    Hello everyone,

    I’m AK from Taiwan.

    I want to create a simple and elegant design concept.

    This year I will be modding the C700M and experimenting with using handmade leather and attempting to create a custom resevoir made out of wood.

    Whilst making it look modern, clean and sleek.

    Specs:
    COOLER MASTER COSMOS C700M
    COOLER MASTER V1300 PLATINUM
    COOLER MASTER MASTERFAN SF120M
    NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080 Ti
    ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME OMEGA
    G.SKILL TRIDENT Z ROYAL 8GX8
    SEAGATE FIRECUDA 510 SSD 2TB
    INTEL CORE i9-9980XE

    Water cooling:
    EK-CPU LIGNUM-WALNUT
    EK-FC RTX 2080 Ti LIGNUM-WALNUT
    EK-HTC LIGNUM 12MM - WALNUT
    EK-XTOP REVO D5 PWM (INCL. SLEEVED PUMP)
    EK-COOLSTREAM SE 360 (SLIM TRIPLE)
    EK-HD TUBE 10/12MM 500MM
    EK-AF FITTINGS

    CUSTOM RESERVOIR
    CUSTOM CABLE

    Massive thanks to Cooler Master, ASUS Republic of Gamers, NVIDIA GeForce Taiwan, G.SKILL, Seagate, EK Water Blocks, for supporting my projects.

    • Spray paint
    Appearance polished, first spray primer and finally sprayed black finish.

    The light guide strip is sprayed with transparent black to make the whole black tone.

    • Walnut
    This big challenge, using walnut to make water tank, need to be processed twice, using epoxy resin as the first layer of waterproof treatment!
    There are also side panels.

    Cutting and smoothing.

    First time CNC, water tank shape.

    Epoxy resin filling.
    [​IMG]

    Second CNC processing.

    The result is not bad! Then it needs to be polished to completely transparent to see the wood inside, and then spray the transparent paint.

    Side panel finish.

    Walnut and stainless steel? :jawdrop: The epoxy/wood technique has a lot of potential. You could add an epoxy water level window in the res, or add filled grooves for lights. Plus wood under a thick polished layer of plastic looks beautiful.

    • Internal
    Keep a simple design concept, perspective
    The cable will be a big problem, so it took a lot of time here.
