  1. Before I show the final pictures after both systems were flooded here are the full specs: System 1: Ryzen 7 2700x CPU MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Mainboard MSI Vega64 Airboost OC graphics card XPG 16GB Spectrix D40 DDR4-3000 MHz RGB RAM XPG Gammix S11 480GB M2 SSD Alphacool XPX CPU Cooler Alphacool GPX-A GPU Cooler Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Balancer Alphacool Eisbecher Helix Balancer Alphacool Eisbrecher Radiator Alphacool XT45 360mm Radiator Alphacool VP655 Dual Pump Cooler Master V850 Gold Power
  2. Finally a few more holes for the loop needed to be drilled. For marking the right spots I've used an Alphacool Laserpointer-fitting: Another holes was need at the left side of the bridge: Balancer, Sensors and some more LED-Stripes were installed: And finally I was bending the last hardtubes and completing the loop for the 1st system:
  3. Next was installing everything needed into the left compartment: Starting with a Cooler Master V850 Gold Power Supply which was installed into another holder into the middle compartment: Next some more lighted "drive-packages" into the showcase at the left slated plate: Tray, Mainboard, Graphics card and another Cooler Master Masterfan SF360R ARGB were installed into the compartment and cabled:
  4. After the Intel/Geforce based system was now working it was time to take care about the already temporary used 1st Ryzen/Radeon based system. The following Components were used for this one: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Mainboard Ryzen 7 2700x Processor 16 GB XPG Spectrix D40 DDR4-3000 MHz RAM MSI Radeon RX Vega64 Air Boost 8G OC graphics card XPG Gammix S11 480GB M.2 PCIe Gen3x4 SSD as a boot drive Alphacool Eisblock XPX CPU cooler Alphacool Eisblock GPX-A graphics card cooler After this system was already in use airco
  5. Finally I've flooded the 2nd system and brought it into operational condition:
  6. Last component added before I flooded the system was an Aquacomputer Farbwerk360 RGB-controller. In my personal opinion the best RGB-controller avaiable on the market. Up to 360 adressable LEDs could be controlled by it (4 channels - each can control 90 lights). Also up to four temperature sensors and one flow sensor could be attached also. Using the aquabus-interface it can connect to all other Aquacomputer-products like pumps, fan controllers, and so on. But it also works great as standalone device by connecting it to an USB port. RG
  7. Just in time as I was getting ready to flood the 2nd system the components from Cooler Master arrived: So I started to adding them to my build: I've installed a V750 Gold Power Supply into the already prepared holder: I've cabled it and also installed an USB 3.0 KVM Switch with 4 ports into the middle compartment. This has given me the ability to use mouse, keyboard, the RGB-mousebad and my Elgato Stream Deck together on both systems. Simply need to press a but
  8. Instead I worked on another lighting effect for the showcases by using some el-lighting foils, corresponding inverters, some transparent colored foils normally used for theatre spots, leftover tinted plexiglas from the matrix cover and some 3D-printed stencils. I combined them all together with my SSD/HDD drives to create some lighted "packages": I've placed them then into the showcase area of the slanted plate and conneted it to the power circui
  9. To complete the loop for the second system I needed to connect it with a pump. First I thought about using one pump in each of both systems. But as the length of the loop for the 2nd system got a bit excessive (all in all around 8 metres with 3 balancers inbetween and containing close to 5 litres of fluid) I decided to be on the safe side and using a dual-pump setup. Therefore I've modified two Alphacool VPP655 pumps (D5) with an Eisdecke Dual Pump Cover. Then installed it into the lower mi
  10. I've added the card and also another balancer and continued with the loop and some preparations for the cabling: Down from the bridge through the back technical compartment: From behind into the balancer: From the balancer then into the graphics card, then into the 1st Radiator, from there to the CPU, then into the 2nd Radiator and from there down into the sparkling water column:
  11. Before I continued the loop into the inner right compartment I needed to prepare the graphics card: For this system I used a MSI GeForce RTX2080 Duke 8G OC and installed an Alphacool Eisblock GPX cooler on it:
  12. Next step was working on the "bridge" to connect it to the middle section. As the loop is invisible by traveling through the middle part I've decided to use soft tubes there. This was also for safety reasons as the liftable section with it's cables is going up and down there and I didn't wanted to risk that hard tubes would be damaged and causing a leak. For making the connection to this section I've used some bulkhead fittings together with regular soft tube ones: The bridge is not only con
  13. After the deskplate was finished a very last thing was missing before I've started with the loops. The second custom sparkling balancer. So same procedure again: And some intensive leak-testing: For working on the loops I first drilled some more holes into the desk: From the top right container down into the bottom compartment: And one from the down right compartment into the middle section
  14. As the deskplate now was prepared I was able to sand, crape, prime and paint it: Again only some pictures from within the whole painting-process: As a sidenote: Between painting the deskplate and letting it dry I've pimped up the environment for the desk in the living room a bit by adding some Nanoleaf light panels and a holo-projector to the wall:
  15. For completing the deskplate and finishing the woodworks on the project still something was missing. Two slanted wooden plates needed to be added for completion. These slanted plates were supposed to be the showcase for additional SSDs and HDDs and also housing some 7" touchscreens for displaying system stats. Originally I've planned to use two touchscreens, one for each side within these plates. But really in the last minute before I started preparing the second plate for housing it
