Generally I use this for graphic arts, 3D modelling and rendering, genealogy, a small amount of gaming.
Although I've been involved with PC's since the late seventies and up dated all kinds of parts, components, and software this is the very first one I've built from scratch. Most likely it will be the last also. I'm retiring in two months so this will have to last a long time.
Everything worked fine after I got the bugs out of the build. Had some trouble with no boot, but that was entirely my fault. Had, and still have, troubles with over heating. As you can see below, I used the H100 by Corsair. This should be able to handle the CPU, according to what I've read and been told, but so far under a heavy load when rendering a complex scene the temps go to high. Not sure what I've done wrong, but I'll continue to try and sort it out.
I paid about $2100 back between Thanksgiving and Christmas for the parts so that's a bit less than the current going price.
