From the few benchmarks i saw Ryzen was behind Intel in some games, by quite a few fps. But i could be wrong, cause i see many people using Ryzen recently.

Also, the benchmarks on the drives look very good.

I really like the case u are using, i wanted to buy one a while ago, but it went out of production. And i went with a Thermaltake X31, which is roughly the same dimensions, but it's kinda meh in quality. I wish i could find one used, in good condition relatively near to me.

You can really do some nice watercooling in it if you wanted, but maybe it's not your thing. I followed your first build too, but...silly..can't remember if you did watercooling then. I'm guessing no though.

Good luck...i'll be following.

Honestly this thing hasn't been to bad to game on, I'll do gaming benchmarks in a bit but using my settings I only lose 5 - 10 FPS which is really nothing and wont matter to much once I upgrade to 1440P.

Yeah drives are good but one hasn't been great...

I did do watercooling in my first one but I cant be bothered this time round and I'm glad I didn't right now, I'll be going EK MLC coolers once there released in Q3 (hopefully).
