  1. Yeah, waiting for RDNA2 and Zen3 might be worth it, however then I might be waiting until end of the year I found this gem of a Thunderbolt card GC-TITAN RIDGE 1.0 CARD, which seems to work fine on AMD. Now I can get a nice motherboard: I also went with 4x16GB @ 3600MHz, it is cheaper than the 2 32GB dimms. This build seems quite nice to me: PCPartPicker Part List: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/VNYfBZ CPU: *AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor (€415.00 @ Amazon Deutschland) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler (€99.90 @ Amazon Deutschland) Motherboard: Asus PRIME X570-PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard (€249.90 @ ARLT) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory (€285.99 @ Alternate) Storage: Sabrent Rocket 2 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (€279.95 @ Amazon Deutschland) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB NITRO+ Video Card (€447.99 @ Mindfactory) Case: Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case (€88.23 @ Mindfactory) Power Supply: Corsair RM (2019) 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (€124.89 @ Alternate) Case Fan: be quiet!

  2. Budget (including currency): 2250€ Country: Germany Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Triple Boot System (QEMU + KVM) - macOS: Main OS, Programming, XCode, Photoshop, Illustrator - Ubuntu: Testing environment (Docker, Kubernetes, PyTorch,...) - Windows: Solidworks, light gaming (eSports) Other details This machine should replace my triple boot MacBook Pro 15" Mid 2014 + Thunderbolt eGPU + 2 4K displays - Thunderbolt required, as macOS will be mounted from Macbook in Target Disk Mode (I hate syncing environments ) - AMD GPU to avoid Linux and macOS driver issues - GPU should have 3 Displayports for 4K displays (2x60Hz, 1x144Hz) as I will probably get a 3rd display as I will be losing the MacBook screen - No need for RGB, tempered glass, a stealthy black box is fine - As silent as possible I tried to put something together, but failed pretty badly: - I think Ryzen 3900X is the best CPU choice, however I can't find any AM4 Motherboard with Thunderbolt except a Mini ITX one. I would like a simple ATX board for upgradeability. Are there any AMD compatible PCIE Thunderbolt cards? - What is the best memory choice? - I have no idea which components are silent (CPU Cooler, Case, GPU). The fanless PSU seems nice, but it is expensive for 600W and I'm pretty sure another component will be louder than a PSU fan anyway PCPartPicker Part List: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/M9Hqn7 CPU: *AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor (€415.00 @ Amazon Deutschland) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler (€106.80 @ Alza) Motherboard: ASRock X570 PHANTOM GAMING-ITX/TB3 Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard (€246.99 @ Amazon Deutschland) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 64 GB (2 x 32 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (€278.20 @ Mindfactory) Storage: Sabrent Rocket 2 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (€279.95 @ Amazon Deutschland) Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB THICC III Ultra Video Card (€427.99 @ Mindfactory) Case: Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case (€88.23 @ Mindfactory) Power Supply: SeaSonic PRIME Titanium 600 W 80+ Titanium Certified Fully Modular Fanless ATX Power Supply (€216.89 @ Alternate) Total: €2060.05 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available *Lowest price parts chosen from parametric criteria Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-06-18 14:53 CEST+0200 Thanks for your help
  3. Thanks very much for your suggestion. The P53 might be a bit chunky, but it really checks all the boxes. I would really like to go AMD for the fantastic battery life. How likely is it for Thinkpads to get AMD CPUs?
  4. I don't like dongles on the go and I need thunderbolt to connect it to my eGPU driven monitor setup at home. A combination of those two would be perfect
  5. Hey guys, I'm looking for a high-end workstation laptop to replace my ageing 15" 2014 MacBook Pro. The OS does not matter, as it will be running Linux anyway. The new MacBooks are out of question, as I won't buy a laptop with a soldered SSD. Also the TouchBar is a no-go It will be used for software development, running a lot of VMs and a bit of CAD Requirements: - CPU: at least 6 cores (maybe 4000 series AMD?) - RAM: at least 16GB - I/O: 2 USB 3.0 and 2 Thunderbolt - Display: 14-16" IPS QHD or similar (no need for 4k, touch or high refresh) - SSD: NVME 1TB Nice to have: - 16:10 aspect ratio - good touchpad - HDMI - headphone jack Budget: 3000 USD Thanks in advance
  6. Ok, I see available wireless keyboards aren't cutting it. Let's take wireless of the list then. I have a background in embedded systems, so converting USB to Bluetooth shouldn't be too hard, given there's enough space to fit a decent battery, bluetooth module and charge circuit.
  7. I just hate cables ? Battery will last forever without RGB. I've been using wireless keyboards for the last 15 years.
  8. Seems like a great keyboard for the money, but it is only a 65%. I really need my function keys.
  9. Hey, I'm planning on getting a mechanical keyboard. So here's the requirements list I came up with: - Tenkeyless layout - Compatible with after market keycaps (so Cherry-compatible I guess) - Wireless - No RGB nonsense - Tactile silent switches (Cherry Browns or better) Nice to have: - Black ABS double shot keycaps - Heavy metal plate - As low footprint and low profile as possible Budget: < $250 I know that wireless mechanical keyboard are quite rare, so I'm also open to DIY kits. Thanks for your suggestions
  10. I'm building an eGPU. I'm looking for the quietest SFX PSU, not the best PSU overall.
  11. A SilverStone SX500-LG v2.0 or a Corsair SF450 seem to be a good choice. However is hard to say which one is better
  12. Hey, I'm looking for a fanless or really silent SFX power supply with at least 350W Thanks for the suggestions
  13. Sadly off-the-shelf eGPUs are quite noisy. Aren't there any standalone eGPU boards?
  14. Hey, I want to build a Thunderbolt 3 Expansion Box, that should be an eGPU and an expandable storage solution in a single enclosure. The box should use 2 Thunderbolt Cables one for the GPU and one for storage. It would also be nice if the storage could be accessed over the network. Requirements: - GPU that supports 2 4k displays and some light gaming (e.g. Overwatch, ...) - 12 TB in RAID 5 (maybe with a little SSD Cache) - Silent case with dust filters and a lot of hard drive bays. I don't know if such a build is even possible, but it would be the ultimate docking system for my laptop as I prefer always working on the same machine. Thanks
