Following are photographs of the system build:
unpackaged for the first time. it just looks cool.
This is a closeup of the CPU with cooling fan installed.
everything installed in the rack-mount case. ready to start installing the software.
This is a new type of solid state drive (SSD) called the M.2.
It's basically a hard drive
on a stick lol. The interface is a lot faster than the platter type. Ridiculously easy to install.
I think there was room for two more of these on the motherboard. I am using this one
for the operating system (Windows 10 Pro) and all the applications related to the studio.
