Default Water cooled tech station build

Here's my home made build I did using an old case that was kicking around the shop. This is my main PC that folds when idle. The idea came from knowing the challenges of working on water cooling systems in a tight closed case and being a tech I was aiming for something easy to work on. Also I wanted something where I could easily view the hardware that I spend my $$ on

This was a budget build and some parts were recycled from my old system (CPU, rad, pump, and PSU).

That's a very nice setup you got there. Wc'ing using HSPC-style benches is always difficult with the rad location.

It can be budget and some recycled but is freaking awesome! looking so nice for a home built tech station! If only I was capable of holding a hammer:)

Holding's not usually the problem, it's once the swinging part starts that things can go wonky.... :)

But yeah, I second your thoughts.... that's an amazing job especially considering a good portion of it came from an old case.
