Can i ask what desk is that you use?
Thank you. The desk is an IKEA Kallax 2x4 on its side, an IKEA linnmonn 2m top and then 3 of the adjustable legs. It's higher than a "normal" desk but not uncomfortably so.
Great idea doing it like that
Nice just read the entire thread, l will keep an eye on this!
Me too, great read and build log
Cheers guys, I've removed the 980Ti this afternoon as well. I may have accidentally ordered a Strix 1080Ti
Some tidy pics with more Ikea boxes
There are some bits I want to finish things off;
White board, I want a nice big white board as my memory is awful and for drawing network diagrams
New chair, the one I have is really comfy but very tatty, I think I want a new non-tatty one but don't want a "racer" look one, something comfy.
Good choice, can't beat Strix. I love my 1080
hows that ryzen in compare to your old 3770k? do you feel the difference ?
I'd love to fill this paragraph with how amazing I'm finding it however would probably be shot down with a lot of placebo effect comments.
The i7 was no slouch and general desktop browsing feels as good as it ever has done, it's a fresh Windows install so it does feel a touch nippier because of that.
Gaming, I was only playing PUBG before rip down but will put in my frames are now a lot higher, this is probably mostly due to in game settings coming down.
I did render a video the other night and it did seem a bit faster but it's hard to say for certain without having benched before and after.
I'm certainly not disappointed and the buyers remorse has completely gone. I do think it's better but have no figures to prove it.
Love this build and remember reading it when you first started it but for some reason I forgot to come back.
What I'm wondering is what type of security you got on this, would be terrible if you woke up one morning and someone had been in and cleared it out.
I know if I was to do something similar it would be broken into within the first week.
the secret is to not let anybody know that you have a lot of computer equipment in your shed :>
I have security I've removed the geolocations from my pictures I've purposefully never gone into detail about it though (as his tin foil hat goes on).
Small update, now I have the Ryzen in and working I've been toying about and doing a bit more streaming. Here is my start at a green screen and moving the Yeti from the desk mount to a boom arm to improve the audio clarity;
Love my new gaming and work space
So, not so much a huge update but a re-shuffle. Decided I want to monitor some stuff whilst gaming so have rehoused the server racks monitor for the time being whilst I pick a new monitor to go here permanently. Very happy with the "cheap" microphone arm for saying it has a yeti hanging off it.
Came here from your For Sale thread when I saw your sig, amazing. Very jealous.
I’m hoping to have some better internal updates and hopefully the external finishing touches done in the not too distant future.
Small weekend update;
I now have a new chair! Santa came early as my Mrs took pity on the state of my old one. Nice microfibre replacement with a bit stiffer padding and I've managed to get a decent sized whiteboard up now as well to help with my work drawing and thinking!!
Also now have a Polycom VVX on my desk to muck about with and I'm trying to get it to pair up with a 3CX PBX I have in colo.
So a slight change in the cave today. Tidied things up a bit but it means I'm no longer the owner of an Ikea DIY rack.
Happy with it. The cave is currently packed full of stuff from an office clearout which I'm trying to plough through but once it's clear I need something else good to go in here!
The chair upgrade seems a nice choice, somehow one of those racing seats wouldn't have looked as good in the space as the one you went for. Maybe you could add your own orange 'gaming' stripes to it like your old one had ;p
