Ok, whilst I've been drained, the wife's been painting like a busy bee (I think secretly she likes painting), I've done some work tonight too and it's looking good, now we're on the fun part. Check it out....

Coat number 1
Image

Shelf area for headphones etc... when not in use.
Image

The front door, I think she's only done one side at the mo.
Image

Tonight I did the chiseling and got these ready, didn't take long, MDF is easy to do this to.
Image

Needed another coat.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Quick test to see what it's gonna look like.
Image

I'd forgotten the feeling of opening a box of goodies from scan...
Image

The final gray coat has only just tonight gone on after I did the chiseling so I can't do anything else now
Image

Pleased with the finish so far...

Well, aside from a few finishing touches it's done! Hope you've enjoyed following this as much as I've enjoyed building it (sad as it may seem it was quite fun) Tempratures inside the PC are CPU ~19 and GFX ~25, they get to about 30 and 50 under load which is well within acceptable ranges so very happy with that.

Click on the pictures to make them expand.

Clearance on each side is about 1-2mm
P1040602.jpg

Picture of inside showing fan flow directions
P1040603.jpg

Fan controllers, all on minimum for now which slows them right down.
P1040604.jpg

Magnetic clasp for keeping the door closed, also gives it a nice noise when you shut it.
P1040605.jpg

Yes, it's that fucking CPU cooler again...
P1040607.jpg

Next up... project CHAIR!

P1040608.jpg

I'm going to make it higher and change how it looks!

Haha, it did genuinely help with contrast too last night, but mainly, it looks awesome. Closer to the wall the better apparently.

Awesome, I'll put some up too of a little something extra I'm building RE the monitor stand (sadly I can't now order the monitors through work and avoid VAT, so it'll be delayed). I can't wait to see the christmas lights fix!

Impressed with mine :)

, one of the modes (you'll guess which) will never be used, ever! But loads of options for £8.

To be honest, they'll be on solid white all the time, maybe purple when I play saints row :D

Only downside is the wire out the side and that there are only 3 buttons to control the lights. Colour. Speed. Mode. Getting to one you want if you change them is a case of keep pressing an unknown number of times to get back to where you were again!!

I love it and am now jealous! I really like the blue and purple as well as the white!

The animation modes are just bonkers!

Can't you hide the wire? I've taped it down on mine so it goes back on itself.

Yeah I can hide it behind the screen actually. The modes- there are so many... I can literally have it slowly going darker, slowly lighter.... Pumping Prince Purple Rain out now on the headhpones - fucking screen is pulsing purple too! Guitaaar solo!!!!

I got a (nice) surprise today when Scan bloody delivered on a Sunday?! So everything but speakers is now sorted.... some pictures to show how things are laid out...

Image

Image

I've managed to hide the wires thanks to the stand having holders for them, mounted my £2 mic on the top :D

Image

I'm pretty chuffed with this, I've made a nice "cartridge" for the back of the drawer, curved to match things, which means that the clamp for the stand will fit and not damage the desk, it's also a nice wee shelf for my wallet. My curves are a bit better now I've done a few.

Image

Meg does seem to sit here, a lot.

Image

Next job, a Green Shelf above those screens with some speakers on, I don't think I'll be building the speakers myself, after research it just turned out to be too bloody expensive. Like close to £100 per speaker.

I've been building around my new case for a few weeks now, thought others might like to see...
DeskFront.JPG

I've managed with some clever airflow (there's a fan behind that right shelf funnelling air into the case) to keep temps at <30 cpu <45gfx when idle, and both below 65 when hammering things. The little hole on the left is so I can switch the PSU off without removing the shelving which will make cleaning the case easy. I can remove the side panel without moving the shelves out.
DeskAirflow.JPG

So wires still hidden when looked at from afar, but fancy new computer on show :) Shelve units can just be lifted out when required.
P1070147.JPG

Lots of storage space for computer related guff.
P1070148.JPG

Don't think I'll ever get a case with hard drive cages again, or one without a "basement"
P1070149.JPG

Second external fan just pushing the air away from the back of the case.
P1070150.JPG

All fans on minimum speed so is a very quiet machine, the 2 in the front of the case actually don't come on until the temps hit 50 so when you arn't using the PC, you can't hear it anymore :)

I would personally need more leg space but wood-work-wise very good considering its all self-taught.

Thanks! It really is a case of lots of measuring, testing, cutting then taking every bit you do and checking it twice over. Soon as I rush I fuck it up.

Leg space isn't too bad, I've taken to putting my toes under the PC since this one is quite high compared to the last.

I'm going to make some changes to the back of the desk next where the monitors hook on, I'll take some pictures of before, during and after the process.
