Hello to community,

I'm planning to build a new workstation in order to work with Cinema 4D and Corona Renderer, for archviz purposes.

Im currently working on on my good (but vintage !) 4930k /1070ti / 32gb ram computer, and need to have a more powerful workstation for projects growing in size & complexity.

My current workflow is modelling the arch part on Sketchup, adding assets, trees, & details on C4D, and rendering on Corona.

Below is the list of components i'm wanting to assemble:

PROCESSOR :
AMD - Ryzen 9 5950X - 3,4/4,9 GHz OR AMD or AMD Threadripper 3960X

MOTHERBOARD:
Asus - AMD X570 TUF GAMING PLUS - ATX or Gigabyte x570 AORUS Elite ATX / (Or S version)

GRAPHICS:
Msi - GeForce RTX 3080 VENTUS 3X PLUS 10G OC LHR or ASUS ROG STRIX NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 V2 OC Edition (or any 3080 available depending prices ( Or maybe a less powerfull GC, 3070 or 3070TI if i go for Threadripper 3960x)

MEMORY:
Kingston FURY Beast 128GB (4x32GB) 3200MHz DDR4 CL16 / KF432C16BBK4/128 or Corsair - Vengeance RGB PRO Series 64 Go (2x 32 Go) DDR4 3200 MHz CL16 or Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 128 Go (4x32 Go) DDR4 3600 (PC4-28800) C18 or Patriot Memory 128 gb (but can't fin 3600 CL18 on Patiot ?)- I dont know what to choose between 3200 CL16 or 3600 CL18,  i have read they should perform the same, any idea ? ( Maybe i'd go for only 64gb if i go for the Threadripper)

POWER :
Corsair RM850x (Modular 850 Watt, 80 PLUS Gold)

CASE:
Be Quiet! ATX Silent Base 601 (Really like the look, but is that a wise choice ?)

CPU Cooler :

Noctua NH-D15 or Be Quiet ! be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 or ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 280 or Corsair Hydro 115i RGB Platinum, 280mm

SSD 1:
Samsung SSD 870 EVO, 1 To (For C: and programs)

SSD2 :
Samsung SSD 870 EVO, 1 To (For current projects & stored assets)

- I'm planning to buy all the components, and make it assemble in a local shop, maybe with a little overclocking for the CPU made buy the shop if i stick with the 5960x. Do you think it is safe for a long term usage ? Shoul I choose air or watercooling if i ask for overclocking ?

- I'm not sure if I should go for the 3960x and a less powerfull graphic card, or go for the 5950x an a 3080. As i am working with Sketchup for arch modelling I often experience slow viewport performance on C4D with large projects, where there is a lot of nested compononents & instances (I have read C4D dont handle many objects vey well, and i hope it will get smoother with a more powerful GC)... But 3960x seems 25% faster on renders, which makes me hesitate a lot.

I would be glad to read your comments !

Thank you !

Jacques.
