    @d1nky & @Bo$$ just heading down to the post office now, will PM you guys with postage receipts.

    @NdMk2o1o what is your preferred make of HDD's? I got a buttload of Maxtor and Hitachi's, not so many Seagates anymore, but enough to send a couple.

    New case to make all the 14 year old uber mega gamer 360 noscope MLG pro kids feel super jealous of your sweet looking pc case.
    Or I don't know, extra SSD space, a shiny awesome cooler that outperforms the H80i? Some stickers? Colour code your entire rig(fans etc)?
    I see no reason to change your rig other than to go single flagship GPU instead of SLI.

    I know at least a hundred people that would murder you for that. It's been the only real improvement in PC cases in a long time, and was very welcome. Hell, my old work colleague has a more than nice Phantom watercooled case, and even he wants a damn Air 540!

    been toying with the idea of going back to a case for a while but had started to look for ways to cram a 240 and 480 rad into one xD

    gave up on that as i can cram 3 360s in this if i want too and for the price it would of been rude not to.

    not sure i will ever need more than 2 240s mind, 1 cpu and 1 gpu only.

    going to be fun working out where to put the res/pump. thinking i will muller the dvd drive bay and hang it in that somehow and hang 1 240 from the roof till i decide if i am going to put the other in the front or base. i do want to do something to that floor as its minging :/

    I'll probably try and work out a new monitor for next month. right now i dont really have time to take delivery since im stuck working late shifts :( 5 days a week.

    New case is definitely an option along with a H100i or something of that nature. I would prefer more performance upgrades as my Define XL is still a solid case.

    I think i will stick to getting a new mobile then. Maybe a Oppo Find 7, Samsung Note 3 or HTC OnePlus. I dont care for the Galaxy 5 very much

    Using a HTC One and for phone of the year I'm.very impressed with its durability. Having one solid chunk of metal for a phone is pretty nice. The performance is awesome, but I'm not really a phone enthusiast, I just buy the phone with the most quality

    the Find 7's body is made out of titanium while the backplate is either made of the same or carbon fibre - Im not quite sure.

    I love the Note 3 because of the screen but the Find 7 has a much higher ppi than the Note 3. The design of the Find 7 just reminds me of my Xperia Arc S which i loved to death.

    Im on the fence about it - I would like to get a new phone but then my S3 functions more as an mp3 player than something i use to make calls with so theres no real reason to justify buying a new phone other than the fact that i like new shiney things.

    Mine is pretty much my mp3 player too, my old phone was only 16gb so I got this one for the 32gb standard memory it comes with, and I was looking for something with good sound quality. That being said I should've just bought a Cowon instead for music :D I bought my mum the Note 2 when it came out and she's loves it to death, and its done her well, and brought my sister the same phone just a few months ago. I get 25% discount as a worker of education!

    Nah the M7, it was practically free, i just bought a 12 month sim only plan with massive data allowance and i'm good for another year. the phones seem to have stagnated imo... not really worth changing at them moment

    Like I said to ndmk, I'm off work this week so you'll have to remind me next Tuesday when I get back, as Monday is bank holiday! That should give me enough time to think about it. I'm not accustomed to extending freebies to people who have just joined and may not necessarily give anything back to the community, most giveaways on here for example are done for members who meet specific criteria. I'll let you know in a week.
