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.

Thanks

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

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 17 months ago

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

 
 
Divdor [1 Build] 2 points 17 months ago

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

Thanks!

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.

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 17 months ago

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.

 
 
Norm101 [2 Builds] 2 points 17 months ago

The new SSDs don't have the problems of the previous ones.

The difference in speeds between my RAMDISK and my SSD. I'm currently using it as a cache for my browsers and for some of my huge photoshop files. Nice job, btw.

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 17 months ago

Thanks. I still can wait a bit for self healing SSD. [or a killer sale :)]

My boot times for win7pro is 9 seconds. Photoshop opens in 3. I don't even have a super-fast one either. I don't think you'd be disappointed when you finally make the leap. Best of luck!

Holy **** that is fast. I'm going to go sit in my closet and try to convince myself to not spend a shitload more money on my computer

 
 
Norm101 [2 Builds] 1 point 17 months ago

What software are you using for your RAMDISK? And have you gotten yours to save?

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 17 months ago

ImDisk. It's configured to be persistent.

 
 
Norm101 [2 Builds] 1 point 17 months ago

Excellent! I will check it out. Thanks!

 
 
TestBuilds 2 points 17 months ago

Yeah, After Effects doesn't like my 4 GB

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 17 months ago

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

 
 
Norm101 [2 Builds] 1 point 17 months ago

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.

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 17 months ago

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

 
 
pantsinabucket 2 points 17 months ago

I used to run my games on a laptop with the ORIGINAL core duo and 512mb of RAM

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 17 months ago

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.

 
 
JForce522 [1 Build] 1 point 17 months ago

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.

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 17 months ago

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

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

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.

 
 
MissKaizen 1 point 8 months ago

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?

 
 
sw33tp34 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

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