[Build] Custom monitor mount for VIKA AMON/ VIKA ANNEFORS

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just thought I'd share this since the community likes mods and stuff.

I have an ikea Vika AMON, the longest one they have.

There's a leg in the middle that supports it up with 2 VIKA ANNEFORS for the sides

I bought a (Rosewill RMS-MS2740 Black 13" - 27" Tilt/Swivel Wall Mount) which is designed to be mounted to a stud in the wall.

I then made a thing that screwed into the desk, sandwiched between the legs.

Here are some pictures:

After:

In the second pic, I don't know if you can see it, but it deflects about a mm or 2. I plan to revise it and go with steel instead of aluminum next time.

Thanks for reading/stopping by!

Nice looking build! I just bought myself the Vika Amon and bought two standard legs for one side and I'm waiting on the Vika Annefors for the other.

I was wondering, how do the Vika Annefors actually connect to the Vika Amon? Does it just balance or is there some sort of sticky pads or screws connecting them?

I love the custom mount though, will have to look into doing that. Do the Annefors have enough ventilation for your case too? I assume it's ATX.

Thanks biggrin.gif
