Ryzen 9 Beast!

Build Description

A Ryzen 9 32-thread gaming beast! This thing can tackle anything I throw at it. I don't know if all the liquid cooling is worth the maintenance over a sealed kit, but it looks amazing! I use a USB Blu-ray drive to rip my movies for my Plex server and this thing only takes a few hours to encode a Blu-ray movie. My old Intel 5820K 12-thread system took nearly 8 hours to encode in super HQ!

Favorite Feature

The chassis makes it easy to hide wires. I hate seeing cables running through my build!
