    Googling those, I think you're right. I use the passive P4's for my home theater. The knob and light give away that they're probably P5+'s.

    How is the sound from the P5+? How's the bass? Do you play the Witcher 3? if so, how is the sound volume? I've had issues with it being super damn quiet.

    Yup, Audioengine A5+'s. I pair them with an S8 subwoofer. Witcher 3 sounds great to me with the combo and the bass is great.

    Fans are quiet as they are all PWM. It only get loud if I'm stress testing or running a benchmark CPU driven.

    Yeah it's going to be a bit of a roulette game once I get them open, but if they're all solid, they should be amazing. Buddy has had one for a while and it's fucking beautiful.

    edit: he's right too, these are fuckin amazing lol

    The card in the bottom slot is just a spdif bracket feeding off the onboard sound. I also purchased a usb3 header to female type A adapter so that I no longer have to run the usb3 front panel connector out the back on my case.
    I really wanted to get a 6700k and the D14 cooler but my asrock z77 board was giving me lots of problems so I had to order the final pieces ahead of schedule.

    Not much of a hardware change but more of desk update, I'm sure there was a thread on just show your desktop however can't seem to find it if there was one.

    Old desk setup;


    Setting up the new one;







    Quite happy with the new desk, looking into a new speak amp next year after my trip to japan but the this looks better and has more usable space with that extending section of the desk and the awesome cable trunking thats part of the structure for cable management.

    Desk is Ikea malm with pullout.

    Every time I see someone post with an IKEA desk it makes me want to go there more... we have a HUGE IKEA store nearby, actually.

    In fact, it's the one WOWCrendor loves going to...

    I've tried chatting with Crendor, but he's honestly not one to reach out in response to fans much at all. I've gotten a word or two with him and he liked one of my video responses to one of his Q&A videos a few years back, he posted a smiley face... =/

    "Fishing with DeltrusDisc's dreams" more like. :P

    That monitor is the AOC Q2963PM, its 2560x1080 and was one of the few 21:9 monitors out before this year, got that well before any of the 3440x1440 monitors, think I've had it like for year and a half now at least.

    Lol well this desk was perfect to me, cable management built into the structure which is awesome and the extending sectioning which oddly enough was my requirement for a desk plus no wobble, the cable management part was a huge bonus.

    You should just stalk Wowcrender and have a impromptu interview at Ikea.
