    I'd be tempted to grab a cheap second hand 3600 just to get things up and running unless of course you have a firm ETA on the 5950X.

    No firm date as of yet, but I’m still making custom cables and other parts so I’ve got plenty to do.

    I also have another system for my day to day so I’m not in a great rush.

    I’ve been collecting parts since late last year, just buying up bits and pieces as and when I find stock. I understand these PSUs are pretty hard to come by, not sure if Corsair discontinued them or not as really been a challenge to find.

    Messing with the ram at the moment. Have my bdie running 4000cl16 @2000. Primary are 16.16.16.39 1t. Will look to tighten the secondary timings this weekend.

    Edit. The above turned out to be not stable. Looked good after 12hr memtest and multiple hours gaming, then I played blops and had a bunch of errors.

    Scrap that :(
    I ran memtest over night without error, and gamed for a few hours. All good.
    Then played some blops, looked and had a bunch of whea errors. Went to loosen timings and drop to [email protected] and it wouldnt boot. Then reverting back to xmp 3200cl14 wouldn't post. I've got the 3200cl14 posting again and will continue again over the weekend.
    So wierd how it was so stable for 24hrs of stressing etc, then when I got the error and lowered settings a lot, it still wouldn't post :(

    Anyone played with the dynamic oc feature with a 5950x? What crossover amperage are you settling on?

    Check this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJZIGUaEXvU
    I was able to get 4.5Ghz on all cores at v1.2. Using CTR with Hybrid OC is also a nice aproach or just use it to find your CPU limits.
