    It's not a matter of the build's size, but ie with my GTX 680s in the previous build I had to use an extension fitting to fit the big fittings, because the sheer size of the fitting made it hang over the PCB on the topside. I'm not very fond of this, even if it does have its own 'character'.

    Smaller fittings are simply going to fit easier on the ports themselves.

    I added a new microphone to my set up, the whole video was recorded with it.
    What do you guys think?

    This is my set up again btw.

    Through a lot of googling and searching.
    There's a lot of trash, over priced keyblades out there.
    Mine are made from metal, and high grade plastic, about 100-120$AUD each.

    Ever since I moved I've been using a small desk tripod for my microphone - far from optimal. I decided to do something about it today.

    It was a rather quick mod to do. An ~$10 lamp from IKEA, a screwdriver and a pair of pliers did the trick. I used hot glue to attach the top piece of a table tripod to the end of the arm which is then used to attach the microphone. An alternative would be a large ring along with 4 rubber bands.



    Anyway, tried it out earlier and it works great. No more "taktaktaktaktak" sound from my keyboard.

    How much did it cost to make in total?
    I have a similar microphone stand, but it's a real one.. Only cost about 50$ AUD + shipping from Ebay.
    Materials couldn't be that much cheaper, could it?

    Well, for me it (the lamp) cost 79 SEK, and the rest I had lying around.

    Not sure what the lamp costs in USD or AUD, but I'd recon it's about $10 or thereabout. Factor in cost for the hot glue, zip ties and a leftover mini tripod... maybe $15 total?

    That looks like the TERTIAL lamp, if so it's $9 in the US: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20370383/

    New keyboard in the form of a 6Gv2 SteelSeries using black switches

    Coming from having used a rubber switch keyboard for a long time this was a very pleasant change.

    I wonder, is that because you went from a membrane to a mechanical keyboard or was it specifically the Steelseries 6Gv2? If yes, then what makes it stand out according to you?

    What is this? Stuff wrapped in plastic?!



    I've got my case bits back from their powdercoating session!



    It all looks very lovely, you can check out the rest of the pictures I quickly snapped here!

    I think I'm still going to paint the exterior surfaces with a white HS colour for a nicer finish though My package of acrylic tubing should hopefully arrive by friday so I can have plenty of time to play with them this weekend.
