    38mm fans are where its at. I like the cheap dual ball bearing Koolance 120x38 ($9/fan) and have a few San Ace Denki as well.

    I have them on a fan controller set really really low most of the time.

    I can't believe EVGA put some ultra bright white LEDs to the side of GTX 780 Ti Classified Kingpin graphics card.
    It is making me blind and I have bad headache... And wait for it... best part is you can NOT disable them. No sir, there is 25 different dip switches but you just can't disable these super bright blinders.

    As a temporary fix I slapped over it some electric tape but its not holding very long during gaming (gets hot, glue melts). Besides, 750 euro graphics card. Duct tape it?

    I thought I finally find something special. It would be damn ashame if I have to switch gfx card again because of 5 LEDs.

    all about that amped 598. amped high grade cans are very loud and therefore serve to be 100% noise cancelling ;)


    Sanyo Denki San Ace :p I have three of the rare San Ace 9G1212H1011. will never get rid of.



    @GC_PaNzerFIN I actually like the LEDs. they are present on the 780 Classified as well and they personally dont bother me at all even with a windowed case facing towards me.

    You really don't want any of those LEDs to turn off. It means there is a power delivery issue.

    I like the LEDs personally. Gives the card character. I can, however, see how some may not like them.

    I have never ever seen such bright LEDs used on any PC hardware for obvious reason. I do liek debug leds. But come on these are power LEDs designed for lamps and industrial lightning.

    I have LEDs like that on a sunbeam fan controller and its horrible. I put electrical tape over them but it falls off occasionally and ruins the look as well. Smashed the led out of my NZXT Sentry Mesh controller too. I hate LEDs.

    Damn man, the only way I could figure out which board you had was by the power button and VRM heatsink.
    That being said, I see an EVBot and DMM, so you must be benching. In the case of benching, wire management won't net you a higher score ;)

    True, no extra points for cable management in any 3DMark bench and if you look closely you'll see that I got two PSU's hooked up. The rig pulls 1800W from the wall i the first GPU-test in Firestrike. o_O

    I saw the dual-PSU jumper cable in the first pic. You have a serious benching rig set up there.

    Yes it's good but I need to get the second PSU installed on the other side of the case and do some cable management :p

    Heres the Coolermaster Elite 120 ITX next to my Coolermaster Cosmos 1000 full tower! What a difference in size eh?! Just put on the Gear Grip. Fits but its obviously for a larger case. I used to have it on my Antec 300Two. I love how much performance this little guy has.

    I bought two of these dead boards for $30. The first one was easy. Only two bent pins. But this one had about twenty bent. I wish in would have taken a before pic but I really didn't think it would be fixable.

    yeah its painful when you buy high end board and ended like that coz stuck on bend pins
    and like everyone say high end is fast, cool, but easy to break
    i dunno why intel doesnt come with another ideas to minimize bend pins
