After a lot of reading and hesitation, this will be my first build ever

CASENcase M1 v6.1 Silver
CASE FanNoctua NF-A9x14 PWM Chromax
PSUCorsair SF750
MOBOAsus ROG Strix B550-I
CPUAMD Ryzen 9 5950x
CPU CoolerNZXT Kraken x53
CPU FansNoctua NF-A12x25 PWM (x2)
GPUZotac RTX-3090 Trinity OC deshroud
GPU FansNoctua NF-A12x25 PWM (x2)
RAMCrucial Ballistix DDR4-3600 C16 2x16GB
SSDSabrent Rocket 2TB

The case is still at the customs and I'm waiting for the delivery of the CPU and the GPU...

Let's see how long it will take

Edit 26/03 :
Ncase received
Initially ordered a TUF 3080 OC with a price guaranteed until 30/04 but not even sure I'll get one before September apparently...
They offered me a Zotac 3090 Trinity OC from an "unhappy" customer so I went for it
Still in line for the CPU (5900x and 5950x) which should arrive mid-April

Edit 06/04 :
Missed the delivery for AMD restock at my store, I'm now 11th position for 5950x and 160th for 5900x
Better chance to get my hand 5950x first but not before June apparently ...
I might take a 5800x in the meantime

Edit 12/04 :
Received the tray version of the 5950x, I'm ready for action 🥳
Edit 12/04 bis :
Apparently a mistake, a box version just left the store, I have to send back the tray one
I should assemble everything by the end of the week

Edit 13/04 :
Boxed version received, tray one sent back

Cable management nightmare !

Final result

Didn't mount the Noctua A9 as I notice, while building, it was not the 14mm version 😩

Thermals are ok, 60°C while playing 1440p
Will see when 4K TV will arrive but I'm afraid of the VRAM as I noticed it was reaching high temps while benchmarking the card
It's on the back of the card, and even with the A9 on the rear, it's not helping
I might water-cool it...

Hey Fred,

I've read from other configs with the 5950 that some people have had to set the PPT in the bios to 120 down from the 140 default. Have you had to under clock the cpu on this? Is that 60 degree C reading you're getting at standard 140 PPT?

Hi 124C41

Sorry for the late (late) reply

To be honest I didn't touch anything on the CPU nor GPU
I've put the Asus Auto Performance in the BIOS which set the frequency of the CPU to 4GHZ... Always...
And for the power, I don't even know...

I'll check once my setup will be up and running again

After receiving the LG 55C1 and played some Ultra 4K games, I've noticed the VRAM was around 90°C as an average and it was a bit noisy

I decided to watercool the GPU as well, which means, custom loop
