    Long-time reader of this thread, but now first time poster! I have some questions for you guys out there about cases, more specifically the Silverstone FT02 case. I've been a big fan of it's design since the first time I saw it, and I was wondering what people's opinion on it is? And for the one's who has it, are you satisfied? Was it hard to build in?

    FT02 Album Here

    All of the images with a black computer case are of the FT02

    I liked it a lot, the only thing i didn't like was routing the power cables to the video card

    I am planning on getting a studio desk because my current one is too small to keep all my stuff on, so space won't be an issue. Studio desks have two layers, so I will be able to keep my speakers elevated and next to my monitor, while things like my keyboard, mouse, joystick and record player will remain on the main level of the desk. Space is not a big concern, I have seen the KRK Rokker 5's sitting on the desk with a 27 inch iMac inbetween them and there was enough room.

    I have listened to music through both the KRK 5's and the 8's, both sound great without an asinine amount of bass.

    Honestly I'll probably end up getting the Adam Audio A3Xs because of their smaller size, maybe the 5s. The 7s would be a dream and would do better on either side of my drumset.

    Computer related frustration of the week: Updated the motherboard bios because of promises of it being better and my AISuite bugging me every couple of days, now I get to redo my overclock. But not now, maybe at the weekend.

    Yea, some BIOS updates will indeed reset overclocks, thankfully you already know the voltages that you need.

    I thought I might try the offset voltage regulation, see if I can get better/lower. I couldn't get it below 1.32 in bios without it crashing before an hour of P95 was up with setting a manual voltage and I am very jealous of Protput's 1.28V vCore :/

    Just got to find out how the damn off-set thing works...the "guide" pdf thing on overclockers tells you what all the options do (kind of) but doesn't seem to tell me how to use them :< Oh, and any Z77 Sabertooth OC guides use a 3570K

    Hmm. What sort of world-changing overclocking options does Z77 sabertooth have over P67 sabertooth? As far as I know almost all BIOS options should look almost the same in Asus's bios.

    In other news, had to do a full clean removal of my 301.42(whql) drivers because it was causing GPU usage in WoW to fluctuate erratically between 50% and 100% resulting in unplayable framerates. First time I've run into issues with nVidia drivers (in my short experience). Back to trusty 296.10 drivers now, nice and stable

    'Tis a solid roomy case with decent features, quite popular with a LOT of builders

    Hmm.

    INDEED IT IS GOOD SIR. THANKS FOR POINTING OUT.

    I'M SURE THE MODS WILL ALLOW 24 HOURS OF CAPSLOCK MOTHERFUCKERY TO COMMENCE ON THE MORE "FORMAL" PARTS OF THESE FORUMS.

    edit: MMO-C WON'T LET YOU DRAFT ENTIRE POSTS IN CAPS SO YOU NEED TO HAVE SOMETHING IN LOWER CASE. LAME.

    Bahahaha.

    You didn't know that already? Websites have been doing things like that for years.

    A site I frequent doesn't because the admin SOMETIMES LIKES TO SHOUT!

    That setting also screws with smilie-only posts.

I gave him the address and we hung up.

    Minutes later he phoned back and said that it didn't work. Something about HTP - he had also attempted different spellings. I gave him my colleges e-mail adress assuming that it was just an issue with my e-mail and I knew that his worked. We hung up yet again, but he phoned back just minutes later.

    It turned out that he had attempted to put my e-mail in the adress-field in his browser, attempting both [email protected] and http://[email protected] without luck.

    Oy vey.

    There was something about it on the main page, they were doing some sort of back-end maintenance about an hour ago, looks like it borked some of the layout.
