I've been meaning to build a new system for a while and just so happen to come upon a great deal for a 5930K. Was debating on Skylake or Haswell-E, but seeing that i7 Skylakes and the 5820K were out of stock, it made the decision much easier to go LGA 2011-V3 and with the 5930K. Kept my Noctua NH-D14 around for cooling purposes, and it keeps things at a good level when I went to OC it to 4.7GHz [around 80C at the hottest core], but day-to-day will see it run at 4GHz. Paired it with 32GB [4x8GB] Kingston HyperX Fury 2400 RAM so apps can use all the ram they could ever hunger for.
Was debating on re-using my Antec P182, but it's served me well for 9 years and I felt it was time to put it to pasture as my work rig. I went with a Fractal Design R5 when it went on sale, $75 for that case was too hard to pass up on. It's super spacious, has great routing for cables, and is pretty quiet. When the fan profiles are set to silent, I can't hear it over my RAID box on my desk or the ambient noises in my studio. One huge convenience was having USB 3.0 on the case itself, as my old case was made long before the spec was anywhere near a thought in anyone's mind.
More on the cable routing, I really enjoyed how deep the cutouts are on the backside; this allowed thick cables to pass along the channel without having the door panel bulging out and applying a lot of pressure atop of the cables. If you look at the photos, there's almost no extraneous cabling poking out, allowing a clean look, which was aided by the modular PSU. Aside from having to utilize all three SATA power cables to power the HDDs in the bottom cage, a Bluray drive, and a SSD behind the mobo, I can't ask for much more.
Needed fast storage as that was my bottleneck for Lightroom and Photoshop, so I went with the Samsung 950 Pro for my scratch disk while utilizing an older 240GB Seagate 600 SSD I had in my old PC for the OS. 2 HDDs for storage, 5TB and 6TB Toshibas, which are quick and hopefully as reliable as the older 3TB Toshibas I had over years of use.
I don't game much, so I stuck with my previous GPU, a PNY GTX 770. As such, I felt it was fine to stick to my Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550w PSU, but was swayed with an EVGA 650w P2 when it went on sale. Knowing the larger CPU draw would put strain on the 12V rail, I did it for ease of mind to go up, even if my system never really threatened to get close to 550w at load from the mild factory GPU OC and conservative day-to-day CPU OC of 4GHz.
Also leaving the PSU in ECO mode means that the fans only spin up if the unit ever gets hot, which takes a lot to do. I haven't decided if I will leave it on ECO mode or let the fans continuously run to keep it cool.
In the future, I'll be looking into aRGB capable monitors and will have to upgrade my GPU to a workstation grade card to utilize the expanded color gamut offered by some monitors and moving to 4K, which will prove extra pricey. Another 32GB of RAM when the kits are under $100 and I'll be doing some RAMdisk experimentation in the future.
