    I've got:
    1x Achieva Shimian 2560x1440 korean monitor
    2x ASUS MW221U 1680x1050
    1x Xerox XM7 1680x1050 (Currently not being used)
    1x Samsung S22B 1920x1080

    I plan to replace the 2x ASUS monitors with a QNIX & a Yamakasi monitor

    Wow, I am extremely interested in those Korean monitors. I have been debating whether to get 120+Hz or IPS but it seems I can have the best of both worlds with one of those.

    Out of the 3 you listed, which would you say is best? And does yours have any dead pixels? I could not bear even 1 dead pixel off in the corner it would drive me nuts.

    Aren't technically almost all monitors Korean, or at least the panels?

    yeah, but "korean" generally refers to off brand B and C grade panels

    well that depends on how you define that and what you expect from the screen.
    from what i've heard the screens can be just as good as say a dell one.
    they are just more basic, only one connector no buttons to adjust certain screen settings etc.
    could it be a limiting factor maybe but it doesn't have to be.

    Debated on getting a Korean monitor some time ago. Decided not to get one as the main factor that turned me off was no warranty...

    They're very good for the price, you save a chunk of money while having little to no issues in most cases

    Let's not go offtopic though, Tetris is ever-watchful.

    So, found a couple of photos on my phone from when I reversed the airflow and upgraded my Steambox's graphics card. Thought I would post some pictures if anyone else is interested in small form factor but can't get their head around how to build as compact as possible without turning it into a heatbox.

    Specs:
    Asus P8Z77I-Deluxe WD - Intel Core i7-3770K (4.5Ghz) - 8GB Kingston HyperX 1600mhz CL9 - Asus GTX770 DCUII (1275/7400) - WD Caviar Blue 1TB - Samsung 840 250GB - Corsair CX 600W - Fractal Design Node 304 - Corsair H60

    The H60 is configured in push/pull drawing air from the back, for this job 2 Noctua NF-F12's are used, both running at a constant 700RPM. Both front fans have reversed airflow and the PSU also helps out pulling the hot air from the gpu out. Temps are as following: CPU 31 Idle, 70 load - GPU 26 Idle, 79 Load (gpu boost 2.0) - System 26 Idle, 44 Load.

    Small side view of the open box from the GPU side.

    top view to illustrate just how much clear room is needed to not make a heat box.

    Another one

    And a third one.

    It's impossible to make a fully clean build, but making sure the airflow is optimal is still key. The box ain't see-through anyway.

    Sure took alot of cable strips to get everything like this.

    If you are attempting a similar build, this is the best configuration I've found so far. I'm still playing with the idea of watercooling this rig.... I almost got it scetched up even with measures, part list and all.

    Sheesh. Way to call the poor guy out. =/

    Why are you down to 3 monitors though? :O Thought you loved 12 monitors...

    Also, looking nice, Lemmiwink!

    Have you tried temperature difference between only pull? Because I doubt there's a lot of them; Then again, I guess the other fan is left out on a whole. I'd have liked a thicker 120mm rad personally, if you have motherboard clearance.
    Otherwise, I quite like small form-factor builds.

    I've heard the CX series get a lot of flack as far as longevity goes. By the looks of it, swapping out the PSU if the CX does die off wouldn't be very fun.

    I respect what you've done, though. Very nice

    I had an H80 in there prior to going back to the H60. It fits quite well actually but since it can only use 1 fan due to space, the rad gets kinda superheated by the gpu and it actually gives far worse temps. This very cabinet was really tricky to get as cool as a bigger tower but it was alot of fun perfecting it.

    The CX600W was chosen due to size and longevity actually. I build alot of computers, I fix alot of computers for people as well. In my book the CX series is not really any more problematic than other PSU's. Should it die and I have to do everything all over again I believe I would actuallyt enjoy that lol.

    the WASD buttons look nice but they feel awful, too pointy.

    Keep in mind you can swap those keys out, Corsair throw in the "normal" WASD keys as well (I'm pretty sure).

    a quick thought i had on mine: (i have two models with MX Blues switches)

    new K70 the switches look like MXBlues, but i think they are fake, they don't sound or feel like real blues, and some are just tactile, no click sound

    overall, it feels made as cheap as possible, there is not consistent sound across the board, nor consistent feel between keys, its very disappointing, and given the issues i had receiving them, i've not been impressed by corsair, and am leaning towards staying away from their products for the time being

    Damn that looks awesome! And those are some strong overclocks! Would love to see you post in both my CPU and GPU OC leaderboard threads!

    Also, why remove the second Titan? What is it doing in the meantime? Lying around gathering dust?

    Might end up selling it to a friend for cheap and grab either a 290x or 780ti to head off vs this titan im using atm, if the 290x and 780ti fail to impress ill probably just put it back in :P

    i can get the 4770k to do 5.2 but it needs 1.27v for that and the temps are just 1c shy of the throttling point lol, i really need to delid this thing.

    the titan i have now can pass 3dmark and unigine valley at upwards of 1350+core and 3900+ memory with 1.35v with the afterburner hack, ill post in your threads soon
