Not much to say here Strong It's fast...and is more stable than my single life LOL
I did notice that the Syndicate comes with 4 wheels on the bottom, but is not pictured on the website. These can be easily removed with a screwdriver.
 
As for games, I've only had time to mess around with Guild Wars 2. Maximum settings in world vs world and I always remain above 60 fps (according to Fraps).
 
The side panels on the chassis are very easy to remove in the event that I need to do some dusting. The custom lasermark and multicolored fans were also configured perfectly Big%20Smile Thanks for building such an awesome machine!

hI Faerius,

Looks great. Does it sound like a helicopter taking off most of the time? Smart to have it up on the desk.

After about 2 days I had to move it underneath my table lol. The LED fans were getting a bit distracting. Yes, the fans are kinda loud (11 fans!) but when I have it close to my feet it's not so bad. I decided to put the wheels back on since it's no longer on my desk.
 
Also, I just realized that the white LED light in the chassis can be turned off (yay!) Now I can sleep at night without having to cover the pc with my pajamas LOL
 
During the summer I also have a little moth problem in my room. The fan grills are big enough that a small moth/fly could get inside the system. Once I'm done gaming I cover the pc with some cloth just to be safe Big%20Smile
