Really nice setup dude :)

Not sure about the LED fans on the side panel though

soulreaper 21-03-13 07:23 AM

Thanks! :) Yes, me neither, they only really look good when the case is glowing red, Will replace them with some clear ones soon

Awesome setup!
Could you expand on the audio switcher? :D atm I just use a cable splitter between my headphones and speakers but it's kinda messy.

soulreaper 21-03-13 10:35 AM

Thanks dude ! Appreciate it. It is a stereo audio switcher, It has one input (from the PC to the the switcher) and 3 outputs, Pressing one of three buttons of the front switches from outputing the Front left and right channel to one of the 3 outputs. (With my 5.1 headphones I then have to switch my audio control panel to 5.1). Brand is digitech, Here it is on my local Auction site - http://www.trademe.co.nz/electronics...-574058215.htm

That rig looks epic, i almost bought the same case cause i didn't had enough money for the one i wanted.
But it worked out later.

Really cool gaming case for sure, almost jealous i didn't took it. :D

Cheers, the handles make it handy as hell for taking it places, I don't know how I ever lived without them.. Didn't fit the 5970 straight away so had to cut a bit out of the hard drive / 5.25 bays ... ^.^ When I tidy up the inside i'll take a pic of the internals..

Nice rig yourself, I want to go water cooling... but water.. makes me nervous lol

Signex 22-03-13 12:15 AM

Don't worry, Corsair all in one coolers are very reliable.

It's the custom water cooling that can leak if it's not done properly.

I won't do that either haha, never done it so it's dangerous for me to do it myself.

soulreaper 22-03-13 02:52 AM

I have put it on my list for cooling options after reading some reviews looks great, definately want to get some aftermarket cooling asap so i can start ocing. Though even at stock clocks it runs soooooooooooo much better than my previous phenom II x6 ever did overclocked
