the threadRipper rebuild
Tuesday, January 28, 2020 by starkers | Discussion: Personal Computing
After moving interstate from Queensland to Tasmania, it came to pass that my primary PC wouldn't start. I tried all sorts of things and no go, it was dead in the water.... or so I thought. Upon removing some of the components to make way for a new build, I inadvertently touched the Start button on the motherboard and the machine started. Turns out it was a faulty hard-drive, that once removed the machine started without issue. Thing is, I had already set my heart on an AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper rebuild and I'd already begun to order the components; hence, this new thread.
Anyway, here's a rundown of the components going into this rebuild of the CoolerMaster Cosmos II case, some from the previous build and those that I recently ordered:
Motherboard: MSI X399 SLI PLUS.
CPU: AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 2920X.
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML280 RGB TR4 Edition.
PSU: Corsair HX1200i Platinum.
GPU: AMD Radeon RX570.
SoundCard: Creative Soundblaster ZxR.
OS SSD: Intel 760p 512GB M.2 SSD.
SSD: x 2 500GB Crucial P1 M.2 PCIe SSD.
HDD: x 4 WD 4TB Greens;
That's all the main stuff but there's various bits 'n pieces going in to expand the PCIe slots; the SATA3 ports; the rear USB3.1 slots. I may also up the 64GB [4 x 16] RAM with another 64GB some time down the track... it would come in handy for music and video editing.
Some would say that this thread is useless without piccies, so here's some to start with:
WWell that's it for now... more later when I've made some progress.
