This is a build that was commissioned to replace the ancient main PC in a busy doctor's office. In terms of performance, the build is frankly overkill, but the PC should treat them well for many years to come.
Due to the very important nature of the data that they are working with, I decided to focus on implementing data security measures via hardware. Thus, the NVMe drives are running in RAID 1, protecting against single drive failure, and the RAM is running with ECC enabled. Additionally, I found high performance at low temperatures and acoustics to be important as well, hence the upgraded CPU and case fans.
Overall, I'm really happy with how this build turned out and look forward to seeing the reactions from the doctor and office staff.
(Bonus: Cat tax!)
Incredible performance at a very fair price.
Far and away the best cooler under 30€. Performance, aesthetics, and acoustics are on point.
It's not the best X570 board (by a long shot), but it's the only mATX mobo on the market. Performance paired with a Ryzen 5 3600 as in my case is certainly sufficient. Good I/O and layout and plentiful internal connections, such as fan headers. Supports ECC RAM and Thunderbolt 3 (the latter with an AIC).
Cheapest RAM with these specs I could find. Performs well and ECC was automatically enabled on my ASRock X570 board.
On the pricey side, but performance is incredible across all read/write scenarios.
This seems to be THE mATX case with 5.25" bays and good airflow. For the price, the build quality is quite good. I've had several Fractal cases and they have all been excellent.
Great, quiet PSU.
A bit on the loud side, but for 12€, I can't complain too much.
Quiet and can certainly push some air.
