Description

I updated my case to the Deepcool Gamerstorm Baronkase (which was unfortunately missing on the PCpartpicker list), and it brought new life to my otherwise semi up-to-date build, any criticisms of the build are absolutely welcome.

great build but is the cpu a bottleneck?

Nah I have the same CPU and GPU combo works fine

All depends on what your uses are. I wouldn't call a 6800K + Vega 56 a bottleneck, and that CPU is about the same speed as this one.

if you put an awful cpu with a 2080ti then the cpu will bottleneck the 2080ti. Because the cpu has to process the gpu output.

You're right in that if a terrible CPU has to process a lot of GPU output, then it can bottleneck. But it's not an absolute thing, because different workloads involve different amounts of communication between system components. If the GPU only rarely has to pass data to the CPU, for example, then you can have a terrible CPU paired with several powerful GPUs and still not bottleneck.

More realistically, if you're gaming at 1440p or 4K, then the GPU has to work harder and the CPU has more time to "catch up," which is what I was getting at. Most gaming benchmarks will tell you that CPU bottlenecks tend to fade away at higher resolutions.

True, but isn't 4K harder on the CPU? And my guess is he's gaming @ 1080p where a newer cpu would help. But i ran a 1070 and a ryzen 3 1300x for a long while with little bottlenecks.

I like that you chose metallic RAM rather than RGB. It keeps the interior from getting too busy and has a great directional glow.
