So, I'm stuck with a box full of Koolance nickel fittings and approx 8 QD3s, both male and female ends, and like I mentioned, I have no idea what to do with this now since obviously my 30 day return policy is long gone. I still have 2 boxes full of fans from previous builds, an Asus X99 Deluxe MB, and a half completed paint job on a Little Devil PC-V8. I thought about keeping these things in case I wanted to build another, but I need to finish this one first. By the time it's done, the MB will be obsolete, What am I supposed to do with all these things? It's really starting to making my office look junky, and the Feds are coming Jan 16th for an audit of my company, so everything needs to at least look orderly.

Are those parts a cost of doing business?

What did or didn't you do to get an audit? I know home base business are red flags just jumping in the IRS face, saying look at me, look at me. Just make sure you have all your supporting documentation that shows how you segregate your business space from your personal space. It's always best to have a separate part of the house as your business that's literally cutoff from personal living space, literally with a separate entrance.

Anyway, I know the feeling of having extras and can't return them. I think I will be able to use some of my stuff in this new build.

Good luck.

It's not an IRS audit, it's an SEC audit. Every 2 years they have to come in and check our record keeping for all of our clients, look at their investments to decide if we're managing them appropriately based off of their financial info, etc. We have to keep all records a correspondence for 8 years, but that's only for unaccredited investors. Accredited investors in our performance based fee hedge fund doesn’t fall under SEC regulation.

So it's an audit that's needed every 2 years. If the place is junky and unorganized, they might spend more time than usual trying to find anything to fine us for.

Not sure if you guys saw, Linus is doing a build with a CL case, an S8 I believe. It's interesting because he usually does builds with pos cases, but now he will have a nice case!

I thinks its for their CES 2016 project. It has 28 cores, 256GB DDR4, 7x R9 Nano, 8TB SSD storage. Check Linus' twitter page (I'm not sure if i'm allowed to post the link). There will be a video coming soon.

Yeah, I agree, it's always best to have things neat and in order. I am an Auditor and I will look a bit closer if things are messy.

A number of people use an external USB optical drive for when they need to install something from a compact disc or did, that way it can be removed when not in use.

As for fan controllers, a wide variety of people use the Aquaero 5/6 (also available in pro and XT versions) which features a screen and the possibility of remote control (or setup and control via usb). Ek is coming out with the SignalKuppe at some point, although so far has been only teased, but apparently will be even more flexible and can be used in a setup where a screen is not required (Aquaero 6 at this time (the latest version) is only available with a screen).

I figured most folks did not do it for aesthetics and, as you stated, the use of USBs. I also was thinking along the lines of what you stated about using a USB optical drive to install things via disk when needed or just plug it in when needed. That most likely will be what I do.

Thanks for the feedback.
