Title says it all, this will be a Music Production build for ITB VI's, Sample Libraries, & Mixing (no recording).
My only concern at this point is noise/cooling. I opted for a fanless GPU already since I know I'll only be using it for dual monitors, and I know my case comes with one 120 mm fan at the back (not sure if it comes with any more fans, I was unable to find out) which from what I've read is good because I want a big fan. However I've read that the stock HSF on the CPU is crappy and can be noisy but don't know what to replace it with. I also don't know if I'll be needing to add any other case fans and where I would install them. The case is going to go on the ground FWIW and I'm not looking for perfection, but if I can future proof it noise wise for a small cost then obviously I would like to for mixing purposes.
Thanks in advance for any input!
