The price shown doesn't include the power supply, case, or motherboard.
Most machines at this level seem to be water cooled. Thanks for the reminder that air cooling works just fine.
This may be the most powerful pink computer on the planet! More photos of the interior would be nice.
It looks like a lot of performance per cubic inch. Did you keep the stock Ryzen cooler? More photos would be great.
I've never had those issues with my Z27s. I haven't seen backlight bleeding. I don't use it to watch TV although I've watched online videos and movie trailers and for those it has been fine.
My attempts to calibrate the monitor using the HP software could be best described as failures. If I really wanted to calibrate it I would go with a third-party calibrator "puck" and monitor profiling software.
When I need calibrated color or gamut beyond SRGB I use a Mac which has an HP Dreamcolor LP2480ZX monitor. Unfortunately HP's support for that monitor has been abysmal and I would be very unlikely to buy another high end monitor from HP. But this is getting off of the subject.
For my use, which is software development and web surfing mostly this monitor has been great. Maybe you need a monitor profile on the Mac that matches your actual monitor.
The CPU/GPU balance looks good for software development. I have a Ryzen 1700 in box I use for that and it is a really nice choice.
I expect that this machine is very quiet in normal operation too.
You have the wrong motherboard listed in your parts list. You have the GA-AB350M-HD3, not the GA-AB350M-D3H. They're not quite the same. I have no idea why Gigabyte would have two parts with such confusing numbers.
It is a nice build either way.
The PCI card supports GPIB (IEEE 488). I don't plan to install it or the National Instruments drivers unless I need it for something.
The fan does match the cat. But the cat has gotten herself pretty much banned from the room where the computer lives because she climbs up onto the shelves and knocks things off.
She knows she is not allowed on the table so she won't go there, at least if someone is watching.
I have deliberately let the cats walk across some prototype hardware - if it was that sensitive I wanted to know about it.
