    Can't believe it's 2021 (the year of GPU shortages, mind you) and we don't have a "Post Your PC's" thread stickied.

    Post up your PC's, no matter how ghetto or how 'daddy's money'.

    Here's mine:

    Specs:
    Phanteks Enthoo Evolv X case
    ASUS TUF Gaming B450m MOBO
    AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU
    ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 ROG Strix Gaming OC GPU
    16GB DDR4 3200Mhz RAM
    Deep Cool GAMMAXX GTE V2

    Recently redid my PC about a month or so ago, coming from an Intel Haswell series CPU so it had been a long time coming. Now I use:

    Case: Silverstone SG09
    Mobo: Asus Z490 G mATX
    CPU: Intel Core i9 10900k
    RAM: 32GB DDR4 3600Mhz
    GPU: EVGA RTX 3080 XC3 Ultra
    PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2
    Drive 1: 2TB Samsung 970 Evo NVME
    Drive 2: 2TB Samsung 870 Evo SSD
    Drive 3: 2TB Western Digital Black

    It also has a little slot load DVD drive, and a bunch of Noctua fans. The case has been a total pita to build in, but it's worth it having everything all together. Here's an old pic of it before I redid the cable routing. I'll get a better one of it soon since I just got in from a trip out of town!

    Computer #2 consists of a bunch of parts from my old system that I moved into an ITX case for use as a living room gaming/HTPC setup. It has:

    Case: Silverstone RVZ-01
    Mobo: Asus Maximus VI Impact
    CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k
    RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
    GPU: EVGA RTX 3070 XC3 Ultra
    PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GM
    Drive 1: 1TB Crucial MX500 SSD
    Drive 2: 1TB Western Digital Black

    This PC will likely be upgraded within the year, as the core system is definitely a bottleneck for the GPU, though it's not too big of a deal right now considering what it is used for.

    Oh, forgot to mention that the CPU cooler I'm using for the 10900k is the Noctua NH-D15S up there -- it has to be the S model in order to fit in that case. As you can tell, it just barely does even then!

    Next upgrade stuff will probably be a new monitor and a chair that actually has back support... .-.

    I also have 2 2TB Western Digital Black HDDs that I use for samples and recording drives. I run with 2-27" Samsung 4K Monitors.

    For the studio stuff:
    Focusrite Clarett 8 Pre USB
    Yamaha HS8
    KRK 10" sub
    dbx 286s mic pre
    Axe FX III
    Ace FX IIXL

    I use Nuendo in the studio these days. I have way too much equipment and other stuff. The computer keeps up with pretty much anything that I throw at it. The 8700K is unlocked, but I currently do not overclock it. I did have an overclock profile set up, but at some point the computer blue screened and I had to reload Windows to get it going again. I'm not sure if it was related to the overclock or not, but I haven't needed to overclock the CPU to keep up with current activities so I have left it alone. I think that I am a little ways off from upgrading, but I will most definitely keep the case. It is a full tower and just sits in the corner silently. It is completely black and hides all of the RGB stuff, but it is dead silent. Under heavy load, you don't hear the computer running at all and that is in a treated room. I highly recommend these cases as they are designed to be silent with sound baffling coming stock in the computer. The full tower helps it to stay cool, but it is a huge case.

    Ordered the parts late 2019, built in the first week of 2020. In hindsight, my timing was pretty much perfect as this was right before prices went insane.

    Those NH-D15s are beasts. I upgraded last summer and included one of those. I don't remember all the specs, but the important bits are that it's a 10600k, tuf z490, and a gtx1080, a whole bunch of old harddrives, and I still have a dvd drive in here (not bluray lol).

    The NH-D15 is great, even if a bit expensive, but I really needed a good air cooler for the 10900K. I like Noctua stuff a lot though -- I used the NH-D14 for years and years before this one. They have great performance but also tend to do well in the noise department.

    Honestly I'm looking at the 10600 as a possible future upgrade for my HTPC/girlfriend's gaming pc lol. It's hard to say no to the 10th gen Intel stuff now in terms of price to performance.

    I still use a DVD drive, too, even if it only gets very occasional use. Hard to let go! But I guess there is always a usb drive option.

    My PC is really hard to take pics of because everything is blacked out and I only use some blue from the rgb.

    Corsair case, intel 9700k, blacked out noctua cooler, MSI mobo, EVGA 3070, EVGA power supply, two Samsung ssd’s. I also use a 27 inch 1440p predator monitor and Logitech g560 speakers with backlight. I really think the gsync monitor was one of the best upgrades, can’t go back at all now.
