    Hey guys, question about my pics from above, that top pci-e x1 slot; i can throw an x-fi in there no problem right? like an x-fi titanium. it will fit my hafx etc? also, no one even said GJ on my freaking case man. that thing took me HOURS to get looking decent. i mean i realize it's put to shame by most of you guys but sheesh :(

    Yup! You should not have any issues running a 1x Sound card there.

    Haven't really checked the thread lately tbh. First I've seen your rig. I like it! :)

    you should be able to plug in a audio card, as long as its pci-e 1x

    and with front panel things, i think most if not all cards have it

    and nice looking rig btw :D

    Did you see how they tested? Ummm, yeah. Take that review with a grain of salt.

    Don't worry man it looks really clean. Only thing is the tubes out the back look kind of sloppy. But I like your setup :)

    DAMN, Been out of the thread for a bit, I need to catch up. :)

    That is a badass eyefinity set up you got there. And that wheel looks VERY nice. I haven't played on one but I hear the clutch/shifter control is a little weird to get used to. Can you confirm that? :toast:

    You did a pretty nice job with the cable management in a non-friendly case. Good Job, I like it. :toast:

    OK J5, I have to say, THIS IS THE MOST STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL RIG I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! Very clean, no crazy LED/CCFDs, amazing cable management...This is just a stunner. Very clean and classy, with a nice set of components. Using a female as comparison, your rig is not the slutty dressed chick working the corner, it is the supermodel in the business suit working downtown. VERY VERY NICE!!! :toast:

    Cleaned and silenced my secondary rig (main cruncher), i found the protective foam of samsung HDDs to be perfectly snowwhite (and thus matching my rigs interiors :D).
    I just had to make a few rough cuts with a scissors/knife, to be able to use it.;)
    Also removed that terribly loud (3500 rpm) superred fan from my rad, which too had the tendency to vibrate like mad, so the rig is much quieter now :D

    Yeah I did. The bag part wasn't the best choice, but it should have been consistent and was run multiple times. I can't find any fault with the sound testing.

    "Full" isn't going to be exactly the same each run. It's only "full" according to their eyes, which are not very accurate.

    In theory that's an issue, in practice it might not be. Depends on their experience blowing up bags. Seriously. Once a garbage bag hits it's air expansion limit it's very easy to tell, if they hit the stop watch too soon they'll know because the bag continued to expand for a moment afterward, assuming they have any common sense. Don't ask me why I have experience blowing up plastic bags... On accuracy, I'd bet the margin of error are too small to significantly effect the ratio.

    As one of the commentators mentioned, any fan that creates better pressure behind will do a better job near as the bag fills up because of the increasing pressure in the bag the fan must overcome.
