  1. I actually like that enough, but I worry about sag in the middle. Also it's a bit shallow at less than 26". I've actually considered picking up a solid top from a kitchen table and then attaching some of the Bekant sit/stand legs on it with some bracing underneath to prevent sag. Not sure what the weight capacity on the sit/stand legs are, though.
  2. Just curious what to do for a large desk. I'd like 7 feet long, with at least 30" depth. Wife and I just bought a house, and I finally have my own cave! It's a 20x14 room, and I want a nice long desk that doesn't look like a picnic table. ...I may or may not currently be using a picnic table. Don't judge. I've been told to look for a Galant/Bekant system, but I'd rather have a single seamless surface. Plus, the Bekant isn't nearly what the Galant was, since I dislike rounded corners. What do you use/recommend?
  3. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HZAGWN6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Cheapest it's ever been, and good build quality if it's anything like the dual monitor mount.
  4. If your fans are wearing out, get better fans. Noctuas have a 5 or 6 year warranty.
  5. I've had my Mayhems pastel orange turn reddish. Not too happy. Used the Blitz cleaning kit, too.
  6. So I'm in the market for a new case. Something similar to the Caselabs Mercury S8. http://www.caselabs-store.com/mercury-s8-customizable/ Needs: Watercooling friendly, horizontal-mounted motherboard, space for several HDDs and SSDs. Would be nice: fan filters Anyone have any ideas, besides $500 for a Caselabs case that I'll end up waiting a year for? Thanks in advance.
  7. I used a H90 for years on my PC. Now it's on the wife's gaming box. Still going strong. It's a great cooler. I changed the fan to something better, but that's not completely necessary at all.
  8. I have an H80 that's been running strong for 4 years. It was on mine for 3, and now on the girlfriend's gaming rig. It's an old Asetek design (the round one) and those are super reliable.
  9. Wow. That's nuts. I reapplied my own thermal paste on my GTX 970 SC and overclocked it to 1510 mhz with a +300 on the memory and with the fans running static at 2000 RPM it won't break 70C. Reapply thermal paste for sure.
  10. I think he means actual compatibility. I bought an MSI GTX 970. It wouldn't SLI with an EVGA SC GTX 970 for some stupid reason. Luckily I was able to trade with a friend.
  11. I did this exact thing in November. I had to cut down my SIM from my Verizon phone (Note3) but it worked flawlessly in my 6P until I switched to Google Fi.
  12. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B016NHRIU8/ Phanteks PH-F140MP are going to be the best low-noise, high-static pressure fans I've worked with. Better than Corsair, Noctua (haven't tried 0ld_Chicken's recommendation, though) Fractal.... If you want low noise, and have a high fin density, put these Phanteks in a pull config and you're super set. As long as you're running at 85% or less, they're silent. Full throttle you can hear, but only barely.
  13. The Hyper212 could keep your cpu cooler at a higher overclock, yes. The advantage to the AIO is that any heat generated by your CPU is exhausted directly out of the case, and doesn't rely on an additional fan to push the heat out, whereas the Hyper212 will increase your case temps. This is an Asetek cooler rebranded by Thermaltake, so it should be good quality.
  14. I'll disagree. Is it as good as Warcraft? No, simply because it doesn't have the monthly fee, so they can't afford to keep dumping money into it. I put 200 hours into the original game right at launch, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I didn't do any expansions, so I'd imagine they're going to add even more content. I'd say this is definitely worth the money.
