    Just took a slight step down with a ryzen 3700X instead of a 3800X as I had before.
    Still very happy. Sad to see my Taichi board go which was faulty.

    You'll be surprised how those slots come in handy as your PC ages, especially if you get just 1TB drives, and do keep in mind extra PCI-E slots can be used with an add in card for a m.2 SSD.

    Whenever I buy/build a new system I will probably be rich or something as I don't see me ever having that money.
    One thing I know is that I am going to try to have as many of them as possible. Not just for the superior speeds, but also for the reduced clutter as you don't need two cables per drive (more or less).
    Having said that you need to have the right amount of CPU lanes support etc.
    But as I will be right, that won't be a problem.

    No idea how AMD work on this.

    Some of you might remember I tried to order an SSD to replace my SATA SSD where I have my video editing software installed.
    After weeks and weeks I cancelled that order.
    Less than a week ago I decided to order the same drive (1TB) from another store, this time closer to my place. They told me I would have it in 10-14 days, but it is possible for up to a month.
    Yet I got it in just under a week.
    I call that awesome!

    It's the same model as the one I bought last year (that was 2TB) and I was very happy with it. I use that for my C drive. I was originally pissed off with it because the support for Windows 8.1 was bad, it even made me install Windows 10. I wasn't planning on getting another from the same company, but the performance, apparent quality and price were just too good.

    Now I just need to install it and clone the previous drive on this one.

    ADATA XPG GAMMIX S11 PRO 1TB

    AMD have been the only ones supporting PCI-E 4.0 16x for the longest time. Their support on the lanes is pretty good.

    Of course now Intel has caught up with PCI-E 5.0 8x which is actually equivalent to PCI-E 4.0 16x.

    That was not what I was talking about, not exactly anyway.
