    Start this back in October, i worked on it and posted progress on here for afew weeks. Then due to college work and money, i had to pause construction. Now though, i've finished it and feel it's ready to be released. Also, i had neons in the desk, but they broke recently, so im doing without. On the picture of the draw below the motherboard, there is a fan at the back. And, on the desktop picture with all the scores and temps, thats underload. Usual idle temps are 23/27 for the CPU and 38 for the GPU.

    Special Thanks to all the people who helped me through this.

    I may redo the front, but i would have to have the panel special made. I didn't buy this desk, it was made for me.

    Thanks for the replies guys. And im not sure about a tutorial, theres just so many different ways.

    You got a 10/10 here.

    One of the coolest, best thought out mods I have ever seen!

    Ah, thanks for everyone who voted decently (5/10?.. ok).

    I'll be deleting this and putting up a V2 soon, so keep an eye out.

    I have a strange feeling that the new desk will display a 4870 crossfire setup alongside a e8600 ;)
