COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Advanced
XIGMATEK Cooling System XLF XLF-F1256 120mm LED Blue Case Fan

Some early pics with my old computer CM690 by the new desk/monitor setup and my Obutto sim Cockpit.



Still have to add new blinds or a black curtain system to darken the room. Gotta thank the wife for giving up the dining room we never eat in. :lol:
That's one of my two old Samsung 226BW monitors to the side. They still are great monitors.

Thank you gentlemen.

I don't know if I can do without my Genuine imitation marble floor! :lol: Besides I'm going to put the cockpit on some kind of locking rollers to allow mobility. Bought some dark blue curtains for the windows. Should clash real nice with the wall color my wife and kids picked out years ago. :roll:

Welcome, the i5-750 is a very underrated CPU! The 760 performs even better again for pretty much the same cash now, but both are good!

Enjoy.
