The primary purpose of this build is for motion design and 3D animation work... I'm hoping that this will last me at least a few years. I have no real complaints about the parts I installed. However, the H500M has 3 back panels designed to hide your cables for the tempered glass panel. I ended up not even reinstalling them because the clearance back there is slim as is. After some testing, I am able to push the 3950x to 4.2ghz and keep it stable on all 16 cores.

I really like the aesthetic of this build. I hope you like it!

Very nice CPU. Perfect for what I need it to do.

CPU Cooler

This cooler was surprisingly very simple to install compared to some Cooler Master AIOs that I've used in the past. Thermal performance is exactly what I was expecting. I would buy this again.


I love the size of this case. It has plenty of room to do whatever you want. There are lots of ways to rearrange it and customize for your needs. My one gripe with it is the back panel. With it being tempered glass, they have panels that are there to hide your cables. For me, it was tough enough getting the glass on with all of my wires. I had to discard these panels and just install the glass. I am also not using the supplied RGB controller. It requires SATA power and am using a Lighting Node Pro anyways. Not needed.

Excellent fans. Quiet and nice to look at.

Nice build! Any issues with the 4 sticks of ram? Can it run at rated speeds?

Thanks! No RAM issues! I have actually tightened up the timings a bit more than stock. Running at 3600mhz!
