    I'm always amazed at how much people a.) underestimate how much power a single socket can provide or b.) overestimate how much power devices draw. You can pull a rated maximum of 3.12kW from a single socket & I would very much doubt whether all of that kit is even breaking the 500W mark. (This 3.12kW is assuming, of course, that the circuit isn't maxed out in the other rooms by multiple fan heaters...)

    I thought that there was also a limit of 13 amps. And my computer uses 5, monitor 3, speackers 3......

    Assuming your computers being old only use 3(?!). Thats 3*3, plus 3*3 for monitors. 18 amps, 6 over what the socket is rated for!

    Re: Show Us Your Workspace/Desk

    It is 13 Amps. 13 Amps and 230 Volts (220 on the continent) and using the equation P=IV (power=current*voltage) you get 13x230=2990W so I'm not sure where the 3.12kW which requires 14 amps unless I did something wrong.

    Sorry, I just had to dart in there with the mini physics session

    Your PC uses 1150w?
    Monitor 690w?
    Speakers 690w?


    I'd hazard a guess those are the ratings of the fuses in the plugs, not the amount they draw.

    I just installed the shelf the monitor is sitting on and thought I'd show it off. It's the slide-out keyboard tray from the desk. I took off the metal bits on the side, installed a couple of shelf brackets underneath it and voila!

    The reason for this is that my monitor has the most epically unstable stand. Typing 'hard' on the keyboard would jiggle the monitor and I couldn't be bothered with it anymore. The screen is awesome, terrific image reproduction, but you can get less jiggling going on at a Jamaican midnight party.

    An additional benefit is that I can still hide away my keyboard, which slides perfectly underneath the new monitor shelf.

    Nay, it's rough and 'grippy'. That's just the camera flash reflecting off the logo.

    Re: Show Us Your Workspace/Desk

    I just changed my heatsink from AC7 to eXtreme Ultra 120 :0 very pleased with it and it runs SILENT!! amazing! it really is, the AC7 was loud unless i turned it low, the new Heatsink runs at less than 1000rpm though, is that going to be ok?

    also since i didnt have the heat sink thing that pushed the heatsink onto the cpu i used the extra ones i got from the true to do a "make-do" one. used some foamy thing so that theere is pressure pushing it down, and my god it was hard to get on!
    also the bracket holes only allowed me to put the heastink this way, its going to fine right? i have turned off the roof fan though.. its just for general use and no OC though. (please dont ask why i upgraded HS then lol)

    It is indeed the HAF, I have been looking at this case and think it looks awesome. Then again I have been looking at the XClio 1000/ 2000 (?)

    Yes, it's the CM HAF 932. It's my first build and it seems great. Very big but with plenty of room inside. Very quiet with the 3 big fans. I like the look as well but it's a personal taste thing really... Only downside I would say is the lack of dust filters for the fans. It does require a dusting now and again.
