Anyone running a plex server? I just got around to setting one up and am really impressed by the features. Like netflix but for torrents.

I was going to opt for the blacked out Cooler Master with ARGB for my build, but IMO the stock cooler for my Ryzen 3700x (Wraith Prism LED) performs very nice even at a small overclock and looks great for a stock cooler.
That is a pretty build. I'm jealous of the aesthetics. If only the "Sapphire" could be white. The AMD stock coolers, in general, are pretty solid, and unless you're doing some heavy overclocks or are working in very small form factors where airflow is an issue they should be fine.

O yea well you suck as a PERSON. Lol

Tbh I cant remember, it was like 5 years ago. I think I just did it handheld and took some light out in post, it was pretty close to sunset and perfect lighting. I do remember standing there for like 45 minutes waiting for a clear shot with no people haha
Bro that 45 min was worth the wait, I'd hang that in the office next to my battlestation

Thanks. I have tried a ton of different color settings on it, and I definitely found an all white with a blue "twinkle" effect to give me my best aesthetic. The only bummer, like you said, is that the Sapphire logo on my 5700xt and the outer ring of the AMD cooler can't be controlled (Sapphire is permanently red and the AMD ring is a slow rainbow effect).

All the performance numbers I have seen showed the stock cooler to be more than sufficient for the 3700x, but an aftermarket cooler seems to be more beneficial as soon as you move up to the 3800x or larger. Depending upon what next gen looks like price-wise, my wife might get this as my hand me down and I might try my hand at another build! 🤣🤣🤣

I wanna know about all the cords in the box on the left
You mean the ones next to the duct tape and dildos?

Bro all my cords are in Ziplocs by type, ethernet, micro USB, USB-C, lightning...I don't play that disorganized shit. Except when I work ground in SWAP.

All AMD new machine, they're killing it right now
I'm thinking the RX 6800XT with the 5600X might be the most balanced combo in regards to price and performance. The RX 6800XT will probably guarantee 1440P gaming over 100fps for the next several years easily. The 2 extra cores for the 5800x are nice, but are they worth the extra $150 for that and .1GHz at the cost of over 50% more power draw and (I'm guessing) dramatically increased thermals?

In any event, RIP Intel.

I just got a custom build from NZXT with a 3090 since they were sold out of the 3080, they charge MSRP for everything and only $99 to build it. 2 year warranty on everything. PC is crazy fast. RTX3090, i9-10900k, 32gb Ram
