If you're willing to go an itx GPU, you should be able to water cool a 3900x in the 2.0. I don't think it will cool properly with just an air cooler though as I'm struggling with a 3700x in a Dan A4 at the moment (fine for gaming but need to reduce PPT by 8-10W in benchmarks)Does anybody tried to build ryzen 3900x in sentry 2.0 or 1.1? Is it possible? I want to build compact workstation as powerful as it possible.
Im not entirely sure if the c7 will fit. it should, but the am4 mounting will force you to mount the cooler in a way that makes the finstack face the ram sticks on the right and the vrm heatsink on the right, severely hindering airflow. maybe thats what the review refers to?Has anyone tried the new ROG Strix X570-I motherboard with any of the Cryorig C7 coolers? One of the reviews on Newegg states that the heat sinks on the board interfere with a Cryorig C7 Cu making it impossible to mount correctly. PC Part Picker states no compatibility issues between these parts. Can anyone verify either way?
It should fit no problem.Hi, will I be able to fit ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 into sentry? I'm currently in the process of getting the parts for december build in sentry 2.0 and I don't want to fail it. Thanks.
Thanks! I considered Gigabyte one as an alternative for ASRock despite all the talking about raw bios. As far as I can understand it was updated to a more recent version in the early november.It should fit no problem.
However I wouldn't recommend getting the board unless you absolutely need thunderbolt. I had the board and the bios was horrible, ram from their qvl didnt run with xmp, generally ram overclocking was really bad and my 3800x ran significantly hotter than on my new x570i aorus from gigabyte (the cryorig c7g with noctua fan couldnt keep the 3800x under control even in eco mode). I had 2 of the AsRock boards because on the first one the fan failed. The gigabyte board is the only one that works with the black ridge cooler as well so thats a nice plus as well.
what exactly do you mean with raw bios? what I can say is that the gigabyte bios is significantly better than the asrock bios.Thanks!
