Very oddly RDR2 is one of the few games I have not seen benefit from this upgrade, same perf as before, but I have been tweaking settings to get a bigger boost.  Must be their ultra settings that bottleneck modern systems.
CPU: Ryzen 9 5900X @5Ghz - RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 64 GB (2 x 32 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 - GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING 24GB

Someone in Discord asked me to list out the price of everything and my full specs.
$0 is for items I had from previous build.

Doc how do you like your new Ryzen 5900X?  Could it be run on an air cooler rather than water cooling?
I'm actually thinking of getting the 5950X since I can upgrade to that without having to change my board (a great feature with AMD systems).  I also want to run it on air cooling only.  Is there a high end air cooler you could recommend for that cpu?

So far I am not disappointed with how it performs, but I recommend a larger air cooler like the one I purchased, definitely helps with thermals.

I was going to get one, but even with everything I do the performance gains are minimal

Sounds like the extra cores and threads dont get used.  5900X is probably the better purchase then and runs cooler.

Nice. If I sell my car I may be able to build a similar system. Happy gaming & addon development Doc!
