Windows 7: Big Case Small Desk

Lollies, Looking more closely at your desk it appears you may have another option. The trim hanging down from the cabinets I think is to hide a concealed light? This needs to be looked at closely but it should be just inexpensive trim molding. You can carefully pull this off with a putty knife under each brad holding it in place then save that piece to re-install later. Buy another piece of molding and paint it after trimming short to allow the system to slide under......as long as you have some room for the top fan to exhaust?? Just thinking ! Molding could run $5-7 dollars some paint and some brads and your done !

It's a lovely rig. I'f certainly want it up on the desk. I have mine like that and I get less dust problems than on the floor.
If you had it on the left side of the desk or on a cabinet/stand level with the desk, it would keep the light glare from the window off of your screen

Don't think I missed this question, but is there a way to reposition or move the desk?

OK, let me take a different approach to this problem. == You have some cabinets above the desk. Put the computer in one on the end and make some air holes in the cabinet and you have the problem solved. Thank you, I accept VISA, Mastercard and Paypal.

Unfortunately not, the desk is built in.

I'll look into it but I don't think it will fit into the cabinet but even if it did, where would I make air holes? Its a creative idea but modifying my rooms furniture may result in my death.

My last build I had off to the left side of the desk on a little shoe rack I took apart and rebuild. I think I might need to do that again since it will not fit on the desk.





Any ideas?

Thanks

I don't know how handy your are with wood working tools or if you need all your desk drawers but I would probably remove all of the drawers on the left hand side, you could carefully remove the faces and tracks. If their isn't a boottom cut one and lay it in place and put the case in there. Then get a small file cabnet for the left side if needed, but it appears you have a lot of storage above.

All in all though the suggested Amazon.com: Kantek Mobile CPU Stand, CS200B, Black: Electronics Seems to be the cheapest and easiest way to go

Excellent suggestion. If this were my setup I would do just that.
