Default L3p D3sk Case Mod: Not Your Average Computer Desk


Remember the totally kick-***, Light Cycle-inspired scratch PC mod by veteran modder Boddaker (aka Brian Carter) that was featured on our site recently? Called TRON Lightcycle PC, Boddaker’s entry for Cooler Master’s annual case mod competition (scratch build category) is currently the third most voted case mod in contention.

As of now, the top spot belongs to the L3p D3sk by a 30-year-old Dutch guy named Peter. The rig is housed inside a desk, effectively making it an “all-in-one desk”, as Peter likes to call it.

Completely made of aluminium and glass, the water-cooled L3p D3sk boasts the following specs:
  • Intel Core i7 980X @ 4.5 Ghz
  • Corsair Dominator GT 6GB DDR3-2000 CL7 (Elpida) @ 2000 7-7-7-20-1T
  • ASUS Rampage III Extreme
  • ASUS Xense + Sennheiser Xense
  • Highpoint RocketRAID 3560 24x SATA-300 2 GB
  • Bigfoot Networks™ Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card
  • 1x Intel 510 120Gb
  • 3x Corsair F60 raid0
  • 6x Hitachi Deskstar 7K2000 12TB raid5
  • 2x Optiarc AD-7241S-0B
  • Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W
  • Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 700W
  • Dell U2711 27″ IPS
  • 2 x Dell 1703 17″ portrait
  • Logitech Illuminated keyboard
  • Mionix Naos 5000
  • Mionix Alioth 400

Even though it took Peter the best part of an year to put everything together, he completed most of the work during a three-week vacation. For someone avowedly new to the case modding scene, it's a tremenedous achievement. If you want, you can help Peter conquer the scratch build category of the CM 2011 Case Mod Competition by voting for his case mod here.
