    Raid 0 - we all know hard drives die and will but would you do if you did not care ?

    ng4ever how many drives are you thinking of using? if you want redundancy then you need to look at a different raid setup that is a NO to your question above. You need to start over again if you pull a disk/drive describe your intended setup or what gear you have to play with

    Any of these 1000W+ PSUs any good?

    I would go for the larger units if $$$ isn’t an issue corsair, evga would also have some contenders good luck - ohh by the way, are you planning to have anything else in terms of PCIE cards? You only have 24-lanes on the chipset and CPU series, you need to look at Threadripper if you want more...

    Nice Work on the graphics, Tell us why you do not like Windows 10 - you may have a very valid reason, in the end you choose what OS you want to use. not liking or liking is your choice - expect people to have a difference in opinion.

    AMD MoBo to support Dual 3090?

    IceCaveMan exciting project! what is your budget and timeline? No point in dreaming about something that isn’t available within your timeframe. apologise but you seem confused about what you want/need (no offence intended). Perhaps specify what you want to archive with your setup compared to...

    AMD Threadripper 3970X Successor

    I agree with those who have stepped up to the Threadripper platform due to the extra pcie lanes, until I start to do rendering the CPU isn’t the key to this. Hopefully in years to come the 64 core will drop as my need goes up. sure it would have been nice to have had a lower price entry point...
