    Must be a real pain when upgrading hardware like the CPU, graphics card or motherboard. Still wicked though, was sitting in awe for about 5mins in admiration.

    ya I have a very similar monitor setup, what sucks about have one large monitor landscape and two side monitors has portrait is that one (if he happens to be running AMD Radeon cards) eyefinity doesnt work >.< at least I havent been able to get it to work and stupid Cyberlink Power DVD still wont open when it detects a monitor in portrait mode which is just soooo stupid.

    Anyhow love the looks it makes but must be pretty distracting at night but then again when hes using the computer he probably has a switch to turn off the lighting effects.

    Looking at this and some of the other projects coming through, Mod of the Year is going to be better than ever. Attilla is going to turn out another classic and Waynio isn't far off finishing Stealthlow. The scratch build that K3nny done is awesome, Ang3l has popped out another brilliant build and there's probably a few more that I've forgotten to mention. I followed this build right from the start and it's absolutely brilliant now that it's finished.

    I was thinking just the same thing this afternoon! I've seen at least 10 world-class projects this year and we're not even half way through the year yet!

    I keep thinking to myself that watercooling is just too expensive.

    Then I see something like this and I just think "BUT ITS SO WORTH IT"

    Amazing build, been watching from the begining and its truely exceptional.

    I don't envy you at he end of the year trying to sort through them all. At this rate it'll be a total nightmare working out whats going in and what isn't.

    Nice build. I'm warning people about the dangers of FESER UV coolant. It's 10 x more electrically conductive than their bi-distilled water and if it leaks it will DESTROY your computer. I switched to a competitor's coolant some years ago (made from vegetables apparently).

    I haven't had any major fry-ups when using Feser 1 UV Coolant... I hope I won't. Been using it for over a year now with regular changes. Had a few major splashes on the graphics card and motherboard when changing the fluid for a renewal when it happened (PC was off at the time). Working ok so far and has been for a long while, but I'm intending on switching coolant just to be on the safe side.

    Funny, I've spilled it several times on major components and never had an issue and it's a heap load cheaper than fluidxp that I used to use.

    *****. Real men use Fluorinert. :p

    Feser and other similar non-conductive fluids are fine as long as you don't spill it in your PSU. That is the only place where it will cause shorts, due to the high voltages zapping about in there. Only Fluorinert is really 100% non-conductive --and costs a fortune.

    As for the desk: it's a desk! It's a PC! It's a desk and a PC! It's freedom in a cup! Er, desk...

    So so awesome, yet so so impractical for LAN parties.

    This is my favourite large-scale PC modding/crafting project that I've yet seen. I had planned to do something similar myself on a smaller scale before, but it would never have lived up to the quality and execution of this.
    Major kudos!
