Threadripper build! (in an S340 Elite)

Hey all. One of my buddies decided to jump on the Threadripper train and it came out awesome. The sheer power that CPU has is insane for multi-threaded tasks and multi-tasking in general. With an RX480, he streams PUBG with OBS on the SLOW cpu preset at 6000kbps. SLOW preset is insane for a single CPU gaming/streaming rig! And the resulting stream looks GREAT, and the game runs pretty damn good too. 

We did a video on it if any of y'all want to check it out

  • Great build. Yeah the front panel of those S340 cases is janky to remove, I ruined one  of the clips on my old one. My nephew has it now and wants a glass case, do they sell the side panels I wonder and would they fit the regular S340's?

    What are the temps like with that kraken x62? I have the x61 and it's been flawless with my 4790k. What's the difference between the x61 and x62?

    Good video/audio but I noticed the audio went to only the left channel briefly when you unboxed the case. No big deal just thought I'd mention it :)

  • They don't sell the side panels. and aren't backwards compatible. But if you contact NZXT you can try and buy one. There customer support is pretty good.

    Thanks for the props. Im not sure why the mic would have done that, its just a shotgun mic. Thanks for the heads up!
    The x62 is just a newer gen (gen "4.5" i think) asetek pump vs yours which is probably x61. Probably not a whole lot of difference in terms of performance but on this threadripper it kicks butt actually, despite the whole IHS coverage issue. My buddy got it up to 4.1ghz and his temps are fine, 65c under load i think. Yeah what Leafflat said. The mounting method is different between the cases so you can't just swap the side panel to a tempered glass one.

    A quick benchmark vid followup
