R9 5950X / i5 9600K dual system workstation, Mk II

A major update to my first pass at a dual system build, with a lot more space to allow this awesome hardware to shine

---

Motivation
I only build a new PC about once every four years, and only when I see a "step function" advancement in a particular area that's super exciting.
In this case, the Ryzen 9 3950x was just what I was looking for!

How the system will be used

  • Day job: lots of analysis jobs that involve building hundreds of Java, Python, C++ and JS programs and performing static analysis
  • Side job: streaming software engineering instructional video content (key concern: I don't want my compile slowed down by video encoding)
  • Night job: games


Case choice was inspired by Jayztwocents, and I'm impressed that I've been able to fit 13 120mm fans and dual 480mm + 360mm + 240mm + 120mm rads, all while "un-hiding" the second system, relative to how things were set up in the Evolv X
