Primary use is for gaming and maybe a tad bit of video rendering on the side for a starter youtube channel. I've done a few video's, need to get a ModMic and some DT770 Pro's as my current headset is falling apart. Corsair 10/10 Build Quality!
H100i was a bit of a fiddle to get in, but got there in the end. Missed out one screw as it was impossible to get in. Stock fans did the job for a while, had to set up fan curves as they got LOUD. Added 1xAF120, 1xAF140 and 2xSP120 Quiet Edition recently. These helped A LOT!
970 Developed coil whine shortly after installation, Adaptive Sync on NVidia control panel sorted this.
Conclusion, Great PC, should last me 5-7 years without upgrading the CPU. GPU would need to be upgraded in 3-4 years time. Might add an extra 8GB of RAM in the future, just to give a bit of leeway and Windows 10 as it supports DX12. New keyboard when this one decides to give up on me, preferably a k70 (if that model is still out at the time of getting a new keyboard) my old mouse, the Roccat Kova+ lasted me 4.5 years.
