[Build Log] Panorama's Custom Desk - V1.0 - Page 2

post #11 of 33
What kind of fish does your gf plan on keeping in the tank portion of desk? Or was that just humor? I'd assume that if its not a joke, you'd keep the water loops separate. I wonder if you could feasibly heat the aquarium water and cool the PC loop with the same TEC? Hmmmm....

Haha yea, I actually considered it for awhile but concluded it would be farnto complicated.

But if you had some tropical fish you could plausibly run it in your loop biggrin.gif

I dunno about fish in a PC loop being plausible. The algae, food, waste, etc would wreak havoc in your loop/blocks. Saltwater also would be right out, conductivity and increased corrosion risk and all. Since you're in Australia, you have such beautiful reef denizens in your front yard, but the copper in the blocks kills marine invertebrates like corals, so no awesome saltwater tank.

But separate loops with a TEC heating the aquarium side and cooling the PC side might work. I would be concerned about the fish side getting too hot under prolonged load and too cold if you didn't turn your PC on often enough. You could balance that with a heater and a chiller on the aquarium side, but at that point there's no reason to thermally link the systems.

Yeah, it's too complicated and not worth the effort to combine them. A neat thought experiment though.

And on the topic of your desk:

Since you have a two piece desk surface, have you considered constructing your desk so that it can separate into two free-standing pieces for ease of moving?

Haha yea, was mostly wishful thinking.
Plausible, but impractical because of maintenance.

As for the desk, it actually does separate into two free standing pieces with the removal of a metal plate. Which does allow me to work on the PC easily enough. Although the other piece is still a bit to large to be conveniently moved

Stain Time biggrin.gif

Desk 80% done!

Also most of these photo's are taken just off my tablet for simplicities sake (australia's sick upload speed) but for the completed build I will include a few hi-res wink.gif

This is a shot of a few bits for the water loop and desk in general biggrin.gif
