    'simplicity' at it's best

    looking damn good and gonna be interesting to see outcome (cause of the 'inward' IO)

    awesome job and loving the white/black with touch of red

    also nice to see how the tubes actually make build look even hotter

    Well I can now officially announce: The Watermod Desk when completed in its low-cost version (if I can say ^^), there will be a Rev 2.0 version more upscale and gamer style !

    To begin with, I really want to thank ASUS France - Republic Of Gamers for their support in providing me one of the 500 ARES III existing in this world, yet THANK !!!

    So see you soon with the Rev 2.0 ARES III desk by Watermod: D

    :drool:
    would it be possible to route the tubing from and to the Ares on the Backside of the Card so that you can show the Waterblock in all of its glory (if the card stays in a horizontal orientation)

    Looking great Sassanou. Perfect example of what kind of awesomeness can be achieved without breaking the bank. Keep up the great work buddy, that ares gpu looks great :thumb:

    I was really worried about how those white fittings would do the white hose, but it looks great!
    And with the all white and black theme, this is one of the top desk builds ive seen!
    But have you thought about shortening the hose abit? Maybe my eyes are broken from the new hard tubing standard, but they look kinda wierdly bent :) no offense!

    I'm sorry to say that with all that good stuff inside the desk my eyes see only tubes and cables. White really covers/diminishes the hardware.
    I'l go trasparent for the tubing, black for the cables, but it's your mod and I suspect my critics come from ENVY for your Ares...:lol:
