The wait is over. Ryzen is here! I for one am truly blessed and stoked to get such an amazing package from AMD. When I got notified that I would be receiving one of the press kits for the new Ryzen CPUs, I felt like a dream became reality. Some of the AMD Red Team Plus members got their kits before others. They got the Ryzen 7 1800x chip with the MSI Titanium Motherboard. The rest of us got the Ryzen 7 1700x with a Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 Motherboard.
All of us got the awesome wooden box that holds all the goodness.
Also in the shipping box was a Noctua CPU cooler which was a nice addition.
Upon opening it, I was revealed a nice presentation.
Below the cardboard covering was the motherboard and RAM.
I was quite in awe looking over the product. The motherboard has so many features on it that I have never had. Now I began to plan what I wanted to do with all of this. I for one know I needed a new case because I currently own a Fractal Design ARC 2 Mini that only holds an mATX board. Then on the other hand, I only have 1 PC and would like a second PC in the house. The kids are growing up and might be using one sooner rather than later. Or I can utilize it as a server of some sort. No clue yet but I want to build fresh. More details to unfold as I receive parts in.
