    I'm not much of a fan of the smell. But the sound of moving fans on a new build. "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"

    This. Nothing can compare to the smell of a new manual, I don't even care what it says, just the smell.. Or like, I've got this metal box with like 20 gameboy games in it, boy, if you open that, pure nose-gasm.

    If you add me on Steam, Skype or whatever program/client I share my info for, please write something to identify you in the "Dude/gal wants to join your club"-message. Just so I know that an actual human is on the other end :P

    Opening my new PC from its package sure was nice, what was not so nice, was my old one when it overheated and i could smell the stench of electrical smoke 3 days after i had tossed it in the trash....
