G.SKILL F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR 32 GB (8 GB x 4) Trident Z RGB DDR4 3600MHz Dual Channel Memory CL16-16-16-36 1.35v

Four of these will fully populate your board. Ryzen CPUs are very sensitive to memory timings. These CL16-16-16-36 RAM chips are on the sweetspot for Ryzen CPUs and look great too with RGB that can be controlled via ASUS AuraSync.

Samsung 860 EVO 4TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E4T0B/AM)

I’ve used Samsung SSDs for years and they’ve never let me down. Both EVO and PRO series are the best choices in my opinion. I have two of these drives. One is dedicated to Flight simming (scenery generation, OrbX, plus MSFS cache) and the other contains all my important data, documents, local video files, Dropbox and OneDrive etc.

Modular, gorgeous and winner of many awards.

Noctua NF-P12 redux-1300 PWM, High Performance Cooling Fan, 4-Pin, 1300 RPM (120mm, Grey)

Noctua make some of most quiet fans available. These low RPM fans are used on the radiators of the water cooling loop – nine in total, three on each radiator. This allows them to be run in a low RPM state. You could use this anywhere in a build but 1700 RPM ones are available too if you need more airflow and don’t mind the noise.

ASUS ROG Claymore Cherry MX Red Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Available in various switches and layouts, I love the layout and feel of the Claymore. The numpad is available separately and can be detached from the keyboard when not in use and even switched from left to right side. Compact, versatile but not cheap.

ASUS ROG Gladius II Origin Wired USB Optical Ergonomic FPS Gaming Mouse featuring Aura Sync RGB, 12000 DPI Optical, 50G Acceleration, 250 IPS sensors and swappable Omron switches

Just the right size for my big hands! The original Gladius was a great mouse but this adds RGB Aura Sync on top.

Big radiators for efficient cooling. Make sure you plan where the radiators will go and get smaller ones if necessary. Also, don’t forget the fans! tubing.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16 Core AM4 CPU/Processor Retail

Also consider a 5900X to save money. You may not need as many cores as I do, depending on what you use your PC for. Make sure you have good cooling – water is best. I use a custom loop water cooler, but you could use an All In One cooler.

ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 24GB GDDR6X Gaming Graphics Card with Axial-tech fans & central static pressure fan ROG-STRIX-RTX3090-24G-GAMING

A beast of a card. If you can get one. The 3090 is overkill for most gamers so consider the 3080. The ASUS ROG Strix cards are overclocked at the factory.

SAMSUNG 980 PRO 2TB PCIe NVMe Gen4 Internal Gaming SSD M.2 (MZ-V8P2T0B/AM)

I use two of these. One for the main boot drive, apps etc. The other has all my games. Ensures maximum loading speed of most things I fire up in Windows. Samsung make the best SSDs and NVMe drives in my opinion. The PRO model is great for critical data.
