Greetings team members!
The last time I had an AMD powered rig was about 2010 with an ASUS ROG laptop running something like HD5XXX? graphics. The past several years, I've been looking to build a new rig and I wound up doing so back in January. Now some might call me nuts, but last week, I replaced my i7 6700k with a Ryzen 1700X. I've wanted to go back to AMD for a good while now, but just never pulled the trigger until now. I plan to either sell or make a second rig w/ my other processor, but for now, here is BLACKice. Next change pending the release of RX Vega.
This is an ongoing project, so i'll post any changes as they happen!

I LOVE the CF touch on this! Looking good Not sure who would call you nuts for switching to the 1700X. I have absolutely no regrets - especially with more optimizations coming over time! What would be nuts is choosing a 6700k over a 1700X - not because it's an Intel product, but because it makes so much more sense capacity wise.
What do you use this system for mainly?
What are your favorites? ps, if you haven't already checkout our twitch stream on twitch.tv/amd. Every now and then the hosts hold community nights etc and we get to jump in on the fun.
I've mainly been playing [Redacted Due To NDA] and having a great time with it!
I also play Paragon, Overwatch, Quake Champions and whatever old steam purchases I decide to dust off every now and then.
I think we're in the same Redacted per NDA!
I love RTS', and certain MMOs like SWTOR; non/tactical shooters (Argo, Arma) and most Tom Clancy games like R6 Siege, Wildlands. For group fun I love Quake, PUBG and a whole list of games sitting to be installed still. This current Steam sale doesn't help narrow it down as my moods change all the time and I have to try everything at least once.
It is fire-team sized yes. There's never anyone available for it except a dev here and there though - let's just say it's a mashup of different things in one game.
Man, the aesthetics on this build are amazing. Since I have an opaque side panel, I think I'll just leave that in place and pretend my system looks like this on the inside.
