    :P Yeah it could be better. It was a lot better before I got my h100 which added 4 extra cords. The bottom cords slowly work their way back in over time from the back. I can push them back with ease, I just chose not to :P

    Sneak peak (specifications in signature). I wanted an Asus or MSi GPU but the companies here are stupid and none of them were in stock even though they showed being in stock so I cancelled it and got the Sapphire card which was my second choice anyways and it saved me money.

    I won't clutter the thread with anymore pictures until I'm done, just this one of the heatsink, the thing is huge! It's awesome though. Had kinda hoped for the white and black version but I Couldn't get a hold of it here unless I paid like $140.

    In light of all of the recent pictures posted by so many folks, especially seeing how clean some folks' computers are, (looking at you Marest) I opted to do some summer cleaning, since my mom wanted me to anyways. :P Thus I spent a couple hours cleaning today, there's still some mess that you don't see I want to take care of plus I want to do external cable management at some point, but this is seriously an improvement, I guess I'll show a picture from before the clean up for easy comparison.



    Basically did a lot of hiding/putting things away, dropped down to a single monitor and went back to just my two Samson Media ONE 3a studio monitors, because alone they both sound great, so I wanted to just make the desk look a bit more cleaned up. I also took the keyboard tray completely out since I only would use it to put random crap on and then the stuff would get pushed back and at some point fall directly onto my feet/the floor, heavy objects? Ouch. Plus I have a ton more leg room because of it and also because since I got rid of the subwoofer that goes with the Logitech speakers, I can stretch my legs more now! Yay! Also did some good dusting. :P

    Less gibber gabbering, enjoy the shots.

    Looking good.

    It is currently sitting on the floor in a corner where it will not get damaged. :P Same with the Logitech speakers, currently the Event TR5 studio monitor is hooked up to my keyboard as a mono out.

    I'm liking the cleanup, Deltrus! Though I recall you planning to replace your mobo with a more enthusiastic one, whatever happened to that? ;o

    Your desk is a lot tidier than mine is Deltrus :/ How is life on a single monitor treating you?

    Deltrus, I'm impressed. Your desk almost looks acceptable now.

    When I get the money, perhaps. Atm, I just don't really have the funds, and for now this motherboard is being acceptable. I have a very stable CPU OC, my RAM is running great, everything is fine except for some kinks with my GPU. So it's a matter of waiting, I guess.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone, I worked hard. :P Somehow Marest, I feel I will never get my desk perfect enough for you. ;p

    I do like the single monitor though, especially since it fits perfectly with my studio monitors about 6" to either side of it. Looks very clean and slick.

    Wonder what separate dimension you use for your legs tho.

    As long as you follow this:



    I've been sitting like that ever since I started gaming, despite parents/teachers/etc yelling at me to sit straight.

    Never seen this before, but when gaming, I tend to sit in the 3rd position lol. It is just more comfortable. Specially since I look DOWN at my monitor when sitting straight lol

    It puts less pressure on your spine (i think that's it in english). The important thing is to note that while at a 135 degrees, he still has his back straight, meaning, having the 135 degree position with a chair that won't recline like that is also bad =p (makes an arc and applies more pressure on certain points).

    But that's off topic =p, new monitor (benq xl2420t) pics incoming!

    Yes I heard about BenQ's new 120hz hero that is supposedly challenging (and beating) Asus's VG236H. It's been interesting to see the steps in 120hz. I still have my Samsung 2233RZ, the first-generation 120hz legend.

    Just got a new, acceptable looking desk. Thought I'd show my full set up.
