Even before the release of Zen3 processors, AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPUs was having the medal of being the best processors for 2020. Again with this new generation of processors, AMD has bought users some of the best value processors, which offers excellent gaming performance and outperformance their competitors in heavy workload tasks or multi-tasking, and that’s what users make to consider them. 

The great thing about these processors is they come at the same price as their predecessors, and most amazingly, AMD has fulfilled their promise of getting them to work with other chipset motherboards. So unlike the Intel CPUs, which need a new chipset motherboard with every new generation, you can even use the old B450 or X470 chipset boards, but they are not recommended.

We don’t recommend getting some old chipset boards because they cost about the same as new B550 entry-level options. While B550 and X570 motherboards offer PCIe Gen4 slots that are only available in them, Intel motherboards still lack them. They are expensive chipset boards, so they offer a better cooling solution for VRMs and excellent overclocking performance.

The CPU that I would recommend you for the best RX 6800 build is AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, one of the best mid-range CPUs in Zen3 architecture. This CPU has eight cores and sixteen threads that are enough for today’s use; however, those who want something more can get the Ryzen 9 5900X or 5950X. There is a myth that AMD CPUs don’t perform well with Nvidia GPUs; there is a slight performance difference that you will have as an advantage.

When it comes to overclocking this processor, you will have an advantage over the Intel users as it can be OC with some cheap B550 motherboard, and you even don’t need an expensive cooler. The performance of this processor is somewhere similar to the Intel Core i9 10900K when you overclock it, but still, that CPU has a remarkable performance difference when you play with that.

The base clock of this CPU is 3.8 GHz which can be easily overclocked to 4.7 GHz with any decent priced aftermarket cooler. AMD claims that they’ve redesigned the core design of their new generation of processors, and now each core has better access to the cache memory, and them gives better performance than before. Long story short, it’s the best CPU for RX 6800 in 2021, while there are a couple of other options too for you.

ASUS ROG Strix B550-F

MOTHERBOARD ASUS ROG Strix B550-F
CHIPSET B550
MEMORY SUPPORT 128 GB, 4x Slots
EXPANSION SLOTS 5x
SATA SLOTS 6x 6GBPS
REAR IO PANEL 2x 3.2 Gen2, 4x 3.2 Gen1, 2x USB 2.0
M.2 SLOTS 2x

B550 motherboards are comparatively better than X570 because they got more number of ports and features the better overclocking potential to the latest processors. Another reason to consider these motherboards is their low price as x570 chipset boards are expensive, especially the premium models while you can get some good mid-range B series board under 150-300 USD. For this builds, we’ve picked the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F which is a cost-effective alternative of Rog Strix B550-E with the same set of features. The core features of this motherboard are two M.2 slots from which the top one runs at PCIe Gen4 interface while the bottom one at Gen3. This board has everything including the two PCIe x16 slots, PCIe x1 slots, USB 3.2 Gen2 ports including both Type-A and Type-C and decent power delivery. The Intel 2.5G NIC and Wi-Fi 6 motherboard makes it much more premium as all of them are also available in B550-E, which is the premium board. There is an all back colored PCB that gives this subtle motherboard looks and has integrated IO cover with ASUS ROG logo printed on it. Also, there are grey colored lines printed on this board diagonally. At this price range, this is one of the best motherboard for Ryzen 7 5800X to consider in 2021.

Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB

MANUFACTURER Corsair
MODEL Vengeance RGB Pro
CAPACITY 32 GB
FREQUENCY 3200 MHz
RATING C16

Most of the time, it’s a bit hard to get both performance and aesthetics at the same place because the components that give fantastic looks mostly provide a second or third-tier performance. .The Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro is the best memory module we can consider for this build as it allows for best in class performance, supports significant overclocking and has premium looks. There are XMP setting profiles available for this module which gives a decent rating and of course excellent performance. There are RGB lights on this memory which are covered with white light diffusers and produces different effects. The lights on it are controllable through the Corsair software, or you can use any third-party software from ASUS, MSI or Gigabyte. The kit is very reasonably priced, but these modules don’t reach the DDR4 4000 rating. Also, which light diffusers on this module produces pastel color effects which seems terrible. Overall for its price, this is one of the best memory kits we can get for this build.

