Hi! I know very little about PC hardware, so bear with me here. I am a content creator looking for a very high-end build that will have no problem running pretty much anything content creation or gaming-related. Money is not an issue, happy to spend $5000 on this build.
Here is the current parts list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/R36wkJ -- (can't post direct links sorry lol)
Additional things to note:
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (Tower/OS/monitor/keyboard/mouse/etc\)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-tower/full-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Questions I have about this build:
My favorite case right now is the Lan Cool 216, they seem to have literally worked out all the bugs in that case. But I have build literally dozens of computers in the 011 Evo and understand the aesthetic there. I find that the 011 Evo to be a little easier to work in than the 7000D.
For the most part I'd say all this looks pretty good, I would get a look at the RAM amount though, see what you really need and keep it around that, there is a point where too much ram actually can create a bottleneck as it has to address larger chunks rewriting all of the registry when not necessary.
All of this will fit in the case, that case with what you have there will handle 10 fans easily, and if you go XL model, you can Push/Pull the radiator (fans on both sides) but in practical application it doesn't help all that much.
I do run a custom loop at home and find cooling performance better than an AIO mostly because I have 720 mm of radiator, but the pump is more powerful on a custom loop typically and the live span is going strong on mine. I know that wasn't a specific question you had buy looking at what you state your budget is, I find it useful to creep into that space.
Lian Li fans in that case can all run off a single Lian Li controller which used the USB header rather than ARGB header.
