Watercooled Desk-2X-PC: Ryzen 9 5900X and Core i5 in a water-cooled desk


From the community comes a project that integrates two water-cooled PC systems in an extremely impressive way into the desk of the ComputerBase reader, which is set in scene with the help of RGB lighting. Ryzen and Core-i, Maxwell and Ampere as well as a MO-RA3 420, more is only possible with great difficulty.

A desk and two PCs merge

With his extremely impressive project “Watercooled Desk-2X-PC”, the community member “Hilzerak” shows what is possible with the right planning and the necessary manual skills. In his detailed reader article, two computer systems are created piece by piece, which are housed in a desk. From the first sketch to commissioning.

For the realization of the desk PCs use the following components:

Um To implement the elaborate water cooling in the 2,400 × 1,000 mm desk, the author relies on components from Aqua Computer, Aquaero, EKWB and of course the Watercool MO-RA3 420. LED strips, several I/O areas and a 2,400 × 870 mm transparent ESG glass plate are just some of the impressive key data of the ambitious modding project.
