We may have a thread somewhere else, but ejhartman's post in the TV setup thread made me want to start a different one.

Everyone post pics of your desk arrangements and PC specs. I think quite a few of us on here have custom built desktops.

Yeah, it was brand new during that picture. I also have an air compressor so I blow it out whenever I am in there - at least twice a year when swapping out drives or other parts.

That's different!
A) it is in my garage not bothering me
B) I can use the box when I move

That cable management is the worst I have ever seen. Get some zip ties at the very least.
