I waited for a long time for a case with a decent integrated handle in form factor that is convenient to carry to and from work, while enjoying some epic gaming sessions in between. The Rzyen 3950X doesn't disappoint. This is probably the world's first "portable" Strix RTX 3090 OC eGPU on the go because I carry this setup to and from work on a weekly basis when I need to go into the field/lab for compute intensive work. When its resting at home, I put it through the paces in my normal content creation task such as 8K video editing, photoshop and high resolution RAW files processing from my Canon R5 camera. It's also a great entertainment box running MSFS 2020 to entertain my 3 boys during this upcoming crappy winter! Glad I sold all my strix 2080 ti early to fully fund the strix. It runs so cool and quiet in this case and all my professional work is seeing a major uplift in performance anywhere from 70% to 200%!

Full specs:

CPU: Ryzen 3950X
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair VIII Impact Motherboard
Case: Lian-Li TU150 Case
PSU: Corsair SF750 PSU

GPU: Strix 2080ti OC STRIX RTX 3090 OC!
RAM: 16GB X 2 Gskill PC3600 DDR4 16-16-16-36

Samsung 970 Pro 1TB Boot Drive
Samsung 970 EVO 512GB Cache drive
2X 2TB Samsung PM863a SATA SSD

Already took this mini rig to and from the workplace many times and it performed flawlessly! Remains whisper quiet even under 100% mining load.

Rig updated!

Really lovely rig and amazing work station (looks real and not those "instagram-showboats :D )
Looking at your use? Why not dump in another 32GB?

I'm running the same rams and cooler as yourself, doing less intensive work but am contemplating placing 2 more sticks.

The concern is height clearance of the Dark Rock Pro 4(DRP4) on the slots closer to the cooler.

Really nice rig again!
