wiznerd's covid pc

This started as a single upgrade to get rid of a CPU bottleneck and ended up as a COVID induced science project resulting in my first full build. My top priorities were achieving low temperatures and minimizing noise. The main use is FPS gaming.

Thanks to the community for letting me see their ideas as I decided on my own build. :)
