I'd just sit there and stare at that beauty. Excellent work!

Cheers man! The photo's are a bit out of date, but no massive differences to what it looks like now :)

I noticed you were not pleased with the ram lighting, I was questioning wether I should but them as I'm not a fan of the pulsing lights especially if they're not pulsing in sync. You may already know by now as this is quite an old post but there is some Corsair software called link which enables you to set it to a static mode. This video talk about it if you want to know more https://youtu.be/O8tqOZd4Gws

Other than that this is a very nice build love the black and white theme.

when you went to ikea to get this desk did you get to choose how what colors you wanted i want to do a contrast black drawers white table top is that possible?

Evilernut08 submitter 21 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Yes you buy each bit separate, so the draws, top and stand. Optionally the cable rack too. Hope this helps.

Cheers man! It's an Ikea Linnamon / Alex desk. I have some rgb leds at the back. For extra info I have a teknet mechanical keyboard, teknet extra large mouse pad and teknet mouse. I have also got a fabric gt omega, I prefer fabric to leather. Good luck with your build!

Can you give us the links to your desk please

Evilernut08 submitter 21 Builds 1 point 22 months ago

I can't get a link, sorry. I got it by going to IKEA and bought the Alex Linnamon Desk with the pole support (you need it for support) with the 2 draw units. cost about £110 total.
