    dfox mxyzptlk reacted to Maki Role in [Build Log] Hive Desk Build - custom scratch build of a ROG x99 EK water cooled computer desk   
    See this right here is why I get annoyed when people turn their noses up at sponsored builds.  Sponsorship can play such a vital role for talented modders as frankly most of us aren't loaded nor have the ability to start up new builds on a whim.  It helps to remove the hardware cost barrier, allowing people to focus on the other parts of the build instead, just like you've done here.
     
    I just want to straight up say that this is my favourite PC desk design I've seen to date.  I'm sick to death of the thick, bathtub style desk where there's more space than the builders know what to do with.  This is sleek, sexy and oozes quality.  I love imposing limits for this exact reason, it forces people to become creative in order to surpass the obstacles.  Instant follow.

    an update!! wooohooo!
     
    Well, with my computer being nominated for mod of the month over at bit-tech (vote for me here please!!!  ) i thought id best actually do some modding!
     
    A massive thanks to 
     

     
     for sponsoring the sleeving for this build! For those who dont know, E22 is in partnership with Lurto0 customs who sells teleios sleeving.
     
    i wanted teleios sleeving.
    there is no orange teleios sleeving.
    lets mod some sleeving!!
     
     
    So, this is half of the sleeving i was sent from E22.Biz i have more white too... i want this orange though..
     

     
    This is where Stuart from Kemtex.co.uk came in. I emailed Stuart a few times as id seen somebody dye sleeving before, but every attempt i tried had failed.
     
    Stuart is a expert in dyes and after a few emails, i rang him. He was very interested in what i was doing and actually told me that the stuff i was ordering was far beyond my needs and he turned down a £25+ order, in the end all i needed was this
     

     
    and he actually supplied it to me for free as he was interested in whether it would work or not.
     
    So, i got a pan of hot water and put it on the hob (notice the stains, this wasnt my first attempt lol)
     

     
    Then added around half of the 25g bag of dye.
     

     
    I gave it a stir (do you think i could be a hand model?) (Parvum, valkia, anderp.... no taking the mick -.- )
     

     
    Grabbed the sleeving and started to put it in!
     

     

     
    Try and get all the sleeving underwater, make sure you stir often and also turn it over as much as you can
     

     
    after around 10 minutes
     

     
    after around 20 minutes
     

     
    after around 30 minutes
     

     
    the colour the sleeveing is in the pan isnt the same as what you will get in the end, you MUST wash off the dye, this does take a lot of colour away from the sleeving, this is what i got in the end:
     

     
    Some nicer shots:
     

     

     

     
    So, once id done this i thought i best actually sleeve something...
     
    24 pin:
     

     
    8 pin:
     

     
    6 pin pci-e to 2 6 pin pci-e 
     

     
    Group photo:
     

     
    I have got 2 more of the pci-e sets obviously for my other 2 cards, but i didnt want to over crowd the photos lol.
     
    Once again, a massive thanks to E22.biz and also Kemtex.co.uk If you want sleeving or dye, please give either of them a visit!

    Throwing numbers around like that doesn't make it true. With over 100000 users, 90% of them are worse off than you?, thats some impressive insight
     
    Defensive much, I get its annoying saying your opinions over and over, but this isn't needed.
     
    You should have said "I know their positioned differently, not that its fine and working" because people will still correct you "just in case" you didn't know.
     
    Obvious mistake is Obvious, should have clarified.

    dfox mxyzptlk reacted to pcjunkie209 in Red Harbinger Cross desk for a client   
    Hey Linus I joined and am posting this log since you asked so nicely!
     
