Built this PC a long time ago for someone, it has been through a lot. Decided to show the road leading up to, like everyone else upgrading from the FX series trying to find a better path while sticking with AMD.
*I wish that I had more images and the ones that I took. There was cable management but that can easily get messed up with the age. xD

Any news on completion of your ryzen rig mate? i know with RAM prices being unbelievably horrid just now as well as all GPU's being the same its annoying just wondering that was all.
Looking forward to seeing it.
Nice clean build build, love the cable management! I cannot believe people are building rigs right now with the way prices are at the moment with ram and GPUs being so high. Would love to see benchmarks soon.
It is crazy! I don't even know if I want to post the GPU price I just bought xD
I will indeed be posting a few benchmarks but probably just synthetic ones.
Have you got to test it out yet? Was wondering what you thought of the XFX RX 580 and which specific one you got. There three variations that I know of, but would like to hear what you think of the one you have. I'm really considering this model if I don't go Vega 56. Thanks
