    ClownFace1511 got a reaction from Kchase in [Completed][Scratch Build] Project: Ravage - Custom Watercooled Computer Table Build by 17 yr old.   
    Wow, its been a minute since ive been on the forum, let alone update the desk build. Taken me 3 years to finally bite the bullet and do a small upgrade, how time escapes you. Anyway, glad to say I have still been using my desk basically every day since it was built and haven't run into any issues, even with the coolant being 3 years old (sorry ek). Figured it was time to flush everything out and see the damage, and to my surprise, there wasn't any! The ek uv blue fluid that I put in it 3 years ago was still fine, none of the blocks were clogged up, corroded or anything. The soft tubing was a bit stained but the hard line was fine, not that I was super worried because blue fluid was going back into it but none the less the fluid held up super well. Disappointed that they discontinued that fluid but I ended up switching over to cryofuel navy blue which was the closest match. 
     
    Speaking of things being discontinued... I managed to score myself a brand new X99 deluxe monoblock from ek which they found lying around their warehouse after sending in an email trying to get my hands on one. Unfortunately X99 is considered old now so they don't make monoblocks for them anymore which is a bummer. Always wanted to throw one in the table but they weren't in production at the time of me building the table. It does look awesome though, way better than the standard cpu nickle block. 
     
    While everything was apart I took some time to redo some of the acrylic hard line as the existing bends wouldn't line up with the new monoblock and I wasn't real happy with the outcome of some of the bends from day 1 but just went with it as it wasn't a big deal. Its been a while since ive made some hard line tubes so I ordered double what I thought I needed and still didnt have enough and had to go through my pile of scrap pieces and make do. Unfortunately they don't make lengths longer than 500mm anymore which made my job harder because I was working with 800mm pieces before. In the end it worked out well, same sort of design as before, you can only change things so much in such a small area.
     
    I will throw in a couple of pictures of the fans as well, I thought they would be super clogged up seeming as I haven't touched the desk in 3 years but once again I was surprised that the only bad two were the none filtered ones, all the other 9 fans were completely clean. Just goes to show that a good filter setup and also positive air pressure keeps the dust out.
     
    In the 3 years I moved house and only just managed to complete the setup on how I intended it to look, there are minor things that still need to be done but overall I think it looks pretty killer. Above my desk is a cheap 4K TV that I bought from aldi for like $800 and after mucking around with the colour I got it to look fairly decent. It has this blue tinge to it which I cant get rid of but that's probably just the cheap panel. Looks fine when you are watching a movie or just normal free to air TV.
     
    Thats about it really, thew in some cablemod RGBW strips which are a huge improvement over my ebay ones that I had in there before. Didn't feel as though I needed to change out anything else,2x 980ti's and a 5960x aren't going to disappoint for a few more years to come. Not sure what will happen next, can't really say this is the end. Hope you have enjoyed it, still one of the best computer desks out there on the internet although I may be bias ;).

    For me oled looks better for TV but the Samsung qled are better gaming sets with much better response time and no screen burn .  . I went with the 55 Samsung  qled in the end but would of been just as happy with a oled but the price on the Sammy made it too good to pass up . I don't think you would go wrong with either

    It is complete, well for now Cabling has been completed although i'm not too happy with it. There is a huge excess of default evga cabling that I somehow hid in the side section yet it looks very ugly, also the cables for the gpu and motherboard are pushed up against the front face which isn't amazing but its hidden when the lids closed so I don't mind. I need to get some custom sleeving done but haven't found anyone to do it (send me some recommendations please <3). I still need to find a place for my WD Black 4tb somewhere but I will sort that out later. I will do another update with benchmarks, overclocks and temperatures. I don't own many games so there will only be a few game benchmarks but I will be better off to wait until I get 4k screens, for now I will be using my 1080p benq monitor and use nvidia dsr until then. Hope you guys enjoy and this is basically the major work done

    Hey everyone my name is Thom,
     
    I've been a member of the forum for some time now and a subscriber of LinusTechTips for a few years. Being 17 years old I'm still in school, in fact in my last year (Yr 12). Along with that I get to do a “Major Work” for my industrial tech Timber class. This “Major Work” can be anything we want, we must design it, then make it. Along with this we need to make an 80 page folio showing everything from steps of construction to drawings and tools used. We have about 8 months to create our project which is then marked by a group of judges who travel the state and mark the projects from each school. In 2014 I came Dux (First Place) in this subject with a mark of 96% I put a lot of effort into my projects and spend a lot of time designing and planning them.  Being my last year I decided to go big or go home, something that is different than a coffee table, a chair, etc. I decided to make this “Project: Ravage” a modded computer table.
     
