I have had a black one in my cart for a few weeks now but haven't pulled the trigger. Looking forward to seeing the build. What's your plan for rads?

I'm not normally a watercooling guy,so I have not considered past the point that "I *might* need to watercool a 160W server chip.
If I did watercooling it would be cpu only.

With the cost of this case however , basically everything will be new and top of the line , and modded to perfection...(with the white and all)

....I forsee a lot of cable sleeving, and nitpicking.

I have a nice white case.
I have not even decided cable color/lighting/esoterics....

Right now I'm looking at an I9 7920x , when they hit....but I was also looking at Xeons.

This project is in the germination stage.

I'm looking at 'forest' green/copper/white..
I'm considering some airbrush trees in fact.

Yep , I'm still leaning towards I9 , doubt I'll go more than 12 core.

edit : My case is actually being built now , I can't wait to see it !

My initial response would be :
"Because I want the best" not middle of the road.
Now , I might be wrong , but I'm pretty sure a 2x Xeon 6144 will ******* destroy the 16 core TR.Hard to say, it's not out yet.

:rofl:

In reality , It's an issue of future proofing.
Intel's socket p (3647) is setup for a while.....If I spend the cash now , this rig will be good for many years.....I don't see the same development from the TR at the moment.

I'm certainly not saying no to AMD , I've owned many of their CPU's , but as it sits , I'm ordering that MOBO next week.

edit :
My case shipped today !! Woop !!

I picked up my new case today.

Pure artwork.

I will only offer this one pic right now.
It's the front piece of my new caselabs case , sitting beside my current Lian-Li pc-A77F.
