Nice AMD build, I really like that Corsair case which is very similar to my 750D

Im basically building a system with the following

I9 7980 ex processor

asus x299 motherboard

4 x 16gb cosair vengeance ddr4 memory with option of updating to 128gb

12gb nvidia titan xp graphics card

10tb seagate barracuda pro secondary hard drive

what primary ssd would be suitable as a systems drive

what case would be ideal for this set up?

Do i need any additional cooling? and what?

i know computer basics but a newbie at everything

so i would really appreciate all the help and advice anyone can offer please.

this will be an expensive system so want to be comfortable with all the parts and decisions first.

Also if you think i should use something different and why.

Anything else i should add? Was thinking of the titan v but was told it was not worth considering.

my previous computer was very unstable and though fast was noisy and had alot of the blue sceen of death

i appreciate your time and advice

I think Toby got all of it down. Let us know what the machine is used for, but if you're using going all out and getting the best hardware money can buy, so be it.

CPU coolers I suggest getting something like the Corsair Hydro series AIO liquid coolers, great cooling capacity for overclocking and silence or anything in between. I personally have the H115i

Primany drive without a doubt you will need a SSD, min 240GB depending on your usage. But if you're a content creator I would suggest getting M.2 nVme drives, they are more expensive per GB, but you will benefit from your day to day workflow. On the other hand, Gaming or juse general usage SATA-based SSDs will do.

Personally I still perfer a full-tower case with lotsa of 140mm fans. I suggest checking out Corsair, NZXT or Phantek's offerings for cases.

I pop in here once a while, and see what's up.

How you guys are doing well.

We need to recruit new members to the team.

Should have a folding contest :tongue:

We also almost hit 4 million PPD yesterday, Highest I've seen we have done so far :cool:


Hothardware Folding team did 51 million points this past month and counting!
AMD Ryzen has been a long-await kick we needed in the industry.
I should run it just for fun 😃
That's awesome. Welcome!

I need more power!!!!!!!

Titan X should be back up Monday or Tues :cool:
