Dox your PC builds -


pEoPlE aRe DyInG!
I just assembled my bro's PC for Christmas.

Ryzen 5 1600
RX 470 Nitro 4GB
ASUS B350 Prime-Plus motherboard
480GB SSD, 1TB Hard Drive
Deepcool Matrexx 55 RGB model.

I'm trading it for his old PC though, which was
Xeon x3440
R9 285 2GB
and some Asus oem board with a lepa case

GNew to the community, but heres my contribution

CPU: Ryzen 9 3950x
Cooler: AORUS Liquid Cooler 360 (3 x 120mm)
GPU: RTX 2080Ti
RAM: 64GB (4x16GB) DDR4 3600MHz
SSD: 512GB Samsung 970 Pro
HDD: 4 x 14 TB Seagate Barracuda Pro
Mobo: Aorus Master X570
Case: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic XL
Extra Fans: 7x Cooler Master ML120R

Was gonna go Threadripper since I do a lot of production work but supply problems.

Affluent Reptilian
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9700K CPU @ 3.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
G.Skill 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 Trident Z 3000MHz F4-3000C15D-32GTZ
Noctua NH-D15 Multi Socket PWM CPU cooler
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Advanced 11GB
Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Ultra Motherboard
Corsair AX760 Platinum Modular 760 Power Supply

I have a shitload of storage since I don't throw out my old hard drives as I go along; the fastest thing that I have that I run the system and games from is an ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro.

Built last year with a be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 rev 2 case - great case except for the instructions being the most cryptic bullshit. Have some extra Noctua fans in there as well, although I don't get great temperatures. I have been wondering how much of that is having to forego an intake fan because I have a 5.25" drive in there. A few degrees difference would be pretty significant.

Obviously it cost a lot (not as much as the guy above me - eek), and I still cringe when I see the 2080Ti becasue I know how much it cost. But my only regret is not spending the extra $150 or whatever for the 9900k - sure, the 9700k is great for games right now, but I'm extremely apprehensive that the lack of multithreading will bite me. It already had problems with Red Dead Redemption 2 (although fixable - Rockstar didn't optimise it properly for different setups).

I suppose not getting the Z390 Master might've been a mistake, depending on how good the better-quality sound they have on that build is (has capacity for more hard drives too but I really should start replacing my aged HDDs slowly).

Oh, and the RAM is quite old, but to my understanding RAM doesn't give much of a return in gaming above a certain capacity and speed. I'll probably upgrade it sometime in the next year.

Have a Ducky TKL keyboard and a G502, as well - G502s are way too heavy and I'll try out some lightweight ergos when I have some time.

Need to do some upgrades this year first will be the GPU then probably RAM even at 32gb Sony uncompressed RAW's are bogging my system down. Then MOBO and CPU perhaps for Christmas.

I have so many mixed feelings about my set up. I originally bought the Alienware as a travel rig, but it slowly became my main machine and I now use it every day. The desktop has a bunch of issues, and I was thinking of pulling the video card out and getting one of those external GPUs, but the laptop already has a 2060 so I have no clue if its worth the $250.

CPU: i5 4690K OC'd to about 4.2 GHz
Mobo: ASRock Z97 Pro4
GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG Strix

Case is some cheapo NZXT one
Logitech G502 mouse
Corsair K70 keyboard

I started the build as a budget one in 2013-2014 with a Pentium G3258 and a GeForce 750ti and it took its current shape in late 2016, I haven't gotten any major upgrades for it since. It still runs most games I play pretty well so I'm going to hold off on upgrading anything. If/when I do upgrade in a few years I'll probably start from scratch and get whatever the performance meta is by then.

CPU: i7 8700k
Mobo: ASRock Z370 Taichi
RAM: Corsair Vengance LPX 16GB DDR4
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC
Monitor: LG 27UD58B 4K 27 Inch
Case: Corsair 780T

Speakers: Logitech Z Cinema
Mouse: Logitech G520
Keyboard: AZIO L80 (Corsair K70 Clone)

I'm still undecided to get a new GPU, maybe for Cyperpunk 2077 GOTY, I mostly use my PC for gaming and making BD remuxes.

I also have a Surface Pro 6 for chilling on the bed.

I'm aware my main build has some shittier part choices. Especially the motherboard, that's temporary because the old board died. I do want to get a Ryzen at some point, but that'll be a while I think.
Also, I edited the post to fix some mistakes.

CPU and GPU are watercooled with a custom loop with a 360mm radiator and a 280 radiator. CPU max peak was 74 and CPU hovers between 29-34 (after like 5-6 hours it will creep up to 40); these temps are under gaming loads, if I were to use a synthetic test temps would creep a bit higher.

no corona

I never intended to have three monitors, it just happened.

The first one is a Dell Ultrasharp 2410, 16:10 with a 1920x1200 resolution and a "10" bit IPS panel. It's 8 bit+FRC, but it is still very nice and it has all of the inputs. DP, HDMI, DVI, VGA, component, composite and maybe S-video, I haven't looked at the back for a while but I could hook up a NES to it and run it picture-in-picture. It's got different modes like Adobe RGB, sRGB and a game mode for lower latency. Cranking up the brightness to 100% forces me to squint, I don't remember how many knits it can put out but it's getting into HDR territory. Keeping it at 50% is more than enough. Really nice image quality that makes my kiwifarms shitposts look natural and realistic.

The second one is a cheap AOC IPS monitor, it's pretty decent for the price and I just wanted good viewing angles while reading PDFs and other content 16:X is absolute shit at.

Third one is a Dell, the U2412, yet another 16:10 IPS monitor. It's pretty decent, 6 bit+FRC like many IPS monitors, fewer inputs than the 2410 and it can't be turned up to be as bright as the sun. This was the addition I never planned to get, I picked it up when the university bought new gear, it was in perfect condition, nearly unused, very low lamp time and really cheap. I can't resist a bargain.
