    It should be quick.
    Oops, sorry, my mistake , I didn't read whole specs carefully.

    From the pics, those look like MX200's, so in RAID 0, you'd get what? 1GBps Sequential Read? Flippin' awesome for sure. Nearly 2TB of >1GBps storage! Love it.

    I can't imagine a pair of those Samsung 950's in the same configuration. Crazy fast, although I bet you'd need X99 to do it...I'm not sure there'd be enough PCIE lanes on Z170 to pull it off.

    You guys are making me envious...lol

    Some of this stuff may migrate to my X99 build if I ever get the CPU for it. i7-5960X is a lot of green. ($939.00 is the best price I can find it for)

    So who knows when it will be?,.......

    Dang Smiki, that's sweet!

    Neil, we'll definitely have to hit X99 (or X199?) to make Striping on the NVMe drives work. Check out the section on PCIE lanes in this article: Everything We Know About Intel's Skylake Platform - Tom's Hardware HSIO really limits Z170 to less than 20 Lanes of PCIe as I read this article. Trying to SLI & have RAIDed NVME while still having Gig-E and USB 3.X...would make Z170 Scream and probably die. <sigh>. Of course, with the cost of NVME drives right now, it probably doesn't matter. Even if I upgrade my machine this year, I can't see RAIDed NVME drives in my future...<grin>.

    Intel could implement a lot more features on Skylake boards, but they want to soak us for X99 prices.
    I'm waiting to buy an X99 CPU, and twice I've had enough set back to get one, but not the top of the line.

    Then, I end up spending it on something else for my other computers.
    I have everything here to build the X99 except for the CPU. I'm getting tired of waiting.

    very nice, I am about to drop one of my builds into the Core X9 also, the Corsair 750D isn't cutting anymore in terms of fitting my water cooling items.

    You'll not regret to doing it.

    I am hoping so, I was debating on dropping the build into my Mountain Mods case, but I needed another Radiator to fit which is why I picked up the Core X9 instead. I will be running 3x 360mm.
    I added some upgrades to my X99 build which is another reason why I wanted to change cases.

    new items I am adding, 2x Alphacool ST30 360 rads
    EK Full MB and CPU block
    2nd D5 pump
    Ew XSPC Res

    and other misc things.

    You can easily install all of that with no problem at all. As you've seen (pics of my RIG), I have installed 2x 360mm rads on top and one 240mm rad in front (sacrificing 1 front HDD cage, using other 2 for fan controller and OC panel). If you don't need 3 front hdd cages you can install the 360mm rad in front without the problem and still you'll have 2 more places (left / right side of X9), for 360/480mm rads. The only thing I'd to add was an additional plate to cover the empty space between the mobo and front side using it to fix my two D5 pumps (pretty clever ). Overall I have installed 2 360mm rads, 1 240mm Rad, 2 D5 pums, 2 150mm res, and still have a place for one microwave + one coffeemaker

    Yea, thats the reason I picked up the X9, plus is was also the only case that can fit under my desk with all this hardware.
    I plan on using all 3 5.25" bays, one for Bluray burner and 2 for my XSPC Res that houses my 2x D5 pumps.
    2x360 at the top like you have, one 360 on the side. The other side I am going to use all the HD space. total of 6HDD 4xSSD, I also have 1 SSD in PCIe slot 4. PCIe slot 1-3 is holding my GTX780 Classy.
    I think I am going to pretty much fill this entire case up. My 750D was pretty damn full at it was.
    I do like the caster you put on, I am going to have to go find some casters for this case also.
