Like a lot of people, I donít have a traditional computer tower these days but the desk I just bought (as it was the most suitable one for the space) has a section dedicated for one. Iím struggling to think of what to put in there. Any good ideas?

I used to have the same kind of desk and when I first got it, my H510 would only fit if I squeezed the top in under the grate first then slid the bottom on the shelf. Then I switched to a Lian Li o11 and I had to drill new holes and move the top shelf up.

Speaking of, since my desk went from being in my basement home gym to being part of my living room I got tired of the "gamer" aesthetics so i got a cleaner-looking case (Fractal North), then junked the Amazon desk and went for the tried and true "countertop on cabinets" desk, exchanged my wired headphones for the horrifically overpriced, absolutely not worth it, please don't do this SteelSeries Arctis Pro, finally coughed up the cash for a proper low profile mic arm, got some brackets to hide the work laptop under the desk and finally did some semi-proper cable management (please don't look under the desk) and now I have something cleaner that doesn't bother me as much:



I'm still looking for a cleaner solution for the wireless charger (I would LOVE something under/through the desk but as far as I know those don't work with watches) and I might move the audio interface out of the way once I find settings that I like and I stop constantly fiddling with the knobs.

Is that pegboard the one from IKEA? Iíve seen that and been interested in it previously but wasnít sure how well itíd look.

Nah, it's from a hardware store; I had a ton of leftover pegs/hooks/trays from another one I had in my shed so I wanted to make sure I could use them. I have a friend who has the Ikea one and it honestly looks pretty much the same and he has the same kind of stuff hanging on it (controller, headphones, keyboard) without a hitch.

My monitors are arranged the same way except they're kissing. Why aren't your monitors kissing each other?

The portrait monitor is ace.

Real answer: They used to when they were wall-mounted but the desk mount that I have now can't really do that, or rather I'd need 6 inches of space behind the desk to bend the arms enough. It's also a bit jarring to go from 4k to 1080p and the gap helps a bit.

I kinda want to get a 27" (maybe 1440?) monitor to replace the portrait and make it a bit more useful but I feel like I'm over wasting my money, plus my mic arm barely fits under the 24" already and I'd have to move a ton of poo poo around to make my setup work if the arm can't fit under the portrait monitor.

If you want an adventure to go on, search for a local blacksmith or 'fabrication metalworker' lol.

They could probably cut your arm in half and butt weld in an extra 6 inches. Surprisingly, there's no typo in that last sentence. If they're good and understand the assignment it should take barely any time.

Especially if you supply the 6 inches. That's what she said.

Even if this "mod job" sounds ridiculous to you, which it is in a way, I'd recommend being friends with a metalworker anyway, they are terrifically useful.

Cheaper and easier option is to give up on the dual arm and get a single arm for the second monitor

I bet the thread creation date coincides in some way with Bioshock. It made a lot of people contemplate new builds. I was one of em. May of 2007 according to Newegg.

Vista Ultimate,p5b, 2gb ocz 800, 2X 500GB HDD, and a Intel e6600 with an Uhhh... 8800gt? Is that the right era?

Edit: nope. Not really!

There absolutely no question that arms are better, you can get the monitor exactly where you want it and can also put a shelf under if you wanted.

That was one of the first things hung up in here because my cousin loaned it to me when we moved here and I just needed it not in the reach of a small child.

The rest of the room has grown around it like some kind of RGB-powered synth station, and, while it does look kind of hilariously out of place now I think it contributes to my TGI Friday's Redneck Catboy vibe that I am rocking in here.
