Back in November my aging i7 6700K system built back in 2016 got updated, the new system is built around:

  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU
  • Asus ROG Strix B550-F motherboard
  • Crucial Ballistix MAX 32GB DDR 4000 RAM*
  • Artic Liquid Freezer II 280 CPU All-in-One watercooler
  • MSI GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING X TRIO
  • NZXT H710 case
  • NZXT C850 PSU
  • It used my existing Sabrent 2TB NVME drive.

New Ryzen 5900X build

*this was purchased prior to general availability and before difficulty in overclocking the FCLK became apparent.

Review: It is fast, and now plays Minecraft with raytracing enabled, well enough (for now).
