Yes, that's a 512GB SSD and here you can see the two 4TB drives listed as 8TB (this was setup per the customer's specific request)







The touchscreen panel/front...

Spanned per customer request. Despite the over the top parts this is a htpc and not a pc first and foremost.

Not sure. But the space is there and its lightning quick.

Speaking of SATA cables I've been using these on recent builds.

I know they are all the same transfer rate. But I use them to tidy up the case and they are much easier to work with.

Thats a beastly htpc either way. I'm sure it cost a pretty penny.

No worries I didn't except you to.

What'd you use to organize the sata cables like that? Very nice.

Hope that customer knows that a single drive failure will result in a loss of all 8tb of data....

Of course. It's not how I would use that 8tb but it's also not my personal htpc.

He had some very specific requests. A spanned drive was one of them.

Good call on those. The ones that came with my mobo was bent up the wrong way which made it completely useless for my build. I had to dig up some cables I had leftover from an old build but it didn't look nearly as clean.

Gotta make the customer happy....even if they are wrong.

I guess the case is an OrigenAE S21T.If so that's a nice case with a not so nice $1,200 price tag.

Surprised it took this long for someone to notice.

If that case uses iMon for the screen software then they would have to pay me $1,200 to use it. Say hello to HDMI handshake issues.

I don't mind paying a little extra here or there for some nicer components, but $1200 for a case is so far out of my league, I wouldn't even recognize it if it were right in front of me. Heck, even $300 for a spectacular case would be too much of a stretch for me to justify.

WOW- NICE !!

Looking pretty slick.

512GB SSD's are indeed lightning quick.

if your accustomed to using a plain crappy 64MB cheapo that are common under $100 bucks nowadays... You should notice a difference for sure. A top Tier 512SSD is a different animal for sure.

Bigger the SSD the faster they are.

I like. I like. I like.

Excess wins.

64MB isn't going to get you too far either, that's like two or three raw photos from my camera.
