Mega Deblow - Desk Build


Hi everyone,

My name is Rob, I'm new to forum posting in general so i hope i can make a good job of this,
my first ever build/Log attempt.

I had some ideas that i put to paper, but most of the ideas were changed over time as i encountered problems,
I will add some pictures of the design on the forum, Not the best artwork i admit, so i hope they make some sense.

For most of the build i used my phone to take the pictures for reference,
as half my project was in the shed and the other half was in the house and as i have a broken leg it was very
hard to move around with the parts to check they were correct.


I will add as much info as possible, if i miss anything please just ask and i will do my best to answer asap.


Reason for build -
- More desktop space (get shut of the MASSIVE UFO case)
- Create better airflow
- Make more space for water cooling parts
- Have something different & something to do in my spare time

I also want to try make the desk as easy to dismantle as possible, so far i have managed to keep the PC its self contained in a easy to remove 930mm X 560mm box.
edit - now 940mm x560mm



My Build Items Are -

CPU - i5 2500k @4.6
MB - Gigabyte G1 Sniper 3
RAM - Avexir Core Extreme Green Series 8GB DDR3 2133MHz
GPU - Asus Matrix 7970 platinum - Crossfire
HD's - 2X Seagate Barracuda = 6TB, OCZ Vertex 3 =120gb, OCZ Agility 3 =64gb, WD Green =2TB
PSU - CoolerMaster v1000
EK supreme CPU block 1155 Socket
XSPC 1/2 ID 3/4 OD Tubing UV Green
Phobya Balancer 450 Reservoir
NZXT Fan Controller x2
12x CoolerMaster jet flow Fans
4x CoolerMaster fans
Sharkoon Quad Cathode Kit
LED Strips x Lots
EK-fc970 Matrix Full Cover water block x2
EK-CoolStream RAD XTX (360) x2
EK-D5 Vario X-TOP High-Performance pump

Thanks for looking,




A BIG thank you to EK Water Blocks and Cooler Master/CM-Storm for their support.

The reason i went for L shape glass is that i wanted to be able to cover the glass 100% with ease when needed in order to block light and protect.

The start of the build, mostly putting ideas in to action to see how things work out
some photos will be missing, as most the photos i took in the shed was for my own reference and less care was taken










Prototype 1,

Had to use a hair dryer on the wrap before fitting as it was creased when i received it


Black paint for the grooves that will be holding the glass top in place, diceded to paint it just in case it was too hard to wrap when the time came







LED strips cut ready to fit the the 4 bottom shelf's, using 5050 strip with remote.

Now working on the final build, most of the desk is just how i want it but i will need to add more room for a 2nd RAD and re-position a couple of things.
i will also be adding 3 more switches to control the UV/LED's and adding a pullout for a second keyboard or my pad and phone.

after not being able to find the triple RAD guards i wanted to use i have decided to try make my own, more than likely from black perspex.

if everything goes to plan (finger crossed) i should have the desk up and running in 4 to 6 weeks .

My black perspex has arrived so i can start having a play, was wanting to use it for the triple RAD grills and possibly the Matrix LED.
