One of the most amazing scratch-built PCs we've ever seen has been completed over the weekend. Tired of heat-related issues and having a large, heavy PC, forum user L3p (also known as Peter Brands from The Netherlands) installed cutting-edge, high-end hardware and a water-cooling system into his desk.

The project, entitled L3p D3sk - Silent Workstation, began in November last year, and Peter also picked up first place in our monthly modding competition Mod of the Month too.

The desk was custom-built and L3p drilled down into his house's foundations to find a cool home for the system's huge water-cooling radiator. The incredible PC uses an Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition that's been overclocked to 4.5GHz, 6GB of Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 RAM, an Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard and more water-cooling hardware than you can shake a stick at.

L3p will be talking to us in detail about his project soon, so watch this space as there's more to come. As always, pictures say far more than words but we're sure you'll agree with us when we say: 'Wow.'

To see more of L3p's project, head over to his project log and let us know what you think of the mod in the forum.
