Hi all back for the new year with a new build, firstly after my previous attempt of a desk build I found that it took me months to build and mad far too many mistakes such as ventilation, no base, to square, poor build quality just to name a few. So this year I've decided to make a follow up project to get it all right and this time I've Been far more motivated. Hope you like the build. I will be recycling the computers from the previous build although adding more water cooling parts and possibly a 2nd GPU and fans lots of fans.

Quick Sketch up of the plan

Not sure if I will need 3 monitors might settle for 2


and we come to the build





and the finally the fan holes for that much needed ventilation

subb of course,
from sketch it looks pretty good and pretty challenging too
but the feet, are you sure it can hold the weight for long term?

cheers, to begin with i was worried about it holding steady i went with 16mm legs and the back bracing the legs and a single piece as the bottom that every thing is screwed to before i had the back on it was quite wobbly but since the back is on and an extra brace under the base its been really quite sturdy but i am thinking of adding a X brace underneath just in case

Little update will be running 2 pumps for the loop as aposed to the single pump from previous build and along with my 6 original scythe ultra kaze Fans for the radiators i will have an aditional 3 scythe slip stream fans on the other side over the home server and 4 Scythe Slip Stream Slim along the back so hopefully i wont have the same problems with ventilation as i encountered with previous build will also have a NZXT Sentry mix 2 6ch fan controller for the 6 ultra kaze fans hoping to iliminate a power issue i encountered with my BitFenix HYDRA-Pro 5ch unit.
Monday i will be getting to the base of the desk and cutting the holes for cables and hopefully if i have time i will cut and mount the back devider for the cable management, along with pulling the old desk apart to clean the watercooling parts and get it ready to mount into the new desk. fingers crossed the build will be complete mid march. will update with a lot more progress and some photos soon.

Very nice man, I want to do this in the future building a desk computer, I do not have the skills to make something look good enough to use so I think I will be going the Redharbinger brand, and the sheet metal or Aluminum will look awesome!!!!

Nice build! Really impressive craftsmanship!

Do you remember the original Tron movie, how the bad guy had a desktop that was actually the main computer? Your rig sort of reminds me of it :)

Congrats on a job well done! :toast:
