Thank you for clarifying the difference between headset and headphones.

The static pressure fans are great. I only used two of them for the h100i in a push only configuration. This way the air can pass through the radiator, chassis and magnetic cover on the top in order to provide superior cooling for the closed loop system. The airflow fans are excellent as well and cool the graphics cards quite well. The chassis is literally cool to the touch as I feel all the air being sucked into the rig. They are both very very quiet.

You are correct when it comes to the cost of a 3TB vs 2x 1TB HDDs however I wanted to keep everything separate in case one of the drives went out. The gaming HDD will be doing quite a bit of work reading and writing and I wanted to keep my important files on an HDD that barely did any work to increase the longevity. I am also planning on setting up another 1TB HDD in RAID 1 format for the files HDD to decrease the risk of losing my documents. If the games HDD goes out, oh well. I've lost nothing.

Like you, I have yet to use my Bluray player. I'm sure I will in the future though. Thanks.

Thank you. I agree with you on the cable management. I learned a lot from this first build and will be sure to apply that knowledge towards my next mini ITX build.
