They are macro keys color matched to my creative cloud apps (blue for photoshop, pink for after effects, violet for premiere, etc.)

Gorgeous! Can we have some pics of the inside? Weird choice of storage, can you explain the reasoning behind that please?

Sure! So as a creative professional specializing in video I have a 250g solid state for my OS/Critical Apps, 500gb solid state dedicated to Adobe for rendering video output, 3tb of HDD dedicated to adobe media storage (footage in this case), 1tb of HDD dedicated to shared Adobe cache, and the final 1tb is dedicated to gaming (where I install my steam games and such). I based this configuration (sans the gaming drive) off of Harm Millard's hard drive array which can be found on the official Adobe forums.

You've literally thought of everything. I've never run more than two hard drives in the same system :P

Adobe is quite picky when it comes to reading, writing, and caching at the same time. Having more hard drives allows your system with all of it's shiny and expensive parts to not bottleneck at the arguably cheapest part of your system ;)

Put some new photos up just for you. Sorry for the bad quality, I took them on my phone and the S5 camera isn't that great in low light :/. These were taken during the build process!

Nice Rig - Yes Harm knows his configuration but I see you're not using RAID 5 or Raid 10 - make sure you're backing up!

Very nice :-) What's the impact on noise having the Kraken mounted on top and ModuVent removed please?

Aside from a very VERY subtle "Whirr" sound from my radiator fans and my exhaust fan, I hear nothing!

Thanks! Wondering about your fan setup...you've put the 2 Fractal at front intake, the AF140 as bottom-top extract and the 2 SP140 as push to the radiator in place of NZXT once, right?

Yes, about a 5 degree difference honestly. Crazy!

Whenever I see "6 Core" I expect the AMD FX 6300 and I'm like "Yay, a budget build!" Then I realize it's just this overpriced i7. smh

Not everyone is short on funds. You pay for performance and it isn't always the best price to performance ratio however the 5820k spanks the FX 6300 every day of the week.
