No Man's Sky Beyond has hooked me. Really enjoying just walking around planets, digging holes in the ground.

Good choice. You won't be disappointed. That seems to be one of the "least bitched about" X570 boards, LOL. Some people have had issues, but mine's been good.

You try No Man's Sky yet? I did, and it may have been a serious mistake if I cared about having a life. It's hooked me harder than Fallout 3 or 4, and that's a scary thing to me. HOOKED!

Mental note: do not touch this update. If they're going to start forcing that GayFarce Experiment crap on me, I'm not touching it.

Because they make cheap garbage. Low quality, high price. The only things they ever made that were any good were just re-branded gear made by other companies (eg Seasonic PSUs).

Link leads to a pic sir, FYI. Everyone should try this game BTW, it is *excellent*, and I'm picky. It's developed by a small Swedish team, and it has serious personality. HIGHLY recommend this...

Don't tempt me! My 240 rad has a reservoir hanging off it that doesn't *quite* stick out enough in the windowed area of my case, and adding a second set of fans would fix that quite nicely! :D

Gigabyte has impressed the HECK out of me with this board. They implemented a silent mode for the chipset fan, but I found out it was NOT the chipset fan that was bugging me. Apparently one of my...

Asus is starting to slip, which is an awkward thing for a fanboy of 20+ years to say, but it's true. Gigabyte has been doing better than them on the X570 front, in the BIOS even (scary). They're...

Sweet! Are you polishing it up to a high mirror shine? Or will this build be a bit less flashy?
