    I have a question: The distance between the HD's and the motherboard is over a meter. (i am guessing here ) Then routing the SATA cables through the table. The cables must be at least 120cm long. Isn't this bad for the data transport from HD to Mobo and back ?

    I always thought the G69T projects were the ultimate, however this is now a serious contender for one of the greatest projects of all time.
    G69T has some difficult competition lol

    I'm with kaiser on this.
    Even the best, least-conductive coolants will absorb metallic particles from the block surfaces and radiators they come into contact with, making them conductive over time.
    You're probably okay if spilling non-conductive coolant by Feser and the likes on your gear straight out of the bottle or if you get a leak/burst within a few months of building the loop; but over time that coolant will become as dangerous to electronics as tap water.

    Thanks for all the comments guys !!

    The cables are even 200cm. That was one of the things i thought it would give troubles.
    But after 4 months running with 100cm sata+100cm sata extension i still didn't have any problem at all.
    There is one thing that can give problems, that are all the 12V cables with extensions.
    The voltage wil lower cause of the lengths.
    Thats why im using a 700W and a 800W psu now, no problems at all :p

    Agree. And since it is clear even by looking at the labels on feser one versus feser bi-distilled that the feser UV is 10 x more conductive then at least by choosing the least conductive you are protecting your hardware for longer. My Thermochill EC6 is more than 12 months old but still non-conducting (it leaked on to my upper 560Ti from cpu waterblock nozzle which had been improperly secured. The GPU was running happily even with a blob of sticky honey-like liquid that had dripped on to one of the power transistors.

    Why are people calling scratch built things "mods"? :confused:

    He hasn't modified anything, he's scratch built it.

    I like the idea, and it looks incredible, but I wonder how much it costs. I imagine that just the radiator could be installed in a much simpler desk and sold for much less. This to will come after the initial marketing phase

    Is it not a computer case that's been 'modified into a desk?

    I can't be a total knob so congrats for making the front page Pete :thumb:.
    I'm completely turned off from mod comps with internet votes now but I'm not turned off modding :D:thumb:.
