PC Upgrade Time 2021 Part 1

What an awful time to build a PC. Just about everything is either out of stock or overpriced. I was somehow able to snag an AMD 5900x CPU and a Strix X570-F Motherboard at MSRP, so here is part one of my upgrade. I still want to get a GeForce RTX 3080, but its basically impossible right now, and these prices are stupid. So that will come later. The only new parts in this build are the CPU, CPU Cooler, Motherboard and PC Case.
