You tried following my shitty Linux guide by any chance?

Also, what's your secret to being able to jizz thermal paste?

Oh hey, almost forgot about this thread. Were you able to verify the bus usage thing?

This project was put on hold for several months as of my motorcycle accident in July, and missing a bunch of work.  I will continue running the Rainbow Ryzen system in the meantime.  I am looking to restart this wall-mounted build for the December competition.

Due to the Red vs. Blue war going on, things have changed.  For one, I am planning on switching to a Threadripper 1950X system with seven GTX 1080s.  It will still use the 3M risers which work great.  I'm still not well versed on Threadripper just yet, so let me know if there's anything important I need to know about it  Twilightsmile Heart

oh wow, threadripper? Uh... maybe make sure the heat sink you get for the threadripper covers the whole die. There have been at least a couple heatsinks advertised as coming out soon that will do it. 4 channel memory so get 4 memory sticks... If I recall, the typical motherboard is broken down into 16x 16x 8x 8x PCIe 3.0.. so plan your GPU allowance based on this.

Standard asutek AIOs are acceptable, if not amazing. There's a reason they included the bracket in the box. There is about a 15c difference in using a full plated design, though. So if overclocking...yeah.

Yeah, I was definitely concerned about die coverage with water cooling.  I will be going the AIO route as usual, but going bigger with a 360mm radiator if possible.  I'm not sure a 240mm will handle the 180w TDP well enough.  

Hopefully there are plenty of options when the time comes.   Twilightsmile  

However, with the wall mounted system, I may try a custom loop just for the Threadripper, leaving the GPUs air cooled.

I'd wait a bit more. Probably not supposed to be saying this, but Ryzen stuff is about to get a lot cheaper if our suppliers are right. Theres....problems with something kind of important for a specific market that it targeted and they are seeing tons of returns.

Is this the linux/BSD/others issue (GCC segfault and some other stuff) that was claimed to be fixed?

It also involves memory, but that's not exactly issue I was told about.
