Hi, i am finally thinking about building myself new pc and have something like this in mind.
CPU: Ryzen 7 2700X
Motherboard: ASRock - X470 Taichi
Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3466
Storage: Seagate - IronWolf 2 TB 3.5" 5900RPM x4
Video Card: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Video Card: Asus 970 Strix
Case: Fractal Design - Define R6
Power Supply: SeaSonic - Snow Silent 750 W 80+
I am thinking about changing ram to some hight speed ECC but can’t find concrete proof if ryzen 2700x/taichi supports it or some nice site to see what is out there
I am also considering 280 size water cooling
I want the pc to do these things:
- Relatively silent
- Media storage
- Plex/stuff server
- Docker/Virtual machine images for development
- Win10 with GPU passthought for some gaming
Host would run on Manjaro with zfs 10 raid.
My main worry is that spinning drives could be to slow for gaming and zfs arc woudn’t compensate for it.
So what do you think. Am I completely insane and should drop it or it could work.
What could be improved? Some hardware access may be limited since i don’t live in big country
