Build Description

I built this rig because I have a passion for building Pcs and wanted to take advantage of downtime during the pandemic as I figured if not now then when? It had been about 11 years since I built a rig for myself though I have built a few for others over that period of time. Coming from a 1st Gen Sandybridge 2700K (which still works perfectly might I add.) This thing is pure beast, my only regret is that I didn't build a Ryzen Threadripper. I build mobile apps, websites and graphic design, also do a little music production. In this build I have a:
Ryzen 9 5950x recently upgraded from 3900x
Asrock Taichi x570 MB
Asrock 5700xt tiachi
64GB x Gskill trident ram @ 3600mhz
3x 980 PRO PCIE 4.0 NVME
1x team group ssd
6x Thermaltake pure rgb fans
2x 360mm radiators
Phantek Evolv X with custom front panel
Cable mods cable extensions
Custom loop
Would like to upgrade graphic card to 6900xt or 3090.
In hindsight would have went with a different case
I also play Ghost Recon in my spare time, and this system run amazingly.

Favorite Feature

Custom loop, this was my first time with water cooling.
