RE: i7 3930k Photoshop and Video Workstation Build
It is together and it absolutely flies! I set up a 16 GB ram disk and pointed my web browser to it. Now the internet flies as well.

I need help moving my desk around before I set this PC up, so I had been using my prior PCs monitor to set up windows. I haven't installed any software yet other than Windows 8.

Here are a couple of pictures. Wire management is about as good as I can get it due to so many drives.

I will post more pictures when I get everything set up on the desk the way I want it.

I turned the upper drive cage so that air from the fan would not be restricted since I have no drives in it.

The super wide angle lens I have on my camera currently definitely distorts the images a little without Photoshopping them.

Looks great! Man, that CPU Cooler sure dwarfs that video card haha.

Are you going to overclock the CPU?

Maybe, but I usually don't overclock. The cooler covers all the Ram too. Pictures tomorrow of it setup on my desk.
