Now of course a person could consider such a configuration a niche market item, but some of us do want Enthusiast Hardware and will continue to buy it. The suppliers should not offer something that is not refined and/or finished... But that is another story....
Agree with all of this. It's time for the XL-ATX format to come back. E-ATX is too small for these new HEDT builds.

Thanks! It looks better in person actually. Hard to photograph. I have a push-pull 480mm radiator running at the top and another push-pull 360mm at the bottom, dual-bay reservoir and two DDC 3.25s in series. I like to use quick-disconnects as well since they let me change out hardware or service the loop much easier. At some point I'll need to reverse the flow of the loop to stop the intake and outlet piping of the reservoir/pumps from crossing each other just to improve aesthetics, but for now it's good enough.

Couldn't agree more, and yes very nice setup!

I have just moved to a ZEA from my woefull experince with the ZE.

Agree that it feels like a finished product.Only downside is the GPU spacing. My 2 ASUS Dual 2080ti cards sit very close to each other. There is only a couple of mm gap between the 2 cards and the one closest to the CPU runs 10-15 degrees C hotter under load as a result of the reduced airflow. Waiting for my NVlink bridge to see what the impact is on running together.

AIDA64 doesn't support monitoring all the FANs yet but AIDA support have advised that they will include the ZEA in the next beta.

64GB of G.Skill Trident Z RGB F4-3200C16D-32GTZRX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 AMD @ 3200 XMP works fine on ZEA.

128GB @ 3200 will not boot. Get all sorts of strange errors. Windows goes into recovery mode. Even got a check CPU error.

Back to 2133Mhz stock speed and boots as normal. Looks like I have to choose between 128G of stock or 64G of 3200. )

Please let me know how that works for you. The ZEA shouldn't have any problems with the RAM, But I want to know if you have problems after putting on that 3-Slot NVLink bridge. Still afraid to try again on this board, I was actually waiting till my ZE came back due to the PCIE spacing...

Running the cards in NVLink means they both run hotter and the temps were sitting around 70 degrees on the card with the most restricted airflow. Unless I want to run my Front intake fans at 100% all the time I don't think enough airflow can get between the cards.

Testing on some games and there still seems to be issues with NVLink / SLI so I have decided to go back to single GPU setup for now. Not worth the hassle.

Yes, I am doing the same. The NVLink problems and temps are obviously too high. I hope my ZE comes back fixed. I even built in two 120 MM Fans on the case side panel, and push or pull, little to no difference whatsover. They are just too close together on this board...

I think the only thing you could do if you really needed SLI was to get the thinner cards like the Turbo cards but then they might not be as efficient in getting the heat off the chip itself.

Anyone tried the new 1701 BIOS update yet?

There are two major products that came out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
