I'm looking into it.  Probably upgrading the main rig from X99 to Ryzen this winter. 

Not jumping on it straight away, I don't want to take my machine apart again after 4 months because I need to RMA the motherboard due to some chipset bug (had that happen with my first P67 board).

I won't be upgrading the old Sandy Bridge machine yet.


I really don't like those small fans that seem to be on most of the X570 boards so I'm not sure what I'll do yet.  If there is a way to disconnect them (without the BIOS spazzing out and refusing to boot the machine) and use a proper case fan with a 3D-printed duct instead, I'll probably go that route.

Already got a r5 1600 + 480 8gb. Prefect for now. 


Plan to upgrade my motorbike instead 😁

As of right now, not really. My i7 kabylake cpu and rx 480 gpu seems to run the games that I play. 

Don't call me a nerd, it makes me look slightly smarter than you
