CPU & Motherboard

I chose to build the most tactful system I could, keeping everything simple - yet powerful. The choice of the Ryzen 7 1800X gives me 8C/16T of CPU performance, mixed with 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - and an insanely fast 1TB OCZ RD400 M.2 NVMe SSD, and we've got an amazing PC. All of it air cooled, too.

Housing the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor is the well equipped ASUS Crosshair XI Hero motherboard, with some slick styling at the top of the board near the Socket 1311 - just 26 more pins and we could've had 1337 pins, AMD.

The bottom of the board looks great, with a tease of that OCZ RD400 M.2 NVMe SSD at the bottom.
