Absolutely, mine is actually closed any time I'm not cleaning or taking pictures. Mostly likely, no one takes pictures with the door closed because the mesh keeps you from seeing the inside components. Here's an old shot from another angle that might make it easier to see that there's clearance.
This isn't my video, but DudeRandom is running a system almost identical to mine in this video and our performance is very close to each other (I tend to have slightly higher frames than him).
Basically, over 100fps at 4K most of the time. But I tend to play 1440p most of the time for the increased fluidity.
It worked very well with the exception that the 980 Tis being sandwiched this close with backplates installed meant the top GPU was starved for fresh air. Overclocking the GPUs was out of the question due to thermals. But with one GPU that wasn't a problem and the system crushed everything thrown at it. The i7 860 is still a capable CPU in all but the most CPU intensive games where it bottlenecks a bit.
Thank you. Also, that is a SLICK Threadripper build you posted.
This is a dope build and...WHOA look at the size of that CPU!

The airflow is great. Each glass side panel is actually offset from the case by about half an inch all around in addition to the ventilation on the bottom side. The case has a raised design on the bottom that puts the bottom ventilation surface about two inches from whatever you're setting it on. Basically, there are openings for flow on every side of the case despite the tempered glass design and the dust filters. I've been moving TB's of data for days now uninterrupted, CPU temp is 30C.
Non. J'ai payé 800$ chacun.
I'm currently idling at 39C. Under load during standard AAA gameplay (something taxing like Wildlands, The Division, etc.) I hover in the 60's to mid 70's after hours of play. Stress testing I can push into the low 80's if I keep the GPUs under 100% load for an extended period of time.
This is all with the standard automatic fan controls. I haven't made a custom curve because the temps/noise have been acceptable to me on default.
If you think that looks silly, by no means should you look at the other build I posted (7 drives, over 20TB total). :D
Originally (as in before this weekend) he had a 250GB and a 500GB, but both were full and he kept deleting games and redownloading. I just added the two 1TB drives so he could go a little longer without having to swap games.
To be fair, I just put the 980 Tis in there this weekend and the 1000W PSU. That's why those are the only clean things in there, LOL.
I can dig it.
All of it.
Does the new baby in a few weeks count? :D
I'm waiting to see if a 1080 Ti will show up and I'm contemplating switching to a mechanical keyboard.
Yeah. I said I was done after the GTX 980 Ti's came out...then came more storage...then more memory...then a 1440p G-sync monitor...then a new wireless mouse...
Just added some interior shots. Don't mind the dust.

If you're talking about the martial arts video(s) on my YouTube page I'm the one demonstrating/talking. I do have a PS4 and use the controller on some games with native support (or DS4Windows if not).
All I backup are media, work files, and game saves on external drives. I don't backup actual games which takes up the majority of the space.
It's a constant struggle. I always say I'm done for a while, then two-three months down the road there I am adding/changing something again. It's never finished!
Yeah :( I need to. I started to add inside shots then realized all the ones I took were when I first built the machine with 8GB of GSkill memory, a GTX 780 Ti, and a GTX 460 for PhysX. I need to take some current shots.
Lots of movies, TV shows, and anime along with my entire Steam, Uplay, Origin, Gog, etc. libraries installed. Really don't like waiting to download something when I'm ready to experience it.
If I'm thinking correctly, LGA1151 is Skylake? If so, that launched at the end of 2015. This build was first put together in January of 2014 and revised from there.
