The Catastrophe

What a catastrophe this build has been for my wallet, hence the name. It started with a regular tower PC and then morphed into wanting a new desk but not having anywhere to put the PC so I decided to build it into my desk and make it the centrepiece. I used a bunch of IKEA boxes to make the supports for my desk so I took one of them and cut holes in it until everything fit in. For the box I made my computer in I made a custom front panel with a glass window with a LIFX RGB light strip around it allowing me to colour it any way I like. I had to float the GPU above the motherboard otherwise there wouldn't have been room. Fun stuff!
