CPU: AMD Threadripper 1900X

Ryzen Threadripper CPUFor the CPU in this build I selected the AMD Threadripper 1950X. This CPU has a base clock speed of 3.4Ghz, with a turbo speed of 4Ghz. This CPU is completely NUTS with 16 cores, and 32 threads, with 64 PCI-E lanes and an 180W TDP. The new Threadripper CPUs are so powerful they use a brand new CPU socket type, called TR4 and have a HUGE physical footprint.

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MA621P

Cooler Master MA621PTo cool Threadripper I selected the BRAND NEW Cooler Master MA621P. This new cooler has been designed EXCLUSIVELY for Threadripper CPUs, such as the Threadripper 1900X, Threadripper 1920X or Threadripper 1950X. That makes it a perfect fit for today’s Threadripper gaming PC build, and it works very well. It’s also one of the best air coolers available with TR4 support, and includes 2 Cooler Master, 4-pin RGB fans.

The RAM also works well for overclocking and thus quad channel kit provides plenty of memory bandwidth for this 4K Gaming PC build!
