Haha, that's how my cables are. \o/ It's just hidden behind a chunk of wood.

I didn't realize Silverstone had a Tech Talk section on their website until today. There's so much great information there on airflow in computer cases. I'd recommend that you guys go check it out if you care about airflow.

 

All of the airflow articles there are great EXCEPT the one regarding the Stack Effect (natural movement of air due to convection. Ex. wind on Earth due to the uneven heating of the Earth's surface + atmosphere). In computer cases, the airflow caused by the stack effect is too low to impact airflow.

 

Still love Silverstone's 90 degree rotated motherboard though since it relieves stress on the PCB of heavier graphics cards to prevent warping/bending. All the stress is put on the expansion slot bracket instead which is much sturdier.

hahaha you should see all the wires and the power strip under my desk.   It's 10x worse.  Ever since I put my ssd in I'm just leaving both sides off my case and there is absolutely zero wire management at all.

My short PSU wires, and need for adapters for my second GPU leaves a mess of wires slightly visible to public view in my case :(

In my case, I moved the included fan to side and it isn't a 3-pin, so I have an ugly Molex sitting there.

Oh gosh...that Micro Stutter in BF4

All of my envy...ALL OF IT.

 

So I go and buy a T901 a week ago for just under $300 shipped, which is a pretty good price given the price premium T901s usually command...except it's the configuration that's gimped with only Intel graphics and no finger touch support, along with only having a 250 GB HDD instead of a SSD. (And I only found out about the lack of finger touch when it arrived in the mail, too. It's not something I need nearly as much as the Wacom Penabled digitizer, but it's nice to have the choice, you know? Especially if you plan on developing Tablet PC software and want to make use of combined pen and touch...)

 

Then this one shows up when I've got no money to spend. $425 shipped for my near-ideal Tablet PC...argh.

 

Sure enough, the later T902 and T904 got rid of the dedicated graphics option and also don't have ExpressCard slots, meaning that it's much harder to set up a PE-4L-based external GPU. They don't have Thunderbolt either, so forget external PCIe bays...

 

Ideally, I'd have some kind of mobile workstation, something kinda Acer Aspire R7 or HP Pavilion HDX-ish in terms of screen hinge, except now it's holding up what amounts to a built-in Wacom Cintiq like those Tablet PCs of yore, only larger.

 

The main difference between such a machine and the Wacom-equipped Tablet PCs I'm familiar with, were it to exist? DEDICATED GRAPHICS THAT DON'T SUCK. Seriously, you'd think they'd notice things like GPU acceleration in Photoshop and Black Ink, then build a machine that can keep up without forcing people to lug around a laptop and a Cintiq monitor that still needs AC power.

 

But no, even Wacom doesn't get it, and THEY'RE the ones who have the artist market. $2,000+ for a Cintiq Companion that runs on last-gen Ivy Bridge hardware and STILL doesn't offer a dedicated GPU? What kind of sick joke is that?

 

Sorry, just had to rant a bit. Here I am, staring an untapped niche in the face for which no product exists at ANY price. It's kinda irritating, really.

I just found out a company I have received a review from also makes GPU's and just released a custom GTX 780..... :basshead:

 

Sadly, I can't really review that thing.

If I did a Prodigy build, would I be able to just carry that thing over to a friend's plae and not worry about warping or damaging the internals?
