just wondering what keyboard is that ?

It's a 30 year old Apple keyboard, the M0116

 

@spwath it's close, the M0116 is the smaller cousin of the Apple extended keyboard.

Not sure what ortholinear is, but it is a gateron (purple zealio) split keyboard.

Ortholinear means the keys are all in a straight column instead of being staggered like they normally are.

Then yes. It will take a little to get used to, but should be worth it. And its pretty.

*** Updated version HERE ***

I've been holding off for a while before posting my current setup here since I wanted it 100% done (if that is even possible xD).
Finally I got everything I wanted to make it mine and here it is (sorry for potato quality):

More photos:

I hate wires so these cable holders from IKEA are awesome at keeping everything nicely contained and looking clean.

 

3.JPG

Relatively clean behind everything as well.

A custom aluminium coaster with my logo :) Looks pretty awesome!

A Banpresto Goku figure a friend bought for me at MCM London Comic Con.

My 3rd now Ducky Shine 3 TKL since the first 2 I had had faulty Blue LEDs :( I do prefer the Red LEDs anyway.

 

7.JPG

Probably one of the best purchases of last year, my Philips Fidelio X2. Super comfortable, perfect for gaming and blend perfectly with the rest of the set up.

Back again with some grainy but usable pics for my personal rig! :D (Damn I need a new camera)

 

Specs:

CPU: AMD FX-8320 overclocked, clock varies as I'm steadily pushing it further and further every day. 4.3ghz rock solid now.

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 R5 Mobo

24GB DDR3 1600Mhz RAM from Crucial. (2x4G)+(2x8G)

Corsair RM 750 PSU (Slightly broken, 3.5V rail deteriorated)

GPU(s) Top one is an XFX Radeon R9 270x, bottom is the same of the sapphire brand. I call them Natasha and sasha. :P

CPU is cooled using a custom EK water loop (fun as all hell to build)
Loop comprises of:

Supremacy MX copper water block

Zero Maintenance tubing
A DDC water pump/res combo unit

EK Coolstream PE 240 Rad in the front with two EK Vardar rad fans.

All stuffed in a nice quiet Fractal Define S

And with a little custom lighting thanks to cablemod. :3

And some random 1TB drive hidden in the back.

 

She isn't perfect, but she's mine and I couldn't be happier. :D

if i feel adventurous again

ill like to replace those radiator mounts with Hinges.

to make the radiators able to FOLD into a Shut  position alongside the case

 

i dont quite know the NEW temps

new cpu in there an all

 

but the OLD temps 

were like 25c idle ish  cpu  load up to 45c ish

and gpu was always a tad higher 

@ like 29-30c ish idle  and load was usually never above 41c-50c

 

i was able to run that system off a 2500k and gtx 670 and later a 970

with all fans DISABLED  and still game at 50c or less

LOL, yeah.

 

 

when i get a new gpu 

that means i need to drain my watercooler and spend an extra like $130 usd on a new waterblock

 

so that means, ill wait for like, the gtx 1080TI 

or something like that

 

ive actually had that same waterblock since the gtx 670

i got lucky, and the block was the EXACT SAME on this perticular gtx 970,

so i got really lazy, and took it off the 670 and installed it onto the 970.

with out even disconnecting the water loop!

Didn't your momma ever tell you if you ain't got nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all? every comment on a setup you've had is telling  someone to clean their room and manage their cables because it "hurts your face" or some shit like that.. If your setups so perfect then let's see it and even if it's not I don't think anyone needs your annoying ass to tell them to clean their room.

The reason people post setups here is for people to critique them.  If Travis has advice for someone to improve their setup, he can say it.

Your radiator setup is definitely something I've never seen before, quite interesting.

Same here, I'd already have some 1080s when there wouldn't be the cost for the new waterblocks.

What do you think about the 4790K? I have heard a lot about it and about the E3 1231 and was considering getting the 1231, but wasn't sure how well it performs. Not benchmarks, just the general feel of it. Stuff like: Can it record 1080p60, how quickly can it render and is it worth getting the 6700K over the 1231 or the 4770
