    Pretty nice setup you got there. Is that a Galant Desk from Ikea, by the way?

    Awesome! I just came back from Ikea. They had the wooden brown version and the glass version only available, so I went with the wooden one. The moment I saw it on your picture I was amazed by the height and space it had, so I immediately went there to check it out. Also picked up a chair called Markus and the assembling was easy for both. Happy day!

    Looks so much better with the additions! I got a question though. Is that fan controller good? I mean, does it live up to your expectations of it and how is functionality of it? I'm considering buying one, but can't really make my mind up :P

    I got a second mouse recently, mostly intended for my laptop. I decided to make use of it for a lil' bit. See how it goes.

    Deleted copy-paste spam, and someone didn't edit out that comment to now make it look out of context. I'd rather just you'd leave it.

    Yeah the fan controller is amazeballs! but it's around $60-$70 I think, I was lucky I got it as a bday present

    Pros:
    - 30w per channel which makes have multiple fans on a single channel functional - I have the push/pull on the H100 split over 2 channels cause Bitfenix fans dont seem to like the built in Corsair controller on the H100 itself. Plus my 2 side fans share a channel.
    - It looks neat cause it doesn't have dials
    - You can turn the display off if you want
    - Plus all the other pros that they usually mention on the box - Auto control, Individual temp monitors for each fan, sleeved cables etc

    Cons
    - The fan speed % slider is very touchy so its sometimes hard to get the exact speed you want, but its certainly not a deal breaker
    - The cost

    I know Bitfenix has a touch screen FC as well, but the thing that turned me off buying that, was that it was only 10w per channel and didn't sound too good at supporting multiple fans per channel. It is much cheaper tho, I think around $30

    Wow, thanks alot for that descriptive answer, Frelaziram! I really appreciate it
    It sounds like a really great fan controller! I'm definitely considering buying it even more now! Just still gotta decide whether or not it actually is necessary for my build. To be honest I don't think the price is that expensive. I mean, taking into account, it has a lot to offer and comes with a lot of functions and rather neat look and interface judging from the review i have watched.

    Thanks again!

    Sorry I also forgot to mention that the faceplate is slightly recessed and doesnt sit flush with the rest of the front of the case. This annoyed me at first, but it has now grown on me and I like it.

    Mouse: Logitech G9X
    Mouse Pad: XTRAC PADS Ripper
    Keyboard: Corsair K60
    That looks really neat! I've never seen that case before, interesting how the MB is completely upside down. That would probably be really good for GPU's without blower style heatsinks/fans cause the air can just rise and go out.
