Description

Looking for data access speed and expandability... OS/system is on the 1TB Samsung 950 Pro and fully cached using ASUS RAMDISK. All user docs, music, application installs, and data storage are on the Intel 750's (RAID0, plugged into PCIE NVMe adaptor cards and piped through m.2 via the ASUS HyperKit (M.2 to Mini SAS HD adapter) for a screaming 32 GB/s transfer speed. (https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboard-Accessories/Hyper_Kit/) Corsair H100 LC now installed and a new local backup (8TB SATA6 RAID5 Seagate Ironwolf Pro's (X4)), duped in Carbonite. Overclocked at 14% and not even a tick on temp or glitching. Thinking about GPU LC and updating the mobo/cpu...hmmmmm.

Part Reviews

Storage

No performance issues so far...setting this up on the ROG Strix x99 was a pain. Needed two additional PCIeNVM cards tapped into the ASUS HyperKit (M.2 to Mini SAS HD adapter to support 2.5-inch NVMe SSDs): https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboard-Accessories/Hyper_Kit for 32 Gb/s.

That case and hardware are screaming for a custom loop. Nice hardware.

Thank you and YES! Custom loop is coming, if the tax return is a positive cash flow...if not, next year :)

Thank you for the vote! The 200mm’s are plugged directly into the mb, the rog strix makes fan control simple. The arrays of 120’s are connected via two hubs: SilverStone PWM Fan Hub System Cables, Black (CPF04) which are simple plugged into the mb as well. Works like a charm. I’ll be keeping most of the 120’s on the top since I keep my phone, external drives, and network hub on top of the case... air flow helps keep them cool...but I’m replacing the bottom array with a triple 240mm push/pull liquid cooling radiator that will service the memory and cpu, then I’ll be cranking up the over clocking. The noctua has been a stellar cooling tower at 12% oc, but the memory, even with their fan systems are cooking a bit. I’m curious as to the titan’s temp..haven’t even looked into it yet.

Nice build, this one didn't get much attention so I thought I would stop by, +1!

By the way, you can plug in your mouse and keyboard through the back USBs for a cleaner look

TYVM! I’ve had a very bad year...just getting around to the liquid cooling. Should post again in a month. Sorry for the horrifyingly late response. Just haven’t had the luxury of complete inn the build. It runs fantastic btw.

So, I assume this is a high-end gaming pc since no specified workstation scenario, would this be correct?

Indeed,gaming and image/vid processing. Although it does run Maya quite well :)
