Nice setup. That bare internal drive doesn't bother you?
Yeah, it does. I am going to buy an enclosure for it soon. It has a SATA connection on the back for USB 3.0 for now.
Yea I never question the build quality of humanscale, but man is their stuff heavy. I'm only using the the upper half of the mount because its technically at 6 monitor mount. I have a glass top desk and was afraid that if i tried to put the base on it it would shatter the desk. I like the ability it gives me to fine tune where the monitors are but its like a 40-50 pound mount lol.
Very nice. I feel like 48" is massive to sit in front of like that, or am I wrong?

I made a video putting together my new setup. It's a 2018 Mac mini + Sony 43" X720E + Ergotron LX HD Arm. It's a huge upgrade for me compared to what I had before.
sort of a work in progress, maybe post a bigger picture later. I'm not doing cable clean up until I finish installing the other 6 RGB 120ms that are going in. In case youre wondering the fans are setup to be completely dark unless theres sound, I have them set to responsive red to go along with Doom, its not hard set or anything. I did a custom scheme to making them look like spinning pokeballs the other day for my nephew. Brightness can be adjusted. With thermaltake software you can setup 5 or so profiles with 30 something modes.
razor hyperflux(dont ask I was drunk, it does work great though.)

lian-li PC-11 Dynamic(black)
cheap RGB led strip, Thermaltake 3x120mm RIIING plus RGBS
1. I think im ditching thermal for corsair, the thermaltake software is actually great but the cable and power management is really obnoxious. im gonna play around with ll120s this week. I couldnt find a lot of info on what Corsairs profiles for ciue are. I hope its as good Thermaltakes. Asus Aura sync is meh. I cant do sound reaction and mod my colors in their current software, but I do like their sound reaction modes.
2. Im think about going 4k, big monitor. I dont think they make an ulrtawide 4k+ resolution retail monitor yet. I was thinking about the Wasabi Mango 43" but that means pulling my desk back mounting it and maybe building out the desk to the wall. is anyone doing 4k big monitor desk(not couch)? learning experiences? Surround? surround rtx?
I went all Corsair...
You will need an RGB fan controller, along with the Command Node Pro to tie it all into the MB. Lights and fans. Cable management is NOT that great with this. Plus needing two nodes fuckin sucks.
Once it's all tied together with iCue and working, its VERY nice.
You don't technically need the commander pro to make the LL120s work. It basically comes down to how you want to control your fans and if you want the addition of temp readouts using the thermal probes.
The lighting pro included in the LL120 3 pack will control up to 12 LL fans. Each channel of the lighting pro would connect to the smaller controller on the right. The fan speeds would need to be controlled by the motherboard or some other speed controller.
If you want your fan speed control to be handled within the iCue software, then that's where the commander pro comes into play. Each of the six channels could be split into two and you could control all 12 of the fans I just talked about. I think you can add more fans than 2 to the channel, but be sure you aren't overloading that channel. Typical amperage calculations need to happen.
Just did a build for a buddy that had 7 LL120s in it. I used a commander pro to control 4 of the fans, the other 3 hooked into the Celsius 360 fan controller(wanted those fans to spin up based on loop temp). I could have done it without the commander pro by attaching the 4 fans to the motherboard and used it's fan software. In hindsight the commander pro was a nice way to get everything into one piece of monitoring/control software. My buddy doesn't like messing with a lot of different pieces of software, so it was pretty important to give him a one stop shop for all that "stuff"
Not trying to prove anyone wrong here, it's just when I tried to do my research on how all the Corsair stuff worked, I had a hard time finding anything that was useful. If anyone had specific questions let me know and I will do my best to help out.
thanks the information online about rgb especially for those of us that want more than default rainbox raver shit is pretty slim. im thinking about being a hero and starting a review information channel comparing everything out.
I can tell you for my primary build the main thing I want is a sound reactive profile for all my fans and LED that also lets me customise the colors. So far thermaltake seems like the only one that can do all that but you need a seperate molex powered hub for every 5 fans which is obnoxious af.
Yep...this was all I cared about really. Controlling everything via the iCue software. The fan module that came with the fans only had manual inputs (little dongle) to make fan changes.
My current setup in my bedroom,
I am surprised that that old Dell laptop does 3440x1440
EDIT, a new picture as I changed the speakers to Dali Zensor 1
how is that led light on top of your monitor, is it any good?
It's actually really good. The only complaint is the auto brightness doesn't work well at all. But it is very bright, and well built.
Here is my setup! I had a Corsair RGB Void Pro Wireless but.... the audio sounds like doodoo so I went with Arctis 7 instead. Everything RGB is pretty much Corsair . I'm gonna add another 2080ti later and I feel like my life will be complete XD
what kind of mic stand is that? Do you have a link?
Wires are still a mess, but I'm not sure I'll ever get the finished look.
Have had it going on two years, Asus 34" WS @ 3440x1440. Newer monitors have come out, but nothing to make me upgrade just yet.
Here is a rig I have in my kitchen. Just got a new 28" 4K monitor for it. Not that I need a 4K rig in my kitchen, but what the hell.
Love seeing this stuff. my setup simple but functional. Like that 3 monitor racing setup. man /drool
View Distance Adjustment
Why do you have the keyboard so close when you could have it back where you are playing from in the video (or somewhere in between the two) on another surface or a mount?
Does that whole middle desk area have the ability to roll backward independent of the monitors? That would seem like a good way to modify your viewing distance modularly on the fly depending on what type of game you are playing (surround racer immersed up close, a middle distance for other games or if you are doing desktop/apps).
