This was a build for our After Effects machine at work. It was nice building with basically no limited budget. From what I could find on the web, the i9 was the best overall processor for After Effects due to its high core speeds. The Fractal Design case was amazing to work with. The build quality is far better than the h500 I built my personal PC with. With the AIO and coolers it is dead silent even when running at 100 percent.
