The Desk

I'm Alexander, 18 years and live in Belgium.
Since i'm sick of watching my cold cathode lights shining everyday in my eyes, i decided to build a desk (with offcourse the feature that i can turn of my ccfls).
Reason why i'm building a desk is because i like working with my pc, unless i have to fix something in it... A desk is a very good solution, because you only have to lift the glass plate, and you don't have to sit on the ground with your pc.
Cable management and airflow are also better in a custom desk, so here it is:

Here's a sketchup model i've made in the beginning of the build.

Asus M5A78L/LE
AMD FX-6100
XFX HD7770
Sharkoon WPM500
2 x 4GB Patriot AMD Entertainment Edition RAM (1333MHz) + 2 x 4GB Geil Enhance Corsa (1333MHz)
Samsung SpinPoint 502HJ 500GB
Maxtor Diamondmax 250GB
LG Flatron W1934S (temporary)

Processor: XSPC Rasa Black (Acetal) waterblock
Pump: X2O 450 12v pump/res
Radiators: RX120 & Magicool Slim Dual 240
Temp: XSPC LCD Display Temp Sensor (wit)
Fan controller: Scythe Kaze Q3.5
Fans: 1x Scythe 120mm Slip Stream Slim & 4x BitFenix Spectre 120mm
Cooling fluid: Feser One Pure/No UV - Clear
Drainport: Enzotech Matt Black Sealing Plug
T-Line connector

I don't have any sponsors, so i have to buy all the components myself.

Since i already have a buildlog on Highflow, i just post some pics here from what i've already done:

Watercooling components:

Scythe Kaze Q 3.5 delivered DOA:

Failed paintjob:

Little overview with the desk painted:

New design/ colorcombination:

Bought a wooden plate that was too small, sawed it in half biggrin.gif


Not too low at all!

Some bubbles...

Controlbox for the CCFL's:


Here's the wiring:

Got the Geil Enhanced Corsa from my brother! (thanks bro!)

Needs more cable management, but is not finished yet:

I've made some shelves (to put some books on, offcourse)

Perfect fit:

Also a new reinforcement plate:

Extra stuff to make the loop look better:

Doesn't it look awesome?


That's all for today folks! More to come! (if my order is going to be delivered...)
