What motherboard would you use for a 2970WX?
Reasons i look at the MSI MEG, it has 16VRM design and i tend to overclock really hard on cool (50~55F ambient) water. It also comes with a 16x pci-e 4 nvme card holder so i can store my videos on a raid 0 software array. for around 550$ on amazon.
Normally i am Asrock or maaaybe a gigabyte fan. I do like Asus my 7980xe is on a x299 apex. But i try and stay as far away as possible for the most part as they are really really bad about warranty support. (i bought the apex assuming i have no warranty on it)
Going the 2970wx for streaming and i know its overkill, but i also like to benchmark and tinker, will most definitely do a build video on it as well. My thought is the 6 core per die will work better with the limited bandwidth of 4 dies over Infinity fabric.
I think i will run my Vega LQ FE in it. And pick up 4 16GB sticks of 3600 cl 15,15,15 gskil ram.
For storage i am thinking a smaller optane drive like the 900 480gb as a boot drive. then 4~7 HP EX920 M.2 1TB nvme drives. And then maybe add some spinning rust for back up. altho i might just leave that for external drives.
For cooling i might just pick up a Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 to get started with. Then once i learn the board i could possibly make a custom loop, unless someone knows of a extremely good AIO for a full cpu cover solution?
PSU evga 1600w superNova T2 Titanium.
I have a extra Fractal XL R2 case here i might use for now.
Ya so ideas welcome I am a little worried about the bios and warranty support on the MEG mobo so if anyone has any insight it would be greatly appreciated!
