    well iam quite tall so its for ergonomic reasons, also my LCD is shitty TN panel so the viewing angles are quite bad if you are looking from above....and the tilt back function on this monitor barely works so thats why. actually i should have the monitor even higher...like +10cm cause like this i have my eyes at top bezel height.

    This is what I've always wondered as well. It should be actually more ergonomic to look slightly down at your monitor instead of straight forward or up. That's what I've heard somewhere at least.

    From an ergonomic standpoint you are supposed to be eye level with the top of your monitor in your sitting position. Food for thought when setting up your computers.

    Yea I don't have music playing much at my PC, usually stick to game/video audio if anything, but I still mainly use the speakers over my headset as in the last two months or so, it started to get really uncomfortable during extended use.

    I had them placed in front before I got these monitors, but doing that now is kinda awkward.

    Anyway, two pictures today. Firstly, a while back I tried this thing called tilt-shifting, lens-shifting, whatever term you prefer. And honestly, this is about as good as I could get out of trying. /sigh



    Secondly, a bit of a wet crisis is currently forcing me to have my setup somewhere else. I didn't feel like my computer would be safe where it was.
    Therefore, this is the current setup.

    I really like this char, will be on the lookout for a new one soon. I recently bought a cheap $50 chair from Wal-mart and I can't lean back on it without thinking the back will snap off

    My desktop and laptop are out of date to be quite honest. I'm currently saving up for a Macbook Air, not for gaming, but for DJing reasons.

    Desktop:
    i5 2500K
    16 gigs Corsair Vengeance
    250 gb SSD VisionTek Racer
    3 TB HDD
    1 TB HDD
    1 TB HDD ( I did a lot of video editing :P)
    msi r7770 gpu
    Razer Blackwidow Ultimate and Molten MMO mouse
    Dell Monitor + wallpaper of my oldest kitty Keoki :3
    cheap walmart chair and random wall art my BF found at a garage sale

    Once this desktop bites the dust, I'm probably going to stick with laptop only-- so I don't have any plans to upgrade my desktop.

    Well the high HyperX memories are in the way for a noctua dh14 (really only one I looked at ) and water seems better in every given way, except for the breaking part lol

    Perhaps a NH-U14S would do? Its smaller but still a very decent cooler.

    I'll give you a cookie if you manage to break the h100 at installation. It's literally impossible to damage unless you try to mount it with a sledge hammer.

    The radiatorfins are easily damaged though. Also, AIO coolers work better on Haswell.

    If you can install a CPU without breaking pins you should have no problems with an AIO.

    Try looking at the NH-D15 same performance as the DH-14 if not better. Noctua acutally cut part of the bottom fin stack on both sides so you can now fit high profile ram. Should check it out or like Zealo the NH- U14s works perfectly fine too.
