So after finally getting sick of using my Threadripper build for everything, I decided to take my old parts get some new and used parts and assemble a new machine purely for my entertainment needs.

Part Reviews


Still kicking with 4.5 ghz @ 1.35v that droops to 1.32 under heavy loads

CPU Cooler

Does a remarkable job cooling, just wish I could've kept it sideways


No problems, easy overclocking and bios updates


Really fast memory and saves me from having to cluster even more cables in my build


So far so good, I bought this part used, so only time will tell if I got a good deal on this


Lots of space and still runs well even with over 40tb written on it and running continuously for 4 years in an enterprise space

Video Card

Better than RTX that's for sure


Best mid-tower case I've ever bought. This particular one I also bought used, and the front panel was completely broken, I was able to reattach with zip ties. I'm planning on buying another front panel from the German parts reseller for Fractal.

Power Supply

Lightweight, quiet, sleek and efficient. The fan doesn't even turn on during max load!

Optical Drive

Already ripped more than 60 bluray both 1080p and 4k discs on here and is still going strong.

Case Fan

Really performant and quiet spare fan that works well my noctua heatsink

I am glad you finally got a closed off case. The cable management in that test bench was just awful.
