Need a workstation that will be crunching genome data

Budget (including currency): $795.55 (weird price cuz subtracted cpu price from $1200) (This budget also includes tax and shipping)

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Rstudio running genome data sequences and forming graphs with the data

Other details:

  • A friend have put this together in pcpartpicker if you need a starting point.
  • Existing part list - Already bought a new i7 12700k as well as have a old full size tower.
  • Motherboard needs to have onboard graphics and basic usb, mouse, keyboard, audio, and hdmi ports.
  • 1tb of hdd
  • Prefer fan cooler over AIO.
  • Do not need graphics card.
  • 32 gb ram or 64 gb if you can fit within budget
  • My current pc have done this process and was not built for this purpose, but it takes 9 hours. Specs are
    • cpu: Ryzen 5 3600 (6 cores)
    • ram: 16x2 gb ripjaw g.skill
    • motherboard: gigabyte b450m ds3h
    • graphics card: nividia geforce gtx 1660 super
    • power supply 850 watt
  • My biggest concern is the cooling for the i7 12700k. This workstation will be under 100% load for hours.

Thank you.

My understanding of post was you had a $1200 budget for this PC but you already bought CPU bringing it down to the $795 budget left. This is a build for around $720 and I put 128 GB of ram a little bit for the memes because I am not if that much ram will be useful. Really the big thing that I would recommended is getting the Noctua NH-D15 CPU fan if you are worried about thermals and make sure your case is decked out with fans. Do not use a case with a closed front, you will want a mesh front for airflow. You also don't need 4000 MHz ram, the 12700k caps at 3200 MHz stock. ( Intel® Core™ i7-12700K Processor )

Given the load, a decent motherboard with good VRM and heatsinks is needed.

 

Invest in a new mesh front case with a clear airflow path.

 

Without a GPU, even a 550W PSU is more than needed.

 

An NVMe drive is not much more than an HDD and the performance improvement makes it well worthwhile.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Motherboard needs to have onboard graphics

while motherboards no longer have onboard graphics these days, your CPU does have integrated graphics. Most motherboards will come with an HDMI and/or displayport output. So you don’t need to worry about that.

 

If you bought the KF version, it has no graphics and you will need a basic GPU; if that’s so and you’re in the US I have a GT610 I would send for cost of shipping.

You also don't need 4000 MHz ram, the 12700k caps at 3200 MHz stock. ( Intel® Core™ i7-12700K Processor )

This can be misleading. It’s true that’s the stock cap, but with XMP enabled it is easily capable of running FAR faster RAM. I’m using 32gb of Ballistix Max RGB DDR4-4000 (4x8gb because I got the first kit for a steal and upgraded it later on)
