Re: AMD Confirms: Zen is a 2017 product

Thank you chuckula. That was a very insightful AMD post. It just keeps looking worse every week, which is what I started expecting about two years ago.

Nice clean setup, although I'm still making up my mind about the curly Q telephone SATA cables 8) What model of VelociRaptor do you have, and what's your boot drive? I have two H80i's that are now two years old each, and no reliability issues so far.
