Replaced w/Janus 2.0 here http://pcpartpicker.com/b/XtM8TW
As this was the end of my father and the beginning of my new life running his company I decided to name this Project Janus. A Tattoo of mine now marks the occasion. As always I love and miss you Dad...
I kept very few items of my original design and also decided on an aesthetic upgrade as well. You be the judge of my accomplishment in that area.
First addition was even more fans and controllers (5 Controllers and 32 fans total). Next was a second and third disc drive to speed up my disc ripping ????. To do both of these required another case. So while I was at it I added another radiator. How to power such a monster ????? Well, how about a second PSU? 2500W Here we go... Let's speed it up a bit 4.6Ghz 5960X anyone? Man 1440p surround is rough on the VRAM. Should upgrade the cards too. Hrm 4XTitan X Hydro Copper SLI With 48GB VRAM aught to cover it. All this water I might as well cool the VRM/Board. Check???? Okay... Several K extra and I've built a Super Computer worthy of the name...
Heat... This now has 3 Radiators because the 5960x is a fire cracker in both speed and heat. Ripping movies has never been so fast but good god it runs 15-20c hotter than the 5930k w/less voltage. So the extra radiator and motherboard cooler were essential. I run Firestrike Tests at 4.6 but usually keep it clocked at 4.5 to prevent degradation from heat. You don't build something this expensive and not try to make it last. The Titan X's are really cool. They don't break 55c ever. Probably because I didn't mod the PCB and the highest Voltage I get is 1.275. I'm happy to be on the Firestrike leaderboard but I don't need in the top ten just to burn out thousands of dollars in hardware (I'm unsponsored). Speaking of heat, before anyone asks, I connected the cases w/industrial strength Velcro. It seems laughable but the need to be separable w/o much difficulty and they need to be air tight. It actually works quite well. I did have to mod both cases a fair bit to make everything line up well. If I were to do it all over again I might go w/900d's like most everyone else but I really like the look of these cases. I don't see or have yet to see any 900d's in white.

Worst Bios and USB drivers I have ever seen and super, super, super glitchy....
