How much did all of that cost you?
I aim at a max of 3.6Ghz and as quiet as possible for a 24/7 setup. My kid needs to be able to sleep at night you know
Besides to that, it would be overkill if I was in a cold place yeah but ambient temp here is high.
Those are at idle, CPU at 3Ghz and GPU's at stock:
Total cost was around $800.
