Shelfuter - Computer in a Shelf

Shelfuter

Shelfuter is my first mod pretty much, you can't really class a side panel mod a mod because of how easy it is. but anyways.

I do have some joinery experience of course, and a step dad who works with stainless steel anyways pics below



Ok, the wood here is just simple chipboard, When I built the shelving I wasn't particularly going for anything fancy. So I will be putting wood at the back there and to the right all the way to the bottom of the shelf, I don't fancy showing much of the wall.



I will be covering over the screws you can see to the left. I will possibly get my step dad to make me a mobo tray as well as pci slots and the I/O. but we'll see



I will fill in the gap at the far bottom right as well. and cover the screws over. I aim not to have any visible screws





So your aware, The shelf to the right is also exactly the same as it is to the left of the TV, it's an absolute mirror image apart from the shelf to the left being 2 cm smaller in width. I just haven't included it in the picture for some reason

So yeah, dimensions.

height: just under 640mm
depth: a foot, just over 300 mm
width: just under 400mm

So I have a fair amount of room to play with.

Part 1 will be putting my hardware in (hardware below)
  • GA 970A-DS3
  • AMD FX 6200
  • 2x4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz
  • Powercool 550W PSU (might change)
  • AMD 5750 GPU (changing for a 7950)
  • 90GB Corsair Force GT 90GB SSD
  • 1TB HDD, 320GB HDD
  • Noctua fans

Part 2 will be watercooling it, although the watercooling part will be split into 2 parts as well
  • BlockNot so sure, I quite like the Koolance stuff, as it would match my white and black theme seems there blocks are a black/silver sort of colour. The EK supremacy is also an option, would go for the nickel plated plexi verion.
  • Rad 360 alphacool Monsta Rad, possibly the white version
  • Fittings Going to go for the Matte Black fittings or the deluxe white from Bitspower.
  • Coolant Will go with blue coolant
  • Tube Tubing will be blue
  • Pump/Res DCP 4.0 Set

Thats pretty much it

Constructive criticism welcome

Thanks

Going to have to think more about cable management, perhaps by leaving 20-30mm between the wood and the wall at the back and have various cable management holes.

SketchUp coming soon!

It looks pretty cool and its a cool idea but you might consider adding a couple of verticle braces under the tv to the floor, chipboard isn't the strongest and it will get weak with weight.

Thanks very much guys.

I know, the entire shelf does have a small dip due to the TV, Although that can't be seen in the photo. In my opinion having something to support it from the floor doesn't make it a shelf, if you get me drift. So i might just put a second chipboard to have two layers of wood at the bottom, which might just take away the dip.
