IMHO, the Aventum is very expensive overkill for your system. It will be more expensive to run every day as well.

The Threadripper series is a poor choice for gaming. They are designed for very heavy number crunching tasks where the cores and threads will benefit you. If you want the best in gaming procs, you want the i7-9700K or the i9-9900K. They can be overclocked for free to speeds much higher than the Threadrippers, and they turbo to 4.9 GHz and 5.0GHz respectively at stock. That speed is what you want for gaming. Their core count is plenty for years to come.

Your build has gimped you with a SATA SSD for primary drive, when a Samsung 512 GB NVMe PRO is 5-6 X as fast.

Quickly reconfiguring around a Lumos with Hydrolux Pro hardline, etc. and the other changes comes in right around $4000 with a $400 discount coming back to you.

I suggest you might want to look there at what you can do. You could afford more SSD storage for one thing, and a better motherboard. The Aventum is not out of reach if you must, but the key would be getting the right proc.

Come back if you have more questions.

thank you. This has certainly made me rethink my config. I suspected the threadripper might not be the best cpu for gaming but wasn't sure.
