    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
    NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080 Ti
    ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME OMEGA
    G.SKILL TRIDENT Z ROYAL 8GX8
    SEAGATE FIRECUDA 510 SSD 2TB
    INTEL I9 9980XE

    Water cooling:
    EK WATER BLOCKS

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

    • 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.

    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.

    • Nickel plating
    Stainless steel 4mm and aluminum 10mm nickel plated finish, the results are very satisfactory.
