[I donít intend to hijack this thread, so we should split it off if necessary.]

Is it possible to get a small box that will take a top-end AMD Ryzen CPU ? Something like an ultra high powered Raspberry Pi, with just some very fast RAM and an SSD in it?

I suspect that this is self-contradictory nonsense.  ???  [A bit like the fool who wrote a letter to us when I worked at Psion complaining that our handheld 8-bit ĎOrganiserí computer was no good because it didnít fit in his pocket and also it needed a built-in printer that could print on A4 paper.]

PI's you cant interchange CPU's plus they use different cpu architecture.  So no.

Smallest device you may get a ryzen in is maybe a NUC, never seen one been sold anywhere though.  I use an Intel NCU for my firewall with a m.sata SSD.

@Weaver, have you thought about Mini-ITX?

I built a couple of Mini-ITX chassis as Myth TV frontends, about 10 years ago, grew to like it - good choice of cases sufficiently compact to blend in with the furniture under the TV, and easy to choose bits that are energy efficient, hence less need for noisy fans.

This is the site I used as reference and inspiration for my own Mini-ITX builds, as well as source of most of the bits.   I know nothing about Ryzens, my build were ION boards, popular at the time.   But if you click on ĎBoard Finderí it does seem to suggest that Ryzen boards exist.  You might be a bit restricted in choice of cases, but some seem to be available...

https://www.mini-itx.com/

My only regret was building one that had an internal PSU.   When the PSU eventually failed I was unable to source a replacement as the PSU turned out to be non-standard dimensions, I donít think Mini-ITX actually specifies a PSU form factor.  I was able to repair it, but would have preferred to replace it.

Redditís PC building groups are surprisingly friendly and aggro-free. 

Browsing through the Small Form Factor PC (https://www.reddit.com/r/sffpc/) and Build A PC (https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc) pages might be of some use!
