    thanks Cheezus, well i agree the razer sticker is kind of awkward since i dont have anything from that company atm, but the monitor is really old and iam using it with like 3rd PC, so i got used to it

    About the 2nd one...do you wanna know a secret ? the thing under monitor was actually chocolate box made of metal, i just used black ducktape around it and the sticker was nice finish imo

    I really don't see why people always have to force their likes and dislikes on other people. Frankly, I don't think he "plastered his monitor stand with stickers." He put two whole stickers on and they don't even look that tacky. It isn't like he put on 20 stickers in a random mess... he put two on in specific places that make sense. You can dislike stickers all you want, but some people like them and that is okay. Stickers help define us, they help show what we like. Those two whole stickers tell me he likes some Razer and Steelseries gear, why that is an issue, I have not a clue. Let's try to be a little more supportive of each other.

    TTL likes clean builds, you know. And so do I. But I don't bring up someone's two whole stickers on their stand. O_o

    For instance, here is the extant of my stickers on my computer case. Only reason I put it on? It's a metallic-looking eVGA thang. Frankly, I find that it looks pretty nice and since it isn't large, I'm not bothered.

    YOU WILL LIKE KRK!!!! ACCEPT IT AND LIKE IT!!!

    honestly though, its about community, when you see someone doing the same thing as you, by default you have something in common, there is a lot of psychology behind it relating to fanboys, product loyalty, etc, but too much for this thread, maybe the chat thread or a skype discussion posted to youtube would be better

    Have you guys considered maybe he simply doesn't know any better? Maybe doesn't know about Haswell (unlikely but possible) or that the difference isn't that big etc. , maybe some other reason we don't know about. Perhaps we could offer some advice/suggestions instead, it's only a no-brainer if you know about it. I've seen more silly stuff than that. However seeing as it's only a year old with 2500K, it does seem a little out of place but again who knows.

    It's coming along, missing a titan for now, long story, and as the blocks are SO HARD to re-align with the damn fiddly O rings, I left the block on and braced it from underneath.

    With a single card, runs around 23 degrees idle, CPU at around 32ish. Need to get some more 90 degree fittings for those pesky hoses too. That top left one is really irritating me. But everywhere was closed over Christmas.

    Just a heads up Nianif, you may want to resize your images, think there is a rule where you can only have them so wide.

    Nice way to ruin your laptop aesthetics with stickers

    So much hardware though! I dig the chair.

    @Fierae, that looks asbolutely brilliant.
    Why the blue rings on the SP120's though, they have white rings in the box. Also there is 4 fans blowing in, 2 out. Is this done intentionally?

    They do indeed come with white, I was undecided, the white rings are sat by my desk. I may decide to swap them over just to see what they look like, but then again as the motherboard/RAM have blue in them, I thought it may compliment it quite well.

    As for the fans, positive pressure in the case is better, from what I've read. If you have too many fans pushing air out of the case, air will get 'sucked' in through all the cracks in the case to compensate for the pressure difference. When it is the other way around, air tries to find its way out of the case instead which is generally better.
