Too big for the desk, too nice for the floor.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My new case (Corsair 800D) is a beast but it's got side window and underside air intake. I'd like to get it off the floor but there's no way I want it on my desk.

I'm thinking I need to build or mod some furniture for a custom stand of some sort.

Suggestions and photos of your solutions would be great!

i put together a few pieces of wood, cut out two holes in the wood where the case intake is, and let it sit there. Keeps it up off the carpet, painted the wood black so it looks like an extension of the case. nice and simple smile.gif

If your close enough to a wall, build a small (but sturdy) shelf for it to sit on. Im fortunate to have a huge old hardwood desk that my case fits on along with my 2 24.6" monitors and I still half plenty of room. When I get a new GPU and a third monitor, I'll be building a shelf on the wall...
