I have yet to find anything other than those that will make the game look right.

I was able to look up some info and my NVIDIA control panel setup was not configured properly. After a couple minutes of tweaking that, fixing a common issue with CoD WZ VRAM setups, I was able to play at 1440 Ultra settings with no problems at all. Still a bit weird how loot boxes and drops look, but overall the game runs absolutely beautiful. Now onto learn how to use MSI Afterburner.

@spcmafia the only thing I use afterburner is to my fan curves higher than stock, and for the info overlay in game.
It's nice to know how much fps, gpu temps are while in game.
Besides that I just leave it alone, is it worth it just to tweak to get 5-10 fps more for one game then brick on the next game? Maybe to a few.

There's always YouTube guides on afterburner. But it too technical for dork like me. I just get the jest of it.

If you want an easy "overclock", just set a aggressive fan curve and slide the Power and Temp limit completely to the right.
The card will boost higher all within nVidia's safe zone.
The card will try to boost until it hits a limit (power, temp or voltage limit)

Any reason why I can't rebind my UP and DOWN keys in the following games?
Hades, Little Nightmares II, Monument, Blasphemous.

Repainted the front and rear panels to add a nice contrast! Not my best paint job, but I also haven't painted in a very long time.


Along with the paint job, I upgraded my motherboard to the Asus ROG X570-I. To help mitigate the PCH fan from going bonkers over the NVME SSD heat, I added a couple tiny Noctua NF-A4x10 fans. Put them right next to the SSD slot to reduce the heat and it seems to be working! They are quiet enough to leave them at 50-65% without much noise. Especially since the PCH fan was stupid loud and buzzing along at 8k RPM. I got this idea from Optimum Tech and figured, at $13 a pop, it might be worth a try.

Now that I'm done with my build, the official 'mod' list is below:
Phanteks Evolv Shift 2
AMD Ryzen 9 5900x
Asus ROG Strix X570-I Gaming
BeQuiet! Pure Loop 120mm AIO
HyperX Predator RGB 16GB DDR4-3200 OC to the full 3200
MSI Gaming X Trio RTX 3070
Samsung 980 Pro 500GB NVME M.2
Samsung 970 Evo 1TB NVME M.2
Crucial MX500 500 GB 2.5 SSD
Corsair ML140 x2 fans
Corsair SF 750 PSU

This may be old news, but first time I've seen it. Sony is planning to bring several Playstation exclusives to the PC starting with Days Gone By.

Same with God Of War and Kingdom Hearts (Epic Store). On the other hand, Xbox is rumored to keep Bethesda games for themselves (Elder Scrolls).

Not sure where you heard that.
It looks like Bethesda games won't be Xbox exclusives — but they might come to PlayStation late

As it should be with an in-house development group.

Especially how Bethesda was independant before the acquisition. MS would have been stupid and shunned alot of gamers if they made them exclusively xbox. Timed exclusive or best on their own platform is the best case scenario to keep everyone happy, as long as they dont actually intentionally cripple the games for other platforms.

It was mentioned at least once, can't really back it up with an article because I remember reading about it soon after Microsoft acquired Bethesda. Will Xbox have some of an edge over the tittles to an extent? Yes, like release times and content. I also find it hard to imagine that Bethesda will give the finger to P.S players and release the new E.S exclusively for Xbox.
