7th gen is the last gen on their motherboard type. Gens 8 and 9 were on a different chipset.

If you're using all of your RAM and have extra slots, this could be an easy cheap upgrade. You could also make sure they are running in dual channel and not single.

Normally this would be what you would go for to upgrade, but GPUs are terribly hard to get right now.

Are you able to upload a picture of the motherboard? I want to see if it's made to ATX standard or some Acer special design.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

Project Hot Box

CPU Ryzen 7 5800x, Motherboard MSI MPG B550I Gaming Edge Wifi, RAM CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB 3200mhz (2x16), GPU AMD Raedon 6800 XT FE, Case Silverstone RVZ03B, Storage CORSAIR Force Series MP510 1920GB NVMe, CORSAIR FORCE Series MP510 960GB NVMe, PSU CORSAIR sf600, Cooling Noctua NH-L12S, Displays LG 34UC98-W 34-Inch, 32 inch curved that I can't find the model number for right now; UPerfect 7 inch LCD Aida64 Display, Keyboard Corsair K95, Mouse Corsair Nightblade, Sound AT2020+ USB Mic, Massdrop 6xx headphones, Schiit Magni, Modi Loki mini stack. 

 

Why is the 5800x so hot?

I should also note the cpu fan does make alot of noise even when nothings being done but thats random, as you can see its quiet clean so its not dust atleast i dont think, I live in Australia so everything is expensive infact i looked up one of the PCs Linus built and we dont even get those parts anyway if i can upgrade it even just abit of a boost that would be nice, specially for games like Cities Skylines which surprisingly run iffy while other games like Cyberpunk runs fantastic how odd, what do you think?
