ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming X370
EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3 Full size ATX
AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
Samsung 960 EVO M.2 500GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0
G.Skill Fortis Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 Model F4-2133C15D-32GFT
Corsair Obsidian Series Mini-ITX Computer Case ATX (not included) Power Supply
Noctua NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 premium-grade low-profile CPU cooler for AMD AM4
Radeon pro WX 5100 8gb Workstation card


The case takes a full size ATX PS so i got that. All parts ordered $1691 to my door. Do you guys see anything that I missed? I think i will have to go to frys for some Cpu past unless the mother board or cpu comes with some but other then that do i need to order any tools to put it together?

This will replace a 6 year old Dell M4700 that has a Cinebench score of 647 lol

comes with TIM but you might want to go bigger if you can(up to 95mm) or aio. an 1800x might push that NH to its limit @ 95w... maybe faster RAM too.

*Can't i swap out the fan for another 92mm fan that spins faster? What should I buy?
*Keyshot only uses Cpu cores to render so memory speed is not to important but i will look into it
*Corse Air says they are good for 5 years but I am not sure i like buying something like AIO water coolers when I am going to have my PC doing Keyshot renders at full load for like 14-21 days straight while I am offshore.

with a better fan and no OC the nh should be ok. not sure what else is bigger/better, its slim pickins. as for aio ive had no issues with modern units but its down to personal preference I guess. if you have room maybe even one of the new ek aluminum kits would be good. that way you can change the pump if/when it dies and they are looking like a really good bang for buck. if you are able to get past the alu, some people cant...
