Today i did some prep work on the motherboard and also cloned the SSD from the old rig. I will eventually use the old rig in a different case. So having a ready to go W10pro SSD to work with that is just cool.
The mounting kit (AM3) i ordered from Corsair in the UK, has the right rings, but the bolts are tapped wrong. Bolts and nuts don't match, idiots. This means i can not use the Aio for the dry test. I will send them a mail tomorrow, avoiding too much colorful vocabulary right now
So instead i will most likely go for the full water build instantly, or mount an air cooler for the time being.
I have no room to move my case to, so it will be a vertical build. Fortunately the doors come off very easy on both sides and this case has plenty of room to move around.
The M2 SSD is so tiny. They look much bigger on pics. But they really are as big as 3 SD memory cards.
Pics later, when the SSD is ready with clone business
The new rig will get a fresh W10pro install, as RyZen is a different architecture. Best to do a new install anyway with a new build.
