    My frankenpump, mcp35x inside an Alphacool DDC310 body mounted on a EK uni holder. It's awesome having a microcenter near that carries all sorts of EK goodies.

    It is now, it was a dining table :)
    The legs were chopped in half, the pull out extension leaves cut horizontally to make the sides, and the bottom fitted from some old mdf.
    The only things I bought were the corner joints and some screws.
    I'm glad to hide all the junk and wires coming from the PCs rear.
    The rad is under the table with 2x140mm fans pointing upward.

    Hehe yeah.
    I had the idea about a year ago due to the mess but had no table.
    By coincidence my Mum cleared out one of her spare rooms and offered me this.
    I was worried it would be too big but its great.
    The only slight issue was the leaves were warped but you can only tell close up.
    The PC is much quieter too and there is plenty of room to do a major mod with large silent fans.

    It changed the rooms bass response a bit so I had to fiddle with the subwoofer.
    15Hz isnt quite as strong now but at least that end of the room doesnt look like junk.
    Very happy with it.

    Hahahaha this is an awesome hack!
    The potential to make this uber quiet is nice too. You could line basically the entire inside with soft egg crate foam and mount the case on rubber bumpers. Silent heaven!

    Made some changes (still need to update my sig)... 6700K @ 4.8ghz 1.38V, Asus Sabertooth Z170S White Camo Mobo... Performance wise it was more of a side grade but cosmetic its a huge upgrade.

    Cool! Nice setup... The converter is cool... I'd never think of using something like that.

    Changed my project up a bit.
    I need something new to build, but I'm not ready to let this one go just yet :/

    Been out of the game for many years but have run a watercooled system since 1999. I've since gone from overclocking everything to the nth degree to wanting low temps, quiet operation, and a solid workstation platform for years to come. I went with the X10DAX (supports up to 2TB) and built up from there. This is primarily a photo editing/work rig but of course I game too ;)

    Btw Although this worked it was really tight and I cut/trimmed/drilled lots to make it work and I still don't have the upper radiator being cooled properly. Idle temps are ~29C on all GPU/CPU and load is about ~40C so far.

    System Specs:

    Supermicro X10DAX
    2 x Intel Xeon 2630 V4 10 core/per, 2.2ghz, 3.3ghz turbo, 40 threads)
    4 x 32GB Black Diamond ECC 2400mhz - 128gb total... upgrading to 256 shortly for quad channel -- screwed that aspect up
    2 x Titan X Maxwell 12GB in SLI
    Plextor 1TB NVME m2 pci-e
    Mushkin 1TB Reactor
    Intel X540 T2 10Gb x 2 - card glitching out and also needs a thinner heat sink to work in system
    Soundblaster Z
    Corsair AX1200 PSU

    Cooling:

    Lian Li PC-V1000LB - wanted black/black but unavailable anywhere
    Alphacool Radiators 2 x 120, 3 x 120
    PPC 2000 and 3000 fans - Impossible to install a second fan on top radiator. I plan on making a shroud for both fans and venting in from case panel
    Heatmaster II for fan control mounted to rear of mobo tray- Anyone have an english version of this software?????
    EK waterblocks for processors
    Alphacool GPX-N Titan X blocks
    Heatkiller 200 res x 2
    Aphacool pumps x 2
    Alphacool fittings

    Other info:

    Eaton 5PX 1500w UPS on workstation and server/network on a separate unit.
    Photo storage is on my HP DL380e server with a large array running vmware.
    Ubiquiti networks for 10Gb, 1Gb, router, access points, phones, security cameras

    I finally jumped onto the water wagon. Got a 750d, NZXT HUE+, GRID+ v2, and the XSPC 750 kit. Changed out some of the fittings for Monsoon's, and 2 60degree ones for the run from the CPU to the Radiator. Need to figure out where to put the temp sensor. Maybe from the CPU to the radiator? The t-fitting goes to my drain hose. Still need to clean up a few of the wires, and the back looks a mess. But, hey, it's working.

    Still plenty to tidy up along with some tube routing changes but it's up and running.

    Redid my loop because I had to swap out rads. Decided to add a long awaited drain line. As many times as I've washed out my loop, tubing, cpu block and rad, I kept forgetting to add a drain line. So when it came to me draining the system, it was a pain in the ass, so this time I didn't forget ( wifey reminded me :banghead:) . I added it so it's not in the way, but still have easy access to it.
