I have the BW Ultimate, and I love it. The Cherry Blue switches are excellent, and most of the noise doesn't come from the switch closing inside the switch housing, but from the switch bottoming out inside the housing. So, basically it seems to me they make two noises, the switch closing and the switch bottoming out. The harder you hit them, the louder the bottoming out noise is (like many keyboards).

If you hit them very softly you can hear the switch click when it closes, which is (imo) a very pleasing noise for a keyboard. I wish they could make the switches with some type of rubber coating to allow them to bottom out quietly and still make the switch closing clicking noise.

I tried a Corsair K90 keyboard, which I think uses Cherry Red keys, and they were almost silent. I don't really like a keyboard that quiet, and there wasn't much feedback when you actually click the key like you get on the Cherry Blue keys. I ended up giving the K90 away to a friend who isn't so pickey about his keyboard (if I didn't give him the K90 he would have bought some $10 POS).

Even so, I love the BW Ultimate keyboard even though it does get louder when you hit the keys harder.

Agree 100%

My roommate also has a BW Ultimate and he loves his too.

I would pay $150 CD to own a keyboard that uses the Cherry Blue switches, but looks like the Merc Stealth keyboard. I loved my stealth, but the keys started wearing out a little, and the keycaps wore out badly. I still have it, but I would have to purchase some keycaps (which are available), but even after cleaning it internally, some of the keys in the gaming area sometimes don't make contact unless you press them a little harder. I love the layout, but I wouldn't purchase another unless they used mechanical keys.

Now comes the time to change my system and I will consist of a Corsair AX1200i PSU, a soon-to-be-available Intel Haswell CPU with either the ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard that can handle it, a SSD drive, 2 o 3 HDD and two of the soon-to-be-available GTX 780 cards on SLI. Do you think my Corsair 600T will do fine with this configuration? Will I have enough space for all this with this case? My alternative is the Cosmos 2 Ultra Tower but even tough I love the design I think it might be overkill, or not?
If with this new system configuration I could be fine, and with NO water cooling options, just air cooling, what kind of improvements could you suggest to my 600T? Maybe replacing the stock 200mm and 120mm fans with better aftermarket fans you could suggest?
THANK YOU very much for all your help!

Absolutely replace the stock fans. Put two 120mm high flow case fans in the top and in the rear exhaust, and the best airflow 200mm fan you can find in the front. If you don't mind modding a little (not major), I would recommend purchasing a 200MM NZXT 166cfm fan for the front. Because of your two high end video cards, plus air cooling your cpu, I would recommend the best airflow you can get. The NZXT fan is 30MM wide, so you would have to cut this little curl/lip from the hard drive cage to allow the fan to fit. I have been using this fan for a couple of years, and it's great. I tried the 200mm Spectre Pro blue LED fan which is supposed to be 140-something cfm, but it wasn't even close to the NZXT fan in airflow so I took it out and reinstalled the NZXT.

If you don't want to mod, the Spectre Pro fan will do better than most, but some people may have some other recommendations. (I also modded the bottom of my case for another 120mm fan intake, but since you will be using a 1200W PSU you won't be able to use that mod). Just removing the hard drive cages will help airflow, and you wouldn't have to mod at all for just about any fan you want (other than maybe using ties if the mounting holes don't line up, or possibly drilling new mounting holes if you prefer). The Spectre Pro fan fits perfectly without any modding required.

I can still get a few years out of my Sandy Bridge 2500K. With SSDs and 16G of memory to help my system out, it'll be more than fast enough for me.

If you're building a new rig, then by all means wait for the newest chip. No point building a rig that's already a generation old if you don't have to.

If you already own the Ivy Bridge hardware, personally I wouldn't bother replacing it with just one generation newer hardware. The exception would be if you can sell your Ivy Bridge stuff for a decent enough price to give you a substantial discount on the new hardware. Personally, I'm happy to hang onto my hardware until it's too old to support the newest games.

Nope. I got a bunch of other things I wanna upgrade and I'm on Ivy bridge, so there's barely a difference.

I want a K70, a Mionix NAOS or Func MS-3, a low latency IPS monitor, an SSD, another 660Ti, an H220... yeah.

It's for under my keyboard biggrin.gif
I like it smile.gif

Mergatroid that post was long, very long, spoiler it, please. Thanks! thumb.gif

(nothing personal just thinking about the poor mobile users) also sparkles that is a very nice looking mouse and goes well with your build smile.gif

In our chassis which kind of GFX card would be better to reduce heat? A closed card with a blower cooler like the Titan or reference GTX780 or an open cooler like Asus' Direct CU II, or HIS' ICE Qx2.

I'm using a Matrix 7970 which is using the DCU II cooler and so far my temps are relatively good if not excellent smile.gif That should give a good gauge if to use a closed card or a open cooler

I'm using the ASUS 680 Direct CUII OC and the highest I've seen my temps go while gaming is 62 degrees. I think it all depends if you are going to be doing SLI or single card. Overall I'd say custom cooler solutions are way better for single card configs but when you add a second card and get them sandwiched blower is usually better.

I plan on going SLI or XFire when I can afford a 2nd card. I'm asking because I'm wondering if in case heat from a card would effect a rad on exhaust?

Oh okay,

For the rad temps reference will definitively be better. And considering that you are going dual cards then I'd say get some reference ones. Also easier to get water blocks for if you are planning to WC in the future.

Problem with reference cards are that they are a fair bit louder than custom ones. So you have to take all of those aspects into a consideration before deciding.

What about the recent NVidia Cards such as the Titan and the GTX780?

Definitely blower style fans if you are going sli/xfire,they do get very loud under load from my experience,but i never hear them when my sound system is turned up,and especially if you use a headset...
