Cable management show off, and the next step.

I have done this simple cable management trick.

However, the cables at front aren't that neat.

How would you make the cables at front more tidey?

Get rid of that keyboard drawer, why torture yourself like that!

 

Push the monitor back and you would have so much more room to actually use your mouse. Your posture will thank you as well!

You could also buy a USB hub. Run it from the back of the machine, mount it to the front bottom of the desk if you won't hit your knees on it and use that for the front panel. You could also use that to "tie up" extra cables and tuck them up towards the desk.

 

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

Why is the 5800x so hot?

1. Why is there a ducky? Get rid of it

2. Why is there toilet paper on the desk? Is this a troll post? It's hard to tell XD

3. if you can, move the desk to the right and the desk will naturally cover up the cords handing to the wall outlet. Minor detail, but if you can I would.

4. Get rid of the keyboard tray, move the monitor back, and enjoy slightly milder back pain like the rest of us.

5. Wireless peripherals always help with cable management

6. Cabinet looks low enough to slide under edge of table giving you more room if you want it for anything

7. I don't see a console nearby, so the controller can be plugged in closer to the console to avoid clutter. If just used for PC gaming, then get an under desk or side of pc hanger for the controller. Preferably side of pc as that would reduce cable length needed

8. Equipment on the left doesn't look to be connected. If that's the case, go ahead and store it somewhere

9. Device in the box needs to either come out or get stored. No boxes on the desk.

10. Zip Ties. Preferably reusable velcro ones, like from LTT.

11. USB Hub plugged in the back of the computer, then any peripheral wires can be neatly routed on the desk vs hanging

12. You can also get wall outlets with power and usb on them, which you could use to eliminate some wiring on the main desk area. You could plug in anything just needing charging and not the pc connection right to the wall or get a normal outlet with 2 plugs instead of one and get a power hub for just charging too.

Simple  never use the front ports of your pc for anything that will be permanently connected. Run them under your desk to the back ports

 

The toilet paper is also not a good look regardless of your "reason" to have it there

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

Oh man I legit was not even considering how he was using the TP... My dirty mind just kicked in and now I can say the toilet paper definitely needs to be removed

Unmless you're willing to stop using the front ports, you can't. Why not run everything around the back?

Smells pretty trollish though. Maybe head back down under the bridge.

Thanks,

Adding a USB hub that connects under the table at front is a good idea.

The toilet paper... was when I was cleaning off dust and cleaning the cable I put in the wall, because for some kind of a reason the cables came out wet from the wall outlet(I mean passing the RJ45 through the wall).

The ducky is a wrist rest.

When using the mouse I lay the wrist on the duck, it does wonders and I have no issues with my wrist.

 

What's good about the keyboard drawer, is that it's quite low so I can both have my hands held straight on the keyboard/mouse, but also I can have my chair low enough so I can rest my legs on the floor better.

I am not short, but my current setup is extremely convenient for me.

The draw back is that I have less space for the keyboard.

 

So regarding cable management.

 

I could use velcro tape of the cables are too long... and also connect them from a hub in the back.

-You've got undiagnosed structural issues if you've got wet cabling.  Not to mention the problem of WATER + ELECTRONICS.

 

-If you're fighting K/M ergonomic issues.  There's about 999 better ways to have a comfortable keyboard.  I'm only 5'8", and I hate low desks.  I hate keyboard trays/drawers.  I want to move my legs around.  I don't need Deep Vein Thrombosis.

 

-Get a clamp-on monitor mount with an arm.  That will remove the monitor base--which is taking up practically 3/4ths of the desk surface; plus you can still move the monitor to a distance/angle that suits you.  Then put the K/M on the desk, and raise your chair arms until you have a seamless transition between the armrest and the desk surface.

 

-If that STILL doesn't work for you, then get an adjustable height desk.

 

-LTT velcro ties are $14 for a 20 pack?  Um....pretty sure there's cheaper options.  Or you can just get a 100 pack of regular zip ties in whatever color you want--for <$5.

I don't understand what you mean by this?

I'm saying that you don't need to have a keyboard tray to make it work. I can easily sit with my feet flat on the floor and still feel comfortable with my keyboard/mouse on the desk.  Plus, if there's a tray under the desk, i can't cross my legs or anything--which essentially locks me into the same seating position for the entire time i'm at the desk--which is not comfortable.

What should be the height of the desk without tray?

Mine's about 29.5".  Probably 28.5 with carpet and a mat.  29" is about standard.

My table is also about 28.5"

But my drawer is 23.6 inches.

28.5" is way to high. SittingPC.thumb.jpg.1a20bb7c1a575f9932b60f48bd8f904c.jpg

The point is to get the armrests up to a level where they provide a seamless support to your arms; the back of your forearm on the armrest, the front of them on the desk/keyboard palmrest.

 

It should have precisely 0 to do with your feet being on the floor.

If you desk is too tall when you remove the keyboard drawer, raise your chair and put something under your feet.

 

I personally found and old huge atlas my parents had that I have under my feet.

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. 
It matters that you don't just give up.”

I don't like putting something under my feet because it limits how much I can rotate and change positions.

If I had the same desk without a drawer, only much lower, would that be better?

Maybe I just need a desk with a wider drawer, because this one doesn't have enough space.
