My last PC update was over three years ago, so I decided last week to invest in a major update.

Everything changed this time.
  • CPU: i7 7700k to i7-10700KF
  • CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 to Noctua NH-D14 (technically a downgrade)
  • MOBO: Asus PRIME Z270-P ATX LGA 1151 to MSI MPG Z490 GAMING PLUS Z490
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x 16GB DDR4-3000) to 2x G.Skill Trident Z RGB F4-3200C16D-16GTZR
  • GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1070 ARMOR 8GB OC to MSI GeForce RTX 3070, 8GB, Gaming X Trio
  • PSU: Corsair CX750M to Corsair RM750
  • Case: Fractal Design Define R5 to Fractal Design Define R6
I lied. Storage did stay the same:
  • 1 TB Samsung SSD 970 EVO Nvme
  • 1 TB Samsung SSD 970 EVO PLUS Nvme
  • 500GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO SATA
  • 128GB Samsung SSD 840 PRO SATA
  • 1 TB WD HD SATA

Quick photo to show off the RGB. Sadly the RAM's RGB is blocked completely by the CPU cooler, should have known that...



Finally I can play GTA V and RDR2 on full settings at 2560x1440.

Shiieeeeettt, that's a nice upgrade!

I'm looking to upgrade my CPU and MoBo too, but I'm a bit weirded out by rumours of Windows licenses being blocked? Did you have any issues with that?
