    I'm assuming the PSU was not sleeved by you then.

    Buy a starter sleeving kit, that's what I did. You will get acceptable stuff for a small sum of cash; i.e. proper tools, alright heatshrink and black sleeve. For any serious sleeving I'd point towards MDPC-X: http://de.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve.htm. Nils offers some of the best and highest grade/quality stuff on the market for sleevers. He demands and only offers perfection.

    Nah, I bought one of Corsair's sleeve-kits, which is kinda why I wanna do the other cables so that they match.

    Wish I had gone for modular PSU instead of the Antec Earthwatts one, everything is so cramped on my Node 605, the exhaust fan is almost blocked with all of the cables & HDD's, I had to turn my PSU upside down to make it to another exhaust :P

    Well my life has felt pretty stagnant lately. Not really making the money I want to so I've decided to go back for a 2nd bachelor's, but this time in Computer Science.

    Keeping in mind the fact that Ivy Bridge micro-architecture is not considerably faster than the Sandy Bridge, the Intel Core i7-4800/4900 processors will not be able to provide substantially higher performance than the existing Intel Core i7-3800/3900 chips
    While probably true, this is a foolish assumption to make without actually testing it; It could be Ivy Bridge-E in name only to keep true to the naming schemes.

    Yeah, I don't see how you can read that much into numbers. The first round of bulldozers were excellent on paper and rather shit when tested.

    Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Set is 50% off with promo code APRILFOOLS50

    You have to have a registered account with Astro (you can make one) and apply the promo code at the shopping cart. I was skeptical too but mine are on order now! $164.24 after taxes

    That is...still pretty steep. How do they compare to a quality set of stereo cans?

    Can't tell you, I'm not an audiophile, but like I've always touted in the past, they are the most comfortable set of headphones I've ever worn and the mic quality is top-notch. Sound is perfectly fine for someone who's not wanting recording-studio quality headphones, I've never had any complaints about music with them.

    But the comfort...so good

    It isn't beige, it is a light cream colour. And thus wouldn't look out of place in any office space or living room. I think they'd actually sell some if they put it into production.

    Probably, I dont however remember changing the language, and I know no-one else has been on the PC, which is why I thought it might be related to a specific date.

    Edit: It was infact just changed, I still dunno how or who did it.
