I use this machine mainly for daily uses and gaming. I have not gotten the opportunity to do any editing yet. There are no problems with the build except for a little gpu sag. I run this machine at idle with all of the fans turned off, and with the swiftech pump at 20%. I plan on getting custom sleeving done in the future, and another gtx 970 for sli. I can hit 4.8ghz at stock voltage, but I keep it at 4.6 ghz because I rather have my computer be silent than 5% faster.
Cpu: I wanted to make my system a bit more future proof, and it was $280 at Microcenter
Cpu Cooler: It is actually an H240-x but PCP did not have it. I liked to look, and since it has a powerful pump, I can turn off my fans during idle
Motherboard: Got it for $100 as part of a bundle. I wish I had gotten the MSI Krait instead
Memory: I wanted white memory, but I should have gotten 4x4gb to fill up the slots
SSD: It was one of the cheapest and moderate performing drives
HDD: 1tb storage. I keep it unplugged most of the time because I want my system to be silent. I can't wait for cheap 1tb ssd
Video Card: I kind of regret this decision. When I got this card for $360, NCIX had windforce r9 290's going for like $210 a piece. For only $50 more, I could have almost twice the performance. I choose the gtx 970 because it matched the color scheme better. It runs at 1530 mhz on clock.
Case: Originally wanted a 760t but this caught my eye. Only thing I don't like is the side panel being easily scratched and being smoked. I think my pc looks soo much better without the side panel on.
Power Supply: 0rpm mode is a blessing. I originally got the Antec Edge "silence defined" but it had coil whine and the fan was always on. I choose 750w because I want to sli in the future.
Monitors: Linus recommended them for surround. No vesa mount. I also actually like glossy monitors
G13: got on sale for $40
Deathadder: Planning to replace with a g502
m50x: MKBHD recommended them, but I wish I got open back headphones
z313: got them for $20 at walmart
fiio e10k: external DAC I got when I was using my laptop
