Thanks man. What do you think of my cable management?

Nice on the back, but some how it looks you can clean up down by the  PSU

I tried to clean up the PSU cables on the inside but couldn't do it due to no rubber grommets. Plus I wanted to be able to let the cables free for quality purposes.

Nice Build! and Going Quantum podcast <3!

Why thank you mate :) I originally had a ZALMAN Z12 Computer Case and a Enermax ETS-T40-BLK but got sort of bad results from trying to overclock.

Not to put your build down but Logitech Z623 speakers are far from audiophile quality. If you're looking at real audiophile grade speakers you need to at least buy yourself some bookshelfs and get an amp. AudioEngine 5+ are pretty good powered speakers. Everything looks great though!

I actually though these were the best speaker system I could buy.

Avoid companies that make anything but speakers if you want high quality sound. Logitech is great and they make good little speakers but to get the best sound you usually got to spend a lot more. Pairing a good set of speakers with your DAC would greatly improve the sound quality or you could save yourself some money and get some awesome headphones.

For my headphone I have a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50

Those are good reference headphones for that price range. I think those would actually sound better then your speakers IMO. 

Well that's not that hard to achieve tbh. Getting a decent sounding soundsystem is expensive as hell. I myself settled with using a good pair of open headphones. That way I get a good sound + don't bother my neighbors when I crank up the volume :)

The outside looks like an aerodynamic car. The fans that come with it I do like. I can feel the static pressure and they don't make much noise.

Awesome. Maybe in the future, I'll give NZXT a try for a pc case. =p

Nice looking build man. You must be getting some good temperatures with the water cooler you got in there. I'm still running stock AMD cooler on mine and that thing is loud. Your entire rig looks to be pretty quiet which mine will never be. Good luck on your upgrades man.
