TheHorse Is your Vega 64 a reference card? The cooler is pretty crappy on them but it's definitely more than adequate, especially if you're smart about undervolting. A bit of memory overclocking is said to be way more profitable than core overclocking, as well.

If it's not a reference card you should have no problems.

Using an AIO should be fine on the 2700x. A 240mm rad one would be much better but the thick 120 should be good enough.

Simmons572 Looks like this isn't the right section for this post, moving you to the General Processor forums so hopefully you will get better assistance

Its been a while, new PC in build

So I have been out of the game for a while on this but think I may get back into it.

I have a new rig i have pieced together a 2700X with a Vega 64. (parts in shopping cart and about to buy).

Have there been thermal issues with the CPU or GPU? its been a few years since I have ran any folding on my PC. Its my daily usage PC and not a dedicated rig so will not be folding full time on it. But with enough parts I am getting my current PC will get set up as a secondary PC and has a GTX570 which may be running more full time folding if its worth it. got a bunch of smaller GPU's laying around still also that I can put into the machine.
