    I was just looking around YouTube and saw this incredible setup by this guy MrThaiBox123.

    Hes just had a custom desk made for a mac pro with 6 27 inch cinema displays.

    although im a regular reader on here i had to create an account to show this to you guys as i think you will appreciate it.

    Yep, I agree.
    I'd love to have that setup for running X-Plane.

    Nice to see he finally got a proper desk..

    I like his videos but his setup is a bit over the top.

    Yeah, I posted a link to his room-tour some time back. He's certainly interested in bling-factors. A lot better than doing drugs or nicking other people's goods for sure tho - so no objections here!

    That is one heck of a setup....I too would love it for X-Plane...The visuals alone would be worth the investment...

    Now...Who wants to buy a brand new maxed out Imac 27"

    Oh, wait...no new Pro yet.:)

    Over the top AND still lacking. Why do all of that and leave the computer on the floor? Get a Sonnet bracket and hang it under the desk. I also think the computer is on the wrong side. It should be on the left so he has access to the door to get inside without having to move the computer.

    3 of those displays are Dell's. That sucks. Then again, Apple Display's kind of suck too. Not my cup of tea. Day trader wank-fest right there. Complete with the pony-tail.
    Rather have 1 Eizo CG276. Or 2:D

    He is. He has been installing virtualized environments for the last 15 years.

    True, but from the look of it he's a day trader, and won't be going inside of the tower . . . . . . EVER. Hopefully he maxed out the RAM and put some SSDs inside. Otherwise, I agree. Setting a workstation up so the panel is blocked off is a big no-no.

    What is my job and how do i make my money

    From one of his other YouTube videos he says that he uses that setup for Spread Betting. His 8 -5 job is implementing virtual environments/infrastructures. Given what it takes to do that I have no doubt that he is fully capable of upgrading the internals of his Mac Pro. He also mentions that he is part of Honey Management. I am not sure if that is the correct link or not since I just Googled "Honey Management".

    Designing and installing VMware (ESXi, vSphere, and vCenter), Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix. Usually involves high end servers, SANs, and the networking to make it happen. Virtualized server environments make it so you can run tens, hundreds, or even thousands of servers on a single powerful host server. It also allows you to have servers move between hosts for connivence during maintenance or upgrades and for hardware failure.

    I deal a lot with VMware and thankfully not so much with Hyper-V anymore.

    That would a very expensive setup.


    I actually wanted to learn more about that a couple years ago, but lack of appropriate testing hardware killed that. ESXi seems cool though. I've been through a couple books on it.

    But it would result in an even better Mac Pro setup.

    He works for a cable company.

    Very good points, especially about the access panel facing the wrong way.
    I hope nothing breaks, because it looks like a pain in the ass to service anything.

    if all you monitoring is networks the quality of the panel is't all that important.

    Not sure how useful that would be but it WOULD be nice to maximize my browser and not have to scroll as far through one of Decontruct60's replies!

    I won't be impressed until computer monitors fill half the room like when the guy on Idiocracy is watching "Ow, My Balls!"
