Description

The Aorus Gaming 7 X399 Board I was using shorted out suddenly while I was reinstalling some XBoxOne controller drivers. I was about to give up on the Threadripper, but I noticed there was an inexpensive ASRock X399 mobo so I decided to at least check and see if the Threadripper still worked. (MicroCenter tested all the other parts and said they were fine.)

Figured if I was going to change my motherboard, I might as well do a new build from scratch so I threw everything into a P600s and voila. Just in time for Extra Life Game Day. Building was easy, but I took my time with it. I wanted to make sure it was nice and neat. Air cooling configuration is 4 Corsair ML140s; three for front intake and 1 rear exhaust. ML140s get a bit loud but I wanted better static pressure so I tolerate the additional noise.

Wondering if you primarily use this for gaming...

It's heavily implied that gaming is one of this thing's uses

Gaming while streaming. I would not have bought a Threadripper for myself normally; CableMod gave me the CPU/Mobo to me two+ years ago during one of their promotions.

I have a separate rig for strictly gaming (3700X;1080TI).

I was wondering do you game and stream on this ? At the same time Or have separate for gaming and streaming.

I game and stream on this at the same time, which is solid enough to do gaming and stream in 60FPS.

My other build w/ the 1080ti is what I use when I want to gaming at 120+ FPS.

Quick question.... what's the difference in connecting GPU into the 2nd PCI-e slot rather than the first? Is there any difference at all?

Depends on the motherboard; this motherboard only has three PCI-E slots. My GPU is in the first slot, my Elgato Capture card occupies the third slot. I wanted to make sure I had plenty of room for airflow beneath the card.
