Workstation used for 3D Rendering, Photo/Video Editing & Panoramic Stitching.
ASUS X99 WS-E motherboard fitted nicely after initially receiving a mismatch error with Corsairs 780T on PCPartPicker. Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate screwed easily into motherboard without having to use the supplied back plate.
Gigabyte GTX 980 G1's nearly silent until under full load, Corsair HX1000i fan is inactive until under half load, even then not much noise. With all fans in turbo mode and the 980's under full load whilst playing Shadows of Mordor at 4K it sounds like it is about to take off!
LED lights on the 980's are dimmed to around the 25% mark, there is also a blue LED strip light around the top and left half of the case.
