PROJECT AMD

This is a batch of 100 systems with identical components aside from color.

AMD Approached us to build 100 systems for their Canadian system pool. These are used for lan events, giveaways, and internal use at AMD.

First build using an H115i PRO was a prototype and a proof of concept. We ended up reducing the cost of the systems and increasing the reliability of them by using AMD's Wraith MAX coolers (This was early 1st gen ryzen days).

All in all it was an incredible experience, I was so lucky to work closely with AMD's team to produce these and and show them off at the CNE Gaming Garage event. A truly once in a lifetime experience, something I will always remember as a turning point in our company's history.

I've built thousands of machines in my day (currently 24 years old), and just standing there in Toronto where literally 100 people where all in the same room using the machines I had slaved over for months was just indescribable!

I had no fingerprints after finishing this massive batch of systems, but it was worth it!
