Design Rationale

  • The Threadripper Pro 5995WX gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for general use, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, liquid cooling with a 360mm cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 128GB of RAM, and wanted ECC.
  • The customer wanted a 1TB NVME OS drive and 4TB NVME main storage drive.
  • The RTX 4090 worked best for the customers immediate needs, and swapping out GPUs for an RTX 6000 ADA in the future to allow for LED walls was easy to do.
  • While the overall design of the build meant that an 1200W power supply was recommended, the customer opted for a 1600W to allow for extra GPUs in the future.
  • We used our 5U server case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
