this was my first ever ground up build, ive rebuilt and upgraded others but this would be my first.
what do i use the machine for? -i will be using it to stream, play games, and do some photoshop and maybe a little 3D modeling.
What worked well? Problems? -ran pretty smooth till i forgot to give the cpu its power supply after that i could not fix the fan hub for the case till i remembered a step that i completely read over. Recommend taking your time, i felt like i knew what i was doing so i flew through it just missing those couple of steps, still finishing under 3 hours.
have not stress tested but did fan speed test to see how loud....not bad.
