reflecting back into the scope was casting shadows. I had to re-assess the bend over and over... It was horrible. It looked like your arm and your making a fist, and aim your fist at your face like your going to punch your own face. The hand of the pin was bent completely back, the arm was inverted and warped... Remember the proper angle was like your holding and apple with a flat palm out in front of you. The palm would be the part that contacted the CPU.

I didn't pay for this motherboard or CPU - it was a gift from my significant other who is going on a family trip to Europe. I had a lot of problems with my i7 4930K and the Asus Sabertooth x79 developed in 2011 it was currently living in. They (the significant other) heard me rant here and there about it and decided to get me my dream PC for staying behind and watching the puppies and chickens we own. I had so many problems with that motherboard. Asus abandon it with a BETA BIOS that never fully worked and you had to reset the bios frequently to get it going like an old VW Bug. It worked when you did a certain thing to it every time and you had to keep doing that but you were sick and fed up with the random chance that it didn't want to work with you on any particular day.

The LAST Pin...
I was having such a hard time seeing proper angles, rotating the motherboard around on my desk to see the exact bend. I needed to see this because if I had a chance to bend it back - it would be only one opportunity to bend it. If I bent it too much I would need to bend this pin back and fatigue it more - it would surely break. I spent about 10 minutes examining this last little bastard. Every possible angle it could move with opposing angular force. With that toothpick... I nudged it gently here, gently there. The last swipe over the top to bend the flat top back! DONE! I pressed my finger against the top of the patch of pins again and stroke them feeling for height irregularities - some felt a little too high... I pressed down with my finger just enough to balance out the pins that were too high and it felt right. Putting the board under the scope again I looked..... It was nearly flawless! No broken pins and all rows had the same distance between each other, nothing was off canter.

Putting the CPU back in the carriage, sliding it in and feeling the bump that it was placed correctly I laid it down. Then tightened each screw a little around the clock, never tightening a single screw all the way on the first try. Little by little the ThreadRipper 1950X was torqued into place..... The time was to power it up and see .... I preyed to God this worked because I didn't know what I was going to do... I pressed the power button, light's lit up on the motherboard, no errors on the LED readout... My monitor turned on showing the Gigabyte Aorus Eagle logo on the Gaming 7 motherboard. Thank you God! Thank you! I yelled. I couldn't believe it... I did it. Everything seems to always fail for me, always.. But today, this time, right now... It worked.

Typing this on 8-18-2017 @ 12:13AM here in Redding, California this was 3 days ago. As patient and careful as I was. As slow and gentle as I could be - MISTAKES STILL HAPPEN. Nobody is perfect. This is my ThreadRipper story and I won't ever forget it thumb.gif. Its running great! I've OC'ed all cores stable at 1.25v to 3.8GHz (this is temporary I plan on leaving it stock ... for now!).

In the end it just stresses the resilience of the AMD platform and why we need to continue supporting it. Intel may still have faster CPU's for $8,000 but these little firecrackers and their motherboards are in it for the long haul. Gigabyte won a new long-term-customer.

My Hardware:
CPU: AMD ThreadRipper 1950X
Mobo: Gigabyte X399 AORUS Gaming 7
RAM: G.Skill DDR4 2400 RGB 32GB (8x4 quad channel)
GPU: Two Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB RX480's (crossfire)

EDIT: UPDATE
Today is the 10 day anniversary of my installation! I am happy to announce it's still kicking butt and overclocking great! I've tortured this CPU with PRIME95 and other software to see if any thermal changes causes adverse problems and I haven't had any. Also - the LGA socket protector CANNOT be left in when the CPU is installed because it's installed literally in the bracket the CPU needs to go inside.

I attached the image of the last pin. Look at it zoomed in. Every pin around that one was also bent (at least 6 of them).

Thread Starter 
I liked your installation story. My first thought after doing my own installation this week was, "A non-trivial number of people are going to destroy this socket."

In my case, I had inserted the cartridge into the carrier frame, removed the protector over the socket, and then went to close the carrier frame. It was when I was maybe half an inch away from fully closing the frame that I noticed, "Hmm, that doesn't look quite right. The hole in the orange cartridge barely clears screw #1. Is it not supposed to be centered?" As it turned out, the cartridge was still about an eighth of an inch from being fully inserted but at that point had presented enough resistance that it had felt fully inserted. I had to force the cartridge down to the bottom of the frame. After doing so I was nervous about powering the thing on since there isn't any way to really see that the package is aligned correctly unlike previous LGA sockets. For all I knew the cartridge could be slightly misaligned and have just mashed the entire socket full of pins when I tightened the mounting screws.

When I powered it on, the POST reporter flashed through tons and tons of codes but after 20 seconds or so I still had no video. It seemed like the POST reporter was looping through a long sequence with the same codes appearing over and over. Disappointed, I turned it off. I did happen to notice that right as I did so, my monitor went from amber power saving to green active mode--and then it stuck there. Had the system truly given it a video signal at the last moment? Had the monitor just kicked on when the system turned off due to a power saving detection glitch? That would be plausible since voltages on the cable could have fluctuated when powering down. I've certainly seen it before on old monitors like the one I was using when using old display methods like I was--usually VGA, though I was using DVI. I tried again. After about 5-10 seconds, the monitor kicked on and the system was happily going through POST.

I wasn't thrilled with the TR4 socket installation experience.

On a side note: Your story I think illustrates why the installation video from MSI that I watched showed them inserting the processor cartridge before removing the socket pin cover. I don't remember if I did it in that order or not, but knowing what I do now and having read your own story I would strongly advise anyone to do the installation in that order.

that's it.
My build story is easy, all things arrived stripped the Baymax asus and 1800x out.
installed the cpu to the board(and i have to say it is the easiest cpu i have ever done.
3 2 1 pop pull levers pop up and pop out cartridge
place threadripper cartridge in push in till click lower down and push gently till clicks.
turn screw one till it bites.
push and turn screw 2 till it bites push turn screw 3 till it bites

torque screw one torque screw 2 torque screw 3.

big blob on Z throw the cooler on and tighten in pattern make sure it is as even as you can.


throw the rest of the gear in fire it up
first boot straight into bios.
set fans up set ram to xmp/doscp

reboot
windows download and setup drivers and download latest bios
reboot to bios flash bios reboot reset up ram and fans.

enjoy smile.gif

some pics.











some 3dmark and vega results with comparisons and some rough power and temp readings for the vega.
