Hi, thank you for checking out my updatelog

Since that ROG has released the Rampage VI extreme I thought it was time for updating my entire system.
The components that I have now are 4 years old, I want to update the desk so it is ready for the fully VR experience and the years to come.
Also making it fully RGB would be pretty awesome so I've asked Corsair's help since they're the RGB guys ;) (I'm sorry RGB haterzz)

What am I going to update?
In short:
Visible
- Main System (MOBO, RAM, CPU, SSD's)
- Fans
- Leds
- Controllers
- Waterblocks
- Color scheme 

Non-Visible
- Cable management
- Quick disconnects
- Tweakings inside the desk

 

I've done a buildlog of The X Desk before here's the link

I started a Desk build about 5 years ago and never finished it. I am doing a desk build now and cannot wait to see what you come up with on your second. I've used Red Harbinger and other desk builds (including yours) as inspiration!

That's what it's all about, happy that I could inspire you! 

I'm not doing a second desk build, im just upgrading this one :) I will be doing another desk build when ill move out, but that's way ahead in the future but already have some idea tho :D Was about to plan out a LAN gaming desk but never started that project since I have not enough space to build that thing and not enough tools and money unfortunately.

So I've ordered some mdpc-x sleeving in different tints of blue and purple

IMAG1225.thumb.jpg.1dbc9335a15194bb09e6191662a2d840.jpg

 

I'm going for a purple/blue theming

So I think I'll go with Purple & Aquamarine and some black sleeving

Or do you guys like another blue more? or something different? I'm still heavily thinking about the color scheme, so if you have any suggestion please let me know!

Tested out the fans and I think I'll go with this setup:

EKWB also released 2 types of waterblocks for the rampage, which one do you like the most?

I like them both, but I'm leaning toward the clear one since its fitting the mobo theme perfectly and the RGB letters are underneath the inlets and not above it, like the fully black one. Since my waterloop goes straight up it'll block them off.

I've made up my mind for the sleeving as I'm going for white and black. The white sleeving is one of the whitest there is (Sleeving from MDPC-X) so it's going to pick up any RGB color you throw at it. Everything will be black and white when its shut off. 

 

Progress with the cables:

Extending the USB's from the Commander Pro's

Started sleeving the 24pin

IMAG1250.thumb.jpg.87bfcc0403a72868e57dae6f6c87122e.jpg

 

And also made a design for the fan grills

They're ready and will arrive prob within next month :D They're waiting for the R6E waterblock before sending everything.

I'm happy with the end result, they will look awesome with the HD120 fans behind them!

Just received my mobo, now waiting for the cpu and ram and some other things before I start taking things apart in the desk.

Here some boxes and stuff.

Here are some quickpics of the rampage and the MP500 inside

IMAG1294.thumb.jpg.022bd69a4c16adbcde9abe0bef2deee9.jpg

 

I know these are phone quality pictures, I'll only take quality pictures of the end result since I don't own a pro camera and I have to ask my friend a favor.

 

Also started sleeving the 24pin and the 8/4 pins.

Attaching the EK heatsinks on the M.2's and installing it on the DIMM.2 slot. Well it looks badass!

I'll keep you guys updated, the biggest part has ye to start, removing everything from the desk, cleaning the waterloop, reworking the cable management.
