@kelvin_tan good thing that i have a fan splitter around, and the led i have, these are the ones https://www.amazon.com/Phanteks-PH-LEDKT_Combo-Strip-Combo-Retail/dp/B01HUFMIZ2/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=phanteks+led+strip&qid=1553287842&s=gateway&sr=8-1 and i just added a second LED strip into the other side but i had to put it on the top of the case (the one with the mesh sides) and then use an extender to connect it to the other led strip. So now i have lights in both sides.

@kelvin_tan this thread has made my day! Thanks for the offer my man! 

I'm noticing the Vega 64 has this cool little tachometer set of LEDs, it lights up as the GPU comes under load. They omitted the LEDs and accompanying cutout in the RVII reference design, though the board still has the solder points for the LEDs. Boo.

I'm noticing a light clicking from the GPU when under load, let's say as I scrub through footage.. I'm thinking it almost might be something to do with the relays that operate those LEDs? 

I LOL'd at the offer to trade an RVII to work in my basement. That's southern Alberta for you. The basement never peaks above 19ºC or so even in the summer, provided we're wise about air management. I literally do not own an air conditioning unit. 

I recommended an iPPC fan for you but should have recommended the NF-P12 redux. They have a very low startup voltage (5-5.6v) which is super satisfactory. Such is not the case with iPPC or NF-A12. I have some iPPCs going in a filter unit that keeps my work room (and associated gear, like lenses, computers) dust free. 2x 120mm fans pull air through a HEPA and exhaust it out the back. Smile

I don't think I need to add a fan to the front of the Core X, my flow is good at the moment. Speaking of fans though, the LC fan is run by the GPU and obviously spools up with temperature or load. However, if fans are plugged in to the header on the Core X board, what determines their RPM? Temps? Load? TB3 bandwidth?

If you love such LEDs you should go for an Asus XG Station Pro: It has exactly that kind of LEDs built in and they work great...

@oliverb it looks nice, however i needed extra juice in the PSU and also the space in case i wanna use a water cooled card, or add a third party AIO for the VII (Alphacool maybe)

The tachometer leds are present on my reference Vega, I set the dip switches to turn it off, but turned it on to hear any clicking while footage scrubbing (fcpx)... don’t hear any even with ears right next to it.

The fan header on the core x I think like most other enclosures is dependent on the thunderbolt chip temperature for regulation.

sure if you think you need the panel just let me know.

What's the situation now? Is 10.14.4 public? Does it work with Radeon VII?

6:42pm ET Monday, Software update still only says 10.14.4 Beta 6.

Completing a Time Machine backup and checking MacOS Sys Prefs regularly to try the update and Radeon VII once 10.14.4 releases.
