    It's so much bigger than I thought it would be, best so nice. The white is really brilliant and the plastic matches exactly. Having just done a build in an 011D I was worried this wouldn't be as nice, but i'd say the fit and finish is better. And that's an honest opinion, not just cause they're sponsoring me :hehe:

    TWO 200mm intakes...?? I thought my old Nine Hundred having a 200mm exhaust roof fan was OTT.

    Cooler Master did it a while back. Sadly they then put a solid plastic front in it haha. So it was crap.

    New (to me) chair arrived. And the monitor.

    So much more space for activities! I don't know what to do with all this extra resolution.

    I went from 1920*1200 to 2560*1440 and it feels like going from 4:3 to 16:9 back in the day. It's both terrifying and awesome.

    Aye, I think that when I eventually upgrade from 1920*1200 it'll have to be to at least 1440p as I couldn't hack losing any vertical resolution. Funny how that extra 120 pixels over 1080p actually makes a huge difference.

    I made about 300 front ends for an emulator when I had a 1600x1200 CRT. Imagine my disgust as 1080p rolled out, and they were all unplayable because the button panels were missing FFS.

    The prevalence of 1920*1080 is what made me buy the 2408. I already had a pair of benq monitors but they were *1200, so the concept of mixing that *1080 crap in made my blood angry.

    All I remember of mine was Philips Light frame? something like that. It wasn't light at all, it just had this feature that would burn your eyeballs out if you enabled it lol
