Hi all! I'm going to buy a new motherboard and cpu, since my video cards (rog 2080 ti matrix) do not fit motherboards on socket 1151 because of pci-e slots positions (video cards are "thick" and with 3 way sli gap the top gpu does not receive airflow). And yes, I know that processors like 2990wx and 9980xe are not for games (my pc is used also for rendering and compiling huge projects with visual studio), but still... does anyone have similar configurations? 120+ fps on ultra settings will be enough (120hz monitor). What is the situation with FPS at 5120x1440 screen resolution will be with this configuration:

MB: ROG Zenith Extreme (non alpha)
CPU: Threadripper 2990wx + ROG Ryujin 360 Watercooler
GPU: ROG 2080 Ti Matrix
PSU: ROG Thor 1200w

Or its better to buy a 9980xe?

I’d go with TR just for the fact it’s probably gonna last longer if you wanna throw a big chip in there. There is a game mode too which shuts off like half the cores too.
Was thinking WHY when I saw the SLI but makes sense if you’re using it to render.

Thanx for your reply. One more question - can TR2990WX be installed on Zenith Extreme without that ugly additional rog cooling kit?
