UPDATED 31/12/2022

What are the components for the Ultimate Gaming PC Build 2023

Are you looking for the Rolls Royce spec’d Gaming Computer?  Do you want to have your graphics level set to Ultra? If so, you probably know that several critical components plays a part in that let’s break it down:

Ultimate Gaming CPU


Every Rolls-Royce Gaming Computer needs an impeccable engine, therefore we will need a reliable, extreme performance, best spec’d CPU in the market. Since we’re allowed to dream here and budget is no concern, below you can find the king of the hill in CPU’s for 2023

Intel Core i9-13900KS

“Intel Core i9-13900KS Becomes The First CPU To Achieve 9 GHz Frequency World Record” ASUS sets new World Record, pushes Intel Core i9-13900K to 9.008 GHz with ROG Maximus Z790 Apex. Setting the new high in its battle with AMD, Intel comes on top awaiting the release of AMD’s upcoming processors line in 2023.

Why Core i9-13900KS? TL;DR Version:

  1. The Intel Core i9-13900KS is a desktop processor with 24 cores that is expected to launch in 2023.
  2. It uses the Raptor Lake architecture with Socket 1700 and has 36MB of L3 cache.
  3. The processor has a default clock speed of 3.2 GHz and can boost up to 6 GHz depending on the workload.
  4. It is being produced using a 10 nm production node, but the transistor count is unknown.
  5. The Core i9-13900KS has an unlocked multiplier, which makes it easy to overclock.
  6. It has a TDP of 150 W and requires good cooling.
  7. It supports DDR4 and DDR5 memory with a dual-channel interface, as well as ECC memory.
  8. It uses a PCI-Express Gen 5 connection for communication with other system components.
  9. It has an integrated UHD Graphics 770 solution.
  10. It supports hardware virtualization and IOMMU virtualization, as well as AVX and AVX2 but not AVX-512.

Liquid Nitrogen cooled Intel Core i9-13900KS reach’s 9 Ghz Speed
  1. It has the same configuration as the existing Core i9-13900K, with 24 cores and 32 threads, but with improved clock speeds of up to 6 GHz.
  2. Early benchmarks show that the Core i9-13900KS may not be significantly faster than the Core i9-13900K.
  3. The Core i9-13900KS outperforms the Core i9-12900KS and Core i9-12900K by 11.4% and 16.6% in single-core performance, and by 40.4% and 54.5% in multi-core performance.
  4. Intel is aiming to reclaim the title of the fastest gaming processor with the Core i9-13900KS, but it may face competition from AMD’s rumored Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache chips in 2023.

Expected price will be in the range of $550-$600 USD.

Ultimate Gaming Motherboard


Every Solid Super luxury car needs a reliable, sturdy, and well built chassis. That is why the motherboard is second on our list of most critical components to consider with different CPU architecture in the market it is imperative you look for the most compatible and reliable boards.

ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex

ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex, 100% compatible with our choice of CPU. the best part, its not in the top10 most expensive motherboards! yet we have rated it as our preferred chassis for our Gaming Rolls-Royce. Having contributed to the overclocking world record alongside our recommended CPU, we thought its best to pair them, below are some of the features of this monster of a motherboard:

Why the Z790 APEX? TL;DR Version:

  1. Intel LGA 1700 socket: Ready for 12th&13th Gen Intel Core processors and Windows 11, support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5
  2. Intelligent Control: ASUS-exclusive tools including AI Overclocking, AI Cooling, AI Networking and Two-Way AI Noise-Cancelation for easy configuration
  3. Robust Power Solution: 24+0 teamed power stages rated for 105 A, ProCool II power connectors, Micro Fine alloy chokes and premium metallic capacitors
  4. Optimized Thermal Design: Enlarged VRM heatsinks plus integrated aluminium I/O cover, high-conductivity thermal pad, dual M.2 heatsinks with embedded backplates and ROG Water-Cooling Zone
  5. High Performance Networking: Onboard Wi-Fi 6E, Intel 2.5Gb Ethernet, and ASUS LAN Guard.
  6. Fastest Gaming Connectivity: PCIe 5.0, 5x M.2, PCIe 5.0 Hyper M.2 card with Gen 5 M.2 support, USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 front-panel connector with Quick Charge 4+ Support
  7. Industry Leading Audio: ROG Supreme ALC4080 codec with Savitech SV3H712 amplifier for high-fidelity audio

Ultimate Gaming DDR5 RAM


Every Super car needs some reliable, robust and efficient wheels. Those wheels needs to be able to provide the right traction, grip on the right corners and system integrity on those high-speed straights in our imaginary race! Thus we have opt-ed for the newly released DDR5 Rams

G.Skill Trident Z5

The G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB Series is a high-performance memory kit designed specifically for use with Intel Z690 and newer CPUs. This 64GB kit includes two 32GB modules and operates at DDR5-6000 with a CAS Latency of CL32 (32-38-38-96) at a voltage of 1.40V. It is a non-ECC kit, intended for use in dual channel configurations and suitable for both high performance and gaming applications. The XMP 3.0 profile support allows the memory to reach its rated overclock speed, or it can run at the default JEDEC profile speed. The rated XMP frequency and stability will depend on the capabilities of the motherboard and CPU. This is why we chose the perfect pairing of the i9 and Asus Motherboard.

Why DDR5? TL;DR Version:

  1. DDR5 is a new memory standard that promises higher levels of bandwidth for processors with multiple cores.
  2. DDR5 supports denser memory chips, with the capability to use up to 64-gigabit chips and potentially reach 2TB per module in servers with LRDIMMs.
  3. DDR5 data rates range from DDR5-3200 to DDR5-6400, but mainstream DDR5 products are expected to start at DDR5-4800.
  4. DDR5 has the same number of pins as DDR4, but the pinouts are different and the notch position has been changed to prevent incorrect insertion.
  5. DDR5 has two independent 32-bit channels and a burst length of 16 bytes, improving efficiency and reducing data access latency.
  6. DDR5 operates at a lower voltage of 1.1V, but is expected to increase in voltage for higher performance.
  7. DDR5 introduces a power management IC on the memory modules, rather than relying on the motherboard for voltage regulation.
  8. DDR5 has improved error correction capabilities and adds a data bus inversion feature to reduce signal noise.
  9. DDR5 is expected to be more expensive than DDR4 due to the additional features and higher performance.
  10. It is unclear at this time how DDR5 will compare to DDR4 in terms of overall performance and whether it will fully replace DDR4 in the market.

This Monstrous paid comes with RGB! What an invention. the RGB I mean.

We have chosen the 32×2 64 GB kit, because it is the maximum our chosen motherboard will support and because at this stage we do not want to risk blowing our car up with an overkill.
