Hey, I love the build, it's a shame about the high temps on the CPU. I would recommend getting the rear and CPU fans on PWM, so you can make a more custom fan curve to deal with those high temps, if you don't want to go to water cooling.

I've seen a lot worse first builds (usually my own :P) so this is very impressive. Well done, and welcome to the PCMR!

Everything was in the case at that point, except for the casefans. It's also very similar to the carpet that it will be siting on for the future. I'm glad you like the build :)

You would think it is venting up, the the fan orientation in the photos shows that it WAS actually blowing the air onto the Video Card, or Down.

I like this build :)

I would however get some quiet fans, and a quiet aftermarket CPU cooler. MAYBE...an silent PSU as well.

that is a beautiful setup for music creation. You might be able to dual boot into MAC off a second drive, if you want.

I do wonder, what was the price of your videocard? the price your your power supply? motherboard? Thanks!

This is supposedly the completed built v1 cause I still plan on doing a v2 where I would use custom sleeved cables.

I think the only custom cable you "need" is the Video Card cables. Otherwise, the custom length will be a huge help.

It is a lovely build, can't wait to see it with those cables! +1

Having done a bit of research, mostly from jhinnyguru forums and reviews, the parts used to construct them are very cheap, and the soldering can range from workable to sloppy. They do work well for entry builds, that are not overclocked, and don't risk data loss. Take a look for yourself, there are many other CX units that are scored high, and others like this unit that didn't score well.

This doesn't mean you have to change your PSU soon, it just means you should invest in a UPS instead.

I don't normally like builds that have Corsair Builder PSU's, or stock CPU Heat Sinks. But given how much time you took to make a good writ-up, and post some great pictures, I can't help but be impressed. +1

I would upgrade the CPU to a FX-9590, it's the top of the line, and can be had for around $110 area. I got one for my first build, and I've loved it ever since.

oddly enough, the i7 has a worse Intel HD chip in it - Intel HD 530. i5 has the Intel HD 630, so the i5 was the better option IMHO.

Thank you for the reply, and the extra details. Let me explain my own thinking.

Take a look at Page 3 labeled Cooler Orientation. https://www.arctic.ac/us_en/downloads/dl/file/id/1224/freezer_i11_installation_manual_english.pdf

You can see that the CPU Heat Sink Fan has an A Arrow, indicating the direction is pushing the air. This, along with the close proximity of an opposing fan in your case, and the instructions, shows that the CPU Fan and Heat Sink are not installed to work together.

This means your CPU Heat Sink Fan is pushing hot air the opposite direction of your rear case fan.
