kuhla Posted December 9, 2022 Report Share Posted December 9, 2022 Has been up and running for a few days. I guess it's worth a post. Same monitors as before. Both 27". One IPS and 1440p. One TN and 1080p. Likely will target this for the next upgrade after a new GPU. CPU: AMD Ryzen 7700x CPU Cooler: Deepcool AK620 https://www.deepcool.com/products/Cooling/cpuaircoolers/AK620-High-Performance-CPU-Cooler/2021/13067.shtml Motherboard: Gigabyte B650 AUros Pro AX https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B650-AORUS-PRO-AX-rev-1x#kf Was not actually my first choice. I was initially looking at a cheaper board but my first choice was out of stock at the time I had to buy (bundle deal). I'm still very satisfied with this choice though. RAM: G.Skill Flare X5 Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-6000 Same GPU as before. GTX 1080. Hoping for a new one soon. Case: Lian Li O11 Air Mini Same PSU as before. Corsair AX860. Install and setup went as smooth as anyone could possibly hope for. Quickly updated the BIOS. Loaded EXPO profile for the memory and it worked straight away. Is very quiet at idle and not that loud at load. The cooling seems very sufficient. Have consistently noticed a performance bump in games but not too much since I'm mostly GPU limited. Every day tasks were already plenty fast and there may be some change there but it might be mostly placebo. The goal of this build was to avoid any really unnecessary costs and future-proof for a few years (although that didn't benefit me that much on my last build from 2017). Hopefully I'm good for a while again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
