Dark D3sk​

Hey so this is my first scratch build i am doing. So most of you have seen my old build and I thought to myself well this is nice and everything but it look generic to most of the computer cases these days so I thought to myself that I am going to build myself a new case for my computer. I was original inspired by Peter and his L3p D3sk, so that what I am planning to build, A desk like his but I wanted it to be better (as in looks) so I opened up Google Sketch up and started making the first designs in there and this is what I came up with

Now I have got started with the build by getting the materials and bending the bay for the desk

Nice!!!
A desk mod! Finally, I really look forward to seeing the outcome of this.
I have been really thinking about doing one of these, they are totally badass when done right.

Wow! Looking really good, your steel work looks awesome (i am a fitter/welder and dont say that lightly) but really you are well on your way to having a desk setup just like the one you posted.

i will look forward to your updates - keep up the good work!

Hi !

Awesome mod there ! I'd personally love to see more of this "case", like the ways the IOPorts show, the lighting, the motherboard through the glass, etc !

Great work ! :thumbup:

This computer integrated-desk is a very smart idea. You could even sell it in small series, IMHO.

l3p, the guy who made his inspiration, actually opened up a company and will soon start selling these desks. The company is called Red Harbinger, the desk 'Cross'.

I was also thinking about building me such a desk, but sadly I don't have enough space and the watercooling equipment was really expensive - I decided to do something else with a smaller WC loop ;)
But you are doing a great job!
