I noticed from your earlier post that you're running a de-lidded 7980XE - which is exactly what I'm proposing to use. I'm very interested in understanding your impressions of the board when pushed a little bit...
I am intending to purchase a pre-binned (graded) 7980XE guaranteed to 4.6GHz (but then run it slower, at the 4.2-4.4 range, along with 64Gb RAM and a pair of water-cooled 2080Ti's. I'm therefore very interested to learn what you're using for RAM, what you've got it clocked at, what sort of temperatures you're seeing.
Really appreciate your help with this - it's a scary amount of money to spend, so having an insight like this could literally help me about a multi-thousand big mistake...
OK, here's a 7980XE @4.6 doing an X.265 run. It has some AVX (didn't realize that until it was running) so some cores were't at 4.6. Takes a few minutes to do a 4X overkill, max VRM Temp 44C. I ran OCCT large/med and Linpack, got it up to 50C. Max CPU temps along the right side, VRM is TF_VRM along the lower left.
I'm not having any temp issues with this system, I've posted more thoughts about it in the Intel Mobo section - where most of the discussion is. I had a heck of a time over weeks getting my Rampage V Extreme/5960X running anywhere near as well as this system after just a couple of evenings.
CPU, DRAM, everything is just running great, I don't think I've had a build this painless since the Ivy Bridge days.
Edit: Added some other shots
Edit: Did an 8X overkill X.265 run, takes twice as long as 4X. VRM got up to 52C.
You can see my fan speeds in the bottom right. The highest RPM CHA Fan3 is actually the pumps. There are no fans connected to the Pump headers, CPU is the rear case fan, CPU OPT is the 420 rad fans, and what SIV64 calls Pump 1 is the gangs of 120mm fans.
