Got to say I am even More keen to get my hands on one and on my delided i9-7980xe using Lm, will be testing soon as I get it,
I didn’t see any problems ordering but now I read they are possibly having delays to eu, I’m in the UK so hoping won’t have a problem, after all I got used to waiting, or should I say I’ve come to expect it for the release of every component in this rig.
Hope optimus arrives soon.
Hi,
Might actually go for the signature it's showing it shines Jp using it he's posted lots of tests using foundation and signature or at least a demo of it actually looks like a foundation demo just solid top instead of plexi :/
Pick it up from here not as long as this thread by any means

Hey guys, to clear up Signature vs foundation:

-Signature will have 2-3c better performance over Foundation in XOC scenarios. In everyday usage, the performance is very similar.
-All our blocks use the same cold plate, including the upcoming GPU. (Though threadripper will use the XL version of our cold plate)
-The Signature performs better because there is zero flex in the block, not necessarily because it acts as a heatsink. It's possible some extra heat is wicked away by the block, but the real performance has to do with the precision of the compression of the CPU to the cold plate.
-The profile of the Signature internals and structure is different and tailored specifically for the latest "tall" consumer and HEDT Intel CPUs. While the Foundation is slightly different for more general performance.
-The latest gen of CPUs are weird, results can vary quite a bit depending on tim spread, tightening, etc (as JPM found).
-So not super surprising to see strange individual core counts on 18 core CPU. There are so, so, so many variables in XOC situations, especially with latest CPUs.

then I got stuck trying to wrap my mind around how its still possible for Philips to have a stranglehold on the high end RGB market -.-

that's awesome! I knew a cameraless solution had to exist, also hello door into arduino world. Those Hue rip off $70 USB device + LED strip + camera bundles on amazon look sketch af.

arduino complete starter kit, 1x strip, etc ordered. (they made me do math, by only listing distance between LEDs & # of LEDs, but not actual length)

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

It’s got some weight to it. I’ll see if I can weigh it out against the HK IV pro.

Kitchen scale. Might not be down to a scientific troy ounce but close enough. Honestly when the propaganda said the top is milled from a 3 lb block of solid brass I was expecting a bit more than what it is. Its beefy for sure but far from atrocious. Id say they milled away 80% of that 3 lbs. Ive had some old school all solid copper blocks that have weighed more.

Or I can run to downtown Newark and find a DD, I'm sure they have scales. Might get my azz shot but atleast Ill know how much these blocks weigh down the the precise gram.

Yeah that Hue crap is just that, crap. That was the very first thing I tried and it wasnt connected for 24 hours. Want one? Send me your address LOL. Thats if it didnt make it into the crapper. Some items I save for my wall of shame to remind me of paths to never go down again. 3 of them are EK mono blocks. First one for the M8E board that when installed bent the corners up on my brand new 7700K. I was able to salvage it with just setting it on a flat surface and weights on the corners and leave it sit for a week. That was an engineering blunder on their part as Id doubt Intel screwed anything up THAT bad. EK Support "You over tightened the screws"! There is no way to blunder the installation. Set height on the posts, goes through board and If anything I was worried about it being too loose as its posts to motherboard PCB then screws to the PCB on the other side. If I over tightened it would have cracked the PCB. I could add a few more, they are all EK with only a few old school Koolance that the corrosion was so bad that barbs could not be removed from fittings. The corrosion welded that crap together. Last time I touched anything Koolance.

Hey Optimus,

Just a random question but where does your stuff ship from? Does it ship out of Chicago?
