Ryzen 9 3950x + i5-9600K dual system w/ dual 2080 ti

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
Color(s): Black Gray White
RGB Lighting? Yes
Theme: Futuristic
Cooling: Custom Liquid Cooling
Size: E-ATX
Type: General Build

Build Updates

Will OC_PEG make a difference?
