Yep.  You can usually just google "Aeron Chair Repair" in your area and you'll find them.

 

 

I had an Aeron Chair at my old job and loved it. Found one at one of those used office furniture places for about $150.

Lucky!

Out here they still go for near-new prices.

I had the seat snap on my previous chair.

Was given the option to replace the seat for like $400 or simply trade it in for a new chair for $600.

My momma didn't raise no dummy!

NEW CHAIR!

I'll take another look, but between general furniture and tech, I've looked at thousands of items this past week alone.

Yes.

 

Screw the three monitors simulating an extra-wide screen!

Go for the 2x2 layout (with the eventual 2x3, naturally).

 

Ok, but should I just get the x4 mount now or the x6 to allow room to grow? Trying to reduce my overall costs.

Room to grow.  The 6-mount looks like it can be arranged in a way to get some decent variety in placement.

 

Now to actually find it though or something like it. 😛

That search didn't go well, unfortunately.

Maybe a used mount would be good enough?  Maybe a craigslist purchase (is craigslist even still a thing?).


It's actually how I found a place in LA that actually had my Thermaltake Core X9 case, still new-in-box.

Trying to find them ANYWHERE else online is damn near impossible.

If you spend a great deal of time at your desk, for work and play, then I highly recommend investing in a sit-stand desk. You may be able to get those at a used office furniture place as well, but I got mine here...

If you are handy or know someone who is that can make a top for you, it cuts down on the price.

Can't have a chair on carpet without a solid mat and This thing has done well under dad's chair for 6+ months now with no dips or moving at all. AMZ Link

While it might protect the carpet some.  I don't have any problems on mine because I have carpet-friendly casters and I keep them scrupulously clean.

The mats always (ALWAYS) get brittle within a year or two and start shattering.

I've tried pliable ones.  I've tried super-thick, super-big, super hard mats, and pretty much everything in between.

They all die horribly.

TBH, finding one that works with the desk is a bit more of the pinch point here. The 6 monitor ones seem to have a <2" limit on the grip mounts for some reason. Well, the ones with good reviews that is. They have twin vertical supports and are said to be more stable.

The First one I got for dad from the local store (the kind that come folded) certainly did end up sagging where the wheels were.  The new one I got him like the one I pointed out is holding its own Very well for the 9+ mo he's been using it. He kills chairs even faster though because he'll end up basically leaning to one side for long periods of time. Unlike me, who's body constantly has to move periodically because I'll become uncomfortable. Probably an amusing thing for people to watch I'm sure. 😛

@Hyperstrike, did you have input about that question? What would happen if I tried using the 3770k's APU while using the GTX 970? I thought I read somewhere that the APU becomes the primary GFX handler and graphical performance takes a hit.

AFAIK, you can use the APU so long as you're using the interface on the back of the board.

I suppose an update would be helpful. Here's where I'm at for the moment:

 

First, I had a mini-heart attack

 

Spoiler

20210429_140437.thumb.jpg.c590292499163e7da0fc9f2a7d16d0e4.jpg

 

...but it all survived without even a ding.

 

What was:

Spoiler

 

This room had been completely different than even this, but this is after having dug everything out and cleaned. As you can see, the old desk suffered at the hand of a smoker (and much bigger than me), so it was going to go no matter what. The only thing left on it was really the network which will end up in one of the corners when I'm done.

20210429_141844.thumb.jpg.b5d9fa1a5b185c572e6922fccaae07f0.jpg

 

 

What I'm starting with now:

Spoiler

 

My self-pwn image for @Hyperstrike to /nelsonlaugh at. Yeah, this is WAY before cleanup time (which happens once everything is done). Note: I've modified the cup and headphone holder locations as they would have stuck out quite a bit to the left/right of the desk. Took an extra few minutes with my new drills and careful alignment, but I got it the way I think it'll work best for me.

Showing off the new space I have to deal with now. This will better help me decide how to proceed with my furniture and tech purchases.

So how long before you build a Quantum Computing Build so you can have Yesterday's cores too? :p

Well.  Have a nasty surprise.

For some reason, my board REFUSES to boot with the hard drives for the array on it.
WIring still needs work.
