I Went Team Red; A Ryzen Gen 3 Story

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is my second official PC build and I love it! I've learned quite a bit since my novice days back in 2015, and with Lian LI's O11 Dynamic Razor edition case readily available and AMD knocking it out of the park with their Gen 3 series CPUs, everything just came together perfectly. SSDs are not included in the build parts list since I just transferred them from my old build and updated drivers for the new hardware. I create/analyze energy models for my engineering job and am also a huge PC gamer so it's nice to have a rig that can kick butt at both.😄

Previous build; i5-6600K and a 980Ti (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/WFvV3C).

Very cool! I'm actually looking at upgrading my i5 6600k to some type of Ryzen 3rd Gen CPU. Probably not a 3950x, but most likely a 3700x.
