Desktop PC enthusiast builds monster rig with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, two Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards, and 47 case fans
There are plenty of amazing desktop PC builds out there, but there can’t be too many rigs that can compete with this one. A Reddit user called Roxaduh has been discussing the battlestation build in a thread that is heavily populated with comments from awestruck PC owners. Even though the rig is actually unfinished, it looks incredible (full image below) and if the cooling solution is effective the owner should enjoy some ridiculously high game frame rates and some benchmark destroying.
According to the builder, the rig has no less than a 64-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X at the controls, which immediately sticks around US$4,000 on the bill for this machine. Tag on two EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 cards at over US$1,400 each and an Intel Optane 900 480 GB SSD for US$600 or so then you can see this build would have cost well over US$10,000. One commentator suggested maybe even over US$15,000, which is understandable when you include the 128 GB G.SKILL Trident Z Neo DDR4 3200 MHz RAM (US$659.99) and the 47 case fans, consisting of 19x Corsair HD140 fans (US$40-70 each depending on the model) and 28x Corsair ML140 Pro fans (US$40-100 each depending on the model).
The monster desktop PC features an Asus ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha motherboard and a hard drive in the form of a 2 TB Corsair MP600. The expensive build is stuffed to the brim with waterblocks, RGB lighting, fan hubs, and four Swiftech MCP655-B liquid cooling system pumps. An EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 T2 is in charge of providing power to this insane collection of powerful components. Hopefully, when Roxaduh completes the build, there will be further images and some benchmark demonstrations to show what a US$15,000 (give or take) desktop PC/battlestation can deliver.
