  1. Thanks again for everyone who helped me with my build. I finally decided on this setup: CPU: Ryzen 3950x PCPartPicker Part List CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 64.95 CFM CPU Cooler ($74.95 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard ($324.69 @ OutletPC) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($164.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($164.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($139.99 @ Adorama) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB AORUS Video Card Case: NZXT H710 ATX Mid Tower Case ($169.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: Corsair HX1000i (couldn´t find it on PCPartPicker) Total: $1224.49 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-08-31 12:43 EDT-0400 I chose the Rog Strix in the end since the price difference between this and other boards was a bit much where i live. All your suggestions led me to engange with this topic on a whole different level though, so thank you sincerely for that as well! Let´s see if my choices were wise in the end
  2. I never paid attention to those descriptors when choosing RAM. I've only been using stock cooling solutions so far, so it didn't really matter. Thank you for clarifying that. It seems like i was mixing this board up with another one earlier, sorry for that. I would like to use NVLINK though in order to use the gpu VRAM in a combined manner. Thanks again!
  3. Thank you for mentioning that, I already feared that this might be an issue. Do you think that there will be problems with the RAM you suggested? Ok, that would save me quite a bit of money, thanks! Huh, intriguing... this would save me a bunch as well. That looks like a sound suggestion, I’ll have to look into it. Why are you suggesting the Aorus Pro in particular? It doesn’t seem to be multi GPU capable. Thank you for your help!
  4. The price difference is about 80€ over here, which is quite a lot. The Taichi would cost me around the same as the strix-e... I‘m at a loss.
  5. Why? I know that the Taichi offers a lot for the price, but I’ve heard of heat dissipation issues and extremely loud fans. I am considering it as an alternative though. Yeah, but I already have a 2080 super, and the upcoming optix implementation will help me a lot in regards to managing renders. NVLINK with two 2080 s is my goal at the moment. Would the 850 PSU be enough for two 2080s and a 3950x? Thanks for the additional RAM recommendations, I really appreciate it!
  6. That sounds like a great idea. I‘ve never fiddled with RAM settings before though. So you think that I should be able to achieve the same timings and keep the system stable?
  7. Yes, that's definitely on my list. I came across the NZXT H700, which seems to suit my needs perfectly. Any opinions on this case? The new setup looks something like this: PCPartPicker Part List: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Cooler Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler $89.95 @ Amazon Motherboard Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard $324.69 @ OutletPC Memory G.Skill Trident Z Neo 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory $399.99 @ Newegg Storage Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive $139.99 @ Adorama Video Card Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB GAMING OC Video Card $744.98 @ Newegg Case NZXT H700 ATX Mid Tower Case $141.89 @ OutletPC Power Supply be quiet!

I don't think that i want to change the RAM to something cheaper since it seems to be quite perfect for Ryzen.
  8. Hmmm, kind of expected this. I‘m gonna research those boards.
  9. Going with a 570 board would be the right decision in regards to my chosen processor though, right? Nice! Yeah, i know It would be worth it for the aforementioned VRAM Issue, though. One can dream.... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Thanks again!
  10. Which Asus Boards would you reccomend in my situation? In theory it should be possible to access the combined Vram of my GPU setup if i would be able to use NVlink, right? Which would make it possible to build more complex scenes. Otherwise i would not need a SLI compatible board. Oh, and i completely forgot that i want to play games on this system as well, should have mentioned that one I would like to stick with the Ryzen in this case, since i will also do some work in Unreal Engine and Unity for VR Environments, the Threadripper i would like to use is also a lot more expensive than the 3950x is going to be. So the NH-D15 then..... i'll have to think about that. Is a 1000W PSU fine for this setup or a bit too much? Thank you for your help!
  11. You are absolutely right about that, and i will switch to a PRO SSD, but i already bought that one when it was on sale.
  12. Hello everyone! I'm studying fine arts and switched from painting and drawing to Blender. Since my current rig shows its age after serving me quite admirably for eight years, its finally time to go all in. My current plan looks like this: PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VRVNJ8 CPU: Ryzen 3950x CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 64.95 CFM CPU Cooler ($74.95 @ Amazon) Memory: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($399.99 @ Newegg) Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard ($269.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($139.99 @ Adorama) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB AORUS Video Card Power Supply: Corsair RMx 1000 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($189.88 @ OutletPC) Total: $804.81 Soooo, i already bought the gpu as well as the SSD for my current build to keep it alive for a bit longer. I am not sure about the specific Noctua fan as well as my choices in regards to the motherboard as well as the PSU. My goal is to build a system which is future proof. so enough slots for two GPU's and the possibility of adding additonal RAM is preferable. I know that the current board doesn't seem to offer SLI support, a different choice would be preferable for me because of that. The case is another variable which just gives me headaches. I need something which is sufficently ventilated without breaking the bank and blinding me with too much rgb goodness.... tough a little bit rgb might be fine.... I don't want to lose that performance boost I'm thankful for all suggestions, since I've never built a workstation before. Thanks!
