    It was at this very point in my last build...

    It’s the Gigabyte AIC 4x M.2 raid card - trick I learnt from thesmokingman in his build which is many time more awesome! 👍

    TRX40 owners and in particular Gigabyte

    Thanks everyone great feedback - I’ll have to look at this a bit further over the weekend. where I can take my time. Will check for the bios switch, but don’t recall one at first glance. The problem with flashing both bios, is if the bios isn’t stable, which was also pointed out above. maybe...

    Congrats. tell me again you have the Gigabyte AIC adaptor working with all four drives on a X570 board? how did you manage to allocate the 4x4x4x4 to the AIC card? and 8x to the GPU? I tried on two MSI boards x570 and had no luck - then went over to Threadripper looking great! Congrats! Henrik

    Hi Tony thanks for sharing I can understand all the financial reasons behind this. But sometimes you “the manufacturer” need to go out there and show off what you can do! Create some excitement! At the moment we have plastic tin boxes with lots of flashing lights. Which is probably great for...

    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.

    Is Windows 10 20H2 the worst windows yet?

    Late to the party here, looking at the OP, with 1000’s messages and many years spent here I am a little surprised to hear that Windows 10 is the worst MS OS ever. all the OS’s have some issues, in particular if you stray of the mainstream equipment list, one reason is a lot easier to deal with...

    A couple of questions on CPU threads and clock rate

    What is it you want to achieve? Apart from not upgrading for 5 years? i built the below to last me 10 years with the odd upgrade here and there ;) faster cpu, more cores, faster GPU, more ram, bigger and faster hard drive(s) but other then that keep it as is

    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...
