Simulant

I'm all about aesthetics. I wanted to go for a deconstructed yet clean look. My other main focus was to integrate it into my loft space somehow and what better way then to build it into the wall. The PC is about 4ft tall and 14in wide total and sits on wood sheathing between two 2x4 studs. Each component is mounted on the sheathing with standoffs. So all the wire and things are managed on the other side of the wall so everything looks clean. Filling the loop was the trickiest part but I figured it out after a few tries. Which is why there is a pump at the bottom and top to create enough power to push the water.

Of course I would change somethings, and would like to fix some of the bends but overall I think it looks better then I imagined in the beginning and it was worth it. The best part was just doing the build itself and trying watercooling. I'm still working on the desk setup, art, and decorations.

Hope you guys enjoy it as much as i do.

Note: I know I could have invested more in performance and made a generic PC but that's not what this was about. This is a passion build and meant to be another art piece in my home that I can enjoy.
