    Drew, your computer is upside down. When did you go to a SilverStone case?

    I got a new toy, finally upgraded to a real mousepad! The little wrist rest is so smooth and soft.

    Which version of the DT 990's did you get? I've got the DT 990 Premium 32 Ohm, and I absolutely fucking love them (I got them summer of 2012 and they are still going strong with many hundreds of hours put into them (if not thousands, I listen to a lot of music with them).

    Either way, DT 990's are amazing, you should enjoy them a lot!

    What are you driving them with? I'm using a Xonar Essence STX soundcard for mine, and it has worked wonderfully so far (it was a tremendous improvement over the default soundcard on the motherboard, also, I like that it has a 6.3 mm headphone jack slot, so that I can use the 6.3 mm jack with my DT 990's instead of the 3.5 mm)

    Pretty sure his audio setup is the Schiit Modi for DAC and then Magni for headphone amp. Really nice American-built audiophile hardware.

    The MacPro is clearly not an iMac, which are overpriced and so are their laptops. You can get more from a Windows laptop for a lot less and iMac's use freaking laptop hardware, which is a terrible idea.

    Rennadrel, no one was talking about the laptops. At least not initially.

I will have more respect for Apple when they let me start installing Mac OS X on my own computers rather then their crappy systems like the iMac with obsolete hardware.
    You already can. Gigabyte and some Asus MoBos can be used, as well as GTX 7xx series and Rx series AMD cards. Bit of research, and you will know this.

    Yes, and I don't give a flying fuck, since I was specifically talking about the Mac Pro. Which, by the way, you called an obsolete and overpriced trashcan among things...

    Did you have any more stupid things to tell us? Like the sky is blue and the grass is green? We know these things already, but clearly you didn't know what's in the Mac Pro.

    I'm normally against Apple, but I have to say that is one fine piece of hardware.

    Wouldn't see that baby sitting in your stereotypical 14 year old apple fan-girls bedroom.

    There was no other place to neatly fit a reservoir that would look nice, it will look a lot nicer when I finally get the actual coolant I intend to use in it

    ...sorry I don't support companies who only a few years ago helped create a generation of ignorant computer users who think still think that macintoshes "just work" and that they don't have viruses. I will rue the day when knowing anything about the macintosh OS will become a sort of a mandatory thing for me. I'm a computer science student but this company just deserves to go up in flames, they've done nothing but create misconceptions about the computer world and help build cults for their products.

    Tell me, in their newest creation passed down by god to moses himself, this trash can radiator, who benefits from having the video card split into two physical components besides apple themselves, who are the sole providers of replacements for these monstrosities?

    While I understand your concerns, you might want to drop the hyperbole.

    Anyway, allow me to provide you all with some slight amusement while presenting my 7 year old "gaming" setup:

    http://s30.postimg.org/5qailiv29/DSC06448.jpg

    http://s30.postimg.org/vxbphhdc1/DSC06449.jpg

    - Core 2 Duo @ 2.5 Ghz
    - 4GB @ 667 Mhz memory
    - 320 GB HD @ 7200 RPM
    - GeForce 8600M GT

    Peripherals are to die for though :P:

    - Aivia Osmium mechanical keyboard with rubber dampeners installed to lower noise
    - Roccat Kone Pure mouse w/ Roccat Taito mouse pad
    - 25" HP 1080 monitor 5ms

    Extra:

    - 3 empty Axe sprays holding my laptop elevated above ground
    - 1 huge fan blowing air during the summer
    - CAT7 Ethernet cable and CAT6 wall-to-modem cable for maximum error reduction from today's endless wi-fi sources

    Yes...that is a VGA cable.
