Is that a mic in that rubbery fan contraption?

Their sound quality is exceptional, too. I believe they use the same mics, but here's a video that was recorded using the video version of essentially the same thing (Zoom ZQ3HD):
If I had to nitpick something it would be that H80. I know it's a proper cooler but tight custom loop with single 120 rad and a small tube res would stand out more. And the Fatal1ty logo has slightly too much white in it.
There is no doubt in my mind Marest will be heading that direction in the not so distant future. He was able to go the route recently that he did with the triple IPS displays, he'll likely go custom loop (if he wants to soon).
marest how did u get ur cable management so nice
Milk was a bad choice.

not to mention the FT02 is so good on its own that watercooling provides almost no benefit

I'm developing monitor envy, all you guys and your multi monitor setups. Here I'm stuck with a 19 inch standard definition Dell flat screen and some piece of shit Compaq 17" widescreen. I need to set aside some cash and get a couple 20-24 inchers. That sounds so dirty if I say it out loud.
Of course if you love form and consistency, buy 2 of the same cheaper display.
Then again, if you want IPS, then yes, it will cost a fortune.

This was my first computer build. I didn't like the clutter or the non-painted interior of the case. It didn't matter, because it is a HAF 912 and there's no plexi in those, but it still bothered me nonetheless.
I decided to do something about the interior. I didn't like the wires being different colors and I wanted the case to be more asthetically pleasing, so I decided to research some modding techniques. I ended up deciding to cut a massive hole in it and throw in some plexi, and do a lot better cable management, including sleeving everything that I could. And of course, paint.
Here's what happened.
(You can see a bit of glue on the top right of the plexi. Don't worry, it dries clear)
Initial testing at my parents house.
My brother in law was selling his GTX570, which was a massive upgrade for me. I went ahead and picked that up and installed. Tried to overclock. You'll see how that went shortly.
Despite my absolute best efforts researching, this is ultimately what will happen if you don't know what you're doing when trying to overclock. Let this be a lesson to all of you that are on the fence about it. Hint, it's not worth the 3 fps. It took a week to get the smell out of my apartment.
Which leads me back to my original and current setup.
