    [–] The Sony MDR-1000x Earpads Are User Replaceable! lilmanmgf 5 points ago in headphones

    I've been comparing the Bose QC35 and Sony MDR-1000x headphones for a couple of days. I was ready to jump to the Sony, but one of my reservations was if the earpads were user replaceable. I couldn't find any information on replacing them online, so I messed around with them and figured it out myself. I think they are actually easier to replace than those on the QC35s. Here is a link with some pictures as well:

    Fair point. The only thing that gets louder is the pump which becomes audible at higher temps. Not high enough to be heard when gaming with headphones, but audible. According to an app on my phone the decibel level from where I sit is 39-42 db with the fans on.

    I do, but I did get lucky on the router. When I made the groves for the door I had to make it slightly thicker than the bit. When I shifted the fence I setup so the removed material was being sucked into the table. The wood flew through and my thumb went with it.

    The worst one was accidentally cutting the back too short. I added a top rail and banded it to try to hide it. Luckily it's in the back.

    I've been flying the qx95 around my apartment and it's awesome. Can't wait for the snow to melt so I can fly the 260.

    Thinning it allows for the air bubbles to come out more easily. You end up putting less poly per coat because of it, but it seems to level out easier. The 200 grit sand before the last coat helped a lot too.

    I ran a 2 hour stress test maxing out the GPU and CPU with Prime95 and GPU Test. I saw no increase in temps in either over having it sit in the open air and remained stable the entire time.

    Everything I found for maple said to stop sanding at 200 grit before finishing. I sand at 80, 120, 200. If you have a Maple or Cherry and want to color it use a water based dye like Transtint. It doesn't hide the grain, but gives a nice color. I personally used a wipe on polyurethane mixing 50% oil based poly with 50% mineral spirits. After the first two coats sand starting with 200 grit. If you want a mirror finish like mine go up to 2000 grit and wet sand in between coats.

    I'm 5'5", plenty of room. I sized it specifically for me. It wouldn't seat taller individuals comfortably though.

    The intake is on the front, and the exhaust is on the back. The goal is to have the heat dump out the back.

    This is honestly the first project I really undertook. At first I was going to attempt a bookcase, but I decided to jump in feet first. I've always wanted to make something like this, and the timing was just right.

    It was suggested that I post this here as well. The computer portion is easily removable and transportable. It actually weighs less than my old tower. For anyone curious about temps:

    http://imgur.com/a/5sqgf This is 20 minutes into running a stress test. I have GPU test and Prime 95 running. Full CPU and GPU utilization. My ambient temp started at 18.5C and it went up to 22 a 3C / 7F temperature delta between the cabinet and outside. I can't imagine a case would be much better if at all, but I've honestly never measured this in a case. I know doing stress tests when the computer was out in the open yielded the same results on the GPU.
