    In a month or two things will normalize. Just hold off until then.

    New Gaming/Streaming Build

    Yeah but these Ryzen chips have higher ipc right? Does PBO give near max overclock? I kind of like this set and forget overclock feature. I think I might get some 4000mhz ram and underclock to 3600 until Zen 3. Also rumors of 3900XT might be true so probably smart to wait for that.

    First build where budget isn’t everything.

    Why do you have 21 fans? Those are triple packs you have added. Are you building an airplane? :p Not sure why you wouldn't want a gold rated psu but whatevs. I'm doing a similar build so have fun with it.

    New Gaming/Streaming Build

    Yes I plan on OC'ing and i like to keep my computer as long as I can with gpu and cpu drop in upgrades rather than build a whole new system that's why I want higher end parts. I rather spend a few hundred extra than build a whole new system in a couple years so that's my reasoning for the case...

    New Gaming/Streaming Build

    I'm coming from my rig in my sig which has been going strong for almost 5 years now and I've got a upgrade itch. My build: Any changes I should make? I'm carrying over my 1080Ti until the 3080Ti comes out. I am planning on upgrading to Zen 3...

    New gaming pc which one?

    Why would you go z390 and cut off any future upgrade path? Anyway I would pick PC 2 because AMD has newer tech and Zen 3 is around the corner for possible upgrade.

    Ryzen 3900XT, 3800XT, and 3600XT allegedly to be announced by June 16th

    I'm new to AMD but doing a new build for it soon. To overclock a 3900XT it supposedly supports Infinity Fabric Speed (FLCK) of 2000mhz does that mean I need to get ddr4-4000 to get the most out of the cpu? Will Zen 3 support a even higher FLCK? I've been reading this for reference: Corsair OC Guide

    X570 advise please.

    Why would anyone go B550 over x570? I don't really understand the point of those boards.

    Compatible PCIe 4.0 z490 Boards

    Is there a list of compatible PCIe 4.0 z490 Boards? Yes I know I'll supposedly have to wait for Intel 11th gen cpu's I'm just looking to "future proof" lul.

    Intel 10th Gen Mobo Recommendation

    Hi I'm building a new system soon and looking at these two boards: Asus ROG Strix Z490-A Asus ROG Maximus XII Hero Other than the fancier built in audio(which I won't use) and other fancy things am I missing out on much going with the Strix board? I like it because I'm going with a black/white...

    Build Now or Wait?

    Well my computer started restarting randomly while gaming so that's a problem.. Getting DistributedCOM warnings in event viewer but not sure what the problem is. What if I kept my 1080ti and upgraded to the 3080ti this summer. Are the new intel cpu's going to be a big improvement still being on...
