The goal of this build was having a console killer. I think that I achieve that in spades.

Let me answer all the obvious questions first.

• No the RTX 2070 Super is not bottle necked by the Ryzen 5 3600 • Yes it does 4K at reasonable settings • My thermals are great • No you can't come over.

This PC is being more used as a game console rather than an HTPC. Not to say it couldn't. I was pleasantly surprised on how much Windows 10 was ready for Dolby Atmos with for a small price of $9.99. When it comes to competitive games this is not the build. See my Wakanda build for that :). The refresh rate is limited at 60fps and that is because of the TV. But for single player games this is the one.

I keep the Ryzen 5 at stock speeds and turned off SMT to reduce thermals and to be honest for gaming it works better.

The RTX 2070 Super is a great all around graphics card and I could not be happier.

Overall I am happy with this build and I would suggest it for anyone.

The Onkyo receiver is a beast. It is also PC friendly as it is recognized by the OS as a sound card basically via HDMI. The Sony Speakers were on sale and they crank.

Would there be any thermal difference using a 2070 Super TURBO vs the open air card in such a small case?

I guess.
