Not FXing Around (Ryzen Build)

Description

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

gettinther​ Thanks, can't wait to get the old pc in my possession so I can build it.

Re: Not FXing Around (Ryzen Build)

You can turn the Coolermaster sideways and get better airflow in a Push/Pull setup like I did with my old build.

You are right and that is how it was originally oriented, don't know why it was how it was during that time in the image.

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.
