    Charles: It was nice talking to you today and great job once again with Daniel's murderbox and your relentless attention to detail and top-quality photography. I can't wait to see the new ideas and possibilities that will be popping up in your next murderbox build :)

    To Everyone Else: Widescreen wallpapers (16:10, 1680x1050, 1920x1200, 2560x1600) on Daniel's build will soon be available to download. Should be available sometime this week.

    Cleanest cabling and loop design i've seen in a long while. This is epic stuff mate, i especially like the GPU-block visible through the top, and how you used slot 4 & 6 for the cards. Another great succes of this build is the effect on the HDDs, very very impressive.

    Now all we need is a better connector for motherboard ATX, so we don't need to clog up the case with a zilion cables in an awkward turn. Your execution is spot on, but i can't help but feel that there should be a better way to deliver those 24 wires. I'm not sure there is though...

    The thing that floats my boat most about this project is how straight and simple the hoses on the CPU and GFX loop look.

    A very very cool build Charles, I saw it on MDPC over the weekend, beautiful work. I am a big fan of all your work, truly stunning, I am very envious of your skills. Glad to see you finally over here on B-T. +rep

    I have 1 question though. I understand that those 3 Matrix Orbital displays require USB power (1 each), as does the Aquaro. I see that you are using a USB hub to power them all but how exactly did you hook them to the system to get the data to display? I was thinking of doing something similar with 2 displays but realized that each display needed a USB port and if I wanted to use the internal motherboard mounted USB connectors I wouldn't be able to use my front panel USB ports. Are you running all 4 displays through the same connector?

    Thanks in advance :D.

    Usually I would choose not to reference a terrible song, or part thereof, when commented on something as awesome as this, but....

    I jizzed in my pants!:jawdrop:

    Absolutely stunning build and the attention to detail is phenomenal!

    Don't internal USB headers contain connection for 2 separate USB connections?

    Sorry to thread drift :worried:

    Yeah they do but I didn't know how to rig both displays onto a single header.

    I must confess I was too lazy to read the whole log so I mostly browsed through the eye candy. Wow! Nice tools and really good outcome!
