Pc in a desk?

So I was thinking about a new project. Building a pc desk, with the pc in a vertical mounted area. So like, i would have a pull out rack to hold the pc, and it would be vented and be able to hold my computer components. I dont know much about server racks, but i was thinking about using sliders for the pull out "inside case" so that way i can pull it out for quick upgrades or swaps. Any recommendations? or would just a server box work itself?

Would you put an existing PC with case inside or would the desk act as the case. You could use simple drawer sliders.

 

You have to think about cable management too as you would nerd slack or some sort of slot so you can slide then without pulling anything out.

it would be the desk acts as the case. drawer sliders wouldnt be a problem i dont think. i would probably have a power strip inside with the parts so only that has to give slack

Well you have to think about your mouse keyboard monitor etc. It would be a pretty easy build but would need a hefty desk to support the weight
