euzel42wow i like your desk more than anything! its a super awesome corner desk. the PC build looks really good as well!
Nike_7688OK, so these are old pictures (~2-3 years old), but show the desk a bit better. Everything but the case has changed in my computer build lol. Also, various states of clutter. Wooden top finished, test-fitting on the freshly welded steel legs at the wood-craftsman's house (look at how beautiful the shelves are too):Legs packed up, on their way to powder-coating (completely accidentally planned (luck!) the sizing perfectly so they just barely fit into the trunk of my car):Installed into the corner (I believe that's an EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 in there):He also made me a matching shelf for the wall above, which now holds an old collection of knick-knacks from various travels:I bought some real black-painted steel brackets for it...not for weight capacity, but just to match the aesthetic of the desk. They may actually be themselves heavier than the shelf. Updated with some of the newer stuff, but still pre-dark-water-upgrade: Speaking of furniture for a second, I feel like it would be remiss to not talk about the table I did the upgrade build on (I puta big towel under the build not really for the water, but mainly not to add scratches to my awesome table). It is our dining room table, but was also hand-built by a guy in Vermont from wood that came from the crates that Switchback Brewery received their bottling equipment in from Europe. I believe it was Pine from Germany, shipped to Italy where they made the bottling equipment that was shipped to Burlington, Vermont. That artisan's shop is basically across the road from the brewery and he saw all the wood and ran over there to see if he could make something with it. Ta-dah:Maybe not the best picture, but it shows the top pretty well. The bottom has an espresso stain/paint on it, but is also parts of the crating wood. There are a couple small holes in the legs where pegs/bolts were fitted during the previous use. He also built us a matching bench, but I don't want to take this too far away from the computer build lol. If anybody is in New England and wants the contact info for one of my wood-working artisan friends, let me know.
euzel42 that's super awesome. i do not have any tools to build a desk like this nor space haha. just have to live with what I can get from Walmart lol
Nike_7688Sooo...I'm currently less than 3 minutes away on the 3080 Ti Hybrid FTW3 (~2 minutes and 45 seconds, but who's counting). I had previously just assumed I was done with this build and I've been super happy with it, but then the 3080 ti came along (which I thought I was going to skip) and after talking it through with the wife and thinking about how far off the 40-series probably is...I decided to go for it (she was all ""). So then I got looking at my system and figured "how am I going to shoe-horn another radiator in here?" and came up with this plan (using an in-process picture from during the current build): I think the radiator is no more than 28mm thick. There's no specs on the web-page for this (come on, EVGA, help me out here). There are specs for the 2080 radiator, which I have, which is 27.5mm thick, so I'm assuming the new one is just the 240mm version of that. From looking at the 23mm pass-through fitting I have on the lower right of the image above, I should have room to put that radiator on the front here. The tubes that come out and go to the GPU are pretty small and I think they'll actually run under the HD-cage/pump mount. I can remove part of the PSU shroud on the right to accomodate for the bottom of the rad and I can adjust fans however I want really. I just don't see how I can fit the tubes where I have them and then put a radiator over there. The main reason the tubes are on the right side of the case now is because the 2080 hybrid's radiator was on the exhaust port at the back of the case. With that gone and just a fan there (which I could...and might actually put a filter on and make another intake), I should be able to run the tubes on the left. I just need to shorten the one that goes from CPU to the radiator. I think the other one might be long enough as is because I left some service-loop in it for draining things. I have some spare tubing that I've also been using to drain the loop, but I can make a longer section if I need to. Further, based on the fact that I'm going to have the GPU-rad fans be the intake to the case now, I think I'll be running them at a higher speed than would normally be required to feed the CPU rad with more air. To save power draw on the GPU, I'm wondering if I can hook up my fan controller (which is just a PWM pin really, power is supplied separately via SATA power connector) to the GPU's Aux Fan header, then running the two radiator fans and the rear case fan into the fan controller, which would then be controlled by the fan profile in Precision. I currently have the intakes/controller running off the motherboard's aux fan header, which can only be controlled by system or CPU temperatures. I'm curious if anybody has any feedback or suggestions on this plan. Please feel free to make suggestions. Another question I have is whether or not it would be worth it to try and squeeze in a fan on the back-side of the radiator so that half of it is push/pull. I couldn't fit one at the bottom as it'll be small clearance between the rad and the pump-mount/HDD cage, but I might be able to fit a fan at the top right next to the reservoir. The only issue is I wouldn't have one that is the same speed as the fans that come with the radiator, so it would be slow.
wmmillsLove that table. The top almost looks like butcher block, but the big steel box rails all around and for legs was a awesome touch. Even if you dont use it with computers it would make a great garage work desk. Does it weigh a ton?! Great Job all around!
notfordmanPretty nice build. Do you plan on putting your GPU on water? You already have a nice start for your loop. Of course not a have to thing, just curious. The desk probably looks much better than pictures, even though looks real nice. Thanks for posting, and showing your project off. I like the rig name as well.
