Remote controlled power/reset switches. One of them is powered via PCI-E x1, the other via a USB 2.0 header. I don't need them at all, I just love collecting weird tech.

Also, a GeForce GT 1030, because I've had enough of my 710 failing to perform its simple task of playing films without stutter.

A lot of people dis on the 1030, but it's not a bad GPU. It can do a respectable job for 720p/1080p gaming in a SFF PC.

I had a 1050Ti in a low profile HTPC with an i5 3550 before i moved to an android smart TV, and that little sucker could even manage games like pubg at 1080p

They are not top tier gaming cards, but they ARE solid for entry level

Agreed! The low-profile 1050ti is an excellent card for SFF PCs!

And while the 1030 GDDR5 version is the preferred model, the DDR3 version is not crap.

Totally! I used to have another 1030, but it broke. I thought the 710 would be enough too, but it wasn't. I also have a passively cooled Palit 1050 Ti in the drawer, which I'll probably never sell. :D

I might use one of them for my HTPC. Combined with my Bluetooth mouse, it actually makes some sense. The other one will be a nice piece of decoration on my shelf next to the pci-e x4 GT 710 and the passive 1050 Ti. :D

I've long considered getting one of those remotes for my HTPC, and even for the NAS so I don't have to get a stool out to switch it back on in case of a power outage (it's on the top shelf in a closet). Ended up just putting the HTPC to sleep waking it with the mouse, but I might still get one for the NAS. Given that power outages are really rare and it's dead stable I haven't seen the need, but I still really like those products.

Got the 'phones a few months ago, but had them hanging around, literally, my desk in unusual and non-productive spots, including the wall heheh. Went and grabbed a very unnecessary, but more useful, 4-port USB2 hub/stand.I'm liking it :)

Why side by side with only 2? Mount those bad boys one on top of the other. Believe me, it works A LOT better and is more space efficient.

That sounds like an ergonomic nightmare - a recipe for neck strain injuries. You might be lucky enough to not be susceptible that, but for most people, regularly using a screen anywhere above eye height poses a significant risk of long-term injury.

I bought their 8g package with my last order. I like this stuff and had to buy more because I was running low lol. If you guys are ever in the market I don’t know if this stuff can be beat for the price. I paid 15 beaver bucks and got it 2 days later :)

This is how I have my systems. If done properly there are no issues.

My neck says "fucking ow"

the rightmost monitor is used rarely, tbh. It's failing (only works reliably at 120Hz and not 144Hz) so i use it when i'm doing teleconference, stress testing for more monitoring apps, or sometimes just with a chromecast connected to play stuff while i'm farting about in the BIOS or whatever

shot them for 160€ instead of 250€...
arriving on Tuesday
Damn, you jumped on them!

Tips: install G hub, update the firmware - then go into device manager and reinstall the USB driver with the same driver, and it solves 99% of connectivity issues
the new firmware fixes a *lot* of problems, and gives seperate bass and treble control

Mine doesn't. All three of my personal systems are setup similar to the following;

Works very well. Been doing displays setup like this since 2006 when widescreen LCDs first became mainstream. Never experience neck pain.