    You may be wondering why “Project: Ravage”? Well Ravage is to “cause severe and extensive damage to”, e.g my wallet and then benchmarks. I’m 100% sure none of the judges have seen this before so I'm hoping to blow their minds away. The project has changed so many times since last November when I started to plan it, come to think of it, the first design had 780ti’s in it, which has now been replaced by 980ti’s. Table will be fully water cooled with custom tubing.
     

     
    The top of this table will be made out of Tasmanian Oak with a oil matte finish. To add to this there will be a sheet of glass over the wood top which will be laminated and toughened so it won't shatter or crack. I have always used tables with glass on the top and I like how they don't wear out or get damaged (as easily) like the timber would. This timber is light and will contrast well with the dark stained legs.
     
    The Legs are made out of 70x70 pine with a few pieces of Tasmanian oak accents. These legs will be stained a dark brown/black and then lacquered to a matte finish.
     
    For the box underneath I will be using Meranti. It’s like pine but without the knots. Its got a nice clean grain and looks like a premium timber but without the price tag. This box will be lacquered and kept with the timer look to match the table top and offset from the dark legs.
     

     
    I never did Multimedia in school because the classes were at same time as timber so I never got taught AutoCAD or any other fancy programs. I taught myself how to use sketchup and with that knowledge I designed this table from scratch over a time span of 2-3 months. Throughout this time the table changed quiet a bit to account for different parts, cooling, aesthetics and the normal R&D stuff but it finally came down to this.

    I did everything on a workbench that was 1.5x1.5m. Its good to have a big area to store the project but if you have a small work area you just have to get into a good routine of keeping it clean, makes life so much easier. Even take the saw in your backyard and do cuts, put it away when you don't need it.

Throughout this time the table changed quiet a bit to account for different parts, cooling, aesthetics and the normal R&D stuff but it finally came down to this.

    Hey everyone my name is Thom,
     
    I've been a member of the forum for some time now and a subscriber of LinusTechTips for a few years. Being 17 years old I'm still in school, in fact in my last year (Yr 12). Along with that I get to do a “Major Work” for my industrial tech Timber class. This “Major Work” can be anything we want, we must design it, then make it. Along with this we need to make an 80 page folio showing everything from steps of construction to drawings and tools used. We have about 8 months to create our project which is then marked by a group of judges who travel the state and mark the projects from each school. In 2014 I came Dux (First Place) in this subject with a mark of 96% I put a lot of effort into my projects and spend a lot of time designing and planning them.  Being my last year I decided to go big or go home, something that is different than a coffee table, a chair, etc. I decided to make this “Project: Ravage” a modded computer table.
     
    You may be wondering why “Project: Ravage”? Well Ravage is to “cause severe and extensive damage to”, e.g my wallet and then benchmarks. I’m 100% sure none of the judges have seen this before so I'm hoping to blow their minds away. The project has changed so many times since last November when I started to plan it, come to think of it, the first design had 780ti’s in it, which has now been replaced by 980ti’s. Table will be fully water cooled with custom tubing.
     

     
    The top of this table will be made out of Tasmanian Oak with a oil matte finish. To add to this there will be a sheet of glass over the wood top which will be laminated and toughened so it won't shatter or crack. I have always used tables with glass on the top and I like how they don't wear out or get damaged (as easily) like the timber would. This timber is light and will contrast well with the dark stained legs.
     
    The Legs are made out of 70x70 pine with a few pieces of Tasmanian oak accents. These legs will be stained a dark brown/black and then lacquered to a matte finish.
     
    For the box underneath I will be using Meranti. It’s like pine but without the knots. Its got a nice clean grain and looks like a premium timber but without the price tag. This box will be lacquered and kept with the timer look to match the table top and offset from the dark legs.
