Not The First Desk with a Computer Inside, but Maybe the Coolest Looking – Full Build



I needed a computer upgrade for video editing, so I figured I’d go the full distance and build a new neat looking desk to put it in. I say desk, but it’s really more like a table to put the speakers and monitors on.
I don’t sit at it; I’m in a recliner in front of it with my feet up, relaxed and chilled for editing video for long hours in comfort and style.
Stand up desk? Are you kidding? I stand up enough without doing it while I’m doing something I can be doing in a lazy boy.
Typical video like this one can take two days to edit and after doing this for 10 years I’m not even going to start unless the conditions are perfect. And this is as close as I’ve come, so far.
Just in this one room there are several projects I’ve done in the past. See if you can spot them all.
Key Parts:
CPU – Ryzen 7 5800X
MB – ASUS TUF GAMING B550M-ZAKU
RAM – CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB
GPU – MSI GeForce RTX 2080
NVME DRIVES – 2 – Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 512GB – one for system, one for video editing.
The cpu, cooler, motherboard, ram and one of the m.2 drives are new. I already had the power supply, other m.2 drive and other hard drives plus the graphics card from the previous editing computer.
This thing runs Davinci Resolve and that’s pretty much it. I only turn it on when I need to edit video, so it’s off most of the time. I have absolutely zero concerns about heat – there’s great airflow through the case with that monster fan when it spins up, and it only spins up when a video is rendering.
