Carbo Loading LVI

December is for funny tasting drinks at Starbucks and wearing more layers of bike clothing that should ever be allowed.

...Lucky Yesterday was still short sleeve weather after a cold morning start. My first outdoor ride in a week and was good to be out.

Nope, and it's "rebuild the PC" season too... I'd rather take my time and get exactly what I want I guess.

Gen 4? Whachoo talking about willis?

Got a Ryzen 9 3900X as the CPU, a fancy-pants ASROCK Mobo, 32 GB of ram and apparently... SSDs are no longer SATA, so I got an 1 TB M2 SSD for the OS and programs and a 6 TB spinny drive for pics and data. I'll recycle the GPU and random other parts. Should arrive tomorrow night and I'll probably get into it Sunday. Can't wait! Lightroom has been dog slow ever since I got a 20 mpix camera(s)

Right, my GPU is Gen 3 though, not sure I'll see any benefit but it SHOULD help the SSD. I didn't even think about going RAID on the SSD, is that something you can do after the fact?
