Upgrading a pre-built PC AND using Linux equals a +1 from me.

ECC is good, so I didn't stress over what variety of it is. I think your drive choice is fine. This build might need an optical drive for OS install but that's your choice. As for file redundancy, I have heard good things about ZFS, which is a filesystem that uses multiple drives in a pool. You could use this with Linux or BSD for sure. I plan on building a waaaaay cheaper server this summer so I have no hands-on experience so you should probably have a more server-savvy user proofread my list lol. EDIT: I would also go with some sort of aftermarket cooler if it's 24/7 use, but that's up to you.

I love the clear water/coolant and tubing, it really compliments the black. Spec-wise, it is awesome as well. I love it +1

Did you have to do any initial driver setup with Linux Mint and the APU? (Nice build btw I love budget stuff)

I'd just love to know what this puppy is going to be used for. I just don't understand these decisions. I personally would've done a z97 board but whatever. Nice deal on the cooler.

Is your top fan an intake or exhaust? You should have the top fan blow out due to the heat rising. Otherwise, great build. The 270x is still a great card. +1

I third this. I would of gone 6300/960 or 8320/970. Otherwise, it's a good build that has a bottleneck.

Why the big hard drive? I don't know much about servers. Are you storing personal files or something?

I love the 9590. I have an i5-4460, but the 9590 is so different and mysterious for some reason. There has been a lot of recent builds with it and it's just dang cool. +1 (I just don't know about that PSU though)

Great! I really like the part choices overall, but with a b85, I would have gone with a 4460 or locked 4590. Otherwise it is very nice. What is the total wattage? I just am interested because you got a small PSU. Intel has low TDP so it should be fine though.

I've heard that some H97 boards can overclock. Is this one able to? If not, you should have gotten either an overclocking board with the 4690k or saved the money and went with a 4460. Just my 2 cents. Great build though. Cable management is very nice. +1

Is that RAM in dual channel? If not, then you should move one module so they are.

Thank you for the feedback. I will redo the cable management either really soon or when I do the next upgrade.

Like I stated in the description, it was as cheap as a non-overclocking H97 board which I was planning to get so I just decided to get it.
