    I don't know what they call them technically. Generally they're just dubbed CSQ after the CSQ design. The new blocks are the original non-CSQ ones, because I don't like the new blocks' bridge system (because they only have ports on one side...).

    My old block (CSQ one) is acrylic and copper, not nickel (that's my new non-CSQ ones). I don't have any use for it myself anymore, so I might sell it if someone appears interested. /shrug

    Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the CSQ design, but depending on how much you want for it I may be interested in the block.

    Well they're here...MicroLab Solo7C.



    They sound better than what they were priced at...not as pristine as SP2500's but will get the job done for the TV. It would seem I will need some sort of cheap amp (no I'm not using my damn 1999 amp) because the laptop headphone jack can't seem to drive them very well.

    Love it, really solid case for the price. Grip handle design on the top is really cool too.

    OK, here's my setup. This was taken a couple months ago, when I finished painting my new room, and got my desk assembled. The 19" screen died last weekend, so it's been with a single screen the past week. I'll be ordering a 22" or 23" to replace it soon.

    Case: Raidmax Sirius
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 B50 @ 3.2ghz (unlocked Phenom II X2 550 BE)
    RAM: 4GB G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 @ 1600mhz 7-8-7-24-2N
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 465 1GB
    Boot: 60GB Mushkin Enhanced Chronos SSD
    Drive 1: Western Digital Caviar Black 750GB
    Driver 2: Western Digital Caviar green 800GB
    Drive 3: Hitachi GST 500GB
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    Keyboard: Logitech G11
    Mouse: Logitech G700 (Cyborg R.A.T. 5 pictured, the laser died shortly after the picture was taken)

    Technically not a gaming setup (although, with a Xbox 360 controller it totally is), but this thread has fallen behind so I'll post anyway in an attempt to resurrect it.



    Plan is to shorten the cables to make the cable-mess less cluttered. (For those who can't see, pictured is a Google Nexus 7, a cheap slim USB keyboard, a Logitech M125 and an old 4-port USB hub.)

One thing to keep in mind is that i'm running this in an 800D with only 1 exhaust fan at the back. The 800D is infamous for it's rather poor airflow (as it's only got 1 intake, and that's not a great design), so it's not a problem. Main point is that these temps are fine by me as i can always fix them very easily.
    My EVGA SC 670 idles at around 30C, are you having this temperature when it is very hot in the room? Does your card not have underclock technology?

    My setup:

    Win 8 Proff 64bit
    i5 3570k 4.5ghz (cooled by corsair H80)
    MSI za77a-g45
    4*2 Kingston hyperx ddr3 1600 2GB (8GB total)
    Sapphire HD 6790 (will be upgraded soonish)
    OCZ vertex 2 SSD 60GB (OS)
    Some random 7200 RPM harddrive (500GB for data)
    Coolermaster storm scout (v1)
    Microsoft sidewinder x6
    Razer naga (old one, not 2012)

    What case do you use, and what sort of fan setup do you use? The 800D is fairly notorious as far as aircooling goes.

    I just installed MSI Afterburner just to take a look. Only to find out my EVGA GTX 670 is running at 1200MHz core clock when a game is running. But the specifications read 1084MHz Boost Clock..

    I have done absolutely nothing about it's settings after installing it 3 months ago, what the actual fuck?
