So the last time I built a PC it was using an Intel Core2Duo "Wolfdale" E8200 back in 2008. Since then life (family!) has been my real focus and I haven't got near gaming nor tinkering with home IT as much as I wanted. We started our own company back in 2018, and now I'm doing more from home and less on site work with clients, I wanted a really quick home PC. I wanted something that would last a few years, be brilliant at day to day office work, with capacity for a bit of very casual gaming (1440p), but also running several VMs 24/7 for the home network. I've gone for: Case - Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic in Black PSU - Fractal Design ION+ 660P 660W 80 Plus Platinum Rated Fully Modular CPU - AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Motherboard - Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE RAM - Team Group 8Pack Edition 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 PC4-28800 C16 3600Mhz GPU - Aorus Radeon RX 5700 XT Primary Storage - Patriot Viper VPN4100 Gen4 1TB SSD Secondary Storage - 2x Toshiba 4TB X300 (RAID 1) CPU Cooling - Fractal Design Celsius S36 360mm All in One Water Cooler Case Fans - 6xAkasa AK-FN059 120mm Ultra Quiet Venom Viper Cool Fan Based on the reviews, it looks like the best layout will be 3 fans on the bottom, 3 on the side, all 6 pulling air in, and then the 360mm Radiator on the top pushing out. I had wanted to get a vertical GPU mount, but seemingly now where has any stock. I'll sort out some pictures and a build log once it all arrives - looks like next week based on OCUK backlogs at the moment.
