This stock cooler is very impressive actually. It doesn't make noise. System is very quiet and the only noise is the 200mm fan at the top. This cooler was able to run Battlefield 3 at 4.3Ghz at 41C degrees. My buddy has the same i5 2500k with liquid cooling and he is getting about 40C on his for BF3 at 4.3Ghz.

Yep, nothing wrong with intel stock coolers.

Ha, trying using a 3rd party cooler, then come back and tell it doesn't make noise. The stock intel fan I got with my first gen i7, was the noisiest part of the whole system. That stupid thing had a really annoying high pitched whine to it. Then it started acting up, and was replaced by zalman model (that completely dwarfs it btw), that is nearly silent.

Hmm... mine does have a high-pitched whine and I thought it was the i5. I will try another one when I have money.

@Titoist

+100 for an impressive looking build.

-50 for the IDE cable. ;)

The IDE cable only connects the DVD Drive. I barely use it anyway. Only to install windows :p.

Poor quality, but I just had to take a photo. I found out there was a version of nyan cat that fits into an MBR, so I loaded it onto a USB key and booted all my laptops from it...

I like your figurine collection but you should look into some Gundams or some other kinds of Mobile Suits.

So you don't have wires sticking out the back, and looking like an absolute mess? If it's done really well, you can pull it off by not having it against a wall.

Putting furniture against the wall is usually the most efficient use of space (unless you have an oddly shaped room or something). I found as a kid that putting my bed against the wall ALSO maximized the space!

I don't really get the point of sticking your table out in the middle of the room, since you've probably got a large monitor blocking the view anyway. Aside from a few Apple monitors most monitors are ugly to look at from behind anyway.

Not always, mine's not (see earlier in thread for evidence).

Why do people always put their computer desks up against walls?

One of the big reasons that desks are placed near walls if for access to Power and communication ports.

95% of the time, Power and network jacks are in the wall (in some rare exceptions, they are in the floor), so placing the desk near a wall is often necessary, unless you can run cabling under a carpet, or hide it in some other fashion, placing the desk against the wall is often the easiest the most economical way to hide cabling.
