Hello, community,
I want to build a work station for deep learning.
I am thinking of this combination:
RTX 2070 super (twin fan) + Ryzen 5 3600 + B450 motherboard.
I won't be upgrading for a multi-GPU system in the near future.
My main concerns are of heating and dust issue as I am from a humid and hot region
Also, the price should be less.
Please advise me whether this combination will work fine for me or not?

You'll need a previous gen amd cpu in order to update the b450 board bios to use the 3600 (amd can send you a boot kit if the board of your choice doesnt have usb flashing without cpu). Otherwise you'll need to pickup an x570 board

As long as your case has dust filters and the humidity is non-condensing, it should be fine, but you'd probably want an aftermarket heatsink. Even the old evo212 .

That is a good combination. Select a b450 board that has bios flashback and you wont need a 2nd gen Ryzen CPU to update the bios.

Here is a list of boards that have flashback.

ASRock (BIOS Flashback)

None!

ASUS (USB BIOS Flashback)

ASUS Crosshair VI Extreme

ASUS Crosshair VI Hero

ASUS Crosshair VI Hero (Wi-Fi AC)

ASUS Crosshair VII Hero

ASUS Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi)

Gigabyte (Q-Flash Plus)

None!

MSI (Flash BIOS Button) [

Thank you for the information. I am building the system with a budget limit and X570 will be little expensive. Can I go with the combination of RTX 2070 super + Ryzen 5 2600/2600X + X470/B450
I will prefer X470 for multi-GPU support option though.

Thank you so much for this information. I will definitely prefer to work with a 3600. But little hesitant about the updating the BIOS part as I donot have any experience/knowledge in case some problem appears. Also, exploring other options for buying and maintanance budget issues. What do you think about RTX 2070 super+ Ryzen 5 2600X + X470/B450?
My main aim is to use for conputation work like deep learning.
 
I would not buy a 2600 at this point. The 3600 is a very good price and you are building a high-end rig, I would pair it with a new CPU.

As for updating the bios, it is really easy. For the most part, you just load the bios on a USB then insert the USB and press a button.
