    Love using old parts.   I built one completely out of old parts and it sits in my garage for browsing

    already had the parts missing the motherboard so why not.the extra 2 cores do nice job in battlefield v.i thought games dont use more than 6 cores

    true and the fact that can get 48gb ram will make it last much more.

    yes the cooler touch the vga

     
    I would move the videocard to the 3rd slot, that slot runs in 16x mode. That way it will no longer touch the CPU cooler and it will be closer to the front intake fan.
     
    64GB of RAM is awesome.

    Nice upgrade, x58 was a great chipset/mb. Is it just the fan edge touching GPU? Doesn't seem to be pushing on it from pic anyway. +1

    The first and the third slots utilize 16 lanes each, so the videocard will perform the same in either of those slots.

    nice thanks,i was afraid cause motherboard manual mension for 1 vga use 1st pcie slot.
    hope noctua will release soon their new cpu cooler with 7 pipes and this one will be compatible with this motherboard.
    *edit*
    just saw that the nh-d15s is compatible with that motherboard ,so this might be the best solution.

    Agreed. That is why I have a Threadripper build myself. Saving now for a 3rd gen Threadripper which I hope will be available some time in October.

    no the cooler is touching/pushing a bit the VGA ,if it had another 1-2mm would be fine.
    found a temp solution and will wait for noctua new cooler
