      ...for the Z170 stream @ EHW ? I am on Pacific NW time and tomorrow won't work for me re. prior appointments. Thursday or Friday at that time could work, but I do not want to be the reason you have to delay. Would EHW not have a YouTube of it ?

          Oh man a CM Stryker! Really wanted one of those back in the day when I just got into PC building, around 2013-14. Thought they looked so much cooler than my 932 (which was already hilariously overkill).

            ...yeah, I kind of lucked out on that. It's like new and was only used for a short time as we bought and used several Anetc 302s as they're smaller (now Dremel-modded with side air inlet per above), but the CM Stryker goes into a different location at my home-office anyway.

              ...Finish Line ! ...Now I'm all retro'd out for a while...

              I built up and thoroughly tested the Asus X79-E WS with a unique 4960X ES...it's very low voltage and at 4.7+ GHz, Cinebench R20 only peaks at 103W, according to HWInfo - way less than half of what the 5960X wattoholic slurps down at 4.5 GHz (mind you, with two more cores and four more threads). The whole thing sits in the aforementioned CM Stryker ('hardly used, like new old stock')

              Also, like the 5960X, using Strap 125 instead of Strap 100 makes a big difference <> almost 30k MB more memory writes / second, as well as lower vCore requirement for a given speed. For cooling, I normally do custom loops, but the H150i Pro 360mm AIO we had laying around is doing quite well and just fit @ the front of the CM Stryker case w/o dremel mods.

              This setup will be part 1080P retro-gamer, part NAS - the X79-E WS is great for both.

                That is a solid build you have there, certainly is worth it to build rigs like these out of revived parts rather than them going to waste. The other thing you can us it for is for server use. You could even run the Plex server client on that machine if home media streaming is of interest to you.

                  Thanks. I also just saw Laithan 's link above for the X79-E WS win-raid updated bios for NVME & bifurcation ...now I can plug in that 4x M.2 MSI Xpander Aero card that came with the X399 Creation and see what's what. Whether Plex, NAS or (2nd) retro gamer with EVGA Classies, this combo offers a lot of versatility.

                            ...using the long weekend here to rewire and expand the CAT7 based network in my home office to accommodate the 'new old - old new' HWbot machines referenced in this thread.

                            That includes the additional update (Z170 SOC Force / 6700K ES) linked in the post directly above. In turn, it freed up two nice non-RGB 120mm fans to 'fix' the look (486 ) on the RvE / 5960X revitalized setup - which is now the daily driver / beast of burden for lower-rez (1080p) and sits right next to me...was hard to ignore the previous RGB 'show & clash'

                            Before...




                            After...

                              Let it be known that men who know how to properly cool their vrm/memory/chipset using the above method will increase their dating potential by approximately 60000%

                              I've been using this method myself (also using black chassis + white fan blades, you sly devil) for a while now, had to start deadbolting my computer room to keep the crazed idols away.


                              looks really nice :P
