Currently PCIE 4.0 is not available with the T1 and you will have to source it yourself until @Wahaha360 says otherwise.

Personally based on what I have read from reliable testers, pcie 4.0 only makes a big difference with ssd storage and not much when it comes with GPU.

There are many posts on here where I have posted links to sources of information who have performed reliable testing.

I would wait til reviewers and people like pudget systems get their hands on the cards to see if its worth buying because marketing material can be made to look like it's better. Do not believe a MANUFACTURER'S own numbers. Wait for INDEPENDENT testing.

From past launches, AMD drivers will not be as good. It will be smart to wait a few months for them to mature. I have learned over the last 10+ yrs it's not worth being an early adopter.
Thanks for the prompt response.

I was less asking due to bandwidth and more due to the concern that Smart Access Memory may need 4.0 to function, since it's limited to Zen 3 and 500-series motherboards. Without it, performance with the new AMD cards may not be what it could be.

But you're right, it may not have the impact AMD advertised either - I guess we'll see once all the benchmarks come out soon enough.

Thanks again.

Personally I don't give a damn about new stuff until there is independent testing out there. I've learned not to trust the companies who make the stuff no matter what it is.

Since I've ordered my case I guess it's time to start ordering part huh.

I know the h100i fits in 3slot mode but.... which h100i? There are several.

Alternatively, where does the lt240 come into stock for americans? And roughly how frequently?

Thanks!
overclockers.uk shipping isnt terrible. directly from alphacool is like 50 made up currency units whereas overclockers is only 20 made up currency units. Might just bite the bullet and get the 240.

To those of you with a Corsair Hydro Series H100i RGB:

Which motherboard and RAM do you use and are there any concerns regarding routing?
Would love to get Crucial Ballistix instead of Corsair Vengeance LPX, if possible.

Crucial Ballistix isn't much taller than LPX, you should have no problems no matter the motherboard.

But to answer the first part of your question: my build uses the Asus B450-i and Corsair LPX

Hi, first of all I want to apologize if I bother you people with this.

Earlier this year I bought supplies to make custom cables and sell them to the Formd T1 community to get my own case, but the shipping prices skyrocket due covid and I didn't find the selling price to skyrocket any more, so I decided to wait for better times. Anyway, right now I find myself wanting to create a cable set for my non-existent build and I wanted to ask for help with the cable lengths. If everything goes well, I would like to have a build similar to the one in the picture below, so if any of you have a build similar to this one with custom cables, I would appreciate very much your help with the measurements. Thanks in advance and here is the picture.

I have the same problem with my riser as described here:


Is this a problem with my batch or was it always like this?

How did you folks deal with this?
Remove the black tape on the PCIe Riser, it will make the cable bend easier, and that should solve the problem.

random question. does anyone know who posted the builds with the ddc in front of the mobo in 2-slot mode (and if the people who own these builds are reading this can you send me the pictures)? I remember specifically seeing two different builds and, since I had a different plan in my mind, never bookmarked them for later. I have my case and everything, just planning my loop and wanted some more reference shots.

Here's a comment on reddit that mentions the length the OP ordered for their custom cables. Standard orientation PSU (not flipped), because when you get custom length cables, you don't really need to flip the PSU.

I'm upgrading to a 3070 which needs 3 slot, but I'm in 2-slot mode rn.
Will any of my other parts be affected if I switch to 3 slot?

Depends on the parts you're using. RAM height, CPU Block/Cooler Height, egneral clearance on that side of the case will be reduced.

Sanity check please! Ordering some custom cables, want to make sure i'm getting the right ones.

1 24pin - https://www.pslatecustoms.com/colle...formd-t1-24-pin-paracord-custom-sleeved-cable
1 8 (4+4) pin CPU - https://www.pslatecustoms.com/colle...4-4-pin-cpu-eps-paracord-custom-sleeved-cable
however many 8 (6+2) pin cables my card needs - https://www.pslatecustoms.com/colle...-8-6-2-pin-pcie-paracord-custom-sleeved-cable

I'm using an m.2 drive so I DON'T need a sata cable right - https://www.pslatecustoms.com/colle...d-t1-sata-power-paracord-custom-sleeved-cable

Also, what is a sense wire? Do I need/want it on my 24pin?

This should be all the cables i need right?
