The GTZR version of the G.Skill is specifically for the TR4 platform though. Hence I'd look at that first. They are all B-Die too from what I saw. Not cheap though $2555 AUD
Ya I am not going to spend $1,600+ USD on memory. I just ordered the corsair for about $340 usd and will add my existing 64gb once its all tested out.

If you can tell me some reasons why I should get this kit over just doing what I said would be grateful. Also keep in mind I have no plan to go bleeding edge OC. I want stability more than anything but I still want to OC the 2990wx to at least 3.8ghz.

It is very doubtful that you will be able to run 8 sticks or RAM at more than 2666MHz or maybe if you are lucky 2933MHz, so If you already have half the ram just get the other half. No need to pay a small fortune for whole 8 sticks. Just make sure that ASUS have validated those sticks it that configuration for your board. Check QVL.

I'm sure the deals are better in USD

I heard the watercool heatkilling iv CPU block in the best right now? I would prefer to stick to all one brand if possible and do rgb aura.
Found a open item one on amazon, going to give it a try.

Now I just need to nail down the cooling options. Ekwb monoblock or ekwb cpu block and vrm block from watercooled or watercooled heatkiller cpu block and vrm block from watercooled.

Also want 128gb coirsair rgb memory, any suggestions on which model?

But I hear that mono blocks aren't the best for performance because its possible for the waterblock not to get full 100% contact.

I rarely hear the fan or see it turn on. This was a run last night, room ambient ~25C at beginning, ~24C at end.



Older UEFI P95 v28.10b1 run, 8K 4096K 27GB, room ambient ~25.5C 24.8C 23.6C, I reckon first reading at start, next one at some point in run and last at end.



VRM fan did not even come on, UEFI allows you to set a profile for it as well, I will soon test with OC CPU, still not gonna be the kinda load you'd be using though with a 2990WX. Looking at HUB data it would seem even the original ZE is very capable.



I have created a separate ZEA thread. OP has by build info, as far as I'm concerned it's low airflow setup.

ZAE users don't even have an option for a VRM waterblock.
