    - Did some cable management

    - Removed mechanical hard drives and cages, replaced with 3 x 1TB Samsung EVO in Raid-0, backup on an external WD 3TB

    - Considering intake at the bottom because I ordered the 750D normal, not the airflow. The moment I put the front panel on, it switch from positive to negative airflow. Still waiting on corsair airflow kit for front panel, but this will depend on the setup with the hybrid EVGA I ordered.

    - Removed Optical drive for better look. Considering drilling out the rivets to take out the optical cage bay.

    - Tried Corsair Quiet Led Fans, not sure I like them, trying out for a couple weeks, sucks that the radiator SP fans are 3 pins, can't control from Corsair Link.

    - I've 2 x EVGA Hybrid arriving Friday, this will be a fun challenge to install that in the case with 2 x 120MM Rads. Will provide pics when done. I also ordered the updated shrouds because the regular 980Ti Hybrids are fugly. I know they are reference cards but I don't care much about GPU benchmarks at this point, all I want is cold cards, a quiet profile and I'm too lazy to build and maintain a custom loop.

    Note: Sorry for the wall of text.

    Very happy with the results! Just a little nervous of having 3 points of failure for a single partition, but that's what backups are for.

    Thanks guys! Yes the 950 are nice little beasts. Crazy that such a small stick sitting on the board can bring that kind of speed.

    Very fast indeed!

    You probably don't need the raid 0 setup for storage. Make a raid 1 instead for a safer configuration. :) (If the 950 is the boot drive).

    I would need to delete some games from my Steam Collection for that :) I'm at bout 2TB usage out of 3TB. I considered Raid-5, that would give me 2TB for 3 x 1TB.

    Will probably test it this week end and compare performance just for science :)

    Broke down and updated to 10.... Took a couple pics of the setup while it was doing it's thing. Picture quality isn't the best, but...I never claimed to be a photographer.

    Nice! Fresh install or upgrade from 7/8?

    By the way, out of curiosity, do you have your GPU's in Slot 1 and 3?

    Just one at the moment. I sold the 2 x 970s, and am running a 290X between upgrades. Figured it'd be a fun toy to play with while I waited.

    Updating from 8 to 10.
