    Thumbs up Raz3r D3sk




    Been busy lately with cleaning up and refreshing the original 'L3p D3sk'. (Yes it's still alive!)

    Since Cross is completely tested .. well .. I have an empty prototype here.



    So I thought .. why not create my own ultimate gaming and overclocking dream.
    This time with a fully acrylic pipe loop, Bitspower fittings and .. off course in UV green.
    Also moved the desk to my 'modcave'.



    Will use a lot of components from previous projects and ... ALL fittings I have here + some extra.
    Going to do what I love to do .. just fool around with UV and play with the loop



    There will be some surprises in this build



    The outcome may differ from the renders.
    Also please don't post pictures from my facebook here, it might be ahead sometimes from the buildlogs

    Thank you for following this project

    I already got the question a few times "Already have an update?" and "When will it be finished?"
    No idea, I'm not competing in casemod competitions. (Wouldn't be fair with all the sponsoring imo) and
    I do this as a hobby next to 2 jobs and a family.
    So I'll be looking for a spot to do something constantly as the other 3 'things' are more important.
    And also the question "Why so many sponsors?"
    No idea, they just want to help on this project. Would you say no?
    It's certainly no full sponsored build by the way, had to save up for it bigtime.
    Anyway .. I'm happy, they're happy .. hopefully you too
    Preparing this build started very slowly even before the Parvum build.
    So testing and choosing certain products.


    Different kinds of UV green acrylic.




    And off course some tests with Mayhems coolant/dyes.




    The fans, Gelid Wing 12 UV Green






    and some UV lights added.






    One of the best packages I ever got.




    But more about that an other time




    It's about the different Radguards I'm going to use now.




    Will be using the acrylic version behind the aluminum to create an illuminated edge.




    Works great with the UV leds on it




    Meanwhile playing around with a DSLR from a colleague.
    Finally after 3 years got myself a Canon 600D!




    Best looking radiators I had in my hands till now.
    Thanks Martin!










    The Cooler Master V1000's, Lamptron CW611's and the ssd's from previous projects.




    Got one of these in my own pc now too. JonnyGuru approved






    2 controllers for 2 separate pc's.








    So .. lets play with the rads, fans and UV leds.




    The effect I want to have. Still need to get a lot more UV/blue ledstrips.




    Stickers gone.




    24 x M4 hex bolts later. (For just one rad)






    I have hidden one small UV ledstrip inside the Radiator.




    Still in doubt if I'm also going to use a ledstrip all around the desk aiming downwards.
    Will do good to the rest of the UV active material.




    The 'double' Radguards.






    The ones in the back will need to be modified because there are no 480 acrylic radguards.




    Lovely to work like this :P



    Till the next update!

    Will be a challenge then nemo :P

    Here another small update including some products which I will have to show in front off course.


    Playing around with different acrylic ideas and samples.






    And ... the Bitspower package.




    Vincent .. you're awesome!



    For the full unpacking please click below.




    Here the package from ASUS Benelux






    And some products from previous projects.






    Total picture.




    Thanks Sven/TL!




    Best looking mainboard I've ever seen.




    First package arrived from Highflow.nl




    Lovely thing to do in the sun.






    Sometimes you'll even have to sacrifice your 30 minute break at work
    Nice tools that I don't have at home.








    Lovely day and place to work






    And a lovely day of blocking.










    Don't want to see any more heatpads






    I just love clear acrylic.




    First test with the acrylic.




    Thinking of adding a layer of black vinyl or removing the rubbertape on the desk and re-attach it on the acrylic.




    And the second package from Highflow.nl.
    Thanks Red Harbinger & Freddy!




    Made them shine a little more. (They were fully frosted)




    Another night of mounting.




    Love it!

    oh, man! nice covers for the mobo, and those gfx... wow man. maybe a 1200w psu just to be safe? lol. infact dare i say 1500w. those 690's are 300w each, and 195w for the single gpu. mind you this is before overclocking.

    Well I thought 2x CM V1000 per system (Seasonic inside) should do the trick?

    Will try to do an update every week

    First a package from Dimastech




    Including some small accessories.




    Made these pics a while ago but it's a lovely thing for quick tests and setups!






    Also came in contact with Andrzej from DXRacer.net.
    We both agreed it would be nice to cooperate on this project








    Very important.




    A very sturdy laptop arm to attach to the chair..




    Something I have other plans for




    Back to the chair.






    Almost there.








    I was so curious .. I just had to try it out.




    And .. it works




    'Throne Of Games'




    But something I was much more curious for.
    Had to get my crowbar for that.






    So happy here




    So lets drill.




    And mount it on my Saturday evening.






    Soo so happy












    And take some time to chill from the other mod-chair

    And an other small update.

    More playing around with dye.






    Also received some more purple(UV) and blue SMD LEDstrips.
    Most important are the long ones that will go all around inside the desk.





    Thanks Clenn!





    And more playing around with the future setup.




    Also planned a day with Sander (Asphiax) from ModWithMe for something really awesome.




    a 'Shroudres'!




    Because this is a prototype with some 'minor design mistakes' (Not Sanders's fault) we made a nice day of it to get it working inside this desk.




    The fans do need a little adjustment




    Klik op onderstaande foto voor meer info:




    And some more tests needed for the future




    One of those is a comparison of the TFC Admiral 360.
    There was some confusion about the performance of it.




    So for the interested...







    And here something we've been working on on the background for a while with Red Harbinger.
    A stainless steel reservoir cover.




