    Default Ryzen-5 1500X System

    I needed an HTPC for the living room and decided to use an old i7-870 Lynnfield CPU and Board that I had on the shelf.
    It worked, but it was slow as molasses. There were no malfunctions other than the i7-870 was hopelessly outclassed by today's computing demands.
    I couldn't stand it.

    I looked around a little and found an ASUS ROG Strix B350-F Gaming motherboard for 70 bucks. I bought it and set it aside.
    I already had some DDR4-2400MHz. RAM on hand, so I put that aside as well.

    I started looking through my parts bins and I found a Gold rated Bitfenix Fury 560W PSU. Also, I found a 250GB Crucial M.2 drive for it.
    I added a Corsair Carbide 400C that was in one of my sheds outside. It had four 140mm and one 120mm fan already in it.

    All I needed was a CPU and GPU and I could build.
    Newegg had one of their little flash sales and I got a Ryzen Quad Core R5-1500X for 180 bucks shipped. It comes with a CPU cooler too.

    I had a GTX-1080FE on the shelf that I could use, but it is intended for my upcoming i9-7900X build. For now, I'm using it here.

    I put it all together last night and it's pretty snappy.
