Similar to my first build, this is a workstation PC for an image processing application. This one will be delivered headless, thus no GPU.
The cooler is backwards...
Bahahaha. Good catch! Fortunately, quickly resolved.
Your part list says that you have 4 RAM modules, as I don't see any I assume that they are all under your CPU fan. LGA2011 and your CPU both allow Quad channel RAM therefore it is better to either place all RAM in the blue or all RAM modules in the black slots.
And about the build, looks very clean you have done a nice job. +1
Man. I feel sheepish. Thanks!
You're welcome, enjoy the build!
What was in the pci slot?
Spare video card I had laying around for software installs.
What does "This one will be delivered headless, thus no GPU." mean?
it means it will be used without peripherals (keyboard, monitor, mouse)
Typically headless builds are accessed over a network connection, such as SSH, and they do not actually run a graphical interface.
No monitor, just a networked number-cruncher.
