Hi guys,

So now we have much more details on the Zen2 and Ryzen 3 CPU's I've decided to formulate my new build (I know my old thread was very painful for you guys and I understand that so fresh start since it's a fresh rig)

I already have some parts that I'll port over from my current Rig listed below, I won't be changing the GPU's for now.

Current Parts
Seasonic Prime Ultra 1300w
Sapphire Vega64 Nitro + (x2 cards)
2x Bykski GPU Waterblocks
Corsair 1000D case

Proposed Parts
CPU -
Ryzen 3950X or 3900X, probably wait for the 3950X
Mobo - Asus X570 (thinking Crosshair VIII Formula)
Storage - 2x PCI 4.0 NVME drives (2TB each) (thinking Corsair MP600 & 2x Sata 6GB/s WD Black (4TB)
The NVME will be in Raid, with OS and games installed, the HDD's will be Raid for local storage, Movies, ISO's and other files. - I have a server for backup
Watercooling - Standard EK equipment, Hard piping, Decent D5 Pump & Res, 2x EK Coolstream XE 480s.
RAM - 32/64GB (not decided) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200

I'll be cooling the CPU (and aiming for a modest OC) two GPU's and the board (since it comes with built in VRM waterblock.

Storage, I am open to suggestions on both, I'd like to take the advantage of PCI 4.0 NVME storage Happy to swap brands to any recommend but understand it's new tech so untested, (happy to take a chance)

Any recommendations on changes here on the parts I'm planning for. Usage is high end gaming, some CAD, some Photoshop/Video Editing (Adobe Suite) and Benchmarking, (Hoping to get some good benches from it)

As you can tell I have particular brands I like, Corsair & Asus.

I think you listed primary use last.:p
Because synthetic benchmarketing is only thing where super expensive highest benchmarketing numbers NVMes really do much anything besides making bank account/wallet lighter.

Well, direct stream copy video cutting/joining would use that raw STR.
Any effects processing/encoding is pretty much computationally bottlenecked.
Just stumbled into this few days ago:

Esat, I understand what you mean, I just don't see the point of going PCI 4.0 (board & CPU) to get a PCI 3.0 NVME drive.

AMD is suggesting faster DDR4 RAM than 3200 MHz for the Ryzen 3x00 series.

Cheers for that, I was going by their posted specs so 3733 seems to be the sweet spot, I'll amend as required.

What is actually required is to know what features will be lost by opting for a previous gen board for a Zen 2 CPU. Until that's determined (reviews??), it's a bit premature to go for an older gen board, even if said board fully supports the CPU in question.

I'll give you my current example: by having a 2600X in a X370 board, i don't have the benefit of precision boost override, which i would have if my board were a 2nd gen board (B450 / X470).

We know about the unavailability of PCIe 4.0 in older gen boards: what we don't know is what else. One must determine if whatever is lost by having a Zen 2 CPU in an older gen board is worth the price difference VS newer gen boards.

I understand, which is why I am not going for an older gen board, I'm going for the newly announce Asus X570 Crosshair VIII PCI 4.0 board. (Link below) This is a new build and since Money/Cost is not a primary concern I am happy going for the newer tech and willing to take a "gamble" on being first (ish) in line.