    Alright so I'm about to spam the crap out of this first post with pictures! Sorry for that. I have been crazy busy building and laying it out that I haven't had time to post a log about it. This desk is for a client of mine and I'd like to give a little info for the purpose of the build to give everyone an idea why it is going to be the way it is.    First off Phil does web traffic among other things. So he needs a pc that can be on all the time that he doesn't have to worry about the liquid setup. This part of the desk will be a 24/7 system that he can remote into from anywhere. The other setup is more extreme and his daily driver. He will work from it and game from it. He will be running 4 x 144hz Asus monitors on this setup where as the other system will only have power and a nic hooked up. So lets try and do some specs. I'm gonna wing this part and I'll come back and try and fill anything I miss.   Work side -   Asus Sabertooth X79 Intel i7 4820K Crucial Ballistic low pro 64gb 2133mhz Samsung Evo 500gb SSD Evga GT610 Adaptec 6805 Raid card Western Digital 4TB Black x 6 in Raid 10 LG DVD burner Corsair H105 AIO cooler Cooler Master Hybrid 1050watt PSU   Main system-   Asus Rampage IV Black Intel i7 4930K Corsair Vengance Pro 64gb 2133mhz Samsung 840 Pro x 2 in Raid 0 for OS Evga GTX Titan x 3 Adaptec 6805 Raid card Western Digital 4TB Black x 6 in Raid 10 LG Bluray burner Cooler Master Hybrid 1050watt PSU   Cooling and Misc.-   Aquaero 6 XT Aquacomputer high flow USB Aquacomputer temp sensors x 3 Aquacomputer Kryographics for GTX TITAN - Acrylic Glass, back plates and bridge EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ cpu block Redharbinger FMJ Series Stainless Steel Reservoir Cover - Classic - 250e Black w/ EK-MultiOption RES X3 250 x 3 Bitspower fittings up the wazoo! Hardware Labs 360mm and 480mm radiators Bitspower dual D5 pump mod and covers Koolance PMP450 pumps Mayhems Sunshine Yellow Pastel   Cooler Master 120mm JetFlows x 16 Red LED RGB kit from here    Ok I think that about covers it. I may have missed something so I may add later. So lets start with the Red Harbinger Cross Desk     Next up some Titan blocks.     I didn't get a lot of picks in progress but I think you'll like what I did take pics of. Here's that moment where you figure out that the board is bigger than the board that was used for grommet layout. OOPS!     So I made my own     So lets move on to some water layout.     And here's a better look at the back area.      A look at Res setup     And a little teaser for now.......     Thats it for now. I hope you enjoyed my madness. Thanks for looking.............

    Hi,
     
    Update: Completed Pics
     
    I would like to share my 2014 build log and hopefully get some feedback to improve my build. I'm a newbie builder. Since the hardtube became popular, I wanted to build one. I learned by watching RomeoKilo, Singularity Computers, and other builders out there in YouTube. I thought it is easy, and I was wrong... hehe I tried...
     
    Specs:
    Case: Corsair: 900D (I chose this case 'coz I got it on sale and it has radiator mounts ready)
    Motherboard: Maximus VI Formula (I chose this MoBo since it has waterblock already)
    Processor: Intel 4770k
    Memory: 16 GB Corsair Dominator Platinum (I chose this memory for aesthetics)
    GPU: 2 x Saphire R9 290 (I got mine on sale before the R9 crisis, just didnt have time to complete the build)
    PSU: Corsair AX1200 (From my old rig)
    SSD: 240 GB Intel 530
    HHD: 3 x 1TB for Raid 0
     
    Watercooling:
    Radiator 1: XSPC EX480 Quad 120mm
    Radiator 2: EK Ultimate Performance CoolStream 480
    GPU Waterblock: 2 x EK-FC R9-290X - Acetal+Nickel
    CPU Waterblock: EK-Supremacy - Full Nickel
    Reservoir: XSPC Photon 270 Reservoir/D5 Vario Pump Combo
    Fan: 8 x Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition
    Fan: 4 x Corsair SP120 Performance Edition
    Fan: 1 x Corsair AP140 Quiet Edition
    Fan: 2 x Stock Corsair 900D Fans
    Coolant: Mayhem Aurora Red
    Tube: 4 x EK 12mm OD Solid Tube Set - Clear
    Fittings: 8 x Bitspower Enhanced Dual 90-Degree Multi-Link Adapter
                 6 x Bitspower G1/4 Thread 90-Degree Rotary Multi-Link Adapter
                 8 x Bitspower G1/4 Enhanced Multi-Link Adapter
                 2 x Bitspower G1/4 Thread 90-Degree Dual Rotary Adapter
                 etc...
     
