Plan is to use a GPU (3080 FE) plus the capture card (El Gato 60).
So I have this case with an RTX 3080 and a 5950x, as well as a Scythe Shuriken 2 cooler. The 5950x seems to get hot quite quickly, causing the fans to work overtime. For instance, it usually exceeds 80 or 85 under minimal load (3 or 4 logical processors worth out of 32), and it readily exceeds 90 and starts throttling under half or full load. Even with the maximum processor state set to 80%, the fans are quite loud if anything moderately involved is happening (e.g. a video call inside a VM). Does anyone have any tips to mitigate this?
Quick question, what's the length for the pcie extension cable? I want to switch mine to a pcie gen 4 so I don't have to keep taking the mb out to update bios.
