Desks that keep your rig propped off the floor

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Unenclosed! Looking for something like this:

492

Except with the enclosure on the right side, for obvious fan related purposes. I don't care about what the desktop looks like as I'm not even sure what i want in that department. Figured I'd begin the search with the most important piece thumb.gif

I just use a black plank of what used to be a shelf that I didn't need where it was. It happened to be the perfect size, sticking out a couple inches on each side. Sounds ghetto, but it really don't look bad at all.

If that's all you're really wanting, why buy a whole new desk? Just get a piece of wood generally the size of your computer's footprint, and call it good.

That's what I do now, but I need a new desk anyway. May as well accommodate in a less ghetto fashion if its possible thumb.gif

If the PC is to the left of the desk, it should be something like below:-
588

425



Alternatively, the PC can be to the right of the desk. And it looks like:-
626


I advise thinking twice of placing a PC close to the floor. My experience is the PC will suck in a lot more dust (relative to being placed on a desk) when it is placed close to the floor (even when it is 6'' above the floor).

I'm going to be building a desk soon. Thinking about doing something like this for my rig.

The 1st and 3rd tables are just for illustrating an idea. As the actual tables are sold in China, I do not think it is economical to ship them to UK/US.

The 2nd table is from an UK store. Here:-
