    great case but next time i think ill pick a case with a fan filter on the side panel. i used some window screen i got from the hardware store to help cut down on the dust, but im still having to clean out the case pretty often. the window screen just isnt fine enough.

    Core i5 760 @ 4.2 ghz cooled with a Noctua nh-d14
    Gigabyte p55a-ud3p
    Gskill 8gb DDR3 ram @ 1600 4gbx2
    Gigabyte ATI 5870 1gb @ 900mhz
    120gb Agility 2 SSD x2 one for OS and programs the other for games
    500gb WD black

    Creative 2.1 speakers
    Alienware 23" optx monitor 120hz.... for the buttery smooth frame rates not 3d
    cheapo wireless Microsoft comfort keyboard
    Raaer Naga mouse
    And you put all of that on a Thermaltake TR2 made by compucase (according to the UL number). I feel sorry for your equipment because other than that power supply the setup is really good.

    Anyways, my specs:

    CPU - Intel Xeon W3520, OC 3.9 GHz
    MB - Asus Rampage III Formula
    RAM - 6 GB Kingston HyperX 1860 MHz (1800 modules)
    HDD - Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB (don't need SSD or much storage)
    Graphics - HIS Radeon HD 4890 (waiting for either 69xx or 7000 series)
    PSU - Seasonic X650
    CPU cooling - Corsair H50 (modified with dual Gentletyphoon AP15's)
    Case - Coolermaster HAF 922

    Lots of people using HAF cases. Anyone else use a 900? :s

    Here's my work computer! It's pretty much built like a gaming system oddly enough:

    Antec 900 Case
    Intel Core i5 750 @ 3.4ghz on stock intel cooler w/ Arctic Silver 5 paste (It's REALLY cold in this plant most of the year. Thing only hits 60c under load.)
    Asus P7P55D-LE
    4GB G.Skill DDR3-1333
    ATi Radeon HD 4870 1GB
    500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue
    250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10
    550W Antec Earthwatts PSU
    Some crappy LG DVD-RW

    21.5" Samsung 2243 LCD
    Razer Deathadder (surprisingly the precision controls work wonders for messing with vector art)
    Some $10 Logitech keyboard
    Post it notes everywhere (This is pretty much a feature at this point, picture will prove)

    Pic:


    And yes I do plan on getting an aftermarket cooler for the i5 at some point.
    Node 304 | i7 3770 | H77N WIFI | 2x4GiB HyperX 1600 | 2x512GB MX100 | MSI GTX970 4GiB | U2711 | 6GV2 | Naga Hex Wrath | Yamaha RX-V550 | Win7 Enterprise
    15" Retina MBP | i7 4960HQ | 16GiB 1600 | 512GB PCIe SSD | IRIS Pro + GT750M | Orochi | OSX 10.9.5

    ill admit i dont know much about which ODM manufacturers and where their products go, but i cant imagine what kind of problems my psu would have. i checked plenty of reviews and they mostly had good things to say.

    Here's a thread on OCN with a general overview of Thermaltake PSU's, it contains some details as to why that particular line as well as some others are to be avoided.

    ah thanks for that... i just checked my system load and with 100% gpu and cpu load the psu is pulling about 540w from the wall which means the psu is only having to pump out 430ish. so i should be in the clear as far as the problems mentioned are concerned, but ya ill see about replacing the psu.

    I actually didn't know it would make a difference. I'm gonna have to test it later.
    Might just be because it runs more stable. I don't really know myself why since I'm more of a software type of guy.

    Can't post my speccs for some reason though. Says it includes either videos, images or links which I need more posts to be allowed to post -_-'

    Indeed, I love my case.
    Its small but has a 180mm intake fan and the gpu side is lined with a giant vent so it gets adequate cooling as well.

    Ordered, but not received yet :3
    I'm currently using a laptop (Acer Aspire 6930 2-year-old with BluRay/DVD-burner combo ) which is quite horrible, really. 4GB ram on win-vista x32, yay!

    Computer-proper

    Mobo - Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3
    CPU - Intel Core i5 760, 2.8GHz
    CPU-cooler - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev.2
    GPU - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC
    PSU - Corsair TX 650W 80+
    RAM - Corsair 4GB (2x2048MB) 1600MHz XMS3
    SSD - Corsair SSD Force Series 60GB 2.5"
    HDD - 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ
    Optic - Samsung SH-S223C 22X DL, Black
    OS - Win7 Home Premium 64bit Swedish oem

    Peripherals;
    Screen - BenQ TFT 24" G2420HDB
    Speakers - Logitech X-530 5.1
    Headset - SteelSeries Siberia V2 Black
    Mouse - Logitech MX518 (only thing salvaged from the wreckage!)
    Pad - SteelSeries QCK
    Keyboard - Logitech G110 Gaming Keyboard

    Nothing enticing for anyone but me, but I'm more than content!

    Once my waterblock+SSD arrive (DAMN SNOW) and I get them installed, I'll refit my H70 to my other machine and take shots of both.
