    Anyway, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Just try to argument it better, for your own sake.

    You will not find a system, with the Mac Pro's hardware, nigh perfect symbiosis between soft- and hardware and level of engineering. Especially not, at that price.
    So many of the posts like this I would like to +1

    That's enough with the Apple discussion, brand bashing is forbidden across the forum, but especially so in this thread.

    The h110 is a very good cooler though. Personally I wouldn't bother with custom loops unless you intend to 'watercool' your graphic cards as well.

    Either way, DT 990's are amazing, you should enjoy them a lot!

    What are you driving them with? I'm using a Xonar Essence STX soundcard for mine, and it has worked wonderfully so far (it was a tremendous improvement over the default soundcard on the motherboard, also, I like that it has a 6.3 mm headphone jack slot, so that I can use the 6.3 mm jack with my DT 990's instead of the 3.5 mm)
    I got the 250Ohm version, I'm currently driving them with the onboard sound on my ASUS Maximus VI Impact.

    My Schiit has yet to arrive, last I heard of it, it was at the "airport city" of Greenland, so it should be in my hands within the next 2-3 days.

    Here are some links to my setup. Dual monitor stand that Deltrus recommended. And a desk I only paid $80 for via craigslist lol. Unfortunately had to make a cutout on the backside for the monitor stand. Not a big deal.

    Got my Schiit yesterday, spent around half of the afternoon listening to music.

    It's honestly my first time listening to music where I'm able to hear EVERYTHING happening in a song.

    It's so... pure, so beautiful!

    That is some pretty sexy Schiit.
    Nice choice on the DT990's to accompany that setup.

    Got to love those Beyerdynamic velour pads. Too bad my old DT770's headband kept making my head ache, despite two weeks worth of initial book training to relieve the clamp tension. I ended up picking up some AD900x's and have been in love since. Perhaps I should look into fitting my AD900x with Beyerdynamic velour pads.
