Has anyone built a "desk pc" on here and had any issues with RF or EMF interference? It would be interesting to see if the pumps or PSU cause any kind of interference. I would like to build something similar, albeit smaller, and was wondering if I would put my wifi router on top of the glass table top, would there be any issues?

 

I wonder if Linus has experienced any issues? It would be nice to here from him after using this desk for a while now.

 

Anyone?

What is this cabble name? Where can I find it?

 

It is connecting the videocard to the motherboard, right?

 

Thx!

Its specifically a lian li riser cable. You can get it directly from them for 65ish dollars. Just email their customer service. If your doing the same kind a build, this is perfect. Most riser cables are straight extensions, but this one has a 90 degree angle on the end, making the final turn into the graphics card easier.

Short question about the loop: The float diagramm -which is only shown short- :I you seems like it would be only one loop and the pumps are very close to each other (only separated by one reservoir). Is that correct? And how did you attach the pumps to the system? You showed the pwm hub for the fans, but what about the pumps? How are they connected?

Could any explain to me exactly how the GPU was mounted? I understand that I would need to use a riser cable but was wondering exactly how the PCB is fixed into place, does it already have holes in which I can easily fit screws or bolts into in order to create a custom mount?

slightly too big screws, so that they bite into the pcb just a little, and then those are mounted to screw inserts. That's what it sounds/looks like he did.
