^^Small price to pay. I've never really liked the look of the gpu only blocks.

It appears that the problem isn't only with the GPU blocks, it's also the orientation of the card power connectors. I also don't like the look of GPU only cooling blocks.

He said they will bend, so its only a small part of the issue. Not sure why ATi went with upright connectors after parallel and right angle ones for so long.

Yup they'll be easy enough to get around compared to the block and fittings.

I assume AMD went with the uprights to help with fitting these long cards in cramped cases. That's not a problem here though. I'd prefer them in the back but I'm not about to be the guy to go repositioning anything on a pcb.

At any rate I have a lot of things to take care of the next couple days so I'm going to have to wait on the router work.

Considering the top of the gpu blocks are my high point in the loop I'm also having some issues now figuring out where/how/if I should add a fill/drain port. Being over budget already I need to get this right before I place my last order for a couple extenders and other random fittings to get the loop to my liking.

this is amazing man. pretty much my dream case, I built my desk into the wall, and plan on wall mounting the monitors in a similiar config, but my pc is still housed externally in a normal case. only thing I noticed would be a lip over the back connections (i/o, 120vac) so the desk can push flat against a wall

Thanks! Wall mounted Mmmmmhmmm! Now that this thing is nearing completion I've had some visions of v2 being wall mounted 6 screen eyefinity unfolding transforming rig. Maybe even oil filled lol.
You should google and check out l3p d3sk. I think he has a log over at hardocp. His desk is wall mounted with wall mounted monitors. I want to say he just cut a hole in the top of his desk for all the i/o cables.... not exactly sure how he runs power to it though.

Dang.....i hate anticipation, but love it at the same time. I can't wait to see the next update.

This has to be the most interesting and very inspirational thread that I have ever came across with.

It's like reading a book, such a great journey so far. Thanks for sharing this with us. I and I think all who reads this thread appreciate your hardwork.

I'm subbed and +rep.

P.S. I too made my own table 32"deepx54"widthx30"height all white melamine board, but compare to your's you make mine look like a child's plaything.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! I'm constantly looking at this thing thinking to myself "I should take it apart and do this better or do that. This looks horrible." but as much as I view myself a perfectionist it's just impossible to get everything perfect. Especially with my limited selection of tools. Though it's very reassuring with the interest people have taken in it and their kind comments. Considering it's my first piece of furniture that I've made I'm quite pleased so far. It's been one big learning experience and the next piece can only get better right?

Sorry to everyone following about the updates slowing down. Busy busy weekend. The little time that I've had to tinker has just been messing around with different configurations on the water cooling loop. So far it's amazed me how difficult it is to get it how I like without ordering another $200 in fittings Hopefully I'll get a little something up for you all soon.

as for the wiring, why not create little PCBs with the PCIe power plugs, like RDX did? (iirc)

Check out Fastcap website link here.

They also have an account on Amazon you can do a quick browsing .

Keep us posted and I'll be following along with your other followers.
