    MB: Asus Rampage IV Extreme
    RAM: 32GB Mushkin Enhanced Redline DDR3-2133
    GPU: Dual EVGA GTX-590 Classified
    Storage: 2 Crucial C-300 SSDs, 4 WD C-Black 1TB, 2 drives in Hotswap

    Reservoir: Koolance RP-402x2
    Pumps: Dual Koolance PMP-400
    Radiators: 360MM Koolance and 240MM Coolermaster radiators
    Fan Control; Corsair Link for the radiators, built in case controller for everything else

    the GPUs are cooled through the 360MM rad, and the CPU through the 240MM rad, im using CM Blademaster PWM fans on the radiators, and they are controlled via the Link Commander, which automatically sets speeds based on the internal hardware temperature sensors

    Monitor: Dell 27" Ultrasharp 2711 2560x1440 IPS panel

    Audio:
    Xonar Xense soundcard with the Sennheiser PC-350s for gaming, the Dell sound bar is also plugged into the Xense for quieter external sound when needed
    Xonar Essence One (USB in/XLR out)
    Speakers: KRK Rokit 8 G2 Studio Monitors (XLR)
    Sub: KRK 10s (XLR)

    Accessories:
    KB: Ducky 9008 Shine Backlit Mechanical (MX Blacks, English with Chinese lettering keycaps)
    Mouse: Cyborg R.A.T. 9 (set at 5600 DPI)
    Mousepad: Razer Goliathus Speed

    Now all you need is a UPS to protect all that from power fluctuation!

    Yeah, I've done so. Before this build the last time I built a computer was about 3 years ago, so I easily forgot. So thanks to Cyanotical for the tip, and yours.

    Did that radiator come with a fan shroud by the way or what's that? And aren't you getting your neck hurt with a big screen like that at that position?

    Well finally he posted some good pictures, got the One, the Rokits, ahhh too gorgeous!

    I'll be with you Prixie on having cheap-looking setups! :P

    I'll be honest though - I'm thinking about perhaps getting some KRK Rokit 5 monitors to put on either side of my drumset, since they would be enough... just $300 is a lot to part with right now.

    Afaik the good ones will protect you from lightning aswell, fe. if lightning would strike on your powerline anything connected to it will be destroyed, i'm no electricity expert, but afaik they should do that.

    Yup most decent PSU's have a damn good circuit breaker. But since peripherals tend to need seperate power, it's good to have them on a decent power board.

    nothing protects from a direct lightning strike, (like a strike on the power line outside your house) but where i live all power, cable, and phone lines are underground, only high power transmission lines from power plants are open, but they are not grounded so lighting will strike the tower, but not the line itself, and if it does strike the line, a transformer would blow first, long before it ever reaches a house, if you are really worried about your computer, get some form of insurance

    also, from what i've read, an UPS causes a good amount of interference on powered studio monitors like the RP8s

    if you are willing to part with $300, why not save up for a bit longer and get the Rokit8s, because eventually you are gonna want to get them or something similar anyway

    also, i forgot a pic :P

    Cooler Master MegaFlows it looks like (which are awesome fans)... but I did notice that Newegg didn't have any last time I checked.

    BitFenix also makes some 200mm with LED's but will cost you a good bit more.
