Description

2014-01-22 -- The system is used primarly as a development box. Installation was simple. A full tower case makes things a lot easier. I setup the two 250GB SSD in RAID1 as my O/S partition. A trick I had to pull in order to install Win 8.1 Ent from a USB3 jump drive was to unplug all the sata connectors from the mobo (except for my o/s drives and BluRay drive) then install Win 8.1 Ent on the RAID1 partition. I'm currently waiting for the Video Card to come in the mail (have an old Nvidia G-Force in there now). I'll post some performance metrics after I drop the new vid card in there.

Development of what?

Mostly Windows C# dev stuff, some C++, Java and Python as well.

waitwaitwait. What's with the 1200 watt PSU? The thing that would draw the most power is the GPU, and it's only a fraction of the PSU wattage you got there.

Well the 1200 watt PSU is there for some near future add-ons of another vid card, dedicated RAID controller and the multiple drives that will go with it.

You really should get those cables under control. I have this same case and I have way more fans then your current build. It is tricky to do the cables but well worth it. Good luck and hope you enjoy your machine!

Totally agree...the new vid card just came in this week and I plan on spending some time making it look pretty after I put that in. I mainly wanted to get things "functional" to insure all the components were working correctly.

Cable ties are your friend.

Cables could use a bit of work, especially with a fully modular PSU, but great build nonetheless!

Cables are going into the right side panel, however when you have 7 sata devices the cabling is more apparent. Also, development is CPU intensive.
