    Random Murderer, this controller - my own project. I'm selling some DIY-kits on overclockers.ua, but I send only to Ukraine/Russia.

    Very cool build.

    Just so you know there are WD red drives sold OEM that are the same as the vraptors while lacking a heatsink. Should work in your application.

    Thansk you for sharing this! It is better "designed" and "executed" than most boxes from big brands.

    Gotcha thats cool. I am thinking of getting a major (Bachelors/USA) in Engineering even though I have a business background. Would like to start my own business and I need a more technical background than an MBA. Thinking Mechanical. I have enough of a math background to probably compress it down to only 2 years idk.

    I was educated in the Soviet Union (1985-1989).
    In the 90's I was a dealer in a casino, then served the slot machines, then repaired the computer equipment ...
    This is a normal career for almost any Soviet engineer )))

    Is that so the card works properly with the PCI-e extension?

    HD7950 worked absolutely normal with 2500k and long riser.
    But sometimes are BSODs, because voltage after riser is 11,7 volt.
    So, i added short fat wire for voltage boost.

    The old "quick and dirty" PCB for LCD was replaced by "tiny and glamour" :)
