[Scratch Build] UDesk [Airtight, Lowcost, Very low noise PC built in Desk] - Page 8

post #71 of 131
Lovin that sound dampening. I would definitely use it in the desk.

I have a few ideas I came up with awhile ago. 1 was actually going to be made but my guys moved out of state mad.gif

My most recent. Obviously going for a simpler/cheaper red harbinger design.

I never really saw the point of a 2 system desk until recently. Gaming on 1 side, Hackintosh on the other and it looks like a lot of people have this work/play setup as well.




Im 6'4 so I need a little extra leg room but if not...


To me its just a simple aluminum box with a lip for the glass top, a divider, and elevated motherboard trays. The rest, buyer can mod to their needs. But what the hell do I know about production rolleyes.gif absolutely nothing. Just my little contribution to the topic



Older mockups...

Interesting design, it might not be that easy to manufacture as it seems. I am also not rly fond of these 90 degrees sides on a table, it should be somehow beveled so you don't hurt your legs, when rapidly moving around.

I will get back to designing next project (most likely desk as well) once i will get closer to UDesk completion.

The rad is capable of running in passive mode if the system isn't both at 100% GPU and CPU. For hot summer days and OC benchmarks, there are fans, that are driven by tbalancer to switch on 300rpm if temps of water exceeds certain point. Result is the fans are idle 99% of time, only if i run some super demanding game for long time, they sporadically start spinning.

Last update of previous UCase project, soon we will get back to UDesk with some cool progress!

Back to UDesk!

This time you can look at the cooling solution - rads. One is internal one is external. The internal will cool inner environment, which is isolated from the outside.

This is awesome. I wish I had this kind of creativity.
