The Gentlemans' Gaming Desk (GG Desk)

Hello everyone!

I can't believe this day arrived finally, I was working on this concept since october 2019, but since then we've been through a lot (Caughs* 2020 Caughs again*), and then I had my own bumpy road in 2021 and then a bigger bump in 2022, but seems like 2023 is a good year, so I hope ya'll are doing great!! and lets get into it.

I've been inspired by many people who build PCs into desks, I've seen many on forums and on youtube too, so I thought to myself why don't I do it as well?

So I started with V1 which is based on the MICKE table, and so I started with some angled aluminum bars, jig saw cuts, hole saw cuts, some 3D printed parts, and no cable management, Zero thoughts went into it since all of what I did was brand new to me. V1 survived until one month ago, RIP, might be a dead PSU or Motherboard, I don't know for now will replace it anyways.

Then in February 2021 I started with V2, now armed with better skills I managed to do something miles better than V1, but while I did enjoy V2 far more, I still had to do more to make it feel more... hmmm.. OEM ? if that makes any sense.

So between Feb 2021 to Probably Around Dec 2022 I was just imagining different iterations, I even made up one version in my mind that was good enough to be named V3 since I spent so much time thinking about it, this is why I decided to number this current one as V4.

Introducing The Gentleman Gaming Desk

I built this first V4 as a proof of theory, I wanted something that can be assembled countless times and not think about the degrading MDF wood or the screws that make holes oversized in time.

also, I wanted something that will support any type of PSU be it fully modular or not just like in this build, Also I wanted to minimize waste so I made the SSD holders from the wasted parts of the MDF I used, the Backplate and Partition part is made from Aluminum Sheets, bent and powder coated by a third party but it was my design, the bottom of the drawer was done at home on my CNC router and the 3D parts were printed on my CR6-SE.

The parts I used here are taken from another PC I've built before ( Dr.Zaber Sentry 2.0 ) but I will do another desk build which will be my daily driver that will be based on AM4 Platform, Ryzen 5700G, and an RTX 3060Ti, I never wanted to make something super beefy, but I don't want a slow poke either ;)

I might add something in the middle next to the fans, I still don't know what exactly, maybe a place to store a wireless num-pad or something of that sort.

==========================

I will add benchmark scores and temps at a later date so keep checking this page for updates.
