Horizontal liquid cooling inside of a desk build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,

I would like to discuss building a water cooling system for a desk mod where the setup is horizontal and where you have more space to utilize then in a typical Pc Case. I see many builds out there where desk are made to house computers using water cooling, But no break down as to loops and placement of hardware is talked about. I am sure there are many opinions out there to be tossed around. Performance over Budget.

Building this Desk Mod for me is about pushing the limits of a computer.


So below is a Picture of my build currently in construction.

I’d like to discuss layouts and placement to best utilize this space.
Devices needed to be water cooled will be
1 Cpu
4 Gpu’s
8 hard drives
1 motherboard (North and south bridge)
2 memory blocks

I have decided to use the x79 AsRock Extreme 11 board as it will be pushing the quad titans at 16 x via the PCIe slots. Possibly upgrading to a haswell board once there eight core chip comes out. Hope to see a nice overclock rate with water cooling
Useage of this desk will be for rendering as well as gaming.

I also like to Discuss possible using 1 Radiator (Choose Size) , 1 Pump (Choose size), and 1 Reservoir (400mm) per device (block) on there own. (Basically 5 Separate cooling systems) Pro and Cons.

What are issues modders would or have run into while building a water cooling system inside of a desk?
