Good advice and recommendations if you thinking on build your DAW computer yourself!
For anyone that are interesting I build my computer myself and managing the systems. You get much better performance and DAW computer and you can specific quality components into your setup. You need still to know “what” quality component to add into the setup.
Also you need still have a lot of “knowhow”, how to do it so its not for everyone especially the novice user or if you have no experience with electro engineering.
I would recommend you have someone that guide you “how to do it safe” the first time. Also read up and check a lot of videos on Internet before you decide to build yourself.
Its important you don’t touch specific parts with your fingers. Otherwise you can basically destroy the electro components and everything, ending up to being a costly experiment instead.
Use high-quality antistatic gloves all the time especially working around with the CPU, memory, motherboard and cards…
Take your time “months” and gather so much info before you begin order component and building the computer.
To make a great DAW computer I recommends these high-quality component manufactories.
