    Area 66 lab

    Here some pic of my shop, since I'm semi-retire I have mainly only business customers, I go to their place no one come in my shop, but still I need on,e since I focus on hardware, I don,t have money left to decorate the walls, so don,t look too much at them, lol



    First, the main shop when we go inside the building, nothing special, my OLD 21" CTR at firts plan, another space for repair something and far the shop PC





    Here a closer look at the shop PC, an old gaming PC that I recycle, I use it to search info on the web or download drivers , only the CPU is still under water. Maximus III Extreme





    here the other side, with another space to make some work







    Finally we go down in the lab , firs pic a view of the VM servers and my Data transfer work station





    Here a closer look to the servers, not at the end it's a Silverstone TJ-07 also retire, it as a quad and triple rad inside , you also have on the wall a Rampage II gene that die of cooling ( Liquid Nitrogen ) , you have few Antec 300, a Supermicro with 2 xeon that I use as a SAN and a huge server at bottom , it'S my library server, I keep the non use VM and ISO there





    A closer lock at the D-link 8 ports KVM to manage the servers





    The data transfer, I use it to clone HD, or back up or save customer HD the PC at the side as a sata and power cable going out and also few USB enclosure, and of course some computer book





    Here my Bino for work on bent cpu socket pins, or other close work





    View of the other side , we can see at back my Vmware Workstaion PC, and few electronic testing equipment





    Closer look of my Vmware WS PC, an old Therrmaltake Armor case with a FX-8150 and Crosshair motherboard , my most trusty PC , some more book and a super micro motherboard with 2 xeon on it. you can also see one of my UPS at the back of the case





    My electonic lab



    Spare tubing and at the back my RO-DI unti to make my own water for the WC pc I build





    here a look at some spare part, you can see few rads, a Noctua DH14 and another one, a Cooler Master 212 and few HD cage





    that's it for now

    Chris, if I put paint there, my wife will ask me to re paint all the house, she will say " you put paint in the shop and not in the house. "

    here a pic of my setup in 1988 , they was no ROG at the time , look in the box at the bottom you can see my David Clark head set , was a time when I don't have problem of vision yet, I was flying planes. I have a pic of 1981 someplace , with an Apple I will try to find it

    > Those servers
    > That KVM

    That's hot man, I love it. Great setup. Inspirational.


    You should rack your servers up. I recently racked up a box that used to be in an Antec 300 case. Personally I just love racks...
