    Right now I'm using a test bench with the radiator and res mounted badly, but it's been fine for a couple of months so I'll keep it like that. This summer I'll try to get an actual case and mount everything cleanly. I have an extra 240mm thin radiator that I used in my previous setup, but I'm getting really good temps with only one thick 240mm so I'll probably stick to that... It will make my case choice easier

    Any reason you didn't get a case to begin with? Pretty nice setup though I like it.

    I had a 650D before (here are some pics http://i.imgur.com/OKOpRl.jpg and http://i.imgur.com/JLX4ol.jpg) but felt like changing it up since it was like 1 year since I had that setup (lol I know that's not a lot but I was getting tired of it).. I really wanted a tube reservoir and ended up just putting everything on my test bed.. later on maybe this summer I'll put everything back neatly into a case

    Received a couple quality of life improvements in the mail today!




    Dual headphone stand, nice looking wood, I must say!
    And a keyboard wrist rest from 3M, very much influenced by the recent Razer Vespula purchase. The 3M is pretty comfy!

    Hope you didn't pay much for the stand. Looks like something that could be made easily and in an hour or so. (This coming from someone who is a carpenter, house builder)

    Updated my setup recently.

    Before:


    After:
    Personal Rig: AMD FX-8350 / ASUS GTX-780 / 8-GB Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 1600Mhz / EVGA SuperNOVA 750w PSU / NZXT Phantom 820 / NZXT Kraken x60

    Nice set up man did you build the desk or buy it? looking for something similir?

    Ikea. If you have one withing reasonable driving distance i recommend going, because their shipping is WAY expensive. To the www.ikea.com and go to the office/business part and look for tabletops and legs. I just picked out some tabletops that worked and the legs. Then drove 3 hours to an Ikea store already knowing what i wanted to i could get in and back out. Cool thing is all the of the legs and underdesk storage things are the same height so they are interchangeable.

    I have between this case (micro one tho) and Aerocool's dead silence for a few days and cannot decide yet. Although i like Aerocool's more there seems to be a small cut (odd) at backplate.

    I sometimes organise operas, like This one

    Camilla: You, sir, should unmask.
    Stranger: Indeed?
    Cassilda: Indeed, it's time. We have all laid aside disguise but you.
    Stranger: I wear no mask.
    Camilla: (Terrified, aside to Cassilda.) No mask? No mask!

    Ive been thinking about replacing my Phantom 820 with the Air 540. Do you like it? and how sturdy is it? My Phantom is just WAYYY too big to take to LAN parties i found out the hard way.

    Heh Dezrow I did exactly that, I switched from the Phantom 630 to this case and it's brilliant, very sturdy and more than enough room for basically everything. The only thing is that you can only put two normal HDDs in it and about 8 SSDs (If I recall correctly)

    Oh man that Schiit website is hilarious!

    You guys swear on the quality? I think I'm going to make an investment...
    Edit: While I'm at it, any suggested headphones to pair with it?

    I finally got a set up that lets me have my computer in the living room rather than the man cave. It sucked being in a different room than my family.
    Sorry the oriantenation is stupid.

    Still hard to see, but I just mounted the monitor on a long arm mount so it will swing out along side the couch. Not as comfortable as a nice office chair, but it was worth the trade.

    I have heard nothing but amazing feedback regarding Schiit, and look forward to taking the plunge in the future.

    Knowing that I am getting a bit off topic by doing so.. but..
    As far as headphones, that depends on price, sound taste and personal opinion. You should really do some research if you are considering going the route of quality audio. A solid starting point would be the link provided in my signature. Of course you are always welcome to ask once you have refined your question a bit beyond "suggest me a pair of headphones".

    If you are going to drop more than 100 bucks on audio hardware, go to a proper high-end audio store and try it out. Actually listening to music through the headphones and seeing if you like it is worth so much more than a dozen people telling you what they sound like.

    Backplate i cannot tell you because i have the mini-itx version. Which would make a backplate cutout rather silly.
    About the OD, i didn't really look at it that much. Basicly took it out by automation. I CAN tell you that you can use the OD tray and a fullsize graphics card, but you have to remove one of the 120mm fans on top. And you can't use a top H105/H100i for example.

    But err... who uses floppy and disc these days D: Dat shit is beyond unconvenient.
