    Got my new keyboard today. ^^
    Microsoft Sidwinder X4
    I love it, but I need to get used to it. Whenever I go to press control, I hit my macro six key... Not sure how. The keys feel great, it sounds great, it actually reminds me a bit of a mechanical keyboard because of the resistance of the keys. It just feels plain nice in general. A+. x3 I'll post some pictures of my conflicting-led setup here sometime. (I have a blue light on my Fiio E9, a blue light on my USB Wireless, red lighting on my mouse, and red lighting on my keyboard.)

    @Spasx :
    The Kabuto is terrible, the edges are going to fold up on you here after about a month of use. (I have one.) You should have skipped the Megladon and gone for a better stereo setup imo. Either way, this isn't a critique thread, just thought I'd weigh in on the mouse pad.

    Case- Coolermaster HAF 932 Full Tower
    PSU- Antec Signature 650W
    OS- Windows 7x64
    Mobo- Gigabyte EP45-DS3L LGA775
    CPU- Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 12meg L2 cache
    Heat Sink- Scythe Infinity (Now Mugen)
    RAM- Transcend 2x2GB DDR2 800mhz
    GPU- Sapphire HD5850 1gb
    HD 1- Samsung 160gb SATA II
    HD 2 - WD 320gb SATA II
    DVD- LG CD/DVD Writer
    Keyboard- Quantum Mini
    Monitor 1- ACER S201HL LED 20" 1600x900
    Mouse- Microsoft Sidewinder X5
    Pad- old and much recycled
    Speakers- Logitech stereo with sub

    Have had the HAF932 since their release and to all those reviewers who "assumed" they would be dusty because of lack of filters they were so wrong .... despite me living in an old dusty house have only had to clean inside once in 2 yrs and that was mainly just for appearances. Goes to show how wrong assumptions can be based on opinions only.

    I would much appreciate it if someone were to point me towards a Cosmos 2 vs Elysium pic/video.

    Cosmos II is 704mm tall, while the Elysium is "merely" 618. Apparently.

    I recently got the X4 aswell. It's a nice feeling keyboard, and I seem to have issues with some of the keys right now, but it will be natural overtime I suspect.

    This is my relative new setup as my old computer died last summer. And yes this is my first post so ... Ahoy folks.

    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P, Socket-1155
    ATX, Z68, DDR3, 2xPCIe(2.0)x16, CFX&SLI, SATA 6Gb

    Memory: Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 16GB
    Kit w/4X HyperX 4GB DDR3, CL9-9-9-27, 240pin

    PSU: Intel® Core i7-2600K Processor
    Socket-LGA1155, Quad Core, 3.4Ghz, 8MB, 95W, Boxed

    Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Big Tower
    Fans: 1x 230mm Front, 1x 230mm Topp, 1x 230mm

    HDD: Western Digital Caviar® Black 750GB
    SATA 6Gb/s (SATA 3.0), 64MB Cache, 7200RPM, 3,5"

    CPU cooler: Antec Kuhler H2O 920 CPU Cooler
    Socket 775/1155/1156/1366, AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+, 700~

    GPU: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 570 1280MB PhysX CUDA
    PCI-Express 2.0, "Synergy Edition", GDDR5, 2xDVI

    PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro M850 850W PSU
    ATX 12V V2.3, 80 Plus Bronze, Modular, 6x 6+2pin

    Keyboard: Logitech G19

    Mouse : Logitech G500

    Headphones: Logitech G35

    Screen: LG LY95 37"

    Currently it works like a charm ... CPU doesn't pass 33 degrees celcius under hard gaming and GPU is around 50-55 degrees celsius or so.

    Got a soundsystem that is relatively old but works like a charm aswell.

    Front Speakers : Proson Stadium 10 Black
    Center Speaker : Proson Stadium CS-5 v.2 Black
    Back Speakers : Proson Stadium Monitor 6
    SubWoofer : JBL ES250PWCH 12"
    Reciver : harman/kardon AVR 235 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel

    Think that's about it.

    I know the kabuto isn't the best mousepad, but I don't have the room on my desk or the money to get a new one. this is my second one in the past year and I clean them every month or so my last one got kind of bad after about 9-11 months. and I dont wanna speaker setup cause im in skype 80% of the day while playing fps's so I like how you can switch between 7.1 and 2.1 and plus the megalodon is hella comfy =D

    Pretty sure it was approximately £350 which should be around $500, slight difference I agree however the price isn't bad at all and when i said "go for it" I meant it.

    No, it will be $350.

    Although non-Americans may find the price higher due to poor mix with currencies, as well as taxes, etc. For example: Here in Norway I do have to spend 500 bucks.

    As with all computer hardware. Nothing new really. I find the pricetag of ~3400 SEK very reasonable considering the case.

    Anyway, I'm obliged to tell everyone that this isn't the proper thread to discuss new cases; if you feel you want to further discuss the Cosmos II (or any other case) I suggest you create a new thread. Thanks!

    Well, this is proof I'm horrible at taking pictures, but I just put this together for a friend.

    MOBO - MSi P67A C43 (I had a replacement sent to me, and I upgraded myself to a Z68, so he got it from me for $40.00)
    RAM - salvaged from old system - 2X2 GB 1333 MHz
    HDD - salvaged - 760 GB 7200 RPM Hitachi
    CPU - i5 2500k
    GPU - Twin Frozr 560 Ti
    PSU - PC Power and Cooling 760W 80+ silver Silencer - got this on sale for $79.99 after rebate.
    Case - HAF 912
    DVD - salvaged - some generic burner

    The intent is to add an aftermarket cooler (A70) sometime in the near future, should he decide to OC the 2500k (he will eventually)

    The above illustrates well why I never want to work in a midtower case - especially with a non-modular PSU ever again. :>

    Thanks for the demonstration dear Uggor.

    Yeah, no problem lol. The wiring we ended up with wasn't bad at all, I think. Could have been much worse. That particular PSU is heavy as balls, too. Glad I picked myself up one for when I upgrade to the 6 series :-p

    Isn't PC Power and Cooling that one company that's a branch of OCZ or am I thinking of another Psomething brand? O.o Power PC or something?
