egotrippin, that's an awesome setup, very clean! What speakers are those?

Audioengine A5 White http://amzn.com/B005OSR1C8
The sound is amazing but you will want a sub which is sold separately Audioengine S8 http://amzn.com/B002XRS0T6
or you can use another sub, like the KRK10S http://amzn.com/B001FRKK2U

His setup is nice! But what about mine? tongue.gif
Thanks! It's been quite a journey! I love those speakers too!
Jeffinslaw

I loooooooooooooooooooooove the 27" Apple display. I actually bought mine used on eBay for $715 shipped and it was in perfect condition. There are so many colors that I didn't even know I was missing before and 2560x1440 resolution makes porn so vivid you can smell it.

I showed your setup to a couple coworkers who are impressed with all the work you're doing on your mac mod. Keep it up ;-)

Umm... I'm pretty sure the fact that you can't smell it is one of the few advantages it has over the real thing... I'd stay away from that monitor if the above review was true (or at least avoid viewing porn on it) biggrin.gif

I have to agree though about the picture at least... I have a 27" iMac and run a 30" Dell IPS display on my PC - and despite loving the resolution and needing the glare reduction... that glossy 27" (which is the same as the Cinema) just makes everything look so lush and 'right' to me. wink.gif

Oh goodness, where to start! First of all, those speakers! Wow... they sure are very nice. What is the sound quality on those? Super expensive though!

Your comment on the Apple Cinema Display, wow hahahaha. I checked out a teardown of the Thunderbolt display and I don't think it would be possible to powder coat the casing of that one at least, but if it is anything like the Thunderbolt display, it will be very tough to powder coat. Thanks for the review haha. Not quite sure I want to be smelling the porn though lol. wink.gif

Which do you prefer? Your iMac display or your Dell?

Yeah, the glossy screen was really a big question for me because I generally prefer matte finish - but it sure looks flashy and makes the colors "POP". The only other monitor I seriously considered was the HP ZR30w - it has a square industrial all business style that I like and I think it could be easily modified - I'd want to shave the HP logo, move the buttons to the back of the monitor, off it and refinish the entire black part of the bezel bezel so it's flat black with no buttons or labeling. The ZR30w is a few years old now and it's way past time for a refresh but nothing else really bests it. Where as the Apple monitor or most other high end IPS monitors have 80% of the RGB gamut, the ZR30w has 111%!!!!! That's over 1 billion colors. On top of that, it was designed in a way that has no scaling or post processing so the total response/lag time for screen refresh is SUPER low for any monitor let alone an IPS - you should check it out.

Sound quality is awesome on the speakers. Search for reviews for them, they are among the highest reviewed for any speakers in that price range. On top of that, they are powered so no amp/receiver needed and there's a spare AC plug in the back, a USB port for charging, and an extra audio in jack on the top for other devices. All my music I've heard before sounds as if I'm hearing it for the first time. You can hear instruments you didn't know were there or in video games hear foot steps and other settle noises that would otherwise be poorly represented. If you want to get into audio, the Asus Xonar Essence St or Stx is the best audio card out there for the price (but not mac compatible...booooo)

Don't get the new display, get the previous 30" Cinema Display - it would be easy breezy beautiful to powder coat.

I think I have come across that screen searching for monitors in that size. I will look into it more, thanks! thumb.gif

That I think is the Cinema Display from two generations ago? The one I would get, if I decided to get a Cinema Display, looks exactly like the Thunderbolt display, but it uses mini-display port and a USB cable. So many decisions! And those speakers are just beautiful! I can't get over their look. I will have to check them out. Great to hear they don't need an AMP. Goodness, I wish I could win the lottery! rolleyes.gif

Yeah, the mini display port is the one I have - it's identical to the thunderbolt display sans thunderbolt. It has a built in webcam, light sensor, speakers, USB hub and no buttons. (Added value?). There's a free app from some german programmer to control the brightness.

You don't need to win the lottery. All I did was abandon my financial responsibilities, social life, and personal hygiene and the rest fell into place ;-)

Where did you learn how to make things? I had a great idea for modding my previous Lian Li case but with no tools and no experience I took the cowards route and tried to buy something unique rather than create something unique. It's definitely not as rewarding.

You don't need to win the lottery. All I did was abandon my financial responsibilities, social life, and personal hygiene and the rest fell into place ;-)
Where did you learn how to make things? I had a great idea for modding my previous Lian Li case but with no tools and no experience I took the cowards route and tried to buy something unique rather than create something unique. It's definitely not as rewarding.

Pshhh, I don't have a social life, hygiene is something I do need to still take care of, and I own my own car and therefore pay insurance and gas for it. I am in my senior year of high school though so I don't have too much financial responsibilities beside my car. At least my job pays well.

I have very little experience with power tools but I just practiced. If you have been subbed for a while, you may have seen my first attempt at cutting the case for the fan holes (nothing lines up). So the next time, I just took my time and made sure I measured a ton and only cut once. I am very nervous about the tubing though. I'm still tossing around the idea of doing 10MM OD acrylic tubing with white dragon tinted blue to match the ASUS P9X79 Pro motherboard. I want to trade my ASRock Extreme7 for the ASUS board. I like the ASRock board but it isn't a board for watercooling. Obviously nothing will beat solid chrome piping but I think the acrylic would look badass as well.

I still got some things to think about lol.
