Share pics of your desktops/battlestations

Built my first waifu last week:

Yes I was a bit lazy on the wiring job
gfx: msi radeon r9 290x 4gb
cpu: amd fx8370
board: asus sabertooth 990fx
dedotitated wam: 16gb (2x8gb) g.skill ripjaws
hdd: 2TB WD green
psu: silverstone 700w
cpu cooler: cooler master seidon 120v liquid
optical drive: asus DRW-24B1ST
case: cooler master haf 912

I'm liking all my parts but I probably could have picked a better cpu and motherboard budget-wise (seeing as though the fx9370 would only be $10 more for a significant performance boost). However the cpu works great and the motherboard has a pretty badass bios so I'm not disappointed.

Boring desktop:

I decided to go ahead and install Windows 8.1; It feels like its just Windows 7 with a new explorer.exe which I have no problem with, and it seems fine compatibility wise. (i.e. it can run old stuff like VB6 and Halo CE with no apparent hiccups)

Running Metro Last Light (Everything is on max, except anti-aliasing which is set to ssaa 2x):

I'm building this one for my brother. The inside of it looks like Jeb Bush on account of picking a cheap case that doesn't make any room for cables in the back panel.

AMD FX-4350 4-Core 4.2GHz CPU

Got a giant revamp for my build when I needed a mITX case to travel efficiently. I call it the shoebox.

It's rocking:
i7-7700k @ 4.5GHz
16GB 3000MHz Corsair Vengeance DDR4 RAM
512GB SanDisk X400 SSD
1TB WD Green HDD
H75 Liquid Cooler (Literally broke the hoses trying to jam an H80i in there)
Intel 802.11 AC Wifi + Bluetooth 4.2 Wireless m.2 chip
1000W Sentey 80+ Bronze PSU (Ginormous overkill but I had it from my last build)

And the whole thing fits into a carry-on for a plane. I took out the liquid cooler and put it in checked baggage when going to Sweden because TSA would probably bitch at me, but didn't want a $1500 build in a bag that could be stolen. But with the liquid cooler in there, it literally makes close to no sound at all under heavy load and doesn't get higher than 85C.
