    Zotac Z68-ITX Wifi

    For someone using the GT430 version of this board, how loud is the fan on the GPU? I'm planning on going water with this board and was hoping that it will be quiet enough, or have a possible waterblock or aftermarket heatsink available.

    i2500k itx build

    I would be most concerned about the fps in large engagements. Hopefully someone has tried to run this game at this resolution with sandy bridge. Also, is the 430 that big of an improvement over sandy bridge onboard? I was under the impression that it was about the same as entry level offerings.

    i2500k itx build

    Hey guys, I'm considering building a nice little mITX rig for portability. I'm sick of lugging my P182 back and forth to university. I've been eying up the SG05 for quite some time now and have had elaborate ideas come and go. The most realistic setup I would use at this point would be a Z68...

    critique my build?

    Hey there. Just curious as to why you chose an H67 motherboard with a K-series processor. If you are going to overclock, you will need a P67/Z68 chipset. If you don't want to overclock there is no need to buy the unlocked K versions of processors. Hope that helps.

    Display for Photographs/Photoshop/Films

    Look for a nice IPS panel, I personally have that U2311 and its amazing [coming from a few TNs], similar color to a CRT. Horrible for gaming though.

    Hated it - Show your Mice you thought was cool then soon after Hated it!

    I had a Razer Diamondback for the longest time until it started breaking down [still keep it with my netbook]. I got a G5 when this happened, and I can't see myself using the Razer again. The low profile-ness was kind of cool, but didn't really help and wasn't ergonomic at all. I'll be using my...

    Why the disgusting color scheme, honestly. Reminds me of a 15 year old P3 motherboard, lol.

    Awesome definitely keep us updated. I'm planning a build either in January or maybe a little later (looking @ Sandy Bridge).

    +1, thanks for the pictures thus far.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    I wouldn't want this personally because then it would be a pain to ever open the case, It would be hard to make it look nice (lots of cutting compared to drilling a few holes), and I MIGHT be putting my own window on the side anyway lol.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Can't wait to see results. I don't see how drilling new holes ~10mm away or something would be too challenging, meaning a normal rad will fit in the back.

    What would my perfect case be?

    For a while now I've been wanting to do a brand new build, and I was almost certain that I would use the Lian Li V354 once I heard about it (and saw it), but I'd like other peoples opinions on the matter. It will be housing a mATX mobo, i7 with a decent OC, 5870, and other essential components...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    For someone who has the case, can they measure the space between the front fans and the side panel? It looks like it would be wide enough to stick a res in.

    Corsair Graphite Series 600T mid-tower gaming case

    Sorry for not reading through 40 pages, but how easy is it to fit a few rads in this guy?

    Cheapest processor for descent gamining experence on battlefield2

    bf2 doesn't need a modern cpu at all really, maybe a decent graphics card if you want to max it out.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    @Kaizerdan. Is there enough hangover left on the sides of the cards between the PSU for a full cover waterblock?

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Yeah I guess I could just remove the drive bays altogether, but I did kind of want at least a slim DVD drive. Oh well, now that I think of it I really don't use them enough anyway.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    They make a full cover block for the mobo. For the GPU(s), you would need blocks for them too. But don't expect to have an internal loop with all of that.

    Hmm, after looking @ that picture I'm starting to have doubts now actually. I thought there was more space on the bottom.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Could someone measure the distance between the bottom screw holes for the front fans and the floor of the case? Thanks.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    I don't know it looks awfully close. I think I would just need to cut off the stupid overhang from the 5.25" bay from what I can tell.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    xspc rx240 would probably fit with a few yate loons and some cutting.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Just thought of something. Can someone measure the distance between add in cards (preferably a GPU) and the PSU? I hope theres enough space for a GPU waterblock there.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    might have to do a little bit of cutting on the hdd or cd bay, but i'll fit it right in the front somehow. that along with the part bradmax mentioned should workout fine.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    I'm thinking of a similar design, except for now I'm just going to be putting a 240 rad in the front. Maybe later on I'll add a GPU to the loop and mount some sort of rad on the top [wonders if a 240 will fit up there with some modding].

    Dell U2311H

    I love this thing. I ordered it around July and received it in August I believe. So far it's been amazing for color representation compared to my old TN panel at least. It brings back the enjoyable feeling that a CRT brings, lol. I don't have any noticable color cast or anything on it. Once it's...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    no way a single rad would work well. you'd need at least twice the surface area of that i'd say for either the gpu or cpu alone. you "could" do it, but read up about other peoples setups and you'll get the idea of what to expect. it would basically be a waste of money to do that since it would...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    Why no way? The measurements are close but it might fit. I'm also interested in them if someone has the time.

    Does anyone own a PC-V354?

    Bump as I'm curious as well. I have similar plans, although I just want to put a double rad in the front of the case (for the time being).

    Is anyone else excited about this thing possibly coming to fruition? It would totally be my next phone if its GSM. Not much is known about it yet. Over at engadget they have a few pictures up. Sorry if it's been posted already didn't see it...

    I really don't think you'll have a problem with PSU temperatures. That add on will really look awkward too IMO.

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    This is exactly what I was thinking, I would really like to try it out (need to get some money together first for a new system, it's about that time.) I was thinking of putting a 120.2 in the front in a push configuration and maybe drill holes to mount another 120.2 on the ceiling if possible...
