    Probably a Galant, from Ikea.

    It's this Galant setup specifically. Look at you Americans and your fancy low prices...that was $249 here in Ontario!

    Bokeh has it's uses but it needs to be done carefully for good effect, and that's an example of doing it horribly wrong :S

    @Sphexy thanks for posting pics! Your hardware is alright (the laptop is nice!) but the photography...has a long way to go. I see what you tried to do there, but don't let the effects get the better of you

    Hahah thanks, I'm not even close to being a photographer, I used an HD camcorder that takes pictures. The quality was subpar so I went for the focused blur look.

    Kinda a shame being that the only real benefit to a Sabertooth is how it looks in a clean build ><

    It's really not that hard to hide your wires... just make sure you run everything behind the MoBo tray and only push through the amount of wire needed then zip tie it all up and you have a beautiful build. I would've opted for black memory however.

    Great overclocker
    Reliable, good quality components
    Specific features you might want
    Technically you do get lower temps on the board but granted it's nothing that really matters.

    Either way you're right, besides all that there isn't much extra you get for the extra ~$50 you pay (Sushi for two equivalent lol)

You can extended the H100's molex cable btw, just hold the 3pin with your left hand and pull the molex plug with your right hand.

    A shame with such expensive hardware, sleeved cables would look AMAZING on that Sabertooth.

    Out of interest, any of our Sabertoothers using the little auxiliary fans that come with it, and can say how noisy they are and if they make a noticeable difference?

    I did install and use them but I then disabled them since they're somewhat noisy. I honestly don't think it matters much to have them on.

    Looks better without them too, IMO. I think they are mainly for people that live in Death Valley that don't have air con anyway.

    I've installed those fans on my friends sabertooth, I suggested to not install them but he refused. Also they're pretty much noisy and he doesn't even care.

    They... make sound? Personally I haven't noticed mine at all and my build is pretty quiet in my opinion.
