@uninspiredcup: Before I had those FF7 pics up, it was super unbalanced. The desk had to go there because I literally have no room anywhere else. It's getting fine-tuned as that wall is being wallpapered in a couple months.

I recently transferred my hardware into a Phanteks Evolve X case. The cable management is an absolute dream, loads of storage upgradeability (more than anyone would realistically need), fantastic airflow with plenty of fan and cooling configurations, and the RGB lighting is just the cherry on top.

So here's my latest pics, and full specs;

Ryzen 2600X (4.15-4.3 GHz XFR boost)
MSI RTX 2070 Armor OC
G.Skill Ripjaws IV DDR4 16 GB @ 3000 MHz
Gigabyte Aorus X470 motherboard
256 GB SSD boot drive
2 TB HDD (other programs and personal files)
5 TB HDD (games)
EVGA 750W GQ
BenQ 35" 3440x1440 ultrawide (21:9) 100 Hz
LG 29" 2560x1080 ultrawide, 60 Hz
Cooler Master MK750 keyboard (Cherry Blue)
Razer Basilisk mouse

@AdobeArtist: I Really want that case. I got the older model without the X in model name. My desk atm is a mess. It can be better, but still there is way to much here to really clean things up. Two PCs, but only one in use, PS4, two monitors, stereo, desk light, NAS.

*Okay so synchronizing my onedrive with my phone takes ages. I'll post the pictures when they are uploaded.*

My basement renovation is near complete. The carpet installation started today!!! I can’t wait to share what this ridiculous gaming setup looks like. It won’t be “done” for a bit because my custom arcade cabinets haven’t been started yet, but there will be 2, 55” 4K HDR tv’s in one room with a Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch hooked to each, and a home theater room with a 85” 4K HDR TV, 5.1.2 surround sound Dolby Atmos setup and a Xbox One X and PS4 Pro hooked up as well. My home office is near done too. There I have 2, 27” 1440p monitors hooked to a custom build running a 2080Ti and a Ryzen 7 2700X. New CPU coming next month of course.

Pics coming real soon!

Of course you don't because you don't actually play games. You just troll the forums all day. LOL

What kind of fan configuration is this? Is that part of an external radiator??

Now that is some improvisation. ^_^
Also didn't even see at first my setup on your screen, ha.

Oh and this should be fun; I found some old pics from back in 2013, when I had a pre-built HP computer, and before I got into the cable management, lol.

I got an external radiator yes.

MO-RA 3 420. I got 4 230mm fans on it. RPM just above 500. One fan will turn on once the water temp go above 25 and don't turn off before water temp goes below 20. So basically one fan is always on.

The 3 other fans turn on when water temp reaches 30C, turns off once below 25C. If room temp is below 20C, I know that I can run both CPU and GPU at max and those 3 fans will occasionally turn off. :D

Noise level is almost at an acceptable level. To lower it any more and I either have to pay up a heavy premium or suffer on the cooling part. My options are wrapping up the water pump in some insulation to cover for the noise it makes. New PSU as the PSU fan is the loudest component atm, replace the case fans with some that I can run at 500. Got the 3 fans that came with the case running at 700rpm. Replace the radiator with a massive radiator tower and have it running with passive cooling.

My computer is fairly quiet. But still makes some noise.

@ezekiel43: I’ve got those same Sony speakers for my home theater except I went with Sony’s bookshelf speakers for my surrounds. How do you like them? Also, did you try the atmos speakers on top of the tower speakers before you mounted them on the wall? I’m curious about how big the sound quality difference was if you did.

The Sony towers are pretty nice. No, I didn't try putting the height speakers on top of the towers. The bouncing off the ceiling theory sounds unbelievable to me. I do notice the height in my Atmos and DTS:X movies, but it's usually subtle.

But sound does bounce, that's how sonars work, that's how the blind can be able to "see."

Seems like it would be more muddled and imprecise than simply hanging them from the wall. Most people on the internet say it's not as good.

Certainly not as good as real ceiling speakers, but should give some impression of them.

Edit: I want to upgrade my sound setup (current is a Samsung soundbar+sub+rear speakers) to an Atmos one, but it's highly unlikely that I start mounting ceiling speakers. Don't have the money yet, but will probably go with a soundbar setup again.
