Wow, its been a minute since ive been on the forum, let alone update the desk build. Taken me 3 years to finally bite the bullet and do a small upgrade, how time escapes you. Anyway, glad to say I have still been using my desk basically every day since it was built and haven't run into any issues, even with the coolant being 3 years old (sorry ek). Figured it was time to flush everything out and see the damage, and to my surprise, there wasn't any! The ek uv blue fluid that I put in it 3 years ago was still fine, none of the blocks were clogged up, corroded or anything. The soft tubing was a bit stained but the hard line was fine, not that I was super worried because blue fluid was going back into it but none the less the fluid held up super well. Disappointed that they discontinued that fluid but I ended up switching over to cryofuel navy blue which was the closest match. 


Speaking of things being discontinued... I managed to score myself a brand new X99 deluxe monoblock from ek which they found lying around their warehouse after sending in an email trying to get my hands on one. Unfortunately X99 is considered old now so they don't make monoblocks for them anymore which is a bummer. Always wanted to throw one in the table but they weren't in production at the time of me building the table. It does look awesome though, way better than the standard cpu nickle block. 


While everything was apart I took some time to redo some of the acrylic hard line as the existing bends wouldn't line up with the new monoblock and I wasn't real happy with the outcome of some of the bends from day 1 but just went with it as it wasn't a big deal. Its been a while since ive made some hard line tubes so I ordered double what I thought I needed and still didnt have enough and had to go through my pile of scrap pieces and make do. Unfortunately they don't make lengths longer than 500mm anymore which made my job harder because I was working with 800mm pieces before. In the end it worked out well, same sort of design as before, you can only change things so much in such a small area.


I will throw in a couple of pictures of the fans as well, I thought they would be super clogged up seeming as I haven't touched the desk in 3 years but once again I was surprised that the only bad two were the none filtered ones, all the other 9 fans were completely clean. Just goes to show that a good filter setup and also positive air pressure keeps the dust out.


In the 3 years I moved house and only just managed to complete the setup on how I intended it to look, there are minor things that still need to be done but overall I think it looks pretty killer. Above my desk is a cheap 4K TV that I bought from aldi for like $800 and after mucking around with the colour I got it to look fairly decent. It has this blue tinge to it which I cant get rid of but that's probably just the cheap panel. Looks fine when you are watching a movie or just normal free to air TV.


Thats about it really, thew in some cablemod RGBW strips which are a huge improvement over my ebay ones that I had in there before. Didn't feel as though I needed to change out anything else,2x 980ti's and a 5960x aren't going to disappoint for a few more years to come. Not sure what will happen next, can't really say this is the end. Hope you have enjoyed it, still one of the best computer desks out there on the internet although I may be bias ;).
