I get the odd eyestrain/migraine myself, but not that frequently.

Yep red and black is done to death, but there aint much choice out there, unless you get the paintbrushes out smile.gif


They help a lot. I haven't been using them as much now though. With the ASUS VG248 I don't find myself straining my eyes as much. When I use my laptop or Benq 2450HT for console gaming I have to use them though.

These are what I have. Made by an actual eyeglass company, cheaper than gunnars, and so much better build quality. I accidentally ran them over with my SUV and the lenses survived. That's how good the quality is.

The only bad thing is that is really messes with the colors. If you are an IPS user, I doubt that you would be willing to use these.

Hmmm...interesting!

I may have to do a bit more research into them then! Thanks for the info!
How do you find the Asus monitor?

Oh God, night and day difference. I immediately felt my eyes open up looking at the ASUS. Even at the stock ICC profile which has horrible colors. I currently have a Benq Rl2450HT (What I'm comparing to. The ASUS VG248 and an HP23 inch. I had the Benq for gaming on consoles. I bought the ASUS VG248 because I was experiencing bad screen tear on my 60hz with dual SLI 770s and thought I'd give 144hz a try. Boy was it worth it. IPS may have better colors but they do not compare to the fluidity of 144hz. I bought the HP 23 inch because I wanted a third monitor and I go it for 40 bucks. It'll go to my wife's rig once I get 2 more ASUS VG248s and the Benq will be used for console gaming/ accessory monitor for temps, music, etc. I'm probably going to go portrait with the three VG248s Landscape is just too wide for my tastes especially for FPSs.

Perfect setup buddy. Enjoy it.

 

I have one question. I will get the same fans like yours and my build will be pretty much like yours.

 

How are the noise levels of those fans in that case?

 

Does it bother you when you are next to it?

The fans are very quiet compared to my old case. The noise of the fans dont bother me at all.
The only sound I can hear sometimes is mechanical drives being accessed, other than that it's quite silent!

During gaming it cant be heard at all.

Really? I read somewhere that the H100i/H110 are very loud and that's why I pretty much decided not to get them (currently building a new PC and wanting it to be very quiet). So you're saying I can buy H110, get some SP fans for it and it shoulf be fine?

The red cables are very nice smile.gif

Keep in mind these are full replacement modular cables and not extension cables.

Great job on the build, The color scheme came out looking sharp thumb.gif. Quick question, what kind/brand are those colored replacement modular cables? I want to get similar cables for my Corsair HX750 in blue for my build. Thanks.

The problem with the hx series is it is not fully modular. You would just have to get extension cables.
