Desk with built in computer case
This is a custom desk top with a case built into it. I have set the case for water cooling holding 2 360 rads at the front with air intake on the sides of the case. The power supply will be kept hidden behind the motherboard tray to keep the wiring neat. Also there will be no internal DVD drive I have instead opted to go with a external DVD drive for the 3-4 times a year that it gets used. Power and reset button will be on the bottom front corner. I have at this point about 2 months in the build but alot of that time has gone into making decisions on how I am going to proceed. The last big decision is what shade of blue to paint the desktop and out side of the computer case. The inside of the case is going to be white.

So far the case and desktop have been primed with Killz Paint.

I have use 1/2" Baltic birch for the computer case and have a 3/4" Birch desktop cut to 32" x 8'
the computer case is 37" x 27" OD and 11" deep ID

Wow! Nice carpentry work on your box. That looks really unique! :thumb: The birch looks really good imo.

Thanks, I have been taking my time on getting what I always wanted. The birch is great in that it is like 8 ply for 1/2".

It also helps when you have all the tools to be able to do this type of work ;)

Still have to get the glass top for this and put the lighting in place but that takes time to get it where you want it.

Any comments?

Nice Build, any plans to add push fans once you get the Glass top?

Rylah October 26, 2011 04:50 PM

I do not think I would be adding any push fans as temps are very stable sitting around 30 degrees all the time, depends if the temps go up but these fans are very quiet, so only time will tell.

The fans on the sides, 2 sets of 2 are intakes, and the fans on the rad's are exhaust 2 sets of 3.
No idea about the PSU side, but I imagine the 2x fans on the right side of the compartment are intakes, and the PSU is the exhaust.
