Yes, no graphics card. This is a photoshop PC.
The ram originally had blue heatsinks. I de-anodized them and sprayed them white, first applying one coat of primer. The only build issue I had was the board not booting with four sticks. I inserted one stick, booted to BIOS, set the XMP profile and then installed the other three sticks. Booted fine.
The braided cables are from BitFenix.
I upgraded the SSD from an Intel 120GB 330. Didn't notice any difference in day-to-day use, but the benchmark scores are much better. I wanted to move my temp and scratch disks to the SSD, hence the need for 256GB. I switched to the Intel RST drivers from the standard MSAHCI ones and saw an increase in 4K reads/writes (not that I noticed though).
Swapped my 4x2TB WD green drives for 3TB red ones. Only one is inside the machine, the others are backups. Two in a RAID1 box and another is kept off-site.
Just upgraded my Dell 3008WFP to the new U3014. Calibrates very nicely with the i1 DisplayPro. I see the overdrive problems that people are reporting but they don't bother me. I don't have any games so I can't say if it affects them.
Everything but the CPU was running hot (in the 60's), so I decided to move things around a bit. I swapped out the H60 with the Intel heatsink that came with the processor. The H60 intake fan is now a Spectre 120 as an exhaust. The CM690 included front intake fan I changed to the Spectre 140mm. Finally, I removed the thermal armor of the Sabertooth. All my temps are now just below 40. The stock Intel fan runs only a few degrees higher then the H60. I suspect the main culprit was the thermal armor without the small fans. The two top fans in the photos are not running.
