@itsage, Hi there! Took me longer to put everything in place, had to drill some holes for proper cable management in my desk, get myself a proper monitor, but I did eventually organized everything to look neat. Had a chance in the meantime to learn some cool stuff about overclocking and managed to get some pretty nice results after this. 

Here's a look at my set-up:

This is the benchmark before overclock-ing:

Below the benchmark after overclock-ing:

Overall, I'm the happiest with my 16" MBP, I'm able to use it at my office on macOS and be productive and I can happily boot Windows on it at home and do whatever I want during my free time. Mostly went through all the hassle to be able to play Modern Warfare at some good settings at a high FPS and I do not regret my choice. Feel free to ask me anything if you have any questions. 

 

Until then, wish you all the best, 

Greetings from lovely Romania!
