so that means this is Corsair Single Sided/Single Ranked RAM, capable of running up to 4 8 GB sticks.

Purchaseable on Amazon for dirt cheap here:

32 Gigs which is four sticks of 8 GB,which is all I will really need.


4 x 8 GB sticks **error in my typing***

That link to the threadripper help guide was helpful though. I was wondering what those heatsinks on the mobo next to the TR CPU are and it explains it. I will definetly make sure I mount topside fans to cool off that sink.

This is a symbol picture and a board with Intel CPU...

Use the X399 Taichi manual, why do think it does exist?

I see. In manual 2.3 the RAM module population is explained. Thanks!

Am I able to update the bios without a CPU? If I wanted to run a 2nd Gen TR? I don't know if my bios is updated or not.

Will a Corsair 1000 Watt PSU be sufficient? I am using the power supply calculator and its saying I will be using about ~800 watts at full load, is 200 watts of overhead sufficient for 24/7 workload/gaming?

Some people insist on 50% wattage overhead and some people say 20% is fine... I'm not sure, which. The 1000 watt Corsair PSU has great reviews and still leaves me with 20% overhead wattage. The Taichi x399 mobo has a very large VRM and VRM heatsink so voltage regulation should be tight?

This mainboard has the BIOS Flashback feature, a push button at the I/O panel and a specific USB port. That must run without CPU (because of the usage of a mainboard internal microcontroller for that).

50%? 20%? I say 33% ;-)

Don't know what you put to the power supply calculator, but a 1000 watt psu should be ok if you do not use two NVIDIA GTX 2080Ti...
Corsair AX1000 with 83-A-Singlerail would be a good choice.

What's wrong with the RM 1000 by Corsair? You highly recommend a platinum rated 1000 watt PSU?

You recommend a platinum with 83 a single rail. That sounds like what the TR build guide said.

What would cause the hardware to fry? A bad mobo or a bad PSU?

I didn't write that something is wrong with the RM 1000!

You wrote that you choose a 1000 Watt Corsair PSU, but not which one.
So if it is not the AX1000 (what i thought) but the RM 1000, go for it.

My new rig is designed for 24/7 workload gaming and a little video editing. Is there going to be a significant performance impact with the Corsair RMX 1000 watt PSU Versus the Corsair AX 1000? When the computer is not at full load I should be only drawing 400 watts or so which would put the PSU in silent operation. I'm only looking at a few percentage points of gain from the AX PSU versus the RMX PSU is that correct?
