5900x 3080 Watercooled #Bitwit

by Garret N Posted on: 9/9/2021

Build Description

I built this PC as a replacement for my first budget PC build. My original PC was intended to be an extreme budget PC and included a Ryzen APU to use for graphics as well. I wanted to try my hand at watercooling as well with a custom hardline loop. I use this build for everything from playing games like Warzone and The Witcher 3, to rendering CAD models and 3D printing.

Favorite Feature

My favorite feature of this build is the great temps as well as the noise level. Max of 80C on CPU during benchmark, Max of 47C on GPU during benchmark.
