Time to mod again.First i re made the rad covers.

Image

Then i took a piece of oak and cut it in pieces.

Image

Image

From the pieces i made triangles.

Image

Now thats finisht its time to fit the rad covers.

Image

Image

Image

Time to put the triangles in place.I have 2 options to mount them on the rad covers.

Option 1.

Image

Image

Image

Option 2.

Image

Image

Image

I like both options so maby i can make a chioce with the top on.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I go for option 1.

On to the next job.

Because of some design change i have to remake the cover for the four fans in the front.I could make a new one but i choose to customize the old one.

Image

First i cutt the cover to the right lenght.

Image

Then i cutt a piece of 2mm aluminium.

Image

Spotwelded the piece on the cover.

Image

Because the cover is 800 mm long its not wise to weld it in 1 time because you end up with a banana.So i welded the cover with small steps.

Image

Image

Some sanding and the cover is done.

Image

Test fitt.

Image

Image

To get acces to the aquaero i had to cutt out a piece from the backplate.

Image

Image

Image

Thats finisht to.A few days back i have received my fittings and im not using tube but im gonna use stainless steel 10mm pipe.

The fittings.

Image

Image

Image

The pipe.

Image

I also did a leak test and its all good. :D.

Image

On to the next job.

To get acces to de back of the desk i need to remove the top cover and then the backcover so i made some changes.

First i measure the piece that has to go.

Image

The some cutting and finishing.

Image

Test fitting and now i only have to remove the top to get acces to the back section.

Image

Then it was time to make the connections i need for the keyboard,mouse and psu.I had some things laying around and they were perfect for this project.

Image

Drilled some holes and did some sanding and used M3 thread for mounting.

Image

Image

Then i cutt 2 pieces of aluminium and drilled some holes and tapped M3 thread in them.

Image

Time to fitt.

Image

Image

Image

Image

I still need a few more connections but i first have to place a order to get them.

I bought black cable and black connectors and im already making custom cables.Im not going to use sleeve and leave the cables the way they look now.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

More to come.

The last couple of weeks i was drilling holes and sanding a lot of parts.So not much material to do an update but still it was a lot of work

Here is one of the things i did.

Image

Image

Everything is mounted now and the only thing i need to mount is the top.

Image

Image

Last saturday i made the psu cover.

First i bend the piece then weld it en at last some finishing.

Image

Image

Image

Then i drilled the holes in the frame and tapped them with m4 thread.

Image

The psu cover mounted on the frame and the psu mounted on the cover.

Image

Image

Some jigsaw action.

Image

Image

Test fit.

Image

Then i draw a grill and cut it with the lasercutter.

Image

Drilled the mounting holes in the cover and tapped them with m3 thread and after that i mounted the grill.This is how it looks at this point.

Image

Image

I need some other controls.

The controls for the columns are mounted underneath the desk and the chance you would damage it was big so i contect Linak and ask them for other controls.

The new controls.

Image

First i drilled the holes.

Image

Then i cut a piece of 3mm alu and drilled the holes for the cables.

Image

Image

Then i welded the plate and testfit the controls.

Image

Image

Then i made the mounting brackets for mounting the oak top.

First i made all the parts i need and then i drilled,tapped,welded,finisht and then mount them inside the desk.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

After that i made a hole in the backcover and mounted the connector.The desk only needs 1 powercord the rest will be inside.

Image

Image

Like i said this is just a glimpse of what i did past 3 days and to be honest everytime i thought of taking a picture i was to late.The plan was to bring all parts to the coater tomorrow and i can tell you i made it the parts are ready to go.

All parts together.

Image

Image

Image

Ready to go.

Image

The parts are back.I unpacked some parts a made a few pictures.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Time to putt the desk together.This time i lett the pictures speak for themself.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I also painted the parts that needed to be painted.

The frontgrill.

Image

Some brushing.

Image

Painted it with varnish.

Image

Image

Then i sanded the oak and painted it with bootslak.

Image

Image

Image

Image

More to come.

First i attached the frame to the backside along with the controlbox and the psu.I also mounted the oak backpanel and the new controls for the columns.

Image

Image

Image

The columns were not used fror some time so i did a little test and made a small movie while testing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMfIEgbqLdg

Then i mounted the cpu block on the motherboard.

Image

Image

Mounted the reservoirs and the motherboard on the mobotray.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then i start bending the pipes for the first loop.

Image

Image

The loop is finisht at this point so then i mounted the gpu block and the backplate.

Image

Image

Placed the gpu on the mobo.

Image

Image

Next thing to do is instal the second gpu block and backplate and start bending the pipes for the second loop.

First i mounted the waterblock,backplate and the twincoonect on the gpu.After that i finisht bending the second loop.

I also put on the oak top on the desk just for the looks and it even looks better then i expect.

The pictures speak for themselfs so have fun watching.
