    Well, it's been a truly indescribable modding year for me, and I wanted to close out this tremendous honor by thanking the following sponsors, friends and fans.
    In case you missed it (pun intended), I somehow managed to scrape by extremely talented competition and pull some awards in the process.
    It still makes me so proud, as the competition was refined and full of talent!

    Bit-Tech Mod Of The Year and Guru3D Rig Of The Year
    Other achievements

    As a bonus to the supportive community, I am sharing some unseen photos of the finished project.

    After submitting this post, I will be focusing on my current casemod and company, Red Harbinger.
    I have met some incredible people along the way with the L3p D3sk.
    I know a lot of you were very interested in building or buying the L3p D3sk, and I am happy to announce we will be producing it for sale; the manufacture prototypes are being created as I type this final message.
    As a founding member of Red Harbinger Inc., you can expect to see current and future builds (including the L3p D3sk) for actual purchase.
    Again, thanks for all your support and feedback; I could not have done it without the strong support of the community!

    congratulations on the company l3p!!!

    I'm really looking forward to see the mass produced l3p d3sk
    and if the price is right, I'm considering getting one of it :D

    Congratulations l3p. You deserved every single award if not more for your astounding effort and creativity. Every thing you come up with, people are left speechless. I browse TPU at school and as soon as one of your threads is up everyone is just looking at the photos with their mouths open...it's unreal.

    It's good to see something like l3p d3sk coming to the consumer and I think this is a case of first class innovation. Thank you for being epic to the community and keep up the epic work!

    That's awesome news! Been reworking a few designs based on yours and hammering out details with a local precision metal shop in the area, but if I can get it from the source, it might be worth the wait. I've subbed to the RH mail list now, so hopefully more good news to come. (btw thanks for the email reply a few weeks back!)

    Do you have plans to ship state-side, or do you think the weight will be prohibitive?

    Thanks again all of you! :toast:

    Hi Nocht!
    We will certainly ship worldwide, but as I'm 'only' a designer I got no clue what the costs will be :)

    This is an amazing build. I love it.

    What other forums do you have this posted on? I think I saw the build thread when it first started on another forum but can't remember which one lol

    So now that you're done and famous from the desk.... those components in their are looking a tad dated. I think it's time for an upgrade :p

    seriously though, fantastic job on this. It's a great way to show people that pc's are more than just boxes but can be their own work of art and ingenuity in and of themselves.

    Thanks a lot for sharing m8! Really like the idea with the screen and speakers!
    Building it from wood was my first plan, however I'm really addicted to aluminum :p

    The best build ever made, it looks so badass, all respects to the genius l3p!

    I've never experimented with builds and modding, but after seeing this and the mineral oil cooling methods i think it would be a great hybrid having a oil aquarium computer under your hands while your at your desk :D I guess the casing has to be constructed safely so no leaking occurs. Also working on replacements would be a mess probably.

    Sorry for pulling this thread out of the dust .. :)

    Wanted to let you guys know 'L3p D3sk' is still alive.
    After 3 years not changing anything it was time for an upgrade, re-install and clean-up.
    Here's a little log about it

    lots of water

    It's a good project, superb,
    But with the space that you're below ground, maybe if you had a deposit of 100 to 500 liters for refrigeration system didn't need no radiator fans.:toast:

    Thanks! :)

    Problem is that 100-500 Liters of Feser UV green is quite expensive :p

    I really love this mod. UV, installation, monitor, the great idea of underground rad (I would be afraid to go change something there hahaha).

    Question: As per 2013, why using a 2600k and a GTX 690? Used item? (if so I understand, I changed my 2500k for a 2700k (cost me 100$) :p )
