The was a custom build for a friend who I had already built a rack mounted server to run media and such. I used a Norco, Technologies Case for the build and he wanted something that was exactly the same in the front when sitting in the rack just out of OCD reasons. So, I hooked him up with the plain version that had no hot swap drives in the front which left me with the ability to have two 120mm intake fans in the front. Initially I wanted to do some sort of 120mm AIO cooler but the way the fans mount to the removable drive cages in the front left me no choice but to use air cooling. Not a big deal but it would have been sweet to have the GTX 980 TI Hybrid card and a 120mm AIO which would have given this system some serious cooling overhead. The first cooler I chose for the system ended up not fitting so that is why you'll see a cooler from one of my mini ITX taking it's place while I got the system configured and while I was waiting for it's replacement which is the cooler that you'll see in the parts list. This is the first time I've tried out a Non- ASUS High end board and I must say I was impressed. I have a mini ITX ASROCK board which cooperates but is nothing special. I don't think there is a faster booting system from cold than this one having the sweet Samsung M.2 Nvme drive coupled with the ASROCK fastboot which is the fastest I've seen by far. It's impressive. Overall this system performs well and was a good break from the typical vertical tower builds.
