    Project : L3p D3sk

    Hi there

    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

    Project : L3p D3sk

    End of the first long day

    Creating a logo (was just a try, worked out well)

    Made some holes for the lcd's for the in and outgoing water temperature, and for the logo

    Had to make some changes to let my knees fit

    Fitting the trays with sound isolation under it.

    I love packages !

    Thought the buttons would the same, gonna change for 2 big one's now.

    Sound isolating for under my trays.

    My best friend welding
