Hope you all enjoy!!

This build took me 1 year and 4 months in total. The amount of frustration, pain, tears, and sweat was unreal. But all of that is now gone. I'm quite happy with how this one turned out.

This theme struck me one day when I was sitting in an office job. I went through many sketches but this one stood out the most. I wanted a "simple design" but elevated to another level. It took me about 3 months to finally settle on a design where I truly liked. Reasons, why this build was taking so long, were because I had to wait for waterblocks, distroplate. and planning out my shots to make the timelapse enjoyable.

The goal of this build is to make myself happy with something unique.

-Some may ask why did I went with the 1950x, but keep in mind that this project took me over a year to complete. I had already planned out the components from last year so that is what I am working with.

-I had also gone with this platform because of a friend of mine had made fun that I was always on DUAL channel. I agreed that Quad Channel looks way better.... not a great reason but... yeah!

I am on the road on wanting to become a pro modder/builder. I started the adventure of building PCs in 10th grade, and I developed a passion for it. Now 3 years have passed and I still have that feeling, seeing it boots with all the lightings truly amazed me. I'm currently in my first year of college, studying Mechanical Engineering at 18 years old. I want to show people a computer can be whatever you make it be in terms of looks. This project has made me pulling an all-nighter, sweats from all the modding (Cutout for the 24 pins to get that perfect 90-degree arc and front/top panels for airflow since I have my fans configure outside of the case, besides the top)

Challenges throughout the build:

-Making the GPU Cables to get that nice arc (Hardest part of the build, not gonna lie... believe it or not)

-Leaked Testing

-Measuring out where to drill holes for the case cable comb since I did not have a good tool for preparing

-Making split cables, this is the first time ever in my life that I've attempted making split cables, which is required for the 24 pin (It wasn't so bad after all, I actually enjoyed it)

Hopefully, this build could possibly get me recognized by companies out there!

Wait can you game on a threadripper ?

Nicely done!!! Share some temps. Using a program like HWinfo and Prime95, what is your max Tdie (not Tctl) temp after running Prime 95 for at least 1/2 hour? Make sure to record your ambient temp in the room while the test is running.

Also, any issues on getting memory to run at 3200 with all DIMM slots occupied?

Can I ask what distro plate is that? I am doing a similar build (in the sense of me doing it in the evolv X), and I love what you did with the distro plate.

This is a custom distroplate that I designed myself, thank you for the compliment!

Is this a gaming build or a workstation build?

If it is a gaming build, quad channel makes no difference, and the higher IPC, clock speed, pcie gen 4 support, and lower TDP of Ryzen 3rd gen would be much more important than quad channel memory. The monstrous gpu on this rig is going to be severely bottlenecked by the cpu in most games.

If it is a professional build, why the 2080 Ti? Radeon VII, Radeon Pro, and RTX Quadros offer MUCH better performance in professional workloads.

According to the bottleneck calculator this is only 1.58% bottleneck

Look it up on the internet. The bottleneck calculator is not legitimate. Besides, one thing can bottleneck something else in certain workloads but not in others.

For example, a shiny new EPYC processor might work great with a high-performance gpu in a compute server, but you would be better off gaming with a chromebook. On the other hand, a high-performance gaming CPUs like intel's (overpriced and obselete) Core i9-9900KS works great with that 2080 Ti in Gaming, but that lead melts away quickly when it gets butchered by a lower clocked 32-core Threadripper in workstation tasks.
