TankianDesk

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:
) 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! :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











And last the guy trying to make a pc desk xD







Video I did about the project









Well I hope everyone like it!


Best Regards Tankian!
