    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    I have a Samsung 860 EVO SATA M.2 drive and it's fast, but will be faster on a motherboard with a slot for it. The Spectre flaw goes all the way back to the I think the first gen i7, and Intel was supposed to have released a micro code update for cpu's that have the flaw starting with I7 4770, and guess what ASUS was smart never to take that code and put out a new bios update for my board. Even with the Spectre patch to the OS, I still don't have any performance problems.
    I'm starting to look at giving AMD a try once again. Tried AMD back in the 90's, but that wasn't such a great system.

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    well been a few days and lovin' my AMD system smokin' fast once I ironed out some memory timings . running my memory from my old board DDR4 2400.

    something that blew Me away and I wish I could upload a pick as I took one of the 2600+
    Did You know that My 2600+ was " made in China " !
    I kid You not , I had to do a double take to make sure .

    I did try some Linux , manjaro and mint ran like a raped ape on the MSI Procarbon 470x Mobo good board kinda weird bios in as its hard to find anything

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    Well I'm different when it comes to Windows 10. I got rid of the junk advertisements, and stuff that I didn't need, but kept everything else intact. I just need to figure out how to make shortcuts of my Steam Games from either their directories and get the games working that way, or shortcuts from the steam app themselves and get them working on the Windows 10 start menu. I figured it out once, but forgot since then, and haven't been able to figure out since that time.
