    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)

    Stranger: Indeed?

    Stranger: I wear no mask.
    Camilla: (Terrified, aside to Cassilda.) No mask? No mask!

    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.

    Cool thanks, i was interested, if i was going for it, to remove the floppy but keep the OD. On same cases the OD and floppy are bolted together so you dont have the choice to keep OD only.

    Ohhhh, you know why i asked about the backplate? Cause on the website i usually shop it show's backplate on side for the mini! After your reply had a look at bitfenix website...mini is horizontal backplate and micro vertical...

    I feel the following should be mentioned, though:

    15-Day Satisfaction Guarantee
    Try Asgard 2 in your own house for 15 days. If you don’t like it, simply send it back for a refund, minus a 5% transaction fee. Try spending 15 days in an audio store. They’ll kick you out. Unless you buy them donuts. Maybe.

    So i didn't really like the subwoofer setup, my room is too small and I didn't feel like the A5+'s and ASW610 complemented eachother and it was hard to crossover when the A5+'s essentially stop around 120hz (eventhough the sheet says 50hz +-1.5db).

    So i brought it back for a partial refund + B&W P7's.

    They sound unlike any headset i've tried. You really don't have the notion you're listening to cans.

    B&W is legit. Good choice!

    Yeah, even given the steep price, i'm having no buyers-remorse with this one. Takes a while for it to open up though. Some reviews say it's actually a matter of days/weeks.

    But they already sound better than my A5's. That's for sure.

    You'll definitely see some change after several weeks. General rule of them for quality headphones, allow "burn in" time before judging them.

    P7's look like a work of art. Though I'd personally be hesitant to make that kind of purchase. Between all the leather, I wouldn't look forward to sweaty ears or the possibility of the headband tugging at my hair. Personal taste aside, those are absolutely beautiful cans.

    Very tasty looking build you've got there.

    What's that in the lower drivecage though? Akust something.

    It's a fan controller for the 230mm up front. The display shows RPM.

    I removed all the side panel I/O. Going to flip it over to the opposite side and install a large window that dips down to showcase the fan controller. I have the window but it will be a few weeks before I can get to the tools to cut the panel.

    Here's a close up of the controller:
