    Hi everyone,

    Like some of you may know,i made the thor desk last year 2013(wich got me the build of the week on linustechtips)

    5)Extra Compartment for poweradapter with 10 connectors ,Router,and External HDD's)
    6)SSD mounting cage (build into the Wall of the desk)
    7)Usb Connection on the outside of the Case(i have to see with that when i get further along)
    8)Cutom Acrylic Motherboard tray wit LED
    9)New Fans From Corsair (Corsair AF 120 LED blue)+
    10)Vandal Power and reset Button
    11)Drain and Fill Port ( A must have on any watercooling Pc,makes Live alot easyier)

    Here are the radiator mounts (since i wanted to put in some extra cooling,
    240 and 360 EK PE Coolstream side by side,since they are quite slim i was abler to put the in the small compartment where the powersupply will be.

    And I already shortened the legs ,since i want to be able to mount 2 extra 24" screens on top of the 2 x 27",
    so i dont want to have the setup to high,took off 10cm .

    I needed one drill bit,
    bought the one ,but ended up with a whole set extra,with about a hundred bits ;)

    Started on the interior of the compartment under the Desk,power adapter installed(but still have to route the cable somewhere nice)
    and lightning adapter mounted on the wall as well(this will be much cleaner than the previous Thor D3sk V1)
    [​IMG]


    Doing some work on the Thor D3sk,Cablemanagement holes,for the 24pin,8pin cpu,and 4 8pin Pcie,
    altough i think i will have to change the Pcie hole because i am not sure exactly where i will route them exactly.

    Hey everyone here a small gadget that just arrived,
    since i am still waiting on the powersupply i will just be waiting and stocking up on tools,

    Well now for the Gadget,this is the GOverlay LCD display,fully programmable.
    I was looking for a small display on ebay (because i like to see the status on my Heat of the Cpu Gpu ,)so after some browsing and searching around,i stumbled on this .

    It is fully compitable with AIDA64,and hardwaremonitor,and you are able to get a lot of other
    Plugins,
    It also has a gaming mode,wich means when you enter sertain games it will show you certain information about that game,
    best application to make use of this will probably be Need for speed,the hwole display can become a Speedometer.

    I hope to bring some more build updates soon,
    Keep you posted,thank you for checking out my log.
    Stay tuned.

    I must say I was a bit skeptical about light lacquered wood and dark themed components, but the contrast actually looks nice even when brightly lit ... I pronounce myself aesthetically pleased

    hey everyone,

    I thought i might share this with you,
    like you should know if you have read the beginning of this log,
    that i have 2 asus 7970 DC2,

    well a few days back i thought i try something,
    thought i wmight try to flassh the bios to a 280x bios,
    And well after a few different tryouts,well i finally found one that was semi stable,
    after a few tweaks and driver changes,welll
    it works like it is supposed to be a 280x.
    And overclocked way above its stock speed.
    here are a few pics and benchmark scores.and believe me this was well worth it :)
