    Hi
    We're starting new project, that we decided to call Project Lightning. ⚡️



    Why Lightning? Because the assumption is that the design should be refined, but the possibility of obtaining different colors and lighting effects is welcomed, so there will be a lot of it, but we will try to do it with taste, which will certainly be a challenge



    At the very beginning we would like to thank our sponsors for that project

    So, we begin with the heart - CPU. Yet again we decided to go with unstoppable AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 3970X.

    PC will be used mainly for graphic designing and rendering, so it will make use of that 32 cores and 64 threads

    And at the end, a little teaser for next post, the motherboard...

    Hi,


    Like I promised in a previous update, this time we're show You the motherboard

    To let that 32 core monster fly, we need a serious motherboard. And surely we have one!

    Asus ROG Zenith II Extreme​

    Hi

    Let's move to next part for Project Lightning! This is very important component of every PC, which often is treated neglectfully. And it shouldn't, if You want Your components to get stable power all the time

    Here we decided to go with the obvious choice:

    Corsair AX1600i

    It is the ultimate digital ATX power supply, built using only the best components and state-of-the-art gallium nitride transistors to deliver more than 94% efficiency.

    Hi,

    Thanks guys! @Noisiv @HK-1 . It's one hell of a PSU, that's for sure. But to be honest, we're struggling a bit with available peripherals slots, so it's not ideal either



    This time we'll show You some of the storage that will be used in our project​



    Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD 2TB

    Hi,
    We're pushing forward with Project Lightning! ⚡️

    This time, we've made use of magnetic stickers, that Corsair supplies with AX1600i. Great thing! Previously we used to design and made custom stickers, now it's a lot faster and easier!​
