What can I say? It's a beautiful monster. With 5x140mm fans, 8x120mm fans blowing through two EK PE 480 radiators to cool the water from two separate pumps (one for the video cards and one for the processor), it runs ice cool. This is also due to the fact I designed this case from the ground up keeping in mind a very high thermodynamic efficiency that maximizes airflow with a minimum of noise. This sucker churns out almost 800 cubic feet of air per minute with very little effort. because the fans all sit high, the hottest air is evacuated first. When running two ASUS 1080 TI Poseidons in SLI for a 45 minute (SolidWorks 2017 Visualize) render at about 90-100% GPU load , the GPUs will not exceed 39c at any time.
The CPU is decent, but rendering a full desk just with the CPU takes about 2 hours and 39 minutes. With my new AMD ThreadRipper 1950x build, it cuts CPU-only rendering down to just over 59 minutes - yes, it DESTROYS this processor. Too bad the new AMD video cards aren't up to the same standards (imho).
THe storage - the main storage is on the 960 Pro M.2 card. you will see I have an 850 SSD and four 3.5" HDD's. I use the 850 for my tiered storage buffer for the Storage Spaces disk pool. It is LIGHTNING FAST.... way faster than onboard raid 5, and WAY safer. Plus, adding to the storage pool is a breeze... just throw in an extra disk and re-balance it. You have to be running Windows 10 PRO to use Storage Spaces. If you are into video, rendering and design, or just have a TON of stuff to store, this is definitely the way to go. I hope you like the build!
Here's a nice video about the desk build... I built of for a Russian company called HYPERPC and it was used for their booth, and the ASUS ROG booth at the world champion gamer series in Moscow for June 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA_5KoC7u40
Oh yeah, I totally forgot... I built in wireless mobile fast charging on the left desk rail. Just set down your Samsung and it gets plenty of juice.

I mentioned it in the last build I put on here, but while I am an American, I don't produce these in the United States yet... sorry! Maybe in 2018...
Here is the newest version of the desk hooked with the lighting hooked up to the ASUS AURA RGB headers on the motherboard... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3cVFBfpEpU
