Waiting to upgrade to an 8 Core X CPU. GTX970s are super efficient, decided to SLI after realizing how cool they ran, especially upgrading from a GTX580. My old case was about 7 years old, the R5 is BEAST.
STORAGE: 850 evos in RAID0 for system and applications, 2 other SSDS (not RAID) for scratch/cache/temp, Black Drive for Media, Red Drives in the NAS for backup.
I installed the Evercool HDD Cooling Box in the ODD bay to maximize airflow. It houses the HDD and 2 SSDs in an adapter. The included fan was IDE power only so I upgraded to a Noctua 80mm. These drives actually sit on rubber isolators, awesome surprise. I recommend this product to all R5 owners.
AIRFLOW: Technically there's 7 fans (all filtered) for intake and only 1 exhaust. I did not want to open the top for maximum noise dampening and dust protection, but if temps are not adequate, I will move the H100i to exhaust from the top.
