Sweet and Happy New Year to you as well
Finally a little dream comes true
After 5 years joyfully using the Samsung 245B it's time for a change.
Thought about 3 screens for over a year cause of Eyefinity and Nvidia Surround.
I could choose from:
3 x 23" Samsung 1920x1080 (3 x 24" doesn't fit)
1 x 27" Dell 2560x1440 + 1 x 17" Dell 1280x1024 (portrait)
Came to the conclusion 1 big screen with a higher pixel density works better for me.
Also cause of the viewing distance.
What i do most is surfing the internet and gaming.
So i think a 2560x1440 resolution would be great!
Really can't wait
wow, you my friend are a legend, this build is one of the best ive ever seen on the web.........
Freaking amazing build man, and I mean that, you got alot of idea's man that could end up making you alot of money. Keep up the good work.
But i think ill be a "poor" man the rest of my life cause of these hobbies
Up and running !!
Removing films, i love it !
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe ...
Took me only 10 minutes to switch the old one with the new one.
Changing the old DVI cable to a new Dual link DVI cable took me more time.
Need this cable cause of the higher resolution.
Very useful, i could start using it right away for the pics of this update.
And time for a little test ..
It really looks fabulous !
Maybe i won't be the last now anymore
Still a lot to configure, but already looks awesome.
And ready to go on again
All i want now is another Dell 17" or 19" in portrait mode (1440px) instead of the current Dell 17" (1280px)
This cause of the resolution and pixeldensity, i want it a close as possible to the U2711.
I think i'll add this to my list of special hardware of the last 15 years.
Next to the Diamond Monster 3D 3DFX 4MB and the Intel x25m ^^
Till next week
(a nice EK surprise !)
Guys i could really use some help here !

Gregor pwns !!
Oops, something went wrong here, to be continued (my bad)
I need more bling bling
Again, thanks Gregor for the lovely blocks !!
Thanks for placing me at your mod page @ Custom PC Magazine !
I really love my EK Supreme HF, would like to have the clear top though
To keep you guys updated ..
Couldn't do anything this weekend cause of 2 little problems.
First of all off course the wrong EK RAM Dominator block.
Hope i can send it back this week for the plexi version
Secondly, the Silverstone Strider ST1500 kept giving problems.
Even after replacing the fuse from a B16 to a C16.
It kept rebooting, sometimes after an hour, but also sometimes when booting.
Tried all possible combinations with the 2x 25A for all the hardware.
I could borrow an XFX Core edition 850W temporary (Nice thing btw full OC and full stress 1050 watts from the fuse)
The Strider goes RMA, ordered something else back.
Going for a "Single Rail" psu again.
Also the 2 x 80 Gb Intel X25m 1st Generation ssd's are sold.
Going to be replaced with something else too.
So next week alot of work to do.
The strider couldn't hold it
Found this at work.
I want to use it for the Reservoir, move it over the old RVS studs
This is how ill be sitting behind the desk this week
Ordered @ Highflow.
I have the Corsair AX1200 and it is a beast
Shouldn't let you down
I won one as well, my only qualm is I would have like to have seen 2-3 12v rails, but it hasn't let me down so far with 3 months of 24/7 operation on a 1039 watt load, so all is well IMO!
Man this build is absolutely amazinggggggg....I wish I had the skill to do what you did here I can't wait to see more!
awesome build!!! nice work dude!
Small update !
Couldn't wait to start yesterday.
Yep, i like the new one more .
Rather have plex.
Ordered to see what it is, green fan and a Lamptron 22mm Blue led momentary.
Looks very good. Pushing goes softer then a "real" Bulgin.
Something i wanted to do a long time.
Lets clean that up too.
And this afternoon @ the door ..
Wtf alreadyl ?!
Thanks Gregor from EKWB
No one could have told me there's a trick to hold the rubber in place ?
Totally happy again !
Thanks EK !!

Freddy van Highflow.nl
Gregor van Ekwaterblocks.com
Some new pc tools.

Nice sleeved cables.
First i thought they were made of plastic, but im glad they are aluminium.
Also nice there are 3.5" brackets with it.
Such a nasty job this ..

Another 4 hours later
Now without stud.
Gold status now
I love it, also a better flow then the other blovck

I liked the ssd's there more.
Also temporary used the plexi's from the Intel ssd, somehow i liked it.

Up and running !
Temps also lowered another 1-4 degrees compared to the old block.
Beast in his cage
And some random pics..

I love EKWB
Thinking of using 6 of these inside the desk.
(Others will remain Scythe GT's)
Thanks alot, both of you guys !
Thanks for the update!
I can't believe this. I NEED ONE SO BAD.
I will eventually get around to making this and if I succeed, I will stamp a l3pd3sk logo just because how freaking inspiring this was.
Your work has brought tears of joy to my eyes.
This is the most epic project!
I have registered and voted for you. You deserve it.
I have totally enjoyed your web site and posts here.
Wow, thanks alot guys !
These reactions inspire me for a second desk ..someday
