    Corsair Obsidian Series 800D

    Hey, I have an Ikea desk. ;) But it was on the floor... and I'll admit I was probably too rough, but only because with one hand pushing down to keep it from coming up off the ground, and the other lifting on the panel as described in the manual... front panel wouldn't budge. :) There are...

    Corsair Obsidian Series 800D

    Just bought an 800D for $223 at Microcenter... couple thoughts so far (as I'm waiting for the rest of my parts to come tomorrow): - The front panel? Maybe I'm weak as hell, but it was not easy to remove. That leads to... - The bottom dust shield? Broke in half as I pulled the front panel...

    ME1 for starters

    My opinion, ME1 had much more political intrigue in the plot... the moral decisions by themselves seemed to have more weight to them than in ME2. ME2, at least for me (played both paragon and renegade runs) was Renegade = gigantic ass... but not much else. I also like the uber-customization...

    What do you guys do with your old systems when you upgrade?

    First build finally done! What ya think?

    Nice job, clean wiring... can't say I'm a fan of the case, but the colors you chose (and how you painted them) work nicely.

    Ikea desk gallery

    Love the organized chaos... you did a good job on cabling because for all the gear that you have, don't really see all that much of the cables at all. With all that stuff, it could get really really bad.. nice job.

    Why don't more people mod air ducts? (Both real and ghetto-fabbed)

    @echn111: What case is that by the way? As far as air duct modding goes, yours is actually growing on me quite a bit. The blue shroud fits that rear fan perfectly and the blue plastic fits in much better with the surrounding components than any cardboard mod that I've seen. Only thing I would...

    Antec Solo

    I own a SOLO and a P182b... both built like a tank. I especially like the SOLO's glossy finish, it's going to house a HTPC one day for me and definitely won't look out of place next to the other components. And FYI, a 120mm fan has been shown to fit in the 2x92mm housing. At least I...

    Whats the best way to arrange 3 2007fps and a 3007wfp?

    You could also buy an additional 2007 and arrange it with two 20" in portrait stacked on top of eachother to each side of the 30". :)

    Why don't more people mod air ducts? (Both real and ghetto-fabbed)

    Agree with the previous poster, I think a lot (not all of it) has to due with how ugly it is... especially if you've got a nice window with uber cathodes, you probably don't want to see a janky piece of cardboard in the middle of it. That said, if you don't have a window... you have no...

    So I used an Intel Stock HSF for GPU Cooler...

    That's incredible... what's the weight like in terms of when the card is installed? Does it seem like the card holds up to the weight well, ie. no bowing, warping, etc.? Kudos on the temps and the idea.

    post pics of ur p180/p182/190s

    Good job on the cables. Is that a passive CPU cooler? I used to have a system with a Ninja passively cooling my CPU, but that cooler in there makes that Ninja look ---tiny---.

    What CPU cooler is that? And this is just kidding but... black case, black keyboard... white mouse? Sorry, that's the OCD in me. :)

    Does Mass Effect ever get any less boring?

    So far, I'm particularly annoyed that they took out a lot of the customization aspect of weapons. Adding the different upgrades, I really liked that... switching them to powers was just meh, imo.

    Zagg Protector

    I like them, installation is a little tricky but I feel safer with them on my devices. I've tried cheaper ones from like the AT&T store (for iPhone specifically) and hated them. There might be better ones out there, but I've always been happy with the invisibleshields that I've gotten.

    Need help with a decision

    Seems like they'd be due for a bump pretty soon maybe. Personal opinion, I've never really been a big fan of the mini... if I had 700-900 to spend, I'd build my own and hack it, best of both worlds.

    Suggestions for a Cheap Watercooling Case

    Aerocool Masstige. Comes in black also. Or maybe the original Stacker . It's a little more though and you'd have to strech your budget by ~$50.

    Best Lian Li to watercool in.

    I fit my loop into a PC-7B Plus II (Storm, MCW60, MCP655, 2x120mm BIP, T-Line). I hacked a hole in the top of the LL to fit my rad (with a rad grill) and 2 scythe s-flex 120mm fans (leftovers). Then I hacked/dremeled parts of the side from the 5.25" bay to run the hoses... I lost the top two...
