What's up guys.
Figured since I haven't joined an owners club in a while, the Threadripper club would be the one to join up with since this product is huge in every way.
I'll let some photos do the talking but I also have some info to hand out.
As my system currently sits, I was able to achieve a stable overclock on my 1920X at 4.1ghz at 1.33v.
On the Asus Zenith Extreme, I set the CPU power delivery settings from Standard, to Optimized, also with a 110% power rating for VRM and CPU.
This occasionally bumps the 1.33v to 1.35v, to which I've seen it occasionally bump up to during burn in tests. It's actually the voltage it was at in the screenshot I took.
For cooling, I normally run a full custom loop for most systems I build for myself, reviews, and other people. But with the lack of waterblocks available to the market, I had to resort to making what I had, work.
I had a Corsair H110i GT with a dead pump sitting around and I figured I could rip it apart and build it into my custom loop. Unfortunately the impeller within the AIO head is also the seal, so it literally cut my flow in half, but with two D5 pumps, it's still more than sufficient.
Being that the H110i GT head isn't an Asetek style mount, I had to improvise. With info I gathered from Tom's Hardware, I found out that the cooler mounting threads on the TR bracket are M3.5. A very strange thread size and one you can't normally find at a hardware store. Luckily, the RC car manufacturer HPI has a screw set that is perfect for this situation.
Utilizing some corner braces that I got at Home Depot, I was able to use those by cutting them at the corner, and using the flat parts of the brace as a bridge from the AIO bracket, to the TR bracket.
The mount is perfect, and so is the thermal paste spread over the IHS. I would even go as far as saying it's better than the current Asetek round style paste spread.
Factoring in the +27c offset, under full load with 4.1ghz at 1.33-1.35v, temps sit at around 45c.
Absolutely fantastic. The 1920X is a beast and in my opinion, the best bang for your buck out of the three SKUs.
Okay! Now it is photo dump time.
(then I got my actual camera out)
If you guys have any questions, let me know and I'll be happy to answer them as best I can.
