NZXT Mesh fan controller...





Cheap, effective, and matches up smartly with the HAF-X design aesthetic.
Tamed those Scythe beasts very nicely too I might add.

Now the loudest fan in the room is the Lasko.  :laughing7:
I can live with that.

Sexy, very sexy.

My last purchase: Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse G400 with High-Precision 3600 DPI Optical Engine



Why? Because Dota 2, that's why.

Got absolutely fedup of using the more expensive yet vastly inferior Logitech G9X Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse on my son's computer.



You would think with all the fancy technology in the newer mouse, that it would be better for gaming. Wrong.

It sucks.

Maybe I am just too accustomed to the older form factor but my DOTA 2 experience is tons smoother with the old MX500 which currently sits on my main gaming rig. Been using that mouse for about a decade, lol

Now I can have the same buttery gameplay on my main rig and his.



The G400 looks almost identical to its out of production predecessor.

Good enough for me.

Got tired of charging my phone every few hours.

and...

Klipsch S4A II



Sound quality is exquisite, but it's hard to get used to the one button design. But that's typical of android headsets I guess.

Thermaltake commander MS-I

I decided to stick the computer parts I could not sell into this case and try to sell it as a barebones system or something... OR add a quad core CPU and RAM and sell it as a system minus monitor

http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Commander-VN400A1W2N-Tower-Black/dp/B005F770AQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1363542290&sr=8-3&keywords=thermaltake+commander+MS-I

Fits an 11 inch video card with ease. but just the one rear fan. It will only take one more fan at the top and front each. Only $550 or so at Circuit Zone.

Gave my battle-worn Logitech G700 a new 'lease on life' so-to-speak with some new 'shoes'.  :lol:

Feels like a brand-new mouse all over again yes.  GG

Received the MK808B yesterday and was very impressed. Its basically a pc on your tv without the footprint.

The bluetooth keyboard works fine but I still need to get accustomed to it. My Logitech mk320 kb/mouse combo also works great with it. All necessary cables were already available out of box. Set up took less than 5 minutes from opening the box to syncing my google account.

I immediately installed my favorite android apps and no issues thus far. Apex launcher seems like the most suitable launcher for it so far.

ES file explorer works perfect, can access my windows network and play movies in HD on the tv. Have not gotten a chance to play any games as yet but watching a few youtube videos I don't see any problems.

Next step will be to research its rooting capabilities. I give it a 9/10 based on its cost.

(Windows gaming pc for sale soon???)

lol, did you try XBMC on it as yet?

@arc....I still have my two Sharkoons....longest lasting headsets to date. Kudos to them.

Is this new model superior to mine in ways that would make a gamer turn green?
