Thanks do you know if the motherboard power delivery is good enough and will the kraken coolers water block will fully cover the cpu (some coolers don't completley cover it)? Also is 3600mhz ram worth it? Thanks!

the kraken will not fully cover the cpu but, if you need to know how to cool the 3970X with an AIO like kraken watch this vid from JayzTwoCents : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lb2ad-lp53I :)

Motherboard power delivery is definetly good enough. Kraken coolers work, although at this budget you may as well go the custom cooling loop path for best cooling. 3600MHz RAM will increase performance, but currently all of the kits are too expensive. I would say double the RAM > increasing RAM frequency by 400MHz.

For custom cooling what brands do you think are the best, ekwb, hardware labs, alpha cool?

Is it even worth it? I was thinking of a noctua air cooler or aio.

  • 12 days ago

AIO is very good, custom cooling is just a suggestion. For Threadripper AIO is minimum. I'm not sure the temps with X72, but I think it's fine.

In a nutshell:

Noctua - May struggle to cool Threadripper

AIO - Good

Custom - Amazing, but entirely optional

I reccommend EKWB, they have really high quality products. Their custom loop building tool is also very useful.

Ok is it worth it? If so I was thinking of using like two 360mm rads or one 280mm and one 360mm.

The new TR chips don’t have the best gaming performance. The 3900x will deliver great performance in both games and productivity.

Where in the name of everything good did those guys get their info? Skip to 5:34 in this video. They tested it THEMSELVES and both Threadrippers lost to the 9900ks and/or the 3950x in every occasion. https://youtu.be/a8apEJ5Zt2s

you don't know Hardware Unboxed? it's their website, they do more benchmarks and hardware tests than linus, also the results may change from a test bench setup to another.

Mmmm idk. I still don’t think it’s worth it to spend $2000 on a CPU when it could be better spend on more things for gaming, like a better GPU, RAM, SSD, you get the idea. He did say he was mainly doing gaming, and development purposes would be a side thing. I just don’t see the reason to choose a threadripper.

The treadripper can't game unless it is a VULKAN game!

That's a bit too much storage but if I hot rid of some would a ryzen 9 3950x be good enough? Thanks for the help!

Yeah, absolutely! I only chose the 3900x because the 3950x isn’t on the market in a lot of places. I was just using the most out of the budget, that’s all.

This build is already ridiculous. You don't need to spend 5k on a PC.

Anyway, basically just ROG Strix all the things. Enjoy man!

  • 12 days ago

Yeah I know I don't need to spend 5k I just want it to last a while and render time is money. Also would going with a quadro or a titan be worth it? Thanks for the list!

  • 12 days ago

Yeah I get it.

Regarding the Titan or Quadro - no. Spending 2.5k+ on just the GPU is pointless for this use case. Those cards are meant for intense, long periods of very compute-intensive tasks, such as machine learning. That's why they have 20gb+ of VRAM. Also, as a side note, they suck for gaming. The 2080ti will probably outperform them in that regard.

You could add a second 2080ti if you really want to, but it won't increase performance by very much or at all save a few very optimized games/programs. People use 2 2080ti's more for the "street cred" than the actual benefit, lol.

Actually the Titan will outperform the 2080 Ti

  • 12 days ago
  • 1 point

In some situations (workloads like machine learning or perhaps editing 8k footage) the Titan will outperform the 2080ti by perhaps 8-12%; this is mostly due to the extra VRAM the Titan has. However, for gaming, which the 2080ti is optimized for, I'm almost 100% certain that the 2080ti will outperform the Titan. I guess I could be wrong but there's also the fact that you're paying 250% of the price for 8-12% more performance.

In many workloads the Titan RTX is a lifesaver, I'm feeling that the Quadros and Titans get too much hate because everyone thinks about gaming performance. Gaming isn't everything!
