    Very nice layout. Wish the picture was a little brighter though. I've been thinking about getting a second monitor and mounting my TV on the wall like the one you have.

    Yup, I like his little contraption.

    One of these: http://www.amazon.com/Zoom-H1-Portab...ywords=zoom+h1

    Their sound quality is exceptional, too. I believe they use the same mics, but here's a video that was recorded using the video version of essentially the same thing (Zoom ZQ3HD):

    If I had to nitpick something it would be that H80. I know it's a proper cooler but tight custom loop with single 120 rad and a small tube res would stand out more. And the Fatal1ty logo has slightly too much white in it.

    To each their own! I personally like how the Fatal1ty logo looks. :P

    It is, like Deltrus said, a Zoom H1. Amateur microphone. I use it to record concerts mostly. And the rubber contraption is self-made; I'm waiting for a replacement.

    I do agree with you that a custom loop would definitely look a lot better, but at the time I didn't have the money or time to venture into custom watercooling. If I would've done the build today I would have done a few things differently. As they say... next time!

    There is no doubt in my mind Marest will be heading that direction in the not so distant future. He was able to go the route recently that he did with the triple IPS displays, he'll likely go custom loop (if he wants to soon).

    i have the radiator for the FT02, it's not worth it IMO unless you are doing a show piece, the case requires heavy modifications just to dry fit the radiator, the HDD cage needs to be cut and shortened, and the whole bottom of the chassis needs to have about 75% of the material cut away

    not to mention the FT02 is so good on its own that watercooling provides almost no benefit

    I'm developing monitor envy, all you guys and your multi monitor setups. Here I'm stuck with a 19 inch standard definition Dell flat screen and some piece of shit Compaq 17" widescreen. I need to set aside some cash and get a couple 20-24 inchers. That sounds so dirty if I say it out loud.

    I'd even just say, get $100-110, buy a nice high pixel density 21.5" 1920x1080 display (like my Acer S211HL, but I would avoid LED backlit in the future, this thing can get very bright if anything white is on the screen) and use the 19" as your internet-browser.

    Of course if you love form and consistency, buy 2 of the same cheaper display.

    Then again, if you want IPS, then yes, it will cost a fortune.

    I have one of those Zoom microphones myself, they are handy little recorders. You can get a foam cover and an angled stand for them I know, I think the whole accessory kit is about 15 bucks. Nice setup though, looks awesome.

    23 inch IPS LED monitors can be had for pretty cheap. The two LG monitors I use were 190 dollars each, if I can still find one I will get a 3rd eventually and drop the money on a monitor stand.
