    Old news perhaps but I just noticed; Yay!

    Now I'll just have to wait that the retailers pick up on it.

    Seconded

    And multi-GPU setups haven't *required* extra side ventilation for some time now (480 SLI was the last), just a decent front or bottom intake is enough.

    And the fractal design's solution is sleek! In my opinion anyway..

    I like windows, but personally it doesn't bother me one way or the other per se. As long as they don't try the halfway solution that winds up being completely ass. (Vengeance C70 being a prime example of a bad window.)

    As long as they don't put a bloody fan mount over the graphics card(s) because the way that drilled perspex refracts light means taht the windows is totally opaque right there, which completely negates the point of a bloody case window.

    I generally like windows too, but only when it's done right.

    There's people who get a tower with a window only to have a complete cable-mess to show, with tacky LEDs spread around the interior. Then there's people who spend tons of time on cable management, setting up a watercooling loop, ordering custom back-plates and/or other components, colour-matching parts, etc. Those builds warrant a window to show the excellent work, however I don't find a window to be necessarily required either. It's up to the end user.

    I would actually have to consider if I really needed the window if it wasn't for the iffy powder coating on my current door which needs replacing. At one spot it attracts dust and skin from hands and looks constantly dirty. :S

    It wasn't until recently that I changed my opinion about windows actually. I was against them to the point when I upgraded my setup and now it looks so pretty that I sometimes leave the door open just for admiration.

    You have a very neat thing going on there, no worries in my opinion. :P I just ordered six of those air flow series fans actually. And received my new screen for test use! o_o

    Does a new screen warrant a set of new pictures in the post your setup? :>

    It's less of a "post your gaming setup" thread and more of "post some goddamn pics for people to gawk at" thread :P
    So yeah, if you have pics of anything computer-related then of course it warrants a post

    The ones that are kind of annoying are 1-line posts of someone saying "getting a new gpu soon, will post pics." I mean what the hell, it's great they're getting a new gpu but posts like that could almost be considered spam.
    It's like me saying "Getting gtx 780 next year, will post pics." Means nothing o_O

    Soo...since when do you not need to restart the computer when updating your graphics card driver? Just updated from 12.6 to 12.8 and it didn't need to reboot (I did a reboot anyway).

    Now that I think about it, I don't remember restarting for the last couple driver updates.
