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.
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.
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...
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.

Any changes I should make? I'm carrying over my 1080Ti until the 3080Ti comes out. I am planning on upgrading to Zen 3...
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
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...
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...
My current rig has been running for almost 5 years and is still going strong:
