2 Questions:

Why 2 SSD's? (One scratch disk maybe?)

Do you need the extravagant motherboard?


It seems like a rad build though!

Overall 8.9/10 matey!

RAM prices kill me, knowing I got 32GB's of DDR3 1600MHz at € 240 in Q4 2014.


If you finished building it, would you mind providing some pictures? I'd love to see it in action and get some CompuPorn ;) 

When the PC is acting up haunted,

who ya gonna call?
"Monotone voice" : A local computer store.

*Terrible joke I know*
