    Hmm, well this is how the other half lives :(. Temporary desk made out of wooden planks and bricks and, yes, I have pantyhose on my computer air-intakes. I have no shame.

    Nothing wrong with a little DIY solution like cinder blocks and wood sheets. I've seen $10k setups that look like their desk belonged next to a pig's feeding trough.

    What matters is that it is clean, which is more than can be said about most workstations. You devoted time and effort to making it look nice given what you had available to you. If it's clean, it means you take pride in it and its deserving of respect from everyone else.:cool:

    I guess I could've cleaned up a bit better. This is my temporary setup, probably going to move in the next few weeks, at which point I'll go back to my real desk that I much prefer the look of, a glass top with black accents.

    Sorry for the poor lighting.

    Why not?

    The only thing I find wrong with the setup is he probably needs to find a way to reclaim desk space with some monitor mounts. The monitor on the far left is running out of space to sit.

    I would suggest monitor arms, anchored to either the desk or the wall. Would save a ton of space in this instance, especially if he has some uses that require desk space and only one monitor.

    That is actually a butcher block top from lowes. I sanded it and finished it. It's a 98" top with two ikea cabinets.

    Guess I should'a read your sig more closely. I'm thinking about a pair of Zensors, but it's hard to find them anywhere to audition.

    Well, I have moved things around a bit since last year and added some new LED lighting.

    For the ambient lighting behind my monitor, I have a Philips Hue Bloom:
    Philips 259515 Friends of Hue Personal Wireless Lighting Bloom Single, Retail - - Amazon.com

    For the case lighting, I got an NZXT Hue+ lighting kit, so I can change the colors in my case too. :)

    This is my current main system. Just getting ready to tear it down to build the new one. Thought I'd get some shots before I do.

    this is my living room, sold my 144hz monitor to pay some bills, stuck with only usb 15.6" monitor, and a 39" emerson 1080p 60hz tv (with a ungodly long response time...but I still quake)

    I'm moving up to a 6800K, X99. HX850i, 32GB DDR4 3000MHz, Noctua D15s, Phanteks Enthoo Pro M, Samsung Evo 950 Pro M.2 SSD and some of the Corsair ML series fans. I haven't decided on a new GPU yet, waiting to see what Vega has to offer and considering the 1060 as well when we have more info. Then I'm moving some parts over like the HDD, optical, and sound card. I'll use the old GPU until I pick a new one. Then I'll move that to my Mame machine.

    What board are you looking at for the X99? I have the EVGA X99 Classified and I'm extremely happy with it.

    I didn't want to spend much more than about $200 on the mobo, which limited my options. I ended up going with the Asus X99A.
