First Build Thoughts and Suggestions

Richness
  • 71 months ago

Build for a incoming CS major in college. Also plan on doing some gaming and video editing. For the most part I have many of these components set in stone, however I need some help with the ram, I'm willing to a little more the dominator platinum, but I was wondering if I should get them in different speeds. As for the mobo I might switch it out for a z97 pro instead since it's cheaper and basically the same thing. Lastly I need some help with keeping every cool as I hear the h440 sucks at air flow so some fans suggestions would be nice as well.
