    :roll:

    I don't want any LEDs of any sort in my rig, I had an LED fan for a little while and it made it hard to sleep with it on :shadedshu

    So the only LEDs are the one on the WiFi card and the HDD LED

    Eh. It's handy for us, as we enjoy a little night at light to see WTF the cats are doing, if the knock something over, etc. Plus it makes it so you don't have to turn on a light just to find you way around for something in the middle of the night.

    Oh, and the light isn't that bad. Not nearly as much as you think.

    lol

    I'm not sayin that the light looks too bad, but my PC resides directly across the room from my bed, so I like to keep it quiet & dark ;)

    Both those rigs are in our bedroom. Like I said, it doesn't bother us. :D

    Well that's quite surprising IMO. I guess I might just be extra light-sensitive :eek:

    i have the same problem. I can't stand to have LED fans on at night. That is why the ONLY led fan i have is the top one and you can hardly see it(i have it slowed down to 50% using my fan controller so lights are really dim)

    Aha, that would help a lot :)

    I had a LED fan in my last system, and I decided never again, so I'm LED-free now. But my friend has 2 LED fans in his system and keeps it in his bedroom and has no issues, so I guess everyone is just different

    My PC put out very little light compared to hers, and since hers is under her desk, it just puts light out across the floor. Thus allowing me to keep an eye on the monsters.

    POS, I don't think I've seen pics of your new case yet.

    And how's the TT cooler working for you?

    Cool :)
    It looks pretty nice, as does the case. I'm not a big fan of TT products, but these are some of the better ones I've seen from them :toast:

    Very nice both of you :toast: :rockout:

    Hammer, might that 1100w PSU be a 'bit' overkill for an OCed i7 and what looks like an 8500GT?
