    Hi everyone, Im happy to share with you my new project, its a PCDesk Mod

    Well since my last mod didnt receive the "shares" I wanted from the brands (HAF in HALF video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67tdCmEaEc0 ) that supported the build, I wanna move foward to this one and make something unique and possible for everyone, thats something I always try to pass for those who see my content, everyone can do this you just gotta plan everything well enough to avoid major problems.
    Why a desk? Well I dont like big cases and since "setups" are starting to be a trend I wanna remake my own so nothing better than make a new desk with a PC built in.

    So key words are:
    - Confort
    - Performance (air flow/temperatures)
    - Simplicity

    Well still need to edit all the content about it, but for now this is what I have to show



    Best Regards Tankian

    Hi everyone!
    Well I just realese a video yesterday about the project and I have more photos to show you. Basicly I've already than a lot in the "wood" working and I'm quite happy with the result I was expecting a bit more dificulties in this part. Right now I'm waiting for the metal plate to get ready to continue the project.

    Hi everyone!

    As I promise big update today, work myself hard these Saturday to place everything together, IM EXCITED!

    So I started with the fake bottom, making all the holes for cable routing/management. I don't want to attach the "fake bottom" in "bented" plate mostly because if I decide to redo anything in the future I will be able to remove it.
    As you guys saw I did all the motherboard standoffs holes with a old motherboard only to be easier and more accurate, It ended up really well!
    The fans was a bit disappointing I wanted to use a big drill to open a 110mm circle for each fan, but after waiting 1 week for that drill the store told me that I need to wait 3/4 mouths because they doesn't had stock available, so I decided to go with the octagon style.
    After doing all of these, big moment, atatch everything together, I was a bit afraid with the plate that stay in the top back, mostly because it will be use to secure the monitor holder, but after screw it against the metal it got really strong, so problem solved!
    The two wooden bars that I use in the back are basicly to pass cables between the wall and the wood plank in the back, creating 50mm of space between the desk and the wall for the air that comes from the out-take fans go away.

    Well lets move on to the photos and video! :rockout:

    When the plate arrived



    Cutting holes for cable routing in the "fake bottom" plate







    Motherboard standoffs holes done.





    Fans Holes



    First Idea with the fans then I decided to go for 2 in each side and 2 in the middle







    Power Supply back hole





    Motherboard shield hole



    GPU hole, with the 1080 ti testing is future home ahaha







    Current state photos, here you can see the wooden bars in the back giving me the extra 5cm for cables and air flow

    Well I hope everyone like it!

    Best Regards Tankian!

    Hi everyone!
    Well after 3 week I have news about the project, I manage to sand all the wood and metal pieces to apply the primer and even make some "upgrades" to the project concept.

    So first I had to apply all the polyester in the areas needed, I even had to apply it more thant one time in the same place, something I expect but took me a bit more time to set everything ready to primer the desk.
    After aplying it in some areas I decide to make a rim all arround the top area to give a bit more resistance to the desk and provide a better surface for the glass, at the same time providing a trim all around the center "hole" to place some LED if needed.
    Then was time to apply once again polyester in some areas to make everthing look better.
    After sanding and applying the primer I realise something was a bit miss align in for the glass so before painting and get mad about the miss align thing yesterday I decide to correct it, I applied again primer to the front section and order the glass!

    Before jumping into the video and photos I wanna say that I'm doing some livestreams about this project in twtich:

    Let see how thing went!

    Polyester and sanding















    Water Cooling "ideas"








    Primer applied




    Small correction I did



    So any thoughts about it?

    Next phase is basicly make small holes for any cable I need to pass to the back of the case and starting to sand again for painting!
    Anyways there is still a lot to do but with time and patience thing will ne finish!


    Best Regards tankian!

    Hi everyone another update!

    So I manage to paint the desk, even painted 2 times, in the first time the coulor was to dark so I had to paint the desk again. After painting the outside I used black matte spray for the inside.
    Then I moved to the legs, I dont know if some of you spot the idea in the beginning when I did the legs but I always wanted to make it like this, so you kinda have the computer connected to the desk (even more).

    Didnt had time for more mostly because I had my first modding workshop, and if I believe the first in portugal so it took me a lot of time to set everything for that workshop.

    Some photos about the workshop













    Anyways lets move to the videos and photos!

    Desk first paint work (didnt took photos from the 2nd paint work):






    Leg lights:








    Some standoff I decide to buy:



    Honestly I didnt took that much photos, so defenetly I recomend you to see the video to see how everything was done.
    Still have a lot of work to do but with time things will be done I'm 100% commited to this project!

    If you wanna keep it touch with the desk you guys can follow my twitch channel I've been doing some live streams about it.

    Hi everyone after 1 month of waiting for parts, solving costums insues I'm back and happy to announce the last build phase video.

    So basicly was about time to bring the desk inside my room and start mounting everything, weld the LED's needed and mounting the water cooling.
    The water cooling will be in soft tube, mostly because I didnt found any sponsor, besides Cooler Master that decided to enter in this last month, and to moving for hard tube I needed to buy again new fittings that I already had bought, it was impossible for my wallet lol

    So lets move to the video and photos:

    Awesome job man!
    Nice and clean.

    I do have a question about your front facing and rear fans. The one in the middle is a dangerous location if you are sitting right in front of them. You know what i mean?

    Its hard to see the back of the desk but do you have enough space for the fans to vent? Its going to be pretty toasty back there.
