    Post Your System Specs!

    I HAVE RETURNED....to what feels like a post apocalyptic shell of a once great city. I guess everyone went to Hard OCP., but let's see if there is life out here. Post your system specs for your current game machine.


    Current Gaming Rigs:


    Main:
    -8086K at 5GHZ
    -RTX 2080 at 2GHZ
    -32GB of Corsair DDR4 at 3200mhz
    -Samsung 950PRO NVME SSD
    -Samsung 860EVO Sata SSD
    - Asus Z270 ITX Mainboard
    -600 Watt Silverstone SFX PSU
    - All in a NCASE M1 case, with an X52 for CPU cooling.


    Living room / VR PC :

    Zotac EN1070:
    - 2.8GHZ I5-6400T
    - Nvidia GTX 1070
    - 16GB DDR4-2400 SODIMM
    - 512GB Samsung EVO M.2 SSD
    - 1TB WD Black 2.5 inch HD 7200RPM


    WOW! I returns and my first post back is post 666. Poetic?

    Iím very discrete. I have no code of brand loyalty. I will build anything, anywhere; Gaming PC, workstation, HTPC, doesnít matter. I just love building.

    I haven't upgraded much for the past few years as my CPU's are enough to get the job done (honestly speaking, Intel had stagnated with CPU architecture development for the past few gens), but I do believe in GPU upgrades. I have three rigs now:

    Main:
    Intel i7 3960X @4.1ghz
    Asus Rampage IV Extreme
    4x 4GB Corsair Dominator 2133MHz
    2x Gigabyte RX VEGA 64
    Seasonic X-1250 PSU
    64bit Win10 Pro v1809
    Acer XR341CK 75Hz Freesync 21:9 monitor/works with Gsync as well

    2nd Rig:
    Intel i7 4770K @4.2ghz
    ASRock Z87 Extreme 6
    2x 8GB Corsair Vengeance 2133MHz
    PowerColor Radeon VII
    Enermax MAX REVO 1500W
    64bit Win10 Pro v1809
    SB ZX + Samsung K651 soundbar
    Samsung LC49HG90DMEXX 32:9
    (pic below was when I had my 2x VEGA64 hooked up to the monitor, now it's the Radeon VII + i7 4770K, was running the Strange Brigade benchmark at the time)


    HTPC Rig:
    Intel i7 2600K @4.2ghz
    Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z
    4x 4GB RipJawsZ 1600MHz
    LeadTek GTX1080 Hurricane OC
    Corsair HX-1050
    64bit Win10 HE v1809
    65' Panasonic 4k TV

    I still have a PowerColor RX VEGA64 Red Devil that's coming back from RMA.....so, I might sell off either the dual VEGA64, or the Red Devil....not sure yet. Keeping the GTX1080 just to keep myself.......real?

    I haven’t run Crossfire setups since the 5970 and 7970 series. I used to run SLI setups but forced myself to stop by going ITX. What about going Radeon VII crossfire?

    Spectacular setup!

    My wife and I just did an Ikea run to get our game room properly setup. Pictures forthcoming...she's currently cursing in Bulgarian to while drilling things. I refuse to assemble Ikea furniture.

    Yesssss.... The update is everything got delayed due to having to fix the garage first. I'm hoping to make some headway this weekend.

    My 2600K HTPC rig has been sold, so my 4770K with GTX1080 has replaced it as my HTPC rig. Also built a main gaming rig (3960X and 4770K are kinda long in the tooth now), so I'd built a Ryzen unit -
    Ryzen R9 3900X (12C/24T)
    Thermaltake Water 3.0 360mm AIO
    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme
    PowerColor RX VEGA 64 Red Devil (reusing from old rig)
    4x 8GB XPG DDR4 D60G 3200 RAM
    Samsung 4TB 860 EVO + Samsung 860 QVO (games)
    6TB WD Black (games)
    2TB Seagate Barracuda (downloads, music, movies)
    CoolerMaster H500M
    Corsair HX1000 Platinum


    Awaiting big NAVI 23 to come next year before I'll upgrade the GPU, meanwhile, the Red Devil is doing pretty good in games.....it does struggle a bit in newer game @3440x1440 but still quite playable.

    I'm rather ashamed to admit my last self built PC was a socket 754 Athlon64 3000 with an ATI Radeon X850XT even though I work in IT and have no issue building PC's, that particular one was such a nightmare with having to wait for rma's and similar it put me off building a PC again and having to do the same for faulty parts. In that case it turned out the parts were all fine but the cooler was out of spec and touching part of the motherboard....sigh. I've been running an i7 3930K system for many years now but it's been struggling with wireless VR and with Ryzen processors looking great I decided to bite the bullet and build my own system.

    It's been a bit stressful working out all the compatibility as I worry about these things more than I should but now it's all together I'm much more pleased with it than I expected. I've been a member of the forums here for 16 years and particularly in the early years liked reading about all the high end parts I couldn't afford as a poor university student but this time I've splurged quite a bit on parts, wireless VR performance has been great and clearly my old system was struggling more than I thought but the most impressive part is how quiet the system is. I was alarmed when I first powered it on and it was silent thinking I've really mucked up the cabling somehow.

    This is what the new system packs:

    AMD Ryzen 9 3900x - waited for the 3950x but they were immediately out of stock and ETA's are months away
    Noctua DH 15 CPU cooler
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 64GB DDR4 3200Mhz
    Asus ROG Crosshair Hero VIII wifi
    Fractal Define R6 USB-C case
    Corsair RM850X 850W
    Geforce GTX 1070 8GB - not upgraded from the last system but the RTX cards don't seem worth it at the moment
    2TB SSD/44TB HDD storage
    Asus BD-rom



    I particularly like the case which was a struggle to choose as I wanted something with no rgb, that would fit an ATX board, that could take an optical drive and a decent number of hard drives but also fit within the tight space on my desk. The Fractal Define R6 does all that, it's quiet, has a good few ports on the front and I think it looks great. I had initially tried to order it with a solid side but they weren't in stock or silly prices but now I've seen the tempered side I'm pleased with it.

    Leviathan - AMD Ryzen 9 3900x, Noctua NH D15 Cromax, Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR 3200Mhz, Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB, 2TB SSD/44TB HDD. Fractal Design R6, Corsair RM850X
