Shadowmoon has Ryzen

Recently my AMD FX black cpu wasn't cutting it for Plex and other home LAN services. I was finally able to 'upgrade'. The best part is the fact that the liquid cooler from the FX series bolts right up to a AM4 chipset. I researched this build for approximately 1 month in advance.
After a hour of fidd'lin around I was able to dial in my overclock to maximize the memory speed. For some reason when I build a pc, 7/10 times, a monitor ends up on the floor 'test bench'.
Room temperatures are noticibly lower considering not much was swapped (cpu,mobo,ram).
I'm extremely grateful to be able to continue learning through personal experience. Financially and physically.
Okay, so I couldn't just let this 8 core cpu and motherboard just sit on the shelf. I, for the most part, finished assembling the box. I was able to use the Ryzen AM4 stock cooler from the Ryzen 5 on the FX8. I am going to use this as my 'web dev' env server and VM playground host. Named 'Bolt' by my son.
