Thank you all again for participating.

Monday August 2nd the Questor will be @TaleSpinner!

Hope you enjoyed this round.

 

 

 

 

I wouldn't exactly call it pimped, or anything like that...  Doesn't that require purple shag carpet or whatnot? ::P:

^Current setup (it's nice to have an airbrush booth)

CPU Cooler: Cryorig R1 Ultimate, with special edition orange CustomMod covers (these were won in a giveaway on OCN.  I was one of two people to win some a few months before they hit retail)

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Ultra

Video card: Asus RTX 2080 Strix

Storage drives: Western Digital SN750 500GB m.2 NVME (main drive), Samsung 860 EVO SATA 1TB (gaming drive), Seagate ST2000DM006 2TB mechanical drive (mass storage).  Will eventually be adding in a 2TB m.2 NVME (for gaming storage) as well as another 500GB m.2 NVME (for photo and/or video editing scratch drive usage)...  And upgrading the mechanical drive to 2x 6TB Seagate Iron Wolf drives

Audio Interface: Audio-GD NFB-11 Class A headphone amp

Second audio interface: Rode AI-1 (with a Rode NT1 on a Rode PSA1 connected to this)

Xbox 360 controller

Switch Pro Controller (not pictured)

Keyboard: Razer Huntsman Elite

Mouse: Razer Naga Trinity w/ two button insert

Case: NZXT Phantom 820 (Black) with side panels and half the internals removed (I was originally going to watercool it)

 

Desk guardians:

- Treat the Dragon, in 2017 Halloween special edition colours

- Funko Pop Eevee.  My one and only Funko Pop, and as you can tell, it's NOT IN THE BOX. :devil:

 

 

Mousemat was picked up on AliExpress, and has Teemo on it.  While I like the character, I hate the game.  Eventually I'll get a replacement one, it's just trying to figure out what I want the design to be first.

 

 

Oh, curious what the rig looks like?

Not a perfect shot, but it isn't exactly easy to get a look at it due to it being partially tucked in behind my monitors ::P::ph34r:

How handy are you in and around the house?

very, but I rent an apartment, so for the most part if I fix stuff I would get in trouble

no, no. I used to but windows keeps removing it every single time it updates, so I gave up.

I don't pimp the laptop or the mouse pad, but I have a picture I got off the interwebs of a Prometheus Class ship from Star Trek as a background.

Well, here’s the top of my laptop, if that tells you anything:

I also buy cases for all my portable devices, because I’m a dern klutz, and I like them to be a pretty as possible. My phone has a purple case and my tablet has a nebula case.

 

My computer is set to change my background periodically, from a folder of nasa pictures. My other devices have pictures that express my various interests that I change randomly.

Don't really decorate computer or phone, and switch backgrounds regularly. Here is my current one.

Not really. Back in the day when I built my own desktops I may have pimped one to an extent simply because the air fans/casing had blue lighting (I took air cooling seriously since the previous desktop died from overheating after five years). I played a lot of games back then, so I wanted it to look cool. I should have airbrushed a design on the case of the one that died: Little Steve Austin, the Six Hundred Dollar Machine (yes, inspired by The Six Million Dollar Man, because when frayed wires on the power source blew several components, that was the cost to rebuild him... better... stronger... faster...).

 

Since transitioning to using laptops (for portability, reduced gaming, and reduced disposable income) I don't really do anything. The most I do is give it a name and throw up a background to reflect that name. First laptop was JARVIS, my current one is called GIDEON. I don't think I've used a mousepad in well over a decade.

I don't put stickers and stuff on them. My tablet got a black case. My current mouse-mat is by FISKARS.

I know Zazzle does personalized mouse pads. Never done one.  I don't even know what a laptop sleeve is.

Screensaver just takes it to black. Background, I may have posted before:

That is from the phone ^ screen's background.

 

This is a sample of the surface of Europa, thank you NASA. It has served as a background:

Here is my mousepad.  It is made from a picture I took in Hawaii.
