New threadripper build


Looking to put together a hybrid workstation / gaming rig, based in the UK, not sure on budget sub £5k would be nice, the phase one list is £4995, if I can find better value for money that would help.


Wanting high core count and a lot of RAM for running VMs and then dual boot to allow gaming with a good gpu, current plan is:


Phase 1:


4x https://www.scan.co.uk/products/32gb-2x16gb-corsair-ddr4-vengeance-rgb-pro-black-pc4-27700-3466-non-ecc-unbuff-cas-16-18-18-36-rgb-l

Gaming OS: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/512gb-samsung-970-pro-m2-2280-pcie-30-x4-nvme-ssd-phoenix-mlc-v-nand-3500mb-s-read-2300mb-s-write-37
Bulk storage for VMs: 3x https://www.scan.co.uk/products/1tb-crucial-mx500-25-ssd-sata-iii-6gb-s-sm2258-3d-tlc-nand-read-560mb-s-write-510mb-s-95k-90k-iops-r

Phase 2 would see a 2nd GPU and custom WC loop for both GPUs and the CPU.


I struggled to find a case that would take the e-ATX board, large PSU and have space for some large rads, any other options?


Looking for a sanity check and maybe some opinions if there are better options, its been over 15 years since I build a PC.

I think 128 GB RAM is little bit overkill, but why not when you can afford it ??
