ULTIMATE 100″ Bedroom Gaming Battlestation!

ULTIMATE 100″ Bedroom Gaming Battlestation!

So the folks at origin wanted to sponsor a video featuring their
brand-new Genesis system. You can learn more about it at the link below
But in a nutshell, this latest version was just unveiled at CES and our config rocks an 18 core Extreme Edition
Dual tempered glass side panels. Dual water-cooled GTX 1080 TIs and four
radiators for cooling. Not bad for…$8881
Lordy! So a machine like this deserves nay!
A proportionally dank battle station to complement it. So with our middle school level woodworking skills
We set out to build a custom desk for the Genesis.
Let there be RGB light
♪ Intro music ♪
Now with this kind of power 4k gaming is well within our reach, but
plopping a 4k monitor on a table and calling it a battle station is not the LTT way
So we decided to use one of the Dell S718 QL 4k laser projectors that we reviewed recently
But opting for an ultra short throw projector
as your display
Will introduce some key constraints to a project like this
First we realized we would need a really
deep tabletop since not only with the projector itself be taking up a lot of key real estate
but if we ended up too close to our screen we were concerned we’d feel less like
A badass power user and more like a
tennis spectator
But finding a sufficiently deep and
wide desk at a reasonable price, Isn’t easy, or is it?
This sliding door from our bedroom set is 34 inches (86cm) deep 7 feet (2.1m) wide and
doesn’t have any pesky door like features like a knob hole so we picked up another one of them for 20 bucks and
Spent then another $20 on some semi-gloss black paint to complement our tower
The second thing about using a projector like this is that the image ends up being quite a bit higher than you would typically want
And we didn’t want to have to lean
Waaaay back in our chair
Linus: Just to see the browser search bar. The solution? a phone book on the chair!
I mean realistically it’s 2018. What else are you gonna use it for?
Actually, I’m just kidding. By cutting a recess in the desk and then hanging a dropped shelf we were actually able to get the top
of the projector flush with the desktop, which looks sick and
gets the screen down as low as it can be. To create our mounting system
We simply used some long bolts and a shelf from Ikea
Which could actually easily be replaced by a regular piece of wood to save a buck since you’ll never see it
Constraint number three. Where are we gonna put the tower?
Normally, we’d want to show off a box like this on top of the desk
But even with a short throw projector and a super wide table
we’d be risking cutting off the view of either the system tray or the start button and
Letting the Genesis sit on the floor is totally out of the question
so since our giant desk didn’t have any legs at this point and
Since any potential legs would have to be pretty beefy to be proportional
We decided to build a custom cabinet for the tower
That would double as a table leg so we went to Ikea and bought two alex cabinets for $80 a piece
one that we fully assembled and endowed with upside-down feet to rest the tabletop on and another that we
Completely butchered so that our towers good looks and hot air could shine and blow through
Finally we added some black anodized aluminum trim to visually unify our ragtag
Assortment of pieces not to mention to cover up the janky lines that came with freehand in the jigsaw
Which I guess brings us perfectly to the bloopers.
Let’s just say that building this desk was a
learning experience
for James
The first lesson was that you can tell if a door is hollow or not by how much it weighs and how cheap it is
and if you find yourself
accidentally in possession of a hollow door that you’re expecting to hang a 33 pound projector from
You can beef it up by ripping out the cardboard ballasts and inserting slabs of wood to basically act as like big reinforcing washers
Lesson number two, use molding that says wide is the material you’re trying to cover up. The walls of our Alex cabinets are three quarters
of an inch thick
But the trim we ended up with is only half an inch leaving a lot of exposed wood
And nothing is more awkward than exposed wood
Lesson number three, don’t use too much glue unless you want to find your finished desk ruined by hardened gorilla
glue bubbles that take the paint off when you cut them off
Finally lesson number four, a projector really looks a lot better on a purpose-built projector screen so to do this over we’d
Probably recommend that upgrade
Especially if you were trying to recreate this setup with a less bright projector
However, with all of that said, as a
Proof-of-concept this turned out more than okay
We put together a simple plan for how pretty much anyone can set up a giant,
comfortable, custom desk for just a few hundred bucks and
we have a
Bad-ass new addition to our new set. Not to mention our selection of off-hours leisure activities
Here at the office.
So big thanks to Origin for sponsoring this video. Their Genesis system absolutely chews through anything we can throw at it at 4k and
Looks great doing it the front i/o including ten gigabit USB 3.1
is discreetly hidden behind a sliding cover and the tempered glass side panels are easily swappable with tooless hinges and
swanky magnetic clasp. Of course if you’re into the all aluminum look Origin will paint or laser etch any
logo or custom design your heart desires and
Before we go we should probably also throw an honorable mention to Dell for providing the projector
Ergo Direct for providing this awesome chair that works really well with a
Nice tall screen and Nano Leaf for hooking us up with some brilliant decor
So thanks for watching guys if you dislike this video you can hit that button

  1. U guys wasting money only to enjoy unique…
    But there are people sorry, gamers like me who doesn't have minimum requirement Gaming PC. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

  2. Linus is so annoying im sorry, you're annoying in every video, you always have been your whole personality is annoying. Never subbed never will. Congrats on the successful video channel but you're not real with yourself or the people around you. Best of luck I'm out

  3. Thank you for the Captions!!

    -sincerely, a Deaf fan who watches most of LTT content with auto-CC among other actual CC'd content

  4. What's the refresh rate on a projector like that? I imagine it's not compatible with any Adaptable Sync technology.

    Edit: looked it up, it's 120hz.

  5. damn with that kind of money i could have used to buy all thing i need and get my house finished! That currency would be config to pesos!

  6. What about G sync tho? Wouldn't a setup like this work best with AMD since free-sync don't need a special module on the monitor?

    "And NOTHING is more awkward, then exposed wood"
    VSauce one at 1:54
    And the Pewdiepie one at 2:26
    those got me

  9. HAHAHAHAHA they saw Linus diss there customer service so they sponsored him to make there image better HAHAHAHA. Iโ€™m dying

  10. So basically I need to go to college and study Computer Engineering for 4 years… Then Learn carpentry for two… Then be a millionaire… To have a battlestation. And a system worth 9 grand

  12. Found a dope portable projector here! ๐Ÿ”ฅ https://lowkeyneed.com/collections/frontpage/products/premium-mini-movie-projector-for-smart-phones

  13. dude…after watching how many of your videos….you really need to stop reaching and touching your phone….you do it in every single video…just leave it alone when recording??

  14. The ultimate version of this, would be to have a built in pc desk like the one Linus' dad helped him make, with the projector built in as well. THAT would be dope AF ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. You got ripped off when you made this video. There were computers at the time running way faster speeds and had way better processing power than the computer you showcased here, for only 5 thousand.

    But then again it was sponsored, so my bad.
