[Build Log] - Aviant Snow - Desk PC [Complete]

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 



Starting My first and ambitious build, fully watercooled and inside a desk, my personal Gaming Desktop called

Aviant Snow



Inspiration

The idea originated from when I saw ImFaceRoll and his completely custom watercooled desk PC,
I followed most of his materials with building the desk and spent about 10 hours building and recently sent off to get painted (For $300 Australian Emu's).
The theme is black and white and I have masked off some areas of the Mobo to block the blue on the passive cooler

Update

I know its been like a minute but here's some more potato quality photos of my components, having a friend of mine take pics of the final project and updates in a couple days









The Glass is under a desk covered in blankets to reduce chance of it breaking it wont scratch because its tempered glass

Dude this looks sweet, I had no idea the glass costs so much!

Do you have any CAD sketchups of what the final product is gonna be like?

I was going to make one but unfortunately school and other things got in the way so we just jumped straight into making the desk itself

Sounds good, I haven't had much free time either. AP classes really dump the homework on ya.

Welcome to OCN by the way, glad to have you here!

No unfortunately I didn't I had some help with learning how to use a jigsaw and the man who is lifting the lid in the second photo of the desk made sure I didn't screw anything up but after the cuts he left and I did everything. Its currently getting painted

BTW just remembered when i was installing my waterblock for my graphics card, I stripped the head of one of the screws, so i tried a bunch of different methods to try and remove it but the only option that worked was I had to drill into the screw but i did test the GPU since then and it still works
