I placed the VI Formula MOBO as a placeholder, I plan on going forward with the build once the VII Formula is released.
This is what I've pieced together. It will be my first rig but after researching for a while I feel like I'd be able to handle it. Saying that, I may tinker with overclocking down the line but for the time being it'd be kept stock. I plan on using it mainly for light workstation usage, maybe remoting into my work computer once in a while to use accounting software, but mainly to have the power needed for running high settings on games without having to upgrade in the near future.
My main concern is keeping it quiet but also sufficient cooling (my current setup is obnoxiously loud and struggles with heat sometimes). I plan on replacing the two fans on the CPU cooler as well as the rear and two front fans on the case. Is this sufficient cooling for my application or should I get an additional fan for the side/bottom?
I'm fairly flexible with my budget as long as I get the value to justify paying more.
Thanks for the help! Any other suggestions for a first timer would be great and welcomed too.
