X58 - Rough but running

Gonna try using the update functionality here and see how doing a build log goes Emoji

This is very much a Noctua/EVGA themed rig with a case from Corsair and some other bits and bobs. Mostly my attempt to make a top-tier X58 rig I'll never need to upgrade, but eeh we'll see how that turns out, since I could always add another GPU/move to new ones, or get faster RAM... :O

Also, if y'all have any suggestions on some cool gadget or anything to put in the 5.25" slots, fire away! I'd like to have something in there, but I already have a fan controller going behind the mobo, so other than a disk drive (which I wouldn't use all that much tbh, I can use my old MacBook Pro if I need to watch something off a disk) IDK what to put in there.
