The Minimal Ultrawide Workspace

The Minimal Ultrawide Workspace

Over at the battlestations subreddit, repens picked up a shiny new ultrawide monitor and wanted to do something a little different with his desk to accomodate it. The end result is this good-looking, minimal, distraction-free setup.

Scroll down a bit in his thread and repens details the rig that powers the whole shebang:

Currently running an i7 4770k with 16GB of RAM (I really need to get 32GB) and a single 980ti in a Lian Li Tyr X500. I’ve also got a Lian Li v2000b I’ve been working on which this will eventually get transplanted into.

Monitor is an LG 34UM95

I had some Audioengine A2s on my desk, but I’ve gotten a bit tired of them so they’re in my closet until I find something else I like. Audio currently is handled by an Emotiva XDA-2 and a Schiit Lyr with Hifiman HE400’sAnd finally – the desk is here.

Thanks for looking!

If you love the keyboard as much as I do, you’ll want to check this comment, where he explains how he had it made — and the components you’ll want to reproduce it. You can pick up the PCB yourself, and his keyboard is using MX Cherry Greens with Dolch DSA keycaps.

The whole thing just looks serene, perfect for getting some work done, plenty of space on the desktop to spread stuff out if he needs to, and, of course, that ultrawide is probably fun for movies and games, as well, if he’s into that sort of thing. If you dig it, you can check out the whole gallery, or hit the link below that to head over to Reddit and let him know how nice the setup is.
