    Hey guys,

    My name is Tyler and I'm a CAD designer and Prototype Machinist. This is my first scratch build but I have been watching you guys build for a while now. I have "built" a computer before, as in picked a bunch of pre-assmbled parts and plugged them into each other. As fun as that is, I wanted to challenge my abilities a bit in both a design aspect and a manufacturing aspect. During this build I will be making most things myself, besides a select few parts that our machines cant handle due to the size.

    So I am planning out a new workstation build to either use at home for work, or keep at the shop and use it here (only if boss helps pay). I want to use AMDs new ThreadRipper to make one hell of a beast. I'm still in the process of planning the bill of materials. but this is my plan so far:

    • Motherboard: Hard to tell since they aren't out yet but most likely will be an ASUS board like the Zenith Extreme
    • CPU: AMDs ThreadRipper
    • RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB - Eight 8gb sticks for now, until 128gbs is affordable
    • Memory: Samsung SSDs and m.2 SSD
    • GPU: PNY Quadro m4000, eventually 2 of them is the plan
    • Cooling: Not sure yet, some sort of water cooling
    • Power Supply: Not sure yet

    As you can see, this is still a very unfinished plan, but I wanted to start getting everything together and in one place to make this first build easy to document. I'll be updating this slowly as I hammer out some details. This will not be a cheap build, so if the boss does not want to help fund this beast, than I will be funding it personally. On the bright side, I would get to keep it at home if he doesnt want to help, if I even have a home after paying for this haha.

    The theme of this build is clean, yet outgoing. I don't want to make my water loop into the main attraction of this case like a lot of guys do. I want to keep it sleek, and smooth with minimal fasteners shown. This will be fun and I hope you guys enjoy. I'll leave you with a few renders I've made of it. The case will be anodized black aluminum and the colored parts you see will be polycarbonate with LEDs so you will be able to change the color accent easily. Still much to figure out, but I'd love any feedback or ideas you guys have for me. Thanks for taking a look and I'll do my best to keep the updates coming.

    I hope you're going to change the hinges.

    Ooo I will be, those are just place holders from Mcmaster while I find some low-pro inside mount ones.

    Thanks man, I can't wait to see where it goes either, I've been cadding up a new design idea almost everyday for the past month, I'm so happy I finally locked into one of them haha.

    And just incase anyone was curious, the TTM on the front are my initials.
