Danish desktop enthusiasts have built an incredible workstation based around an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X. The desktop computer was actually undergoing a thorough upgrading session in a venture labeled “Project Threadripper”. The end product looks terrific and features hardware from Corsair, Samsung, Asus, and Cooler Master.

Users from the Danish hardware community Tweak.dk have created a nifty time-lapse video showing a workstation being upgraded from nothing special into something very special. A talented builder earns his upgrading chops by skillfully stripping down the case and removing the components from the motherboard in preparation for a high-end Zen+ upgrade centered on AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 2950X.

Once the HEDT Threadripper 2950X is in position, no less than eight sticks of Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 RAM with built-in heat spreaders are inserted to make a total of 64 GB. Then it’s time for the fan, which is a huge Wraith Ripper provided by Cooler Master. This beast is so powerful it has its own armor. A seven-heatpipe array makes sure overclockers and gamers can push their Threadripper-powered system to the maximum.

With the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X and the Asus ROG Zenith Extreme motherboard taking their places, there’s also room for three M.2 NVMe SSDs (2x Corsair MP510, 1x Samsung 950 Pro), an 8 TB HDD from Western Digital, an Asus ROG GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon graphics card, and a Prime 1300 W Gold modular power supply from Seasonic. All this hardware is bundled into a Cooler Master MasterCaseH500M tower featuring tempered glass panels and a few more fans to help deal with the heat.

The end result is a beautiful orange light show on a Threadripper-powered workstation that clearly looks like it’s ready for take-off.
