    That's a 65W TDP cooler. The 2600x has 95W TDP. That cooler is awesome for things like a 3200g or 2200g. But definitely not a 2600x.

    Anyway: should I do one side with glass and an aio or both sides mesh and an air cooler?

    And I will probably get a different motherboard, as the Gigabyte isn't available right now. The Asus B450 is available at my retailer of choice.

    I just ordered a Corsair H60 aio. Might as well do it right. Also ordered an ASUS B450 itx board as that was the only not x570 one that would be delivered before Easter. And it's not bad either. Also ordered 2 Noctua 140mm fans, the Evolv Shift with glas panels and replacement mesh panels, so the CPU side can be glas, the Vega will face the mesh.

    Plugged in the CPU and memory. Slapped in an old Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 in, fired it up into BIOS, everything detected correctly. Turned on memory XMP or whatever, chose 3600 MHz, 16-19-19-39 timings.

    Reminds me how much I hate putting CPU coolers on. This was miles better than a few Intel ones where you'd have to push pins through, but still. Do not like.

    Glad the main components aren't DOA.

    Ordered a Crucial MX500 1 TB m.2 drive, will probably pick up a Noctua NH-U14 and a Corsair 550 or 650 watt RMx PSU and will be good to go from scratch.

    Compared to the old Socket7 / SocketA heatsinks, modern ones are easymode.

    Socket 7 coolers were lightweight compared to everything that came after.

    Yah but they were an utter fucking pain to install, even now I remember the fucking around with a screwdriver trying to force the clip under the catch, one slip and you gouged the motherboard

    And if you did it wrong you chipped (HA!) the cpu wrecking it in the install process. Kids these days have it so easy.

    I don't miss the fun and games of old CPUs coming out of the socket when you tried to remove the heatsink.
    How to tell the difference between Machine Learning and AI:
    If it is written in Python it is most likely Machine Learning.
    If it is written in PowerPoint it is most likely AI.

    Good point, I haven't used a pinned CPU for well over a decade myself. Heck my Xeon CPU will soon have its 5th birthday.

    Did that recently with a Ryzen 2200g. Bit of a yikes moment but everything turned out fine in the end.

    Got a beQuiet Dark Rock 4 to replace the stock Wraith Spire cooler, got the old cooler off, wiped down the old paste, unpacked the cooler and... one of the damn backplate screws was missing in a sealed packet.

    Well, at least I got around to dusting the insides and applying new paste (which made about 3 degrees of difference).

    Doing a "new" build today using old and used parts, and my EPS cable is 2" too short. Curses! Ordered an extension today, will be here in about two weeks.

    I killed at least 2 Athlon XPs doing that.

    To lose one may be regarded as a misfortune. To lose both looks like carelessness.
