What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Just finished up some computer upgrades and thought I’d share to see what everyone else is working/gaming on. First image is my triple monitor setup, wireless mechanical keyboard (10 keyless), wired mechanical numpad, and mx master 2s (hidden in the darkness). Next is my tower that I’ve upgraded to the below specs:

  • Fractal focus G
  • i7 7700
  • cooler master evo 212 cooler
  • 32 gb ddr4 memory (4x8gb)
  • GTX 1060 6gb
  • 256 GB nvme SSD
  • 2 x 500 GB sata ssd’s
  • 3.5" hdd hotswap bay

I also added a 3rd case fan at the back. Still waiting on my sd card reader that will take up the other 5.25" bay. At that point I’ll lose functionality of the usb 3.0 port on the top of the case (but gain 1 in the front), so I’ll probably cover the top i/o with some caps. I wish my motherboard came with another 3.0 header, but eventually I’ll probably upgrade the board to an overclockable chip which will require a new motherboard anyways. Probably for the best if I ever decide to go dual GPU since this MB only supports that for AMD video cards and not SLI.


The last pic is it setup in dual workstation mode, with my surface book extended to the lower display. The usb toggle hub is great for switching peripherals.

And unseen is the 55" 4k 60hz tv I have mirrored to the top display for gaming from the couch (where I have 2 xbox controllers wired). Mostly playing Forza Horizon 3, Madden, and FIFA on the TV, with some PUBG when I’m at my desk. Might try out rocket league soon.


What’s everyone else working with?
