I absolutely adore white color schemes, that's all I can say...

Great job!

It was actually a bit cheaper to buy 2 2x8GB over 4 2x4GB RAM kits, even though they were clocked at the exact same speed. This also allows me to upgrade to 64GB in the future... But I do agree that filling the DIMM slots would've created a more "complete" look.

This build looks amazing!

There's something about the color scheme that makes looking at the cabling just as pleasent as looking at the components...splendid job!

Did you also consider switching to MariaDB over mysql to use as Kodi's backend? It might increase performance a little bit

I just lost my previous reply by bumping my "back" macro on my mouse so I'll make this response a bit shorter...

1) I had it for about 1 day

2) No, but it shot green sparks out of the exhaust and refused to power on again

3) EVGA doesn't do that AFAIK, but Asus and Crucial were more than helpful in this regard.

I give it an 11 (thousand).

There's more than enough room to install components, the metal is easy to drill through, and the whole thing smells like pine needles when you take it out of the box; plus the side-panels are detachable and you can request Corsair to give you free spare panels if you need them. I only wish the back-panel spacing was a teensy bit wider so I didn't have to spend so much time organizing my cables where nobody will see them in order to get the door to shut ;P

I really wanted to, too, but the heatsink was somehow fused to the GPU mainboard, making it impossible to install the correct water block, or any water block for that matter...

The EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2. Returning it was easy enough but support wasn't very helpful.

Sadly, this is the 2nd out of 2 things I've purchased from EVGA that have failed (The first being an old GTX 560ti), although on the 560ti the support I received was amazing; they even went as far as to install OpenBSD on a spare machine to replicate my setup.

The nice thing about the Sharkbite tubing is that all I have to do is "clip" the piping and add a couple more fittings to "upgrade" the cooling... perhaps in a few months I'll upgrade to a better GPU and do this. ;D

Nice water cooling loop, what do you plan to be doing with the computer now that you can essentially simultaneously simulate gravitational interactions between a large portion of stars in the milky way galaxy with it? ;)

All I can say to everything else is +100A(g_64, g_64)!

Nice cable management, and your motherboard's EFI shell looks quite lovely.

Perhaps in the future, but since it's running mainly as a server/kiosk there really isn't a need for a better GPU ATM.

I just added some pictures to the end of the list without the side panel.

I had to restore a bunch of software on Aquarius due to the fact that it's running a fresh OS install and the whole time I was sitting there I had to keep getting up to use the restroom on account of constantly listening to that thing pump fresh water into the tank... Considering adding "noise cancelling headphones" to the parts list.
