    It will be used for my schoolwork, and I use it for isotopes and imaging when I take work home with me. However, this is my personal workstation. It is also where I do email, come to this forum, and play the occasional game (with the nude-raider patch).
    Its replacing my very similar prior build:

    supermicro X10DRG-Q (bios 3.0a pre microcode update)
    dual e5-2699 v4
    1tb ram
    dual 960pro raid (amfeltec)
    4x Titan V
    10x ssd raid
    custom case
    Ms datacenter 2016 (as a workstation)


    anyhow, here is the new rig for size comparison to my desk and chair

    thats interesting. I wonder if the difference is airflow. IE server case has lots of air being pushed, while your case most likely doesnt come close to the same volume.

    Maybe, it’s basically silent. It does (obviously) not trap any heat

    I hate you...

    Will you adopt me?

    That thing is mindblowing. I'd have to take out a second mortgage.

    Thank you. Believe it or not, this rig was my most painful build to date. Little details that had to all be addressed.
