I use this machine to run Adobe Creative Suite applications. My goal was to build a machine that could handle some large Photoshop files and render 4k video for approximately $2000. It runs very fast! I enjoy the quick boot up and application launch speed that the M.2 drive provides. I had a few problems with the build. Newegg and Asrock support are very patient and helpful. It turned out the first GPU I tried was not compatible with my system. It was a Gigabyte GTX Geforce 175ti with 4 gb. I was hoping to save some money on the GPU but I wound up having to spend an extra $70 and get the GTX 960 that you see on this list, which is great because it really is quiet. The other problem I am still trying to resolve is getting the system to wake up from sleep mode. My solution for now is to shut it down when I am not working. I am really happy with the Noctua CPU cooler. Whenever I have checked it is at 27-33c. I need to monitor it under more load and check it again. PC Part picker gave me a notice that the cooler could not be verified to fit in the case. It turns out there is plenty of room. I thought it was worth a try before going to a water cooled system and it is working great so far. The BitFenix Ghost is an awesome case. It has plenty of room and it runs very quiet. I will be needing the extra hard drive space to store video files so the extra space will be filled eventually. I really like the hotswap SATA 6 compartment on top. I plan to use it for creating archive drives that can be stored off site or given to clients. The two fans that came with the case are very quiet and were placed perfectly to work with my CPU cooler. I have plenty of room to add more fans later if needed. I like the Samsung monitor. I am planning on spending more on a 4k monitor and use the Samsung as a 2nd monitor. I will let you guys know how the performance tests go. It looks like Photoshop barely stresses the CPU at all.
