    I am really a no fan of Ryzen CPU and 3000 series GPU

    • Green and Blue RGB style (matching Razer style)
    • Small Display panel monitoring the heat and performance
    • Razer logos decals / stickers here and there
    • Razer peripherals great choices (no Razer Raptor?)
    • 9 fans (I only have 8)
    • Clean cable management (chassis and outside), you have graduated from the "The Verge" video
    • Compacted desk area (best for total focus on games, work etc)
    • Great choice of colours of curtain, wallpaper, desk, carpet that sync well together
    8 / 10
    2 point loss due to CPU and GPU choice~~

    I think 16 GB RAM is enough for now, but 32 GB can be your next upgrade

    Thanks for the input
    I will be getting a ram upgrade and eventually a new GPU when the market sorts itself out what CPU would you have gone for? Its also a shame Razer don't do 21:9 Raptor as it would have defiantly been my first choice.

    Try test out your benchmark for your battlestation results~~~
    Battlestation builders enjoyment: is to try OC gently for the best benchmark score

    Whatever number you get, you should be proud of what you have built. Try hit the UFO level
    I once had a budget build battlestation. Which was not the greatest, but I still liked the outcome of what I have built.

    I had my disappointing AMD CPU experience before Dr. Lisa Su days. Ryzen series definitely made a strong debut, but still my favor of choice is Intel, due to the followings (my opinions)~~
    • Stable power consumption and clock work when handling very intense graphics related applications
    • I still have a PC running i7-3770K, still a good CPU even till today (rival of AMD during the launch was no match for it)
    • This is a bit biased, but I like the name Intel
    You are right, thanks to scalpers and shopping bots they keep taking it all!
    The 3060 debuted later, but 3000 series have poor reputation of the followings (in my opinion)~~
    • 3080 series blacked out at 2 GHz clock. I believe the issue has been resolved
    • Not sure about 3060, but all other 3000 series cannot mine Gamma zsilver
    I wish RAZER could release some new monitors, not your fault.

    PC is incomplete without a HDD or SSD

    I've always been in the blue camp for CPUs but unfortunately ASrock B550 Razer Edition only comes in AM4 socket.
    I think I will be going for an AMD RX 6800 or 6900 GPU eventually.
