    Ikea desk gallery

    I like those speaker shelves. I have been debating about doing something like that with a tabletop, except I would put a whole shelf for my monitors, and then probably put those angled capitas for excess shelving.

    there was someone else on this forum that built something similar to that, but the color scheme was green and it was built in to the wall I believe.

    Hey Deadlift, what size are those monitors? I have been thinking about putting together a configuration like that now that I have a video card that can handle it (6950 2GB).

    Frank's 2011 Upgrade

    True, but if you move the 24pin cable you will just see all the cables from the 580's, which have the same look. I think his goal was to run all those cables down together, rather than have the 580 cables going down and the 24 pin cables going in a different direction, which might make it look...

    Frank's 2011 Upgrade

    This thread continues to amaze me. As I don't have the time or money to invest in good custom sleeving or full watercooling yet, I took the lazy route and have a Corsair H50 and individually sleeved cable extenders that I bought for cheap :-) .

    Corsair: 650D

    Well my plan is to get a demiflex for the top that covers the whole top open area, have 2x140mm fans as intake, and leave the front 200 as is for now. that way I have the 200 intake, 2x140 intake, and the H50 push/pull as the exhuast. I also have a 6950 exhausting air, but it's not reference so...

    Corsair: 650D

    are there holes to mount 2x 140mm fans in the front of the 650D? I never looked. I would love to replace the 200mm with 2x140mm if I could. if not, I plan to put 2x140mm on top as intake with a custom filter on top, and have an H50 with push/pull 120mm as exhaust to go with the 200mm in the...

    Best fan setup for Corsair 650D.

    I've had a 650D for a little while now, and what I think I am going to do is leave the 200mm on the front as intake. I'm gonna get 2 140mm or 120mm fans for the top as intake, with a filter on the top to keep the bunnies away, and then I have an H50 with push/pull as exhaust. I thought about...

    I don't know if it has been mentioned before but what kind of camera/lens are you using for the pictures? I just got myself my a Nikon D5000, and I am still learning my way around DSLRs. I used a film SLR years ago, decided it was time to get back in with the digital :D

I'll post some pics when I'm done. This will be my first time using an SLR since before digital cameras. Should be an...

    Looking at an entry level DSLR

    Thanks for all the input! Well, I decided to go with the Nikon D5000 that came with the 18-55 VR lens. I was going to get the 55-200 VR lens as well but they were out of it, so I'm going to wait a bit and see if I can get a good deal on a slightly better lens sometime in the next month.

    Looking at an entry level DSLR

    Thanks for all the info guys! I have gotten lots of recomendations for Nikon from friends that use them, so I am now looking at the D5000 among a few others. I am not an expert by any means, so I had another question. How exactly does the autofocus work on the D5000? I realize that most of...

    Don't worry about the home and car, etc. you will get to the point where you have all that stuff and will wish that you could go back to when you were 15. Having the home and car is nice, but you forget that it all comes with extra expenses(insurance, repairs, etc.) I am 28, and the computer I...

    Hopefully it will be in Microcenter next week? We should definitely start a 650D gallery then. I will be getting my 650D along with a slew of other stuff tomorrow. I am building a new PC for my father and upgrading mine. New case, new video card, possibly an SSD. :D

    Help with selecting the best case for a PC to be positioned in a cupboard

    What about the RV02? Would its vertical configuration help get cool air from underneath up through the case and eventually push the hot air out the front of the cabinet as it sucks cool air from the bottom?

    Microcenter open box deals?

    I went there tonight. Didn't end up getting an SSD, but I did get an H50 for 54.99. Its weired because I found like 6 that were marked 54.99 and then saw an entire display of H50's marked at 74.99. Identical packaging and everything. I don't know if it was a glitch or what but I took advantage...

    Microcenter open box deals?

    the manufacturer's warranty is 3-year limited. According to the website I would get the remaining balance of that warranty. I guess I'll just have to go down there and ask about each one to get the longest possible warranty.

    Microcenter open box deals?

    Has anyone had any experience with open box items from Microcenter? My local store has a bunch Microcenter-branded 64GB SSD's with sandforce 1222 open box for 79.96 plus tax, and I was thinking about picking up a couple. However the open box thing worries me a little.
