Blue Dragon

The Ryzen build was nice to build. It was son's and father project. It started couple years ago as FX-6350 build. Then cheaply got a Thermaltake core P5 case and started water cooling a rig. At first CPU, then added waterblock to sapphire R9 280 (I think) dual X. When Ryzen came out went for it, but at first thought to build 7700k rig. Only problem we had was ......... Yes, you are right, Thermaltake riser cable. Spent all day, while figured it out. So Ezdiy cable (not mentioned in part list) purchased. So far no problems. Also the Sapphire r9, been replaced by gtx 1070, and that with EVGA gtx 1080 SC. Reason for such choice was to re use gtx 1070 water block. Last upgrade, exchanged GPU to EVGA 1080 TI FTW3 gaming (new EK RGB waterblock) and added some 90°fittings
