I am a former computer technician and interested in building systems. I am a huge AMD fan and while Intel has the absolute gaming advantage right now Ryzen 3 is barking on it's 14nm+++ door. Right now my main system Tantalus is powered by a Ryzen 7 1700 @ 3.6GHz stable all core OC with 32GB of memory running at 2933MHz. It is also equipped with a MSI Titanium GTX 1070 Ti. This is my main gaming and podcast editing rig ('s Technobabble podcast).

My auxiliary system ZPM (Zero Point Module) is powered by an Core i3 8350k @ 4.75GHz stable all core OC (sadly I lost the silicon lottery on this one as with the memory overclocked it will not do a stable 5GHz) with 16GB of memory running at 3200MHz. It is also equipped with one of my launch day RX 480 8GB video cards. This system is used for Linux distro experimentation, skype and sound effect management for my podcasts and all around tom-foolery.

Currently playing World of Warcraft retail and classic, World of Warships, Pinball Arcade, Forza Horizon 4 and American Truck Simulator among other things.
