You need an exhaust fan for that case in your build or it's going to become a hotbox. Try this.

Please let me know if you have any recommendations, or think there will be any compatibility issues / bottlenecking / overheating
Looks really good. Couple things-
  • Unless you have a specific need for 64 GB ram, 32GB will already be more than enough.
  • Be sure to check if bios update is needed to support the CPU. Here's a link to MSI support. MSI also has a support page for help flashing the bios if you need it.
  • If only using a single SSD you may want to partition 250GB for windows only.

It looks really good for what purpose? Because if that build is for gaming then it can be improved upon while cutting $1000 off the total cost.

If I end up needing to update my bios for my motherboard is that difficult to do? & good idea with the windows stuff :D

That is mostly just overkill, the motherboard has a BIOS flash button so it's easy to update the BIOS, no drive to record to, can't comment on the video card since you never listed the monitor resolution.

About 500 less with a better drive setup. EDIT actually has a drive to record to. I would also try the Newegg Shuffle for a while to try to get a better price on the video card.

Still no word on the monitor resolution so don't know if you actually need that much card or power supply.
