    Actually, I thought of that. I didn't have the time to remove everything so I just painted the side panels. I'll probably buy a new case before I paint it tho.

    Hmm, those speakers are so far apart that it almost makes me think you were missing a center speaker. Still, that's a heal of a nice desk and sound setup!

    What is Audioengine 5+ exactly (google couldn't find that model), and what is the source of the sound? Not sure how DAC's work, is it like a sound card?

    edit: also that headset, is that a Razer Siberia/Meglodon or Turtle Beaches?

    Yeah I was worried about the speakers being far apart, but I didn't really have anywhere else to put them. Luckily cause the desk is fairly deep, I sit back a bit from the screens and speakers, so its not noticeable.

    This is a link to the speakers: http : //audioengineusa.com/Store/Audioengine-5-Plus

    The DAC is basically an external high end sound card - Audioengine D1. I definitely could tell the difference when I changed from the on board sound

    The headset is the megalodon.

    Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE
    Graphics: EVGA GTX 680
    Case: CoolerMaster HAF 932 Gaming
    Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws-X 2133 Mhz DDR 3 8GB
    CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz

    Need a few upgrades, going about getting them slowly. Need an IPS Panel Monitor 120Hz. A new SSD that will use 6Gb/s Sata. A new keyboard. Otherwise I am pretty happy with what I have got

    And sadly there's no 120Hz IPS monitors; IPS technology is argued to be too slow.

    I've seen some very nice cable management in this thread. Any tips for this? Do you need a specific case, psu or do you buy seperate cables?

    1. Plan ahead.
    2. Take your time.
    3. Use cable ties.

    A big help is to have a case that allows for routing of cables behind the motherboard tray.

    Also, click this.

    A case with enough space behind the motherboard tray to route cables, enough holes in the motherboard tray to get the cables out of sight ASAP and a semi-modular or fully-modular power supply helps.

    Grouping cables that run in the same direction can help.

    We're drifting off-topic again, if you have questions about your prospective build or want tips on cable management, please make a separate thread. Thanks! :>

    Moved house and finally upgraded some parts. Still quite a bit I'd like to do but there's no need for it really.

    Here's my old post and old rig.

    Asus P8P67 Motherboard
    Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.3Ghz
    2GB GByte GTX670 OC
    8GB Memory (2x4GB 1600MHz)
    CORSAIR 600W PSU
    Edimax EW-7612PIn Network Card
    1TB SAMSUNG HDD
    120GB Corsair SSD

    Dell U2311 Monitor
    Roccat Kova Mouse
    Razer Megalodon Headset
    Razer Arctosa Keyboard
    Creative T7900 7.1 Speakers

    Coolmaster Silencio 550 case

    What I'd like to do is overclock the CPU, which I think I'll do before GW2 hits. I'd then like to buy a new case, a new sound card, speakers, headset and keyboard. Again most of these are just things I'd 'like' to do but there's no real need because what I have works and it does the job it needs to do.

    Please excuse the terrible photo skills. Using a phone camera as usual and I suck at photography!