    Others:
    Cable Sleeve: Lutro0 Telios
    Cable Sleeve: Corsair Individually Sleeve Cables
    LED: eBay Strips
    Fan Hub: 3 x ModMyToys 3-Pin Power Distribution PCB 5xWay Block
    Acrylic: 3mm 18 x 18 Plexiglass
     
    First set of items (I also order EVGA 750W PSU as I don't want to kill my current rig while i'm building):


     
    As I'm waiting for my other stuffs to arrive (waiting for stock), I started working on the mid-plate with 3mm acrylic...




     
    Stuffs starting to arrive...


     
    Working with GPU waterblock...

     
    Planning the loop...



     
    Oh wait... am I using EK 16mm OD tube fitting? Since I'm very unsuccessful with bending tubes

    (at least I can't get the right measurement and angle given all the tools I have except for the Monsoon Measuring Kit which is unfortunately been out-of-stock for the last 3 months).
     
    So I decided to scrap the plan and and proceed to "Plan B", BitsPower fittings...

     
    Bit short on Bitspower Enhanced Dual 90-Degree Multi-Link Adapter and I don't want to buy a piece and wait another week again, this project has been sitting here for too long now... I will do leak testing this weekend and hopefully finish the build. Unless you guys notice where the shortage that I'm talking about and suggested that I should follow the scheme of the build...

    Do I need to drain the loop first before adding the Aurora Red coolant? I didn't fill the whole reservoir thinking I can just add the coolant later... still waiting for it to arrive.
     
    I finished the lighting and cable management... I put 1 LED strip on the left side of the side panel and 1 under the acrylic motherboard tray cover to make it look like an underglow. I will also try to replace the LED on the reservoir with a brighter one to add a little red glow once it has the Aurora coolant.

    Description : Some of you might know me from the early days of build log section with "Phenomenon". Apparently I'm still not satisfied with it, and now I've moved for the classic look, simplicity, and full aluminium build. This would be my long haul PC which would last me for years to come, I used the best components I can get or buy without having my wallet cry. In the end I am very satisfied with the result yet the maintenance is easy and simple, very suitable for a guy like me who will have a new project called "Family" or "Wife" as some of you might know  , soon. May I present my latest creation PROJECT BLANK

    I would like to share my idea for another project with the Forum  
    Brandywine is almost finished and I have been sitting on this one now for some time.
    As with all my projects, this will develop as I move Forward.  
     
    Inspired by HOK Marblizer and Organic Green Kandy also credits to the Song and its Images
     
    I Bring You ...."The Green Manalishi"
     
    Short Intro Video:
     
     
     
     
    If you are unfamiliar with this please just Google.
     
    Lets start with the Frame for the Idea.
     
    LD's PC V4 Bench.  Nothing special right?  Lets make it special 
     

     

     

     
     
    After talking with FannBlade about this months ago, He whipped out the "Magic Wand" and created these...LED Light Casefeet.  His idea to match the Grills was Brilliant!
     

     

     

     

     
    What Now? What else can I do?  I have some ideas for Crazy looking paint Job.
     
    House of Kolor Silver-White Marblizer Topped with Organic Green Kandy for a Spacey/Tripped Out
    Look.
     

     
    Green Kandy
     

     
    Together it will be like this but different 
     

     
    A Budget Block from EK but i like the Looks of it.
     

     

     
    There is still quite a bit that's up in the Air right now.  I have an Idea for Dual 250ml Res mounted outside on grill section.  Dual EVGA GTX770's. Intel i7 4770k. PSU Unknown?  Something Massive i guess.
     
    I have a D5 and Pump Top doing nothing.
     

     

     
    I thinks it needs a bit of Polishing.
     
    For Lights/Sleeve/Rads i will be using Darkside.  Just love the look of it!
     

     

     

     
    You can probably guess by now the Motherboard? Yep..
    Gigabyte G1. Sniper 5   I will admit, Feels good in the Hand! Looks even better
     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     
     
    Lets have a Look at that paint i showed you earlier.  This is 5 layer process to achieve this look.
     

     

     

     

     

     

     
     
    Parts from DazMode arrived.  Darkside 360 Rad, Various Darkside Led's and some Darkside Commando Sleeve.  An EK Hat! Sure, why not.  Cool Swag  B)
     
    After seeing that first Rad i think we all know whats happening to this one.
     
    Many thanks to DazMode and Darkside Computer Modding for teaming up with me on this Project.
    And remember folks, Always shop on the Darkside!!
