Hi!
Nice that you check out my buildlog! This was my first post on this forum.

I'm watching LinusTechTips for some years now I know him unboxing on a bench, that's when I got my NZXT Phantom. 
But i'm not here to talk about that :) I'm here to show you how I made my entire setup and cave.

 

So I had the idea to build an entire desk with a build in pc I was saving up money for some years now to make this possible and with the great help of Corsair and EKWB.

The main idea was to make a big desk with spaces for 2 people to sit down and game, also with 2 main pc's in it. As you can see it only have one motherboard in it. I couldn't effort it, so it's more lan based now.

Also a lot of work (Almost 3years) has put into this project I hope you guys enjoy reading and watch this dirty attic becoming a modern gaming cave :)

I've ordered 14 Air Series SP140 Corsair's fans mounted them on the rads.

I know they have some especially made fans for rads, but I wanted to go with looks and I think 4 rads with pushed air will cool enough for me.

The X Room:

Now a little concept of the room.

Some stairs that will lead to a sort of stage where my bed will be and some plants. I think I would need that watering system that linus talked about in the CES because i'm bad with plants but I really like them in a room like this.

The X Desk:

Let me start from the beginning of how it was.

post-185075-0-76476200-1421284007.jpg

 

Little improvements

post-185075-0-71867600-1421284130.jpg

 

Now I wanted to have a sort of control pannel and still sort of case looking middle piece.

So I thought about this:

 

Let's cut some wood up!

post-185075-0-75779000-1421284760_thumb.

 

post-185075-0-03865800-1421284796_thumb.

 

Why are the hole's for you ask? 

Well the big one is for the nzxt fan controller, the smaller one is for the pump controller that I miss bought so its just a thing now.. :(

On top of this will be the "floating" res located

 

Let's paint it in some nice black.

post-185075-0-81704700-1421285050.jpg

 

Control panel:

Every part of the desk is individually so it's easy to take apart if there's a broken component in there (hopefully not but better save then sorry)

Middle part:

Now as the middle part of the desk, like I told you guys before I wanted it to have a sort of case looking middle part

Tell me if it kinda looks like that? :)

In the big hole the SSD's will be visible, smaller hole is just for the DVD and some usb/microsd slots.

I'm back with another update!

I'm so happy to see how many people are interested and following! Thank you guys!

I made another thread about sleeved cables.. I still need some shop/modder that makes fully costum sleeved cables. Link.

 

 

I bought some normal watertubing from the shop, because these need to go behind the desk and between the other cables of the room.

So you wont see if they damp or not. I got some more expensive tubing for the components ofcourse.

post-185075-0-72460200-1421366332_thumb.post-185075-0-42422300-1421366231_thumb.

 

Okay, so because I have more fans then the NZXT control panel can handle, I needed to extend the cables.

So we cut the plugs of and hot wired longer cables to them, I asked some help for this part because damn it was more work then expected.

post-185075-0-61721300-1421366233_thumb.post-185075-0-24954100-1421366235_thumb.

Thank you guys for helping me out!

 

After that we tested the fans.. And everything worked out! Good feeling

post-185075-0-68606600-1421366333_thumb.

 

I bought some fittings. I like the way highflow send their packages, you'll always get a lollipop! :D
