I'm not satisfied with the cablemanagement ... hate the cables on the right from the Sentry 2. :/
Need to upgrade my peripherals. After I cleaned up my room in a few days I'm going to take photos from my desk and additional from my rig.
Getting my new GTX680 Twin Frozr OC today, very excited. Will post a picture of my complete rig later today.
Can't help but notice how most people have their cases on the left side...and against a wall or something similar and the window is also on the left side of the case so it serves no purpose at all....

Worked on the first boot, going to install OS, now I'm going to get some well deserved food :P
The build is made to be used as a HTPC/LAN rig, Dreamhack is in 2-3 days so it's perfect timing. (Except I don't know how the hell I'm going to carry it all the way to Jonkåæøping, Sweden from Denmark... Tetris/Marest do you have a car? :3)

What a surprise!
Got greeted by a bsod, when I rebooted it my SSD couldn't be found, it's under a year old so I hope I can get a replacement. I tried different sata ports, cables, power cables, my friend's laptop.
Wooo, 5400RPM boot here we go!
Tetris, thats the guy I'm living with's little brother :P
Nice setup, but do you really sit that close to a 40" 1080p monitor?
The picture makes it look closer than it seems, When I'm sitting there, I am about 2.5 feet away from the monitor, I know that is still really close, but the picture to me atleast makes it looks like I sit like 1 foot away. Also a lot of the time I lean back with my feet up off to the side and put my g13 on my lap and naga on the desk to the left of me to play, putting me further back.
It's still awfully close and considering that the pixel density is extremely low (lower than an old 1024x768 19") I would recommend a monitor change. I mean, even at 1.2 meters away, which is 40% further away than the average 80cm, one can clearly see individual pixels. You got a nice setup no doubt, but that 40" kinda ruins it for me. But hey, if it works for you then great!
