    Project Oak

    I've always enjoyed scouring the forums looking at what other have designed and built. But it wasn't till recently i saw the L3p D3sk (Amazing btw) and it really motivated me to build my first case from scratch.

    I've gotten a pretty good chunk of the desk built already but haven't had time to start up a worklog since I've been busy moving into my new house.

    I'm settled now so its time to get at it.

    Here was the current state as of yesterday morning

    I drilled the hole in the back plate for the acrylic tube i will use to route my wires

    After cutting it to length i used some frosting spay paint

    Skipped a couple steps but here is the tube mounted and under-lit

    And Finally with the back panel in place and all the cables run

    Next up on the agenda is to completely rebuild the internals. Still rocking the comp i built in 07 so I'm way past due for an upgrade.

    Parts List
    Intel Core i7 2600k Sandie Bridge
    Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 **Updated**
    Crucial 128GB SSD
    CORSAIR PSG AX1200 **Updated**
    Asus Maximus IV Extreme
    Corsair Vengeance - 16GB

    Watercooling Components
    EK Supreme HF CPU block
    EK FC6990 GPU block **Updated**
    EK D5 X-Top rev.2
    Bitspower Matte Black Barbs
    EK Ekoolant - Blood Red

    I love these integrated desk PC's. It is form following function which looks good. Very smooth and tidy. I love the way the Acrylic tube lights up, and the way you have the monitors and TV mounted as if they are floating.

    I dig adding the wood accents to the computer internals, including the CR2025, lol, a nice touch.

    That's all great stuff you've got going in there too. You've got something to be proud of, and you can eat a steak off it at the same time!
