CPU: Ryzen 5950x
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Motherboard: Asus Rog Strix x-570-E
Memory: Patriot Viper 4 3600 Mhz 128GB (4x32gb)
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce RTX 3080 Gaming OC
Case: Fractal Meshify S2

Go for RX6800XT instead of RTX3080 for smart access memory feature

But the AMDs won't support NVIDIA AI Denoising, and also limit you if you want to go for a GPU based renderer. Those may or may not be something the original poster is concerned about, but could certainly be a deciding factor in picking an NVIDIA card if so :)

I prefer NVIDIA gpu, but my worry is memory, i don't sure if it is good for this configuration.

Perfect choice in everything :- ) Looks like you have done your research well!

Optional notes:
- Tom is correct, for CGI artist, nVidia has us locked because of CUDA & Optix dependent software. The new AMD cards are fantastic value due to having 16GB of VRAM which is super useful for viewport management (highres texture visible, multiple 3dsMax instances open at same time,etc..) but real-time Optix Denoiser is far too valuable.

- Strix-E X570 is great board. I have one too ;- ). You could alternatively go for X550 if you don't want active chipset fan.
My is super silent.. but I use blower GPUs so this area is not hot. With AIB GPUs (Gigabyte, MSI, Asus,...) it will be different.

- If you are from US or somewhere where FE cards are available, I would go for FE version. It outputs 1/3 to 2/5 of heat directly out of case which is pretty useful for CPU-heavy workstation.

If you have time and can wait the only thing I would recommend is AIO GPU, Some people like blowers better. But if you need the system now then AIO is not an option. I've had blowers and they create more heat inside and especially outside the case.  I found that moving to an AIO reduced heat, especially reduced the heat of the card itself, and can work at 100% for days without throttling.

Juraj, what's your take on AIO vs Blowers?

Either way it's a great configuration.

I am bit confused what you meant here :- ).

Inside case? Blower cards don't create any heat inside case because they blow it outside.

Inside the GPU itself? Like running hotter? They do usually run slightly hotter and lot more louder. That is mostly issue in gaming with power spikes from heavy turbo boost. It's not uncommon to lower the power envelope by 10perc. (Quadro cards are already more conservative here, i.e 250W vs 300W+)

Just one note on heat, because I often see it on Reddit frequently: Hot card doesn't produce more heat. It produces the same amount of heat, it's only transfered outside faster. If the card is 300W, it will produce 300W of heat, regardless if it's 60c or 90c degree hot (voltage does change based on heat though).

AIO GPU (I only know about EVGA, and few AMDs, does anyone else make them?) is pretty good idea if you can place the radiator as exhaust, effectively making the card into more silent blower. But they're pretty expensive (judging from EVGA 3090, the AIO version is like 300+ more expensive...bit too much).

If you only use GPU for viewport and Optix denoising, none of it matters much since it has low GPU utilization.

I am big fan of Ampere Founder Edition cards from nVidia. They are semi-blower, the best of both worlds. It particularly works great for the massive 3090. The AIB can be slightly cooler but are worse for powerful CPUs cooled by air tower. Gamers don't need to care, but if you have 80c hot Threadripper, every bit of case air improvement flow helps.

Yes GPU it self, and air blown out of the case.  The room I was in would heat up to something terrible with the blower cards. The AIO would stay cool, not throttle, and the room would not heat up nearly as much.  EVGA, MSI, and I think another makes AIO cards.  The radiators were always set as exhaust. AIO seemed to be the best bet for high use GPU or Multi GPU situations like GPU rendering.  Just what I have experienced.

Thanks Juraj, unfortunately i live in Spain so i think that is difficult find a FE GPU and probably i'll go for the x570. I work with music so some loud in fan is not a problem haha

Yeah I don't think any of us will have much chance to buy FE until February/March with exception of few pieces here and there to UK/Netherlands/Germany.

Watch out on the cooler/mobo combo. It fits but you need to mount the rear fan further up the heatsink due to the size of the I/O Block

Hi ! I'm thinking in improve my actual pc ( i7-4770k ) and i was reading a lot and finally this is my configuration, what do you think ? Do i need change something ?

CPU: Ryzen 5950x
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Motherboard: Asus Rog Strix x-570-E
Memory: Patriot Viper 4 3600 Mhz 128GB (4x32gb)
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce RTX 3080 Gaming OC
Case: Fractal Meshify S2
PSU: Seasonic Focus +1000 ( thinking in add another gpu in a future )

Hi guys!
I am buying almost the same PC spec with a little change - 2x32GB RAM sticks instead of 4x16GB.
I know that there will be problem with Noctua and height of RAM sticks.
Especially with 32GB sticks.
I am looking for 3600MHz memory and I found that perfect fit -  https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Memory/VENGEANCE-LPX/p/CMK64GX4M2D3600C18
The problem is that they are almost out of stock which means overpriced I guess...
Did you guys maybe had same problem?
I am thinking about changing to AIO and choosing sticks which I want.
PS. I don't like LED

Peace
Marcin

All 3600/CL18 are mostly the same dies from Hynix, so it doesn't matter if you buy Corsair, G.Skill or Patriot, you will get the same memory. Only exception is Crucial, which is using their own Micron dies. The Crucial is also more expensive but also higher quality and better AMD compatibility (they even have higher end 3600/CL16 32GB Modules, but they are hard to get).

Patriot Viper, Crucial Ballistix, etc. are all pretty low profile.

Also, you can get Noctua NH-D15S, which has better memory clearance. But yes you can also get AIO.

BTW the above poster is using 4x32, not 4x16. Those Patriot modules should fit just fine, perhaps even with regular older D15.

I can't recommend the D15S enough. In my case, it was a matter of necessity, as there just wasn't enough room. But whatever the case it delivers surprisingly similar performance to the one with two fans.
