P.S. I advise Founder's Edition GPUs as Nvidia usually reserves the good silicon for themselves.

I would recommend 32GB RAM minimum, 64GB for a nice upgrade. For Threadrippers you can get 128 or even 256GB RAM but usually, that's overkill. For RAM speeds, DDR4-3200 or 3600 works fine. I recommend GSkill's Trident Z or Trident Neo. Corsair's Dominator Pro RGB or Dominator Platinum is pretty nice as well, although excessively expensive. ECC RAM is completely optional, and currently, there is no ECC RAM at those speeds, so I would advise against ECC RAM. (Note: Only Xeons, 3rd Gen Ryzen, and Threadrippers on some, not all motherboards support ECC RAM)

As of motherboards, Asus's PRIME or WS series works pretty well for Z390, X470, X570, and TR4. For Intel X-Series, Asus ROG is a pretty nice board. MSI Gaming series is also okay as well (the board I'm using right now) but to be fair, I wish I bought an Asus board. If you have enough money to burn, Gigabyte Aurous Extreme, Asus ROG Dominus Extreme, MSI Godlike, and MSI Creation are all excellent boards, with premium features, heatsinks everywhere, and mind-blowing connectivity, though you need quite a big wallet to afford these boards.

Minimum - For your scenario, I would recommend a minimum of 3rd Gen Ryzen 7, although if you get that you may as well upgrade to Ryzen 9. Minimum 1660 Super GPU.

Medium - Ryzen 9 or i9 X-Series paired with 2070 Super or 2080 Super

Fast - Ryzen 9 3950X or Threadripper with 2080Ti

Let's burn money - 64 core Threadripper and 2x Titan RTX

This should work quite nicely for you. You can add a HDD or SATA SSD here for more storage if you need more.

What is your budget? If you have no budget, go for the 3950X. If your budget is around $500, then go for Ryzen 9 3900X. i9-9900K currently features little value due to the Ryzen series having much more multi-core performance.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "2700 VS 2700 X VS 3600X"

Here are some use cases.

2700 - Budget video editing (Cheap 8-core)

2700X - Best value in general (8-core and high clocks)

3600 - Gaming (Very high clocks and better in-game performance/optimization than last gen)

3600X - Don't really see why you would want 3600X. It's in this weird price range, where if you want more value, you should just get the 3600, and if you want max gaming performance, you should get i5.

3rd Gen Threadrippers are incredibly expensive, and for his scenario, he probably won't need that much CPU power.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Need to build scientific computer with CUDA implementation"

With the price drop of 1st gen and 2nd gen Threadrippers, they have become very good choices for workstations, having 64 PCIe lanes for 2 full x16 lanes (whereas the second x16 slot for Z390 us usually limited to x4). I also chose a 1200W PSU since 1600W is very overkill. I would have gone with a even lower wattage if the Threadrippers wern't so power intensive.

The RAM is much cheaper with faster speeds, and the 660p is a NVME SSD with much lower prices than the SATA SSD (meaning much higher speeds with a lower cost). I also reccommend a quality case.

I reccommend Founders Edition cards, as Nvidia usually reserves the best silicon for their own cards, plus it is the cheapest.

I don't know whether or not your workloads are CPU intensive, I chose a 2920X in case it is. If it is only GPU intensive, you can get extremely good value with TR 1920X and TR 1900X, costing only $200 and $130 respectively. Talk about value!

Gaming chairs do offer some type of support, but I would say a $300 gaming chair and a $45 office chair would offer the same level of support. Of course, both are better than regular chairs, but I would not spend that type of money just on a chair.

If you want to save $300 instead of getting publicity, go for the office chair. I see no point in getting gaming chairs.

AIO is very good, custom cooling is just a suggestion. For Threadripper AIO is minimum. I'm not sure the temps with X72, but I think it's fine.

In a nutshell:

Noctua - May struggle to cool Threadripper

AIO - Good

Custom - Amazing, but entirely optional

I reccommend EKWB, they have really high quality products. Their custom loop building tool is also very useful.

I use Cinebench R20 and 3DMark. (I use demo edition, enough for me) For monitoring my Ryzen CPU, I obviously use Ryzen Master. NZXT Cam is great for monitoring fan and cooler data. (since I own NZXT cooler and case) I also use CPU-Z to see my CPU specifications, and surpringly, the Windows Task Manager can be helpful as well, for monitoring the usage of everything. For GPU I use MSI Afterburner.

In many workloads the Titan RTX is a lifesaver, I'm feeling that the Quadros and Titans get too much hate because everyone thinks about gaming performance. Gaming isn't everything!

Motherboard power delivery is definetly good enough. Kraken coolers work, although at this budget you may as well go the custom cooling loop path for best cooling. 3600MHz RAM will increase performance, but currently all of the kits are too expensive. I would say double the RAM > increasing RAM frequency by 400MHz.

Here is a comprehensive list of Quadro cards and their GeForce counterparts.

  • Quadro RTX 4000 is on par with 2070
  • Quadro RTX 5000 is better than 2080Ti but less good than Titan RTX
  • Quadro RTX 6000 is on par with Titan RTX
  • Quadro RTX 8000 is the exact same as Quadro RTX 6000 but with double the VRAM

Just want to add something here, Quadros have ECC VRAM. For your use case Titan RTX would be great. Quadro RTX 6000/P6000 is amazing but usually overkill.

Really amazing build, especially for first build. +1 for making the ultimate PC. I like how you have 3 different 1TB SSDs.

P.S. Have you turned on X-AMP for your RAM? It says DDR4-2133 in the BIOS.
