Ryzen 3600, hyper 212 black
Msi 2060 super
32 gb 3200 ddr4 lpx vengance
970 pro nvme 500gb
2x 2tb firecuda hdd
Msi x570 gaming plus mobo

Heads up for anyone else looking at getting a 2060 super, look for 8+6 power delivery, my 2060 is power limited to 1950 core +400 memory. It would have a lot more oomph with more power available. My card caps at 185 TDP, it can't pull any more without a sketchy bios update.

CASE:
Repurposed "Cheese Grater" 2012 Mac Pro.

INSIDE:

MB:

Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero Z390

PROCESSOR:
Intel Core i9-9900K 5GHz

RAM:
64GB CXPG Spectrix D41, 3800MHz (4x16GB)

GFX:
Gigabyte RX 5700 XT 8GB

SSD:
2x Samsung 1TB 860 EVO

HDD (SATA):
2x WD BLACK 6TB

HDD (USB3):
4x WD ELEMENTS DESKTOP 6TB

OPTICAL:
2x LG BH16NS40 16x SATA Internal BDRW

OS:
Windows 10 Pro / MacOS Mojave

Edit, it took a bit of messing about, and the inside looks a bit horrific if cables give you nightmares, although they are all tied well, but with the door on it looks stock, thanks to male to male extender cables for all the USB, the PSU, the HDMI, the DV etc, as I had to put the motherboard close to the front and a real Mac Pro has it wedged in the back, Didn't do the whole machine cut the back of the case thing out, because I don't have the skill or the tools, but everything fits into the relevant port on the back, admittedly with little 6" or 12" extensions from the MB, but on the outside you would not know it's a Hackintosh/Win 10 beast unless you really looked hard.

Even used the HDD mountings from an old G5 just to fit my extra HDDs in there, and changed the FW ports at the front to be USB 3, and you can't tell because I was very meticulous.

I built it a few years ago and its still runs everything pretty well, the LG Monitor was the last thing I got for it and made a huge difference I found. First thing I think I'll upgrade is the CPU but I'm in no rush.
What I love about how CPU's have been since the original i3/i5/i7 is you can still use a CPU from 2012 (3570k in my case for example on my other build with a 660Ti, still fast enough for just normal things and most games at medium or even high... 16gb DDR3 and a 480Gb SSD). It's still great and pretty fast 8 years later. Imagine saying that in the Pentium and even in the Core era. I remember the difference between my 64MB Celeron 300 and my P3 500 256MB was night and day... It used to take up to a minute to load some MAME roms back in the day, and once I upgraded, it was instant, and no lag...

I built something beastly to mess with big datasets

AMD Epyc 7702P
Asrock EPYCD8/2T
256 GB ECC 2666
4 x 1TB Sabrent rocket nvme's (raid0/luks/lvm/xfs)
Radeon FE + 2080 Ti
Corsair HX1200 PSU
Ubuntu 20.04

The AMD does OpenCL and runs my desktop, the nvidia does CUDA and can be passed through to vms when I trick the nvidia drivers into not noticing. Windows 10 with looking glass is SO smooth, 100hz native in a window. It's all air cooled with a noctua nh-u14s (threadripper version) but the GPU's could really use liquid cooling especially if I add a third for more flops

1496 ram? Is speccy only reading the single rate, or am I missing something?
20200417_111310.jpg
Ryzen 5 3600
MSI RTX 2060 super ventus oc gp
MSI Gaming Plus x570
32 gb vengeance lpx ddr4@3200
Rmx 850w modular psu
Cablemod Full replacement kit
Samsung 970 pro 500gb nvme
2x firecuda 2 tb 5400 rpm hdd hybrid
Hyper 212 black
3 ML120 pro rgb
1 ML140 pro rgb
2 SP140 pro rgb
H510i

Eta; watch MSI's RTX lines if you are getting cheap models. The ventus models have lower power limits than even FE cards. I'm happy, except for the fact that between my last build and this one, every fucking soyboy and his favorite tittystreamer has gotten a NZXT case.

Main computer, built during the holidays in a private contest.

