This build is being used mostly for web development, graphic design and productivity . I am not a gamer, and I am not doing intense graphical operations, but intend to use this system in the future for an AI project. I know that this system is a little bit overkill for my needs, but I fell in love with the Corsair lineup, and it was about time for an upgrade, after my wife threw the laptop at me and the screen cracked. :)

Overall, I am very satisfied with my build, and did not encounter any problems with the installation , the case has lots of room, excellent airflow, my CPU temps never go over 40C, and the noise levels are very low.

Such a nice build! The Crystal 280X has been on my mind for a while. How was the experience putting everything together in it?

Thank you, Dan, for now, it's enough, I have another 1TB external NVMe drive, hooked via USB 3.1 10Gbps.

Great! How were thoes speakers by the way, I am looking into them. Good base, High, and mids?

I like them, good bass, kinda laking a little bit in the mid-range area, but other than that they are perfect for my needs, also I am not bumping the volume on them, have an bedroom / workspace area.

Nice build overall! Whether for AI Projects, Graphic Operations, Gaming or Entertainment.

This site isn't for ripping apart people's builds. If you want to help someone make a better part list, you can politely use the Part List Opinions Wanted and Create A Part List For Me subforums.

Thanks, I don’t know what the deal was with that guy, trolling people’s builds.

Probably just jealousy, I men imo he's kind right about the graphics card but besides that this is a great build. Then again he doesn't need a great gpu for what he's doing on it so for his purposes its amazing.

Thank you! For my needs I might as well use an APU, the fans are barely starting. :)
