Threadripper 3d build advice


I'm building a sort of entry level workstation with some rendering power, Ill be using it for 3d modelling, rendering, illustration.

I'm hardware-naive as i work usually just on the software side, so i did some research to put this together but i might very well be missing the point on some parts!

most of the rendering is usually done on the GPU but since threadripper is such good bang for buck i tought it would be a good idea to have a lot of cores added! afterall there are some case scenarios where you need to render on cpu and or do some video editing. 


Here is my parts list from my local shop (based in switzerland): https://www.digitec.ch/en/ShopList/Show?listmode=true&shopListId=B5874D320B2411F1FDDE62007D69A62D#listhead

looks good man, only thing i would say is maybe look at adding something like a samsung 850 pro sata based drive as a scratch disk for your projects. if your working with big projects having them run off your hard drive may slow them down and running off your m.2 drive could fill your m.2 fast and slow it down over time as well. but otherwise you should be good just make sure to get a good cpu cooler that can keep your cpu at max for a while.
