    I don't see the brand/type of the keyboard. I don't like mechanical keyboards without the plastic that you put your palms. That said, yours is truly nice.

    Nice looking rig , now i maybe wrong here but the other day i tried out the cooler master PSU calculator and it said that with overclocking i needed a 1200w PSU which i have , maybe the 1000w PSU in this build isn't enough for a setup like this .

    try it for yourself ,,,, http://www.coolermaster.com/power-supply-calculator/

    It's very nicely done, well-built, good hardware, looks great, etc, but... and I hate being that guy... this seems a bit boring for ROTM. This just doesn't feel very unique or personal to me. It's kind of like a Ferrari - nobody doubts that they're fast, sleek, and well-built. Some people might do a custom paint job or swap out the sound system, but otherwise most people just leave them alone, because why tamper with something that's already great? Then there are cars like DeLoreans or a Subaru WRX modified to be track-ready, both of which are inferior vehicles. When people see the Ferrari they think "I wonder how much money that guy makes" but when they see the DMC-12 or modified WRX, enthusiasts are interested to see more and the time and effort put in is respectable.

    I'm sure some of you may disagree, but the way I see it, entering a Ferrari in a competition about style kind of defeats the purpose of the competition.

    I get what you're saying, but this is still different. You don't build a Ferrari like you do this a PC. :D

    Believe me man. 1000W is really enough! PSU makers always offer the most expandable solution. i have seen 4-way SLI working with 1200W PSU smoothly.

    this thing aside.

    Where are the cables?! extremely clean system :thumbup:

    Really, really Nice rig - A question.

    I want to congradulate you on your work. Lots of attention to detail and I really dont see where you hid the drives, which brings up another question. With 4 drives total:2 ssd's and 2 spinning, what setup did you choose? I am pretty sure that you used one ssd for the boot and one spinning for media and other files. What did you do with the other 2. Did you raid anything? I am always inerested in the solutions that folks find when they use multiple drives in a build. You may have decided on a setup that I may want to emulate. For now, I am thinking 4 drives also: 2 ssd's raided, 1 for backup and one for media. What setup did you choose.
    thanx.

    maybe using them for cache of the HDD's ? I use intel RST to setup my SSD as an fast cache drive for the 1 TB HDD I have all my games installed on.
