This is a custom made waterblock, I made a year or two back, actually several of them.

Its made of copper with silver coating on bottom and nickel on the top. Since I dont have a milling machine, its made by drilling using a specially designed drill bit (top shape of something like that bearing you mentioned)

AMAZING work! Certainly waiting for more progress! (The UCase is amazing nonetheless!)

Why am i just now finding this?!?! Like someone said earlier in the thread, there is definitely a demand for built in pc desks. Something simple and reasonably priced is all we ask and let the modders take it from there to fit their needs. We all dont have the tools or skills to pull it off but i know many want/need something like this. Excellent work and keep it up...and SELL ME ONE!! biggrin.gif

If I were to make a desk similar to the UDesk design would want also the the airtight noiseless option? Because that is what makes it very difficult to make and thus expensive.

Lets say I made a classical design case (air intakes, for watercooling or aircooling) in the table in the style of UDesk, it would be easier and it could cost lets say about 2k in USD. Thats still a lot I think for most of the people especially if the precision is only on level "hand made" not "CNC". The guessed price is that high because it takes simply a lot of time.

This is just speculation, so give me your ideas and we can elaborate further together smile.gif

I wish I could honestly give a reasonable solution. I've played around with ideas and sketchups on a desk trying to come up with the simplest design to start with. The easiest way I can think of for people without the resources to do it themselves is cnc and bolt on panels. Keep it very "IKEA " like. I mean, I found a company to cut out a nice glass top if I just had a frame or skeleton of a desk to put it on. I think a lot of people are like myself. I'm not going to be able build a desk but I've got a dremel that'll get to where I want to be.

I had an idea to make things supersimple but before I tell you what it is, I would like to know, what are the main targets with a pc built in desk.

I would expect:
- the ability to see components and stuff
- accessibility of the components
- ergonomics
- - space for legs
- - no distraction for gaming or work (meaning the components are off center of the table)
- - comfort for hands (no glass where you place your hands, preferably real wood)

Feel free to make your own list and even rate the importance of each point etc.
