Description

I built this system for a buddy that has been talking about building a serious gaming rig for a while. He wanted to go big and gave me a ridiculous budget, this is the result... Having a board that supports three M.2 SSDs is as amazing as one would expect. They were configured in a RAID0 array and deliver ridiculous performance. That case is pretty epic as well, I'd like to get one for myself. Cable management is so easy with it and it required very few zip-ties.

Case

Great case, super easy cable routing/management.

What are your read speeds? I have to think that your going to be limited to the speed of the DMI for those drives in that configuration.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I wasn't expecting comments on this build. The build was mostly about the 'wow' factor of the 3 M.2s. And the owner was anxious to get the completed system after I finished it so I didn't do any bench-marking. We've been meaning to do tests, but it still has yet to happen...

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I wasn't expecting comments on this build. Yea, The awesome part was putting it all in just because the owner wanted to. As you can see, the build budget was not small....

What made you choose 3 M.2's over the (currently cheaper) Intel 750 Series 1.2TB PCI-E SSD? It's about the same space, and the 750 has better cooling. I read that M.2s can have issues with thermal throttling unless you get a fan set up right on them.

Also, why did you go with 12TB of HDD storage?

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I wasn't expecting comments on this build. I'll give you the same reason I gave another who commented. The owner wanted a lot of 'flash' an 'wow' so after I showed him the board with 3 M.2 slots, that's what was gonna happen. The same can be said for the HDDs.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I wasn't expecting comments on this build. The board still works like a champ, ASRock has really stepped up their game in the past few years and I've meet Fatal1ty, he a decent fellow so what the heck.

Gotta say, with the price of those M.2's I would of just gotten 2 M.2's and one of the 4tb hard drives. Then you could of easily SLI'd two GTX 1080's and dominated gaming. Still a beautiful rig thou

He still wants to do SLI and I keep telling him he doesn't need it, the guy plays World of Warships for pete's sake. Thanks, it was fun to build.
