Hi Folks, It seems I have managed to persuade :grin: she who must be obeyed :razz: to be allowed to get one of the 64 core 128 threads AMD 3990X processors mainly with the idea that it will really help me with the audio and video stuff I do for our shop\business which although totally true is I think pushing it a bit. Not sure which motherboard I will be opting for just yet but I will be watercooling it .... I have been told to stay away from sub zero phase units, fridge freezers etc as it may be unhealthy for me hahahahahahha oh and that I must totally tidy up my computer room and redecorate it :eek::eek:

You claimed you can draw by repetition, and seeing that line i haven't found anything to challenge that claim... will have to look at it with a bigger machine when i have one available (financial markets currently hot due Coronavirus... :twisted:).
Parent - By Master Om (Bronze) Date 2020-02-05 12:43
Still complete the game. :twisted:

Hi Antares, Concerning Paul (National12) I have phoned, text, emailed and PMed him from this message board but to no avail .... i know he kept in touch with other board members but sadly I suspect the worst :sad: .... I believe he had no family anymore but I may be wrong ...

Paul and I got on so very well and even though he hated texting he always got back to me and then all communication stopped

Thanks for answer Tony, definitely not what i wanted to read. :sad::confused:

Hi Tony,

I'm for sure looking forward to see some first benches..!!

When it's official release date..i thought around 7th Feb.2020 if i'm right.

Wish you good luck with your new build and most with the redecorating your room :wink:

Kind regards,

Hi Tony,

I don't come on the forum anymore- but this I do look forward to! I know you intend to take this thing to the  extremity of his overclocking abilities! It's going to be an interesting project!

I'm thinking- when the fun starts, extra buttered popcorn  with Parmesan cheese as a topping, and possibly a pizza and beer on hand when you start posting your pic's!

What type of wood base for the MOBO - I'd suggest  this thing deserves at the very least  "mahogany" ! :smile:

Huge  Nitrogen tank -for cooling- timed to spray the CPU  block -at intervals? :twisted:

Best Wishes,
As Always!

Happy New Year! As Always! :grin:
Parent - By RFK (Gold) Date 2020-02-03 22:38
Happy New Year to you as well! :wink:

Phenomenal cosmic power will be at your beck and call.
Use it for good, and not for evil.

Tony already found that in Thailand,Bangkok in a  Buddhist monastery where he found an ancient text holding the secrets to the phenomenal cosmic powers over the will to conservative thinking.

Sidebar, post history conversation, went with the micro mobo that you showed concern over the way the vrm's placed. No problem! Placed fans over the memory and helped cool both memory and vrms. Went with modest 14 core. get about 33,000 kN/s  overclocked on the lowest setting 50c cpu- 70c MOS- 34c system temps!

I don't need 64 cores ...yet! I have two full towers in my living room under my desk now!

There is no end to this -NO END!

I remember my first build on Rybka Forum a core two duo! Then it went to a quad core- then to a 6 core -then to an 8 core -now a 14 core -now you and Dann come along pushing the 64 core SIXTY FOUR CORES!
You two guys have a hell of a lot of nerve coming out on this forum stress out forum enthusiasts pushing the envelope -16-32 cores I could just twitch a little when I read about it- but 64 CORES?
Rybka Forum will need a suicide hot line!

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X  is reported to run  "extremely" hot. This cpu is not for someone unwilling to go all out in designing a build that will have proper airflow and cooling - or, the big bucks to buy the top of the line computer case that affords room to build the best cooling system.

I wouldn't recommend this cpu as a starter project for a first build! AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X would be a beast without, continued monitored cooling while  running chess analysis for extended periods of time-to even consider going to a 3990X!


Members here forget that Dann is far from being a novice in the field and has expertise when it comes to builds, as does Tony!
The idea of going into a build like this by those with limited experience should do so with care-if not trepidation! Takes real research and planning to do "any build" ANY BUILD!

Okay but worth trying IMHO.
Parent - - By Antares (****) Date 2020-02-06 15:31
For something useful definitely... but not for (computer/corr-)chess, that's dead.

>but not for (computer/corr-)chess, that's dead.

Not yet....

Hi Folks, Overclocking the 3990X should not be a problem just like any other CPU although I will need a new waterblock but the rest of the WC loop will be fine .... I have been reading that you can get issues with so many cores hitting the SSDs ... Maybe some optane memory will help this but AMD I suspect will not admit to that and the problem maybe software specific.

As usual though it will be mounted on the lump of wood with no case ... also considering a new graphics card

>"lump"  of wood? 

Man, that sounds so ...strange! :lol:


I almost feel some how you've progressed!

Lump of Wood !

It reminds me of Boulder Co. Kagyu teachings of  crazy wisdom!

Now you have something to pass :wink:
