    Question: Does those eye gear actually help out with eye fatigue? I always heard about gaming glasses, but I never had a chance to ask someone if they actually work XD

    Besides that point, keep up the good work :rock::rock: I was so happy to see this on top of the list in the project logs forum XD bummer it wasnt an "actual update" :3

    I have no clue. I know they're available. I would think they'd be as expensive as regular prescription glasses.

    Otherwise I would have gone for the MSI Mpower. The pcb and all slots are basically black and heatsinks gray. And the plates on the heatsinks are easy to spray in the desired colour.

    AWWW sowwy :( I will make sure the next one is an actual update :D
    I just ordered some watercooling stuff so I can do a small update next time. Monies is sadly not growing in my garden ;)

    I don't know if they work. I am giving them a go right now. I trust in the fact they work. I have always wanted to try them so I will report back at a later point in time :)

    That sounds promissing :)

    I also do a lot of accounting work. And indeed we're hours behind our pc screen.

    Must say I'm a real sucker for black and orange builds, it's one of those colour combos that just works for me. Also I too am curious about whether those glasses really work. I do a lot of graphic design and programming so when colour correctness isn't an important factor, reducing eye strain would be a real boon to me. Looking forward to future updates!

    Looking good Hukkel.

    I've always been very sceptical about those goggles, would be nice to get some hands on experience from normal user (you!) instead of a reviewer. :)

    Very, very good so far, love the mobo tray. Is it your design or a bought product, looks great either way :)

    Because of this post I looked back in the topic and checked the mobo tray, I somehow totally missed it when I viewed the topic. Just wanted to say that this:

    [​IMG]

    is awesome! Those cableguides/separators should indeed be a standard feature of high end cases. :thumb:

    Thanks a lot for your comment! Hope to have updates soon. My WC stuff should be here early feb.

    I will not dissappoint you Meelobee! :thumb:

    And I completely agree on your added reply. High end cases should feature something similar!

    The tray is a stock design, the maker usually customises it to the mobo of the buyer. he is ace. www.coldzero.eu

    No sorry man. I am awaiting some parts before I can make a next move. Have some new sleeving colour coming in. Some XSPC parts. And busy with Coldzero to create some other custom plexi parts I wanted to use. So I really want to have something new to show you guys. But I just haven't. Hopefully next week my XSPC stuff will arrive and so will the sleeving. I can start doing work on that.

    Also finally another package with watercooling stuff I need. Going to try and fit some stuff this weekend. I can now measure some cabling and such. I can't wait!

    These parts come from HD-PCWorks in Holland. Without a discount they're the cheapest watercooling shop in Holland.

    Subbed.

    @Gunnar glasses

    They do work. For the price, I don't feel like they're exactly worth it to me but the amber colored lenses make everything shift towards a warmer color, which is easier on the eyes. It causes less eye strain. That's all.

    Personally, I don't like everything looking like that because the purpose of the properly calibrated monitor in front of you is pointless. :p
