    My original 12VHPWR cable that came with my new ROG Thor P2 1200W seems to slip out a split millimeter after a while (especially if I touch the cable in the back chamber of my case) and I have to push it back in so there is no gap (the Nvidia adapter doesn't exhibit this problem, it firmly stays in place). It isn't much and barely noticeable except if I zoom in on the phone, but I'm still worried. Is yours the same way or is it just the one I got?

    I haven't seen a slip out so far. I use mine for ~2 weeks. But I will have a look

    /edit: nope. I just had a look all around. no gap at all.

    /edit2:
    make sure that there is 0.00 force on the connector. No pushing or pulling whatsoever. I can't imagine a "slip out" without pushing or pulling. But a push can also happen if the Connector has some ridges somewhere. So maybe you want to look after this.

    Thank you for the information. I guess I'll have to contact ASUS then and get it replaced. I've got cable mod cables for the PSU coming in, but it looks like it'll take a while. Hopefully ASUS customer support will be faster.

    To be honest, I would take the Asus cable over the cable mod cables all day. In another forum over here in Germany, there are at least two users that got cables from cable mod that didn't work. It may be due to the Sense Pins not grounded on the right wires (just a guess - they haven't measured it).
    Because of this, I have a bad feeling in terms of QC on the cable mod cables. But then again: there are only 2 cases that I know... The choice is yours.

    Oh and remember: if you go all Asus (GPU and PSU) you don't need to worry about the warranty. I do have to worry because I have a Gigabyte Card and Gigabyte stated to me that I have no warranty on melting Connectors if I do not use the Adapter of Gigabyte. I really love them. Not.
    The card is good, but the support is as bad as it could be.

    Hm, that's not good. I noticed that my ASUS cable has the cables attached to sense pins in the first two slots while the Nvidia Adapter that came with the card has sense pin cables in slot 1 and 3 instead.
    I think the nice, individually sleeved cables that came with my PSU are made by cablemod as well and it came with a 20% off coupon for cablemod cables. I'd assume ASUS would cover a problem with those, too. In any case, I want white cables so I guess I'll have to bite the bullet. Or perhaps I can put some sort of white wrap around the ASUS cable instead? I'll have to think about it.

    Lukily I don't care for the color - as long as it is black :D

    I even would have taken the all black all Metal Fractal Torrent but it was said that the Metal Sidepanels are flimsy and tend to rattle.So I went the glassdoor way. But I am still not happy with the look as it isn't all black.

    Heh, the black cables included with the Thor P2 are super nice anyway. It's too bad I went with an all white theme on my build. :D

    I wonder if you could have stuck some thin foam pads between the case and the metal side panel to stop it from rattling.

    I could have done this. I even could have covered it with HiFi Dampening stuff (I only know the German Name "Alubutyl") that I have laying around. But I don't want to mod such things anymore. I simply want it to work OOB.

    Right, now I remember. Hope you'll get it today so you have the weekend to test.

    I assume you're not interested in the MSI ATX3.0 ones? They're quite expensive.

    True but they behave more like normal PCIe cables which I prefer.

    More expensive than the ax1600i ? Seems doubtful... lol

    But no, i am not interested in msi psu's. Ideally i want the very best from seasonic or corsair.

    Edit : no i just checked, the msi MEG Ai1300P is substantially cheaper than the ax1600i - but im willing to bet also a substantially worse product.

    And yeah, it's waiting for me to pick it up... just gotta get off work... zZzZzZzZz...

    Just ran an experiment to bump up my RAM speed in the heavily CPU bottlenecked Far Cry 6.

    5120x1440 High/RTX on

    DDR 3600 CL17 : 94 fps
    DDR 3800 CL18 : 97 fps

    OK, it's only 3% but it's also only a small increase in RAM speed. I think it shows that some people with older Intel systems could get a good few % with a RAM upgrade. Prior to the 4090, a RAM upgrade was essentially pointless.

    From what I can tell so far, Intel responds better to frequency than latency.

    9900k is a lottery whether you can go above DDR4000 but 10, 11 and 12th gen Intel should see some nice improvements if you move from 3600 to 4200+ RAM.

    Tested 3090 with ax1600i now... no difference. I suspect there wont be with 4090 either. But getting late now, and cba to do anymore tonight.

    Try running 200mhz below advertised XMP, seems to be a bios issue. Went from my 3200mhz to 4600, running it at 4400mhz. Seen improvements between 2-10% in performance depending on the title.
    Was really tempted to get a 13th gen system but trying to hold out for RibbonFET cpu's.

    Ribbonfet... annonced for 2024, but that seems rather unlikely imo.

    Personally im waiting for 14th gen.

    What voltages do you need for the VRAM, VCCIO and VCCSA for 4400mhz?

    I'm thinking about buying RAM but I will also try overclocking my current RAM a bit more.

    I'm also going to skip 13th gen, yes it's better than what I've got but not enough to completely unblock the 4090 :)

    I left it default XMP profile and set the frequency 4400mhz so my voltages are higher than they could be:
    RAM: 1.5
    VCCIO: 1.36
    VCCSA: 1.4
    I just cbf fine tuning RAM sticks anymore :D

    Added some customizations to my Gundam Intel build. Jazzed up my 4090 a bit. Work in progress. I'm happy with the results. System is stable as well.

    Nice but that CPU radiator.... The highest point is where water enters/exits the radiator. If/when you get enough air in the system, it might prevent the water from being able to circulate the loop.

    For a second there I thought you wrote "Gungan Intel Build". :D

    Tested with 4090 strix now... no difference with ax1600i vs my old ax1200i - the 4090 is still a screamy piggy...

    So back to rma the 4090 goes... and ax1600i going back aswell, then i will wait for proper next gen psu's.
