RE: i7 3930k Photoshop and Video Workstation Build
Looks like a fun build! Plan on quite a few days tho if you plan to OC. Smile

I remember I was super pumped to start OC'ing it until I realized I had to not play with my toy for roughly a month (Many a BSoD to get it stable, RAM testing, etc). But maybe that's just me and my luck. Wink

I use it for video and Photoshop, so the video definitely uses the power. Even Photoshop will use all six cores.

Now for the pictures of the finished setup! The scanner that I have is not in the picture as I have it on a cart and roll it under the desk until I need it. Notice the lack of a bunch of cables under the desk. I call that cat proofing if there is such a thing. Rolleyes

Got to love how the super wide angle lens distorts straight lines, but I was too lazy to Photoshop it prior to posting. Here is one more:

Well done! You've put a lot of work in that!

And now a question from a video editing illiterate:

"What does that "thing" covering the right monitor do exactly and why?

What kind of videos do you do? Are you a YouTuber of some kind?

The right monitor is a super wide gamut color monitor. There is a light directly above it. For accurate colors, you can install a hood to block such light. NEC makes a hood for the monitors I bought. That is what you see on the right monitor.

The monitor hoods allow the display colors to be realistic at realistic brightness. No reflections is a good thing in photo editing. Smile

As to video, it is just home video. I haven't posted anything to YouTube or publicly. I am mainly into Photography and photo editing.

Sweet. Smile. That makes sense though about accurate light.

RE: i7 3930k Photoshop and Video Workstation Build
I am actually most proud of the lack of cables on the floor. I used to have the old UPS on the floor so every power cord was under the desk. The Ethernet switch was on the bottom shelf under the printer and so there were Ethernet cables on the floor. That was a cat's paradise. Now the cats just walk under the desk and back out, LOL! They now have to find another way to torment me. Smile

When looking at the two monitors in the picture, you can see how the monitor with the hood's image looks better due to no light reflecting off of it.

I am now complete! The Logitech T650 just arrived and I have it setup. It is nice with Windows 8! The wireless receiver works with my Logitech Performance MX mouse too, which is sweet. Six devices can be paired with the receiver.

The computer runs really cool at stock speeds not getting over 30 Celcius!
