Our Phantom Gaming build is now underway with the first parts being installed. The H500P has bee stripped of its PSU basement shrouds ready for replacements to be fabricated giving us easy access to start fitting components.
So far we have installed the Cooler Master MF120mm fans, V750 PSU and Phantom Gaming 6 motherboard from ASRock.
The most exciting part today though is the CPU, AMD were kind enough to send over their flagship 2990WX instead of a 1950X for this build. This is a monster of a CPU and given its our first experience with Threadripper we are really excited to see how it performs. This rig will be used for upcoming builds as a video editing workstation so we have all the grunt we need for footage.
So the hardware is coming along nicely so far but then we hit a snag. Due to the height of the TeamGroup Phantom Gaming DDR4 we are using the Wraith Ripper is about 3mm short of clearance and cannot be used. We are on with arranging an alternative cooler so we will bring more on that in our next update.
