    Well, you did a fine job...never fear...;) It's interesting that I finally get a look at you...I think you must be at least ten years younger than me...although, I am not asking that we compare ages...! It's just the mental image I had was for some reason much different...Ha-ha--You look more "professional" than I had imagined--but I always guess wrong about people's appearances, so just understand that actually seeing you has if anything raised my opinion of your already fine site!

    Very nice to see the kit! It's too bad that some retailer somewhere doesn't put together similar kits and sell them--the wooden box is a classy touch...although I usually don't think about extraneous things of that nature! Thanks for the informative look!

    My purchase of Ryzen depends on Your review. Can't wait...... I've got pre-order offer from few retailers, but i waited this......
    Good luck AMD (i never bought intel cpu in my life, only 386 sx33 in 1992. but my dad bought me this one,hhh)

    You 'd better leave that EK Predator aside until it has been tested for leakage

    Thanks Hilbert, since you are just doing the unboxing now, my guess is that the NDA on reviews is lifted on the 2nd of March?

    Great vid, great presentation! Looking forward to the results. And I'll bet the Crosshair VI will be first Ryzen board to be reviewed as well.

    Nice beard, wish mine looked as tidy.

    Even though I've had my 6700k for a while, I may get buyers remorse after these reviews are released. Not that my CPU is bad, but I do get the feeling that I should have held onto my 3570k a little longer.

    Thanks Hilbert. Nice unboxing video! Cannt wait for the benchmark. I am currently on 4970K and thinking about jumping to 1800K for more cores/threads (probably wait a bit also for 1080 ti or VEGA as well) and it all depends on your upcoming review!

    Congrats Mr Hilbert,you have pretty hard times now to bench a new CPU with a glass of a good wine,like a Boss. :)

    Now,will be good to see Ryzen vs i7 Skylake-Kaby Lake-Broadwell-Haswell in real benches.
    I'm really curios whats inside of that Ihs...how look the Ryzen chip.

    Good luck and have fun. :coffee2:

    And here's me picturing you looking more like your avatar. You sounded a bit like Chef though. Well done on the video.

    Thanks for the TechPorn HH!

    Dude, I still have my i5 2500k and works perfectly fine, have no idea why you or anyone else upgrade, seriously.

    Great video, Hilbert. Thanks for that. Hope to see you in more videos in the future. :)

    Not everyone got WC in their kit. Most have just the Noctua. It appears that the MB brand is random. I'm interested in that Asus, so that's a bonus for me.

    I think that CPU was tested before shipping. Other press kit unboxing videos also show the Noctua mounts on the MB and a used CPU. Makes sense that they tested the hardware in advance. The press wouldn't be happy if the HW wouldn't work.

    A nice video. You say you are uncomfortable making videos, but this was better than many youtubers make while being very comfortable in front of a camera. I reckon your inhibitions help you create a more serious and factual atmosphere, fitting for a site like Guru3D.

    Good luck with the review. It's going to be a lot work, man!

    Great vid Hilbert. Super jealous of the free stuff the press gets!

    Looking forward to the bench results. Hilbert can I request you do an Arma 3 bench? I'd love to see this game run with Ryzen.

    I may sell off my cpu/board/ram and buy Ryzen but it all depends on these results.
