The Desk Rev 2.0

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
The Desk Rev 2.0

Hi everybody. This is a complete new design of "The Desk". It'll have more features (and it'll become more user friendly)
All cables will be sleeved in white. This will fit in the theme of black & white.
Cooling fluid will be Mayhems Pastel Ice White, since it's the only white cooling fluid i know.

Following features:
- False bottom for hiding the wiring
- Rear that can be opened for easier loop filling & cable management
- Lighter: 12mm MDF vs. 20mm Triplex
- Easier to disassemble
- 2 x 5.25" inch drive bays (for DVD drive & Fan controller)
- WORKING front panel audio
- Metal/Steel/Alu I/O panel
- Better paintjob
- Bigger loop featuring a tube reservoir
- Better cable management

Here are some screenshots:

Backplate (Rads fit perfectly!)


The hole for the tempsensor was too big, so i had to make a smaller bracket for it:


Final mockup:


Hinges mounted for the top:


Bought some cable clamps for only €3.00!

Already a massive thanks to the subscribers biggrin.gif
After the holiday, i'll do the next layer of paint, It's satin black paint. It only dries in 2 days.
The other watercooling components also have to wait for after the holiday.

Small update:

Those little blocks on the wood are standoffs so the false floor doesn't sag:


I've cut some more holes for the SATA cables:


More to come after the holiday biggrin.gif
