My Setup

Setup (as of 8th May, 2023) [+rants]

This is mainly used for when I report issues/bugs somewhere, so the developers know what I use. Moreover, this is for everyone who wants to know what hardware I can absolutely recommend (🌟) and can't recommend (🚫).

Strikethrough = not used as main component anymore

🌟 Favourite | πŸ‘ Recommendation | 🚫 Not recommended | πŸ’€ Broken or sold


Bought Nov 5, 2022 (1408€/1418€ with shipping)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, 6C/12T, 3.70-4.60GHz πŸ‘ (Gets up to 70Β°C sometimes when overclocked, but otherwise great for gaming. Maybe not the best for recording/streaming and video editing, but a good allrounder. I'm thinking of upgrading to a Ryzen 9 5900X or similar.)

CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim 2 (Ugly color but works and it's kinda quiet, too.)

Motherboard: GIGABYTE B550 Gaming X πŸ‘ (nice design, but I need more USB ports :/, BIOS is alright)

RAM: 2x 2x Corsair Vengeance RGB 8GB, DDR4-3200 = 32GB / 4 RAM sticks (I couldn't find the actual RAM so the link points to a 16GB version!) 🌟 (Just wanted to say that the 32GB were a waste of money, and I should have gotten 16GB instead, but then I opened the Task Manager and realized that I was using 15.4GB...)

GPU: XFX Speedster QICK 319 Radeon RX 6750 XT Ultra Gaming, 12GB GDDR6 πŸ‘ (Can get up to 90Β°C on max settings, but with good optimization rarely goes above 60-80Β°. It's a bit loud, though. I get coil whine on it with my 600W be quiet for FPS over 120 on max settings and FPS over 200-300 on normal settings. The performance is great, except for if you turn RTX-related stuff on :/. For UWQHD (3440x1400), it also runs perfectly smooth (150 FPS) on games such as Apex Legends, even at higher settings. I think Fortnite is poorly optimized for AMD GPUs, because I get huge framedrops when in the starting island and when landing, even on FHD.)

M.2 SSD: MSI Spatium M390 1TB, M.2 πŸ‘ (A bit slow and I should've bought 2TB lmao.)

Case: be quiet! Pure Base 500DX black (πŸ‘ Simplistic and straightforward. That's how I like it. The side-window is easy to open, too.)

Power Supply: be quiet! Pure Power 11 600W ATX 2.4 (πŸ‘ It's quiet and that's the most important thing for me)

Fans: 2x Arctic P12 PWM PST A-RGB 0dB black 120mm 🚫 (Don't get mislead by the "0dB" marketing! They're 35.8dBA @ 1800RPM loud, which is pretty annoying in my opinion!)

OS: Windows 10 🚫 (I'd consider GNU+Linux to be generally the better choice for me but it is too unstable for me, and a lack of support for some programs I use is also a huge issue for me.)


Audio & Video


Microphone: SilentiumPC SM900 🌟 (Good quality, not perfect, but great value.)

Speaker: JBL Charge 2 (I'm not into speakers, but I feel like it's overpriced, and you should probably buy newer products. The speaker is still absolutely fine, though. Bass is great, never had problems with Bluetooth, ...)


  • Sharkoon Skiller SGH30 πŸŒŸπŸ’€
  • AKG K72 🚫
  • Razer Kraken V3 X (Honstely, I'm unsure if I'd recommend it. The headset is absolutely great aside from the fact that you cant turn off let alone change the RGB effect by pressing a button on the headest, which is quite frustrating when using it in dark environments. But the worst is the software - you have to create an account, download, install, activate the software, which - of course - starts with the operating system, and - of course - needs an internet connection for switching the device. By the way, the installer also comes bundled with Razer App Engine, and why don't you also install [random Razer bloatware]? But that's not all - what about paying $29.90 for simple features such as an equalizer and calibration, as well as spatial sound? Razer, your hardware is great, but your software makes me question my choice of buying your product in the first place.)

Drone: DJI Mini SE Fly More Combo πŸ‘ (Quality is great, but I'd invest in a drone with more obstacle sensors next time. Still the best drone in this price range by far.)

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 πŸ‘ (Got a used one for about 350€. Works great, but the battery goes empty quite quickly. The photo quality is impressive, but I found it really complicated to set up when I first got it. Even today, I still use the iA mode mostly.)



Mousepad: Peakness RGB 800x300 (Warning: Amazon Link) 🚫 (Poor quality. I mean, it's okay for what you par for it, but not worthy of a clear recommendation from me.)


  • Sharkoon Skiller SGK4 (Recommened if you want the cheapest keyboard for gaming, but you get what you pay for.)
  • Sharkoon Skiller Mech SGK3, Kailh BROWN πŸ‘ (Really good overall, but the switches are far from perfect for gaming and programming sadly. I prefer more compact designs, but the build quality of this keyboard is really solid.)

Controller: Sony DualShock 4 2.0 Controller wireless πŸ‘ (I still use my controller sometimes, the only thing I'd complain about is the weird look sensitivity, otherwise really handy.)


CPU: AMD Epyc 7282, 16C/32T, 2.80-3.20GHz πŸ‘


SSD: 100GB

Location: Nuremberg (NΓΌrnberg), Bavaria (Bayern), Germany

OS: Debian GNU/Linux πŸ‘ (Really stable, but apt can get on my nerves sometimes :/)

Uptime: 99.9%


  • PS4 (standard edition), 500GB
