It's not as flashy as my 7700K rig, but she's running pretty smooth after updating the BIOS. It was pretty shaky before that. I can only get my RAM up to 2400 before it starts boot-looping. Hopefully they'll have a better solution for compatibility soon. Literally just finished getting software installed/updated, I'll check back with how it does in gaming and stuff.
Borrowed the GPU from my 7700K for a few days while I decide on a temporary GPU to order until Vega releases.
Here's my 7700K in case anyone was interested.

The plan was to use half of the 32gb of GSkill Trident Z RGB that is in my 7700k machine, just to save some money since RAM prices are bananas. But it seems like some folks have had theirs die in Ryzen systems, so I don't think I'm going to risk it. I guess I'm going to get some Corsair LPX 3200, like what AMD was sending with the review kits. They were sending some Geil lately with the R5 kits but I think it looks awful.
EDIT: I found some normal Trident Z I forgot I had. The heatspreader started to come off of one so I removed it. I just removed the other one for the sake of not looking ridiculous. So I'll try that before spending pointless money.

|prerunnerwannabe||Fair enough, but I think there was just a ton of hype and it was easy to build some fairly unrealistic expectations. In the end you can get an unlocked 6c/12t cpu for $219 bucks, and for me and my needs that's pretty awesome.|

|prerunnerwannabe||What are your guys' thoughts on the new Ryzen cpus? I'm thinking my next upgrade will be an r5 1600. I'll overclock it to 3.8GHz or so and it should be a really solid upgrade over my 8 year old i7-860.|

|prerunnerwannabe||I appreciate that! I have a few more crap graphics cards that I still need to work through (hd 5770, etc.) but if these videos gain any traction on the YouTubes, I will take you up on that! :)|

|sleepyboy||Make some more!! I have a 9600gt and a 9800gt+ you could do a comparison on if you want?|
