The pic with the red glow from the hot swap bay is the most current and shows how my cables are ran.

Edit: To address the cable management concerns below.

That ram looks really cool. I have red gskill ripjaws and it looks okay, but this looks better.

Everyone is going to ask anyway, so why the 32gb of Ram? When you say multi-purpose, what all do you use it for?

I knew they would. When I run AfterEffects with a RAMDISK.

Glad I asked before everyone trashed you for it. That should run aftereffects really well. Forgot to say it earlier, nice build.

I've just started playing with RAMDISKs. WOW is all I can say. I have 16Gb on my current build and I'm really considering upgrading to 32Gb for my next one.

Faster than SSD. RAMDISK plus SSD shaves a second or two off huge files opening, but you work with what you can when you can. SSD's scare me a bit because a colleague had some early gen SSD's and they died pretty quickly. That's why I went RAMDISK to try and save the future SSD some wear and tear. Hope that makes sense.

Yeah, After Effects doesn't like my 4 GB

:( I feel that. My last system was a Core 2 Duo 2.66 with 4GB ram.

LOL My last system was a Core 2 Duo with 2Gb or RAM than I upgraded to 4. Now I'm running an i5 3570k at 4.2Ghz with 16Gb RAM. The difference made my jaw hit the floor.

I had 1Gb RAM when I first got the Core 2 haha

Editing and rendering are most typical usage. I got it stable at 2133, but i'm probably going to try 1866 with maybe 8-10-10-30 at the suggestion of the Admin from the G.Skill tech forum.

How is that case working for you? I've heard it is a bit unorthodox (with the mobo upside down)--was it hard to work in?

It looks like the cable management could be better (I'll blame that on the case). Nice build though.

Extremely easy to work in actually, bigger than you picture. By far. My desk used to have a top and a shelf, but the last computer required the shelf to be removed and this one required the whole top half of my desk to be removed. I have video of all of my builds if you're interested in seeing the case accept all of its new parts. I only put this one up because most of my builds aren't personal, they are typically for clients. I like the vertical air flow and the top fans are always sucking the hot air out. The only exhaust i can feel heat from is the one right by the CPU under full load, but I haven't seen it get much higher that 51°C. Stays chilly, with room to mound rads when I come up with the other few blocks I need. I want to run one on the voltage regulator if I'm going liquid.

Edit: My front mount PSU just barely makes 2 of the runs so there's that.

The ram is a little too overkill. I would have just stayed with 16gb of ram and gotten a i5 4670k and a 660. Same with the power supply. A little too overkill

Its for my ramdisk, And the PSU is overkill. I did the swap from my 620 to have headspace and to have the PCI-E 8 pins for the classified 770 that was coming.

Nice setup! And I was debating about the case, but if it does really follow the natural flow of heat, then it's a clincher for me. I don't know too much about building, but it sounds like it could do some damage (in a good way!) By the way, how is the monitor for you? Pros? Cons?

I like the monitor, but am looking to upgrade it. It has a limited viewing angle

why a 1080ti when you can go for the 2080ti for about the same $, why noctua nh-d14 instead of you pretty nh-d15 black version? and why a 850w titanium was not enough??

This is a very old build that gets updated on occasion. I have a 3 year old 1080, My nh-d15 is from when they first came out. I use seasonic prime, but used to use the 1000w
