    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)
    After using the desk for almost a year now,i thought to myself,lets make some changes(since there were some things i always wanted to change,
    and i wanted to do it with acrylic Tubing)

    So i will be sharing that process with you,i hope you will like it,i certanly love doing it ;)

    ToDoList:

    1)Lower the legs
    2)More Radiators,for better cooling
    3)Acrylic Tubing (A must have if you have done it before)
    4)All the fittings alike(the last time i went with what i had,EK,Bitspower and koolance)now only bitspower
    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)
    12)And probably find some more ideas as i go (wich i will of course keep you posted on)

    SSD:2 x 120GB Samsung 840 pro RAID0,2 x 120GB Corsair Force LS RAID0,
    FANS: Corsair AF 120 Blue Led,Corsair SP 120 High flow,

    WaterCoolingSpecs:

    GPU:EK DCII Block
    HDD:Bitspower Silver shining,
    RES:Bitspower 350ml Clear pexi
    FITTINGS:primochill Revolver Silver
    ADAPTERS:Bitspower 90° Silver shining,Bitspower 90° single rotary Silver shining,Bitspower black extenders,Bitspower Plexi T Adapters,
    TUBING:primochill 10mm ID / 12mm OD,Shackemodz 10mm OD/12mm ID,

    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 .

    SSD Drive Cage for the 2 Corsair drives (in Progress)

    And i came to a conclusion ,
    its dabgerous to go shopping :)
    I needed one drill bit,
    bought the one ,but ended up with a whole set extra,with about a hundred bits ;)

    here are the parts in progress for the compartment under the desk,
    had to put on some Wood dye,so the colours match.'

    Working on the Door for the Underthedesk Compartment for router and power adapter.
    This will be the door handle.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Under the Desk compartment almost done (on the Thor D3sk)

    Some Detail work left.And maybe integrate some more ideas.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    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.

    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 :)

    And some more led for ram and cpu block :)

    Hey everyone,

    Well i started the weekend on buying some Black acrylic 3mm thick,
    and started on the construction of the cover inside the desk,

    Hey everyone,

    Here is a short Video i made onn how i play /sit in front of the desk,
    since this is actually something people are interessted in knowing,hopefully this explains/if not feel free to ask.

    No it is not Uncompfortable,although my legs look a bit crushed on the video,
    usually my chair isn't that high and my arms rest on the desk(wich was not realy an option while recording)

    Second reason for making this video,
    To try out my skills with Adobe premiere pro,
    realy like the programm,But still lots to learn,(please don't judge)

    Enjoy the Video ,any tips on editing are very much apprichiated :)

    Well,after trying to record the video wich i was preparing (all except the battery) wich kinda failed,but i might be able to scrap the unboxing together.(let's hope so)

    I finally got the motherboard all up and running on the "testbench".
    Everything looked good (since i didn't install a radiator in the loop the test wasn´t going over night.
    but if there would have been a mature leak it would have been NOW.
    But i will leak test for at least 12 our´s once all is in the Desk.

    Here are some Pictures (By the Way this stuff looks so much better in person than on Photos,realy great quality)
