You could also mount your surge protector on the back of the desk. Clears floor cable mess and you have a permentent power source. Kind of like the idea you had for the router in your op. Not totally sure how to wire all this up with power, but I know its possible.
Did you come up with a plan for the fan controls? I am partial to this
