Had my gaming pc since 2016. 6700K on Z390 MB 32GB 2400 ram CL14 SLI 1070 HX750i PSU BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 3 512 NVME, 512 Sata SSD, 3TB HDD many LEDs Corsair 400C case Most of my gaming comprises of Heroes 3, Disciples 2,Diablo 2,Warcraft 3, not exactly frame killers. The recent need for a workstation capable of running an enterprise server had me reuse my PC and had a chat with Santa for an early gift. I didn't really care to follow the developments of the market but I've been pleasantly surprised by the enhancements one can get now. New workstation pc from the ashes of my old one: AMD 3900X 12 cores/24 threads on Aorus X570 Elite(12+2 phase VRM) 64GB 3200 CL16 ram Single 1070 HX750i PSU Stock AMD cooler(waiting for the adaptor bits for the BeQuiet) 256NVME boot, 1TB NVME Samsung 970 for VM, 1TB sandisk and 512 samsung pro SSD, 7TB + 3TB HDD Corsair 400C case still many LEDs, the most hilarious colourful workstation The main VM using VMWare is running 20 cores and 50GB Ram, the compile times have reduces to almost nothing, much more snappy, it's hard to believe a quad core is ancient technology now. So happy to be back on AMD, my previous one was a Duron. The stock cooler can barely keep the temps down and is always ramping up, quite noisy and not ideal with MySphere. The Dark Rock Pro 3 can handle 250W TDP, more than enough for the 3900X. I don't plan on any overclocking but will increase the power and temperature targets to let the standard processes push the CPU as far as it can.
