    120mm AIO for 3700x

    I use a Arctic 120 on a 2700 with good results. Pretty quiet too. https://www2.arctic.ac/liquidfreezer2/us/

    My 1620-0 is about to get relegated to backup, really a great CPU but I'm giving a R7 2700 a try since they more or less are giving them away. Building a 8c/16t Mini ITX system for peanuts...

    Nice. Heading strongly in to the 9400F direction. When I get some downtime I'll build a MiniITX based on that.

    I thought about the 9400 and the IGPU option but like many others here I have a drawer full of older gpu's.....

    I really don't need a ton of cores/threads, just some more speed at this stage. 6/6 should last me for a while @4ghz+ speeds.

    My 1620-0 is starting to show its age lately, in games of course. Still a stellar photoshop/lightroom CPU. I'm contemplating a simple i5-9400f microATX build, I have a RTX2070 and a 1080p and a 4k monitor. Having a hard time justifying a modern Xeon build for my purposes. This thing has been...

    Any specific reason for using a driver from 2018?

    With 90F + days here in PA my Dell T3600 with the 1620-0 has had it's temps go up quite a bit as well. I'm the type of person who prefers a good ceiling fan and open windows over AC but I do turn on the AC if I'm about to do something CPU/GPU intensive for a while.

    So with all the new CPU's just released...I still don't feel a particularly strong need to move on from my 1620-0. Sure things are faster and "better", but not really for what I'm doing anyhow. I have as of late been very tempted by Zotac's mini Xeon workstation tho, If only I could get one...

    Dell Workstation Owners Club

    T3600, Xeon 1620-0, 32Gb Ram, RTX2070, Bunch o drives. :) Used as a Adobe CS machine for mostly Photography work. Can game a bit at 4k with a 32" LG monitor as well. Case fans replaced with BeQuiet and the CPU fan with Noctua. I keep saying I'm going to upgrade but here it still sits...Keeping...

    Id like to stay with Xeons, always had a Workstation with them. Mac and PC. For Adobe products mostly. Photography work. But I know I would be just fine even with a i5-9400 these days. Motherboards seems to be the main limitation.

    Thanks :) I wasn't specific enough tho, I would leave the whole platform and shop for a new Mobo as well. Basically I'd like a new Xeon setup from scratch.

    Question for you all: When the time comes to upgrade my 1620-0 equipped Dell T-3600, what should I look at if I wanted to stay with Xeons? I realize that for my use (Adobe and DXO Photo Editing, some gaming with a RTX2070 in 4k) probably the easiest thing would be some form of Ryzen but Id'...

    Best card for USD 1,500

    Autodesk's official stance is that Quadro cards are certified for this application. I would head that way.

    NVIDIA Unveils GeForce 430.64 WHQL Drivers

    Hilarious that the 2070 is so close to the VII. The card (RTX2070) the internet loves to hate is not a bad deal under $500. Wonder why some have issues while some don't? Hardware I guess. My PNY RTX2070 OC has had no driver related problems at all. I do try all the new ones but run the...

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    Hoping for #1 Would be nice for AMD to finally shake the "Hot, Loud and Slow" image. True or false, public perceptions matter.

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    No one cares about AMD's staff restructuring etc. Except market analysts and investors. Gamers don't give a damn about that. Corporate Heroics don't impact in game FPS. 7nm means nothing unless it's cheaper and faster. Equal won't be good enough. AMD's market share for GPU's is abysmal atm and...

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    nV's level of embarrassment becomes less every day that goes by with no sign of competition. RTX2070 has been out since October. With RT and DLSS. If anything if AMD doesn't have a clear rival out by the end of summer for $350 the embarrassment will be all theirs. The RTX2070 is current...

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    Am I the only one that thinks that AMD producing a RTX2070 competitor for $330 a year after the RTX2070 launched is really not all that remarkable? And without RTX and DLSS as well. I know some ppl dont care about that but there it is all the same.

    So what is a better selling point, Ability to undervolt or no need to undervolt?
