I'm Back !!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My old computer gave up the ghost in mid -March ( Covid -19 ???) so after a suitable time for grieving, and working out the finances,

I now have a new rig set up and apparently working OK.

All I have to do now is to set up my Sims and take to the skies again.

Great to be back on the Forum.

Cheers to all.

Hi All, Thanks for the encouragement - I have not built a new computer since 2013 and how things have changed !

My old system was based on an ITX motherboard in a Bitfenix Prodigy case, so I decided to give my old hands ( & Brain ) a bit more room to work in.

However, I did like the horizontal m/board and so I went for a Thermaltake Core V21 case this time.

The rest of my specs are :-

Motherboard   MSI B450 Mortar Max

CPU                   AMD Ryzen 5 1600AF

RAM                  16Gb G Skill Flare-X 3200

Cooling             Noctua NH-U12S *

Graphics           MSI NVidia GTX 1060 6Gb *

Storage             Samsung 870 EVO Plus 500Gb NvMe

                           Samsung 860 QVO 2 Tb SSD *

                           Samsung 850 EVO 1 Tb SSD

                           W/Digital Velociraptor 1 Tb HDD (10,000 rpm) *

NB: Items with * were from my old setup and I replaced the stock front fan on the V21 case with a Noctua NF-A20 ( 200mm PWM Fan for improved air flow capacity ).

I know that I am taking a chance on the CPU at AUD185, but if it does not perform with X-Plane I have the opportunity to upgrade to a 3600.

Also, I was on a limited budget from my Supervisor:rollmyeyes:

Cheers, Bill.
