and so I traded it for this:



I am new here, so wanted to see if there is an interest in a build log in the CaseLabs TX10-D here. I already have some work done in it (~4 weeks or so) and the build is a partially sponsored one. Cheers!

Turn it sideways and mount in on cinder blocks, boom it is a desk.

Haha, yes the thing is quite massive. As it is, it stands at 1.3 meters tall and well over half a meter wide and deep. Now that I know at least one person is interested in a build log, I will create one in here too :)

At the risk of sounding like a bad "In Soviet Russia.." joke, you can fit your desk on this, not the case on the desk. Just put a piece of wood on top of the case and you now have a standing desk :)

Seriously though, you aren't fitting this under any standard desk. There is a reason the thing is on wheels, even with a ~100% aluminum construction the empty case weighs more than 90 lbs with the extended top and pedestal on- probably over a 100 lbs too. It can house 2 separate rigs in it no problem so it will be 200+ lbs by the time everything is in.

Yeah but can the case itself run Crysis?
