Alder Lake 2021 Build

Alder Lake was able to tempt me into making a new PC. Sadly I wasn't able to get ddr5 because of scalpers and such. I was able to get a 3080 after over a year in the EVGA queue. Did some light overclocking to push past 18k on Time Spy so the PC flies. I was lazy as far as getting the PC to look nice. Unfortunately the Cable Mods pack only came with 2 pci-e 8 pin cables so I had to use one of the standard cables from the PSU so it doesn't look as pretty as it could have. I put it together in the middle of the night while me wee lad was asleep so I was under a time crunch. The old PC gets to be his to play Minecraft and Slay the Spire on so he's super excited now as he doesn't have to wait for his parents to get off the PC.
