    Hey everyone,

    I am new to this, so sorry if I don't adhere to the guide lines and best practices (I am doing my best though!). I am planning to build a water cooled PC inside my more or less antique desk's center drawer. Therefor I am going to substitute the floor and the rear of the drawer with aluminium / steal panels. The panels are going to have cut-outs for ventilation and cables.

    Here are my plans for the panels.

    I am going to post the CAD-files soon as well. The files are going to be produced by the company Manupa, who work closely with Laserhub (I can recommend both!). Laserhub is going to lasercut the panels.

    Here is a list of the componants:

    Motherboard: Gigabyte B550I Aurus Pro Elite (purchased)
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 5600X or 5800X (plannend)
    GPU: Zotac RTX 3080 Gaming Amp Holo or RTX 3080 FE (planned)
    Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws V, 2x 16 GB, 3600, CL16 (Dual Rank) (purchased)
    SSD: XPG SX8200 Pro 512 GB (purchased)
    PSU: Corsair SF750 (purchased)
    Controller: Aqua Computer Octo (purchased)

    Watercooling:
    Rads: Alphacool 4x 80 mm, Alphacool 7x 40 mm Rad (purchased)
    Tubing: Black tubes from EK (planned)
    Fittings: EK Quantum Torque, Alphacool Eiszapfen and low profile fittings from Coolance (purchased/planned)
    Pump: EK Quantum DDC Pump-Res Combo, 160 mm (planned)
    CPU & GPU-Blocks: EK (planned)
    Fans: 7 Noctua NH-F4x20, 6 Arctic F8 (might return for Arctic P8) (planned/purchased)

    Possible theme for the inside of the drawer: Ghost in the Shell

    Have great evening!

    Best,
    Max

    Update:

    Plans:
    German company Manupa made CAD-files from my 2D-plans. I only have PDFs of the panels for the upper and lower floors unfortunately. I am going to post photos of the panels, once I receive them from Laserhub. You can find the PDFs attached to this post.

    Hardware:
