    5.1 or 7.1 isn't equal quality

    Also if they're good enough for you then that's all that matters.

    Talking about working like a boss and headphones.. Holy crap I just realized that I've had my sennheiser hd 280 pro's for around 6 years now and they are still going as strong as ever. The head wrap part shows some signs of use but even that could be easily replaced since weirdly enough they still sell parts for these (it was already an old model when I bought it). Figured I'd invest for something slightly more expensive and paid like 119€ for them, which was a lot for me back then. Money well spent indeed!

    Definitely.

    Have no issues running 4K @ 60Hz SST with displayport 1.2, I'm very impressed with the colours with this panel.

    The only real problem with 4K is League of Legends crashing often, but that's due to half-assed coding.

    Oh you bastard, I'm still waiting for my 4690k to arrive. :-P

    Nice build, good choices all around, and the cable management isn't as bad as you make it sound apart from the CPU 8pin. The coloured cables really let it down visually, though. But not much a builder can do about that. :)

    Thanks! I ordered some red cables to replace the blue ones. I'll disassemble next weekend and tighten it up a bit.

    Was easy to install and very quiet. I haven't had a chance to push it yet though so we'll see how it does performance wise.

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M 2GN
    17" 1920x1080 LED panel
    Steelseries keyboard

    She is a beast and great for when I travel (heavy as shit though).

    Camera is a Nikon D3200 with a 18-55 mm lens.

    please repost with updated cables, very interested in what it looks like

    im considering that camera purchase in less than 2 months! do you like it? ive never used any DSLR or semi-pro camera even, but im looking for a nice camera to keep all my memories on and capture them nicely with great functionality but without too much playing with settings/photography knowledge. played around with the nikon d3200 in a store and with the wireless adapter that works on a phone for capturing pics remotely, i was almost sold.

    Hows the 675M treating you? Around the same time of the camera purchase im going to likely be in the market for a desktop replacement laptop, considering the Sager NP9377-S from xoticpc with the 120hz screen, SLI 880M, i7-4810mq, 2x500GB SSDs in RAID0, 2x1TB HDDs in RAID 0, and the works with the IC diamond, copper upgrades, screen calibration, etc with the 3 year warranty, coverage, and accidental damage protection. Hoping this gets me through 4 years of college gaming and such.

    Of course, there is the option of buying something for half that price with like a single 870m/880M to get me through roughly 2 years and then upgrade to a newer model down the line rather than trying to go balls to the wall from the get-go.

    A discussion not fit for this thread, however, keep up the great setup pics, everyone.

    My wonderful girlfriend bought me a new PSU as an early birthday present as my previous PSU made all kinds of loud fan noise.
    I am not positive about what model it was, but it was a Coolermaster PSU.

    I replaced it with a Corsair RM650, and it is incredibly silent thanks to the fan not even spinning until I start gaming, and even then it is inaudible.
    A problem arose though while I was putting it in, the computer would not turn on. For the life of me, I had no clue why. So I took it to a mate who owns a computer shop and he literally unplugged the cables from the PSU side, then plugged them back in and it worked. I have no idea why, maybe I didn't socket them properly.. Who knows. Just thankful I didn't blow up my motherboard somehow.

    Anyway, I really like the Corsair RM650, I made a video about the ordeal.
