Also since im having it about noctua, it doesnt seem like theyre only bringing a black version for industrial purposes out.

    Those Audioengines sure look nice.

    Wish more little DACs were made, the more the merrier and the more the prices drop! :P

    Only two issues I can think of with that... unbalanced outputs for speakers and no real headphone amp on it. >_<

    So my 290 arrived last week:



    I went to install it and...



    Damn, rookie mistake. Fast forward to yesterday morning and this arrived from Amazon:



    After the case swap:



    Cable management is a lot easier in this thing so I tried to keep it as clean as I could:




    I added some AF 120 LEDs in the top to try and add some subtle lighting, might be a bit too subtle, might try and sort something else out another time:



    Closed up and powered on:



    Since this card allows me to use 4 monitors I brought the monitor I replaced with the 27" out of retirement, shot of the full setup:



    Night shot:



    And in case someone calls me out on it, yes the monitor on the top right is upside down and yes that is intentional (this way the viewing angle is better and the power button is on top instead of on the monitor below it).

    For now the PC is kind of hidden away between the desk and the bed so not taking advantage of the window and such, but I have a plan in mind to sort out a better desk that should sort that out and hopefully won't take too long to happen.

    (sorry for cell phone quality pictures, but I don't often need a camera so that is the best I have.)

    Nice upgrades, 750D? Looks good (and big)

    I like the looks of that 750D.. Makes my R4 feel .. inadequate ... and im sure there are a few xCoin miners that are jelly of that card. Anyone have any insight as to why miners are all over the AMD cards, and not nVidia ones (from what I've gathered so far, just learning about the whole coin mining thing, as I don't pay much mind to.. "Fads").

    In short Nvidia cards don't yield anywhere near the same as equivalent AMD card.

    I'm guessing its the raw Compute values they have vs NVidia. AMD / ATI has always held a solid spot in the "Professional" bracket, with the Fire Pro and such, so, would make sense, I 'spose.

    Can ask (comment) more into this in this thread.

    It's more about power consumption, or so I heard.

    No it is not, Nvidia cards use less power but CUDA is not as good for SHA256 or Scrypt hashing.

    Well I read a bunch of forum posts where they were calculating profit from power usage perspective, not about calculations performance.

    I tried a few other configurations before I settled on this one, including setting up the two 1440x900 monitors vertically at either side of the main one but it wasn't really practical with this desk (nowhere to put the 1600x900, I could try it above the main one but that seems too high) and eyefinity seems a little broken atm, the one that is at the top right now kept disconnecting and reconnecting every few seconds as soon as I activated it, until I reverted back to extended desktop (I hope it is just the mantle beta drivers causing it).

    So far this seems to be the most practical configuration with this desk (though I still might try something else) and the monitors are so mismatched due to these being just what I had to hand, before I got the 27" I was using the three others for eyefinity. Though the temptation is there to at some point get two more monitors the same as the main one (the version with DisplayPort though).
