You guys have been telling me for ages that I should upgrade my gaming systems to run on an AMD chipset. In fact you were even right as I have an AMD FX 8350. However, I’ve had some serious issues with the overclocking too. The reason I do it anyway is simply because it’s just so much fun.
Although I am still relatively new to the hobby, I have just completed a small run with my Ryzen 7 2700X (Kaby Lake). You’ve all helped and I would be pleased to have you all contribute with a similar run. My AMD Ryzen 7 2700X has outperformed AMD Threadripper and Nvidia Titan X.
My Ryzen 7 2700X is capable of overclocking too. The difference in power consumption between this motherboard chipset and the previous generation is the best.
You guys have been doing a great job helping those of us newbies. I think this could go above and beyond what you guys have already done. We all have a good amount of experience but I really want to give back and help people with new, fresh eyes. Just by sharing links I have been able to gain some new and very useful contacts for myself.
When asked about your game, you said you use AMD and Intel and that AMD is best for power. When I asked what the biggest benefit of your rig was, you were more specific. You just said the main features are the graphics and a high memory speed. Do you still think that? What features do you feel are most relevant to gaming?

First of all, I just wanted to thank you guys for the support you have been giving. I feel that it is the easiest way out of the frustration and that you are just so understanding. Secondly, I wanted to thank my fellow colleagues for my support. All you guys have done is make it harder for me to go to work everyday. The best, kindest, and most friendly people.
