    Very tidy :thumbup: Next you'll be telling us its always like that, and that you didn't clean up just for the pic :lol:
    Nice, I like it. One tiny complaint though, the flouro green headphone stand triggers me a little...

    I guess you don't have this issue of second-guessing yourself? Would take me half the day to do something like that since my inner voice would nag at me saying "Just you watch, You'll eff it up.." but that came out awesome!

    got the PC3600 its the amd version (lol my bad when ordering, even worse was that the store i purchased from totally disregarded the email and ph call i gave them before shipping it)
    read a few reviews saying it still worked better on an intel system and hasnt missed a beat in the current one

    Got sick of waiting for a RTX3080, so snapped up a 2080 Super for cheap chucked the G12 on it and sitting nice at 45deg with 2100 core and 9000 memory.

    Yes that is 1x16 Lego stopping the card sagging :)

    two things..

    1.
    Got rid of the wraith prism cooler on my 3700x as the noise was killing my life!
    Wanted to save money so got the Hyper 212 white edition as the RGB one was $10 more.
    *Facepalm* didn't like the non-RGB white fans it came with, so went out and spent an extra $38 on two new fans LOL.

    2.
    Got this amazing $20 Kmart headphone holder :)

    Love the headphone holder. Does it charge too? :D My headphones are wireless and come with a charging cradle, but it's not as nice as that one.
