Okay's Guys This is a lit bit old but I didn't take any clear shot of the rig or the bed, so later I update the thread.
that's it for now
How is the Ultra X3 PSU? Is the fan noisy?
I have a Corsair HX520, and it's not even pictured.
You have me very confused :S
Lol Damn... I tried to guess your PSU by the cords (To look smart but failed) it looked like the Ultra X3's flex cables.
I have an Ultra PSU (the X1 or whatever they called it) and it's not very loud at all, I can't hear it over my case fans. But you're right the cables do look the exact same.
Hey you might be able to help me (People say Ultra products suck), I am about to buy the Ultra X3 seeing someone who has a PSU from Ultra is rare for me. How much watts does your PSU have? And have you ran into any major problems? and most of all how do you feel about the PSU overall, looks, cable management...etc
I noticed you've got some cisco books down there!
Looks like someone else has picked up the Berry monitors.
I can't say anything about the 2031's as I have not heard them, but the 2030p/a's are easily the best speaker you can buy before you start spending $500.
On and off axis response are just insane. The waveguide for the tweeter is unlike anything else.
Just get a Corsair
Ultra quiet, very stable, dependable and fantastic customer support
Mine is 600W it's been a decent PSU. The cable management is pretty good except for the 20+4 pin which is quite thick and hard to hide anywhere. It isn't completely modular though...the 4+4 and the 20+4 are always connected and then the rest attach via molex to the PSU. Personally I wouldn't buy it again, I would buy something like the Corsair, but it came with my case and I haven't had any problems with it yet.
Here's my setup, im rather new here at bit-tech
and my main PC, it has a Evga 780i motherboard, 700Watt Kingwin modular power supply, you can see five hard drives in the pic, the top two are WD 500Gb then a WD 250Gb a Seagate 200GB and the bottom is a Seagate 1TB, a MSI 8800GTS video card< Creative Sound Blaster X-fi Xtreme Audio sound card, 3GB OCZ ram, and a Intel core Two dou.
waiting for cash so i can get a second wc loop
Aye, I LOVE them. And tbh, I wouldn't spend $500 on some speakers, as you should really jump up to the next bracket and spend about $750-1k/speaker.
The passive version of mine are pretty much the same, if you've got a good amp.
I've swapped mine to my TV, as I'll be doing a 5.1 setup with them. Though I'll have to get the Onkyo 806 receiver, rather than the 606 because the 606 doesn't have pre-outs. The passive monitors would work GREAT on a 606. But, you get just a bit better quality when you get active speakers as the amps are designed FOR the speaker, and are fully balanced. This helps with taking stress off the receiver, as consumer grade receivers aren't really 130w each speaker. These speakers DO need some power to drive them. So either get a PA class amp, or get active monitors.
Unfortunately it'll be at least a few months before I get the 5.1 setup all nice. Still need a TV stand, couple more pairs of monitors (they don't come seperate), and the receiver + cables.
I'll probably start a seperate "post your home theatre" thread for that. I am redoing my Den a lot... so the least I could do is show what I've done with my computer setup...

Oh hey whats your favorite case?
I'm learning Accessing the WAN this semester, the final part for the CCNA.
I'm going to eventually order the rest of the books to have and to use as a resource. I'm glad Cisco decided to keep their books cheap!
they really are that good.
I'd have to say the Antec 300. The p182 are really nice, but not a whole lot quieter than the 300. And the cost factor - the p182 is almost three times what the 300 costs. the 300 is also smaller and much lighter. Air flow is about the same in both cases too. 2x 120mm fans in the front, 2x 120mm fans on the back/top. Plus the PSU fan. Though, the 300 does have a side fan, but usually I've found this to hinder cooling, whether it takes air in or expels it.
What dose each machine do? the old biege beast looks as if its a firewall or NAS maybe..
but 3 300's and a P182 , makes me want to know why! lol!
