Desk PC questions

I am thinking of building a desk PC. Does anyone have any experience building one? I am open to suggestions. What is the best way of building one? What would I need? (wood, glass, etc.) What about cooling? And, is it even worth it?

Would plexiglass work? If not, what type of glass? I may consider doing liquid cooling and having the radiator outside.

I would recommend just buying a used tempered glass top from a table, etc to use as the top

Since normal glass will scratch and you can't cut tempered glass

So unless you have some money to drop its not recommended to try to go custom glass tops

I think you're right, I'd get the top first, then build the desk.

I have experience in rage quitting headphones throwing. More likely to break the headphones than the glass.

I second this.
