The Admiral Chester Nimitz

New AMD build after running with a Haswell i5 for almost 6 years. The Haswell build will find a new home since it's still able to run a variety of new games. The only parts I cannibalized from the Haswell build was my EVGA GTX 1070 and My SeaSonic PSU. One of the few reasons why I built a new rig is photo editing. Particularly astrophotography stacking, which requires a lot of cores. What took over 8 hours on my Haswell build (stacking over 400 images) now takes less than an hour on this new build. I call that an improvement. Overall gaming performance is better than the Haswell, but not by much. Still, I'm quite satisfied because photography takes precedence (since it makes me money).

Future goals include replacing the HDDs with SSDs, moving the boot drive over to an nvme m.2 drive, getting some cablemods, getting an extension 30pin front USB3 plug because the default case cable is too bulky and it barely fits into the USB front plug on the motherboard. I'll probably replace the 1070 with some sort of RTX card at some point and I'm trying find a solution to the front panel of the 270R. I may replace it with tempered glass, though I may also get a different case altogether to save me the trouble and move the Haswell build over to the 270R.
