Ever wanted to build a PC into a desk but not known where to start? Well, in this project video I'll be showing you exactly how to build a unique folding desk PC that brings LOADS of practical benefits to the table. Enjoy!
The project resources can be found exclusively on Patreon at the moment, simply for ease on my part as I'm still setting up a store. You can sign up, download it, and then cancel if you wish - it's the same price as before:
Big thanks to the various manufacturers for sending their stuff over for the build...

How to build a DIY **DESK PC** step 1:- have money
Graham Webb

For those wondering about the wiring of the TTP223 switch - a PC power switch has two connectors (ground and some small voltage, 3.3 Volts on my PC). The circuit is 'active low', which means that when the two contacts are made, the switch operates by pulling the small voltage down to ground. The safe bet is to use a relay, but you don't need it. Solder pad A on the TTP223 so it goes to ground when the switch operates, and connect that to the 3.3V side of the PC switch. Connect the TTP223's ground to the other side of the power switch, and connect the TTP223 supply pin to the power pin of a spare onboard USB port. Since the USB provides 5V it means the output pin of the module sits at around 4V (0.7V higher than my switch) when not in use, so I added a diode facing the TTP223 between the switches 3.3V and the TTP223 output, just in case the motherboard doesn't like being pushed up to 4V. No relay, just three pieces of wire and 3 DuPont connectors.

Doesn't the elastic nature of the suspenders hinder the rotational movement of the components. Dont the fans need a solid grounding to spin at the most optimum speeds? I could be wrong but I was wondering about it Despite all that, awesome job 👍

Matt you and this project were amazing. I have seen many people design and present a building video for the project. You are by far the best I have ever seen. your studio is perfect the colors and project are a great match. Your workmanship is such high quality l don't think l could match it. There is much much more that can be said, l think i'll end this right here. Keep up the great work l really enjoy it.

you shouldnt hang hard drives .. they need to be hard mounted since they have moving parts and can cause serious issues if they vibrate freely

Another addition to make it fully foldable is drill a hook into the desk, take an old usb-c cut off the end and tie a string into a circle and superglue it into the usb c end plug the usb-c into the mouse and glue the keyboard to the desk ( if it’s usb-c too) sorry for long comment

If it’s not obvious you hang the mouse on the hook so you don’t have to bring it over from the wall

All gr8 BUTTTT.... With that beautiful window to the heart and the engine of your PC desk, and great lightning inside, I really want to see it all the time to have the super frictional look remain in my room, even after folding the table. So WHY IN THE WORLD you didn't use a central Acrylic table top or Glass table, instead of that ugly antique wood look? (OK I get it, you have wrong European ties... but welcome to 21 century, if it has occurred in your nick of the world). Well done as ever. You are a national treasure! 👌🙏

I don't like this build. It's too big. A normal desk and a desktop pc would take up less space. Building a table around a computer isn't always the best idea.

Good, especially if one can get all that hardware for nothing! If you shove a shop-bought tower in a shop bought table, in an air vented box & behind double-glazed glazing without a lot of this faff. Spring mounting is so easy to do in a computer tower too. The video is good but rather OTT, in my opinion.

This is an amazing build and you did a brilliant job at it, it looks absolutely beautiful, but there are a few things that aren't that big of a deal but still worth taking mind. 1: the watercooling loop goes from a hot gpu, to warm vrms, to an even hotter cpu then to the rad, now this will create higher temperatures 2: the hard drives NEED to Be solid mounted to a hard surface or the vibration will shorten their lifespan

Hey bud your projects are just awesome. Really inspired me to start a small project of my own. The only thing is your projects include so much of high level customization which a lot of us don't have. Eg 3d printers, carpenter tools, etc. Can you do videos where you don't need a lot of the fluff to do some of the DIYs. With that said I really admire the level of detail you go into. Specially keeping in mind the design and finishes of the projects.

Why did you put the CPU and gfx card in the same loop? You had two massive radiators? Surely two loops is much more efficient than one? That single and tiny monitor is so underwhelming.
