Thanks for the reply however what I was asking was if I use the same ssd, only on a different slot.

I'm not a 100% sure but I think you could mount 80mm fans in the rear. If you would go with more exhaust than intake, that would create a negative pressure. It is ideal for airflow however dust build-up is imminent in this kind of setup. Going with the x71 is a good choice since you are utilizing 2 radiators.

You forgot a cooler. Since it seems you're siding with corsair products, then may I suggest the h150i. Also, change the 970 Evo to a Pro. Better reliability and performance.

P. S. Make sure that you are not using alot of pwm splitters on your Commander Pro. Max current it can handle is 4.5A

I suggest you do both as intake and add fans for exhaust. Those radiators benefit from having fresh air intake. Typical arrangement is;

Intake: Front and bottom;

Exhaust: Top and rear.

For your case (no pun intended), do the bottom and side as intake and top and rear as exhaust. Try to balance out the intake and exhaust.

Well I've stored nothing that significant however I do not wish to go through the pain of reinstalling softwares. I guess I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the advice.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Build opinions and question about cooling."

I recommend you swap to an Intel processor as AutoCad is more optimized to run on an Intel platform. Also, AutoCad relies on higher frequency CPUs; it does not benefit from a multi-core system (by multi-core I mean more than 4 cores).

Nevertheless, a Ryzen build is good for future-proofing. Who knows, maybe in the future, AutoCad would be optimized to run on Ryzen.

P.S. That cooler is very much sufficient for your chosen hardware. Downgrading it to an X52 or even an X42 would only save you a couple of bucks, so I suggest go with the X62. I also recommend you mount it on the front as it would produce less noise and cool the CPU better. A little caveat, front mounted radiators could cause some increase in GPU temps.

(https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9nRXBb)

Rationale on the choice of parts:

CPU - The AMD Ryzen is a budget friendly yet powerful CPU. It is capable of light multitasking and play multiple types of games.

Motherboard - The X470 is a nice match for your needs as it capable of supporting dual GPU setups if you wish to in the future. Also, the x370, x470 platform will be able to support future CPU releases (until 2020 according to AMD).

RAM - a dual stick 8GB memory would allow you a 16GB system with two more DIMM slots available for future expansion (up to 32GB). 3000MHz would be beneficial to th Ryzen CPU.

GPU - 1050ti is a very capable GPU.

Storage - 1TB is sufficient. **

PSU - 850 watts is future-proofing for you if you intend to go dual GPU in the future.

Case - Hey you can get a decent looking case without breaking your pocket.

Peripherals - Monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers are up to your preference.

*SSD is recommended to be added in the future.

P. S. - You could swap the 2600x with a 1600x and use the money to purchase a 240 GB SSD.

I should avoid the 200mm fans in there. Gamernexus did a review on that case and the 200mm fans performed poorly on that case.

Just a suggestion. Swap the 1 TB nvme ssd to a lower capacity (say 500gb) and purchase a separate higher capacity mechanical HDD for storage.

What is your budget? For such tasks, a cpu with multiple cores is ideal. These softwares are heavily threaded.

Go for a higher PSU for future proofing just in case you have plans to upgrade GPUs, etc. For your CPU, it would be sufficient to run AutoCAD, 3DS Max, Sketchup, Revit, etc. on a simple project like houses. That CPU would really be insufficient if you have plans for rendering and complicated 3D modelling.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "PC for AutoCAD and Energy Modeling"

AutoCAD is mostly a single core software, it does not benefit from higher core counts but rather benefit higher frequency. It also benefit more from a good gpu. I am not familiar with the other software you mentioned so my opinion might be contradictory. For your RAM, try going for more modules. you could go for 2 x 4gb rather than 1 x 8gb.

He asked for a heavy rendering pc , the i7 7700k, the cpu ideal for gaming would never come close to the ryzen in terms of pure rendering power and its perfomance in gaming can easily be overshadowed by a powerful gpu.

The trident z with frequency higher than 2666 would cause the system to a no post. The question was will it go well not compatibility, perhaps you can't understand simple English. I was asking if I should wait for a BIOS update, I was not asking about compatibility, but rather efficiency. To put it to simple words; my question is ryzen, trident z rgb good ? or me wait update BIOS? Hopefully you would understand the question. :/

Check your cables just to be sure there are no short and try booting the pc using another gpu. This is how you would know if the motherboard is ok. If you have time it is best to bring it to a shop so they could test it for you.

Hmm it is hard to determine the cause. The sparks could either be a faulty GPU or some short. How often did you use you pc before this happened?

Are your cables new or have you tested them to be functional? If yes, perhaps the video card is just loose, try removing and attaching it again.

This is just basic a fix, cannot really determine a solution without your pc specs.

Are you planning to buy within this week? if not, I suggest you wait for the release of the GTX 1080 ti on March 10. The MSRP would be $699.00 and the performance is somewhat the same level with the GTX Titan X (Pascal).

P.S. Your choice of parts is good for gaming but if you are considering SLI in the future, I suggest increase the capacity of your PSU.
