Hi everyone,

After building my first desk build, I decided to make a new desk but then of STAINLESS STEEL.
After quite a few desks to have viewed with as great example the l3p desk of Peter Brands, I have created a design.
The desk is made with the help of my father and BOS Machine Construction from the small village where I live called Urk.:)
Because they like my build in the Netherlands, I will also post it here.

Using some of the pictures I'll show you the build, and sorry for my bad English I hope it gets better.:D

Time for some coolant parts, love EKWB.
The 4 x 120 radiator is sponsored by my brother. Thank you:)












Ready for some bending.



This is really a handy tool for the ends of your tube, no sharp edges.






There is a start, now comes the more difficult part the connection between the CPU and Mosfet Block.







For the loop in the back of my tray I have flexible hose used so that I can play with the pump easier.



Time to fill.



The most beautiful part of the loop. 😄













The Corsair HX1200i exchanged for RM850. 😄









The cables extended with an extension kit from Cablemod.







A nice PCI-E Gen 3.0 extension cable of Li-Heat Industry.



And some extension cables for my fans.



Here some action shots.









The power supply I have mounted under the desk, I did this to get a better flow in my rear section.



And the corsair link commander in the system to an easy overview of all temperatures and speeds.



The rear four fans are with the Lamptron FC5 operated.





And for finish a nice metal plate of Black mesh 😄



And of course a RGB LED strip can not be missed. First I made a diagonal of aluminum and the LED strip is attached with 3M tape, and mounted on the front of the desk.So it does not shine in your eyes.

Here the final shoot , have fun 😛



































See you next time 😄

What is the tool you showed for the nice clean finish it put on the EK tubing I like it! Where did you buy it? And will it work on other sizes besides the 10/12mm tubing? Great looking build I would like to do one of these myself I have great welding skills, but I think I would do it with legs instead of the wall mount don't get me wrong it's still a great option done very well !!!!!

it is called a deburrer, but I find it quite pricey. He is available for 12-13mm and 16mm, i bought it here.
