I've tried managing it all but i always end up pulling everything out, but i dont have a window in my case so i'd only be doing it to increase airflow.

I really can't be bothered updating my shit and cleaning my desk for photos.

 

Here is my old pcpartpicker post

 

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/JJQ7YJ

 

The only differences are now are that have a nh-c14 cooler on my cpu and it is overclocked to 4.2ghz and I got a blue cold cathode in.

 

2 Monitors.

 

ath-m50's through a fiio e10 amp/dac with modmic 3 attatched.

 

I will update this post in the future when I can be bothered.

Great cases aint they!

 

Very well designed internally, would say that the sound dampening foam does bugger all though.

no idea computer specs, it does what I need it to. Run with 2 monitors; 24" secondary with 36" ultra wide curved sexy primary :D

you must have spent a few quid on your set up, bout time you upgraded the monitor! ;-)

 

Am also a Razer fan boy, got the lefty Death Adder mouse and Death Stalker keyboard

 

5.1 surround sound on GX Gaming speakers, 7.1 on Sennheiser headset.

My fps in games like DayZ is around 40fps, Heroes and Generals around 100.

Am not much in the know about puter specs. Yours looks pretty neat :-)

Razer are the biggest con going, they overprice and their products are crap. I work in the computer industry and I have seen it first hand ha.

 

Yeah my monitors are only 60hz, I need to upgrade however I have a tattoo to pay for first.

 

I can play any game I desire at the highest settings hehehehehe.

I'd agree that they are mostly overpriced, but then so are all gaming peripherals. Having said that the Blackwidow used to be one of the cheapest mechanical keyboards on the market.

 

But they are (generally) not crap, there's a reason why the majority of pro's use Deathadders.

 

 

 

If you want something which really is crap, gaming headsets.

I got a mardi gras girl smoking on my right bicep.

 

This on my right arm just under my wrist;

Next one I am going for is a female stormtrooper surrounded by roses in the traditional syle of tattoo with red shading and thick black outlines. Completely custom and being drawn and done professionally by an award winning parlour.

And you were saying about stuff being overpriced eh? :P

 

Adam3088: The only reason most Pro's use certain peripherals is because their sponsors will require them to use the products given to them by said sponsors, doesn't mean they're any good.

 

In the case of razer, they are just too far behind the curve now, their products are just rehashed crap with whatever year it is at time of launch tacked onto the box, that they've been releasing for the past decade.

 

As for keyboards - the best mechanical keyboards still are and probably always will be the IBM Model M's - Modern mech's are cheap and tacky in comparison, amusing as an M can be had for a whopping £25 (I got mine for free, out of a recycling skip, courtesy of my dad over a decade ago) if you know where to look, when the supposedly cheap razer one is almost 4 times that.

Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0 anyone? They were and still are one of the most popular, no sponsoring there.

The reason most of them use Deathadders isn't so much down to sponsorship, it's because razer ripped off the ergonomics of the IE3.0 and stuck a higher dpi sensor in there (not that they'd be using a higher dpi).

 

Cheapest model M on ebay is more like £40, and you'll end up with horrible yellowed sh*t from the 80's. But it will have good switches, not sure if the compromise is worth it.

Intellimouse and g400 are the best mouses ever made.
