New Desk from Ikea - a work in progress - hopefully will be building a new system to go along with it this October around my birthday.



Went with a Linnmon Corner table (will expand to the right with another 40x23" piece later, 5x Olov Adjustable legs & one of the cable management trays.

Pretty solid desk for $150 and it looks really nice too!

Built every aspect of this desk. It's 10' wide and 90" tall and disassembles into 11 parts. Just completed the side extension where I plan on building my first sever rack so I haven't gotten the edge trim on the desk surface. The desktop surfaces are made up of two pieces of 3/4" sub-floor quality particle board screwed together to form a single piece and single sheets of 1/4" HDPE. I have 3x24" Acer displays, a 32" above and my 22" Monoprice drawing tablet and of course my laptop. The speakers are Dayton Audio b652's with a Lepai amp driven by a Fiio Alpen E17 and E09K.

This desk is a tank and I can stand and sit on it and it doesn't move a bit.

I have the Water Pump and most of the fans turn on when either switch/motherboard is on. The Phantek Power Splitter is great for this.

finally finished cable management/hiding, took about an hour but im really happy how it came out (minus tv portion)

i do miss the multi-monitor setup but this 40" 4k monitor is freaking awesome, though its really big and takes up so much space

didnt really anticipate it but the spider-man theme just kinda happened... now i just gotta find a proper spot for the new 50th anniversary framed variant set thats sitting on the floor.
















my cable management process. ended up using black foam board to hide some of the cables that go from the monitor down the back and glued 2 pieces together to wedge underneath the table to hide the cable tray and power bar

Very nice setup.

I have that same AMP/DAC - TEAC AI-101DA. I get a very noticeable delay when using USB or optical, with or without upconvert. Do you notice this at all? Otherwise it's great.

i havent had any issues with the DAC, are you having delays with it out of sync with video or when it you turn it on and it connects to device? on the latter i get about 2 flashes(<1 sec) before it connects which for me isnt a long time at all

Yeah boot up time is noticeable but forgiveable. I'm talking about out of sync audio / video.

New workstation configuration for mid/late 2016. Taken with a potato - sorry. Room size shrank this year so my desk size did too. Normal day to day dust and clutter, sorry to the neat nazi's.

I could ahve sworn I had already posted my workstation here, but I don't see it anywhere.

Maybe I typed up a post and forgot to hit the "Post Reply" button?

Anyway the front page suggested posting ones workstation, so I guess I have to :p


Here's the case itself:

You were my inspiration to go for a big 4K Samsung TV! :)

Here is my "couch station". I run a busy ecommerce store and game, read etc from this couch in my office. The TV is a 55" 4k sony that does really well at 1080, I find 4k a bit small to read everything.
I went this way because Ive got some sort of nerve or blood flow issue in my left leg from sitting in my chair all day, so laying down like this works great.
I made a small table that goes beside the couch for my mouse and keyboard sits on my lap.

(y) on your Deck FP! Love that keyboard!

Great, but crowded, workstation, too. ;)

I have a 5 year old bringing me artwork every day and it piles up quickly. Also have a newborn so haven't gotten around to cleaning lately. I work from home, and I get used to seeing all the crap on the desk and then it doesn't bother me anymore. Cleaning it now though, but too lazy to take a new picture. :)

I finally created an account after years of lurking, since my newly updated basement room is nearly done and I saw this thread on the front page. Someday I'll finish the walls and ceiling properly, but for now it's close enough to perfect for me. (And sorry to the New England haters ;)

It's a bit dusty and the lights washed some pics out, but you get the idea. 135" EliteScreens screen with Panasonic AE3000U projector, G920 Wheel + OpenWheeler chair/mount, PC + Oculus Rift. The next upgrade I'd like is a 1080 GPU and Gsync monitor. I'm still using a 5-year-old Dell 1440p monitor as my main display with a GTX 780 driving it. *Edit for typos*

Just got my Steelcase Ology height adjustable desk today... Thing is freaking awesome. Super sturdy, the cable management accessories are awesome for getting all of the cables tucked away. Unfortunately I had to pay extra for that but it was worth it. I just got the desk today, so what you see is just a quick setup. I might spend time at a later date organizing cables, but it's pretty good for a quick setup (spent probably about 2 hours total including putting everything on the desk and plugging everything in.

Anyhow the light behind the desk is a Philips Hue Bloom light, so I can set whatever background color I want behind the monitor. I love that thing.

Canon what is the depth of the frame itself? I tried checking Steelcase's website, but they are decidedly spartan with details.

Dude, I'm looking for some good height adjustable legs. You say it's sturdy, but can you tell me how wobbly it is when you lean on it with it extended at height? Maybe on a scale of 1-10?

Looks great man. I'm jelly.

The depth of the sides is 24". The sides are both 70" long but there are options for different lengths, shapes, grommets (which I got on mine) etc.

If you are researching, there is a PDF on the Steelcase website with all of the options, specs, accessories etc. It's like 100 pages, so it's a bit tricky finding the details but they are there.

Also as for the stability of the desk, even when all the way up... It's easily a 10. The thing feels like a brick shithouse... If you have wobbly monitor stands, there is zero chance of them wobbling while you type. I think the 3 leg design really contributes to that.

Also, even with all my GEAR loaded on the table, there is no sign of the mechanism straining to lift the weight. You can make very fine adjustments to height and the presets always return to the exact height you set.

Picked up a new Monitor and moved my PC to the floor to clear up some space.

Updated workstation picture.

Found my old HP 2335 monitor at my parents house and am using it as a secondary monitor.

Also, got a GTX 970 from my brother since he upgraded to a new GTX 1080 until I can get my 1070.

Someday, someone is gonna make a lot of money by designing one of those extended mouse pads that curves to fit a desk like yours and my Galant.

I'd buy 5 on day one.

Aren't they basically neoprene with some stitching around the edge to clean it up? I'm thinking you could find the fabric, and someone to sew it up for you, at a fabric store. Or hit up MSCDirect and try to make one your self.
