    using these with cable ties under my desk to manage the cables, also works great inside the computer too.

    the adhesive is pretty decent as well

    Made an upgrade today that was a long time coming as it kept getting pushed back for one reason or another, From this:



    To this:






    I am able to get some games to run like this windowed. I would like to find a way to set up eyefinity at 4360x1440 to make it work with more games, but I doubt it is possible at this point.

    How easy was it to work in that case? Been thinking of doing a build with one.

    Edit: Also is there room to hide a ssd in there, as I want to throw a ssd and 2 hdd in it.

    Well other than having to tear out the CD drive bay and the top half of the hard drive bay not to bad (to fit my h100i and video card). I would just highly recommend a modular psu cuz things get tight pretty fast. other than that its a fairly nice build and i can move it around much easier than my old haf 932ft

    Just bought this beauty for work (finally my own desk!), a CM Storm Quickfire TK with MX browns. Love how minimalistic and simple it is, no gaming bling and a nice weighty quality feel to it. The keys will definitely fade over time but I'm not too concerned, just wanted a sturdy mech keyboard to type on. For the price it's nice.

    Back in Denmark to study CCNA/Other network stuff

    Went to IKEA to get a new trashcan/some kitchen stuff, ended up buying a new table for ~£80. Oh well!



    Travelling back to Greenland in a little over a month.

    Well I figured that, I was more curious if there was actually anything something had to have to qualify as "gaming" but we can take that off-topic somewhere

    It's about 6 years old by now :P

    A new wallet would be nice, but then again I could buy a Hyper212+ for the money if I were to get a nice wallet

    Yeah it's a bit silly the more I think about it. I have so many boxes lying around my room with "gaming" stamped on them and my folks are all "stop buying gaming stuff!" and I'm like "...but it's just a plain keyboard, honest.".

    You can always get a lot of stuff for the money you could spend on other stuff :P
    Upgrade it before stuff actually starts falling out of your wallet (I was dumb enough to wait that long).

    I got my babies today! It was worth saving up!

    Click for big


    Not 100% happy with the headphones but Amazon had them on sale + I had a coupon. They're very clean but don't do bass very well. Still, very very pleased overall with this setup.

    My Origin friends list is full but hit me up by PM if you want to build a city with me.

    You have to give headphones time to break-in though. Don't judge cans within atleast 30-40 hours, however it can take weeks before they open up completely.
    I'm still hearing some subtle differences in the B&W P7's.

    I don't like the look of the build quality of those cans though. Sound may be good, but the buildquality looks plasticy and unfinished.
