Meet Synth-Studio Tower!

I finished building my newest PC a little while ago.  Just the other day (at time of writing) I replaced the motherboard due to a bug in the Intel Sandy Bridge motherboard chipset Serial ATA Controller with it’s new, bug-free version.

Long ago, for the first time, I built my own PC.  Then, I built another.  Then another, and another.  This is one of them.

Surprisingly, that went through with zero issues I’m happy to report!  I thought at least I would have to re-create my RAID 10 array, and re-image the machine from a backup.  However, it found my array and booted right up!  Way to go Intel/Asus!

I decided to take some photos of it, they came out alright, as the lighting in my room is not great.  Check them out below.

What, you don’t want to look at stupid pictures you’re a computer expert?  What are “specs”?  Why do you want to know about what kind of glasses I have???
