Cosmic Elegy Workstation

/// Overview //
This is my build from February/March of this year. The colors are teal & purple and based off my logo for Cosmic Elegy. My latest upgrade to my main workstation includes a Ryzen 7 2700X, a Sapphire NITRO+ RX Vega 56 I got off ebay for just $275 (@300 with shipping) and I snagged a black Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic & an ASUS ROG Strix-F X470 from Micro Center. The PSU is a bit of an overkill for this system, but I got the RM1000x for an amazing deal on Amazon. I also got the DeepCool RF120s for an amazing deal on Amazon; 2 5-packs for $35 each.

/// Uses //
This build is my main workstation I use full time for work. I run Ableton Live 10.1, the iZotope Music Production Suite, Davinci Resolve, the Adobe suite (Photoshop, Illustrator mainly), DMXIS, Show Buddy, Handbrake, dbpoweramp, Voicemeeter, OBS & more. Plus I use this machine as well to power triple monitors and my GT Omega / Fanatec sim-racing setup (CSL Elite & CSR Elite Pedals) in iRacing, Assetto Corsa & Automobilista.

/// Settings //
I have PBO on the 2700x at PPT 999, TDC 999, EDC 185 with a .05 offset to keep the voltage around 1.35-1.4 idle and around 1.47-1.48 spikes for a few seconds during heavy workloads. For gaming I'll use Ryzen Master to change the EDC to around 160 to lessen the voltage spikes when gaming for a long session. I have the RAM set to 3066 15-17-17-36 at 1.35mv. That's the highest I could get with 4 dimms. With just 16GB in 2 dimms it will go to 3466 at the same timings at 1.375mv. The Vega 56 has been flashed to the NITRO+ V64 bios and I have power play table mods installed. I have a -100mv undervolt set with the highest P-state set to 1707 MHz but that actually means about 1680 MHz while gaming. The memory I can only push 900 MHz before I start to see artifacting with the V64 bios (I think the 64 bios hurts the memory because it's micron and not samsung).

/// Benchmarks //
My highest Cinebench R15 score was 1994; sooo close to 2000 but I think I'll need some better memory to be able to break 2k. In Superposition 1080p High my top score is (10501. 1080p Medium is 14781. I'll update with some FireStrike and Time Spy scores.
