Decided it's finally time to replace my old rig after 5-6 years. I will continue update this thread later, just bunch of images for now.

 

Build Parts:

CPU: AMD Threadripper 1950x (Paid: $666.2   MSRP: $999.99)

 

Motherboard: Asus ROG Zenith Extreme ($389 MSRP $550)

 

RAM: 32GB  G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 3200 mhz CL14 ($545)

 

GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti (Have not purchase yet).

I need to choose my purchase timing carefully, so I can do EVGA 90 days set up program for the next gen GPU. 

 

Case: Thermaltake Tower 900 ($219 MSRP $250)

 

Storage: Samsung EVO 860 1TB ($228 MSRP ~$270)

 

PSU: EVGA P2 1000 ($237 MSRP $279)

 

Cooling: Custom liquid cooling parts

Some challenges I faced so far:

1) Reservoir mounting: can't find vertical mounting brackets that would support mine as far as I know of

2) Wire management

 

 

 

 

5.29.18 (added pricing)

Still trying to figure out reservoir mounting. Currently using zip ties to hold it in place :doge:

I was able to do the EVGA step-up to the 1080Ti, but they pass out Founders Edition cards for the trades. If you want an 1180/2080 with an EVGA cooling system, you may have to buy it direct.

btw - Threadripper 2 is also rumored to be released in the next few months.

Yes, I pulled the trigger on 1st gen TR. Got really good deal on it paid $666 (Saved $420 including taxes).

Thanks, I will keep that in mind.

@Necrophore I forgot to mention, it will be liquid cooled so the stock cooling system doesn't matter.

Yea, it gets pretty expensive; I will probably return some of them or save it for future loop revision. I haven't purchase the GPU yet, however I just purchase my RAM today.
