civilb7b is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone, I am looking for a workstation build to use for CFD in my PhD research.

  1. Which software do you intend to use? ANSYS Fluent
  2. Are you limited by license constraints? No
  3. What type of simulations do you want to run? Multiphase flow in porous media with conjugate heat transfer and electrochemical reactions. Max cell count of 30M.
  4. If there is a budget, how high is it? $5000 USD
  5. What kind of setting are you in? Hobbyist? Student? Academic research? Engineer? Student
  6. Where can you source your new computer? Buying a complete package from a large OEM? Assemble it yourself from parts? Are used parts an option? I am comfortable with assembling computers myself. I believe I can get used parts approved.
  7. Which part of the world are you from? USA
  8. Anything else that people should know to help you better Based on what I've read so far I am leaning towards a dual EPYC workstation from used parts on eBay, particularly the EPYC 7532. An OEM option is this Dell T7820 although I would have to buy more RAM to fully populate the DIMMs as it only comes with 4 sticks. As mentioned before, I'm comfortable with assembling computers however I don't have experience with server components though I imagine it is familiar.
Thank you
