Finally got around to cleaning the desk since I start an MBA on Monday.

desk.jpg


Old 1940's bankers' desk that I purchased years ago at a Goodwill for about $80. I have another one for the wife that we also got at Goodwill for about $40!. I have 5 monitors hooked up ranging from a 17" (hanging) to a 24" Dell, 2 27" Dells, and a 23" Apple Cinema display. Behind the desk is the Dell Poweredge T430 with dual Xeon E5-2630 8 core, 16 threads each. 32gb ram, AMD Radeon RX 5600XT 6gb, Nvidia Quadro K1200 4gb, 2tb main drive, 18tb raid setup for Plex to run off of. Hopefully, soon the 17" monitor will go away and I will be replacing it with a 42" LCD 1080p TV I have not being used.

The laptop is an old Dell M6600 (2013) that still has life in it if I can get the ATI video card that I want for it to support more than 2 monitors. The white box is a Sophos SB310 running Ubuntu that I want to make into a firewall for the house, just need a good firewall program to install in Ubuntu.

Yes, that is the Return to Castle Wolfenstein game in the bottom drawer.

So it looks cool but is not fast? :D

Yup, it's an old core 2 duo e6500 that I found lying around, for now I put win 7 on it but was thinking about trying linux on it but did not see an obvious way to boot from USB on this antiquity.

This was my first ever full custom build. I painted the case. This is my first custom loop. The tubing is truly copper. It took me about 3 weeks total time to finish. While waiting on parts I just used my x62 from last build. I will build a gallery of the build when I get up. Just got off from work.

Hurray! Another copper hardline build, and it looks like you did a nice job sweating the 90degree adapters.
Do you have a link to those fittings?
Also how tight do they hold the lines?

Got a new Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL case which I have been wanting to try, and decided to go back to air cooling with my ATC 800 cooler. Still need to do some tidying up on some cables, but pretty happy how it turned out.
