I still can't get over how insane this is. Best I've ever seen, if I win the lottery I'm flying you out here to build me one. Anyway one question, the water cooling 'blocks' on the HDDs are just for show essentially as they have such little contact area (horizontal to vertical) they can't really have any practical use?

Thanks!
If i win the lottery this week You'll get this one for free

The waterblocks for the HDD's certainly make a difference.
Since the fans inside the desk only run on 5V 600rpm i don't have much airflow.
It's also not even needed for the hardware, though the hdd's did reach temperatures of 45-50 degrees. Also that's not a problem at all.
The blocks are for the looks, but the temperatures did go to 30-35 degrees just because they cool one side of the hdd.

Well, it's been a truly indescribable modding year for me, and I wanted to close out this tremendous honor by thanking the following sponsors, friends and fans.
In case you missed it (pun intended), I somehow managed to scrape by extremely talented competition and pull some awards in the process.
It still makes me so proud, as the competition was refined and full of talent!

Bit-Tech Mod Of The Year and Guru3D Rig Of The Year
Other achievements

As a bonus to the supportive community, I am sharing some unseen photos of the finished project.




After submitting this post, I will be focusing on my current casemod and company, Red Harbinger.
I have met some incredible people along the way with the L3p D3sk.
I know a lot of you were very interested in building or buying the L3p D3sk, and I am happy to announce we will be producing it for sale; the manufacture prototypes are being created as I type this final message.
As a founding member of Red Harbinger Inc., you can expect to see current and future builds (including the L3p D3sk) for actual purchase.
Again, thanks for all your support and feedback; I could not have done it without the strong support of the community!

All the readers, supporters and voters from all the buildlogs all over the world.
Fans for all the emails and compliments coming in from every part of the planet!
I can't express what it really means to have so many fans interested in my design!
And off course all people who I might forgot to thank in person!

Also not to forget the sponsors who made this all possible.








Thanks again for being an integral part of this process.

Sorry for pulling this thread out of the dust .. : )

Wanted to let you guys know 'L3p D3sk' is still alive.
After 3 years not changing anything it was time for an upgrade, re-install and clean-up.
Here's a little log about it
