A second reason is so that when I can get a solid i5 Haswell / i7 Haswell-E, I will be passing this CPU on to my Mom, who actually plays WoW, and this chip is a direct drop-in upgrade for her system (Currently running a Trinity).

    I also wanted to see how well it OC's with an AIO cooler, due to the crazy clocks I have seen via LN2 OC's. (8.5Ghz is just bonkers to me).
    Having the IGP and the Turbo locked out, dedicates the entire TDP to the processor.

    TL;DR
    I'ts an experiment that has a future for another system.

    I wait for a day when I could afford such a nice, shiny, powerful setup. Poland's a bitch, I must say. The amount of effort required to get a GPU like this in Poland is outrageous when compared to other, normal countries

    Going to get my new shizz on Wed, 8th of Jan after 4 PM. Will post dem screenies once I do some proper cable management this time.

    Got a new custom build desk, a dual monitor stand, and some lights around the desk to set it off! Everything is simple and clean!



    How I rock 99% of the time (Lights can go to any color, or strobe or do anything you want with them!)

    Dropped $200 and got this at my local Sam Ash today! Needless to say my Presonus Eris E5 studio monitors are sounding crystal clear now! Plus it allows to play the same audio through the speakers and headphones at different volume levels, which will be great for when I am drumming for a friend/camera!





    TASCAM US-366 USB Audio Interface folks, it works, gets rid of electrical noise of heavier duty computers and has loads of features!

    Basically just imagine it in the middle of my desk in this picture now:

    Which of the books produce better audio quality for its speaker?
    Also, do you normally keep your mic there? I'd personally be distracted, even if sitting at an angle looking past it, due to reflections.

    What's up with the GPU that just "happened" to be lying near the Tascam btw?

    Either way, neat idea, I approve (although I haven't checked up on Tascam before or now, so I cannot comment on it, but I'm liking what I'm seeing)

    The difference between monitors in that picture isn't even visible outside of the picture...or maybe I've adapted to not noticing it? Very strange!

    Skyrim, it has a larger base. The philosophy book isn't quite big enough.

    No, mic is usually laying down. Just for the picture I wanted things to look more neat. However, not sure if you saw, but I am planning to pick up one of these.

    That's my ol' MSI GTX 560 Ti.

    Thanks! Apparently TASCAM has had their rough times but the US-366 people are saying is them doing a good job at making something higher quality again. As much as I want to use it for headphones, I feel I may still use the Xonar, as the headphone port on this thing isn't strong by any means. 18mW+18mW. >_> I can kind of tell with both my Audio Technica ATH AD700s and the Shure SRH440s. However it is certainly a fantastic improvement over the shit I was doing before!

    The knobs turn really smoothly. It's sexy.

    So wait, how are you actually running the TASCAM atm? Is it connected to the Xonar or motherboard? If it's an USB audio interface does it have it's own amp or is it just something to link stuff together without the noise you were getting previously? :P

    Edit: Facepalming so hard atm.. usb audio interface..

    Haha, no worries man! I wasn't even sure at first if it would do USB, seeing as how it doesn't actually list "USB in" at all in the spec sheet. I've a pretty good feeling though that it lacks any true headphone amp.

    Well, finally got around to setting up my computer again and took some pictures (crappy ones, but they'll have to do) of my set up so far.

    Just a warning for the faint of heart: the cable management is horrible (read: nearly nonexistent), both inside and outside the computer. I recently bought a new case so I moved everything from one case to the new one and simply haven't gotten around to taking care of the cables.







    Computer:
    Case: Corsair 650D
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
    CPU: i5-3570K @ 3.4GHz (Haven't overclocked it yet )
    GPU: GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 3GB
    Heatsink: Thermaltake Frio
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
    SSD: Samsung 830 256GB
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB
    PSU: Corsair HX650

    Peripherals:
    Monitor: Samsung B350 Series 23.6"
    Keyboard: Logitech G110
    Mouse: SteelSeries Sensei RAW
    Speakers: Logitech Z506
    Headset: SteelSeries Siberia V2

    Other Stuff:
    PS4
    PS3
    3x1 HDMI Switch

    First time posting pictures on these forums so I'm not sure if they're too big. If they are, I'd be happy to scale them down if someone could explain how to.

    @solvexx

    Couple things:

    1. How big is the SSD?
    2. Why spend money on an H100i and RGB strips when you could probably have used it to at least get a GTX 660? Please tell me your 650 Ti is at least a BOOST edition. =X
