With that said....

I am looking at a new build. I have several questions. My primary use is video editing in Premiere, After Effects and converting RAW files. Eventually 3D and animation work. I hate lag and want a powerful, smooth running and fast machine. I currently use a 2 year old Sager notebook.

1) Cooling. What is the best way with my case of choice? I don’t want to mod the case.
2) Is this build the best bang for the buck?
3) What suggestions or improvements could you see, or do you recommend?

Case - COOLER MASTER Storm Stryker
Motherboard – Sabertooth 990FX/GEN3
CPU – AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz
GPU – AMX FirePro W7000 4GB
PSU – COOLER MASTER 1500W
RAM – CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB 1866
Media - LG Blu Ray Burner w/3D Play Back
Card Reader – AFT Pro 35U All-in-one 2.0
SSD – 120GB (Operating System), 240GB (Programs, Apps), 120GB (caching, scratch disks, etc)
HHD – 4 Seagate Barracude 7200 Enterprise 3TB - 2 sets of 2 striped drives each; one set for reading and the other for writing

welcome~ go full water i love this kit http://www.swiftech.com/H2O-x20-Edge-HD.aspx fits right in and you can still add to it. i was able to stablily do 4.8ish. prolly could of been higher but i was relatively new to ocing!~

cant comment about firepro but my 7970s rock out everything !~

and yes i think you made a great choice with 8350 may pm kya he does alot with video editing / rendering but i do think it would be better then an i7

How big of a pump can I put in the bottom of the case?

I will be creating a light box and I want to hide the pump. I'm thinking on getting a 655 pump and using an EK pump top so I won't have a 1/2" barb sticking up so high. The dimentions of the pump top is about 80mm high...which I should have 85mm-90mm of space between the bottom of the case and the bottom of the light box (top of the PSU). Will this be too close for comfort?

If anything, I may end up getting the Aquacomputer Aqualis with pump adapter, which would sit between the mobo and the 360mm rad in front.

I have a question. I had a 200mm exhaust for the longest time and I put 2x 120mm on top instead. Would it be more effective to use an intake or exhaust? I have a Phanteks ph-tc12dx CPU cooler and an AF140 in the rear.
It has Ryzen

I've got a spare one , but in the UK so probably cost and postage wont make it viable.
But anyone needing one make me an offer. Brand new and unused.

how much would the delivery cost? and how much are you willing to sell it?

would be better for cpu temps as intake. but may hurt board temps. it is up to you as to what you need. / how your system is set up !~

you need to balance your intakes/ exhausts
6 intakes and 1 exhaust.... is bad

You will be happy with a custom Waterloop besides the hassle of draining the loop every now and then the temps are fantastic. Going from a h100 to custom water loop I get about 10c better temps in prime. Guess more coolant and rad space to disipate heat better. On my old 3770k used to get 75c on h100 45x100 running prime. On the custom loop was getting 65 ish and it looks awesome in the case too.

In my own experience it's handier to try all possible setups out and see what better temps you got on idle and load.

I am looking for two PSU covers like you have. I looked on the CM site and did not see them. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks
