Just before I start things off, this whole idea is all started from seeing Azurites build log, it inspired me to do something of my own; So thank you sir!!

But here are just a couple of concepts. Still planning atm, all constructive criticism is welcome.

Still around a month of planning first, i want this to be a perfect desk, and every idea considered

I take it you'll be having acrylic or glass on top?

If that's the case, why not hide the psu completely underneath the visible section? If it was mounted underneath the central section with the fan drawing air from underneath, you wouldnt see it, and you could do a really nice job with braided cabling, with it only coming up in the ideal places.

Also, I think the hard drives are too far away from the motherboard. Again, I'd prefer it if they were hidden away underneath, possibly leave the SSD visible but I just dont really like the look of hard drives

I think it would also look better if you had all the hardware in the middle section under glass, then a wood cover at the sides, maybe to create draws or compartments (maybe a place to hide the psu and hard drives). That would provide a little more functionality to the desk as well.

Only ideas obviously, and it'll look amazing whatever way you do it, just think it'll look better if things are slightly more compacted than massively spread out obviously not too compacted, just not taking up the entire desk

Right, so.

No air flow between first and second bay for airflow only to go in the rad bay to minimise heat dispersion into other bay CHECK

" " To keep most dust out of the main bay CHECK

have a fill and drain port in the loop CHECK

Have psu under the bay to hide cables CHECK

Hdd's are fine were they are, will just buy a 500mm sata data, and then crimp my own sata power

LOOP ORDER

RES>Pump>rad>Rad>CPU>GPU>Res

How about having the driver around the back, as well as the PSU?

Final design, set to start next week
As far as the keyboard and mouse is concerned, that is a surprise, but all I can say is. It will not be on the desk, nor on a tray under the desk, surprise



This will have PSU, HDD, and the front IO with the misc. cables that are needed in there

Why have something this big and limit the radiator space to that of a full size ATX tower...

As for the KB/M I'm guessing you're going to have a fancy recliner chair with a swivel board with the KB/M on the board?

I'd have a bunch of reservoirs and have the water going through all of them for even more movement in the centre, plus it will fill up that empty space a bit more.
