Title: Jimmy's "I need a new rig cuz people make fun of my old one" Build
Post by: Soullessone21 on August 09, 2017, 09:25:45 AM
Buddy of mine Jimmy from the FSF has had a loaner rig for years now made from the broken dreams of all our local friend's systems.

I ended up needing my HD 290X back for an upcoming video so told him its time to upgrade.

So that's what we did.

Specs

Ryzen R5 1600x
8GB DDR4 2400 Gskill Ripjaws
MSI GTX 1070 Armor 8GB
Asus Prime X370-PRO
Coolermaster MSI Modmaster Case
Hydro Series H60

Used from old rig
OCZ 1000 Watt PSU
2TB Seagate SSHD
275GB Crucial MX300 SSD

Rig turned out not half bad and for once Jimmy has one of the nicest rigs of the whole gaming group so good on him.

Ryzen is a lot of fun and simple to build with, reminds me of building with almost all AMD as the Corsair cooler mounts to the stock AMD socket mounts.
