I would go with this Corsair 430w (for $19.99 after rebate) and that will cover plenty of upgrades you happen to do in the future, including a dedicated graphics card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?SID=B8f6MqDTEeOIZ-r7UEsVTAgTj3_MKFz3_0_0_0&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&Item=N82E16817139026&cm_sp=


I understand if want to go ahead and put your rig together and it won't hurt if you use your 800w PSU, just trying to save you some cash so you can put it towards audio. smily_headphones1.gif

 

extreme overkill on the PSU was by design to help keep it quiet, the fan on that psu will never come on (in theory) if I don't pull more than 400 watts-ish

There was 2 movies, I can't remember which one they are, but they both had time bombs that had liquid in them. I want to say GI Joe and I think it was a movie with Vin Diesel.  It looks a lot like your computer.

Nice cooler. Aka, block of aluminum.

Is that kind of single block of metal good for cooling the cpu? Couldn't imagine it dissipating the heat very quickly.

I think it's a hollow metal tube. If you look really closely you can just see the outline of the edges on the piece of cloth or whatever it is covering it.

Further tweaking...replacing the Focals (too boomy for the room regardless of position), really like the refinement of the LS50's but lose out on sound pressure with the amp i have.

I doubt it - the white material is probably thermal tape, and the cylinder I believe is solid.  The CPU used is a low power Ivy Bridge Xeon so the cooling requirements are not the same as high power models or Haswell models.

 

The ability for the metal block to dissipate heat is not important, it is connected to the chassis which would provide a lot of the cooling.

 

Not sure I could live with only 64 GB of stored music though.

I know I posted pictures of this before but I just love how perfectly this stand fits around the sound card. And it constantly reminds you that its playing in 32/192khz =)

Yeah, it's a terrible cooler. I have my doubts on it working at all. Unless of course there is some sort of a cooling loop in it, or it transfers the heat to some actual cooler. But the volume of metal there... it's still not very efficient.

The JBL LSR305's sound amazing. I also tried the Audioengine A5+ and the Vanatoo T1's. I returned both of those for the JBL's.

I like that, and 600/650 to match.

Love my Swan M10's. Great desktop audio for a great price:

Yes!

It is not very efficient but it works.

I have tested many CPU,

i7-4770 TPD84W after playing 720p video for 2hours,

It is not more than 40 degree.
