My physical proportions are naively trigonometrical, and therefore wrong

Nice! Glad to see you went big, $100 more for a good CPU isn't that much in the grand scheme of things especially since you have the motherboard that supports it. DCS likes fast CPUs, even more so for VR. 12C/24T will keep you a happy gamer for a good while.

...Installed the nvme last night. CLoned the OS from the original SSD it was on, and totally reinstalled DCS to the new drive as well. That alone handled a lot of my issues so far, as far as load times. 3900x JUST got swapped in. Look forward to running this stuff. I'm still waiting on 32 GB ram to arrive tomorrow.
