Custom PC issue 210 cover

In Issue #210 we show you how to build a killer gaming PC with all the latest tech for just £1,396, with a fantastic spec that includes a liquid-cooled AMD Zen 3 CPU, a super-fast 1TB PCI-E 4 SSD and a GeForce RTX 3070 GPU.

We show you how to select the right balance of components and where to prioritise your budget, before taking you through the step-by-step process of building the machine, flashing your motherboard’s BIOS and overclocking both the CPU and GPU.

With stock of six-core and eight-core Zen 3 CPUs now stabilising, and more Nvidia Ampere GPUs promised on the way, now is a great time to gear up for a new PC that can play the latest games with all the eye candy enabled.
