    "done" with the build I did for a friend, didn't go as smooth as I planned. Ordered a NH-D14 LGA2011 instead of the LGA1150 version (I'm and idiot...), so this will be added soon, and the right memory DIMM is faulty. The define R4 is a very nice case, excellent build quality, so quiet when you have all fans @5V on the fan controller. My only issue with it was the zip tie holes in the back, there are some in the middle, but behind the actual motherboard, there are none...

    Cable management isn't perfect, but it'll do in a windowless case :-). Routed the PCI-E cables upwards because the GPU was sagging so hard. This reduced it quite a bit. Shame on you Asus for still not fixing your GPU sagging...

    Meh, I had those AF series from corsair. I think they were quite noisy at 5V, the motors were far from smooth and rumbled quite a bit. Especially compared to equally priced Be Quiet fans.

    Sums it up quite well. The corner piece is being integrated into the construction after you finished the first table but before you continue with the second one making it a very solid construction.

    With this design now being at least 15y old I have my doubts you'd still find the necessary components to build it like I did.
    ~5y ago, when I decided to run more than one screen, I wasn't even able to find the monitor stand you can see under the center one.

    Doing some internet search I was able to find some similar designs, might have to look for office related products.

    Niceee, you'll need more than a 760 to really pump those kinds of framerates in heavier games though (or play at low-medium settings) :P

    Also it's risky to keep a glass of full water like that on the desk, I would probably end up knocking it over in the first 5 seconds haha. Bottles > glasses!

    But make sure the bottle is from a good brand, preferably using high-quality materials to ensure best performance.

    I currently get 100+ FPS in all games, some games are closer to 200. WoW sits at ~120 ish untill im in a 25man. And thats on max settings. I have considered either an upgrade for my GPU or maybe a second one.

    Crysis 2 or 3, Battlefield 3 or 4, Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3.. just a few new games. None of those you can play >50 fps on ultra.

    To be quite honest, you may be surprised what a 760 can do, especially if you overclock it a little... It's perfect for those of us who only care about Skyrim... and coming soon to a computer near you, TESO.
