I'm Alexander, 18 years and live in Belgium.
Since i'm sick of watching my cold cathode lights shining everyday in my eyes, i decided to build a desk (with offcourse the feature that i can turn of my ccfls).
Reason why i'm building a desk is because i like working with my pc, unless i have to fix something in it... A desk is a very good solution, because you only have to lift the glass plate, and you don't have to sit on the ground with your pc.
Cable management and airflow are also better in a custom desk, so here it is:
Here's a sketchup model i've made in the beginning of the build.
2 x 4GB Patriot AMD Entertainment Edition RAM (1333MHz) + 2 x 4GB Geil Enhance Corsa (1333MHz)
Samsung SpinPoint 502HJ 500GB
Maxtor Diamondmax 250GB
LG Flatron W1934S (temporary)
Processor: XSPC Rasa Black (Acetal) waterblock
Pump: X2O 450 12v pump/res
Radiators: RX120 & Magicool Slim Dual 240
Temp: XSPC LCD Display Temp Sensor (wit)
Fan controller: Scythe Kaze Q3.5
Fans: 1x Scythe 120mm Slip Stream Slim & 4x BitFenix Spectre 120mm
Cooling fluid: Feser One Pure/No UV - Clear
Drainport: Enzotech Matt Black Sealing Plug
I don't have any sponsors, so i have to buy all the components myself.
Since i already have a buildlog on Highflow, i just post some pics here from what i've already done:
Scythe Kaze Q 3.5 delivered DOA:
Little overview with the desk painted:
New design/ colorcombination:
Bought a wooden plate that was too small, sawed it in half
Not too low at all!
Controlbox for the CCFL's:
Here's the wiring:
Got the Geil Enhanced Corsa from my brother! (thanks bro!)
Needs more cable management, but is not finished yet:
I've made some shelves (to put some books on, offcourse)
Also a new reinforcement plate:
Extra stuff to make the loop look better:
Doesn't it look awesome?
That's all for today folks! More to come! (if my order is going to be delivered...)
This is unbelievably epic.
Thanks! I appreciate it, it's also my first "real" casemod.
The graphics card and PSU arrived!
Sharkoon WPM 500
Put it all together:
Cable management is not optimal...
Close up from the card
Then, the postman came with another delivery
Desk waiting for glass plate
3Dmark Vantage score
This is how i've made a molex extension cable
Scraping off the old isolation
Makes a lot of tiny sticky pieces
New paintjob for the riser
Glass plate arrived
New monitor (Samsung T240)
This looked a bit boring
Some faux leather around it then
Don't be upset but this is a bit of a ghetto mod
I mean you have so many different colours, so many things to either hide or change colour of.
Don't get me wrong, you built a desk pc with your own hands which is respectfull. But I think you can make it even better if you put in some more money and time.
Yes it's a ghetto mod, actually it's a deskmod on a really small budget.
I need to sleeve some of the cables, but now i'm out of money for modding. It's time to save up a bit before modding again
Hi This Is Awesome i plan on Making something similar so may i ask how far back does it go width wise thanks
