    I envy you, although only for a week more or so (gonna have to look into really quiet fans for these rads though)
    I too love the smell of game manuals. Why is it we do this? Next step will be licking them for that "Just about to be installed" taste. Honestly, i guess the geek inside has it's own sense, moreso than fast heart rate when your system does a belly flop (or a barrel roll... yeah, that's better). Yeah, when your system DOES A BARREL ROLL, you don't care what it sniffs of... unless it's burning... or smoke...

    As for hardware, it's only video cards and motherboard i really smell, but only because it's strong enough to grab my attention as i open the box.

    Also, am i the only person that regardless of anything else, will keep every single hardware component box "just in case" (and because it looks awesome to have boxes that contained several thousand pounds/dollars worth of stuff from over the years) unless i need to return it (and then i keep the new box if i'm getting it replaced or exchanged)?

    I do have an idea though. Next time you're in amongst people you know, but aren't sure of their interests, just say "I have BITS up my nose", and see who the true geeks in the group are. Or is it just me that would sit there and laugh on the inside as their fruitless attempts at insulting me just bounce off the outside of me? =D

    And what about that new mail order bride smell? I kid, i kid. (No, really ).

    It's only wet back there if you've got a leak. Yes, you, not your loop

    About the hoarding thing.

    I even have a little display, made a little construction with WoW game card, on top of it i put 2 Monster Rippers, 4 Red Bull cans and in the middle a V energy can. All empty ofc. Infront of that a display made of all WoW expansion and vanilla boxes, 2 deodorant cans, my mobile phone and my sunglasses on that.

    Grammar nazi? You didn't even spell your username right ... (;

    Anyway ... can't say I smell a lot of my stuff. I do, however, like that new t-shirt smell.

    Well this thread is going places. You know what my GTX580 DCII smelled like when I took it out of it's glorious styrofoam packaging? It was heavenly.

    My first 590 that I put in a customer's build smelt heavenly... Until I dropped the f''ker.
    Told them it broke in transit. Dishonesty? Yes, but I'll sacrifice moral values for $850...
