X399M Taichi + Threadripper 1900x Build Log

Case: Fractal Design Node 804
http://www.fractal-design.com/home/p...eries/node-804

PSU - 850w Seasonic


CPU: AMD Threadripper 1900x
Mainboard: ASrock x399M Taichi (mATX)
RAM 4x Gskill FlareX 3200MHz 14-14-14-34

GPU for now reuse of AMD FuryX
Storage - For now reuse of LSI 9211 and 5 ssd drives in RAID 0. M.2 drive later.








Contents of original post:
Threadripper 1900x went to acceptable price, I am about to buy a mainboard and build whole new system.

I am looking for "smaller" solution using TR4 socket, at least now. Goal is to have 4-4.2 GHz for daily use on CPU, so mATX is format I was looking for (and 3 full PCIe slots).

Regarding VRMs... Taichi has 10 capacitators with 680microfarads, Asus has 12 capacitators with 470microfarads. Mosfets are the same...

Which one you would recommend?

The traces on the Taichi are shorter from cpu to ram so that should make it easier to play with the ram. Also that one is 1DPC so it should be even easier to change stuff around.

VRMs are comparable? There is a chance I will upgrade for more cores in the future.

VRM on both is identical. Highest you should go on either is 16 cores (when doing all-core overclocking). You want the 24/32 core Threadrippers with all-core overclocks, you need the MSI MEG.

I will either stay on 1900x without any upgrade in the future (As I want to have Ryzen 7 1800x with more PCI-E lanes and more RAM bandwidth) or get 1950x. I can barely imagine multithreading beyond 8 cores to be utilized anytime soon, and games I play are barely using more threads.

Anyway, my current system is held back only by low bandwidth.

Updated first post. Any comments? More watts for PSU?

No. I have a 1950X and Titan Xp, both fully overclocked. Even with all 32 threads loaded and the GPU loaded (full system stress test load), I was pulling a maximum of about 660W from the wall. You're fine with the 850W PSU.

The 240 version has to be OK. I will need to mount it in right chamber front slot.

I used to recommend them and they perform well, but there have been increasing reports of LiqTech AIO failures lately. Might want to stay away from them.

Just checked some reports, and yes... the pumps may fail. NZXT 240 for TR4 not available around, so i guess I have to go for NH-U12S TR4-SP3 maybe with additional NF-12.

Edit: Scratch that. Local retailer just listed NZXT Kraken x52 as not compatible with TR4, which is not true.
