Ok! Intresting find..

I've overclocked the two 2990WX's at a very modest 3,7GHz at all cores, using only 1.125V. Could go much higher, BUT! the interesting part is that at this speed I still get 37sec at Coronabench! And after an hour of rendering temps top at 51C!! So I thing for some reason lower volts are better with corona, don't ask me why..! At this temps I can't even hear the PC's! Also while rendering with all cores the PC is still super responsive. I need to add that I've updated to win10 1903, disabled control flow guard and added coreprio.

Regards,

Konstantinos D

Hi again, my build finally arrived after 2 month of waiting (guess what, they didn't see the "4x" in the invoice and I didn't doublecheck it so I got 1 dimm of Corsair Vengeance LPX (CMK16GX4M1D3000C16) instead of 4)
In the end I had to buy Kraken x72 instead of noctuah u14s which is better but I had to order only in one company and they had no other choice but Kraken (long time to explain why). Probably will use it till noctuah 15 comes out.
Just wanted to ask the guys who use Kraken x72 with this CPU - is it worth swithing PBO on? It is probably of no use in Corona but I want to get some boost in UE4. If I understand it right PBO is safe as it has some sort of safety system to contol this type of overclocking from AMD.
The build is the following 
CPU: 2990wx
MB: Gigabyte Aorus extreme
RAM:  Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 PC3000Mhz 64GB
SSD: Samsung 500Gb 970 EVO Plus, 2280, M.2, NVMe
PSU: ATX Corsair HX1200, 80 Plus Platinum
Case: Fractal Design Meshify S2
Cooling: NZXT Kraken 72

I have 3 workstations with 2990wx and kraken x72.
Kraken x72 is too loud on 90%+ fan speed mode for me, so all experiments with PBO led to decision not to touch it until I buy custom water cooling solution, such as Juraj used in his build.

Thanks for the reply!
Got some more lamer questions.
So the main issue is noise. Were there any other problems like trottling, blue screen, etc...?
Is it stable even during long renders or other intensive tasks? (PBOed and non-PBOed)?
What time did you manage to get in corona bench? (I know it doesn't really depend on cooling but rather on non-PBO OC, RAM and nvme ssd but I'm just curious)

It's stable for long renders, and you almost all the time have 3.2-3.3GHz frequency, CPU temperature is 63-65C.
44 seconds for test(ram was set at 2400 MHz), guess there is much room for tweaking and improving the result, I just dont want to waste time on it.
The most important thing not to forget is setting right RAM 2933MHz profile in BIOS, and check RAM Voltage, set it as recommended by manufacturer.
Do not forget to install NZXT CAM application, and create fan profile to have comfortable experience with coolers.

Thanks vansan,
Nice to have some figures for estimating some approximate performance.I will follow your advice and start experimenting as soon as my RAM arrives.

Gamers Nexus did an update to their Enermax TR4 Liqtech video.....Not good.


I'm on my second Liqtech, it was replaced by Enermax when the first failed in less that a year. It was the second revision with RBG lights, but not the most recent revision which i got as an RMA. Hopefully this one will last. but for the video Im not holding out to much hope.

PS. They DID make me pay shipping to send the unit back.

The LiqTech is lost-case. Every other AIO should be avoided as well for Threadripper.

Use only U14S TR4 until NH-D15 TR4 comes. Or custom water loop. Nothing else is worth is considering. Don't try.

Last 2990WX to build for our office, scored one for 900 Euro brand new which is +/- as much as you should pay for them right now. That's the actual value with next Threadripper around corner. Can't wait for those swear 40/48/64c ? versions to come in January if rumours will come out to be true.

I can't believe how much better looking is the Asus Alpha compared to MSI MEG. The VRM is a tie, it's doublers that can utilize those two stupid fans which I might take out. But on-board Aquantia chip is big plus, though I wonder how the chip will cool itself embed on board. Those 10gbit cards with same chip I have in other workstations run extremely hot to a point where I mounted fan under them.



I wish I could buy that fake Apple cheese grater case from Dune right now, I would absolutely put this there :- D I am honestly a fan, in un-ironical way.

Hi Juraj,

Could I ask where did you get that for €900? On eBay? Could you send me a PM about that please?
