AMD's new 7000 Series CPUs just launched (you can check out a full breakdown over here!), and with the AMD Ryzen 9 5790X absolutely blowing away our benchmarks, we decided that felt like a good reason to put together a build guide with all the bleeding-edge tech we can find for the biggest and best gaming rig out there.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is the newest flagship processor from AMD and is the lynchpin for our entire build. The 7000 series features a ton of firsts, such as the worlds-first 5nm processor, and the new AM5 socket enables DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support for the first time on AMD systems! And be sure to grab an AIO to keep it running cool, like the MSI MEG CORELIQUID S360 360mm Water Cooling Kit
It's also fast. Don't believe us? We've got the data to prove it.
Obviously, if we're building with AM5, we want to build on a DDR5-supported motherboard. The ASUS X670E ROG CROSSHAIR Hero does that and more, with WiFi 6E support, PCIe 5.0 ready slots, and USB 3.2 GEN 2X2 connections. It also comes with gorgeous Polymo lighting and a PCIe 5.0 M.2 Card so, so you're ready for speed the moment you open the box.
If you're building with AMD's top-of-the-line processor, you also want AMD's top-of-the-line GPU for maximum performance boost with AMD's Smart Access Technology, increasing speeds and maximizing efficiency. Plus, the Radeon RX 6950 XT is just a really good GPU that will keep you gaming at the highest level for years to come.
If you build a 7000 Series computer without DDR5 RAM, you're leaving a ton of power on the floor. Corsair's VENGENCE DDR5-5600 is gonna make sure you get the most out of your new build, and with a 2 x 16GB setup, you have room to expand if you find you need even more power. Plus, it looks really sleek with a nice matte black finish and some RGB on top.
Is 8TB of SSD space a lot of space? Absolutely. Is it too much space? We don't believe there is such a thing. With a 4TB M.2 drive for your boot and important files (or games!) and an extra 4TB of SSD storage, you should be good for at least a few Warzone updates!
We will never stop beating the fully modular drum. Keep your PC nice and clean without a ton of extra cables, get better cable management in general, and maximize your airflow with a fully modular PSU. At a 1000 watts, the Corsair RM1000x will absolutely handle everything you put in your PC and then some, so you can upgrade in the future!
Lian Li is an incredible case manufacturer, with cases that offer tons of airflow and fantastic designs. The O11 Dynamic XL is a big case, but one that has a lot of room for upgrades and airflow. It's also got just a hint of RGB, so you won't be bathing your entire room in bright, rainbow light while you game.

A nice build, indeed
this cpu is super power hungry i heard so youll need close to the best of the best cooling
Is there a reason to choose a SATA SSD as the 2nd SSD? I thought the motherboard would have multiple NVMe M.2 slots but I may be wrong.
Can't wait to see the gaming benchmarks with these new processors and how they behave over time!
