Sure, if you think you can pull it off, i think having it in kits would be easier to ship them around than to preassemble everything

Update #12 Almost done painting :o

 

 

I almost ready to assemble the desk. I have all the hardware ready and waiting for the paint to dry. I started to sleeve some of my pump cables and waiting on the other parts to start really hammering on them. I have something really special in store with the paint on the top - in total with clear it will be around 8 layers of paint :D

Some very nice work working skills on display and some sexy auto's too!     Will the top glass over hang to the outer front edges?

Thanks :) The glass has been made so it perfectly matches the desks frame - it toll overhang the knee notch that I made. So the keyboard and  mouse are not obstructing the view of the system

Stress Testing the GPUs before they get there water blocks. - 1440p Furmark running at 1800mhz (gpu boost) non overclocked at 73c at a stable 125fps. I tested each card one by one to make sure I got similar results - each car ran for 1 hour before being swapped.

That's a great work for the first timer man! The combination of the colors are nearly perfect. Was that coolant cryofuel? By the way, nice and clean plumbing...

Yes it is. Its EK CryoFuel Navy Blue PreMix - just about 2 gallons worth of fluid in total. Thanks The Gpus look much better pictures being posted

Update # 16 It's Alive!!!

 

 

Massive Update - 

 

I got both loops built and leaked tested both of them for couple of days. I have had trouble bleeding these loops since I did not plan very well and would do things differently in the future.  I did finally get my pc booted and amazingly it detected everything on the first try. I have posted some basic numbers right now with no loads as I am still tinkering with the fan profiles and the pumps speed.  I hope you enjoy some of these pictures.

 

Note - A lot more to come - still need to cable manage, install cable mod cables, install glass, install monitors and finally the final touches. 

 

What are your thoughts so far?

 

 

Base Line Temps - No Overclocking

Note - Pump was at 45% and no radiator fans were spinning at time of taking

 

Ambient - 23c

 

Threadripper 1950x - Idle w/ No fans - 28c

 

GTX 1080Ti - Idle w/ No Fans - 26c on both cards
