    Heh, I was quite shocked. As far as I can remember, I've never won a drawing. This one was sweet since I've been wanting to build a Ryzen machine (or 2!) and this definitely pushed me over the threshold. I've already ordered a case from NewEgg (should be here today) so this weekend will be spent building the new machine. That's with obvious breaks for the honey do list entries.

    Congrats Steve. I agree with the above. You'll have to change your user name if only for a day.

    Thank you all!!

    The system went together very easily and I had no issues clocking the memory at 3200MHz. I'm dual booting Devuan Linux (Mate desktop with a 4.10 kernel) and Windows 10. Both OSes installed with no real issues. Seems to be a peppy system, but haven't really pushed it that hard yet. I haven't tried any overclocking yet, I want to get all my software installed an have a full backup before I do that.
