[update] How the rig looks currently. Rerouting the loop to CPU only was super easy, the PCIe power cable routing is a bit eh but it works, and I can fix that once I get a new GPU with the 8 pin(s) in the right spot instead of the middle of the card.
[old] Front View, tried to route the EK-ZMT tubing as cleanly as possible.
[old] Rear View, actually took the time to get all the cables out of the way of the rear panel (that I still haven't installed because I lost track of a few of the thumb screws lol).
[old] During leak testing! Always nerve-wracking, not due to any doubts with ZMT, but I tend to get distracted easily and forget things :o
[old] Random shot because I was messing around.
X99 Main Rig - Updated
Refresh of my main X99 rig. Not much has changed, other than yeeting the Radeon VII I had due to constant driver issues. Loop has moved to CPU only, 1660 Ti is subbed in for now, until I have the budget for a better GPU. Also currently in the process of getting a 6950X, because a friend has one for a good price, and it's the best OCable chip on this platform. - 6950X obtained, see update
Color(s): Black Gray Silver
RGB Lighting? No
Cooling: Custom Liquid Cooling
Type: General Build
6950X obtained, will do 4.4 CB20 stable but doesn't like heavier tests like Realbench or Prime95. Currently running 4.2/3.5 1.24v/1.2v core/uncore, passes Prime95 with a max temp of 80C. Pulls the exact same single core my 5960X did at 4.7/3.5, but for some reason it runs Destiny 2 (main game I play) noticeably better. I do know that game can scale across multiple threads (up to 20 IIRC), but it never maxed out my 5960X, so I don't actually know the reason for the perf increase. Chip is surprisingly docile compared to my Haswell-E lad though, cooler at the same voltages while packing 2c/4t more CPU.
Look of the rig didn't change other than adding in my 4x4GB EVGA SSC DIMMs, so not really worth update pics.
