    im finally building my first pc this Sunday! ive always been inspired by your videos james and i can't thank you enough for expanding my pc knowledge. wish me luck! hopefully i don't mess anything up

    "Top end gaming performance right now" and you continue to show a CINEBENCH benchmark? How clueless are you? Cinebench is an indicator for office/video editing performance, not for gaming where the Ryzen 7 5800x3d should be on top of the list. That is not a mistake that a tech channel with 165k subs should make.

    This video was very helpful and entertaining. I am building my first pc and I went with the Intel core i5-12600k and a ROG strix Z690-A motherboard.

    Looking to buy a ddr5 one with wifi. Between the asus rog strix b760-f wifi or the asus tuf gaming h770-pro wifi. Unfortunately the Tuf gaming one for ddr5 doesnt exist in b760. What is the difference here? Because asus markets the h770 between the b760 and z790…

    Great video!

    can the z790 aorus master fit in the nzxt h9 without moving the cable bar?

  6. BigBoy

    When the 13900ks and the rtx 4090 ti and Rog Maximus z709 extreme glacial all come out can you please build a pc with all of them

  7. They didnt miss the six thousand series, i have the Ryzen 7 6800h, the 6 thousand series is only for a laptop.

    5700G w Asus TUF B450 pro II is a beast combo

    You can overclock non-x AMD cpus, they usually fall a bit short of their x counterparts

    I’m looking to get a all white build it would be dope if that could be list like this

  12. EvanEvolved

    The MSI Z790 Carbon wifi board works like a dream with my 13900K.

  13. Brandon Kramer

    This is the video I needed thank you I’m literally looking at an i5 and wanted to know what to run with it 🙏

  14. Azeem Usmanov

    you can install the 13th gen on z690 and b660 motherboards as well, as long as they support the bios update of your motherboard

  15. Nakir Mahamud

    if I use Rx 7900 xtx with i7 13700k will I get the same benefit using R7 7700x ?

  16. prisly87
