Miss The HEDT Glory Days? Build a 96-core 12-Channel DDR5 Beast with AMD EPYC

AMD no longer ships its Ryzen Threadripper CPUs for high-end desktops and positions its Ryzen Threadripper Pro for workstations. But now that single-socket motherboards for AMD’s 4th Generation EPYC ‘Genoa’ processors are available, you may no longer want to settle with 64-core Threadripper Pro, but opt for a monstrous system with 96 cores and up to 12 channels of DDR5 memory. 

Recently ASRock Rack introduced several single-socket SP5 motherboards for AMD’s EPYC 9004-series processors (via HardwareLuxx.de), including the Deep Micro-ATX GenoaD8UD-2T/X550 and GenoaD24QM3-2L2T/BCM motherboards that are formally aimed at servers, but which can be used to build an ultimate battle station with a 96-core CPU and loads of memory assuming that you can afford the CPU and find an appropriate chassis.
