The massive version seems to be xeon only… what gives?

availability of the 7371 is lacking?

I love this rig.

They should sell those cases, damn.

Great stuff! System76 has come a long way!


I’m digging the case for sure. Not sure how I feel about the airflow options though.

i thought about that.

here is the idea:

air flow from the front and bottom
exhaust back and top

only exhaust doesnt really work low rpm, high rpm is too noisy.

I feel like the VRM suffers with that duct thing they have going on but they also didnt include a standard IO shield cutout so this is clearly not geared towards anyone who tinkers with overclocking.

its basically a buy and go set.

but if you a person who is into overclocking shouldnt go with this machine anyways because of those reasons.

technically it’s against NVidia’s license to use those graphics cards [2080s] for neural nets

What?? Source please?

10 posts were split to a new topic: Are Geforce cards really license-restricted for Neural Net uses?

I picked up one their mini ITX Thelio desktops a month ago (needed a second rig). Mine was configured with a Ryzen 7 2700X, 16GB of RAM (2933MHz), a 500GB NVMe SSD, and an RTX 2070. It’s a beast, but I do wish they had used a standard cutout for the rear IO and a GPU with a blower-style cooler (they installed an EVGA XC Gaming into my unit instead).

Statements like these and NVidia’s past shadyness certainly have to be considered as sure, they won’t go after people now but that’s not to say in a year or two they won’t. Or NVidia will just change what they mean by “commercial.”

The case looks sexy. Just need a front panel USB port and a standart IO cutout and it is good to go.

The rear io being part of the case makes me sad

The expansion slot mechanism reminds me of the one on the HP xw8400, except it doesn’t take your fingertip off when you release it.

Acer are going down a similar aesthetic rabbit hole with their new workstation chassis.

Not a huge wood on my PC case fan
