TheGrefg is one of the most famous streamers in our country and as such his secondary gamer setup is coveted by many. But what not everyone knows is that the influencer does not have the latest hardware and bases his setup on components that are already more than profitable and that continue to provide him with good performance, and since he updated his main PC a few months ago, this will remain for other types of tasks. For this reason and as a curiosity, we are going to see what components TheGrefg’s secondary PC has to carry out its broadcasts and its videos.
Its setup consists of many components, as is logical, but there is one that is not specified and that we can apparently guess, since the available information is not updated and we do not know if it has changed the model or not. We are talking about the motherboard, which we will leave for the end and we will fully enter the rest of the components.
Processor: Intel Core i9-9900X
We are talking about a CPU with Skylake architecture that is manufactured at 14 nm and that includes to its credit 10 cores and 20 threads at a base frequency of 3.5 GHz that is capable of going up to 4.5 GHz in its Boost Max 3.0 mode.
Its TDP is 165 watts and will support up to 128GB DDR4-2666MHz RAM. It has 44 PCIe 3.0 lines that come in handy to connect capture cards and, if necessary, a sound card without losing even the slightest performance.
Graphics Card: NVIDIA RTX TITAN X
It was the best of NVIDIA’s Turing architecture and as such it’s still a valid GPU, but it’s two steps behind the current generation and roughly on par with an RTX 3070 Ti. It has 4,608 shaders to 1,770MHz in Boostis PCIe 3.0 and integrates no less than 24 GB of VRAM for a TDP of 280 watts.
SSD: Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 2TB
Within this series it is the best, but since the X299 platform is limited to PCIe 3.0, it would not make sense to improve this component and opt for the SSD 980 PRO. And we are talking about a solid state drive 2TB which is capable of reaching a speed of 3,500MB/s in reading and 3,300MB/s of sequential writing, more than enough for any task, however arduous it may be within the sector.
HDD: Seagate Iron Wolf Pro 16TB
It is the storage option without a doubt and the best that can be bought in the professional sector for features and capacity within the brand. Logically, what TheGrefg is looking for here with this component for its PC is to have the maximum available storage space, because although the performance is good as such, it does not reach that of an SSD 5 times cheaper since it only achieves 255MB/s.
RAM memory: G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 4 × 8 GB DDR4 3,200 MHz
Bearing in mind that the IMC of the processor arrives very precisely at this frequency, it is already considered an overclock as such. The kit is certainly a great choice for this platform, since it integrates a more than enough amount, speed and adjusted latencies that will not trigger the voltage of the controller, so it will not add extra temperature.
What we have is a kit of four modules for Quad Channel at a frequency of 3,200 MHz with latencies 16-18-18-36 with a voltage of 1.35V and of course with RGB.
Power Supply: CORSAIR AX1600i
Possibly the best power supply you can buy today. TITANIUM certified, rock-steady 12-volt rails, digital monitoring, multiple EPS12V and GPU connectors, absolute silence running up to mid-range.
And of course, an efficiency that impresses, since although it declares a 94% in certain scenarios it may be higher.
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Evolv m-ATX
There is controversy here, since as a second PC having an m-ATX case within the X299 platform can only mean that as a motherboard it had a EVGA X299 Micro. In any case, we are talking about a medium-sized case with tempered glass and a double-chamber system to isolate the upper part from the lower part.
Its design is quite sober, but it uses top quality materials such as aluminum, steel and the named tempered glass.
And so far the components of TheGrefg’s secondary PC, a very interesting setup that can be used for any task, from gaming to video editing.
