Just a rad top down view of my desk. The wooden Star Wars builds look awesome.

A step back from my set up. It's come a long way to get to this point. Not a big fan of where my PC is standing but it works. I have been thinking of painting the pillars for my PC in white. Also, I use a TV as a secondary screen either to watch movies/YouTube or use it to monitor my hardware during games.
AT-AT on top of things!
Showing off the custom sleeved cables provided by a local guy in Johannesburg, South Africa. Sauced the parts from him and did the sleeving myself.
Just a sweet side view of my desk and the massive BX8 studio monitors by M-Audio and LG 34". Sounds rad.
Cable management - Using double sided tape doesn't always work well with certain materials. you can see that the power plug stuck to the bottom of the desk isn't sitting quite right and is sagging slightly. Other than that the cables from my audio interface are routed nicely.
Again a cool shot of the awesome custom sleeved PCI-E Cable.
You might also notice where the modular hard drive bays would traditionally be installed, that section is covered by an acrylic sheet painted in matte black to clean up the look.
Gaming and Music Room
This build has come a very long way starting out with an old Intel motherboard when they used to make them back in the day and it was accompanied the Intel 2600K. Pushing the pixels i was running a ASUS HD 6970 - Still one of the beafiest coolers on a card to ever live! Over time I've slowly upgraded and made things look as clean as possible in all corners of the PC itself and of course upgraded the tech which is housed by the beautiful Phanteks Enthoo Pro M - such a great case and can't recommend Phanteks enough. Prior to the hardware i have now, I was rocking and FTW Z87 EVGA mobo with the Intel 4790K of course and boy was that fun. I think i've down graded slightly from that going to the Ryzen 2600 but it's new gen so i'm totally stoked. Now, i have the Gigabyte Windforce 1080, I had an AMD R9 380 from MSI which was great at the time i bought it but the more i gamed, the more i wanted more frames. I was using an old ASUS 144Hz monitor too at the time but got rid of it for the LG 34UC79G After buying my GTX 1080. never been more satisfied but having a 1080Ti would've been awesome. As a whole i'm so stoked where my setup is at right now and the only thing that i would like to change maybe in the future is to have a higher resolution monitor, at least a RTX 2080 and possibly a newer gen Ryzen CPU (which might come first as the chipsets are soon to launch) As you might've noticed, there are a few guitars in my room as you can see. Myself and my father are luthiers.. If you are clueless as to what that is, that's okay lol.. we are guitar builders. Striving for perfection we make beautiful acoustic guitars and I'm a singer songwriter that just loves gaming a bit too much.
Thanks for reading this quick history of my PC building, I tried to keep it brief but intimate.
