I’m building my first computer and it’s a daunting prospect since I’ve only messed around with some cheap old HP desktop clients previously.
My build is loosely based on Wendell’s advice though maybe I’ve made some mistakes.
- ASROCK Fatal1ty X399 Professional Gaming
- AMD Threadripper 2950X
- Radeon VII
- G. Skill Flare X 2933MHz 4 x 16GB
- Corsair H100i Platinum AIO
- Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVME M.2, 1TB
- EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2, 80+ Platinum 1200W
- Rosewill RSV-L4000 4U Rackmount Server Case 8 internal bays 7 fans.
- LG 32UD59-B 32" 4K UHD LED
I’m currently waiting for the delivery of a 16GB Kingston USB for installations and Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Grease Paste.
I’m almost certain I’ll be buying a Wacom Cintiq Pro (non touch screen)
I’m a bit concerned that the M2 Samsung EVO 970 isn’t listed in support for that mobo but then the mobo came out in 2017 and that M2 came out just in January of 2019.
Also I’m deeply intrigued by Wendell talking about installing Linux Mint on it then running VMWare 15 and it’s pass through capabilities to run Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Workstation. I’ll really need to know it I can install drivers for that Cintiq and do a pass through to the USB or USB-C it’s plugged into. Wendell claims that this setup is so efficient I’d only lose one CPU cycle for a virtual machine…
So this thread will be all the problems a more or less novice will have in trying to assemble this expensive stuff. And I really need it bad. I am a 3d Graphics junky, I desperately need my fix.
Matching the System Panel plugs of that Rosewill server case to the System Panel header of my ASRock Fatal1ty Pro Gaming x399 mobo.
Now on the Reset wires, I know Green is Ground (-) and Black is power (+) but the Power wires, white and red…
yes I know, i’m a hopeless tard…but what exactly goes where? Please if you can spell this out for me exactly…
The first question of many I’m sure…
