    That's a beautiful desk and you've really put it to good use, love the TV + ps3 and interesting how you've placed your PC so it's behind you when you're gaming. You really got me thinking about re-locating my PC further away from myself so I hear the noise less

    The FX-6100 was an...interesting choice....but hey, atleast Switch 810 kicks ass. What GPU you running?

    It looks like a cool desk. But me with OCD here, would you really sit like I'm guessing you are, based on the keyboard placement? Wouldn't that make you touch the side of the desk? I'd have to be having equal pressure on both sides if I was going to touch anything for that long, so I'd just rotate that 3-4°.

    Nothing wrong with the FX-6100. He's running the GTX 560 Ti.
    I discerned this from clicking his sig. :P

    My rig is a transplanted and severely upgraded CyberpowerPC. In fact, the only piece that is still from CP is the 6100. When I bought it I had little knowledge of computers and what I was doing, so I saw "6 CORE PROCESSOR!" and I was like... Sign me up! I never thought I'd get so enthusiastic about my build til I started upgrading, now I regret not building one from scratch and also some of the parts I've purchased. For instance the M5A97 mobo or the 560ti (just a month or so before the 680 came out), wish I'd have saved my money and boughten higher quality pieces. In the very near future I'll be picking up a 2500k and a Sabertooth Z77, and I'm debating grabbing a 670, or just waiting for the 700 series.

    I sit somewhat offset, with my left forearm resting on the desk. I actually drive trucks for a living so it actually feels kind of natural.

    I thought it might when I first set it up and was contemplating it, but it really doesn't. Its hard to really watch a movie or a sporting event while actually doing anything on the computer because of how close it is, but I generally just listen anyway.

    I'm almost done with my build just missing out on some Peripherals that haven't shipped yet and some cable sleeves next month.

    The specs!

    CPU: I5-3570k not overclocked yet due to some bug in the bios or setting i can't quite yet wrap my head around.
    GPU: MSI TwinFrozer II 560 TI
    PSU: Corsair AX 850
    Mobo: MSI Z77A-GD65
    RAM: Corsair vengeance 2x4 gigs
    SSD: Corsair force 3 120 GB
    HDD: Seagate 2 TB
    CPU cooler: Corsair H100
    Case: Corsair graphite 600T white

    The Peripherals that i ordered is:

    Corsair K90
    Corsair M90
    Corsair Vengeance 2000 headset

    I'm going to sleeve all the cables myself and atm it's going to be from MDPC since it's the best i've been able to find and they look very nice! I haven't decided on the color but i'm thinking half blue half black, not quite sure.







    And i would like to thank this forum because some of you guys are just great!

    Oh ye and this is what i came from 9 months ago http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ighlight=azome

    Even with the LEDs, that is darned sexy.
    Kudos. And nice colourmatching and cablework. How did you like working in the case?

    I love it! one of the biggest selling points was the opening mechanics just love how quick I can get into it and the looks of the overall case is great! only problem i have with it is that there isn't enough room to put a push-pull on the H100, something i can live with but i would have been nice. And about the cable work, well lets just say that it's great to look though the window but on the back it another story.

    Nah, got a pretty nice deal on the case/PSU that's why, thinking about upgrading it to a 670 at some point or just wait it out till the 700 (or what ever it's going to be named) series comes out.

    Red SATA connectors? Haven't seen those in a while xD

    I'm guessing that's the Arc Midi?

    *edit* looks at signature, herpderp

    My motherboard came with about 4 right-angled black SATA cables and two straight black cables. I don't have a window (yet) and the way my desk is my computer would have the window facing away from me anyway, so it isn't really a high-priority issue for me.

    Was best picture I could take.
    The two drive bay clamps were a cheap plastic that broke as soon as they were twisted to lock in place so currently not using them, they just sit there for now.
    Anyone know some good quality red clamps? (I prefer the screws then the twist/lock method)
    I tried shoving the wiring behind the drive bay, but it was going to warp the back side panel no matter how much I spaced them out, so I just bunched them up with some ties and placed the bundle in the bottom on the case.
    At the time when I was installing the graphics card I didn't realize how low I had set it and would have bumped it up a slot or two, but the small shields that you take out on the back are punch outs and I haven't found a way to put them back in, so instead of punching out another shield I just left it on the lower slot and took a look at the temperatures to make sure if the gpu was becoming too hot under load. (Reaches 70c so not worth making the case ugly.)
