    Agility 3 got it a long time ago as they were close in performance and quality to Vertex 3. The Agility 4 seem to be plagued with terrible failure rates. Just running 4.6GHz at 1.3V right now. Hottest temp was 61C on the second core for CPU. Havent overclocked my GPU yet still at stock 1200MHz, but I have flashed its BIOS for unlocked voltage.

    Pretty sure the Agility 3 had worse failure rates, especially back in 2011, what with the whole SandForce SF-2281 controller fiasco and OCZ being very poor in acknowledging that a problem DID exist. I had an Agility 3 for a whole week, was plagued with freezes and slow-downs of the computer in general, made my raiding a bitch.

    Then I returned it, got a Crucial m4 128GB, have not looked back since. It's now been 2 years. ^_^

    Had this a little over two years it was pretty awful for the first few months until they fixed the firmware. Has been rock solid ever since. I actually have three more throughout the house because they are so cheap and have been very reliable for me.

    Yeah, OCZ was all "what? there's a problem? never heard anything about it. just going to ignore you all until you go away".

    Despite the infractions, that build looks spectacular!

    For a basement nerd cave it's surprisingly not horrible down there. I sort of wish I didn't have
    to have a living room for people to sit and talk in. I'd much rather just have combination sitting
    room/computer station/meeting room/etc. like the office of a supervillan CEO in the movies.

    We haven't had a black-and-white picture with too much bokeh for a while. Where are those guys?

    Damn that is one clean rig!

    Don't really like how the speakers are positioned though, being directly in front of speakers facing you, or right past your ears, is an amazing experience.

    You can snag the desk by assembling parts from ikea. It's not really a specific desk, just those components you can buy (table top, legs, storage units, drawers, etc) put together. The total price for all the bits and pieces was probably around $500-ish here, and probably much less costly in Sweden or America.

    The reason I went with flat-pack rather than something from DWR is that you can modify it without feeling guilty or worrying that you're about to destroy $2500 worth of furniture. On a mac it's no big deal: there's just one or two cables (power, and maybe one to your screen) but my PC had 10 cables on the desk and then another dozen for printer, usb devices, speakers, network, etc. There's no way to have that look clean without giving it some attention:
    • Use a hole-saw to cut a 10cm circle in the 'cubby hole' that holds the tower case to route cables into it.
    • Into the pull-drawers add 4-port powered USB hubs so that your tablet/phone/camera have a place to charge out of sight
    • Into the cabinet-style drawers add power bars so that your 'big toys' can charge (laptop) out of sight
    • Use hose clamps(?) to route cables down the back of the of the shelves.
    All you need is a hand-held power drill, a couple of hole-saws (2cm 5cm and 10cm), a handful of screws, and maybe a USB extension cable or two. Cheap and easy cable management for your gaming corner.

    Would love to see the cable management pics evn.

    I really should put some effort into a nice desk and cable management seeing how I am at my desk far more than 20 hours a day.

    Yeah, if you could get pictures of how your cables are routed, I think a lot of us would appreciate it!

    Here's a shot of my gaming setup. I really need to do an overhaul on it soon as I'm really uncomfortable for some reason. That and I hate not having my 3rd screen over on the right side of the desk. And my tower is way to big to be up on the desk as well. But I have no ikea near me, or within 30mins of me and I haven't seen any other nice looking desks. And I don't have the money to drop $700+ on a desk and cable managing stuff =/. Not to mention I want a nice 27" 1440p monitor.

    Always taking suggestions on my setup and what to do better with it.

    A nice sturdy coffee table or some other short table makes for a good case-stand!

    I personally use a coffee table my Great granddad made out of solid wood. The thing is heavy as shit!
