Completed the move of my PC to the updated case....
Needs a bit more cable management to clean up the look but I had one of those days when building the thing and just wanted to get it up and running. I sleeved the front cables and put some heatshrink on the ends - overdid it a bit and deformed the connectors for the Power LED + & - connectors. I have a g-Connector that supposedly makes pluggin these in easier but ended up flattening the pins for the power switch. Needed to dismantle to carefully straighten the pins - thankfully I managed to do that and used the g-Connector to stabillise the pins when plugging the connectors in. The heatshrink makes the cables a lot stiffer so it;s harder to route the cable in the case.
I'll probably put new connectors on and do the cable sleeving / wrappin again to make things neater. That's when I can face it, this rebuild took me back to the bad old days of PCs in the mid/late nineties when building a rig was a real kick in the balls. The days before Plug and Play, automatic driver downloads with obscure hardware, loose connections, IRQs
Happy now though, it's a nicer looking case - the orange matches my theme and the case has a distinct brushed aluminium look rather than the painted black steel of my original one.
Looking good, only thing I would change is to put the tower on the table, my table is very sturdy with thick legs and a good weight rating so my tower doesn't put much strain on it. It prevents it from getting too dusty on the inside too quick (I really hate dusting my PC with compressed air, but you gotta do what you gotta do).
As for the cable management, it looks not bad at all, @Judas did my cable management, and my PC is almost 95% empty on the inside lol.
Not quite a computer place, but seeing as this is a laptop which I will move around with I guess it counts. As promised, my new laptop. Currently setting it up. It came with almost 0 bloatware, I'm impressed, MSI doesn't muck about.
And I even have space on the table on the right side of the tower for a drink.
Adjusted the mousepad a bit so it's not going against the tower, and now it sits nice and flat.

so much money spent..... and yet so under-performing for it..
Interesting looking case.
One of my good friend's PC places:
i guess... nothing cleaned up... literally as is
How big is the main one? 50"?
I have used up to 40 inchers for personal monitor.
it's a 65" Samsung Q80T 4k 120hz VRR/freesync, the portrait is a 42" LG 1080p display.
This reminds me of the first time I saw the Titanic... I was sitting front row center... my neck literally hurt form turning left and right. Not to mention that my ass vibrated from the subwoofers... that probably took care of some cellulite I had at time... gained it back later on, but hey, that's life.
nice thing is.. i don't ever need to turn my head left or right.... just to the right if i want to read what's on the LG display but by no means do i have to strain at all.
He has a large head....
i've been told otherwise.... i just have decent eyesight
My dream home, where my computer lives and runs my life. Superb!
er.... no sure if i'd say it runs my life.. considering that i potentially spend about half of my life (awake) on a farm out in the field or outside in general.
Doesn't bother you being that close to a "TV"? I mean... my mouse and keyboard are practically the same distance away from the monitor as on your pic on my 19" monitor.
No.. why would it?
