This build is specifically for my small Home Studio. It's only my second ever build (The first being well over ten years ago), and it's probably something a hard core gamer would turn their nose up at, but for me, it's without question, and without exaggeration, THEE fastest, best performing computer I've ever had.
I designed it based on systems sold by Sweetwater Music, and using partpicker to put it all together. It took me a while to get piece by piece, and I had a little hiccup when the first Motherboard arrived DOA. I also screwed up, and didn't install standoffs, when the new Motherboard arrived.
Now that it's all together, I absolutely love it, and I'm REALLY excited about it. I know it's going to sound goofy, but one of the things I'm most impressed my is how quiet it is. The case is an iStarUSA D-400 Rack Mount chassis, and came with an iStar 120mm fan, and 80mm fan. I installed the three Noctuas, and it was SO quiet, I had to peek inside to make sure they were running.
I'm obviously new to this so I'll fill in the details section, and add pictures soon.
I haven't done any testing yet, but it's in my iStarUSA D-400 Rack Mount Chassis along with two NF-A8s, and they're all DEAD quiet. Like to the extent that I had to open up the case, and see for myself that they were running.
