Just got the last of my cooling parts today. Will post pictures when I finish my overclocking this weekend... But, here's my specs(I also use this thing for writing code).

Mobo: MSI Z97-GD65
RAM: G.Skill Ripjawz X 2133 8GB
SDD: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB

So apparently I need a new motherboard....again. Stupid MSI makes shitty products. It's not cost effective to buy another Z79 1155 board so I am going to get an Asus Sabertooth Mark 2 LGA 1150 Z97 board and an i7 4790K in the next while. I just sold my GTX 760 so I will pick up the board in a couple of weeks and the processor after that. Overtime at work will justify the investment while still allowing me to put away my usual savings. Pondering whether I should get a new case as well. No point in having multiple SATA 3 drives and only 2 ports plus my new R9 290 isn't running in PCIe 3.0 mode. Might as well upgrade and use my hardware to it's fullest now. The USB3 header is dead on my current board and a few of the USB ports are fried which I need.
I am also planning on replacing the Wind force cooler on my card with the NZXT Kraken setup, 75 degrees on load is rough on my room temperature.
Updated photos of my setup.
Awaiting a laptop (G750JZ) for my mobile needs aswell, hopefully coming tomorrow

I'm on an 18.4" Clevo P180HM (Malibal) laptop, i7 sandy bridge (2760QM I think), 8GB ram, single GTX 560M video card, 128GB SSD for system and WoW (with a 1TB for large data). So far, still fine for raiding, we'll see in WoD with the new models. Usually I upgrade every 2 years, this one will see at least 3, so I'm pretty happy about that.
I use a Logitech G710+ (cherry brown switches), which just goes on top of the laptop's keyboard, and a logitech trackman marble trackball.
Usually have the whole setup on a lap desk (ie a rectangular sheet of nicely finished plywood), but the cool part is it doesn't really matter where I am, all I need is internet and power and I'm good.
How are you going to possibly cool that thing?

Custom watercooling I suppose would be one way, but then you'd need to put that somewhere so the point in this "case" seems rather odd But good job
Also from the looks of it, there seems to be fans going down below the case, guessing he won't keep anything else underneath it
There are fans on the front corners as you can see on the last picture. That "thing" keeps itself pretty cool even on long periods of playing.
This computer is on his living room, on a tv table.
I wanna see more as well, that thing is downright sexy. Would love to be able to slap one together myself
