The placeholder.

Build Description

This is my mess of a workbench and gaming area with sub-par storage techniques, I need more shelves and boxes. I play games, do research, and tinker with tech. The PC I'm currently using is a minor upgrade from a previous build which featured a 2nd gen I5 with essentially all the same other specs. I built it because I needed something with even a marginal amount of performance improvement. I call it a placeholder because I have stared a build around the Ryzen 5800x and an MSI Tomahawk X570 WIFI motherboard and I'm waiting on an RTX 3080 like soo many others. I intend to upgrade the ram to 16GB if the motherboard will accept a 4x4GB RAM configuration.

Favorite Feature

The giant cpu cooler, it looks ridiculous and barely fits in the case.
