    Hello, :)

    My name is Entycnu and ive been working on a desk mod since may and im finally at the stage where my computer is actually in my desk and working. I don't have any pictures from the first start, but i have some of its 'beta' stage.

    Basically, i have the motherboard in the top with the parts, in the bottom is all the wires and such. The window is made of Glass i had it custom made for about $20 AUD. Here are afew pictures:

    I have a Logitech G15 and G5. I love both, but the ones I have aren't made any more (earlier versions).

    Interesting desk mod.

    That's better. If i was you, i'd:

    - Cable Manage
    - Swap the HD for a SATA one
    - Turn the rear 120mm round, exhaust.
    - Run the CPU 8pin under the tray
    - Paint the insides of the desk black to match the 'case'

    Gigabyte mouse looks like a monster but I have doubts about Thermaltake's gaming peripherals.

    If your mobo ever dies, fancy selling me the cooling components?

    lol I broke the stock cooling on mine ages ago.

    Nice mod man, although I still prefer moonpigs one :D

    Mostly due to the hardware he has.


    By the way can you route the mobo 4/8 pin cable under the motherboard?

    if it feels to short to do it, plug it in before screwing down the mobo, works a treat!

    If you get that stuff, then you beat moonpig!

    He'll have to step up his game.

    But he's to busy trying to send me pictures of coffee all the time :laugh:



    Also cheers about the cooling, I've searched high and low for somewhere to smply buy them buy can't even emailed Asus and they replied " we don't actually have any, lulz!" ( may as well have)

    Some monies sent to your paypal, or I tend to have lots of spare fans/heatsinks/wires/cathodes if you want to trade.

    I'd make it myself personally, but you could probably get 100 for the desk with some skillful selling.

    Also remember I'm only after the motherboard cooling, my cpu cooler is better than that noctua so won't be needing it XD

    D-tek fuzion v2 for the cpu block, not the best but it's good and not to expensive.
