This is my first build. I need a PC that met my needs and design specifications. I did not like the off-the-shelf builds. I spent a great deal of time choosing the components especially the PC case. I like the Fractal Design because it is quiet and made of quality components for a great price. I use the machine for video and media streaming and some modeling work. The i7 CPU and 16 GB of memory were plenty for video encoding.The build went smoothly with few problems. The only major problem was that I did not seat the fan properly on the CPU. I checked cpu temps and they were increasing, so I took it apart, cleaned the cpu with some isopropyl alcohol and reseated it and there are no further problems. I did performance testing of the CPU and the graphics card with 3D Mark 11. I tested the CPU with PRIME95. Overall, I really like the system
