Is that a custom acrylic window on your Dell PC case?  I like it.

Yep. I had the hole cut out and I hot glued a sheet of polycarbonate to the inside.

You forgot the lamp.

And the Daiso pen holders, the pair of scissors, and webcam. Plus the stickers, ThinkStation Badge, coins, and keys.

No, seriously.  What brand lamp is that?

The lamp is ancient. It ain't mine, it came with the room in this share house.

 

All I know, it probably isn't safe. Single isolated wires, and the power plug doesn't have isolation over half the prongs

Besides the price argument, its a solid GPU for a reasonable thinking person not expecting Ultra, but sure enough it plays Esports like a dream maxed out, harder Esports are using higher presets, AAA is pretty variable as many games have diff demands.

Spoiler

 AC Odyssey I used HWunboxed Optimized guide and added +20 RES Scale, Vsynced a 32-38fps range. Over 1080p and Very High for 35fps  Rage2, 90% of 1080p then Nvidia Sharpen 35% (looks great still, extra FPS than 1080p Native) SSAO on low, kept most things enabled or High/Ultra and Vsync 60fps, unlocked 65-70fps.  Metro is a 40-60fps (vsync)up to 70ish range in heavy particles vs not. I've used Medium, medium Mblur,..80% of 1080p, sharpened 35% again, kept Nvidia PhysX and Tesselation, removed Hairworks.  Control, the new game everyone loves. Dx12 has variable Vsync, DX11 30 or 60 swings. So it's DX12, 1080p Low Preset, MediumSS reflections, 45-60fps. But I'd rather use the 1366x768 High preset and have 60-90fps ranges, still variable IMO because the game needs some patching up, and micro stutter brings it down (I'm way under VRAM limits)

 

768p

 

1080p

Unfortunately I've not got many videos at all on it yet. Just my recent Control ones..

Dx12 initially had mass stutter but I've applied a known fix and it hugely improved removing stutter and gave a nice FPS boost across all metrics.

 

The Win10 WCFG Exploit Fix.

Googling should bring up Reddit and various sources talking about it, esp with Control and DX12 in general.

 

 

Depending on your "settings crux" its ample performance for 75watts of power.

I've used a 1050ti before and this is a Decent jump from there more so in new titles where Turing gets better DEV time.

New addition to the rack! It's a QNAP NAS that i got for cheap because one of the corners is kinda busted.

I replaced all the noisy fans inside with quieter ones, and now you can barely hear it if you sit about a foot away from the rack. 

IMG_20190907_102721.thumb.jpg.22fb8e1a158a744dedf732bd4847e2ce.jpg

Rack real estate is running kinda low now tho. I really do want to install another folding server sometime, but with only 5 U left and also a UPS still on the wishlist that's gonna be a tight fit.

As you can see from the pictures, I had absolutely NO IDEA what I was doing when I put together my old rig back in the day. Zero cable management, upside down PSU, plastic still on the GPU, sideways CPU cooler and a bunch of unused power cables are just some of the obvious mistakes; and don't even get me started on the dust.

 

It has been a really fun and rewarding experience building my new rig. I'm sure it has plenty of mistakes too, but it's certainly a big improvement! Cheers to great channels like LTT, Bitwit and Paul's Hardware for having so many great videos online that helped me along the way.

 

I also made the desk myself. I picked up a cheap Ash wood slab from Bunnings, sanded it, epoxied the voids and then applied a walnut lacquer and oil finisher. A mate of mine who works with metal made the legs for me.

I don't bother with any sort of cable management under the desk, as I am often swapping things in and out or taking my rig to LANs.

 

Cheers!

My first rig was like that too actually! Wanna hear about a scam "970 1 GD5" that turned out to be a 550 Ti with the smallest heatsink ever?

Sounds like a wild ride, haha. They just put up photos of 970s but then send out 550tis to people?? Did they even try to hide that it was a 550?

It was this thing. They renamed the card in its BIOS to pull off the trick:

I get all my gear from here: https://www.pccasegear.com/

There are several scam sellers on ebay. Just search "GTX 1050" or something like that and sort price by low to high.

Here's my unconventional, L-Desk setup in my bedroom. My PC and consoles are quite far from the part of the desk with the displays, speakers, mouse and keyboard, so I use long cables to connect the displays and speakers and a USB hub for the peripherals (powered, too, so it can recharge my Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse, overnight). I have the room for some more hardware, such as a secondary, streaming PC.

 

My PC has some hardware that is a bit dated, such as my GTX 1060 6GB and Ryzen 2600, but it runs most games just fine. The RGB isn't working properly; iCUE works for the fans and case lighting, but I can't get AURA to work properly and the NZXT Kraken X62 won't light up at all. Still, everything else about my PC works fine (including the pump in the AIO).

Cheers man :) Yeah I did! I wanted something simple that could come apart easily since I'm often moving around between rentals, so I figured I'd make it myself instead of buying some huge IKEA things that takes hours to assemble.

The length of the cables must be insane, what with the extra desk space and stuff.

Setup looks great man! I especially like how the TV and speakers are setup, looks grand.

Shame about the Kraken, those things look soooo cool when they're all lit up. Did you get it recently? Can you claim warranty?

I've had my Kraken for only 6-7 months. I'll see if I can claim warranty on it.
