      Caveat: The Radeon HD 6670 wasn't enough to push my ultra wide, so I have a 7870 on loan form a cousin. The Intel SSD isn't my finest moment, but its what was in stock at the local store during a catastrophic drive failure.

          I actually have a 4U rack mount case here I was thinking about putting this is for the hell of it. Wife might kill me though she already things this thing is big and loud.

                It's not bad, the ultra wide. I got the 29um57-p I thought I was buying the 29um55-p the 55 allows for picture by picture from two different devices and uses LGs version of synergy.

                 

                Thanks I'd like to jump to the fm2/fm2+ platform, and of course build it smaller a day quieter.

                I did a major cleaning, cable management and a 10ft mod today.

                    WOW!!! You've just proven that sometimes a little cleaning and cable management can bring back a pc it looks great!  And that decal, magnificent!

                        It's a bit quieter too. I took The side fans off. I have two up front as intakes and the two in the back in push/pull as an intake as well. I with I had a magnetic filter for that one. Rads are so difficult to blow out.

                         

                        I'm calling the drive cage removal as a 10ft mod (looks good from 10ft away) there's a little electrical tape sleeving my 24pin connector too. but I was trying to do this without spending any money on it.
