Hello everyone. Since my last build posted here I changed some things in my life, including my job and currently I am working as a game and hardware reviewer for a Romanian website called ZonaIT. For this particular job my old build wasn't powerfully enough so with the help of my boss and the guys from ASUS ROG, I managed to create this powerful beast. In the near future I would like to upgrade it even further with a custom water cooling system and some other stuff like that, but we'll see how things pan out to be.

As for the hardware:

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X - After reviewing it I knew I had to get one. This is the best value gaming CPU and it provides me the power I need to run the RTX 2080 at its full potential. Pretty cool, powerful and easy to upgrade.

ROG Crosshair VIII Impact - A beastly board that supports pretty much any Ryzen 3000 CPU. At this moment I am running a 3950X for testing and it's no problem for this little mobo. Provides me with all the stuff I need and I couldn't be happier.

ROG Strix RTX 2080 - Coming from a GTX 1070 this was a huge upgrade and in 1440p at 144Hz I really felt this card when it landed in my PC. Willing to cool it even further with a custom water cooling system but for the moment is cool enough to not worry me.

Corsair Crystal 280X - Loved the looks and the dual-chamber design and it was big enough to fit everything, but small enough for me to love it :D

Other notable hardware, well, not much. Pretty ordinary parts aside those four I talked about and I will leave you with the pictures of my little corner where I spend my day working and playing.

Nice! Just asking, how's the Kingston SSDs going?

Very well I might say :D I use it only to store games and the other SSD is for OS. I am pleased with how everything works so far and after using the Kingston A2000 for gaming storage I've seen a big upgrade when it comes do download speeds. From 60-65MB/s I went up to around 100MB/s.

P.S.: Yeah, here in Romania the internet is stupidly fast and I only pay around 10 bucks/month for 1Gbps connection trough fiber.

Sweet! Also, 10 dollars a month?! Here in the U.S. we pay around $100 for high-speed internet.

Did you need any adapter for the Cryorig cooler? I get a warning that I may need one.
