Popped in the big-ass video card and a 700W PS and this thing fired up on the first try. The wiring barely fits inside the case, but that might only be an issue if I slap a few more hard drives inside. It looks like a RAID5 array was an option from the factory, so I may toss in a few of the 500GB or 1TB drives I have piling up around here into an array.
Updates and drivers are currently being downloaded, but even in the few short minutes I’ve used this unoptimized system it feels incredibly speedy. I think I’m going to like this thing.
