    My new Build

    CPU=1 x Ryzen Threadripper 3970X 32-Core - 3690 MHz (32 cores, 64 threads)
    Memory=131072 MB DDR4 DIMM 2133 MHz (8 of 8 slots)

    Temps on new build are really good

    Had some real issues trying to get Lightwave to work, on the 3 displays, LW would freeze up on #2 monitor [the middle one] for some odd reason, it was really becoming a headache. It was a WTH moment, daaaaaaa

    So I took a break and did some yard work for awhile..... hours and a few beers later..

    So spent a good 1/2 day swapping cards and cables, then some how I fixed it. wahoooo

    The GTX-1080, I am using for the Displays, I had the displays hooked up using the HDMI and the DP ports.
    And decided to Use the DVI port for display #1, and the HDMI port for the #2 display, then the Display Port #1 for display #3.

    Now its all working like it should.. Did the bench mark scene, using the BenchmarkMarbles scene.
    Rendered it in 10m 52s (652.6 seconds)

    Praise the world, remember "BEER" did save the world... yuppers love that beer

    Welcome to the Threadripper club! How does LW 2015 run on the 3970X? I have to shut down half my cores on the 2990WX in order to run 2015 stable otherwise it's almost unusable. LW 2018, 2019 & 2020 all run great on it with all cores.

    So far 2015.3 runs sweet with all 64 cores.

    Had Issues after getting the new machine after getting up and running, all the versions of LW would freeze up on the #2 Display..

    After fiddling around with the vid cards I removed the Titan and put the GTX-1080 in PCI-1 slot, and so far everything is working again.... Thought it was LW but it was the Video card issue, still going to put the Titan back in and put it in PCI-2 and use it for the GPU stuff. The Titan still has some good Horsepower in it.

    Down loaded the AI Suite 3 for the Asus Mother board so I can monitor the temps and do manual control if I like.

    Some one said I can use the UEFI gui while Windows is running, need to figure that one out..

    well, I got 14.52 mins on benchmark marbles 2015.3 lws (892.7 secs) so your system is kicking it.
    I wonder how so much faster, considering same chip and ram speed, only mb different?
