Red Team – Build, Play, and Contests!


Hey, everyone!

Have you ever just wanted to chit-chat about AMD CPUs, AMD GPUs, PC building and gaming? If so, we have a place for you! Jump into the  Red Team Community where you’ll meet an incredible group of passionate PC builders and gamers who are ready to share their experiences with you.

Outside of our usual gaming or building discussions – as well as a variety of off-topic conversations ranging from online chess to Formula 1 (looking at you, @Sam_AMD) – we run monthly contests and sweepstakes which involve prizes varying from AMD CPUs and GPUs to a variety of other components provided by some of our awesome partners like MSI, iBUYPOWER, Alienware, Corsair, Origin PC, and ASUS!

Additionally, if you’re interested in a chance to win some awesome goodies, check out our Rig of the Month Contest and Red Team Monthly Sweeps on how to enter! Spoiler, for the Monthly Sweeps in September, we’re partnering with iBUYPOWER to give away this awesome red Y60 Case.

I don't remember ever seeing so many contests and prizes awarded on other sites.  This is the place to game and support your community.  That's why I enjoy being here.

That should be the correct link @tesityr.  

I think they did some discord server updates a few months ago but that is the current link.

What level do i have to be to be able to get into the Rig Of The Month Contest?

The Rig of the Month contest isn't running right now.  I wish they would bring it back though.  I keep asking about it.

Sharing my build. My CPU is now having BSOD issues. RMA in progress. Anyway, I was hoping to do some photo/video editing, 3D and gaming. I love the speed when the system did not BSOD. I hope to upgrade to a 7900XT or XTX later hence the more powerful PSU.

Gigabyte X670 GAMING X AX V2 (1.0)
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X
Sapphire RX 6800 XT (I won this in The Riftbreaker game competition organized by Exor Studios)
Kingston KF560C36BBEK2-64 kit
4 x WD_BLACK SN850X NVMe™ SSD (RAIDed) - Yields 14K M/T. Who needs Gen 5.
FSP Hydro G Pro 1000W
Antec Perfromance 1 FT
Artic Liquid Freezer II 360
Artic P12 Max 120mm fan replaced for exhaust.

You are definitely setup for new GPU. Good choice on PSU. I feel like 1000w is almost standard now, especially with new gen parts.

Just for some info.  The rx6800xt you have is super stable and something like 5 percent slower then the 7800xt. And less then 25 percent slower then the 7900.  Honestly, I’d keep running that 6800.  you’ll gain a few new tricks with the 7000 series but not as much frame rate as you would think.  I own the rx6800xt and I truly love that card more then my 7800xt and 7900xt.  For one it’s cooler is huge and it can keep it cool really well “xfx brand”. It’s  so much more stable then the 7000 series.  Call me crazy… lol!!

Yes... But for now I guess I won't upgrade yet because I live in Penang (where the Malaysian AMD chips are packaged). The weather here is very hot. I can feel the heat rising from my case even with Tjmax at 85 and -20mv under volt. I need to give the AIO time to dispel the smell.

Can you send me a free RDNA4 card? My wife is cheap and I can't upgrade without landing in the gulag. 


We can "say" I won a contest. Deal?

Lmao… me too.. but any card I’ll be happy with. Even a xtx. Hehe..!

Have you tried turning your fans inwards on the aio?  It cools much better because it sucks cooler air in instead of using the warm air to cool a warm rad.  Just some old school know-how been doing it a long time.  All my aio are pulling fresh air in thru the rad when I build except small itx builds.  It does help a lot about a 10-12c difference.
