True that. I meant the case with the actual computer inside is more portable. No monitor is truly portable. But if you LAN then pick up the case and go !

I have noticed zero difference in anything and I came from a 144 hz monitor. The colors pop and I love it so far! Edit : 144hz had a 1ms reponse.

It was a SATA controller. Sorry about the long response time. And yeah the big CPU controller is definitely a problem but you can probably fix that by getting slimmer fans instead of the fat ones corsair gives ya. I hope everything worked out for ya bud!

The speakers are amazing but my answer will be 'depends'. They are studio monitors meaning they will not try to amp up the bass and do other "tricks" to make music sound good. They are high quality speakers with the emphasis on obtaining a flat frequency response. Basically, the goal with those monitors is to make music sound as truthful to the original as possible, hence pretty much all musicians use them to produce music. That being said if you pair them with a good DAC like the modi 2 uber you can pretty much customize the sound to whatever you want it to sound like. If you are just looking for speakers that sound musically good there are cheaper options out there but if you are looking for high fidelity audiophile grade speakers and want to get into producing music in the future cant get more value than the HS7's. Try googling studio monitors as computer speakers and youll find out more.

TLDR : A bit overkill for computer speakers but if you are looking for high fidelity clear sound and plan to get into producing music in the future these are it.

I have the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB SC+ GAMING ACX 2.0+. I did not find the model in the part list so I just put the 980 TI in there. If you want an amazon link here it is : http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Installed-Backplate-Graphics-06G-P4-4995-KR/dp/B00YDAYOK0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1457669771&sr=8-1&keywords=evga+980ti Edit: Also edited the post to mention issues.

Yeah it maxes out Rleague at 144 fps, doesnt every dip below that. Recently I got a stable 50+ FPS on everything maxed and I mean literally everything maxed out on the Rise of the tomb raider. It was pretty awesome!

Idk but the H75 and the fact that like pretty much every grill in the case is covered in fans is pretty nice. I've got good airflow figured out too. I attached a speed-fan screenshot when idle.

Really cool so far ! The 980Ti apparently doesn't even turn on the fan until it hits 60 and when it does it aggressively cools so I never break 75 usually. CPU even under load is extremely cool and usually idle its always between 10-17. I honestly dont know how its so hella cool but thats what speed fan says. I added a screenshot
