Installed lift wiring with a quick connect so i can take the top off for moving.
Front panel is secured in place along with lift and power switch
wired up on the inside
cant even see it from in front of desk
haha, Computer Science Major. Software Engineer by trade. Game design on the side. But i just like to build things. go karts mini bikes, robots (at least try) i spend 80% of my life in front of a pc so might as well have an awesome desk. I've been thinking about making one for years. And my current motherboard cpu are like 7 years old. So when it was time for upgrade I started looking at cases for about a month or so. then decided $100 case? or a $3000 desk that is a case
Actually i have no idea how much i've spent so far. Amazon is loving me this year. PC upgrade parts ~1k, wood for desk...soo expensive. about $180, lift was $50, glass was $25. then a ton of misc wires. left over plexiglass and a ton of fasteners that i didn't have....i'm thinking all the parts combined is about 3k? give or take a hundred or so. But thats mostly because i purchased a 3080 ti end of last year. that was expensive. half the total cost of this thing.
Okay i think for the most part it's done. Had the AC desk power short open. had to run power cable over side of desk to continue testing. Will order another one and replace this week. But here you go. mostly done. Image without glass installed. I will clean up new location and take another final image this week. Maybe a showcase video if i have time.
Thanks for viewing guys.
p.s. this thing screams, like a jet taking off. And it's a fast pc too. RGB does make a pc fast
Oh yah super happy. Not as happy as i was making it though? the thrill of the build i guess. Or knowing i have something to build. Maybe I sell this and make another? I do have plans for a small touch screen game box for my kid. I have left over wood and my old pc
Crazy kart would benefit from a lathe and a mill I think if i did finish, it would explode in my lap. But my garage has tons of spare room now that i'm done with this desk! So you never know
