I've been pretty happy with my b450i ITX setup. It's minimalist, convenient, and get's the job done well with little fuss.
I came into a rtx3090 with some EK watercooling gear, and I would appreciate some opinions on a case, and possibly motherboard, to build a better setup that could utilize this giant gpu. I haven't used watercooling in 15 years now, so would appreciate the help in pointing me in the right direction.
I mine on the 3090 while not in use, and it seems like it would make sense to move to watercooling, given the immense amount of power and heat given off by a rtx3090.
I would also like to utilize 10gbe sfp+, or something faster in the future. The logical choice here seems to be a cheap sfp+ nic, which would mean a second 16x slot and a larger ATX format motherboard. I guess the utility of a second slot beats the convenience of the minimal ITX format.
If you were to build a decent quality/durable am4 computer build, what would your suggestions be?
I have a ryzen 3600 I would carry across for now, perhaps swapping for a 5800x/5900x, or I might just wait it out on the upcoming am5.
I have 16gb of low speed ram, though may swap for 32gb of something high speed that can help push out the fps on this 3090. My current monitor does 1440p 144hz.
What would you suggest for a well built case that will fit some form of radiator, to cool both the cpu and the 3090
What would you suggest for a motherboard? I have an asus x570 in a server which is a wonderfully stable motherboard, but for this computer, I would happily compromise on a cheaper x570 or older x470, if I don't need to utilize the extra features
Also, suggestions on a radiator and pump?
Thanks for the help!
