thinking about going from 5600x to 5950 and from rtx 3070 ti to rtx 3090.

Just seen this, GPU is worth doing, hold off on the CPU, expect price cuts after the 7000 series launches, then get the 5950X.
ok i did it i purchased this at newegg come to daddy.
Nice, good choice.
and im bumping up psu and got this
Another good choice.

Get some pictures and benchmarks up as soon as you've finished putting it together buddy.

It looks good, though there were a couple of things you might want to look at:

  • the 4-pin CPU power cable, route it straight back and down so it doesn't reach out in front of the fans where it will collect dust over time
  • fan cables/misc cables at the front of the case could be routed behind the red bar so they are not visible, or routed up/down the side of the fans and concealed
  • 24-Pin power connector for mobo would look better coming out at a 90 degree angle and then folding back, it makes for cleaner looking lines
  • you know I am going to talk about RGB right? You should have played Donna Summer's "I feel love" to match that 70's Disco theme you have going on with your RGB
  • yeah, everyone's a critic
  • I like the colour scheme by the way

Well done, get some benchmarks done, and some gameplay footage loaded up.


with thickness of 24 pin its kinda crunched in there because of the red bar. ive never liked that red bar. i didnt notice that cpu cable by fan till after i put the back on. im thinking of removing red bar. will the case your using hold a 360 radiator and does it have good airflow.

I think it would hold a 360, but that would mean taking out the hdd trays and removing the cover at the bottom by the front of the case and might make it hard to get the water pipes managed neatly, the model up is better.

As for the 24-pin cable, see if you can find some pictures of builds in that case to see how others have dealt with it, PCPartpicker will have plenty of designs on show.

That bar is the standout feature in your case, it is an excellent device that can conceal cables if done right, but you will need to see some other designs, maybe look at a replacement 24-pin cable, possibly a flat RGB design, there are a lot of cable mod companies that will make cables for your PSU. You could get the full set, 24-pin, 4-pin CPU and GPU and match them for a totally custom look.

Then that would only leave your fan cables to deal with, and the header cable for the CPU AIO block, which also stands out a little at the top.

thinking about going from 5600x to 5950 and from rtx 3070 ti to rtx 3090.

Are you still thinking about a CPU upgrade?

I just watched this video:

The best gaming CPU in AMD's line up is still the 5800X3D.

The 5900X and 5950X only really make sense if you're a creator, gaming performance falls short against the 5800X3D.


im going to check that out and ebay seller sent cablemod kit for asus rog thor so im working on a return, may end up ordering straight from cablemod.


PC Gamer: Nearly Dangerous
Yeah, you have a sweet rig, look up the performance difference for your CPU versus the 5800X3D, you will see an improvement, but I don't think you will see anything near the gains you got when you added the 3090.


PC Gamer: Nearly Dangerous
The difference between the 5600X vs the 5800X3D is bigger than I expected, I was honestly expecting it to be around 3%-5% and not as high as 15%-30%.

With a price difference of an extra 25%-30%, the question I would be asking is are you really getting the uplift you think you will get for the money you have to spend?

In other words, are you getting your money's worth when you buy the upgrade and aiming you sell the old CPU?

In this video, the reviewer didn't think the difference between the 2 CPUs was as big as the difference you have seen but check out the video and link the video you watched so I can compare the differences.



i watched youtube comparisons and in some games there was a difference and in others no. modern warfare and warzone was biggest and i play that the most and yes ill be selling 5600x. i look for video and post it.
