Description

This is my first build on a budget. Please note i will be mainly using this build for music production. also Netflix and some light gaming. I had to cut some corners, but eventually will be adding a better CPU cooler, GPU, and Sound card. also will be adding an SSD. Had allot of fun with the build and thanks to those of you on here you guided me on the way.

Nice build but probably should have went with a APU so you can get a mini ITX board/case. 6 cores will be just sitting and waiting when you're watching movies.

In the description it says "i will be mainly using this build for music production. also Netflix and some light gaming."

6 cores is not required for music production, nor is it for netflix or light gaming. An APU would fit much better for his purposes, and would offer a much better price for the HTPC without much of a sacrifice in performance for his chosen programs. And he bought super fast RAM for a good price!

True, but for $218 with CPU+GPU an 7850k would have very similar performance with games, It could even be better.

Probably spent a bit more on the case than you should have, but w/e, nice build!

I agree man...watched that case for 3 months before i bought it, never changed price. Happy with it tho. Build well and still some room for upgrades.

Pros and cons about rosewill 80mm fan

not many cons, they can be a little bright at night. i have them mounted in the back of my case so its not a huge issue. they are quiet, but not the quietest under load. Pros are they are well made and i have had zero issues with durability going on two years of continuous use. i would definitely recommend them! Hope this helps.
