    Evo 212? Nah man it's a Mugen 4.

    Also, since the photo of my setup with stock cooler and Antec 300 slipped to previous page, here's the link.

    I'm not even sure when I last updated my current gaming rig stats, so here we go:

    Case - Cooler Master Storm Scout II Advanced mATX Black
    CPU - Intel I5 2500K @ 4700 Mhz
    Cooler - Akasa Venom Voodoo
    GPU - 2x Nvidia MSI GTX 670 OC Twin Frozor SLI
    Motherboard - ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3
    RAM - G-Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz (9-9-9-24)
    Soundcard - Asus Xonar D2X
    HDD - A mix of various 2-3TB SATA3 hard drives (8TB space total)
    PSU - Corsair TX850W
    Keyboard - QPad MK-85 (Cherry Black)
    Mouse - Logitech G600
    Headset - Takstar HI2050 + Zalman clip on mic
    Speakers - Logitech Z680 5.1, with replaced QED wiring
    Monitor - 42" Toshiba XV505 (Will be switching this out when I next have a decent amount of spare cash for a pair of Qnix 2710s or the like)
    OS - Windows 7 64-Bit

    I'll grab some pictures when I can be bothered.
    The Tower: To some, it symbolizes failure, ruin and catastrophe.
    To others, the Tower represents the paradigms constructed by the ego, the sum total of all schema that the mind constructs to understand the universe. The querent may be holding on to false ideas or pretenses; a new approach to thinking about the problem is needed. It may be time for the querent to re-examine belief structures, ideologies, and paradigms they hold to.

    System build update, still need to get cable sleeves or Corsair pre-sleeved (not sure whether the reds o blacks or mix them both up). Also the side window needs to be made, here is the design I sketched up in photoshop - http://i.imgur.com/UPNskmz.jpg

    Looks like you painted it with a brush without disassembly. I see colordifference due to lack of primer, and parts missing paint.
    Maybe take it apart, sand it, primer it and then buy a carpaint spraycan and give it a workover. I'll bet it looks allot nicer.
    You can even click off the covers of that DVD unit, and paint them. I did it with my CM690 back when.



    @Suprm, although big ATX cases are no longer my thing, that looks really tight.

    The front is far from done, I'll give you that. It was done without disassembly but that is because the clips of the front cover refused to budge no matter how much force I used on them. I will definitely re-do the front, it's on the agenda. Originally only the cover clips were painted and the rest was stock color but painting the whole front white was sort of an idea I had while doing the rest.

    I don't think he actually thought it was a 212 EVO but was trying to make a joke, not 100% what the joke was but that's my belief anyways.

    Well my first ever PC build, thanks to MMO-Champs Upgrade section for suggestion on what to spend my budget on. Only just got round to taking pics, and not brilliant ones at that. Could do with a lot more cable management, but the XFX 850W managed to get hold of for only £50!!!

    It's got a lot more tidy since I first built it a few months ago, but as I changed the PSU, GPU and Cooler (from a GTX 660, XFX 450W and a Evo 212 for slightly more overclock) I thought may as well do a bit better on cables, as they were literally all in front of the motherboard.






    The mouse was a very quick fix and shall be being replaced. As was the monitor (27" IPS Viewsonic) too. The fan controller was kind of a must for cosmetic reasons, a disc drive in the top bay was putting a lot of strain on the cabling that comes down from the top panel... where as this Fan Controller was the right coloring, and could fit in the top slot to rid myself having to use a grill panel that comes as standard. The Blu-Ray drive is another quick fix as sold my PS3 and waiting on a PS4... Needed something to play my Blu-Rays obviously.

    Not the usual in here, but it's my baby and I'm proud since it's my first build. Hoping next year to start a new build and give this to my GF. Either that or sell this, as this was solely a "get used to building yourself" rush kind of build.

    That is a very funky keyboard you got there Ange!

    @Majesticii thanks man, still needs work done on it but its getting there. Shame I didn't go custom loop (was going to get the XSPC Raystorm in RED) but il wait for that when I do the next system overhaul in about 2-3 years time heh.

    I still sometimes wonder if i should've gone with the tenkeyless version aswell. But then again, i use the numpad often enough that i'd notice it missing.

    The A7x's fit my needs just perfectly. I really like them for listening to music and I can not recommend the Adams more highly!

    Come a time I have the cashflow, those will be one of the purchases I've most looked forward to. Heard them at Sam Ash and just fell in love.

    I currently have the much cheaper, though still great sounding, Samson MediaONE 3a studio monitors, but thinking of bumping up to the 4s or 5s for slightly higher levels of bass and volume.

    There are decent solutions for us as well!
