The original purpose of the build was for software development, particularly large C codes. Its original GPU was an RX 550 since I wasn't planning to game on it. It also serves as a small storage server, with primary storage running on the two SX8200 Pro in RAID-0 on btrfs (although I'm thinking of moving to ZFS). It also serves a local music player, so that people in the house are free to stream music from it. As I recently started to get into gaming during the build, I purchased an RX 6600 XT (non-Quadro NVIDIA drivers are a pain to install on any system). I'm planning to re-use the RX 550 as a host GPU (since I'm running Linux) and moving my RX 6600 XT to a Windows guest. The games I'm currently playing are Skyrim, Doom 2016 / Eternal, Yakuza series, The Witcher series, and GTA 5 (and others in the backlog). Some of the goals of the build, not relating to its performance, are that it must be quiet, stable, and easy to maintain. Hence, the Noctua coolers and fans, ECC memory, fanless PSU, and the computer not running outside a case. I've also replaced the GPU fans with the Noctua NF-A12x25, so it will be running cool and quiet. As of writing, a GPU fan adapter is currently waiting for manufacturing a long with a custom test-bench made from aluminum T-frames and Delrin. Future upgrades will replacing with 2 TB SSD from a more reputable brand as the drives are recently not being detected by the system (both in Linux and Windows).
