Hi

I'm planing to build a new 3990X workstation, but I'm not sure which board and RAM I should choose for that.
It's only for CPU rendering, I don't have any plans to do GPU rendering, so I need just a board which works fine with 3990X.

As example, AsRock Creator costs almost half the price of Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme or Asus ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha.
But is it good enough for 3990X? Could the heat sink be problematic?
Many here used Gigabyte Aorus Master, but this isn't available right now. (at leas where I live)

And what would be your suggestion for a 128 GB RAM setup?
Would G.Skill Trident Z Neo 4x, 32 GB, DDR4-3200 do its job?
For both, I don't want to pay more than necessary, I don't want to catch the last percentage, just a stable build :)

Thanks very much for your suggestions!

At 3,7ghz my average rays drop from 12,800 to 11,600.
Thats around 10% difference. For much lower temperature and power consumption seems very reasonable. But somehow I cannot stand this 10% slower speed. Not effectively but OCD related.

OK so I've found a simple setting to cure most of the temperature "problems". Not really problems but you know what I mean :)

So I have PBO set to AUTO which should mean its OFF from what I understand but that clearly isn't the case. If I go under the PBO settings and set the temperature limit (its called something different, can't miss it though) to a custom of say 70 degrees... Well, the CPU won't go over 70c.

It is that simple.

So now I'm getting ~3.9ghz on all cores and I retain a solid 4.3ghz/4.4ghz single core turbo - at least thats what I can monitor from Windows. The rendering speed according to the benchmark is the same as it was with PBO off, maybe sometimes falling behind by 1 second (29s -> 30s).

The temps rarely if ever go above 70c. They go above because my fan curves need a second or two to kick in high speeds :) Rendering over night is constantly at 70c.

Hope that helps :)

That sound great Nejc. Will try it. Thanks a lot .

All TRX40 motherboard are good this generation, they all work even for 3990X. So you can buy the cheapest you can get, you'll be good. Price point dictates the features, if you don't need those (like dual 10gbit), don't pay more.

Get 4x32 3600 Memory, it will 90perc. work, at worst, it will run 3466, etc.. There shouldn't be much price difference. The G.Skill kits are very good and have well binned Hynix chips.

MOBO: Asus ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha X399
CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950x (16-core, ~3.8Ghz)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 64GB (4x16GB) DDR4 3200 C16

I want to upgrade my system to 128Gb RAM.
Can I add two sets (four sticks) of Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3200 C16 into the remaining DIMM sockets to achieve 128Gb memory, or is that not recommended?

Any of you guys running the Silverstone IceGem 360? AIO for 3990x?

Interesting thing. Looks like almost no reviews although it has been out since January?

Yeah, that's why I was wondering, cannot find much on it, but looks like something we have been waiting for.

I’m building a threadripper 3970x workstation using a CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML360 trx40 edition cooler - this one covers the whole chip. I can report back some temps if anyone is interested. It’ll be done next weekend.
Asus Prime trx40
128gb (4x32gb) 3600 vengeance
3970x
rtx 3070

Yes, that would be great to hear how well it works.

CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML360 trx40 doesn't cover the full heatspreader outside of the extended copper coldplate. The waterjet is still only in circular middle.
So it's better than no-cover AIO, but not at all like true full cover coolers.

But this is not issue for 3960X & 3970X because their layouts feature 3 or 4 dies in the middle. So this actually works quite well.
It's only the 3990X (and previously 2990WX) which require true full heat-spreader for even heat transfer.

Apparently someone got 2x 3995wx to run on a epyc dual socket motherboard.
