I haven't had any issue with noise at all. The 3 drives fit no problem into the drive cage. It's a great case for a great price!
It's mainly my Plex Server. I host content for family and friends. I haven't played any games on it yet but it is capable of that as well. I mostly put the GTX 690 in there because I like the way it looks and it's just been sitting on a shelf for a long time now.
This is really above and beyond what you would need for a small home server, I just always wanted to build a dual CPU rig so I went for it.
Yea i'm thinking of maybe the RGB Cooler Master ones. Honestly just whatever is the best deal since I have to get 2 of them.
I didn't both doing any modifications to the case, minus removing the cable channel thing but I don't think that counts as a mod because it is only held in with screws. 5/9 screws holds the board in place pretty well. If I was going to use heavy CPU coolers I would probably want to drill a hole for the top right screw on the motherboard.
It is a bit of a pain to fit the board in there because it is so damn big but it does fit.
Thanks! It was fun to build. I am using Windows 10 Pro currently.
