I forgot about even writing that... If I remember right, there are something like 26 endings, of which I found five or six. At that point the difficulty ramped up, and there were still some...

What model did you get? I've been building out my home gym and have had a Concept2 on my radar for a while. With biking season coming to a close soon, I think it's about time.

Good advice. I've only ever had problems with either forgetting to plug in the CPU fan and having the GPU seated properly. The GPU was a lot easier to find & fix out of the case.

Great thing about getting a PC is you can load up Google Earth and go to France from your office. Or get a game like Assassin's Creed and visit Notre Dame before it burned.

On the cpu, it's been a few years since I've built/researched, but felt like ryzen gave better value at the time.
