    Marest your build makes me want to go back to ATX, it's hard to build something that pretty in an M-ATX or M-ITX case!

    Nice build Marest. You did all the sleeving yourself or was that the pre-sleeved pack from corsair? Reason I'm asking is because I'm still at a crossroads wether to sleeve cables myself or just take the easiest route and buy the sleeved cables or extensions. No one can tell the difference but me anyway and peoples eyes will be on the custom loop first and foremost. But I'm such a perfectionist........

    nvm, failed to read all the text drooling over the pictures. They look stunning tbh.

    You'll have to say that a bit louder Deltrus. I am not sure he could hear you over the sound of your Haf X.


    But seriously Marest, that is gorgeous.

    Marest, could you post a picture of the rear of the motherboard tray? I would be interested in seeing how you sorted out the cables so that they are almost invisible, maybe pick up some tricks

    Simply amazing looking build Marest, I have one question though.

    How can you use the keyboard portrayed in this picture: http://imgur.com/Y4Tn3QG.jpg

    Once I went to the Steelseries Merc Stealth


    I simply couldn't use any other type of keyboard for gaming, and feel comfortable. (I am spoilt silly by the game pad on my keyboard hehe)

    Is the keyboard in that picture just used for typing, or something? (It looks, smaller than a traditional keyboard)

    Mechanical keyboards win.

    Always.

    Marest also isn't a fan of flashy tacky looking stuff.

    Ah ok, I'm a bit iffy on what an actual mechanical keyboard is, so I'll have to look into that

    I wouldn't call the merc stealth flashy or tacky looking though, but that's just my personal biased opinion.

    Seeing as I love mine, the game pad is a great feature for me.

    It's better than some keyboards I've seen, but still, I'd prefer a whole separate controller. Maybe some macros right there, but that's it.

    Mechanical keys actually have switches and can last almost indefinitely longer than membrane/rubber-dome keyboards.

    I have a few macros that I use it to hit with, on WoW, but I play fairly macro light, except for on the Function keys, which are cooldowns.

    I like the keyboard a lot though because it just feels like a completely natural hand position for me. When gaming, the distance my left hand sits while on the game pad and where my right hand sits on my mouse feels completely natural and comfortable.

    Tbh, I've always felt using a whole separate controller to be really awkward and uncomfortable.


    And oh ok, so that's the difference, just longer lasting?

    Here's my current setup, will post the specs tomorrow or something when I have more time.


    Not much has changed, changed the desktop background, and moved just about all of my icons to the taskbar instead of being on the wallpapered area.

    If longer lasting was all the difference, I would have never bought my mechanical keyboard, least not till my last keyboard - Logitech G15 v2, died. Mechanical keyboards is a WHOLE other world.

    Well, I use my fingers, hands and arms. Sometimes I roll my face from side to side. Joking aside, it adds more space for my mouse and improves posture. I was going to tackle this in my megathread, but you might consider giving these a read:

    Did you miss the picture I just posted? If that isn't tacky I don't know what is.
