Did a clean out, and refresh on water loop of my PC. New res, new CPU block, all new tubing and obviously a much over do water change (which I actually had to take apart my GPU block and give it a scrub and run cleaner through the rad.

Upgraded my 500GB SATA SSD to a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2. A nice speed upgrade and no worries on disk space.

Sorry for the size.

These were taken last year after a full clean out/rebuild, built in 2014.

Specs:
i7 4770K OC'd to 4.2
16GB DDR3
SSD's 240GB
Corsair H80i AIO Faulty
Sapphire 3GB upgraded to a EVGA GTX 1070
Coolermaster Cosmos case
Kolink 1200W PSU

It's not a bad RIG the cpu still stands up well to Ryzen gen 2 cpu's in Cinebench. I am left wondering how well this will run CP2077 though, haven't got the cash to spend on upgrading it atm. Looking at the PS5/Scarlet leaks accept from Ray Tracing I might be good leaving it a little while longer. :bang:

I've swapped out the TV for a 24" Monitor but still game on it from time to time the picture quality of some Panasonic TV's is f***ing ace.

Just out of a whim I'm updating my computer. I'm going from a i7 4790k to a ryzen 3800x. New motherboard and 16 GB of DDR 4 ram. Still rocking the rtx 2080.

Well, I've finally got around to having a new rig built! My eight year old PC is finally being put out to pasture.

Going with a 2080 Super, 32gigs of Ram, a 512GB SSD and 3 TB hard drive. Going with the Ryzen 3900x too, for the multi-threading.

Pretty excited, and the guy building it is the owner of xgamepc, so he should be pretty good.

It's out of San Antonio. My brother's wife is streamer and he built her rig originally. Then he built my brothers. After talking with him he really seemed to know his stuff. He recommended the Ryzen over the i9 because I wanted it for development too

SO ... I've finally got the thing up and running (though I'm having a time getting my old Steam account back up).

I feel like a damn tech glutton right now, lol.

Since my monitors are "only" 1920 x 1200, I'm ultra-ing everything at 60fps- with ratraycing if it's available. I've gotta say, I may be playing me some Minecraft. It's kinda mind-blowing. Picked up the Witcher 3 just to see it with every up to 11 (including hairworks!). The resolution seems to be super sharp too. Not sure why I'd even need 4k on my PC. I'm on cloud frikkin' nine from a gaming perspective.

Thanks man! My internet provider is getting serious workout right now, lol...

Got my Steam account back as well, so I'll be replaying some games like Skyrim and Battlefield 3. Looks like I'll be in the MOD rabbit hole again!
