Only got a bad picture, but I will get better ones later. Here’s my machine:

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
ASUS Prime B450 PLUS
Corsair Vengeance 32GB 3200MHz DDR4
Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC
Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooling
bequiet! DX500 Case

My monitor is a LG 34GN850-B. Maybe I will replace my MoBo soon, but I am unsure if it’s worth :thinking:


If I take my rig apart to post pictures of it to strangers on a public forum, I’ll probably never be able to put it back together again.

As if you got your hands on a 3090. Worth more than gold that now!

Not my rig, but same model.

My Core basics
TUF Gaming FX505DT
AMD Ryzen 5 3550H
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650
16.0 GB RAM

With my settings optimized to hit a balance between performance and visuals, I get fluid frame rates 99.9% of the time, even flying over London.


Are you saying I don’t have one?:thinking:

Ha, no I mean your lucky to have one. last year I could only get my hands on the 3060 on release day and even that was hard going.

@GAZ340 hows the 3060 handling the graphics? thinking of getting one in the next couple of days.

It does well. To be fair I don’t have a 4k monitor (yet) but on my full HD 60hz monitor, with settings set to ultra I find I handles good. I don’t do all this frame rate stuff, but scenery/aircraft/weather all flow well and I don’t see stutters. What varient are you looking at?

pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I’m hoping to score a 3060ti at a decent price or maybe any 3070 also if the price is right.

I had a radeon rx 480 8GB I bought new in 2017 and it handled things pretty good on high end with clouds turned up at 1080p 60hz. it blew up 3 days ago, like literally sparks and a boom loud enough to scare me. never seen anything like it. power had gone out and just as it came back on, boom. fortunately the rest of my rig survived.

I really don’t get the hype with the LEDs. Probably because my casing is 15 years old and you can’t seem them anyway. But I really had problems finding decent RAM that would fit under my bequiet! CPU cooler. All the 3600MHZ chips with LEDs I tried wouldn’t fit :slight_smile:

Full custom liquid cooling loop.
2 x 480 rad.
Dual D5 pump’s (series)

Old(er) CPU + motherboard
(Started life as an Intel anniversary build with an 8086k, waiting for next gen with ddr5 before next upgrade)
64gb ddr4 3600
Rtx 3090 (custom backplate cooling block in addition to regular cooling block)
2 x 1Tb nvme in motherboard slots.
1 X 2Tb Sata SSD.

All components run very cool indeed.

Nice, I like that green RGB on the memory sticks.

Here’s my setup.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5950X
GPU: Asus TUF 3090 OC (vertical mount)
RAM: Gskill Trident Z Neo 64 GB 3600 Mhz CL16
Motherboard: Asus TUF x570 Pro
Case: Corsair Obsidian 500D


Nice setup as well, it’s cool to see the vertical mounted 3090 TUF, this card is a beast.

My RGB configuration is set to change depending on the CPU temperature from green to red. While playing MSFS it stays mostly at yellow to orange.
