Reply To: Goodbye Ryzen 3, Hello Ryzen 5?

Built the Ryzen 5’s today. Still amazes me how fast they are with an NVMe. It’s currently copying from 2 x USB drives, one of which is USB3, to the spinner and installing Office 2019 on the SSD. Not breaking sweat.

My PSU has been a bit flaky since the new build and graphics card, so I put the spinner in a USB2 caddy while I waited to get a new PSU. With a few small exceptions (running VMs for example), I’ve barely noticed the difference.
