Small single day computer desk&case mod

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Well yesterday on a whim I decided I wanted to do something new with my sig rig. I recently got a 2nd monitor, and with my custom case(quad cube) taking up a good third of my desktop real estate, I decided it was time for a change. I have a bunch of supplies laying around from previous work, mods and builds. So I decided that I wanted to do something that would cost me nothing. The entire cost of this build was $1.05 for 4 nuts and bolts, and about 12 hours of my time today. I kept the documentation short and sweet so this wont be very long. I hope you guys enjoy this. biggrin.gif

This was my setup just before going to work. I had already moved a few things by this point.

K so first of all I started with mounting my brand new control panel. Never been used before, was from a previous mod where I decided to use something else. This baby includes: power, reset, mic, audio, 2 USB 2.0, firewire and an ambient temperature monitor for both Ferinheight and Celsius.

Next, I spent several hours taking apart and cleaning my sig rig. Then clearing off the desk and building the new 'case' for my computer. These next few pics are of my PC inside its new 'case', just before I was getting ready to mount it.

And here we are after some grunting and maybe a little cursing. Sucker is heavier than it looks.

And after hooking everything up, and a little wire management, I slid the desk back and this is what iv got.
