Love nature, but love tech too? Yep that's me. That's why when the time came to build my gaming/work setup, I tried to make the best of both.
Because of dad's recent passing, I had decided to move back to my parent's place to give my mom all the support I can. My dad also loved seeing me build stuff, so this build is also a tribute to him. I had never built anything home-related before, so all these is pretty much a first for me. Thankfully there's Google, and I loved how it turned out. This is for you, Dad!
I already had lots of tech stuff to move back home, so the plan is just to build this gaming/work cave as cheaply as I can. I try to save and reuse things where possible ( the ceiling and wall panels are all recycled from my old cupboard), but I don't scrimp when it comes to the stuff that I feel matter. I outline the plan for each section here. details can be found when you click on the tags.
I was planning to start with a minimalist theme, but I realised that wouldn't be practical with the amount of work I needed to do, the surround sound system I am setting up, and the sound absorption and diffusion I would need. Hence the decision to make a nature/cozy theme. I love nature, and keep a few pets I needed tanks for. So I ended up with the idea of mounting the PC to an alcove in my room, placing a few tanks around, and filling the rest with fake plants.
The end goal is to create a system that would play music on stereo well, and provide complete 5.1 surround immersion for games/movies. With some extra foliage, I managed to hide the rear surround speakers in the Kallax shelves for extra cleaniness points! The design of the room is to minimise flat surfaces as much as possible to break up standing waves while keeping a clean look.
My daily workhorse provides enough computing power for my daily work as a web developer, while still being able to run most modern games at 80-100fps on ultra. I wished I had gone for a custom loop at the start, but it's my first build and I wasn't confident.
A standing desk is something I always wanted. With the long hours I work, sitting too much is just bad for my back. A standing desk is a godsend when it comes to preventing back pain. I bought the frame and got the tabletop custom-made in 200cm x 80cm to fit my needs.
Hello everyone, I'm Sam from the Netherlands, and here is my PC and setup used for gaming and school work. Around a year ago I built my PC and know I'm ready to show it to the audience. I hope you like it. If you have any suggestions or questions, let me know and I will try to answer them as quickly as possible.
* I could not add all the photo's that I have so not everything is shown. If you want to see more of my setup (including all PC specs), you have to follow this link to PCPartPicker where you can see my setup in more detail: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/zVjypg
band1tI really like the setup but I agree with @Harjeet if you got a monitor triple mount, some paintings, personalize it for instance, if you're going to use a hint of yellow in your wallpaper you should have a yellow small thing or a yellow car somewhere, I also suggest mounting those speakers if possible. It's a cozy setup, and I love the BMW branding
Finally, my project of #Cyberjunkproject it finished in this April 2020. This pandemic, im already work from home so i have more time to build this setup with low budget cost. Already start this project, February 2020, and finished this April 2020. Im used some stryrofoams, paper glue, stick bamboo and buy some led RGB strips. It only cost Rp.50.000 ($3.16 USD) for all styrofoams Glue Rp.20.000 ($1,27 USD). I made setup concept for this one using PowerPoint before, so for cut and put styrofoams on the wall was easy. You can see my work here https://scooget.com/ysgeneration/cyberjunk-reratic-setup-in-progress.
For peripherals and gears, im using all peripherals from Logitech, and also my Mousepad was custom with Logitech G in that. Monitor im using from Samsung, the cheapest curved monitor on market. Actually i have 27 inch 165hz monitor from Aorus, but not fit with my setup. For PC components, im using brands for Thermaltake and Asus Republic of Gamer (ROG). Build my mini itx PC with Thermaltake Core P1 Chassis, ROG Strix X470-i, AMD Ryzen 2700X, ROG Strix RTX 2060 OC, G.SKILL 16GB 3600Mhz, PSU Thermaltake ToughPower DPS G RGB 750W.
Maybe workfromhome have benefit to me to build my dream cave like my setup before (I have other setup like this before, different design, but already dismantled because i moved).
