seems like he stated somewhere that he was out of state at the moment. Can't recall what thread I read that in. :confused:
Thanks; I must have missed that, but it's good to hear :)

I hope t_ski is alright. I PMd about the Orca headset that he won, but it shows that he hasn't logged in in 2 days. Anyway, I trust all is well with him, and I'll hang onto the headset for him, at least for a few more days :)

Nope, not out of state, just slammed at work and at home. I'm depriving myself of sleep just to catch back up here :D

Matt, I sent you a PM on the headset.

Thanks all!

That's a nice looking rig, cleanly put together. Xvi is in for a treat to be sure :)

I'll update later tonight, but I've been super busy this whole week. I've been slacking in shipping out the Razer headset to AlienIsGOD, but I promised to get it out to him soon. I do feel bad that it's taken me so long :eek:

I had it put together before the end of the contest, but I left for vacation the Sunday the drawing was. I didn't get back from all the running around until this past Monday. I finally got it shipped out today.

I sue hope he likes it. I did try to do a decent job on the wiring. I could be better though. I rushed on it a little so I could run it for a few days to test it and have it ready to ship out when I got back.

I must say I'm worried about the Raidmax PSU, but that's a clean build! :toast:
I'm glad to see my HW getting reused--enjoy the rig XVI!

No need to worry. That psu is right tough. I had it in my Linux box for the past year or so without issues. I pulled it from it just for the build because I knew it would be fine in there. :toast:

Yup! Hung the satellites on the wall behind the monitor and my better half is all happy - no more headphones.

Thanks again!
