I don't know, maybe because we like to build stuff? 😁
Also, @l3p (dutch) made an amazing desk PC which is quite known. I guess he inspired more ppl to do it.

Subbed! anything not in a boring tower deserves respect, love the effort being made to ensure clean air supply.
Your woodworking skills are beautiful (especially when compared to mine)

Of course. I can already say the legs will be made of wood (cheapest option) and will be enforced by securing them to the lengthened side panels.
That's one of the reasons I made the panels longer than the height of the base itself. Another reason was that it'd make the whole construction alot more sturdy!

Yet another update!

First I had to level the inlet of the pump to the outlet of the res. This meant it had to be elevated for 30,5mm: not an easy height to make.


Made an acrylic plate with some holes at the right spots for the pump mount.


Then fixed a bolt with some washers and a locknut to the acrylic plate.



Added another set of locknuts which the pump can rest on. Now I can set the pump to the perfect height by measuring with a slide caliper.


Problem: you will be able to see the bolts because of the silver color.


Solution: a dremel!


Perfect.


Time to mark the spots where the holes need to go in the PVC tubes (cable management.)


Making the holes.






Some filing, and it's done! I'll buy some rubber u-profiles for covering up the imperfections.


Also made a nice cutout where the back of the gpu can rest on. Also quite useful if you want to actually plug in some cables. smile.gif


Small cutout for a rubber grommet. Makes the cable management cleaner.



Got a new mobo after RMA'ing the broken one: works perfectly now!


Working on the custom cables aswell...






Some of the (partly) finished products...! So much time...:lol:



Let me know what you think.. This week or the next, I'll finish all the building and I'll paint the whole thing. :clap:
