Hi there

I'm quite new to this forum, but since they liked my build at some Dutch hardware sites, i wanted to post it here too.

Since im already busy with this project for 3 months now, here are all the pics in a few posts.

Started with an Aluminium plate of 1850x990x3





Plates for the mainboard tray, hdd tray, pump/res tray and cable plate







The bearer ring to hold my desk




Been to an other company to make a logo




And back to welding








Plasmacutter to make some cable holes




End of the first long day


Creating a logo (was just a try, worked out well)





Made some holes for the lcd's for the in and outgoing water temperature, and for the logo



Had to make some changes to let my knees fit



Fitting the trays with sound isolation under it.





I love packages !



Thought the buttons would the same, gonna change for 2 big one's now.



Sound isolating for under my trays.



My best friend welding



Holes for the Bitspower fanguards
Both sides will have 3x 120mm Scythe Gentle Typhoons 1450 rpm op 5V
Underground will be 9x 120mm Scythe Gentle Typhoons 1450 rpm op 12V @ the 1080 radiator





Thats me !









"Rough" work is done







A Bitspower Black Sparkle Ashtray





So brought the d3sk back home

















Gonna use the backplate of an old lianli. (Thanks brother in law !)





Fitting, measuring and hanging





The battlefield.













Just playing around







New toy arrived



Fitting and measuring, pff



Forgot a hole



So made it bigger



Mess outside



Made 2 extra 120mm fan holes in the cable-space, cause i decided my psu will come there too.
And made the hole for the lianli backplate.





Bitspower !





And building everything back for the hole picture

Hiding cables, what a nasty job.



Scythe fanguards, maybe temporary



Need sata ?



Topview





Getting tired when i see this again



Filled up !





Youtube - Filling it up

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfRiu3UnKTA

Hiding Sata(n) !









And lift of



Testrun 1





Temperatures are better then in my Corsair 800D



Now first some rest behind my d3sk, before it goes to the powdercoater









Found a nice connector for the Bulgin power and reset button to be disconnected easily.







Now that they will be above my desk, i wont be to lazy to start working again on the inside of the desk













That's me !





Done for today :P

Now this is seriously cool, I've been thinking about doing a big desk mod for a couple of years with water cooling. This is looking really, really good. Looking forward to watching this develop.

The problem I've seen with most desk mods, as good as they are , they always seem to be let down by messy wiring. +rep

can't wait to see more.

it's looking so nice.
I like the idea of hiding the tubes in the rear and add their connectors to the middle plate.

Jesus christ, this is amazing work. I love the reservoir the most actually, the external rad under your floor has made me reconsider some ideas I have. Great work! The quality of finish on your metalwork is great.
