    Was this remedied with your new build?

    Well, I haven't gone to a LAN yet, but it is certainly smaller, lighter, and thus easier to carry.

    Spend an extra $20 on an i5 3570k and it's a well-balanced computer.

    There's no bottleneck.

    Also, this is not the thread for this. Please leave advice out of this thread.

    Your desk looks like it's made by the same folks who make mine. I hate mine though, lol, too small and crap.

    This is the desk specs: Link. (Second picture).

    They also just increased the price by £50... Lucky I got mine when I did! :P

    I still reckon I have one of the biggest dic--I mean desks around here. I'll admit it's not as stylish as Yohassakura's one, what with all those little steps/tiers <3

    Is it just me or are the colors on your TV super-vibrant? I mean the blues are really standing out, at first I thought you had been playing with your Digital Vibrance setting but then I saw you had an AMD card which doesn't feature that (I think).

    Also do you have speakers? I can't spot any in that photo. Or do you stick to your Fatality?

    I remember my #1 gripe with those slide-out desk things that come with most "PC" desks - the fact there's almost no room for the mouse left if you're using a large keyboard. For example, my mousepad measures something like 35cmx25cm wouldn't have the vaguest chance of fitting there :P

    Overall great build and tidy setup
    I remember back when CD racks were all the rage and the goal was to have towers of CD's arranged in beautiful shelves (mostly music albums :P).

    How do they sound? Are you using any kind of DAC or AMP with it?

    Not the sleeve color I'll be using, but I think it demonstrates quite nicely what the overall look will be for sleeves once they're on.



    ---------- Post added 2012-09-22 at 12:18 PM ----------

    This might be closer to what you'll see in the end. I'm not entirely quite sure what color combo to go yet...

    I think they may be a little bright and then my iPhones camera just makes it look more vibrant, while trying to auto calibrate for the lighting and what not.

    I generally use the TV speakers if I want to use speakers at all (using hdmi cable), but I generally stick with the headset, as I'm sure my neighbours wouldn't appreciate blasting metal a whole lot :P (The tv is on the shared wall).

    There's some room, (I don't tend to exaggerate my hand movements) but it is a little tight. The K90 has the G buttons on the left side so if they weren't there, it'd be fine

    P.s. I'm glad that you guys like it

    Nope, not that much into audio yet :P

    The sound is good & solid in my opinion, right amount of bass, very comfortable.

    Marest told me to try & do a panorama picture, I failed but here it is :P

    Also, Gunnar glasses arrived today.

    But I want to see the same way Adam Jensen does!



    It was on sale at CustomData for 50% off, so I thought why not.

    Looks neat!

    I'm surprised you actually made cable management on a server "room" o.o

    You can come do mine anyday, no matter how hard I try, it always ends up in a mess. Same way with my room.
