It's the same as this thread but I'll let it run it's course. That being said, you're advised to follow the stylizing of this thread if you think we can fine tune your existing proposed build otherwise you're just beating about the bush with the same thread and question without making much progress.

The build is fine, I don't know much about what your budget is ad if you've got the ability for more fine tuning(or perhaps better parts for a budget).

I don't think it is a good idea to install the OS on your slowest SSD

Sorry, I really didn't mean to overstep. Thank you for allowing it. The other thread showed solved and it is.
That build was scrapped, very little left of the original. I open to advise and opinions considering how much this helped me last time.

My budget is already a bit stretched but if there is anything I could swap for the better id be open to it.

Is the memory set up okay?


I appreciate the help.

Will it really make much difference?

This the aspect of the build I am most undivided about. Does it affect anything else other than boot speed?

Would it be better if I just use the M.2 for both OS and regular use?

and from what I read the difference from a sata 3 to a M.2 is minimal. Though the pny cs9000is a pretty low level ssd(I already own it)

Thanks

For the cpu cooler?
The case comes with 3 120m fans in front and one in back

would I be okay adding 2 140m fans on the top of the case?
Sorry,yes, I meant cpu cooler. As for case fans, you have to be careful as they can disrupt the airflow, especially when you have intake at the front and with 2 top fans blowing air out,it can actually block the fresh air getting to your cpu cooler and motherboard which will heat your system up even more. Someone with more experience can advise you further.

I decided to go with the Cooler Master MasterBox NR600 it has much better airflow. However it does not include fans.
So what might be some after market fans that are of decent quality but wont brake the bank?
