Quite a busy day.

Still had to sand some plates.
Then my wife came in with a nice box.




Also an other package i ordered at Highflow



These Cubitek extension cables are 50cm, very thin and not expensive at all



Later that day i brought away my desk to the powder coater.




As curious as i am i asked everything :)

Here all the uncoated products slowly move to a man who "powders" all the hard to reach spots.



This guys :)
2 meters behind him the machine powders the rest.




It's just some sort of dry powder that normally would let go.
But because it's electrically loaded it's sticks to the product.







After that everything goes to the oven.




Here it's heated up till 200 degrees Celsius so the coat gets very hard and equal




Back home i had to unpack the BP box :)



Offcourse i want to use these on my backplate after getting such a nice box :)






Want to use these Ram Mods for under my GPU's.



Also want to use these X-stations since they are smaller and have female molex.






Cause the desk will be black soon and all my blocks are plexi, i will try these blocks in plexi too.






Same here.







And some extra and new kind of fittings, ill need them for future updates :p







Vincent and Bitspower ... really you guys RULE :p

Damn sir that is a beautiful build. You have inspired me to convert my desk into this space saving awesomeness. I will post some links to my Photobucket since I don't want to steal your thread (not that I possibly could), but thought I'd share what you inspired me to start creating. I am not done yet, I have only been working on this for 4-5 days now. It is all wood except for the base that everything is screwed into. Thanks for the great read and info dude keep up the great work.

Ya I can finally fit underneath my desk since it is only 32in long the case and wires really took up a lot of room. I can't wait to continue building and upgrading this whole thing, it's already addictive :-D

Waiting for my LEDs to come in, excited. Your build log is an amazing reference for ideas, very original bro.

Not a bad idea sir, having you follow my build log after seeing that masterpiece would be an honor, aha.

Do you use any type of fan controller?

Oh i follow like a hundred buildlogs, but off course i prefer deskbuilds :)

I only use Bitspower X-stations for the 1200rpm fans in the desk itself, they all run on 5V.
The 1450rpm fans below my floor run on 12V, so no controller needed.

Thanks man :)

Got a real nice present from Bigfoot Networks !
A Bigfoot Networks™ Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card :)
Thanks Timo and thanks for the help Xtrafris !)





"The Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card delivers maximum networking performance for online games, whether you’re playing MMOs or first-person shooters. Featuring Advanced Game Detect™, Killer™ 2100 automatically classifies and accelerates traffic to your game ahead of other network traffic for maximum online game performance and a competitive edge."

Off course i want to try that out, im really in for some on line gaming after such a year :)



Casemodder Xtrafris also sent me a K`Bling :D
Wanted to use this to mod it on the Killer™ but seems i don't have enough space.






So first with it's cap removed next to the Gpu's.
Maybe later i'll use a pci-e extender to make some space.





Think i'll just make a square hole in the gtx580 backplate for the network cable.
It's the only Pci-e 4x slot left.



Also got a 7000rpm polisher with some sort of wax from my brother-in-law.
You need to hold it tight, but the effect is perfect !

Finally !! :p



And still exciting :)




All unpacked.




Very glad i coated the Bitspower radguards in the same color.




Also the lianli backplate.



This is how it will look.
Monday ill get some new rubber tape for the desk and glass so i can lift it in the desk holder.







Before the desk goes into desk holder i first wanted to polish it, but need a new polisher first, this one had no hairs left :)

Small update.

Changed 2 fittings, looked nicer .




Sleeved some led cables, and modded the Killer 2100 in the gtx580 backplate.
(Also a beer with my neigbour :p )




Fans also in its place.




And the Ram leds in action.
Think it'll look nice in the dark.



Also made a small movie of the leds and the mess :)
