    Looks like a Google Home Hub but I could be wrong.

    It is :)

    Used to be upstairs but handy to have in my office now so I can see who’s at the door or acknowledge the delivery drivers when they leave stuff at the door

    Cool, thanks.

    Looking for a bedside clock that I'll be able to see at night when unbespectacled but the wife won't let a Google device into the bedroom (our nest hub lives in the kitchen).

    Took my PC outside for a clean with some compressed air. Fitted a LL140 fan but realised I have no RGB ports left, and thanks to Corsair's awful design need another 6-way hub to make one extra fan work.

    You can bodge one yourself if you want. The 6 way hub just daisy chains the connectors - Corsair has an extra pin for data return, which gets passed to the normal data pin of the next plug.

    Interesting. Will look into that. The hubs are only a tenner though at least. Just frustrating.

    So some changes, as usual ;)

    The Kanto speakers have a new OcUK home, I wanted to move to an amp and passive speakers so I now have a Sabaj A3 amp/DAC and Q Acoustic 3010i setup, really good and they look stunning.

    My watercooled PC I sold to my brother. It was a good project but ultimately overkill for what I needed. I'm finding less time to game and less enjoyment so the setup is geared more to productivity now. The monitor is an LG 4K because I spend most of the day looking at code/text/web/office.

    Swapped the Razer Viper Ultimate for a Logitech G603, wanted something a little more palm and mega battery life.

    I have plans for a new chair soon too.

    Oh they are, I used both a ruler and a spirit level when aligning them to the point the centre point is the exact same distance from each side wall :p

    They are hung using wire behind though so naturally over time through vibrations on the dry wall will shift and move small amounts. I adjust them every few months.

    That makes no difference if the wall is out

    You need a full length spacer to go in between the two when resetting them :)

    I think when we move into the house I'll be going for a set up very similar to this. I'm on the fence right now about getting a 60% keyboard but as I'm working from home so much I think I'll miss the numpad, but i hate the numpad being there when gaming!

    Totally copying your speakers and amplifier set up too. Can't wait til I don't have to use headphones again!

    I wouldn't recommend a 60% keyboard, 65% is the sweet spot. Still get arrow keys, home, del, pgup/down. A numpad is good if you do a lot of work with numbers, but you can just buy a separate one if needed.

    Numpad is an issue for me anytime I'm using my mouse, it's a much more neutral position for my arms.

    Ah sorry 65% is the one I meant! It was a ducky I was looking at to replace my full size ducky.

    The same happens for me if I'm playing a FPS the amount of times I hit the keyboard really winds me up!
