    XYOUNEED got a reaction from EnergyEclipse in The X Desk 2018 [UPDATE]   
    The last components have arrived, still waiting for a few packages from highflow.nl and I can finally start the whole update!
     
    Here are some shots of the components:


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



     
    Installed the black cablemod modkit onto the ram.


     
    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.

    Here are some quickpics of the rampage and the MP500 inside


     
    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.


     
    New updates incoming in December!

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

     
    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:
    FanLighting
     
    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

     
    And also made a design for the fan grills

     
    They're ready and will arrive prob within next month  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!

    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!

    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
