Yesterday I took the plunge in ordering a brand new bespoke PC from Scan.co.uk. I purchased my current one from them a number of years ago and it is slowly dying on me. One of the current issues are some of the USB ports on the main motherboard have become faulty. One minute a device is connected the next my computer cannot see it.
So what did I order, please keep in mind it took me a long time to save up for this one. Behind my acoustic upright, this is the most I have spent on music gear in one go.
Asus PRIME Z390-A Motherboard
Intel i9 9900k (custom overclocked by Scan)
64GB Ram (Crucial DDR4 2666mhz)
Samsung 1TB 970 EVO Plus boot drive
Intel 2TB 660P M.2 Sample Drive
Samsung 1TB 970 EVO Project Drive
Thunderbolt EX 3 Card
be Quiet Dark Rock PRO4 Cooler
650 be Quiet Power Supply
This will all be housed in a be Quiet Silent Base 601 Ora, which is a lovely slim tower that has orange highlights.
I have also picked up a Cubase PC Backlit Astra keyboard from https://logickeyboard.com/shop/steinberg-cubase-nuendo-pc-backlit-astra-keyboard-3425p.html This comes with 2 USB ports so you can plug in pendrives quite easily without bending down to the tower.
It should be here by the end of the week and I will post some pictures when it is up and running. Feel free to ask questions about the build and I will get back to you.
