  1. I want the Excalibur v2 keyboard because it looks like an awesome key board and i need a new one.
  2. I want a new ssd because the one I have now is almost full and I need more space.
  3. It is a tie between the headset and keyboard for my favorite product. They both look awesome.
  4. It is more noticeable in person and it mostly only happens on softer wood like pine there wasn't really a problem with the red oak being blotchy. Which was the other three strips on the front and top.
  5. The Desk and top is pine. For the desk i used Minwax Polyshades Bombay Mahogany Satin number 380. I really like the color of it but it is a pain to use since you have to clean you brush after each time you stain with mineral spirits and you can only use certain types of brushes since it is stain and polyurethane. For the top that hold the glass i used Minwax Wood finish Ebony number 2718 and i did not use polyurethane on it. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO USE PRE STAIN WOOD CONDITIONER ON PINE or else it will cause your stain to become blotchy. Which is what happened to Woody.
  6. This is the first linustech tips i ever watched and it was pretty close to when it first came out and i have been watching ever since.
  7. Ya i know i realized that i am supposed to put pump directly after res after i was finished cutting all the tubing so i decided to see how it would be if i just left it like that and so far the pump is running good and it is silent. I think the only issue it could have caused was making it kind of time consuming to bleed the loop but that could also have taken a long time since every thing is on the same level.
  8. Thanks. I do not think that the fans will be starved of air since they are close to the side of the desk and the rear fan is almost on the back edge of the desk which gives it plenty of fresh air. the edges of the desk are open and it has a god couple of inches between the fans and the glass which is only on the top. I will make sure that i pay attention to the fans and temps to make sure that they are starving for air since i didn't think about that.
  9. I have finished setting up all the tubes and i filled it with water. Right now i am leak checking all the fittings but so far so good and it has been running for about an hour with and no leaks so far. I am watercooling the mother board since i have the maximus Vformula with a built in copper pipe that runs through the heat sink. I have also put the top of the desk back on. Here is the completed pictue of the desk and of course Woody is the background. These Are just more glamour shots If you have made it this far through all of the pictures here is my
  10. I have installed the pump to my desk by drilling holes and using bolts that are a lot longer than the ones that came with the pump. I also used the piece of foam with tape on both sides so it would not vibrate. For the rad i did not mount it to the desk the screws would not be long enough and i did not have screws that had the same thread. So i screwed the extra fan scres that i got from the rad into the bottom of the rad. Later today i will finish the water cooling i already have most of the tubes connected i just have to do the rad and pump which is a pain in the butt because I'm us
  11. For now the rad will not be mounted to the desk it will be siting on extra fan screws screwed into the bottom of the rad. The screws are long enough to let in plenty of room to let air blow out of.
