Hurts. Been trying to beat the system since the black edition popped up first....

I was lucky and landed it first round of release

I had and early invite and had it in my cart but couldn't submit because it wanted Canadian province info entered for my address as well as a state. I was on the US site and had a US address selected too.

Someone correct me if I’m wrong but dooesnt the cooling of amd reference 6000 series suffer when on its side?

ID: gvos9z8

On 1440p gaming with a manual fan curve I'm barely tickling 60-65c under full load

ID: gvqsh82

Doesn’t sound like enough heat to cook with

ID: gvrtg2h

Convert my reference 6900 to water..Temps never crest 50c. At 2700mhz. If I set Modern Warfare to 1080p render resolution I can push 400 fps. Who knew you could get CSGO fps in a modern game.

Pic for reference.

It suffers in lengthwise vertical orientations (I/O on top). This orientation is fine. If we can trust some of the posts comparing temps and orientation, it might actually be the best orientation option. Either way, as long as the long edge is parallel to the ground there isn't a severe performance impact.

I got mine in the normal way. If I could put it vertically like this I would tho. I baught the SAPPHIRE NITRO RX6800XT special edition which has RGB fans. Didn’t realize I wouldn’t even see them though unless it was vertical. Still looks like a beautiful card tho because the sapphire cards are already just very visually appealing with the mirror rgb sapphire logo and silver top. But I still run at good temps. About 75c under full load running demanding games. So I don’t think it makes much of a difference as long as you have good cooling within you’re pc. I got a micro atx case. Corsair crystal 280x. My card is one of the bigger 6800xt cards so it literally just fit the case with about a half inch between the card and front fans. I got a AIO rad and 4 other fans. 2 fans on the bottom(intake), 2 on the front(intake) and the aio rad on top (exhaust). Runs pretty cool for a smaller case with some beastly hardware. Rx6800xt and 5950x

ID: gvq2rjm

I mean it's not the best flow for those read fans, but if it is staying cool enough, it's not really a problem.

ID: gvq7zg2

No, it's more about fans not getting good airflow if you don't have room between your fans and a tempered glass side panel but if you don't have that issue then airflow is airflow.

Other than AMD.com occasional restock, is there anywhere else I can get this sexy beast on MSRP? Thank you.

ID: gvqlanb

Msrp? No

ID: gvr6d82

IIRC midnight black only sells on AMD's website

ID: gvs1wry

Are u in europe ? If so yes there is a way.

Join this group , wait for restock notification froM AMD.com and act quickly once u get the notification.

Gl.... That's how i got my 3060 ti FE at msrp , u only go for reference/FE cards if u want msrp.

What case is this?

6 : Anonymous2021/04/24 16:43 ID: gvq4ccc

I just did my first ever AMD build with a 5600x + 6800 XT. I’ve always had Intel+Nvidia. This thing rips! The midnight black is slick. Red Devil for me.

ID: gvr5cri

me too i just got an AMD build, always been intel nvidia but by god this thing is a true thread ripper.

Teach me your secrets. I have been trying for a 6800xt for 7 weeks now.

damn thats a cheap mobo for the caliber of that system

Has NZXT's software improved? I've avoided them for years because their software left much to be desired.

Came here for wrong comments about the AIO, wasn't disappointed.

Gonna have some air bubbles in your pump, but it looks cool I guess.

ID: gvrg9f3

Front mount bottom hoses and tank well above pump height

ID: gvrgdik

Oh my bad I thought the rad was on the bottom of the case. You're right.

What cpu cooler is that?

Thank you!

Also to let you know that's probably the worst way to have your aio setup. You don't want the pump at the top of a loop.

ID: gvqgypd

Radiator is on the front of the case. The top of the radiator is the highest point in the loop.

ID: gvrfzeg

Umm, you are aware the air will get trapped at the top of the rad reservoir. He mounted the rad to the front of the case. Could it be better? Yes. Is it the worse? No, they worst would have been if he mounted it to the bottom rad location.

Ok. Someone explain how tf orientation makes a difference as long as thermals have been addressed. Seriously, what the actual fuck?

ID: gvqx0ft

If the side panel is on, the GPU can‘t pull in fresh air so it suffers and temps go up, when temps go up, performance goes down.

ID: gvr13dq


However if you’ve done your homework and insured adequate airflow or are using a liquid solution, then there are no issues.

PCIe Riser

3.0 doesn't work with sam correct me if i'm wrong?

4.0 does?

ID: gvqo6p1

3.0 working perfectly fine with SAM

ID: gvqt28m

SAM works on X470 and B450, so PCIe 4.0 is not a requirement for SAM.

ID: gvquu7f

Thanks I didn't wanna spend 100$ on pci riser 4.0 just to lift my 6800xt

I have concerns about the orientation and placement of the radiator and heat block of your liquid CPU cooler...

ID: gvrka1q

It's front mounted with hoses on the bottom. Ram wouldn't allow right side hoses and couldn't reach the left

17 : Anonymous2021/04/24 16:06 ID: gvpz1uu

Right. Keep advertising non existing hardware. (눈‸눈)

18 : Anonymous2021/04/25 06:22 ID: gvskp2e

It's funny to me that people have temp monitors on their cooler. My PC is behind my monitor and I have even looked inside for over a year. lol

19 : Anonymous2021/04/24 12:13 ID: gvolclc

According to JayzTwoCents and Gamers Nexus, you may want to reconsider your AIO orientation.

ID: gvomiri

its front mounted hoses on bottom which is how they recommended to mount it if you cant top mount

ID: gvoro7o

Sorry I thought it was connected to the bottom radiator.

Physical representation of "out of stock".

The slanted Radeon logo makes the vertical mount look so much better then any nVidia vertical mount card. Your build looks sick dude!

22 : Anonymous2021/04/24 19:08 ID: gvqm8wq

That's a nice and cool system
