    I love it. And I want it (but maybe with AMD GPU instead of Nvidia). I am currently using 16-core Threadripper 2950X with 128GB of RAM (8x16GB ECC UDIMM DDR4-2933), and despite me building this system just about 2.5 years ago, I already want more. More cores, more memory, more PCIe bandwidth, and smaller case. That thing is cool. I would use SFX-L power supply tho probably, or a passive ATX 750W PSU, and custom cables. Or hunt for some 12V only PSU.

    do you donate small builds to older viewers who really need to replace theirs. With a newer build I could do my greenpunk world in SketchUp, learn to render them and and finally write and publish lifetime projects. I actually model for therapy but my emergency GC is ancient and barely works with browsers. Help and old man become self sufficient and I'll make sure I'll pass this on for others.

    Um... Linus, I may be a lowly electronics engineer, who thinks he knows that high-impedance MOS inputs are a) everywhere these days and b) suckers for degrading or dying with the slightest crackle of static. But please quiet my OCD. You are wearing an invisible earth strap, aren't you? You have conductive shoes and a conductive floor? Because otherwise, I will find myself chronically rewinding to the point where you're manhandling (perfectly reasonable word that well pre-dates "manspreading" and other such SJW shit) that MB with your bare hands, and weeping. You do take static precautions, don't you, Linus? TELL ME YOU TAKE STATIC PRECAUTIONS! TELL MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    For most of us, it IS still impossible. Not improbable, as in throw more money at it, but without a specific partnership license, we can't even GET that motherboard legitimately, for starters. Having the kind of connections/clout a channel like this does when securing hardware makes it a bit of a different playing field. I, personally, couldn't get one no matter what I wanted to pay, at least not without someone ELSE breaking their license contract agreement, so... not strictly legally, therefore I consider it impossible. (Yes, you could if you take a back-alley black-market type approach, but... no thanks.)
