Hey all and welcome to Project Black Desk (Couldn't think of a better name).

Should have made a start to the build log a few months back when i started but here we are starting today. So to give you an idea of the extent of the build, I am constructing a new desk to house 2 separate computers, one for Gaming and the other as a small home server. the desk itself has is a 200mm high tub that will have a glass top and house 2 computers one on either side of the desk and in the middle all the HDD's from both computers. On display will also feature water-cooling reservoirs and multiple temperature LCD's. The Water cooling of the rig will Chanel down under the desk into 2 large radiators that will be housed inside a tiny fridge to keep the water temps down around 0-10 degrees Celsius. this will cool a Sli setup and also the CPU, possibly cool the server too still undecided. so far i have completed most of the desk top minus the paint and a few holes for cables, venting and the watercooling.
