Finally got some time to get the first computer up and running in the desk got the GPU water-block attached
and getting some nice temps under idle around 25-29 GPU and 35-45 CPU under full load jumps up to 39/40
for the GPU and around 60 for the CPU with a light overclock to 4.3Ghz for now but only have the fans
attached to one radiator as i realised i ordered the wrong length screws for the 38mm thick fans.

The GPU board. it doesn't look like much when you take the stock cooler off



Had a problem with the Water-block Not sitting flat over the GPU so after removing the block and putting it back on
i forgot the back plate...





Some low temps should be good for a decent OC

and finally what happens when you forget to clean the inside of your case for 2 months

Managed to get time to mount the HDD's for the First Computer and had time to get some photos





Also just realised that the UV lights have stopped working but few photos with the rest of the lights on







Unfortunately found out during the weekend that the glass for the top has still not been made as the Glazier has been on leave
but hoping that they work something out.
Hopefully over the weekend i will have time to install the Server and replace the UV lights and maybe get a light to put directly behind the Reservoir to illuminate the Blood Red Die as i noticed that it does not react to the UV light.. even though
the containers state that it does

Finally got the camera out of the desk to take some photos of everything under the glass.
on another note ventilation is not great going to have to address this with more fans around the desk
also the reason why the Server water cooler is sitting outside the desk anyway here are final photos
also with the last Light for the Water Reservoir
















I'd like to thank EKwaterblocks for there support during this project
