Hi, I looked at a few other similar builds for silent, high-end workstation/gaming tower and put together this preliminary build:
I chose desktop components over workstation components since they offered better price/performance ratios and my video editing will generally not be 4K, while my gaming will be.
Another consideration was I wanted something pretty compact and silent so I chose the H440 case. I've read about airflow problems with this case, so I decided to replace all case and radiator fans with high static pressure Noctua NF-F12s. Most other components were all chosen with good performance/noise ratios in mind.
As for radiator/fan positioning, I am planning on mounting the R9 295x2 radiator on the back exhaust in a push/pull configuration and the H110 radiator on the top exhaust with 3 front panel fans as intake.
If anyone has any recommendations for better parts or an improved cooling arrangement please let me know. Any input is greatly appreciated.
