New computer (Windows 11 ready???)


 Share

Recommended Posts

This will be my 3rd AMD based computer.  First being the Atholon 64 x2, then moved to intel for two builds.  Now back to AMD.

 

My most recent AMD build is running a Threadripper 3970x, running esxi.  256 GB ram, 12 TB nvme storage.

 

Now, I'm look at building a possible windows 11 computer.  Going with AMD yet again, but I'm a newbie when it comes to AMD.

Edit:  Main worry, is the cpu, and if I need to buy a different cpu just to update the bios to support the newer cpu.

I don't think so; Gigabyte is advertising it as support 5000 series out of the box.

 

Also you previous build is Windows 11 ready too ;)

 

 

Edit:

The board has to come with a minimum of F30 BIOS to support 5000 series.

Good to hear.  Didn't want to waste money buying a 2nd chip to update bios.  Or, I'd probably just give the cpu away to someone.

You're Threadripper meets Windows 11's requirements. It's first gen threadripper and first gen ryzen processors that isn't in in MS's list cpu support at this time.

It may well run Windows 11, but my Threadripper is my ESXi server, for now.

 

On a side note, decided to switch up the case with a Lian Li pc-o11d-rog.  Read some interesting things on my first pick, and chose this instead.  I prefer InWin, but decided on Lian Li this time.  Previous cases:  Current gaming computer is an InWin 909.  My Threadripper is in an InWin 925.

I have that case. It is excellent.

The Lian Li case came in, very nice.

Items are of course subject to change, but ordered:

be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950x

Seasonic PRIME TX-1000

ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero AM4 X570S (was thinking the S was the newer model)

 

Later on, will decide on storage and ram.  May keep as is...

Looking on that ram thread made me wonder if my Dark Rock Pro 4 will clear the ram.  May have to adjust the fan.  No idea, until it comes in.

 

Anyway, ordered a couple different types of thermal grease from Grizzly.  Ordered Carbonaut and Kryonaut.

 

Ordered ram (Corsair Vengeance RGB pro 3600), if it doesn't fit, then I can always use it on a different build, or just use 2, 64GB may, just may, be enough.

Also, ordered two (2) samsung 980 pro 2 TB.  Saw the storage usage I'm using on my gaming computer, and decided on lower storage size.

There are a lot of changes that have been made with the stuff that we see. It looks like everything is fine with you since there are changes that can be talked about with the stuff that we see every day and I hope it’s working out with no issues for us soon.
