Description

This is the second PC I have built for my music production and gaming needs. It turned out great, and I have enjoyed it thoroughly! I definitely need to get a second monitor in the near future, but my desk is an issue. Please let me know what you think about it!

Also, I stream on Twitch. Stop by and say hi sometime! https://www.twitch.tv/twigler

Looks amazing, especially that dark glass panel on the case, wow!

Can I ask about the system design choices here?

My understanding was that a lot of music production software doesn't use multiple cores/threads because the workloads, given their nature, just can't be parallelized to any great extent.

It was a while ago that I dived into this for a build, and I'm interested to hear if newer software is better at exploiting multi-core/thread CPUs, or if the 6-core/12-thread i7-8700K is here simply (and reasonably!) because it also has blazing fast single-core performance too?

The tinted panel is great! Keeps the RGB brightness subtle enough to withstand all day!

Honestly, I picked the 8700K because it fit my budget. Music production uses a good amount of threads depending on how complex your project gets. As it gets more complex, there is also the need for all the sounds to be able to playback altogether. It all adds up, but yeah I am sure the 8700K is overkill as I have never maxed it out on a project. I mainly wanted to build a PC that would last at least 5 years because who knows what crazy advancements in music, gaming, or new ventures could require.

Awesome build ! I’m working with a lot of the same parts as you for my build so I was just wondering ; did you top mount or front mount the x62?

Thanks in advance !

Front mount don't think there is enough space for a top mount
