The Hive

Recommended Posts

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

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.

I must say I have never seen mdf splinter

 

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