Description

This build is used for pretty much everything. It is primarily a workstation used for rendering and development work, but is also used for some pretty long gaming sessions. :) Games are mostly Far Cry New Dawn, Far Cry 4 and 5, Dying Light, Shadow and Rise of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield V, Assassin's Creed Odyssey (haven't started Origins yet). Metro Exodus soon, hopefully. Can't wait for Dying Light 2 and Doom Eternal.

The W200 case is dual-chamber, too. It's not listed as part of this build but the other side contains a 40TB NAS running on unRAID. It is used for backups, VMs and Docker containers (development). PC Part Picker list for the NAS build is here: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/digitalformula/saved/#view=HxrxGX. Sorry I don't have many pics of the NAS side, yet (will take more later).

Changed from 8700K a few months ago and it's been the best move I ever made. The additional cores + threads are absolutely life-changing for my workflow, especially when it comes to rendering and virtual machine development work. Gaming FPS suffers a little in terms of numbers but for me it's not noticeable at all. Every game is completely playable without any issues.

Haha yep, it's huge. I had to raise the desk to get enough airflow happening. Without the desk being higher, the case had about 2mm gap between it and the desk - rads were struggling to push the heat out effectively, even with 8x140mm fans.

Yep, it's a bit of a beast for sure. I'll take some more pictures a bit later. :)

Lol the plan was to take them off when the build was done, but I've had to move the case a couple of times. Without the wheels that would be impossible.

$20,000.......I think I'll leave it there.

I was about to say yeah but it’s AUD, until I saw you’re in NZ. Most of the cost is GPU, CPU and water loop.

Ah, you've stumbled on the real reason why I haven't posted pics of the other side ... ;-)

enough fans?

The perfect amount for the number of rads + intake + rear exhaust.

It's a lot, but yes. Enough.

I smell a feature...

Just because of the price!

Explain? I don't know what you mean by that.

The price is so ridiculously high that the pc might be featured on that aspect alone, particularly when the pc is THE MOST EXPENSIVE on pcpp at the moment

Hasn't been featured once in the 6 months since I posted it, so I doubt it'll happen now.

why is your pc worth more than my car and pc combined?

This build is only half the case, too. The W200 is dual chamber and the other side contains a 40TB NAS. See https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/digitalformula/saved/#view=HxrxGX.

Because when I set PC Part Picker to Australia, 2950X doesn't come up as an option. It is under CPU in the parts list, though.
