    - 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.
