HEY.. that "other one" was KICKASS.. Kyle kicking MY ASS!!


Congrats to sadsteve.. am sure he hasn't been quite so sad since getting Kyle's PM!!

Heh, I was quite shocked. As far as I can remember, I've never won a drawing. This one was sweet since I've been wanting to build a Ryzen machine (or 2!) and this definitely pushed me over the threshold. I've already ordered a case from NewEgg (should be here today) so this weekend will be spent building the new machine. That's with obvious breaks for the honey do list entries.

Thank you all!!

The system went together very easily and I had no issues clocking the memory at 3200MHz. I'm dual booting Devuan Linux (Mate desktop with a 4.10 kernel) and Windows 10. Both OSes installed with no real issues. Seems to be a peppy system, but haven't really pushed it that hard yet. I haven't tried any overclocking yet, I want to get all my software installed an have a full backup before I do that.
