Want to build a superpowered 4K gaming PC in your room but don’t have the space? One Redditor decided to solve two problems at once by building one of the best-looking gaming PCs ever made inside his desk.
The top comment in the resulting thread does a good job of summing up this guy’s masterpiece:
What’s the point of building a sexy gaming PC if you’re not going to invest in great tech specs? Here’s what the tech specs on MegaDeblow’s rig looks like:
CPU – i7-5820k
MB – ASUS Sabertooth X99
RAM – 32GB Avexir Blitz 1.1 (DDR4)
GPU – ASUS R9-295×2
PSU – Cooler Master: V1200 Platinum
Fans – Cooler Master: Jet flow 120’s & Cooler Master Silencio FP120 PWM
HDs – Wester Digital Green 6TB – Barracudas x2 2TB – Wester Digital Green 1TB
SSDs – 2X Samsung EVO850s 250GB
KB – CM Storm quickfire xti
Mouse – CM Storm Reaper
RADS – 2x Phobya G-Changer 360 RADs V.2
RES – 2x Phobya 450 reservoirs
CPU WB – Alphacool NexXxoS XP³ Light
Pump – 2x Alphacool VPP655
GPU WB – Alphacool NexXxoS GPX
Now, before we proceed, we should tell you that Deblow isn’t just your average PC master race gamer – he’s a professional case builder and modder. He has experience with this type of work and has created many masterful creations in the past.
So don’t feel bad for your PC looking like crap next to his.
The rig relies on a custom-designed desk that was made from mostly MDF.
The desk “was designed with the hope it would look as good OFF as it would on, so it was all about shapes & natural light.”
Since Deblow doesn’t have a lot of natural light in his room, his desk aimed to capitalize on what little natural light he has while also giving him an easy way to maximize space and store his clutter.
One of the first comments in the Reddit thread asked Deblow how much the rig cost. The answer? Probably more than you were expecting (or at least more than I was expecting, not having built something like this before):
That’s about $7000 USD and $9000 CAD or $9000 AUD.
Videos of the rig can be seen here at MegaDeblow’s YouTube channel– and believe me, this thing looks even better in videos than it does in pictures.
