Is it sad I'm more concerned where you are talking into that microphone :D
I do need to double check whether I’m supposed to talk into the top or the side, it definitely seems happier with the shock absorber when it’s upright, and audio is picked up either way. It is more vertical now than in that original photo sir!

Looks like its an AT2020USB? Or something similar, if so you talk into the front not top :D

My PCS build is in pre-prod so I think it is time to start documenting my journey from this...

...to something hopefully a little more organised and presentable!

This is mostly the PCS system I ordered 8 and a half years ago (‘Overkill’ in my sig), with the GTX 690 upgraded to a 1080 and a replacement for one of the original 3 iiyama monitors when it died. And yes, those are cheap plastic storage containers holding up the two monitors! The monitors had no height adjustment so I got the containers as a stop gap measure but never got round to a better solution.

First up will be some cable management which I hope to get done this weekend. I have some cable trays to attach under the desk and a couple of desk cable grommet covers with a hole saw on the way so I can concentrate cables at certain points on the desk and thread through to reduce mess. I won’t be doing too much to directly tidy this lot as I’ll only need to unplug it in a couple of weeks, but making a start now will be good!

Next will be replacing the curtains with some blinds. The room gets a full dose of sunlight in the afternoon, so being able to adjust the blinds will be easier than having to partially draw the curtains. Flooring was replaced earlier this year so is good there. Finally, one day, I may get a new desk that is either dark in colour, or more of a match for the desk I have off to the side, and at some point I will get round to sorting out the terracotta coloured walls I inherited when I moved in.

Firstly I was going to say I recognise those storage baskets that you are using as height adjusters, although the ones I own hold clothes pegs ;)

Secondly whilst I understand that you had to replace one of your monitors, it's such a shame that you couldn't have got another Iiyama. Iiyama doesn't get enough love on here, I understand that yes there may be better priced/specified options these days, but I've always had a special place in my computing heart for their monitors :)

As for the cabling, what's wrong with it, looks perfectly fine to me :D
