[On-Going] Show & Tell: Post Your Setup / Battlestation

Thought it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to showing off your shrine, so here goes nothing

This post has been stickied. Post pictures of your battlestation here!

My actual battlestation setup is temporary and pretty messy but my rig is fairly clean. Mainly used for Simracing on an Oculus Rift and other games.
CPU: R7 1800x
RAM: 16GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB @ 3333C14
GPU: MSI 1080ti Seahawk EK X @ 385W power limit, 2025/5890, 1.000v vcore
Storage: Samsung 960 EVO 500GB, Mushkin Reactor 1TB, Samsung 850 EVO 1TB
Case: Bitfenix Shogun
Cooling: 4x NF-A14 Chromax, 3x NF-F12 Chromax, HWLabs GTS rads(140 + 360 + 280), EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 RGB, EK nickel-plexi blocks
Simrig: NextLevelRacing Wheel stand, Thrustmaster TX + TH8A, Fanatec Clubsport Pedals v3 + Handbrake.

NF-A14s are all capped at 900rpm, and because they're quieter the NF-F12s are at 1200rpm. Liquid gets like 13C above ambient at full CPU+GPU load
I love my station <3
Desktop System Specification (using it for light gaming and hosting VMs for software development)
- i7-2600k
- 32GB of RAM
- ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini 6GB RAM
- ASUS Xonar DG sound card

Laptop Specification:
- Just a regular Dell laptop, i5 CPU with 16GB of RAM, a work laptop issued by my company. You can think of this more or less as a thin client that connects to VMs hosted from my desktop remotely for software development.

- Cooler Master CMSTORM Trigger Mechanical Keyboard (blue switch)

- Mad Catz R.A.T 3 (for gaming)
- Anker Vertical Mouse (for working)

- Cerwin Vega XD3 Active Studio Monitor
- Blue Octave SW6D Powered 6.5" Subwoofer (got it on EBay for cheap, just need a little bass)

- Creative Sound Blaster Wireless Tactic 3D Rage
- Plantronics GAMECOM 818 Wireless Headset
- Plantronics Wired Headset (not sure about the model, it's 10+ years old)
- Sennheiser HD439 Wired Headphone

- Acer B286HK 28" 4K monitor (middle)
- AOC e2450Swd 24" FHD monitor (top)
- AOC E1659FWU 16" USB monitor (bottom)
Why 3 monitors?
For work, top monitor is usually for e-mail and chat, middle monitor for coding, bottom monitor for reading references or editing document.
When using it for joy, top monitor is typically playing video and middle monitor is for web surfing. Bottom monitor is not connected to my desktop. It is used for work only when I am on my laptop.

Network Gear:
- Thecus N4100EVO NAS - 9TB in RAID5
- Motorola Arris Surfboard SBG6700-AC cable modem/wireless router combo (not using the wireless router capability)
- Ubiquiti EdgeRouterX (primary needed a router to allow me to setup VLANs at home for cheap)
- Netgear GS108Tv2 8 ports smart switch
- Netgear GS108Ev3 8 ports smart switch (not using at this moment but shown on picture)
- Ancient Raspberry Pi 2 Model B using it as a wireless G router for my wireless printers

- Z-Line Belaire Glass L Desk
- Varidesk 48" Pro Plus stand desk conversion
- Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer (keep my coffee warm, extremely important! Highly recommended!)
- A bunch of Raspberry Pi(s)...
- A bunch of hot wheels just because I collect them for fun.

Thank you.
From IKEA :)
Those glass dildo speakers are a really nice touch. Makes this cheapo DELL monitor really stand out on that terrible IKEA desk. Also props for Razor fanboism.
Ohh, what desk is that??
Homemade, just butcher block and black iron pipe.
Here is my new baby
