That's exactly the vibe I've been getting from some of the reviewers and extreme overclockers who have been playing with these chips. I believe Der8aur said something to the effect of "don't expect much OC performance from a board without 2 8-pins" and assumedly the more robust VRM heatsinks that usually come on those boards. He mentioned the 12v lines from the PSU were uncomfortably hot with a single 8-pin while overclocking a 7900X. I'm very curious to see how boards handle the higher power requirements and heat output of the 12-18 core models. Perhaps we'll be looking at a hard power delivery wall on those chips and much lower clocks accordingly.

Yeah, the VRM heatsinks look like decorations instead of anything useful.

You aren't lying about that. It's like mobo designers forgot fins where there for a reason.

We all like nice looking things, but, not at the total expense of function.

would you be in a position to advise on a motherboard for a 7820x?

I'm looking at getting one from you, 5ghz binned (higher if possible!) but I'm not sure what board to get.

from the ones you've used, would the msi carbon, m7, asus strix be capable of handling a 7820x at 5ghz?

It might help with a fan behind the socket as some of the heat from the PCB would transfer to the CPU.

You can't bin cpu's all rigged up and then expect customers to run their rigs all ghetto. Think about it man. wink.gif

This is why I decided to spend a little more and go with the Aurus gaming 7 model with the dual 8 pins. Plus Newegg Business had a $50 off coupon promo that made it a little more enticing.

Reminds me of when I had to zip tie the AIO cooler and fan to my Radeon r9 290 - looked like crap but it ran cool!

We've all been there. There have been many times in the past my rig looked Frankenstein as hell.

Hmm...The Frankenstein rig...lets start a new trend so manufacturers can charge more for it.
