This is a major overhaul of my first build (from the days when an i7-5960X was a big deal)

= = = = = = Current target build = = = = = =


CASE:              InWin S-Box Titanium*

MOBO:             Asus ROG Strix TRX40-XE

CPU:                 AMD Threadripper 3990X

CPU cooling:   AIO - looking for suggestions

GPU:                NVidia Quadro RTX 6000

RAM:                64GB G.Skill Ripjaws 4 3200 MHz*

Boot drive:      500GB Samsung 980 Pro (if available)

Data drive:       2x 1TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus (RAID 0)

PSU:                 Seasonic Snowsilent 1050*

OS:                   Windows 10 Pro


*recycled from previous build.


I'm open to comments in general, except for the case.  It's a true one of a kind and I'm not about to give it up.


I am in need of suggestions for a good AIO cooler.  In the old build I had a custom loop with a 360mm + 240mm rads.  It's a lot to fit into a mid tower.  It was also a headache and didn't give as clean a look as I wanted.  I also have room for a 280mm AIO.  With 64 cores, I'm not too concerned about major overclocking!🤪


This is a work + play computer.  I need the cores for optical design (ray trace) and Monte Carlo simulations.  The Quadro is for CAD and CFT.  I will be upgrading the RAM.  Ray trace is very memory intensive and even 128GB isn't really enough for some simulations.  I would welcome suggestions for good quality ECC RAM.  I will transition to 64GB or 128GB ECC, then go up to 256GB in the future.


I'm not against throwing in a 3080 or 3090 for gaming - not sure how well Quadro performance transfers over to gaming.  Thoughts and feedback here appreciated as well.

I suggest having a couple of RTX 3090 instead, a single one can out perform a RTX6000 by 50+%.

Check this article.




SolidWorks (CAD) and Flow (CFD) won't play with an RTX 3090.  It's Quadro or run everything through the CPU.


I read the quad RTX 3090 article earlier this evening.  I was shocked at how well everything scaled, but alas that will have to wait for a recreational build.
