Hi all thank you for taking the time to check out my Build Log.
Firstly ill explain a little about Myself and Reasoning for wanting/needing a higher end System.
So my Name is Gareth I live in the here in the UK I have a huge passion for all things PC Tech Related from System Building-System Optimization-Fault finding-System/Component Benchmarking to Both Picture and Video editing. And this is what has lead me to need a higher end System. Over the past year My passion for Video Editing grew considerable.
I had hit a brick wall performance wise with the last Pc I owned as I now wanted to Review Hardware Capture Gameplay even live stream. I knew if I wanted to carry on progressing my new found Talents I had to upgrade. I got to this point about a year ago at witch point I first Caught on to the news of RYZEN.
So as you can imagine I knew that was the direction I was going to go.
What I decided to do in the mean time is Fully Benchmark my current System Show what it was able to rather than its limits with I thought maybe novel really as many other Reviews/YouTubers tend to show the limit of said hardware instead of Game/application they may perform well in.
To do that and for fill my later plans to I knew I had to get to grips with a few things i.e. Video/Picture editing. So I did that I also showed off The Crimson ReLive Rec software and how that affects performance in said Games of software's.
While doing this I made sure to keep track on all the news Coming out RYZEN Related, At this point id like to give a few YouTubers a shout out for the coverage of RYZEN over the past months and Reviews when Released. Firstly I would like to give a Thanks to (Tiny Tom Logan over @ OC3DTV)His Reviews the lengths he goes to absolutely cover every single item you could possible want. Makes him a real inspiration in all honesty, Also his advice concerning my Build was most valuable.
Secondly (Jim over @ AdoredTV) The same goes really the detail in witch he covers is immense and a real inspiration also, His no nonsense approach. I would also like to thank (JayzTwoCents and pauls Hardware) for there coverage of RYZEN also.
Now to the good stuff Details of the Build I will list all the parts I have selected and reasoning for doing so.

MOTHERBOARD}...MSI Xpower Gaming Titanium AMD X370
MEMORY}...............Team Group Vulcan T-Force 16GB DDR4 3000MHz
STORAGE}.............2X Hyper X Savage 240GB ...... 1X WD BLACK 2TB HDD

So as of right now these are the parts I will be going for I currently have The CPU on my Desk right next to me I Preordered it threw Overclockers UK.
I also have the storage I need to get the WD Black in this week I have the / GPU in house now / Memory is on its way directly from Team Group I emailed them a few months Back with the idea for my build and was told to contact them again nearer the time witch I did. They arrive Thursday. I will be Ordering The PSU And Fans WD Black with the idea of possible Completing the Build by the end of this month. The motherboard I have got to wait until the end of this month just Due to cost more than anything.
