Description

The main purpose of this system is to process laser scan data from a Leica RTC360 scanner using Lecia Cyclone software. Then work with the data sets in Autodesk Recap and Navisworks.

The build was focused on performance and function. I wanted it to be as clean as possible with no RGB.

Overall, the build went really well, only a few minor issues. I had to notch the top fan filter to clear the mounting screws for the top radiator, otherwise it would not snap into place. During the initial OS install I kept getting a blue screen with BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER. I had to disable the on-board WiFi, install windows, install the WiFi driver, then re-enable WiFi.

At stock clocks it will idle at 26C, max temp ~62C using OCCT small data set. I haven't spent much time getting a good overclock. Quickly used the Asus EZ tuning to get 4.4 GHz all core, with 2 going up to 4.6 GHz. However, it set the voltages pretty high. Around 1.23V on the two 4.6 GHz cores. Running OCCT small data would push temps over 100C.

Consider adding another GPU?

I think that your amazing processor could be bottlenecked by the GPU. Navisworks takes full advantage of multiple GPU's. Having 2 1080ti's vs one cuts my calc and render time in half.

Or consider getting a smaller GPU just for display, so Autodesk can fully utilize the 2080 ti.

For what?

Memory used?

Using Corsair VENGEANCE LPX 128GB (8 x 16GB) DDR4 DRAM 3800MHz C19 but it currently isn't listed. Part number CMK128GX4M8X3800C19. I submitted an addition request. In the meantime, I added the same memory, but the RGB variant to my parts list.

How to you like the Asus Prime X299-Deluxe II ? I am leaning towards that or the rampage 6 extreme

I really like it. I chose it over the Rampage VI Extreme mainly because I didn't want to go to EATX. However, I liked that it has thunderbolt ports as well as dual 8 pin CPU connectors. Haven't spent much time on an overclock yet, but was easily able to run 4.5 GHz all core.

I also need a super hi power pc for processing pictures into photogrammetry data in pix4d. I like your build but I would like to keep the budget closer to 5-6k. If I went down to one of the lower i9's like the i9950 would I still need all of that water cooling? Also probably wouldn't have the 2 970 evos just one.

For 5-6 k you can easily still have a 9980xe. Just need to budget elsewhere. Custom cooling is probably not the best allocation of budget for your case. How much memory do you need? How much storage? Does your Application take advantage of CPU or GPU or both?

Pix4d has 3 phases: one that uses cpu, one that uses gpu, and one that uses hd. I worry about cooling the 9980x with just air or even a mid tier water cooler. Also I believe 128gb memory would be beneficial...

To get the price down, the first thing that I would cut is likely the ram. I would say 64GB of 3200 is more than enough for the application. As you said, the second 970 EVO. Realistically, you can go all air and eliminate a lot of cost. Using a Noctua NH-D15 or similar high end air cooler. Also, a 2080 Ti is likely overkill.

Wow. Two liquid coolers! Major. And I love the 740 case. Great build!

These components honestly deserve better.. : (

I'm curious why you went with memory so much faster than the CPU is capable of accessing? (Per Intel's spec sheet, it's limited to DDR4-2666.)

I've ran at 3800 easily with the system by either enabling the XMP profile, or also by manually setting the values.

ddr4-2666 is a low-ball number. technically anything higher is an overclock, so they are absolved if you run into any issues with faster memory. but for intel, typically, you won't have any memory speed issues.

I definitely agree. I just haven't found the time yet to learn the ins and outs of overclocking this platform.
