    It would be a pretty nice upgrade, but I'm probably going to stick with it for now.
    Next upgrade will probably be swapping out the Vegas for two more Radeon VIIs. If I go that route I might need to swap out one of my PSUs. Currently running a 1300W and a 1000W, and if I OC everything it gets pretty close to maxed out.
    I am personally sticking with the 2990WX as it suffices for me on the workloads and gaming. Upgrading for me would just be to spend money for no real gain. Any reason you are running two PSU's or was it case you had two already and it is cheaper than buying a single super PSU ? Upgrading those Vegas would likely give you a nice boost. How is CF working out for you ? SLI as we know is hit and miss with support. My 2080Tis constantly beg for a proper spanking by a game with proper SLI support haha.

        With 4 OC'd GPUs and the Threadripper OC'd to 4075 it can pull over 2000W. Even running everything with lower power limits, it can still hover around 1600W. I've never been comfortable running a PSU 24/7 right at the rated max output, especially on consumer boards where you don't have the ability to easily run multiple redundant PSUs. Running a pair of PSUs is even easier now since my current case (PC-O11 Dynamic) is built to house two PSUs. I haven't dome much gaming in CF since I was running a pair of 7970s, but all the games I play now run just fine for me on either a single vega64 or the VII.

        Back on topic. A bit of a Frankenstein bench rig, with a 980 KPE and a 7990, running on a Prime X370-Pro with an R7-1700.

          Ohh that is fair enough, I did not realize you were running 4x GPU's in that rig. It all makes sense now. I would do the same if I were in your shoes. That is a power hungry combo for sure though. While it is obvious 4xGPU's can pull a fair whack, the Threadrippers alone when OC'ed certainly can pull some watts when under load. Liking the bench rig btw. Aren't all bench rigs a little bit Frankenstein though

            I usually run the 2970 at 3.9, since it really eats power/volts when I bump it up over 3.9. I keep three GPUs under water and leave the 4th slot free for testing GPUs, nics, or HBAs.

              It is a fact that running a TR OC without WC is certainly not advisable. Without WC there is no way I could sustain a 4.1Ghz All core OC.
