Clean looking build. Marco send it here and I'll do the re-burn-in for it. (you know, the two year test?)

The cable management is superb inside that box. And it will not be long before it is in your hot hardware hands RRplay. congrats again.

Thanks Omega ! no doubt I 'll be seeing some of the finer aspects of supremo cable management pretty soon and hopefully be able to share all that good ol Marco magic with all of you .

As for that 3TB storage drive ...really thankful ! cuz  'size does matter' 

&  the pri$es these days of HDDs are rather stiff   Wink

That system rrplay won was a sweet system, seeing it built up front is even sweeter.

I can truly appreciate Dave's craftsmanship with this system, everything is neatly tucked away, everything is installed in the proper order and everything looks pretty sweet. I can truly learn a few pointers from him to improve my system building craft, though I would of liked to see a bit more of the system building...

Anyway, HH thanks you Dave, you built a system that rrplay will truly appreciate; truly, truly appreciate.

If that's what you want to call it. I tend to think of it as a crazy HotHardware family... You must be still loopy from the pain meds. Btw hope you are healing fast.
