SETUP REFRESH Episode 8 – Cable Management (VLOG)

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

Hi guys it's mark from silence tech and welcome to episode 8 of setup refresh in today's episode I'm mainly going to be focusing on cable management's trying to get rid of those nasty bird's nests that were developing in my gaming setup anyway without further review let's jump straight into episode 8 oh setup refresh let's go before that actually I totally forgot there's my new gaming chair would you look at that beauty this is the noble chair I just did a review on the icon series I absolutely love this chair it's amazing it's not going to stay clean for very long I used to have the red and black version

Of this chair and it actually is softer for some reason I don't know they must have improved it somewhere along the lines I spoke to a couple of my subscribers in my previous video and I was talking about sort of how long the whites going to last I don't think it's going to last very long to be honest with you guys I reckon it's can end up getting filthy before long especially if I wear you know black jeans or anything along those lines so I would you know if you're thinking of buying one of these I would highly recommend not wearing black jeans or a black top just wearing white

Or something like this which is point faded these are just my knocking about trousers around the house and things like that you know believe it or not guys when I actually go outside which is not very often at the moment I do dress quite smartly but yeah I absolutely love it I am so happy with that I love the white on black it just really does set the chair off so sets it apart from any other chair I've really seen before I've seen what impact chairs but this one's just so what it just looks absolutely awesome I think now thinking of getting like be extended glorious

White sand mousepad I don't know if you know the one thinking about getting that I really want to like paint my GPUs and stuff is a really good at spraying things are anyway I'm walking in on you've seen the chair now let's move that out the way here's the cable management stuff I've got it's quite basic as a minute I'm still waiting for some free empaths and some free and tape but I've got these things and they're actually quite good they're essentially little you have to excuse the plaster I like ripped my nail off nearly a few weeks ago and by doing like this plaster

I keep catching it and it hurts anyway the like little sticky pads and they work really well you need about four am on each thing ideally or like some free empty but these are what just what I had leftover on a cable managed mister last of course have got velcro straps and the left also got these little things which is uh essentially little little hooks with some free M tape which would be great for cable managing the wires and not necessarily cable management have also got some LED strips I don't think I'm going to be able to install them today although I'd

Like to but the idea of today's video is to get the cables cleaned up because I am fed up with one I'm shooting my videos having cables everywhere in the background and it looks horrible and it's ruining my videos so we're going to start under the desk and we're going to first of all we're going to do a few wires but we're not going to be able to finish everything today because it's just too much that knees finishing elsewhere before I can do the cable management like painting wallpapering etc etc so I set up a desk set up the desk I've set up the light under the

Desk so hopefully you can be able to see fairly well so let's start okay guys this is it so far this is a hell of a job because I've got a pea seed over there I need to route all the wires are going to essentially make two holes behind the PCs and route cables up through there so we're talking forward to spray port cables power cables USB

Cables HDMI cables for the other PC so cue kettle leads mobile ah you know the keyboard mouse you've got like sound bass and you've got the Scarlett's solo interface then you've got the sound blaster x7 as well it's going to be a lot of cables this is this is just the start guys this is just a start but at the moment that's pretty much as far as I can go because I've got a rule paper over on this side pull up I've got a wallpaper that wall so this desk here has got to come come out so I can't cable managed across from this desk underneath the pcs

Because I'm gonna have to rip it all out again and start wallpaper in so there's no point in me doing that now I'm like a muscle wait to a little paper so what we're going to do now that's going to look super clean when it's done what I'm going to do now is show you my DisplayPort cables that I've got for the monitors the new DisplayPort cables and HDMI cables then I'm going to start doing some testing both pcs to make sure the cables will work because I went for an absolute nightmare with Amazon and buying different DisplayPort cables and they essentially just didn't work a lot

Of us I bought one Spade port cable they needed to be five metres the longer the DisplayPort cables are the more if here they are they're not like HDMI cables they don't you know if they start becoming too long you see that having trouble with flickering things along those lines so essentially what I'm going to have to do now is test every single cable so I'm glad to play some games all that it's just such a hard life isn't it happen to play a games right so we're going to do that now we're only just starting to get

Into it this is just where the fun begins we've got four DisplayPort cables one point two five meter cables and then we've got five meter HDMI cables as well two of them so two of these HDMI cables are going to go into the second PC and four DisplayPort cables are going to be going into the main the main rig there's going to be a lot of fun this right we are getting somewhere now I've mounted the plug adapter on the wall I've routed all the cables was so nice

Neatly it was absolutely fantastic I've got a lot of slack coming off here I've decided to put in an extra hate on display port cable as a backup so if one of these cables ever fails I've got another cable in there but it's only three metres so we'll see how we get on with that and I've also got one HDMI cable is well I may put another one in as well so I have two HDMI cables on five DisplayPort cables mmm so yeah I guess we're just going to drill a hole in a desk we've got hammer on should never a good thing

no cables underneath voila we now have a hope Giver okay that's perfect exactly how we wanted it I wouldn't be putting the mouse cable through the reason for that is like I said that minik go cause I'll be over using the wireless mouse and then when I go to start gaming I'll be using with re FK – there so it doesn't matter to me if it's wired at all jobs are building another thing I love about the ROG Claymore as the fact that the USB cable is behind it so it didn't stick out so

It looks super clean that's just going perfect just what I wanted so that's that done now you can plug this in under here we've got loads of slack on it so it's not there is a problem you can't move it we've got loads of slack there that's thanks to the USB hub we should highly recommend anyone getting because it makes the back of your PC look so much cleaner because you just got one USB port going into the back of the PC and then you've got the hub underneath your desk where you can just put everything you need to into that which makes it

Look super clean that's pretty much it for now guys as far as that's concerned the next thing we need to do so start drilling holes behind the PC which is not going to be fun next to pick the other PC away I still have to prop this desk up properly prop this disk up properly so it's kind of like that a little bit it needs to come up a little bit more I need to do underneath fix that but right now we can still do a bit more of the cable management I just got a screwdriver on the back and worked out where I want the cables to come through and Mark the hole so now all you need to

Do is move the PC and draw another hole like I just did with the mouse and keyboard yes perfect no cables in sight now I've just realized even though that even though those cables are long enough the second PC the power cable for that is not going to be long enough so I'm going to have to buy and never adapt I love a power adapter and have that underneath their path

How annoying but yet so far so good guys okay guys well that is the first part of the cable management video I can't actually do any more next step is going to be wallpapering the side wall and painting the wall with the monitors on I'm going to be painting that white I also want to put some white key carps on my ROG Claymore I want to get the white glorious extended mousepad and I want to get the Logitech G 7:03 which is white in black and it will just look absolutely stunning overall the setup is just looking amazing I can't believe how well it's turned out especially with the

Fact that I can pull the ultra white down I hope you haven't forgot that I can do that and yes I still need to rebuild the 570 X that's going to look absolutely awesome is my second PC I need to do a few tweaks with a fan tech sieve old case like putting the extended cables going into the 210 ATT is so happy with how this has turned out it couldn't have gone any better really it's been a lot of effort and it's been a long way since when I first started the first step those of setup refresh I'm probably going to keep set up refresh as a series

Going indefinitely on the channel there may be a few tweaks to how I do it but overall it's essentially going to stay the same in focus on setup related content anyway guys I hope you've enjoyed episode 8 of setup refresh the next episode will be coming up part 2 of the cable management my name is Mark from silent tech goodbye
