CORE COMPONENT SELECTION Motherboard I'm choosing the ASRock X470 Taichi because the gear on the chipset cover match the clockwork theme. RAM As for the RAM I changed my mind and get 4 stick of Dominator Platinum RGB because of the stealth looks on the heatsink better than White Vengeance RGB Pro. REPAINTING THE WATER COOLING PART Waterblock I'm using EK Supremacy Evo Full Nickel with AM4 Upgrade Kit and decided to repaint the waterblock with copper paint and did a little bit black overspray so it looks like dirty then I add a thin layer of light scarlet and then light mask of copper again. After I finished with painting I lightly sand the surface with 1000 and 1200 grit sandpaper to smoothen the surface and add 3 thin clear spray. I also repaint the backplate with black. Radiator For the radiator I'm using Thermaltake radiator and mask the fin stack because I want them black and I only paint the radiator with copper paint because I haven't decided what kind of modification that I'm going to put on the front area and that's because I'm still waiting for the case to arrive. Fittings For the fittings I use Thermaltake fittings and did the same thing as I did on the CPU Block. COOLER MASTER PART SELECTION For the Cooler Master part that going in to this build is: Case I choose H500P Mesh because of the futuristic looks on the outside of the case. Power Supply I'm going to go with the V750 gold because it has 2 eps power cable and that going to fill the 8+4 eps power slot on the motherboard. Case Fan MF120R on the top of the case should be enough to light my case with the RGB.
Well hello there. You will know me by name Contay. This is rather late bloomer in the cmws19, but after all, I came this far. I wasn't even sure, would I compete even I registered here, but things went as they are. My original idea was to take then new Q500L (released 5/2019 in Finland) and modify it to better suit my high end, two player virtual system. During past weeks I got hold to myself and kicked things forward once and for all. As I had almost all other parts ready, except few radiators, I decided why not, after all, to compete here. Here is what I started with, basically. Sad truth is, Zenith suffered some damage and I am running some back up Taichi X399. Good thing I had spare... Complete parts list: -X399 Zenith is dead X399 Asrock Taichi -2950X Threadripper, overclocked to the moon - 8x8GB Gskill Trident Z, black and white, 3200MHz CL14 - Two watercooled Radeon VII, EK block and standard backplate. Chose to use standard backplate for more fitting look in the build. - EK supremacy TR4 block, Acrylic and Nickel -Two 280 radiators by EKWB, 30 and 45mm thick units -Four Noctua 2000rpm industrial fans, 140mm -Two Cryorig slim 140mm fans -Three Samsung 1TB 860 Evo SSD for virtual rigs storage drives -Two Samsung 950 Pro 512GB, one for native boot and other for virtual rigs as OS drive - SX350 Fusion IoMemory pcie drive, 3.2TB for native boot storage -Corsais AX1600i to power the beast -Various watercooling parts in custom loop -Coolermaster Q500L ready to be butch... Modified Modification started with simple procedure by removing dust filters from the case: Modding continued by some slight metal cutting. For slightly improved airflow, you see. Just a little from the top. And sides. And bottom. And rear. To be honest, it has less holes than it had in original shape. Of course, there had to be something to coat this thing with and I had, from the beginning, chosen the material. Custom parts would be AISI304 stainless steel, lasercut and glass blasted. Well, it was a bummer but my contact for glassblasting faded me so I had to get by with brushed surface. Parts came withing a week from order. Here are parts as they arrived. I later used spinning brass brush in powerdrill to get more matte surface. It looks slightly more industrial and less kitcheny now as it's not all shiny. Next iteration will definitely get glass blasting. Before I tore case apart once more, I had to make few test fits and drill rivet holes in the case. AS you can see, it will feature way more airflow than original design. Currently I just wait the paint get dry, literally. Posting more soon. - Contay
My goal was to build something very similar to most desks that have computer parts embedded, but with a way classier look. I also wanted to make this desk part of a furniture set, to show that a powerful PC can be easily embedded into an eye-candy living room. Thus came to be The Perfect Desk, probably the best DeskPC in the world. After several design versions, I finally came to a decision. I started cutting and drilling, painting and mounting, and it all took shape very fast. The entire building phase lasted no more than 4 days, while the waiting for parts and shopping for materials lasted way longer, summing up to a total of 2 weeks. While building it, sponsors started showing up for his project. First there was CoolerMaster, who decided to showcase their MasterKeys Pro L RGB and MasterMouse Pro L, and then several others joined, such as MSI, Plextor, Silicon-Power and SilverStone. I also needed a good low profile AIO cooler for my i7 6700K so I decided to go with a CoolerMaster's MasterLiquid ML120L RGB.