    I also wanted to use this idea in my own project.




    That's how I got in contact with TFC.
    They have the ability to laser round stainless steel pipe.
    This is the design we came on.




    So a few weeks later the first prototype.






    Off course still needs some work.




    And a teaser from the Red Harbinger cover

    It has been a while since the last update.
    After 3 years I was finally able to meet the Red Harbinger team.
    So .. a trip to Texas and after that off to Blizzcon - California.

    For who wants to see some photos and video, click the picture below




    When I got home this was waiting for me.




    Thanks Corsair!
    These will find their place in this project together with the ssd's from previous projects




    Shakmods already offered me a few times to do custom cables for projects.




    Well this is the perfect project for it, so a few weeks later.




    Need quite long and thick extensions for the benchtable.














    I think they're awesome!



    Thanks Shakmods!





    And further on planning with the benchtable.
    Also wanted to do something with the ssd's again. Maybe I'll completely remove the housing..




    First saw some acrylic.




    And attach the benchtable to the arm.




    Still able to disconnect the benchtable easily.




    And adjusting the acrylic some more.




    Shouldn't be using the jigsaw after 20:00
    Wakes a certain person that wants to help but who I have to disappoint




    So in all silence ..






    And an idea for the ssd's.




    ModWithMe who's willing to help with a first setup with his new laser.




    On to the next update!

    Nice homage to Razer Corp.

    Although the little one in your photos so desperately wants to help you, please give her something to do. Nothing worse than at that age, the one she loves the most, avoids any possible help from her. Believe me that stays with you for the rest of your life.

    Hence find something for her to do that helps you and reward her with lots of hugs and kisses. She will remember that always. I know putting together a functioning PC is important but having the ones that love you, feel valued and cherished - is far MORE important.

    I know haha, it was kind of a joke. However after 8 ... she should really go to bed and sleep .. and I should be more silent
    She's a littlebit too young to help. But she does play on the attic where I'm modding every now and then.

    She LOVES the RGB remote controller with LEDS built into the desk for example

    And a small update for the weekend.




    Little check how the cables would look like.




    And bad news :/
    I won't be able to use the prototype ShroudRes, at this point it's just to much of a risk, hours and adjustments to get it working right. Will be using a ShroudRes in a next project though.
    But .. found a way to have more cooling and in the same style as the other rads.




    Because the mainboard is on the left side of the desk I don't have the space for an extra Admiral + fans.
    So came up with something else




    A 45mm radiator + fans in an Admiral housing




    Also the acrylic SSD covers arrived from ModWithMe.




    Removed the laser dust as good as possible.




    After messing around for an hour with different pipes, spacers and nuts in different sizes I found something else. Rubber fan mounts from TFC.




    I love Friday evenings.






    Slide em in.




    Works perfectly with the rubber corners












    And some UV light from different corners.












    Thanks ModWithMe!




    Somehow I like them a lot in daylight.

    Here an update of a little side project already running for 9 months
    It's a pretty long story with a lot of photos but will try to keep it short.

    For this project I wanted something else then the standard fangrills.
    Did see the MNPC Overkill guards a few time, but when you need 2x 360 and 2x 480, that's like $600.

    So .. Scott Bruins (Red Harbinger designer) and I decided to have some fun.
    This is what he came up with (Scott's awesome! )




    This is what came out after a lot of tweaking.




    Few tests in front.




    And, what we thought, a final design. Back then still with a closed front. About 7 months ago.




    But .. you still need to know someone with a CNC who is willing to do it.
    Off course Ivo (The guy that CNC-ed the MARSII block) loved the idea joined us, he could use a few himself too.
    And he also happen to have some nice 120x10mm bricks of aluminum.
    First he had to edit the design again since the current one didn't fit the 120x10mm.




    But no problem.




    And we're on the way for 5 months








    Again no problem.




    Ivo is pretty happy with them himself too.
    If you look carefully you can see a pretty weird GPU in his pc




    Once at my place .. totally love them!




    First fit.




    Wanted to see them on the 'Raz3rator' too. Also added a small UV ledstrip.




    And quickly polished the 360
    Hmm ... all I need now is acrylic.




    ModWithMe still had a piece from my last order ... perfect fit!
    Now all I need is a nice design.




    I found this background online ... sold!
    So, brainstorming again

    Scott had it translated to solidworks in no-time.
    But before Sander was able to cut it the design had a long way to go.
    Design went from Scott > me > Ivo > me > Sander > Ivo > Sander > Scott > me/Sander before they would actually fit the edited design




    And so, 8 months later.
    It became a design with 2 layers.




    And this Saturday ..




    First a quick fit again






    Very nice work Sander!






    Need to know how it would look on a radiator




    Frames still nice and rough.




    Lets change that first. (last night)




    And a little polishing.






    Perfect fit!




    And with just UV




    And black.




    Small amount of glue on the corners.




    I'm very happy with the end result.
    And ... I can always re-use them ... the acrylic is easy to replace for a different design/color.
















    Thanks a lot Scott, Ivo and Sander, it was an awesome 'little' project!

    Sub'd. Your last project had me convinced that at some point, I will build a "desk" computer. I've told my wife that this is something I will start this year and hopefully by next year it'll be done (also have a full time job that requires international travel and twin 2 year olds).

    BTW, you were in my neck of the woods and would have bought you dinner to pick your brain for even an hour. Hope you enjoyed the Stockyards. My kids love it and we go whenever possible.