... I also have to ask - why is the guy in the video playing with a gamepad when you have a good wheel setup right there? >.<
"running FH4 on a single 1080"
Forza is windows store game so between that and dev itself I think no SLI capability on that game so there is no option but single card for that afaik. (The Dirt series works with SLI, even the just released dirt rally 2.0 works with a simple workaround).
120Hz+ , VRR (variable refresh rate)
Very cool setup though I like it. I'm hoping to do something similar with 43" displays but for now my middle one is the only one I game on. It's a 32" LG 32gk850G for 120hz to 165hz with g-sync at 1440p for higher frame rates, with the two side 43" ones being $230 - $270, 60hz 4k VA tvs. I'm hoping to eventually get a monitor based on the upcoming 43" AUO panels in 2019- 2020 that do high hz and should have VRR. They are going to make 43" 4k 120hz+ HDR 600 and HDR 1000 (possibly FALD on the hdr1000, not confirmed). I'm not willing to do sub 120Hz gaming or play or sub 100Fps-Hz gaming rates where I can help it, nor lose VRR so I'll mostly just be playing on the middle screen using the 43" on each side for desktop/apps... and streaming, file mgmt, playlists, chat, media playback , progress meters, etc. Even though it's not exactly my usage scenario, it's really cool to see a similar setup to what I am aiming for in actual operation. Thanks for posting.
Keyboard gets moved out of the way when not in use.. like when I'm kicking back in the chair and using the gamepad. The desk is just a fold out 55" table. I can remove it completely and sit in my chair with no table at all but I use it for a bedroom computer use mostly. The monitors are on a standalone mount (links in previous post) and not attached to the desk.
cause Forza Horizon 4 wheel FFB is awful. Tried tweaking and using other people settings but the consensus is FH4 is optimized for a gamepad. Believe me I've tried. It works fine for other games like Asseto Corsa, Dirt, etc. Even if it did work correctly.. farming perks on a wheel is tiring. heh
That I know but kept on getting the questions of the hardware used to push 12kx2k and kept getting the question on video and if I had sli.. this was to preempt questions if I was running SLI. Forza runs really good on Ultra now that I've upgraded to a 2080TI since the original post.
Thanks! Eventually I will go that route (high refresh / large screens) just waiting for hardware to catch up. I do have a 165hz g-sync screen but at this point I prefer the immersion of large ass screens esp for racing games.
This still needs a little tidying up but here it is. I'll update pics in the future.
It used to be this single 43" 4k TCL S405 without monitor arm, 27" PG278Q, and a 2012 1440p apple cinema display on ergotron mx arm. I'm including to show my chair and more of the pc, and in order to compare to the larger desk setup now.
.....Current setup ...
TCL S405 43" 4k 60hz ~4200:1
LG 32GK850G 32" 1440p g-sync 120hz /165hz ~ 3000:1
Samsung NU6900 43" 4k 60hz ~6100:1
- A more complete hardware list pasted at bottom of post
- The array is much larger than it might appear to be in the pictures.
It's difficult to get camera perspectives that encompass the whole setup without making things look uneven and gaped in relation to each other but I really like how this picture turned out since it shows how much area there actually is.
The black overlapping desk surface is on wheels but it is butted up against the main desk as far as it can go. It's straight on to the middle monitor in person, pictures make it look spun a bit but I could actually rotate it or even move it back some if I wanted to. The distance from the center of each monitor surface to my eyeballs is 3'.
I'm hoping to get one of the upcoming AUO 43" 4k 144hz hdr600 or hdr1000(FALD?) monitors to replace the middle 32" monitor someday, when I'll likely move the overlapping desk back a bit farther away to adjust for the added array width.
Thanks for checking out my setup .
Hardware List (most of it)
That's a lot of pixels
No longer a gamer. Here is my new work setup.
Very clean. How do you like that monitor?
I recently ditched my 40” 4K 60hz for a 120hz ultra wide 1440p Alienware... i miss the real estate a little but 120hz with G-sync is so buttery smooth. Kind of a shitty dark pic.. heh.. I'll take some better pics. The monitor is gorgeous, very sleek design.
I've been thinking of doing the same with my 40" Samsung. That Dell 38" is the leading contender, but I'm waiting for more info on the forthcoming Asus and Acer 43" monitors with 144hz before puling the trigger.
Yeah I should have waited but I am likely going to sell this one when those larger 144hz+ displays are available and scoop one of those.
I love it so far. Got it setup using USB-C. Got my audio, usb HUB and of course video going throught it with only 1 cable. I had a Dell u3415W for the last 4 years and liking the new higher resolution.
I have done a similar setup more recently. I have 2 coffee lake nucs hooked up to my audio amp, usb kvm, and 35" 120hz ultrawide. I love the speed of these little machines with low power usage and heat. I keep one nuc on linux and the other windows. I should have gone all out for the 38" higher resolution ultra wide but 35" 3440x1440 is working decently.
My first attempt at wall mounting anything, and yes came management will come
I also recently got the 3818dw. It's a really good monitor and running everything including sound with one USB C connection to the Surface Book 2 is quite nice (includes power back to the SB2). Nice setup, Klipsch and all
I see the Tardis hidden in plane site.
Dell AW3418DW main monitor with the Dell S2716DG as the secondary monitor. Second pic is of the old setup.
Some changes. Bigger front speakers with atmos speakers on top. More compact stand to bring the speakers inward and lower the TV to make it eye level for gaming. Moved existing front speakers to the rear. Added ambient lighting to the rear of the display. Oh, and a new Logitech 950 remote to control everything.
