My new Ryzen and Radeon PC. Feat. Ryzen 7 3700X and Radeon RX 5700.

Yay! For the first time in a long time, I splashed on a new PC and now I have the latest AMD technology, 7 nanometer, might I add. And it feels good. I am really happy with it so far. I am a bit tired when I am typing this post so I will probably just keep it simple, or maybe not because you know how I like to digress. But anyway, I have been busy testing it and forming opinions and thoughts on it. But so far it is positive.

Sorry for the long specifications. I put a lot of detail there. Anyway, here are some pictures.



Liquid cooling is very helpful on the thermally dense 7nm CPUs. In FPU workloads the doubled width of the pipes also makes more heat that I have noticed.

Firebox is Reborn.

My first case with tempered glass.

It's under my desk now. (I just wanted more desk space). It still looks cool though!

X570 Chipset, Graphics Card intake and the Copper heatsink on the PCIE4.0 SSD all receive direct intake airflow. This is from when I was trying the low profile cooler (temperatures were a bit too high for my liking hence the AIO).

The blower-design cooler actually works best in my case configuration.


I am cutting this post short, I was going to type a few more bits about some stuff but I have since seen (intercepted and destroyed) an enormous spider in my room and now I must prepare for all-out warfare as September is usually a month of high spider activity.


I am absolutely terrified of spiders.
