This is my 'Show Piece' build for a small business. The system is mostly assembled with all components installed.
USE: Video Editing/Photo Editing/Blender/Light Gaming
NOTES: The front panel was damaged by FedEx in delivery. Waiting on my claim to be resolved; this is what I have so far.
Great all around HEDT Desktop CPU when release. When fitted with an appropriate cooler this is/was a workhorse. At the time of writing, I believe this can be outperformed in synthetic benchmarks by a Ryzen 3700X.
This is a revision of the Liqtech TR4 cooler, which was in my original build. I had to RMA it because I saw my cpu temps spiking under minimal load. Light photo editing was causing the fans and pump to increase beyond 60%. This pump is great. Temps are around 70C under load and fan/pump noise is tolerable.
There is no other board for the 1st & 2nd Gen Threadripper processors. Only drawback, 10Gb NIC was a card and not integrated into the i/o panel. Not that much of a drawback considering if the NIC failed you wouldn't have to RMA the whole board.
Very good DIMMs. I could only get them to 2933 on the Zenith Extreme motherboard for my 1950X.
A very nice case. Airflow isn't as good as it's little brother (View 71); but, the ability to add so many fans and radiators is a great compensatory feature. I would definitely find a stand (not a desk) to put this case on once the system is built. Otherwise, you won't be able to reach the i/o on the top, unless you're 6ft tall.
The good: very little ripple. quiet in ECO mode. Heavy gauge power cable for insulation.
The bad: ECO mode switch/labeling is upside down.
The ugly: The power cable is proprietary.
