Agree. i think some of it also applies to the media.

The biggest issue, inside your case is audio. Don't use front panel audio connections and that issue is mostly solved. The short SATA cables don't tend to be an issue in the first place and audio is really the only other data sitting on cables inside the box.

Indeed.

EDIT: Sorry Para, quoted the wrong post.

about cable management... a tip:

That's good, because you don't have large numbers of wires running parallel to each other.

However, if you need to open up the throttle to adjust that wire for the R2 wheel for the 10th time (yes, I have a G940 as well) it's more difficult when the wires have so little play.

Never did use the front panel jacks anyway. I have an el-cheapo Logitech 2.1 speaker system that plugs into the mobo audio jacks but the nice thing about this setup is that it has a volume knob that I bring out to within arms reach and the knob has two ports, one for a headphone and the other for the mic. I can easily switch between speakers and headphones this way.

I don't know what the controversy was, or who this dude is, but I feel like I know the guy just for what he wrote.

I often get labeled as close minded because I don't play MMOs and that I somehow put my self on a pedestal for playing flight sims... to which I always reply "because I'm not 15 anymore"... Of course I don't believe that, but hey, at war time, anything that can be thrown at the enemy then becomes ammo. biggrin

A friend of mine has always questioned me for not being interested in MMOs and that I'm not really a gamer... (still no idea what a "gamer" is supposed to be, tho)

Well, some time ago I got my self new ammo for the discussion, which is me being able to say this: you never invented your own programming language and wrote a compiler for it just to have a panel with buttons for your games. You're not a true gamer.

He never accused me of not being a gamer again. bananadance


When you're feeling sad, just remember that somewhere in the world, there's someone pushing a door that says "pull".

Hehehe... PC Master Race FTW!! Then within that, there's the twitch-shooters, then the real-time strategy gamers, then the racers, then the turn-based strategy gamers, and all the way at the top are the combat flight simmers... biggrin

Kidding aside, this is why I could never play consoles for very long. I'm more the Civilization, Total War, BMS player type, stuff that doesn't exist on consoles. One of my co-workers just bought himself a PC and was all smug.... until I showed him a picture of my current setup. Hehehe...

For self centering, but I removed them... actually my cat did it...
