    I would appreciate your feedback on this. I just purchased a new case (Corsair 570x) and I am not sure if should leave it on my desk as the case does look quite good and it should be out to be seen :D The one problem i am facing now is the right hand side speaker has nowhere to go. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Or the other question is should I have it set up like i did with my old case in the wardrobe for a cleaner look?

    Yeah love the look, you've got a nice clean set up going there, well done.

    What's the case in the first pic?

    Lay your speakers on their sides.
    Even though it is a nice case to have out, I think the lack of room and loss of space it creates will soon have the better of you and it will be in where the old pc was.
    I see there are cupboards underneath RHS: bummer, would have been nice to tuck under the bench.

    I will try to do some fine tuning soon thinking about buying 4x 10-15cm legs and a making a wooden shelf so i can raise the pc and have more storage underneath the shelf

    something like this but custom length made

    On the shelf under the desk. But in the cupboard was far better. Really nice setup.

    Have a look at store bough monitor stands. they are good for putting a pc case on, especially if u want to raise it off a carpet floor for better airflow.

    if you own the place you could build a floating shelf in the same material as your desk above your desk to put the case on.

    I have my NZXT Phantom case sitting on two of these:

    Keeps them off the floor and is movable too. Couldn't find anything cheaper than that.

    Very nice! I think it looks much better with the system away in the cupboard and all the wires fully hidden. Symmetry of the speakers definitely makes a lot of difference. But really looks great whichever way you choose to have it :)

    Ok did some more tweaking tonight and this is the result for now.

    I centred the screen in the middle between the wall and the tower speakers fit pretty well now

    Just remove those cords for the keyboard and mouse and it would be perfect.

    Looks great dude.

    Def need the computer on the desk, that case it just too sexy to have hidden away.

    Not really a fan of the light I would opt for a LED strip on the back of your monitor. It would reduce clutter even more and highlight your monitor a bit more. Let your case light that corner.

    I literally cant fit my case on my desk so I made it a riser/stand with wheels on the back so I can drag it out and avoid that 'shuffle' you have todo. Not super sexy but it matches my shitty old white desk and the case.

    Also I think a full length mouse pad that your keyboard can sit on that is all black will make it look cleaner too. The razer pad is a bit distracting.

    Thinly veiled, look at my beautiful and clean desk setup :p

    Seriously looks really good. I think the case is too PRETTTYYY to have in the cupboard. Would be awesome of you could mount on the wall above the monitor and still hide the cables. But where you have it in the second lot of pics works nice.
