Mount a monitor panel on the side of a casing?
 
Dear all,

I am not really into case modding but figured that my query would be best answered here.

I am contemplating a desktop build for my personal usage but would really love to mount a LCD to the side of a desktop to save space, not unlike http://img.hexus.net/v2/news/chieftec/L-type-01.jpg but it seems that this chassis has been discontinued.

Was wondering if any kind soul here can point me along in the right direction ...

Many thanks in advance!

Can be done but most likely wont be cheap. If you want the easy way out can buy those wall mounts for monitors with VESA mounting and instead of the wall, mount it onto your side panel loh. But you must make sure your side panel can take the weight of your monitor, or you'll have to construct some weight bearing columns on your side panel.

I am exactly thinking of the intermediary wall mount since there needs to be some degree of freedom to adjust for the ergonomics of the monitor!

Do you think the mod-shops in SLS will be able to do so?

Not that i know of. UVnium has closed down their physical store at SLS so thats out. What monitor(s) are you planning to mount and what casing and side panel are you using? I might be interested to do it :D

Buy vesa wall mount, screws and nuts...

Buy or borrow a drill and do yourself...

Use masking tape to mock up your drill holes in the side panel

Vesa mount get at jiaying sls

I would do this only if you are using an all steel case and a light monitor

aluminum side panel would probably buckle

Steel side panel will need to sturdy to begin with... You can try to drill more screw holes in the sidepanel to reinforce

Worse case you will need to reinforce the side panel and or find a way to weigh down the case..

Another concept would be to use an L brace on the case but it will mean you need to screw to the table... This would ensure case wont topple over...

I am still researching my build since I have been out of touch for a tad too long..

for eg.. I did not think of the problem mentioned, that alu side panel will buckle...
