    Why do you need 2 aperture stickers on one window..? Looks very tacky imo.

    Personally I think it looks much sweeter.

    A single sticker would be a tad boring

    Personally I think that any kind of sticker/badge on or inside a case looks tacky, however that vinyl/sticker actually looks good.

    Well I originally wanted them left to right but I put them on the wrong way haha. One looked better than 2 when I was putting them on. One left too much open space imo.

    I also agree with this, but as you said, these look pretty damn good.

    In WoW, sure. Not in games like Rift, BF3, Skyrim, or The Witcher 2, etc etc, though.

    That's a bit mean. No need to be elitist about it. He can totally rock it in those settings, even in 1080p. At the highest settings? No. But having a GPU more powerful than ones in consoles should make him able to run the consoleports of those more than fine.

    Why are you running your CPU fan as pull? Putting the fan on the other side in a push configuration should work better.

    Doesn't matter if it's push or pull if you're only using fans on one side.

    The fan won't fit on the other side because of the heatspreaders on my ram . Would it hurt if I moved my ram into slots 2 and 4?

    It does matter when he already has an exhaust fan 2 inches behind it.

    If I did that I could move the fan onto the other side. Other than that any other comments on my gaming setup?

    Looks pretty good, whats up with the fans under the GPU though?

    Now that I think about it I'm not really sure. Guess I should switch the 2 cards around so the fans are on top of the GPU.

    Well I was more wondering what the purpose are for them at all. Do they actually do something for you except for creating extra noise and the blue lights?

    They move a decent amount of air and granted if I turn it all the way up it make lots of noise but around half they don't make much noise. I don't mind a little fan noise.

    They move air yes, they are fans. But do they actually give you a noticeable benefit? Have you compared for example the GPU temps with and without those fans installed?

    But if you have a gaming computer, why should you be stuck having to play shoddy console-ports? We've had the technology to play PC-variants for years.
