Raven_A

Raven_A is the first of two dual-motherboard projects for work-and-play. More detail on Raven_B, the second one in this series, soon. Raven_A took a long time to complete, not only because of availability of certain parts at MSRP, but also as it involved a lot of custom fabrication. Raven_A sits in a Thermaltake Core P8 case.

On the 'top left', it includes an Asus X570 Hero wifi board with an AMD 3950X, 32GB of DDR4 CL14 / 3800, a Gigabyte Gaming OC 6900XT with Bykski block, and various Western Digital NVME and SSDs. It is powered by a Seasonic Prime Platinum 1300W PSU. Other cooling is by a Phanteks CPU block, 2x D5 pumps and a total of 1200x63 rads.

On the 'bottom right', there is an Asus X570 Dark Hero board with an AMD 5950X, 32 GB of DDR4 CL14 / 3800, an Asus Strix OC 3090 with a Phanteks block, and also various Western Digital NVME and SSDs. It is powered by an Antec HPC 1300 W Platinum PSU. Other cooling is by a Phanteks CPU block, 3x D5 pumps and a total of 1320x63 rads.
