Hi there:)

I'm quite new to this forum, but since they liked my build at some Dutch hardware sites, i wanted to post it here too.

My other build came to an end and didn't know what to improve, but my old desk almost fell apart.

Image

Really want to thank Pascal for his pc-in-a-desk idea. After seeing it I couldn't even sleep that night :)

I started sketching it with Google Sketchup
After 9 hours of non-stop drawing it finally had some shape.

Image

Image

Made some holes for the lcd's for the in and outgoing water temperature, and for the logo

Image

Had to make some changes to let my knees fit :)

Image

Fitting the trays with sound isolation under it.

Image

I love packages !

Thought the buttons would the same, gonna change for 2 big one's now.

Image

Sound isolating for under my trays.

;)


For 10 years i always used the "better" soundcards.
But the last year i used onboard, somehow i didn't like it.

And last week my eye fell on the Asus Xense.
I fell in love instantly !
Specially cause it would fit perfectly in the desk with the chrome look.
So i was already saving some money for it.
Andy PSU died ... And we can't run without it
Here some unpacking pictures.

2 days from 09:00 till 23:00 and 10:00 till 17:00

Still seems like nothing has changed ^^


Breaking down already took a few hours :)

]Image


Too small holes for those cables.

Image


couldn't find those cables in another color :(

Image


Removed the hdd stickers.

Image


Ready to take off.

Image


Like a bomb exploded.

Image


measuring and drilling.

Image


Changing the tempsensors.
This is so i can put them at the in and outlet in the desk.
I can measure the in and outgoing temperatures more accurate then.

Image


Pff it still works :)

Image


Aluminium rain.

Image


Sleeved the ugly red sata cables.

Image

Cutouts for the dvd-r drives.

Image


BP bucket.

Image


Done.

Image


Further on with the loop.

Image


Tempsensors mounted, just a tiny piece of barb.

Image


Sleeved cables sleeved again :)

Image

Image


Now the worst part, connecting the cables again and placing the new PSU.

Image


Also done.

Image


Custom made molex of 1.30m for the Asus Xense.

Image


piece by piece ....

Image


New molex for the "underground fans cable".

Image

Ready to fill it up.

Image


Almost done filling the new loop.

Image


wtf, ghosts in my res ...

Image


Loop running, all thats left getting the pc running.

Image


Wow, it booted, luckily i got normal voltages now.

Image


Almost forgot the extra hole for the bulgin switch for the lighting :)

Image


First temporary, later with sleeve.

Image


They work !
Power switch/power led -- Reset switch/hddled -- Lighting switch/lichting led

Image


Screens off

Image


Works like a charm.

Image


Hdd temps lowered 17-20 degrees.

Image


Still in love :)

Image


It fits :)
You can also see the Xense molex

Image


Pc heats up the water with 1.7 degrees.

Image


Hmm needs some polishing.

Image[/url]


Perfect spot for the Sennheiser Xense :)

Image


Ready to type this update !
