    Personally I think acrylic is more forgiving than wood, as it's tensile strength is higher, and not dependent on the quality of the wood itself, and even the "expensive" stuff is cheap. Also it's far easier to bend acrylic, than wood, as all acrylic requires is a blow dryer or a heat gun, and some time, where as wood depending on the thickness can require equipment that's expensive and hard to find.

    Finally, got around to cleaning my desk, and took a pic. To the left of the monitor, below is my main rig, and above it, on the desk is where my folding/crunching rig is coming together.

    And to the right of the monitor, is a Vinyl player :)

    MMmmmmmmm, Vinyl. (Yes, it is capitalized on purpose)

    I'm saving to grab a replacement P-Mount Ortofon cartridge and Phono preamp fopr my old Technics turntable, just to get set back up. Then I'll work on getting a new table.

    Ha, I didn't know what to do with myself, I normally complain about stuff and say if I only had the time, yet when I do have the time, I'm so bored I haven't a clue what to do.:toast:

    Confused by the 8400 in the middle. Why? Or was it more of a why not choice?

    The i5 760 bundle will replace my system specs UD5/i7 combo. Then those power supplies and hard drives will power my dedicated crunchers. The 8400GS is because I don't really need any graphical power to crunch.

    Should end up with something like this:

    R3E + 950 + 8400GS + WDC Blue + AX750 (WCG)
    UD5 + 920 + (for now 460) + WDC Blue + AX750 (WCG)
    CHIV + 1090T + (eventually 480 + 460) + spare drive + HX1000W (F@H)
    P7P55D-E + i5 760 + (eventually 6950 or 570) + HX750 (Games and stuff)

    Temps on the H70 on exhaust are as low as they were on intake in my stacker. Not even sure how that's possible, there must be no heat build up at all.

    That TwinFrozr cooler looks awesome. Do you have any close-ups of that graphics card?

    Ok it's about time I got around to posting pics of my rig or rigs. So here's a few pics over the years.
    2007 First PC I ever built from scratch, E6750@2.6ghz, 2GB Ram, XFX 8800gts 320mb, 160gb HD.
    [​IMG]
    Next up last year sometime I think.
    2009 PC built form all used parts, Q9450@2.6ghz, 6gb Ram, ATI 4870 1gb, numerous HDs for storage.
    [​IMG]
    Now I don't have a house of my own so I got no rig for a while.:( I know the cable management could be better too.
