x79 Little Beast

This is my Linux PC. I'm keeping to test and check up on progress of gaming on Linux. It currently has Pop, Ubuntu, and Arch install. I also have a VB of windows on pop for the games that just wont run. The one thing I really like about it are these Asian Horse fans in red. they come in some pretty cool colors and just pop. The case made by XPG is a great case. It has plenty of room, max airflow, magnetic front panel, affordable, and a really great lay out.
Case: XPG defender mid-tower
Fans: Asian Horse fs-9001 (three pack, can be controlled by supported board or remote)
Soon to have a aidi64 display and maybe some cable extensions
