So
The big day is finally here
With my final exams out of the way ( :woo: :woo: ) the time has begun for my latest project

A fully self contained liquid cooled desk

I have only seen a couple of these on the internet, and none i have seen have been this size.

I call this the Hive, due to the fact it is 2.4m long, 1m wide Resident Evil inspired desk.
It has the space inside it to hold 4 seperate watercooling loops, 4 quad radiators, 2 entire computer systems, 4 large powersupplies and can even fit triple 30 inch monitors on top.

So today the reign of the desk began, at my local bunnings, where 5 sheets of 2.4x1.2m MDF was cut up, and bought home.

Thank you to all the current sponsors

Posted Image For supplying paint, sandpaper, tools and fasteners for this project
FrozenQ, for sending two of their liquid fusion V series reservoirs (dont have a logo sorry guys, will post one when i can get one)

So, all this MDF was carted home, and arranged in a pile on the floor of my garage, awaiting initial construction tomorrow
So heres a few pics to capture your interest

Not a huge update today, and only 1 more pic.

I assembled the legs of the desk (yes they will be that way up when the desks done) and sanded them ready for painting tomorrow/tuesday.

More pics to follow with the painting of various parts.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

It's gonna be a sick desk, but are you going to have the computer hardware to fill it up to its max potential? ;)

Be careful with that MDF! Just pray it doesn't break or splinter on you while drilling and tightening on it!

yeah i doubt this will splinter or break, its the 18mm thick stuff, also its high density fiberboard, so a grade above mdf
