Description

I want to show off my brand new PC build and desk setup. I have some crazy OCD so I like a very clean and tidy space with as good cable management as a could accomplish...

To start off on the PC, it is my second build which I consider my first as the first one shouldn't of ever come to be...This is actually the first desktop I have ever owned and very proud of it. It will be used for 1440P Gaming, Photo & Video Editing, and Audio Recording & Mixing. I wanted to go all out without going completely overboard...It took about a month of planning and deciding on parts but I am very happy with the end result.

As for the desk, I got a lot of great ideas online and decided on the 2 Alex Drawer Units, and Hallestad countertop. All from IKEA for a total of $300. The drawers are very solid unlike a lot of their other furniture and the countertop doesn't flex at all from the weight of the PC and Monitor.

I will soon be purchasing more accessories like a headphone stand, a mounting arm for the monitor, and some art to give the space more oomph. I will also be installing some shelving as this room was completely empty 2 weeks ago.

All in all an awesome battle station to suit all of my entertainment needs.

Lemme know what you all think!

I appreciate it! It's 2 Alex Drawer Units from IKEA with a Hallestad Counter Top. It's really sturdy and clean. Highly recommend for any setup.

Congrats bro! One of the cleanest builds on this site!

FlyinToasteronie 1 point 9 months ago

In the fourth pic, what is the thing on the top right of your mousepad?

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks for that motivation booster, much appreciated! It is the wireless charging dock for my Razer Mamba mouse.

FlyinToasteronie 1 point 9 months ago

Oh. I totally forgot that Wirless gaming Mice existed...

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Lol, yes. I was going to go wired but after a tonne of research and finding out wireless gaming mouse have come a long way I made the switch. Very glad I did, this thing works flawlessly!

IcedDog 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Pretty slick, I dig the purple/green combo on the rig...and the desk environment is about as clean as it gets, nicely done. +1

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Lovely setup. I dig how you manage to keep everything tidy with all those cables out from the PC.

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Thank you very much:) It took some planning and quite a few velcro straps but happy with the outcome!

Justinf1998 1 point 9 months ago

Dat cable management tho

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Took some time but worked out very well

Ryfi 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Out of interest, why the razer case if you chose a corsair keyboard, the most visible peripheral?

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

The case is temporary, it has the built in LED's which I'm going to be modding at a later date. It won't be Razer for long.

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I see that you made a Razer build, and a very nice one at that! Razer is definately a great name and the upgrades they made in their version of this case was definitely worth getting. Even though I will be modding the case and getting rid of the front Razer logo, the side PSU shroud logo will be staying because I want a little Razer in my build as well ;)

Ryfi 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

How does one get rid of that? This isn't a moral question, but rather wondering if the plan is just to stick some putty over it or something.

luciano07 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Noo, I'm going to be modding the front panel to show the 3 front fans and redirect airflow from the side and bottom to the front. The Razer logo is going to be removed.

BartoL 1 point 9 months ago
