The XL's cable management ain't any better....:bleh:

Okay, I finally got around to doing some cable management you guys were crying about.









I don't know what to do about the keyboard and mouse cables though. Those might just always be a problem.

You could bundle em together in some type of sleeve's/tube's, just so it's more slick. Or you could cut open a little drop hole that is covered with some type of cover.

Looks good MouSe-2005.

Beware the video card sag police on this forum. :bleh:

Hey thanks!


In regards to the sag, it bugs the crap out of me too! I'm trying to figure out the best way to address it...without using a Funko in my case. :lol:

JayzTwoCents proposed a solution using your chassis' PCI-E slot dummy brackets and stacking them like shims. Maybe something you might want to try:

I remember seeing that. I do have a metric ton of them from various builds so it would be easily done.

I'm tempted to punch a hole in the middle of the desk and go that route. It's a relatively cheap Ikea tabletop (Linnmon or whatever that I've had around for a few years), so no risk of ruining the desk is low at least.

Hole is cleanest way if you don't care about the desktop that much. Just be sure to put a grommet in so you don't wear the cables.

Oh good call on using a grommet. That and I need to figure out a circle bit to use that won't chew up the surface too badly.

A hole saw is the best thing to use, and then you'll be able to use a standard size grommet too. I just used a standard "big" drill bit on my desk to mount my monitor arm though, and didn't have any issues. My desk is a veneer on top of either pressboard or plywood.

Tape the area your cutting out and score the cut first to help prevent any tearing or roughness when you do the drilling/sawing.

I got a hole in my desk with a grommet, but it ain't for cables.

He could take a piece of string and tie it to the PCIe power connector and place a lego Indiana Jones dangling from it to hold the card straight.. :lol:

This weekend I will install this humble hardware in my humble current rig to create a new humble computer (with all the parts already replaced last year). I will post humble pictures of this humble moment after I complete the installation.




Core i9 12900K
ROG Maximus Formula Z690
64GB DDR5-5200
ROG AIO compatible with socket 1700

I forgot to upload these, this is my daughter's new laptop for "school" :bleh:







I'm surprised about it's performance. It's almost as fast as my old Ci9 9900K+Radeon VII

Moved into my new house. The 2nd bedroom is my PC/Movie room.

Avari height adjustable desk.
48" LG C1 on desk as a gaming monitor
65" LG C9 for shows and movies
Steelcase Gesture full leather chair with headrest
Full Klipsch Reference Premier Speakers with Martin Logan Subs
- Denon AVR-X3500H receiver
- 2x RP-8000F front
- 2X RP-6000F rear
- 2X RP-500SA Atmos
- 1X RP-504C center
- 2X Dynamo 800X subs

Current System Specs:
- Intel Core i9 12900K
- Gigabyte Aorus Z690 Master
- 32GB G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5
- MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio
- 1TB Sabrent Rocket 4.0 NVMe SSD
- Two 8TB Sabrent Rocket Q NVMe SSDs in 16TB RAID-0
- Corsair Crystal 465X case
- NZXT Kraken X73 cooler
- Corsair ML & QL fans
- Corsair AX1600i power supply
- EVGA NU Audio sound card
- Razer Blackwidow V3 Pro keyboard
- Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse
- Beyerdynamic 1770 Pro headphones







I had the PC on a table. Decided against it. The C1 was reflecting in the side panel. Very distracting. I'm also used to having it near the floor. It's sitting on two pieces of black granite from my old house.

The cables from the computer are bundled together with some slack. That allows me to raise and lower the desk as needed.

Still need to hang the 5 pieces of sound absorption panels sitting next to the closet. Not sure where the best spots for them are quite yet.

lmchv Feb 19, 2022 12:17 AM

Nice!, I would love to have a dedicated space for my equipment (computers, TVs, sound), maybe when my kids leave the nest...:lol:

I completed the upgrade, I reused everything but the mainboard, processor, memory and AIO.

The main actors:




Initial testing:




Final result:




Since I have the computer on my left, I have inverted the case, works fine.

It posted on the first try, however, when I enabled XMP it just started failing. Had to update to the latest bios and now it's working fine. Another thing to notice is that a lot of components were not recognized by Windows, had to use the utility that came with the MB.

I will format it this weekend for a clean start!

CurrentlyPissed Feb 19, 2022 08:47 PM

New build day: Theme White / Black

NZXT H510 Flow

Corsair RM850 PSU


lmchv Feb 19, 2022 10:33 PM

I have so many cables coming out of the AIO I can't find a way of concealing them :lol:

I will change the orientation of the video card power cables, but thats it, dont know how to improve the cable management. This case is huge, and the cables are not long enough :bleh:

Megaman Feb 19, 2022 10:53 PM

You could try wrap them around the board or screws etc..




logical Feb 19, 2022 10:58 PM

Yeah great parts but it looks messy as hell

lmchv Feb 19, 2022 11:07 PM

Will try to do that, have a lot of velcro :lol:

AdamK47 Feb 23, 2022 10:38 PM

Attached a keyboard tray to the bottom of the desk to give a little more distance from the C1. My eyeballs are 3' 8" From the screen while I'm seated.