CASE:
Corsair Carbide 500r

PSU:
Rosewell Capstone 850Watt 80+Gold PSU.

MB:
MSI X570 A-PRO
Note: Got it on sale for $125 during the holidays

PROCESSOR:
Ryzen 3600

CPU COOLER:
Modified Hyper T2 Running Dual 92mm Fans.
Reason: I am not a fan of using large chunks of metal and anchoring them to the motherboard. I used to repair motherboards back in the 90's when the repair cost started at $800. Because motherboards that were being repaired were at the 2 grand range. I've seen what happens when a mother board delaminates due to heat/pressure.

RAM:
32 GB G.Skill Flare X DDR4 3200 Timings 14-14-14-34
Note: Because of the low timings due to testing it was equal or better to most PC 3600 with timings of CAS of 16 or higher. It was also on sale at the time of purchase.

GFX:
VisionTek RX 5700 8GB
Note: An excellent RX 5700 reference card for the price I purchased (279). I am running on 1440p setting and my main Game Overwatch am getting 160fpm on their high settings.

SSD:
6x Samsung 500GB 860 EVO

HDD (SATA):
5x WD 2TB Enterprise with 256 on HDD cache

OPTICAL:
1x LG BH16NS40 16x SATA Internal BDRW

OTHER:
1x ICY DOCK MB524SP 4X Trayless Hot Swap Ext 5.25" Bays
2x ICY DOCK MB795SP-B Trayless Hot Swap 2.5 and 3.5 Docking Bays.

OS:
2x Windows 10 Pro
2x Windows 7 Pro
2x Zorin Linux 15.2

Reason: I always have an absolute clean version on on hand just in case. I also am able to hot swap everything so there is no need to open up the case every time I need to change a SDD/HDD.

Note: The purpose of this build was a private forum contest to build a solid, upgradeable rig for around $900.00 during the 2019 holiday season. I purchased all components through Amazon. EBay and NewEgg respectively.

Since then I have added 5 860 EVO's, 4 WD 2TB, 16GB of Ram and the 4x SSD trays later in 2020 when I saw some sales.

Since 1/2020 the costs of building any rig went up drastically. And example would be my Rosewell PSU which cost me $76. The same PSU now will cost $140 on NewEgg. The case was a huge score for me as I was able to pick up a "open" box of the 500r for $75. It was old stock and was brand new but since they opened up to check on it I got a discount.


Man I feel sorry for people trying to upgrade now. It feels like 2016 over again.

My obelisk of doom. I built this one in early 2017 and aside from some bullshit with BSODs caused by shitty drivers a couple years ago, it's served flawlessly the entire time.


CASE:
Corsair Obsidian 900D

PSU:
EVGA SuperNOVA T2 1600W
Yes, this is more wattage than necessary, but this is an extremely efficient PSU and doesn't mind being under-loaded.

MOBO:
Asus Rampage V Edition 10

CPU:
Intel Core i7-6950X

COOLING:
Single-Loop water with clear acrylic lines, EKWB-Top Laing D5 pump, EKWB reservoir, EKWB fittings, EKWB CPU/Chipset Monoblock, EKWB waterblocks and backplates for GPUs, 280mm and 480mm radiators, and a number of Noctua iPPC 140mm and 120mm cooling fans controlled with an NZXT Sentry Mix 2 slider.

RAM:
128GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4-2666 (8x 16GB)

GPU:
2x Nvidia Titan X Pascal (Two-Way SLI)

SSD:
2x 2TB Samsung 850 Pro SATA
1x 2TB Samsung 860 Pro SATA
1x 512GB Samsung 950 Pro M.2

OPTICAL:
2x Pioneer BDR-209D Blu-ray Writer

Input Devices:
Logitech MX518, Topre Realforce R2

Monitor:
Acer Predator XB321HK 32" 4K panel
This thing fucking sucks. It has a periodic flicker and sometimes "crashes" so badly it won't power on from standby and needs to be unplugged and plugged back in. It inherits these problems from the 32" BenQ panel that sits inside the fancy "gamer" housing.

OS:
Windows 10 Pro

It's not the specs on your desk, it's what feels right to you.
