Description

Intel SSDs are in Raid0.

4 dimms of ram to take advantage of X99 quad channel.

Mellanox ConnectX-2 to allow a direct 10 gigabit link to my server, onboard gigabit still used to connect to regular network.

3x Corsair ML140 Pro (1 Exhaust at rear, 2 Intake at front to maintain positive pressure). Connected to NZXT Grid+ V2 with custom profile linked to GPU temperature, silence is a priority. CPU fans are connected directly to motherboard header via a Noctua splitter.

I got a similar build. Love the noctua fans.

What kinda idle/load temps do you get with the fan? (ambient temps too please)

Pretty good, doesn't get over around 65C under load.

Are you actually running that ram at 3200?

Yes I am, I have XMP turned on in the BIOS.
