    S4MAX: Brickless S4M w/ 3090 FE and R9 5950x - 800W, 5l, water cooled

    Yeah... it's that time of the year... thinking intel though... and looking at this and that, 800w appears to be a feasible envelope! Just looks like FEs would not have made it to Europe as of yet... virtually unobtainable...

    S4MAX: Brickless S4M w/ 3090 FE and R9 5950x - 800W, 5l, water cooled

    Just came across your build - nice one! Did you get any thermal shutdowns with the A4x20?

    Log Walrus mk02: a 3D-printed brickless ~4L case with external radiator

    Wow - just came across this through your signature - very nice one! Where in the PSU did you place the temperature sensor? Looks like you got onto the Aquacomputer way before me!

    Update #2: The Summer '22 edition of my ventilation layout! As many here note, cooling the Supermicro PSU is a challenge in it's own right - and who would have ever thought that cooling PSUs would become an ongoing issue? So, after having moved from a super-silent tiny Noctua 40mm whisper fan...

    S4MAX: Brickless S4M w/ 3090 FE and R9 5950x - 800W, 5l, water cooled

    No worries - problem already solved 🥳 Just need to get to posting an update! And as a little teaser: All key components including the PSU stay the same (no reason to undo any mods…)- and it involves cramming more stuff into the very same enclosure, so it shouldn’t disappoint!

    S4MAX: Brickless S4M w/ 3090 FE and R9 5950x - 800W, 5l, water cooled

    Yeah, that's another option - it's what I have used at earlier stage with the 600W PSU. Whilst, on paper, only slightly more performant than the 4010, that may already be enough to make a difference!

    S4MAX: Brickless S4M w/ 3090 FE and R9 5950x - 800W, 5l, water cooled

    Thanks! Re the CPU: After a ton of SOC voltage and some ram timing tweaks I got it to play nicely. From what I read, the issue seems to be relating to some (large) batches not liking AMD's own PBO or high frequency XMP profiles - and AMD is actually RMAing those, and apparently has a more...
