    Hi, I'm new here, so sorry for some mistakes and my english :D



    My PC was very noisy when I played games, so I was thinking more and more about creating watercooling rig, but it was rather dream. Few months ago I need a new desk and in the same time I saw L3P's projects (L3p desk, Cross by Redharbinger).. So I decided to make my own desk including computer with water cooling.


    SPONSORS


    [​IMG]

    With PSU V850 and 4x JetFlo 120 red fan.

    [​IMG]

    With EK-HD fittings and angle adapters.

    [​IMG]

    GTX770DC2OC

    [​IMG]

    With Alphacool radiators and few special fittings.

    Thank a lot to sponsors. I can't finis this project without these parts.


    I spent hours figuring out how to do it all. Next days I was making some sketches in Google Sketchup and after that and then I finally drew everything in AutoCAD.

    FIRST UPDATE

    After laser cutting and bending the "main" part of desk, I bring it home and test it little bit :D

    Everything started on this nice laser cutter
    [​IMG]

    And continues on this powder coater :)
    [​IMG]

    Finally at home!
    [​IMG]

    Testing some old MB and fans, everything fits as I wanted. :)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that I must do slot for MB. I used back part of old Eurocase..

    [​IMG]

    I cuted off all unnecessary parts

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then I resurfaced it.

    [​IMG]

    And test it into lasercutted part. :)

    out of curiosity, with your access to the laser cutter, why not cut your own mobo tray?

    otherwise looking good and will follow this one along :)

    Yes it's been done before and so has putting in water cooling, painting your case or cutting it up and putting a window in. Its no reason for any one to not bother doing a build log for it. To be honest its still a very cool idea and if I had access or knew people with Laser cutters or good at building desks I'd have my own.

    How do you go about getting sponsored by all the hardware companies and them providing parts for the build ?

    Fully agreed. I absolute loved the last desk-case I saw on here and would love to have my own. Combines the best of both worlds in my opinion.

    Looks really good.

    I think the reservoir setup would look much better if you put the cross over on the bottom instead of on the same side as the inlets.
