i have been modding for awhile now and just won bronze with Corsairs pc domination competition.

i have decided to say thank you to corsair and build a obsidian style desk, it might sound like im creeping, but i do think they make quailty products and if i could have my whole computer made by corsair i would.


well it has taken me along time to get it right, here is my 1st design but it wasnt suitable as like me not many people have room for large desks so it needs to be compact.




now im getting somewhere




this looks alot better




and now with colour




I would like to know you opinions of the desk and always like feedback so get typing and let me know what you think



ok thats over with now the technical stuff.


asus z87 pro motherborad

i7 4770k processor

Corsair H100i with link and lighting kit

Gigabyte gtx 670

Corsair Dominator Platinum

Corsair RM750 power supply

samsung 256 pro ssd


plus Accessories to follow once i have worked out my budget


now most of the build will be wood apart from a few items

been working hard over the last couple off days its starting to take form.

had spent alot off time working out placing for motherboard and h100i, due to the size off the desk 1100x545mm because it needs to fit in a alcove so everything needs to be compact and i wanted it symmetrical.










starting to take shape now had to adjust the center platform so i could ge a decent angle




along way to go to finish motherboard





well thats it for this update and keep the comments coming and keep viewing

hi guys here is another update decided to rearrange the backpanel i think it looks better




now a couple of pictures on the centre plinth






started the bracket for the h100i





backpanel again looking alot better




also cut down the power switch from a 650d nand now its also fitted




now with the fan filter bracket




this is a better view of how the h100i will be hidden




couldn't do what i wanted to as the hoses are to rigid, so had to raise the h100i up so the hoses wasn't kinked

first of all guys this goes out to all the 650d owners, can someone give me the dimensions for the hard drive cage and the front I/O Panel?


thank you and now the interesting part lol


i would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Corsair for supplying me Two 650d front panels for my desk build as being disabled its very hard to finance this build, so once again thank you corsair for your support and your quality products.




the obsidian range of cases have got to be the best looking cases on the market




time to start on the front and see how things go






sorry got a little carried away and forgot to take pictures while i was going












it has not been a good day all i have been doing is sanding, sanding and more sanding lol


now with the the control panel and cover in just need the dimensions so i can build the boxing for it.




now wait for it the other side lol




who likes my power supply,just working out the positioning of it lol




hope you enjoyed this update and keep watching

Some very nice work there, 1 question, how did you get in contact with corsair? did you just Facebook them or send an email? I have been trying for a while.

It is good to see that Corsair are willing to appreciate your loyalty to their brand as you are one of the few builders working in traditional ways in a home environment with traditional tools, and producing fantastic work.


Keep up the good work. Cant wait to see the finished build.
