A collection of all the new parts going into the build (thank you Black Friday sales). Other than the EVGA GTX 960 and Crucial MX500, it's completely new.
Everything is installed. Clearly the hardware theme is black.
Cable management with the Evolv X is fantastic. I'm sure I could clean thin up even more, but it'll all be hidden behind panels anyway.
Here we are, up and running. RGB theme for the moment is red, in honour of once again joining Team AMD!
A better look at the CM Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition. Keeping things cool and quiet.
The full Battlestation!
Return to Team Red (Ryzen 2700X)
After 7 years with my old i7-2600K, the time to upgrade finally arrived. AMD Ryzen was the obvious decision, as I do creative work (video editing and graphics) in addition to gaming. The build went well (except for initially messing up the CPU install), and she's running cool, quiet, and stable. I couldn't be happier!
