    Thanks! Most probably edge-lit, but not any bleed worth mentioning

    Appears to be some form of Android based tablet wedged into a pc case.

    Marest,

    is there a reason you don't put the top cover on the FT02?

    Maybe he's been swapping things around and never got back to putting the cover back on? Also, isn't it an RV02?

    It's mostly due to the massive mess of cables. I'll try to slim it down somewhat this time around, but considering how many peripherals I have plugged in it doesn't surprise me that it's almost impossible to get it on. There's a HDMI cable, DVI cable, two display-port cables, a total of 9 USB cables, Ethernet cable, headphone cable and power cable.

    Also, it hinders airflow somewhat. I got my fans turned down so low they barely spin which makes them dead silent, but unfortunately that matters little as the reference 7970 is fairly loud even at the lowest manageable fan speed of 25% (which, with a clock of [email protected] means an idle temperature of around 43-46C, and a max operating temperature while playing light games of around 82-88C). If I pop the lid on without increasing the fans (= more noise) that temperature rises to 90C which triggers the fan to spin up to around 50%. I simply like having one profile I can use in day-to-day work/gaming without my computer being too loud. I have a global hotkey for my 1.1GHz overclock with a custom fan curve that I trigger whenever I jump into a more demanding game.

    And then I like the look and accessibility. Having your entire I/O right next to your desk is pretty awesome, especially since I swap keyboard and mouse daily.

    What a coincidence, I moved my rig around yesterday to make the I/O more accessible. :P (Pictures coming up, just need to downscale them because I need to save as much bandwidth as possible, as my internet speeds go down to 128Kbit/s | 56Kbit/s once I go over 100GB.)

    Damn, if I had went for the FT02 instead of the Node 605.

    Holy hell... And I thought my Double D cooler was terrible. I didn't realize the reference coolers were that bad. Do you think it has anything to do with how much positive pressure is in your case?

    Chromed key-caps? Or is that stainless steel?

    also Nocturnus: remember that 800px rule?

    Chromed would make them pick up oils over time I believe. Stainless steel would be too heavy. They are most likely pure zinc, or a zinc keycap with a plastic Cherry MX mount underneath.

    Looks great btw. Had plans to pick up a pair myself but don't want them to mess with my backlight (aka bling).

    Wouldn't Zinc corrode over time due to the acidity of sweat?
