Workstation build, have some questions

dkosta
 Share

I am building a new workstation. I will use it for, CAD, GIS, Adobe Illustrator, editing point clouds and some video editing.

I am in need of high clock speeds for same workloads (most of the time) and cores for some other.

 

Can somebody please help me with some doubts? And of course if you have some recommendation please comment.

 

MBO: Asus X299 SAGE/10G

CPU: Intel Core i9-9920X + Noctua NH-D15

RAM: 64GB (planned upgrade to 128GB)

GPU: Quadro RTX4000

SSD: Intel Optane 905P U.2 480GB

PSU: Corsair AX860i

CASE: Corsair 750D Airflow Edition

HDD: 4x WD Gold 8GB

 

So my questions are:

 

1) Which RAM to choose?

2) Is the 9920X compatible with this motherboard (does anybody have this combination, if is not compatible any similar motherboard suggestion)?

3) Does this motherboard fit in the case?

4) Is the PSU strong enough for silent operation (no fan spinning)?

 

Thank you for your help

1) any 3000 mhz ram, i would recommend looking into samung b-dye sticks at that budget

2) as far as I know yes, but be aware that the 9920x is a soldered 7920x. a taichi is a option too

3) as far as I know, yes

4) not without fan spinning, but pretty silent

because 3000 mhz gives a bit more performence over 2400 or 2666 mhz, and doesn't cost more. the samsung b dye is just the highest quality (relatively cheap) dye you can get. I'm not sure about any bios updates, but as far as I know they are both skylake based

the taichi because it's a great board too, just to give a alternative
