How you managed to move the Corsair water tubes to the PSU side of the case? I have the same case but havent figured it out yet.

Saw in the other thread you have a 760T build, what do you use that for if you game on the node?
Thanks mate! I don't think Yamaha is the best, friend has a $100K+ system that's insane but Yamaha for the price its great. For gaming I think Yamaha is the way to go, other brands are tuned for music and over amplify certain frequencies and kill others. Yamaha is a clean natural sound that you want with games to make it sound as real as possible.

760T for FPS, I use a picture frame on the couch as a table for the mouse, node for every game that uses a xbox wireless pad. Wife rather I game on the node with her so she doesn't get lonely, 760T is gathering dust unfortunately!

For others 760 setup

Had to remove the board and top panel, then feed the CPU cooler attachment through a hole made larger in the middle of the case. Make sure you file it smooth so it or bend it back to it doesn't have a sharp edge to it.

LOL those stations are $#!t anyway

I used WMC for a long time but the amount of crap I have on the PC (12TB) it was getting ridiculous trying to keep track of it all. Kodi will scan all the movies, music and TV shows, then find the descriptions, IMBD rating and posters automatically. Also tell you which episodes you've watched. Its fantastic for sorting, so if my wife wants to watch some romantic comedy crap, just view titles by genre, make it a lot easier than trying to remember names of movies.

I'm still running WMC TV tuner back end to handle TV with a twin tuner card. Works well

Wow well compared to a 100K setup I dont suppose it is! tongue.gif Yeah I've always been impressed with the sound reproduction.

Ah I see, explains the mouse and keyboard combo! You might want to check this out http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/landing/lapdog looks quite smart! Ah thats a shame, such a nice case! I think you should move it to your living room as a center piece biggrin.gif

^ Thanks for the link!

Further updates, upgraded amp and controller.

Cool features; WIFI, mobile app controlled, multicasting, auto speaker calibration, rear speaker virtualization, and the best feature, you can turn it off and will still pass through signal to TV. Good if you don't want to use large speakers and happy with TV speakers to watch trash.

PS old adage about old amps sounding better is complete and utter BS

Loving this controller much better than my old Xb360 controller. The wireless headphone jack is great. Only drawback apart from cost is chews batteries, but that's ok I have two sets of rechargeable.
