5900X / 3080

Build Description

AMD 5900X Build as a Workstation and Gaming. This PC has been very impressive for performance and is a large upgrade from my 8700K/1080TI PC. Rendering times have been reduced by over 50% and gaming is effortless unless running a title like Cyberpunk.

Favorite Feature

I was very happy to be able to fit the 280mm rad into the top mount location of the case. That allowed for a very clean install and a good airflow path. I have heard that depending on your motherboard this may not be an options though, since the LanCool is only "rated' for mounting a 240mm in the top mount location.
