Build Update - Getting ready for Video Editing and Streaming

37 months ago

I've done some thinking and am now considering keeping my computer and just upgrading it rather than selling off the whole thing to build a new one. Primary needs are great performance in gaming, streaming, and video/photo editing. I'm going with 32GB of RAM for this very reason. Let me know what could be changed or improved upon. It's got a red/black theme obviously (only reason there's the Dominator RAM is so I can paint the heatsinks)

Pretty good upgrade, I would say that you won't need 5 fans, unless you're putting some of them in push/pull on your radiator

I was just going to put the fans in instead of worrying about LED lighting inside the case. It fills all the spots on the case hence the weird number. Also contributing to that is my paranoia of cooling in a full glass case.
