Hi everyone, its been many many years since i've used OCC, but its great to be back. I 've been using sager laptops for all my computing needs at work but now my business mandates a desktop that can render video/editing matters and have a HUGE amount of storage. As such, these are the specs:
-Processor: Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 Six-Core Desktop Processor
-RAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000)
-ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
-GPU: EVGAGeForce GTX680
-PSU: Thortech 1000Watt PSU
-HDD: OS drive 480gb SSD
-HDD: Storage: 8 x 3tb
-CASE: Xigmatek Elysium Black CCC-HSA0DS-U01 All Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Super Tower Computer Case
I really need some advice on how I can assemble my storage drives with this build; the case supports that many drives, and the PSU can power that many drives.. Do i need a raid controller now to build my raid (most likely raid 5 or 6)..?
Also, if you have any advice on what I can do better, please let me know. $$$ is not an issue.
