Yup, I have solved the question of what to line the interior of the drawers of the nightstand I'm making into a gaming PC tower. The answer: to hell with the stupid things!! I decide to just not use the drawers all together. Instead, I decided to make an open frame rack-mounted look computer tower. So I walked down to the local Home Depot, picked up a few tubes of PVC conduit piping-not too big, not too small-some non conductive non corrosive non metallic PVC clamps and preparing to start assembling things later this weekend or next week. The tubes will be supporting things such as the mother board, the PSU and other parts and components as well as the case fans and lighting cooling systems, wiring, drive bays etc. It's gonna be COOL!!!! DO EXPECT PHOTOS!!! This is a HUMONGOUS project after all. Big time.

I would really like to hear what everybody has to say about my mega-ambitious but very cool project even while its still in WIP stage.

Comments, Criticism and Critique are all always wanted and appreciated:)

if u had a picture or something that can help me visualize the idea u have . that would be awesome biggrin.gif

u want to put a computer inside a night stand ? well i could give u some ideas , put the motherboard on top , and the top drawer of the nightstand , replace the top of the furniture with a crystal top or something transparent , so that u can see the motherboard action , with lights and all smile.gif . i think all of that can fit in one drawer

imagine it as a desk mod , but smaller scale . it will be cool smile.gif and u just have to mod a drawer , and the sides of the furniture for some fans and some holes for the cables

Good call. Thanks. Do you think ANTEC 450Watt would be okay for this project? Any ideas how should to make the on/off and reset switches?????
post #6 of 6
Trying to visualize exactly what you plan on doing... sketchup? paint? a drawing? lol.

What hardware will you be using exactly?

A quality 450w will handle most single cards systems just fine, not sure what Antec one you are talking about though.
