Thought I'd post an update because I've re-arranged a little bit.  The desk itself hasn't changed much except I've added an external speaker to the CB radio.  I moved my working area into a corner though, added a 2nd DC power supply for testing CB radios without messing with the one I actively use, and brought in another cabinet to store things rather than just pile them in drawers and tubs.

 

The cabinet on the left just got put here today.  I have some spare CB radios that I've fixed on the top shelf, some misc. stuff in the large area, with my ammo can and gun cleaning kit in the back.  There's a small little shelf next to it with various items that I am currently working on, and the bucket under my desk is just a bucket o' parts from old torn up radios.

Here's my actual work area.  I spend most of my time talking on the radio or surfing the internet on the computer, and I leave the police scanner running to keep tabs on local events.  The little square box over my CB radio is a SWR meter for measuring antenna condition when installing radios for people.  I've got an external speaker hooked up to my CB to the left of the rack it's sitting on because the built-in speaker is facing downward into the table, and the larger external one can be propped up to face me.

Loved it the minute I saw it. How many 3.5 can you have inside this thing? Are you happy with your case buddy?

Just got a new case, sloooowly upgrading my old pc... first step case :)

attachicon.gifNew Case 2.jpg

 

Case - Corsair Carbide Air 540

MB - Asus P5Q Pro

CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4 ghz

Memory - 8 GB

OS windows 8.1 Pro

Graphics - MSI 7790 - Main card / MSI 7770 Slave card.

 

Totally loving the cable management, behind the motherboard its a rats nest, but upfront its nice and clean.

The fans on the case are a bit noisy, but I plan to put in a fan controller at some point.

Yes I am very happy with the case.  There is a small plastic cage for 5, I think 2.5 ssd's, there is two caddy's at the bottom of the case for 2 3.5 HD you may be able to get 3 in the metal cage behind the motherboard which would normally hold the cd/dvd drive.

Nice, but what do you use 5 screens for? I have three, but can't see using more than that?

On the old photo, the monitor on the left, is that the same as the one on the right? Also what monitors are these, a link would be nice. Are they 24inch? I'm in the market for some new monitors.

Only 2 3.5 HD? It would have been much better if I could have 5 3.5 instead of 2.5.. I guess I'll stay with my current one for a little more. (HAF932)

Yeah they're the same monitors (LG 23EA63V-P), they're supposedly 23" according to the LG website however the box says 24". I believe they retail for a little over £100 each. I got them cheaper through work as we bulk ordered 300 of them as part of our XP migration/infrastructure upgrade last year and had a surplus of them. Absolutely stunning colour and clarity for the price.
