After forty months, I upgraded my personal desktop processor from AMD Ryzen 5 3600X to AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D. I also installed an NZXT Kraken 280, which fits snugly in an NZXT H510i as the image below shows. CPU temps get as low as around 38°C and peak at around 90°C with an ambient temperature of 23°C. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 runs at 1% CPU while my AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is the bottleneck running at 100%. I get 30FPS with Ultra settings on a 1080p.
I gain two cores but lose memory speed with the upgrade. The system should be good enough for the next round of video cards. I am only slightly satisfied with the processor and cooling system refresh.
