Custom Desk with Integrated PC

I started making this desk back in 2011 in Alaska and finished it in 2012 when I moved back to Wisconsin. I got the idea for this design from looking at many other similar designs I found online. The hardware is a bit outdated now but here are the initial specs from when I finished the build. 

  • Intel DP55KG Extreme Motherboard
  • Intel Core i7 2.8Ghz Processor
  • 16GB Patriot RAM
  • 1TB Hard Drive
  • 32GB Solid State Drive
  • 1GB Radeon 5850 Graphics Card
  • LG Bluray and DVD drives
Completed 3D design of the final product
This was the cutout design for a single 4' x 8' sheet of aluminum
I had a metal fabrication company cut out the parts and weld them together
This is the housing for the power supply and coolant pump
Loading up the welded frame and body to take home
Cut out the holes for the cooling fans (8) and rear panel
The housing unit needed holes cut out for cable/tubing access and the two temp/flow sensors on top
Coolant tank with in-going and out-going temp/flow sensors
Frame and legs all polished up
Dry-fit everything before finishing up
Radiator installed and ready for connections
Tempered glass-top installed
First start-up, everything's working!
UV light makes the coolant glow nicely
Liquid cooled CPU
