I'm quite new in the casemodding world, but since they liked my build at several sites i wanted to post it here too.
First i want to introduce myself here and tell how i got this idea.
Im Peter, 30 years old and im from the Netherlands.
Im pretty new in the casebuild and watercooling world.
Started with my first 486 when i was 14, always been a hardware addict.
But 2 years ago i had heat problems so started reading about watercooling.
I got totally addicted, but then the next problem came with that.
Lifting my 34 Kg case 8 times a day wasn't that good for my back.
And at the same time i needed a new desk.
My other build came to an end and didn't know what to improve.
Really want to thank Pascal for his pc-in-a-desk idea. After seeing it I couldn't even sleep that night
Im busy with this build for 8-9 months now, did the most in the 3 week vacation i had.
Did all the rest after my 50 hour/week job.
Taking a rest now, but got a lot of pics to show
I started sketching it with Google Sketchup
After 9 hours of non-stop drawing it finally had some shape.

I want to let it be powder coated in mat black.
I'm also gonna use my old cooling again since it works superb.
It's a 1080 radiator under my floor from my house, right in the corner where my pc is.
My water temperature in wintertime is around 17 degrees, in the summer it's around 23 degrees.
