I did it mainly because it is a hobby. I am a tradesmen and was always building stuff as a kid.
Im only advising on how to set ya fans up for a cool result. I definitely recommend a slim coolermaster 80mm at the back of the cpu if you are doing video processing. Even if it is GPU Cuda based.
I know the power board is a bit flasy, but it is definitely practical in reducing cable clutter and reducing fan speeds. They don't sell plain ones though
I used Xigmatek 120 mm fans all round. If I had my time over I probably would have put 140's as the top fans.
The stock fans are OK sure they are not big budget or quietest, but they are no box of bees either.
