    He was also late to his first meeting to discuss the Superman role because he was playing WoW.

    He didn't have to turn AIO block around; you can use the NZXT cam software to re orientate the display.

    Henry Cavill is damned awesome. Enjoyed watching that and the fact he saw the world through Geralt's eyes before taking on the role earns mucho respect from me.

    I don't know how people do builds so fast! I'm obsessive with getting cables tidy and getting everything set up again takes ages. You can just boot from the old drive on Linux but anything other than a fresh Windows install is asking for trouble IME.

    Random fact; I worked at the same company as his brother until last year! We were based in different offices though

    Henry be a cool guy and all that, but did he really spread paste on the CPU before fitting a new AIO that has paste pre applied.

    He probably wiped the pre-applied stuff off and used a quality paste from a tube - like any true PC nerd.

    No, he'd orientated it incorrectly first so removed it, cleaned it and applied new paste before correcting the orientation.

    That was cool, he's loving life for sure :cool:

    I had to lol when noticing the display was upside down..! Were his radiator leads too long? It looks like they fitted better in the finished shots.

    The NZXT pipes are fairly long. I have the X72 (just a logo and lights, no display) and ran the lines to the front of the case to make it a bit cleaner and avoid having an odd loop around the rear panel of the case.

    I saw an interview with Cavill years ago before Superman came out, he was asked what it was like to play such a legendary character, his reply was something along the lines of...

    "it's hardly an iconic character, it's not exactly Shakespeare is it"

    He has had a massive shift in recent years but he used to be on a quite high horse, I wonder how much of this now is genuine and how much is pandering to his audience.
