My System Specs

Default Custom monitor stand / light entertainment system

Build is for downloading movies and tv shows. Browsing the world wide web. Face booking/lame Facebook games. Email. Light gaming Etc etc.

So the story goes like this... my young son who is into everything he can get his hands on broke our asus laptop again. It may survive one more repair and if it does he'll not have access to it again. I built my missus the following with him in mind.

AMD A8 6600
Asus f285-m mobo
Corsair 1866mhz ram
h60 Corsair water cooler
Case donated by Soullessone21



The Stand

1' threaded steel sch40 pipe. Yes the same stuff as the gas lines run to your furnace and hotwater tank.
The power bar will go away once I get a longer power cord for the monitor Brain is donating that to me at a later date.





Monitor is the Asus VE228H
Stand arm is the Artic Z1... it slides over the 1' perfectly if ya pull out the plastic thingy.


The closed nipple 90 closest to the couch is hand tight only so it will swing... everything else is wrenched and I have tested this thing with my own weight. The shelf holding the computer on the wall also supports my weight and the case will be anchored to the shelf with smaller L brackets at a later date.

Cheers.

Excellent idea! Gas pipes are very strong.

Anyone who has kids knows... If a truck can hit it you may stand a chance! :)
