This project ini­tially started with me build­ing my rig out of my mum’s garage when I de­cided to buy a starter Ther­mal­take wa­ter cool­ing but ended up ex­pand­ing to a gam­ing room when I moved out and man­aged to pick up the six screens for $450. I’ve man­aged to build my own lit­tle gam­ing den now which is pretty cool!

MOST IM­PRES­SIVE EL­E­MENTS:

1. Cross­fire RX480’s 2. Cus­tom EK / TT wa­ter cool­ing loop 3. Hand crafted “Rag­narok” PSU plate 4. The six screens!

WHAT MAKES MY PC SO SPE­CIAL?

I started build­ing this PC af­ter I was made re­dun­dant at my pre­vi­ous job. It re­ally helped me get through a tough time so the ex­pe­ri­ence I had putting her to­gether and cus­tom mak­ing com­po­nents re­ally helped me get back on my feet.

MY DREAM UP­GRADE:

I think my dream up­grade would be a set of three ul­tra­w­ide curved mon­i­tors to mimic the six screen setup I have now with­out the bezels.

1. We’re not en­tirely sure you have enough screens there, dude. 2. We’re see­ing a lot of Log­itech on that desk. Speakers, key­board, wheel. 3. Ther­mal­take mouse on a Razer mousepad? Where’s your brand loy­alty? 4. Gam­ing chairs are the the most ubiq­ui­tous new bit of kit. There are 17 brands on the Aus­tralian mar­ket. 5. Pretty nice rem­edy for re­dun­dancy you have there. 6. With that colour scheme it’s a bit more Planet Hulk than Thor Rag­narok wouldn’t you say?
