PC Build of the week – 5900X & RTX 3080 CREATE MorpheusTeam CREATE PCs
The PC we have selected as the custom PC of the week is this CREATE Morpheus AMD, for our customer Danny based in Manchester. His new PC has the following specification:
- AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Processor
- MSI Suprim X RTX 3080 Graphics Card
- ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F Gaming Motherboard
- Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB 3600MHz (2x16GB) Memory
- Seagate FireCuda 520 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD storage drive
- 2x 2TB Seagate BarraCuda HDD in RAID0
- Corsair H100i All in One water cooler for the CPU
- Corsair RM850X 850W 80 + Gold Power Supply
- Corsair iCue 4000X RGB Black Case
What we really like about this PC besides the obvious ultimate performance of the 5900X and RTX 3080 combo, is the way all the components come together in a lovely combination. It’s well thought out, with the Corsair 4000X case and its RGB fans, coupled up with the H100i with the RGB pump head, these combined giving fantastic air flow through the case helping to cool the GPU and CPU simultaneously.
The FireCuda 520 is PCIe 4.0 ready, so maximum bandwidth is available using the X570 motherboard. This means connections from the processor to the M.2 are at the fastest possible speed available right now, as well as communication to the graphics card also in a PCIe 4.0 x16 slot.
Our customer wanted the BarraCuda’s for storage of music, games and videos but wanted performance favoured over reliability, so in this instance we recommended a RAID0 set up, taking two 2TB HDD and setting up RAID in the motherboard’s BIOS, this means 4TB total combined storage with 2x read and write speeds.
The MSI Suprim X 3080 has two threaded holes at one end, so we agreed with our customer to make a custom bracket to support the weight of the GPU (it is very big and heavy) and prevent sag. Now this particular graphics card does come with a stand which you can put inside the PC case but while this is a solid solution, its not the best looking. So the bracket we fitted is hidden away and attached to the case chassis. A very sturdy solution indeed.
BIOS updated, Windows 10 installed, stress-testing complete and fans tuned, this PC was ready to ship to our customer.
