Professional poker player but only have budget for 3700x against other poker player with TERABYTES of RAM on dedicated servers? LOL
The only industry where such stuff(terabytes of memory/overclocked CPU) might be helpful is HFT, but usually those guys don't care about pricing. Can't think of...
I'm not familliar with modern stuff, but afaik you can set power target with X570 boards. That's usually discussed in SFF (small form factor) communities. People were talking about bringing 3900x chips from stock 105W to 65W, because of small CPU coolers. It seems doable, but I'm not sure about...
I got X270 for exactly that: i7-7600, 16Gb ram, 512Gb SSD, installed extra SSD in WAN card place. Comes with FHD screen, USB-C port and couple USB-A ports and ethernet(!!). You can even swap battery if needed. Great little working machine.

X399D8A-2T: ASRock Rack > X399D8A-2T
Threadripper with 10Gb ports and lots pf PCIE slots.
I'd check if you need more then 128Gb of memory (I think that's Ryzen limit). If you...
I assume you're using Add-in cards, right? I was playing with two of those in single system (C612 Also, Dual Xeon 2683v3). I tried to run mdadm raid0 and reached 9500MBps seq read.
Just tested using crystaldisk mark and getting 5600MBPS seq read off single drive. Interestingly, that similar...
