Tim Borja: this is freaking awesome. im planning on building my computer in the next
2-3 months. hoping prices might drop by the time i get back home from
deployment. i want to build a desktop like this but dont know how? are
there certain requirements you have to do? for example does the components
have to be placed on a metal sheet? something in lines of that so i dont
damage the components?
xxx267: this is incredible, i just got looking at your tutorial at the website you
posted and i will diffidently consider building this!
xxx267: how do you even get a desk that has a pocket of room and then glass to fit
a computer in it? ive been wanting to do something like this but i cant
find any kind of table or desk that as a gap between the board and glass
CDA441: well yeah, everybody has his own taste in deskmods.
CDA441: Building a desk like this is fun, just make sure you don't use wood like
mine, you should use MDF because it's easier to handle and it doesn't split
too fast. Designing is the hardest part, but if you know how to work with
google sketchup, it would be a fun project! I'm thinking about building a
new version of the desk in MDF and with hidden cables.
dirtydawgs588: lol LOVE the key switch although it can be easily bypassed by pulling it
out and connecting th wires
CDA441: that's what i also did, there's a 120mm fan that blows cold air from the
bottom into the card
Super100JKO: I'm building that cind of desk and it'll cost me 50-70e so..... I'll save
700e+ of your money you bought that... :P
CDA441: if you watch on my channel, you can see the new version of The Desk ;)
CDA441: The fans direct the air inside the case and gets out of the back where the
radiators are. No overheating at all. (except when the pump dies or coolant
CDA441: i know, but people with little knowledge of computers or electricity don't
know how to bypass it, and thanks by the way ;)
CDA441: I used a PCI Express X16riser cable
TITANbn: Yea that might be a problem. Where i live you can find it anywhere xD we
use it for heating and its dirt cheap ;)
Antoine SouleD: after 3months how is it?
CDA441: i don't know, i spend for about 1000 euros for the desk with all the
internals. The desk itself costs around 100 without working hours. You can
make one yourself.
TITANbn: Im planing on doing something like this but only larger, material is 50
euro with service cutting all the parts + 25 euros for a carpenters work.
You paid too much for this desk xD
Alexander Federowicz: This is really nice, and it makes periodic maint. inviting !!! Ten out of
CDA441: wood here is a lot harder to find, and it's also more expensive.
(especially in the city i live in)
CDA441: scrapped it, i now have a new one :P (still needs watercooling tho) It was
a nice desk, sturdy, but it was butt ugly. cable management sucked and
such. Now i have one with a false bottom and thicker legs :P
Caleb Hoo: Why that slow RAM??? Why not, say, at least 1600MHz RAM
CDA441: It's also what kind of wood and how that you paint it that counts :P if you
already have the wood and such, you won't pay as much as i do. My new desk
costed me around 80€ for an empty desk (without hardware)
RainySole: Well right now... Im not very good at puting together computers... Soo im
not really sure i should do that o.o
Cory10131: does this affect the heating of the computer since its being trapped in or
do you have the fans coming out of the desk aswell?
CDA441: It definitly would be badass!
CDA441: it now has: /watch?v=Pgz7p633p34 New desk 2.0 I forgot what the song is
Jason Wolfe: Whats the song? And its sweet! Would be cooler if it had cable management
RainySole: How much does one of those cost
CDA441: because it was cheap, and i didn't have anything faster. I'll upgrade in a
few years, but this desk is scrapped, and i've built a new one.
CDA441: + if you wanted to buy one, you should look at red harbinger, they'll sell
a desk to put a computer in it, but it costs more than you'll build it
CDA441: It's float glass, glass that's used in glass doors (breaks in little pieces
but stays suspended like a windshield
MrShownizzle: Watch marcsblogg desk mod, i like it more then yours
Xander De Boer: Heb je hem zelf gebouwd of gekocht?
