User reddita AlanGeisse recently completed a review of its building skills in an unusual way. He decided to recreate a gaming PC equipped with high-performance hardware in Minecraft. In total, it took the gamer about 45 hours to recreate the machine with the RTX 3070 and water cooling.
According to the builder, due to construction height restrictions in Minecraft, the scale of his virtual computer was 2 millimeters per block. It ran into some problems due to the scaling, but in the end it turned out to be a very convincing version of a gaming PC.
The gamer explained in an interview with PCGamer that during the construction he used real images of the components, taking measurements and determining the position of the components, taking as a basis a typical ATX AM4 motherboard.
Initially, the gamer thought of equipping the virtual PC with an RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 graphics card, looking for analogs from AMD, but ultimately settled on the RTX 3070, since it fits better into the Thermaltake V200 TG case. By the way, if you are thinking about upgrading a video card, be sure to consider its size and free space in the case.
As a result, the builder got a car with the following specs:
- Case: Thermaltake V200 TG Edition
- CPU: Ryzen 5 5600X
- Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B550-A Gaming
- RAM: GSkill TridentZ NEO 3600MHz 32GB
- Video card: Asus Dual RTX 3070
- Storage: SSD Gammix S11 Pro, HDD WD Blue 2TB
- Power supply: Asus ROG Strix 850 White
Despite the fact that the work took the gamer 45 hours, he is proud of his creation, giving good advice to all fans of building in Minecraft: the main thing is to finish it. “A half-finished job costs nothing, but a good job can serve many.”
