Notes

Probably want M.2 NVMe form factor SSD. (Not one that uses the old SATA bus.)

Consider buying Windows 10 from Kinguin or carrying over a key.

My older computer is a Lenovo IdeaCentre K330.

The Build

Start with The Magnificent AMD Gaming/Streaming Build. Tracking my build at this Customized Magnificent AMD 8-core Build.

  • CPU Upgraded from AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core to AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core
  • ✅ Drop the CPU Cooler, we're not going to be overclocking.
  • ✅ Swap their Storage for another 1TB NVMe SSD.
    • ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
  • Power Supply Permalink "Wouldn’t it be better to have a Corsair RM 750 instead of an Evga semi-modular PSU?"
    • "Don't be afraid of semi modular as the "semi-modular" part is a cable you're required to use anyway."
    • Default was out-of stock. Heard the default was noisy. Went with "be quiet! Straight Power 11 Platinum 550W, BN640, Fully Modular, Power Supply"
  • Motherboard Permalink "For anyone that's a USB Junkie like me, I'd recommend Gigabytes Aorus Elite MB which is only $30 more. Along with other upgrades, it swaps the 2 PS/2 Slots for 4 USB."
    • Was: Asus PRIME X570-P ATX AM4 Motherboard
    • Is: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard
  • ✅ The Case

Configuration Notes

To getWSL 2 to work, I had to go into Bios (Del key during boot? I forgot) and enable Virtualization. For me, it was Tweaker → SVM Mode.

To configure the fans' rates, run GIGABYTE → Launch APP Center → SIV (System Information Viewer)

I force the CPU fan to remain at one constant rate until it gets too hot.

All the other fans I have on a curve.

Things To Do

Check that the video card supports the resolution of the monitor I have. Check which video connections it has.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER

  • Ports: DisplayPort and HDMI
  • Maximum Resolution: 7680x4320
