ImaPirate, my friend, nice to hear from you after long time!
My personal opinion to the topic addressed in the contribution you linked above is the following. As we passed already nearly a decade after introducing the first 64-bit systems, I think it is really time to start discarding 32-bit software for 64-bit systems. Apparently, 10.13.4 is just a first step towards this direction and still seems no to have any further major implications against running likely outdated 32-bit software on 64-bit systems, apart from a first simple warning that you are running 32-bit software instead of 64-bit software on a 64-bit system. I would rather interpret the latter in my opinion yet tiny novel implication as some clear signal of Apple towards all software developers. I just want to stress that all this is really my personal opinion and impression, which might be totally at odd with the opinion of other estimated users.
To your other question. After delidding my i9-7980XE and with my current water blocking system, I am successfully able to run the latter processor on my system @ 4.7GHz with "CPU Core Ratio" set to "Sync all Cores". All other related BIOS settings have been outlined just a few posts ago. However, I want to clearly advice against running the delidded i9-7980XE @ 4.8GHz, as occasionally intended during one of my benchmark runs. The latter might result in an exponential increase of the CPU Core Voltage and might result in a severe damage of either your CPU or mainboard. If at all, always increase the CPU Core Voltage stepwise and manually and take care that it never exceeds 1.25V by far. When running the CPU at @4.7GHz, a manual CPU Core Voltage of 1.22V seems sufficient. When applying OC, always carefully watch your CPU Temps! The CPU Temps might not only strongly depend on your water blocking implementation but also on the processor frequency and especially on the tightly related CPU Core Voltage implementation!
A good hacking and OC,
Well, thanks for the answers. I hope that all the apps that I'm using will only be improved when we move to 10.3.4 as Adobe apps have both 32 to 64 bit compatible. I'm going to stick with 10.3.2 for now until the official move to 10.3.4.
Now when it comes OC'ing the system, I'm excited that I held the record for all of 4 to 6 weeks (at 60,500) about 2 months ago. Now that you got over 65,000 you're the clear winner here and that's awesome! You got braggin' rights now! When it comes to stepping in my OC, I'm not going to even bother, as I don't understand that very well and I want my system to last for the next 5 years. I'm just glad that I have all three 28" inch 4K monitors working properly, as well as everything else. I look forward to seeing how the newer OS improvements will help our systems to work better.
I hope I have time later on to take some nicer pics of my custom built system here soon. For now all I have is this link:
Also, you (by far) have the most pages and posts I've ever seen on TonyMac. You are very dedicated to everyone here and to me you are worthy of:
