Edit 03/11/2019 * I switched out the front intake fans to the Corsair White Special Edition LL120 fans. These fans provide much more airflow and cooling than the original black LL120 models. Weird. Also I went with the SE Platinum AIO Cooler with keeps CPU temps around 4-5C cooler and is an upgrade overall aesthetically.
UserBenchmark Posted at bottom. Specifically built for the Adobe Creative Cloud, with emphasis on Premier Pro and After Effects. 2nd build and I absolutely love the Crystal 280X. It has fantastic airflow, and a minimalist footprint.
The new MSI Z390 MPG Gaming Edge AC is an all-around great motherboard with easy overclocking abilities, and a plethora of connections. Love that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities. Highly recommend.
i7-9700k with the 8 cores for great and buttery smooth 4K editing. Currently overclocked to 5.0ghz without a hitch. Went to 5.2ghz, but no need for the extra heat and voltage. In typical Adobe PP 4K rendering, maximum temps on all cores average 72 degrees C.
EVGA GTX 1080 FTW for the 2400+ CUDA Cores that Adobe loves so well, and scored it for $400 bucks barely used and in great shape. Corsair RGB Items DDR4-3000 RAM 4x8GB in XMP Mode runs flawlessly. h100i PRO runs whisper quiet at a balanced 2070RPM and keeps the i7 at cool 32C. Corsair LL120 RGBs, run very quiet and provide ample airflow as expected. One a negative note, it is very frustrating how iCue software, while quite user friendly, will not play nice with other RGB software, such as Mystic Light or EVGA LED Sync.
2 TB Seagate for video storage, and a spanned volume of the two SSD’s for easy access to intermediate file and video storage.
480GB MP300 Force by Corsair is a champ, incredible quick loads of Win 10.
