    Project - Alternate (Custom PC Desk Build)

    Project Alternate: PC in a desk scratch build & MODs

    Hi all,
    After what feels like a very long year I have decided to start work on my new desk build.
    The idea for this desk came to me when i was working on my last desk & at one point I almost started the project
    again, but I'm glad i didn't

    Most people liked the desk & I learned a great deal during the build.

    The Project Alternate design slightly changed month by month & I will show some of the other plans & explain why the changes was made.
    This time I'm hoping to outdo my last desk & hopefully help others in the process.

    The desk work is about to start, using mostly MDF, Perspex, clay, metal & glass I plan to build the desk in 3 parts,
    starting from the bottom, then middle followed by the top section.
    the tricky parts will be the sharp corners & angles on the edges.

    In making the desk in 3 parts it will allow for easy transport from my garden shed to my
    very small room/office.

    I plan to have the 2 reservoirs just under the top shelf so i can see the water flowing by

    have a couple of different layouts for the internal components,
    but want to wait until the top compartment is built so I can see IRL what looks & works best.

    For the specs, I'm upgrading from my trusty i5-2500k to a i7-5820K, due to the CPU upgread I will also be using the new ASUS X99 TUF
    motherboard & DDR4

    This time I will also go with 3 screens at 1440p if possible, or 1X 4K screen, so my HD7970s will also need upgrading to a R9-295x2.
