I made the mistake of not doing enough research on my ongoing pc build.

Wanting to be frugal I chose a Ryzen 2600x instead of the 3600, thinking that overclocked it would perform just as well. I didn't understand what a difference the architecture has on performance until I was looking at charts comparing various cpu and gpu combinations. 🤦

I'm happy to have gotten a 4ghz OC on the 2600x with the stock cooler. My gtx 1060 is really showing its age trying to keep up.

With a beefy air cooler, I'm still getting 4ghz but it never heats above 60C 😸 3600 is in the mail...
