Haven't been on here in forever, but to answer your question: I painted it myself. It was a black drive, and I used a rattle can to make it the right color.

I wound up selling it to pay for the USB version of the same card. It wasn't an ideal solution, but there really is no space left near my PCI slots with my cards there.

For me, running RAID 1 instead of RAID 0 would defeat the purpose of the drives. I already have 6 TB of backup, and the SSD array is just there to serve as the fastest storage in my system. Programs like Sony Vegas, Photoshop, and all of my games go on there. Any sensitive files are then backed up on my HDDs for security. I'm not worried about losing the program files, because they can all be easily replaced; I just want a stable and safe boot drive because a failed boot drive is much more of an issue to me, hence the M.2.

The pink lights are specially made for the Enthoo Luxe and can be bought straight from Phanteks.

I had a girlfriend when I posted my first build on here and the total came out to <$2k before peripherals.

I no longer have a girlfriend and my current rig is pushing $6 grand.

These things may or may not be related.

Any reason you put literally the cheapest 16GB (DDR4) set of RAM available in a $5k+ build? It seems like you put a lot of attention into detail, but then you've got this low-frequency RAM with no heat-spreaders or visual embellishment.

Can I just point out that the unlisted Corsair AF120/140 in the back of the case cost half as much as the case hahaaa. Really, though, it's a nice looking budget build.

As someone who had a nearly identical build at one point, I think it's kind of optimistic asking for 4k 60 fps out of this thing. Simply put, gaming on 4k (and 5k, which is on the way) is just about the hardest thing you can ask from a system as of now. I have an ROG Swift, and I swapped out my 970s for 980s after some games wouldn't run at 1440p 144 fps. I'm legitimately interested in what kind of FPS numbers you're getting in modern (not 4 years old like Skyrim), graphically intense games.

The M.2 is for my OS and main programs, the SSDs are in a RAID 0 configuration for my game library, the first HDD is for most of my files (music, pictures, videos), and the second HDD is for all of my backups.

You can put the card in the bottom-most PCIe 2.0 x4 slot, even though the card is x1 (all PCIe is backwards and forwards compatible) and it will function just fine. With the addition of the M.2 drive, that becomes the only option as well.

Unfortunately, my computer is in the basement of a 100+ year old house with 2 dogs and forced-air heating. Dusting is pretty much and every day affair for me, but a couple of pictures were taken in between dusting sessions. I use a DataVac to blow out my case every few days though, so it's much cleaner than my desk.

You had a Logisys PSU listed and got a bunch of negative comments about it, so you changed it to an equally volatile "80+" PSU. That's not how this works, man.

Cable management is way harder than it looks.

Thanks for trying at least. Just a tip: unplug everything from the motherboard and then put the cables that go the furthest at the bottom of the pile of cables before you plug them back in. That will keep them from crossing over each other and make them look a lot cleaner.

You're not allowed to submit an X99 build with less than 10 pictures. The people demand it.

My first case had no cable management options as well, so I feel your pain. I'd recommend picking up a bag of zip ties and just zipping together all of the cables that are going in the same direction until you need each individual cable to split off. It'll make it look less cluttered. You can also drop your HDD into the lowest bay and stuff as many unused cables as possible into the cage above it. Good luck, buddy. I hope you enjoyed your excursion into PC building.

Do you really plan on dropping cash on an X99 and 6-core intel? Your planned upgrades seem like they'd cost as much or more than your entire build as it is right now.

It looks very clean. However, if you plan on doing any overclocking, I'd replace those AF series fans on the CPU cooler with some static pressure fans. Static pressure is much more effective at cooling heat sinks and radiators over just regular air flow fans.

I also have a 7870 sitting in a box in my room next to two Sapphire 7970s and an i7-2600. People who consistently buy new upgrades tend to have extra parts, and I save mine for builds for friends and family as I'd rather give them to someone I know than sell them on eBay.

They keyboard itself if fantastic. However, the software controlling the functionality of the lights and macros hasn't quite caught up to the potential for the RGBs. Software can always be updated though, so I wouldn't let that scare you off. I might recommend picking up the K70RGB instead of the K95 simply because the Corsair forums where you can download user-created lighting schemes is populated almost entirely by K70 users, so just about every submission is made for the K70 and not the K95.

Very sorry. It was a moment of derp on my part when I was looking for a place with ample lighting for the picture. To be fair, they're sitting plastic side down with no conductive material touching the floor.

They're actually just white 6+2 cables. I bought the entire set from corsair, and those were included. I have the extra +2 bits zip-tied out of sight.

Can we have a little more explanation here? I mean, mad props for dropping a grand on a killer GPU, but why would you cheap out on the processor? Are you just that AMD-loyal?

What was the reasoning behind buying an EATX board when you're only using 2 DIMMs and a single GPU? It seems like it would just make your case a bit more cramped.

Could we have an explanation on why you picked each of these parts? I completely respect your right to do your own thing, but I'm just very confused as to some of these choices.

The velvet bag thing was a joke because Corsair packs their high end PSUs in a velvet bag for some reason. I haven't noticed excess noise from my SP120s. If anything, the 140mm Phanteks is the loudest of the bunch. The different mice are for different games, but I also use the G600 for macros of common lines of code when I'm programming, as I'm a computer science major in college.

It's made specifically for the Enthoo Luxe and matches the colors for the front/top lights exactly. I couldn't tell you if it could work in any other case because I honestly have no idea how the circuitry works-- I just know that I push a button and pretty lights come out.

The Corsair is for FPS games: strong palm grip, dedicated sniper button, fantastic build quality that give the mouse a nice thud when I slam it on my table in anger

The Logitech is for RTS/MOBAs where I can make use of its gratuitous G-keys.

Ideally, I would. However, the G35 was a gift from my girlfriend so I'd feel super bad if I stopped using it less than a year after she gave it to me.

Thanks for the comment. I probably should have stated it in the description, but my desk is in an... unusual place. I pull a Harry Potter and live under a set of stairs (my house isn't huge) so I have very limited desk space. That's why I stick to a single 23" monitor and why I went with the GTX 970. I had to work with what i had.
