To kickstart this, I am going to share my setup:
This is the imgur album if you wish to peruse, but I am going to post it below anyway:
Workspace 0: Autostarting tmux session with monitoring tools (used tmuxinator)
Workspace 1: My terminal workspace when it is tidy. What I use for general terminal work.
Workspace 1: My terminal workspace when it is messy.
Workspace 2: Web workspace, I use this for all things web, usually just chrome, occasionally selenium makes its way onto here too
Workspace 3: My Code workspace, I use this for my coding projects and editing config files occasionally. Editor is sublime text with Base16 Eighties theme.
Workspace 4: My file manager workspace, this is ranger, but thunar also defaults to this.
Workspace 5: Ncmpcpp/Spotify, all my music playing apps default here. I’ve been using spotify exclusively lately and it works really well.
Workspace 8: My IRC/Discord/Slack workspace. Where I hang out in work slack, discord and the 0x00sec IRC.
And now for my physical rig:
I built this very recently, and the specs are as follows:
- Intel Core i7-8700K (CoffeeLake) 6 cores @ 3.7 GHz
- 32GB Ram @ 3200MHz
- Nvidia GTX 1070ti
- NXZT x62 AIO Water Cooler
2 monitors (Soon to be upgraded!) And a DX Racer Formula series. The keyboard is a Corsair K70 RGB.
I might share my dotfiles, it depends if there is much demand for them. I’m very interested to see what everybody else has. @Nitrax, @fraq, @Phoenix750, @ricksanchez I gotta see them setups!
EDIT: @Phoenix750 has requested I go into deeper detail about the build:

For airflow I have a frontmounted radiator with 2 140mm fans bring air in, and a single 140mm fan bringing air in through the top. I have 1 exhaust fan, also 140mm. I get a good positive air pressure with this build, and the CPU at about 30-40’c. It is so quiet and even quieter than my MacBook Pro. Under load you can hear the graphics card spinning up, which has these 3 fans https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/515jAee9GsL.jpg
In hindsight, I would have gone with a blower type card with an exhaust, since this kicks heat out into the case rather than out the back. For a PSU, I’m just using a 650 watt fully modular Corsair PSU. This thing’s fan doesn’t even spin when it’s idling, so it stays very quiet. I can run the whole rig idling/low load overnight and not even notice it.
