    I want to thank everyone for following this project!
    For me personally it was quite a challenge.
    First of all because of the available free time I had next to my job and family.
    But specially to create a 'Desk PC' below $400 of material. (2xP5 + tools + glass + mounting)
    All this with standard tools like a jigsaw, drill, ironsaw, file and sandpaper.
    So here's my contribution to the Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational 2016 Season 1

















    Finally I had 20 minutes to enjoy DOOM







    A huge thanks goes out to all followers, sponsors and off course Thermaltake for making all this possible!

    ps. Should I make a little video too?

    More drilling, cutting, filing and sanding.

    Came up with an little idea to bring 12V for fans, pump and lighting to the right side of the desk. 

    Picked up the laminated glas panel for the Tt d3sk.

    Also picked up something awesome to complete this desk setup

    Back to the 'powerbar'

    2 molex lines directly from PSU to the right side.

    Some wire management inside the P5



    Shortening the massive steel poles which will hold the glass panel.

    I just found out where my safety glasses were

    Few to go.

    Going to test the hardware without liquidcooling. Very excited!


    I never thought about the ROG logo from the Asus PG348 ... normally it shines ON your desk ... 
    I like the effect!

    Thanks bud!
    I planned the whole weekend for measuring, cutting, drilling, filing, sanding etc




    Ahh yes .. what I've been waiting for!

    One arm should be able to hold 63kg.

    Not much left of the internals.

    Bottom shot

    So lets cut! (tried the dremel once again .. screw that)




    Cover plate for right side of the desk where normally the mainboard goes



    More filing needed

    And holes

    Also countersinking the PSU




    Sorry, I don't like stickers ^^

    Rads also more inside

    More holes, drilling and sanding.

    Just had to test the fans

    Lets kick off with the first big update

    Unpacking .. Awesome!

    The P5's

    480 Rads

    Plenty of pump power.



    Lots of fans.

    Cpu and Strix blocks

    Not sure yet if and how much I will use it, but a bending kit

    It will be a mixture of PETG and nickelplated brass

    All unpacked




    So shiny!

    The gaming gear! Off course needed to complete a desk.

    First steps, mounting the fans.

    And sleeving the pumps.

    Just trying to imagine myself how it would look.


    Sawing mounting rails for the desk

    Will be using regular shelve holders to mount the desk to the wall

    The idea

    More next time

    Got the small set of LEDs mounted in there.  Just need to do the aluminum top trim and then cleanup/assembly.  And... then do it all again

    Also took some time to play w/ wood.  Doing an iron acetate wash on some wood to see about getting a dark black/gray type look.   First pass yielded some interesting results, more testing needed though.

    Progress continues!  The next layer of the GPU block has gone from render to reality with a quick lighting test!

    Detail shot.  I REALLY like how this turned out.

    And, of course, we have to see it in blue as well!
