    If concerned entirely about looks, acetal.

    I'd like to raise an addendum to have vinyl in place to match sabertooth board aesthetics - second?

    I would hate to have to try and sleep with that PC in the same room, looks good but my god the lights.


    Update: Ordered blue sata cables and going to order blue/black ram and an MSI 7770 (possibly) to start color matching my case components. The red Viper 3 ram and Red ASUS 7750 is clashing badly, (with my blue motherboard) now that I can actually see inside my new case cause of the window. Never cared before but now that I can see inside the case its setting off my OCD. New Color Scheme will be Blue and White inside a Black Case. See Album

    I'm wondering if I could just strip the heat spreaders off my ram and maybe reskin them?

    I would try upgrading to at least a 7850, the 7770 won't give you much of a boost. =/

    Not looking for a boost, meerly a color match, and I had wanted to get a 7770 instead of the 50 in the first place, the 50 was just on sale at the time. Now the 70's are on sale and the MSI one is black with blue accents which will match what I'm trying to do in my case.

    I got myself a bunch of drill-bits and stuff, so I deriveted the 600T's 5.25" bay and drilled holes for mounting the D5 pump-res combo on. The result? Pretty neat.



    This may be just a test-run. I'm undecided whether to build the particular setup being considered in the 600T or the 650D; the first has more watercooling potential, but will be a lot more work before I can call it complete. The 650D hasn't been touched, and I don't have to with the rads I've planned from the start, so I'm undecided on this one.

    ALL THE PIXELS.



    I still need to find a dual monitor stand so I can set the ASUS MW221U's up properly, but they're not available in Greenland. The closest I can get to that is a single monitor stand for $150 each.

    Specs:
    AMD FX-6300 w/NH-D14
    Gigabyte GTX 670
    AMD Radeon HD 5450
    Gigabyte 970A-UD3
    Cooler Master Test Bench v1.0
    Antec Earthwatts 550w PSU
    128GB Kingston HyperX
    1TB External USB 3.0

    Peripherals:
    1x Achieva Shimian 2560x1440
    1x Xerox XM7 1680x1050
    2x ASUS MW2212 1680x1050
    1x Samsung S22B 1920x1080

    QPad MK-80 MX Blue
    Logitech G400
    Mionix Sargas 900 mousetable

    Only noticing very light backlight bleeding on the Achieva Shimian, can only really see it when I make the monitor go full white. Other than that I haven't noticed any dead pixels or dust.

    Tidied it up as much as I could without spending the entire day moving stuff around. (Even if I wanted to, I've got back problems)

    The girl is my niece, something she hung up when I was in Denmark I think.

    What?! Backlight bleeding is noticeable in dark settings, not white ^^

    I prefer an enclosed case, myself /shrug

    And I think he might be talking about either IPS glow or LED-clouding.

    Well my whole "wooo lets remove the drive cage and stack drives on top each other like they're pancakes" idea went out the window as soon as I got my 3rd drive -_-
    While separating the drives with bits of sponge worked out wonderfully because my HDD became almost completely silent, the whole stack toppled into my 120mm bottom intake when I wasn't around. FFFFFFFFFFUCK. Luckily the fan seems to be alright.

    So the cage went back in...





    ...and strangely enough, the issues I was having with the side-panels not fixing on properly also went away. Apparently the drive cage is helping to support the case structure, keeping it 100% straight. Who knew?
