    Under, you can see 2,5'' ssd here: https://i.imgur.com/J8eHi0Y.jpg
    There are two spots there for either 2,5 or 3,5 drive. These slots are used to store rods to secure pci-e devices, there are 4 of them, so to mount 2 drives you'd need remove all 4.

    Very nice! I've always wanted a Streacom BC1 (or BC1 mini) test bench--just too expensive for me. :(

    Hi

    Here are some photos of the workstation and the entire house that I´ve been developing since I was eighteen years old, I´d like to share some of the projects and knowledge about green energy and sustainability.

    I tried to capture the house exactly how it looks when you arrive and get into to, is a little dark because is a man cave I took maybe 10 shots to make one photo and was pretty hard to capture the vision that we have when you sit to play something or watch a movie.

    I have two setups, the first one is for gaming, movie and work, the second one is for watch movies with friends and family. The entire house is powered by green energy, I have one sun water heater for the hot water, all the house were made using recycle parts from another houses / company's. I will try to list everything that I have here, some people think that the house is not real because looks like one store or playland, the truth is that neverland from MJ was my inspiration and I´m not even close of that...haha The house has automation for everything, I can turn on the lights, music, movie, the kitchen and even control the pressure of the water, the temp and the flow.

    The room and the office are jumped together with cables from outside of the house, so If you want to play games in setup 2 you just need to change the monitor and audio setup. If you want to watch some movie in setup 1 from setup 2, you just have to change the entry in Denon receiver, all the house is connected together and working as it should after long years of test and programming. In the setup 1 if you want to play using TV you just need to change to monitor 2, if you want to use the headphones just change the audio output for Razer board, if you want to play using headphone in setup 1 with cockpit you just need to grab the second Razer Tiamat and plug in the Sony receiver.

    I´m so sorry for the bad quality of some photos, I had to use my cellphone because my lens could not take the photo so close. maybe I will do one update when I get one canon 10/22 mm. Me and my friends use to do some lan parties over here, there is one video of us doing one stress test with Asus and the ISP. Since everything in the house has one IP and access to the internet, the 400 / 200 ISP link sometimes is less for what the house want, right now the Asus is showing me 5 / 6 TB of traffic peer month, crazy right?

    Some shots:

    zb7HbXq.jpg

    This is the electric panel of the house, everything were made by hand and with Siemens products for best quality, I use one sand fuse for setup 1 and another one for setup 2, that´s filter the noise from power surge and delivery clean energy for the entire house, also it has DPS for rain lighting protection, two grounds, even for the cable TV and telephone line, all the receptacles are hospital grade, kitchen receptacles are waterproof.


    Smappee product

    With the red Acer laptop that I use to work ( I left it plugged in the table because is more fast and easy to get out and get in when I need to do some fast jobs/projects with customers ).

    This is how I use the system, almost with all the lights off and just some little blue and warm light to keep the climate of men´s cave.

    The second monitor for play games or watch movies / Chromecast videos ( smart TV ).

    .

    Cockpit mode


    XL22BXr.jpg


    The couch get´s out of the room and I install the cockpit for play some games on tv, we can use the 7.1 home theater or the Razer Tiamat 7.1 if there´s someone in the same room using another computer / arcade and we don´t want to disturber or make so much noise.

    This is the back view of the couch / cockpit setup with surround speakers


    ITM5f9Y.jpg

    .

    This is an old project that I´ve made in the past, it uses one computer inside with Hyperspin and almost 500 GB of games and emulators, built in speakers and one original CRT tube from 1990, also one coin selector that works with 25 cents.

    The entry view of the house with arcade in the background and kitchen / cinema room.

    FmolVRV.jpg

    .

    This is the setup 2, the photo looks like a little ''dead'' and with no life because of the poor lighting, sometimes is hard to take one shot of some place that is dark almost 90% of the time like one movie theater.

    Close up with all the spikes for and bases for isolation/vibration

    This is the back view of the room / kitchen, the kitchen were made with old bricks from 1960, it has automation in lights, kitchen appliances and food garbage disposal, also it uses one Nest protect v2 to monitoring all the activity of the place.

    The gas burner that I did, less space = creativity to solve the problem.

    First post in years... Decided to clean up the gaming workstation, and five hours later, I'm satisfied.

    Fascinating. Your place has a custom touch to it that comes through clearly. What kind of green energy are you utilizing?

    So I decided to clean up the cables and remove my extra monitors other than my x34p

    Then I decided that something was missing:

    I like both of the ones I have. I only wish I had one of their standing desks.

    I also have an old Jerker in my attic. It's the big flat version. No way am I parting with it... ever.

    Got a new Uplift standing desk and mounted my monitor on an Ergotron MX. Super happy with the result. Cannot believe I've been using normal monitor stands all this time.
