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.
