Browns are just ***** blues that feel like they have sand in them instead of a bump. Also all browns are all made by cherry but every board will feel slightly different.

I have a Ducky with red switches, a Filco with browns and a DAS with blues. I've been using the Ducky since late December and just switched back to the DAS the other day. The Filco has been broken for a while and I'm too lazy to solder in 2 new switches.

As for the way the switches feel, it's completely subjective and you need to use them to actually get a sense of it. Watching videos or reading about them isn't enough. I liked the reds for games but didn't like them for typing. I like the blues for typing more, and I feel they are fine for video games. I seem to be in a minority here, but I really didn't like brown switches.

Edit: also what boards do you have?
I've had a Logitech g710+ for about a year now and have been very satisfied with it. Picked it up for $99, I think the price has gone up a bit since then. The g710+ does differ from other browns. There are O-rings in it so it is quieter when you bottom out with it.

Just when I was done with my custom loop... EK makes something new specific to my motherboard...



Wasn't planning to watercool my chipset or vrm's because of all the fittings and tubing... but this full cover block can use my existing fittings/tubing without adding anything.

I'm trying to find a desk monitor mount that would enable me to mount my 3 24in monitors in tri surround and then mount my 32in tv above the middle one. My current desk faces a window and the walls around it are two thin to mount anything on them. Preferably I would not have to use any drills or clamps but rather just have a large weight at the bottom. Any ideas?

after cheaping out on a case for my first build, i kind of wish i had bought a nicer one now. the fractal R4 looks really nice for $90. unless you just really want the ssd you could put that money to a nicer case until later. theres also a lot more in the sub $150 range that seem really nice. just something to consider but i know not everyone has a budget to go fancy right from the start.

I'd go with a 770 and then buy a nicer case. I thought the Fractal Design arc Midi r2 looked nice but there are plenty of options.

From what I've seen the triple monitor stands sometimes don't position monitors well, and limited to certain angles. Keep in mind that the monitors might wobble... unless you get a heavy duty stand which are expensive. This is the reason why I went with Mount-It! Articulating Single Arm Computer Monitor Desk Mount. Plus... they are cheap and easier for me to get the angles I wanted on the side screens, and it gives me the space saving I need... so I could put my consoles under the side monitors.



My kid is playing InFamous Second Son on the PS4 above... fun game.

Triple 24s can be done relatively easily, but adding the 32 on top is going to be difficult to say the least. The whole setup would be very top heavy.

For the record, I use one of these with my U2410s, which are heavier than average.
