    I've been building and repairing PC's as a hobby for 12 years now but for the last few years I've had this idea of wanting to wall mount and water cool all my game consoles and PC. I liked the idea of having everything in one place. I need to start off by saying that i'm completely aware there is no significant benefit to water cooling game consoles, please understand that its purely an aesthetic thing for me. I love the look of anything water cooled so lets face it, at this point water cooling a potato would look pretty good to me. I was living alone with a mortgage so this dream was financially out of reach for me, moving back home recently removed that obstacle and finally allowed me to realize my dream. All up the main bulk of the project took me a few weeks to complete but 100% completion took a couple of months, for some reason its the final little things that seem to drag and take up a lot of time. The project consists of an XBOX 360, PS3, PS4 and Intel/NVIDIA PC (i5-4670k/GTX 970). Thats all cooled by a Quad, Dual and single radiator with 2 D5 pumps pushing the coolant. I'm pretty happy with the end result though if one day I happen make a new 2.0 version of it there are a few things I would change. either way I hope you enjoy.

    Hey just a tip you could try if the greeen PCB's are bothering you.  You could do like the LN2 overclockers do and use some Liquid Electrical Tape on everythign but the socket and the memory to make it all black.... I'm 99% sure that everything else would be perfectly fine since its not really going to be needing cooling!

    Description: An Idea I had for many years, financially held back from attempting it until recently. The idea was to bring my pc and game consoles together, wall mount and watercool them all.
    It's a big project and it all stays cool, hence the name "Iceberg"(first thing that popped in my head). I built it all from the ground up, basically coming up with more ideas on how to mount parts
    as i worked through. I had a rough idea in my head of how i wanted it to look but certain obstacles got in the way and I had to improvise. I was sure on a couple things from the beginning, that was
    the white and blue theme and the glowing company logos. I'm happy with the result though if there is one thing i may change in the future its the flexible tubing to hardline acrylic.

    I've been building and repairing PC's as a hobby for 12 years now but for the last few years I've had this idea of wanting to wall mount and water cool all my game consoles and PC. I liked the idea of having everything in one place. I need to start off by saying that i'm completely aware there is no significant benefit to water cooling game consoles, please understand that its purely an aesthetic thing for me. I love the look of anything water cooled so lets face it, at this point water cooling a potato would look pretty good to me. I was living alone with a mortgage so this dream was financially out of reach for me, moving back home recently removed that obstacle and finally allowed me to realize my dream. All up the main bulk of the project took me a few weeks to complete but 100% completion took a couple of months, for some reason its the final little things that seem to drag and take up a lot of time. The project consists of an XBOX 360, PS3, PS4 and Intel/NVIDIA PC (i5-4670k/GTX 970). Thats all cooled by a Quad, Dual and single radiator with 2 D5 pumps pushing the coolant. I'm pretty happy with the end result though if one day I happen make a new 2.0 version of it there are a few things I would change. either way I hope you enjoy.

    Description: The Green Molecule is a build in a Fractal Design ARC Mini R2 in which I have modified nearly every component to fit the green and white theme with the molecules twist. The best features of the build are the custom side panel window, the fully custom reservoir in the front panel and the shroud incorporating the pump and res combo into it. Check the build log for more pics.

    Build Title: White Metropolis
    Thread URL: Build Log
    Description:  I wanted a build that was if a small form factor, allowing easier transportation when LANNING without sacrificing cooling power when home and overclocking.  I also wanted to create as clean of a build visually as I could which is where the idea for this came from.  I developed a quick disconnect system from S5 to pedestal allowing me to separate the two.  The name "White Metropolis" started out because I was trying to brainstorm a name that wasn't cliche with a white build and chose it with no intention of including it in the build theme.  That all changed when I got inspired by city silhouettes.  In this build you will find the silhouettes of major cities all across the world such as Hong Kong - China, Bangkok - Thailand and Jakarta - Indonesia because of how they looked.  I've hopefully succeeded in tying all these things together in a visually appealing, high detail design.  Windows all around led for designing ideas that complement the computer no matter which side you look at it,no matter where you view it from you get a different and equally pleasing view.  Check out the log for all custom parts.

    Build Title: Grass Block Server
    Thread URL: http://www.instructables.com/id/Personal-Minecraft-Server-in-Custom-Block-Case/
    Description: I made this awhile back and have been using it to host my minecraft server/decorate my room, hits about 15W at CPU load (iGPU doesn't get used when hosting). Total build cost: ~$350
     
    Full disclosure...even I will be voting for White Metropolis.
      Note: the monitor is not hooked up to the server, it's hooked up to my more beastly rig, which is playing the hosted minecraft world.

    Description: An Idea I had for many years, financially held back from attempting it until recently. The idea was to bring my pc and game consoles together, wall mount and watercool them all.
    It's a big project and it all stays cool, hence the name "Iceberg"(first thing that popped in my head). I built it all from the ground up, basically coming up with more ideas on how to mount parts
    as i worked through. I had a rough idea in my head of how i wanted it to look but certain obstacles got in the way and I had to improvise. I was sure on a couple things from the beginning, that was
    the white and blue theme and the glowing company logos. I'm happy with the result though if there is one thing i may change in the future its the flexible tubing to hardline acrylic.
