    I voted for l3p but I did closely examine all the other entries.

    I have a soft spot for steampunk and the craftsmanship on the Positronic Brain is exceptional. The only reason why it didn't get my vote was because I didn't really like the design. If it had a couple useless gears and the glass water tube in a more obvious place, I would have voted for it instead of l3p. :p

    Small update :p

    Had a Q-pad CT for 4 years and was still very happy with it.
    But i just needed a smaller one so ordered a Q-pad UC small.
    But somehow it doesn't registrate my mx510 and mionix anymore that good.
    Contacted Mionix and they wanted to send me a mousepad for on the plexi plate !

    Thanks Peter & Richard !

    Going to cut it this way i guess.

    [​IMG]


    And almost done !
    Still need to make the edges a little more rounded.

    Ordered something at work, they use it for small 9-30V motors on ships etc.
    Im very curious about it how it will work.
    I want to use it for the 2 D5 pumps later.

    [​IMG]


    This way i can use 2 Bulgin momentary switches to set the speed from 10% till 100%
    Also when it's powered off and on, it will remember the last speed setting.

    I agree... after reading the 9 replies to the article. It really makes me want to :banghead: . honestly the one about his keyboard? really the article was about the desk mod it's self but i guess those that can not build something as nice as thise desk mod masterpeice must find some little thing that makes the whole thing not worth while..... honestly a keyboard :shadedshu his desk -----> :nutkick: <----- their computers.

    Good job for it was a awesome experience to watch this desk from the beginning to the end!:respect::rockout::toast:

    l3p and the l3pdesk made it to the homepage on Reddit. Tons of love from redditors.

    Awesome job man. I think you just opened a ton of doors for yourself. Way to have the dedication and skills to pull this off. I'm betting your the next Fatal1ty but for custom desks. :toast:

    Now you just need to make one that is just as cool but easier to mass produce and you are gonna be a rich mofo!

    But if it was in mass production, it wouldn't be unique anymore :/

    edit: Well, the original would be, of course.

    Damn that is a fast host. I met my 800KB/s limit and bursted up to 2MB/s.

    BTW, you've got almost 2,000 votes now :laugh:

    I just can't stop, so some pictures again :)

    Ordered some extra black bolts for fixing fans to the rad.
    Also for future usage off course.

    Also got a nice package from Highflow ontvangen.

    [​IMG]


    2 momentary switches will be for "dimming" the 2 pumps.
    The 3rd is to replace the "dot illuminated" switch i use for the reset button.
    I do like the ring illuminated more.

    [​IMG]


    Also wanted to try the Bitfenix sleeved cables.
    I'll use these for the pumps too.
    Very nice and soft sleeve by the way.

    And this is all i was able to do this week :p

    You're running away with the Cooler Master Case Mod Comp (scratch builds) LOL

    While my countryman is second in the tower mods competition, just behind that Brazilian who just called him a cheater in Facebook (yet admits asking everyone he knows in Brazil to vote for him, even those who don't know anything about case modding; in my countryman's case, he asks us to vote who we think is the best, not "vote for me").


    Voted for your L3p D3sk there already. ;)

    Cause of the desk crazyness i got a lot of votes from non-modders too, so i was pretty worried :)
    So I asked Coolermaster and it isn't cheating. :)

    Thanks for your vote man :p

    I like those switches and the sleeving looks great too. BTW, somebody is catching up to you on votes. 2395 vs 2206 currently. One day left to vote, it's gonna be a close call, but I think you've got it.

    edit: Two people catching up actually. 2395 vs 2255, vs 2206

    I was about to call shenanigans that there was even audio running in that clip until I hear the zoom of the camera moving. The coin toss really put things in perspective. Excellent temperatures as well.
