Building for photo editing using Adobe CC. There will be a bit of gaming as well. Naturally.
The build with these parts was quick and easy. I got it up and running, although I am waiting for some more bits. I'll be adding three more sticks of ram for a total of 32gb. I'll add a Cooler Master Seidon or Corsair H55 before I do any overclocking. A few blue and red case fans and it'll be done.
The CPU cutout on on the SPEC-01 is large, but not large enough for this motherboard. It looks like I'll have to remove the MB to replace the cpu cooler. Bummer.
I have to disconnect and remove the disk drive to access the intake fans in the front. Also a bummer.
The side panel with the window is amazing! The panel for cable management... let's just say there is not a lot of room and leave it at that.
Everything is fairly low wattage, so the 450w ps is plenty.
Thanks to PCPARTPICKER and the generous and informative community that uses it for help with this build. It would have been a nightmare without you.
I'll post photos soon...
