    It's a decent PSU, if I were to buy one today I would probably buy something else, like a Corsair. But back then I didn't earn all that much and my uncle who is a top of the line tech guy recommended me this PSU since he had only had good experiences with it. While not the best it has worked for 3 years, so I don't mind it. I hope it will bring my cpu to 4Ghz though
    And I am loving the table right now, I used to hate it, but since I moved around in my appartment it is now really great, allows me to have 2 monitors, a TV and a lot of work space for studies, I suppose you know how much it increases productivity having more than one monitor, let alone 3, it's awesome!

    Thanks, I did what I could with the massive overkill of cables and the table is a table I had special made, it was originally made for housing 8 people LANs but now it's just a huge ass work table!
    Oh Energon.

    Boy am I still haunted by the constant coil whine, when a PSU is 75% cheaper than others on the market you know there's something wrong -.-'

    Energon is a really bad PSU.

    Let's remember to keep it slightly on-topic, shall we?

    Done enough pictures of other stuff I have. Don't think I ever really took a picture of my headphones. First picture from me here that is also noticeably larger than normal. (Hence posting a thumbnailed link.

    Chose to try out a deeper depth of field. :'3

    How do you feel about the Corsair K90 Drunken?
    Considering K90 and M90.

    Funny. I never had a problem with it, no coil whine no nothing. There are different people behind different versions of the PSU though, so that might be why some of them are bad. But I will stop this from derailing, will probably post something in the future on the overclock! And try to find a way to not make the h100 do 100% startups..

    Yup

    Was thinking about taking the heat-sink off (if it is possible) and applying some Prolimatech PK-3 thermal paste to it. Should I even bother...?

    You certainly could and also clean the fins and fans.

    Only warning I have though is... GPU heatsinks are a BITCH to put back on, in comparison to a lot of other internal computer hardware work. So be prepared with time and patience on your side.

    Cool, cool. I've taken off a few GPU heat sinks and cleaned / reapplied paste before and they are a pain. I will find some time to do that tomorrow. Maybe I can find a video in the mean time...

    It fits fine in the HAF 912. If you had the extra hard drive bay installed you have to remove it. Attached is a handle so you don't have to touch the PCB at all. It is a 1k dollar card :P

    I think you need a new chassis to go with that beast.

    no, mine sit at 30c idle, and maybe get up to 75-80c full load
