    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.

    On the topic of audio...rushed photo of my latest purchase, a Logitech UE Boom Box.



    The rise of portable bluetooth speakers has been pretty nuts and made it really hard for me to pick one...especially considering I had no plans to use it with bluetooth, always aux input/line-in. This was the only one out of the 4-5 other competing players (Jambox, Sony, Braven, etc) I tested in-store where my Cowon J3 or Galaxy S4 wasn't too weak as aux input. The build quality feels rock-solid...perhaps not as sturdy as Braven products (all-metal lol) but good enough with it's one-piece metal handle.

    As expected the bass was overpowered through the roof (oh Logitech) to the point where I had to greatly lower it below normal on my J3's EQ to achieve any kind of balance.
    Overall VERY happy with the purchase, this thing cranks out some serious volume considering the size! The battery lasts at least 4-5 hours at decent volume, can freely move it around the house or take it anywhere with me e.g. for workout/gym, guitar practice, parties, short trips to places, etc but usually I have it plugged into somewhere.

    120cd/m2 (Lux), 2.2 Gamma, 6500k white point target.
    Have an issue trying to calibrate the one color range, the one highlighted by a red square. So it wasn't exactly a total success for calibration.
    I might check out CalMAN software.

    My other monitor on the other hand is a complete mess to calibrate. It does have like, 27k or 28k hours on on it.

    Not sure how you people get bad quality pictures with the Samsung Galaxy S4... do you not have it set to take high res pictures?

    Example with my Galaxy S4...



    Not sure why yours is so grainy.
