I am double posting this, because I can'T figure out th e best spot for it

Hello,

My faithfull and hardworking workstation has stopped working as my Asus P9x79 WS has stopped working. I was hoping to just replace the Mobo, but then I faced the music. No such a thing as a new P9x79 WS board... Some stuff in China. Not even a use ıne to be found.

So, I have to replace the CPU, RAM (64GB) and the MOBO...

I decided on i9-19900K. (Yes! Instead of 9900K)

For the Mobo, I prefered the Asus Pro WS W480 ACE... I want no Game Mobo and also the same WS line I enjoyed for years was for a good reason...

For the Ram I ended up liking the Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 128GB (4x32GB) DDR4 3600

I was thinking about Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 128GB DDR4 3600 but they only come in Quad form. My previous built was Quad system, but I figure with this kind of speed, I won't be missing that extra bandwidth...

So I already have a good Corsair Power (more than enough) I already a GPU card: GTX 1660 Ti... (have more than I need)
I have a huge Monster; Cosmos 2 Case...

So, now I suppose I need your advice and some amount of luck...

cheers
I guess 10900K or 11900K. You need a high end cooler for either.
For the board I would get one with heatsinks on the Vram. Tip their no gaming motherboards it's just a marketing thing.

Your spending a bunch on memory buy it from the motherboards QVL just to make sure. In a single pack of 4 sticks.

Depends on the age of the power supply if I would reuse it

UPDATE


Incidentally on Intel's 11900K compatibility list Asusu Pro WS W480 Ace is not included...

However on Ausu W480's compatibility list does support 11900K with BIOS update...