Corsair iCUE H115i RGB Pro XT

MANUFACTURER Corsair
MODEL iCUE H115i RGB Pro XT
FANS 2x
RGB Yes

The iCUE H115i RGB XT is built while considering both high performance and low noise operation while usually, CPU coolers lack. As the name suggests, this cooler comes with RGB lights, but you need to know that it doesn’t have RGB fans, but the CPU block contains some RGB lights; however, the company reduced the manufacturing cost compromising too much on the overall looks. This cooler gives the competitors a hard time beating it in performance for the same price, and that’s the only reason I’ve picked up it for this build. The installation of this cooler is also straightforward, and you can fit it over any Intel or AMD processor socket; however, it’s not compatible with TR4 and similar workstation sockets. It’s compatible with Corsair iCUE software, which allows you to produce different RGB effects, and you can make them match the lights of your build. Overall it’s a great piece of product for this price, but it would be much better if it comes with RGB fans on the radiator. I’ve also noticed that the fan noise level was going a bit high when running the processor under high load. With Ryzen 9 5900X, this cooler will work flawlessly and allows you to overclock your processor at its full potential.

SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus SSD 2TB

MANUFACTURER SAMSUNG
MODEL 970 EVO Plus
CAPACITY 2TB
READ/WRITE SPEED 3500/3300 MB/s

There was a time when solid-state drives are not very popular in the market, but these days, these drives have become a necessary component for every gaming build. In this gaming build, we will not use old HDDs because of the rotating parts and high loading time; instead, we will invest that money in the NVMe drive. There are a couple of options available, but I would recommend you to get the Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB drive. This SSD has everything, including reliable performance, excellent efficiency, and a low MSRP. The black-colored PCB of these drives matches most of the motherboards' color scheme and doesn’t affect the aesthetics of the build much. Overall it’s a great NVMe we can consider both our operating system and a few games.

Cooler Master MasterCase H500 ARGB

MODEL Cooler Master MasterCase H500 ARGB
Size Mid Tower
EXPANSION SLOTS 7x
BAY DRIVES SPACE 4x
I/O PANEL 2x USB 3.2 Gen, 2x USB 2.0, 1x ARGB Controller, 1x ARGB Splitter

While buying a computer case, you might’ve seen users going cheap because this is a computer system component that doesn’t affect the frame rates. Also, we’ve seen users considering the case upon their aesthetics while ignoring the other factors. We need to consider these things too, but they are not the only thing we need to consider while buying the best gaming case for modern builds. Firstly we’ve to look at the airflow in the case then the looks, and I’ve picked something that has both of them and its Cooler Master MasterCase H500. This case is designed while taking care of thermal performance and aesthetics during its operation on a minimal noise level. An RGB controller can use to produce different RGB effects with it, and the lightning, in this case, doesn’t need the motherboard’s support. The two 200mm fans on the front panel intake the air and cool down the components inside it. Price-wise this case is a bit expensive, but still, we managed it to get it for this build under the price mentioned. This casing requires two USB 3.0 headers on the motherboard or at least a single 20-pins splitter cable to run all four ports on the front panel.

Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 650W 80+ Gold

MODEL Toughpower GF1 650W 80+ Gold
POWER 650W
RATING 80+ Gold
TYPE Full Modular

Undoubtedly it’s one of the excellent power supply units you can get for this kind of build, but due to the US tariffs, this PSU price is disturbed, and it’s not well available in the US market. The reliable quality of this supply and the ten years of international warranty makes it more appealing to consider. Simultaneously, running at full load, the temperature of this PSU never exceeds 47-50 Degree Celcius. The fully modular supply allows you to do better cable management and not compromise on your build’s aesthetics. There is a Hydraulic bearing fan at the bottom of this PSU, which makes it cool down even under high loads. Overall it’s a great PSU that we can consider for this build; however, it would be much better if you manage to get in some deal.
