    ^^ At the bottom right corner of the bookshelf, I'm seeing some leatherbound Barnes & Nobles editions of literary classics :) They look amazing, have been looking into getting some of the titles.

    I decided I couldn't wait for the rest of my stuff on its way from my last duty assignment in Turkey, so I went ahead and picked up some new computer speakers to complete my new workstation, along with a new desk.

    That's super clean for having literally no storage nearby. Looks great.

    The new rig I put together recently; I completed the desk some time ago but made the stand a few weeks back. Lighting is a recent addition.

    Water cooling will be finished this weekend hopefully. And I have a monitor stand on the way to give me some more desk space. Also planning on a new desk purchase soon. But here it is as of now! Specs in sig.

    That is one hell of a clean setup. Any details on the stand?

    Thank you. It's scratch built - MDF, hardwood, self levelling feet, durable blackboard vinyl, metal ROG sticker, ribbed rubber surface to prevent slipping, RF controlled RGB lighting and a cavity in the rear to store unsightly cables. It took a couple of days to build.

    Haha! It's quite a friendly computer really, and very understanding.

    Something arrived today. I'll need to get this all set up properly though:

    I'll be using it with this when I get it finished:

    It'll take a while to get my space legs it seems. Going to have to take my Elite Dangerous training slowly by the looks of things ...

    This is my entertainment room.
    The pano is to my girlfriends specifications.
    She doesn't want a couch or even bean bags. She likes to lay a blanket on the ground as if every time we watch a movie, football, or tv, it's a picnic. (With an easily accessible fridgerator for her wine, my wine, and my game enhancing beer.)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    There are only 3 cables attached to the desk. (One power strip, the Display port cable, and one USB 3.0 cable) When we don't watch movies, which is 99% of the time, the desk can easily be moved to the center of the room to take advantage of the surround. You don't have to fiddle with anything, just pull the desk out. Everything is double sided velcroed so that it can be removed for cleaning, but also stays in place. (The computer stays in place, there's no reason to move it).

    I do need some better cable management in my life. Just not today.
    [​IMG]

    Here is the inside of my beast:
    [​IMG]
    I need actual wall decorations, but I spent all my money on gaming.

    And my Specs:
    i7-2600k
    16GB Corsair Something
    500GB 840 Samsung EVO
    SLI 1080
    Corsair 850 CS850M
    Asus PG279Q

    Sound:
    Interestingly, my onboard sound is disabled.
    Yamaha RX-A760
    4x Klipsch RP-280F
    2x Klipsch RP-140SA
    Klipsch RP-250C
    Klipsch R-112SW
    Mic = Scarlett Solo + Seinnheiser e835
    And a Dell USB Soundbar, which I dedicate only to comms. It keeps the game sounding crisp, and it keeps people from yelling across my house. (In game, Vent, Teamspeak, Discord, etc).
    There is a 3.5mm under the desk for headphones, but I don't currently own any.

    To be entirely fair, the stock intel coolers were not as crap during Sandy Bridge. But that isn't saying much. I replaced mine solely to quite down my desktop.

    All that money and a stock CPU Cooler?!

    [​IMG]

    Did you get the 1080's as a deal? Or did you buy them strait up because paring two 1080's with an i7 2600k & DDR3 Makes now flippin' sense whatsoever.

    You'd be suprised. i7-2600k utilizes a pair of 1080's just fine, even with a intel heatsink. It's not like I reached a cpu/memory bottleneck.

    My rather ridiculous setup. 1x maxed out hex core Mac Pro - D700, 64GB RAM, 1TB SSD. 3x overpriced (and now endangered) Apple Thunderbolt displays. It's a good bit of kit, but not without its issues.
