    Or use an external DAC that won't be affected by ripple and noise from your PC, then run that into an amplifier.
    But to be completely honest, those Shures won't see any improvement with their own amp. They already operate so close to their optimum without amplification that any gains in sound quality by adding in an amp would be so minor that it probably wouldn't be perceivable and would have to be blamed on the source equipment. Those particular cans(and most Shure headphones in general) operate very well unamplified as they are (usually) designed for easy transport/portable listening and/or DJing/casual listening. We're not talking about high-end cans like a pair of 600Ω Sennheisers or 320Ω Grados that will sound like garbage without an amp. Most headphones with an impedance up to around 48Ω can run well unamplified. Some will say 64Ω is fine without an amp, though I consider anything above 48Ω requiring amplification, even if its just a simple CMoy.
    However, I digress.

    Ezio, that's a nice, clean setup. I really like it.

    its all right what you say but dedicated is much better than integrated audio without discussion xd and the sound card of my advice cost very low .

    This is the reason i don't plan on buying any DAC/Headphone AMP right now.. right now with this headphones i just don't see the point, also with the new motherboard there less noise compared to the EP45-DS3 with the Realtek 889 i used before .

    Thanks BTW, you have a great system from what is see in the specs :toast:

    They actually say that the best thing to do is to learn to mouse left-handed, even if you are righty. That way you can mouse with your left and type with your right at the same time.

    I don't know about that. You have access to more words on the left side of the keyboard (at least in QWERTY keyboards).

    For Silverstone Raven RV 02 owners can be a nice idea ?

    This is my broken crap plastic H60, i keep the radiator the only thing with some value.

    Yes must flip the 120mm fan to the other side.

    Putting the tech station to work. Eventually, when winter actually arrives in Tucson (sometime in December.. if im lucky), I'm going to do some 5+ghz runs with the 3570k. It was 99F today, supposed to be 100F tomorrow. Can someone inform Tucson that winter is here, I'd appreciate it! :)

    Your post was the first time I had ever seen this case by Bitfenix and I am very interested in it! :D I have always wanted to build a mini ITX gaming rig, but most itx cases do not have the option for full scale video cards and good airflow.

    Q: I see that the black model has a mesh front bezel and the white model appears to be solid, but still has front fan options. I see that you installed a 200-240mm fan in front, does it have any front ventilation? even with the solid panel. Why didn't Bitfenix make a white mesh panel like their black version? Hmmm...

    the black border around the white front is all vented and slotted, there is also a gap of about 3/4 - 1 CM that allows air through the bottom, it moves plenty of cool air into the system. that said I too would have liked mesh like the black case.

    I thought I'd share my pics of my recent endeavors, though it's not quite done. I do apologize for the lack of quality pics; I blame the lame iPhone camera.

    A few pics of some stuff everywhere at times. I broke everything down and yeah I cleaned up those dirty rads ;)

    Then some pics as things started to retake form

    And pretty much what it is now. To come shortly, the blue yate loon will be replaced, and a new EK 360 rad for the top of the case, courtesy of t_ski :toast:

    I'll post back when the new rad gets in and installed.

    Interesting. You have a triple rad covering the PCI slots, so how do you plug in the monitor cable?

    It looks as if it's off to the side quite a bit. Enough room for a DVI port or two from each card.

    Is that a B3 board ? Seems like an original 1155 board to me. :/ Although I guess if you don't use the SATAII ports you're fine.
    I am very jelly of your GPU setup :p

    It covered all but the DVI port, so I'm good there, as long as I don't need to plug in anything else. The toughest part was that it covered my sound card, so I had to plug in my cable first, then install the rad. Fortunately Razer headphones came with an extension cable, which is what is plugged in.

    It seems to work for now, though I would like somewhat better air flow on th back rad with the fans pulling. So it'll have to do until I get a bigger case of sorts. :)

    I'll check when I get home but I always thought B3. Box said B3 atleast lol :laugh:
    Thanks;)

    Yup, B3 indeed

    Why did you decide against the SLI fitting between the cards?
