Great lap job!! Yes, you posted plenty of pictures. But we want to see more!!
Very nice work l3p!
Thanks man !
I made an how-to lap your cpu at www.l3p.nl
I was curious about the temperatures @ stock speeds.
Can't wait till it starts to freeze in Holland
wow great work.
Great desk / comp mod! I would love to have one of these myself lol.
those temps are amazing!
- Bitspower madness
- Aluminum, plexi, and tasteful lighting - aesthetically pleasing layout and construction
- A real storage setup - not just one drive...
- Shiny lapping job
- Haribo Gummy Bears (I used to eat these all the time - they're a bit tougher than American gummy varieties)
Definitely worth the time to admire
Thanks alot for the comments, they make my day
I want one.
Still figuring out how to solve this little problem.
When i started building the desk i made small holes in the backplate, thought it would be enough.
Never thought about the 4x sata + 2x molex per hole at the right side of the desk.
Thinking of making one big hole between the 2 sets of hdd's in the backplate and turn around one set.
So all cables go through one big hole.
Also tested again with some mirrorfoil.
But im quiting with this idea ..
It's either mirroring too much, or darkening too much, can't find a way between them without losing the nice sight at the hardware.
And some random pics, love to play with it
Should turn it around a bit so i see 3 rings.
And thanks to Vin-Tech i can start sleeving the ugly red sata cables .
You are a mod god. XD
seriously cool work
well done mate
My Corsair HX1000 probably died
Glad that some1 could help me out with his spare PSU so i could find the problem.
And yes .. Other psu, and voltages were normal again.
Found something i maybe want to use to lift the glass.
Bitspower Shiny Silver Hinge.
And got the ordered relay to switch all my leds and lighting with one Bulgin momentary switch
And some tests offcourse.
Found a weird problem with the tempsensors.
When i switch them in hand mode, they work fine, but when i use the momentary switch the sensors become blue but don't show the temperature.
And tomorrow ...
A very very nice present from the best European hardware and cooling shop ! Couldn't be timed better
Lighting will have to wait a few days
For 10 years i always used the "better" soundcards.
But the last year i used onboard, somehow i didn't like it.
And last week my eye fell on the Asus Xense.
I fell in love instantly !
Specially cause it would fit perfectly in the desk with the chrome look.
So i was already saving some money for it.
But then ....
My PSU died ... And we can't run without it
Xense dream gone
Then i got a wonderful mail from Freddy from Highflow
Going to try to build it in this weekend.
Here some unpacking pictures.
Freddy ... You're the best !
Cool down your PC and Get Low Temps with HighFlow!
Could get it done in one day, after modding from 09:00 till 23:00
So all i can do is a movie of the mess here at the moment
L3p D3sk - Update 11-12-10 - Silverstone ST1500 + Asus Xense + Hdd watercooling + Sleeving
What is your job that you get to do all this stuff, L3p?
I don't exactly understand what you mean.
You mean the hardware or the tools ?
You can find some info here about me
I mean what is your day to day career / job. Are you a full-time modder? Something else computer related? Or something completely unrelated, and this is just a hobby you are really good at?
Well i’m 30 years old and I’m an electrician, and mostly active on trawlers, vessels,
onshore installations in industry, utilities and residential buildings.
My hobby is everything that has to do with computers, hardware, software, and modding/tweaking it.
So yes it's just my hobby, it's my second build
And here the promised update
2 days from 09:00 till 23:00 and 10:00 till 17:00
Still seems like nothing has changed ^^
Breaking down already took a few hours
Too small holes for those cables.
couldn't find those cables in another color
Removed the hdd stickers.
Ready to take off.
Like a bomb exploded.
measuring and drilling.
Changing the tempsensors.
This is so i can put them at the in and outlet in the desk.
I can measure the in and outgoing temperatures more accurate then.
Pff it still works
Sleeved the ugly red sata cables. Thanks Vin-Tech !
Cutouts for the dvd-r drives.
Further on with the loop.
Tempsensors mounted, just a tiny piece of barb.
Sleeved cables sleeved again
Now the worst part, connecting the cables again and placing the new PSU.
Custom made molex of 1.30m for the Asus Xense.
piece by piece ....
New molex for the "underground fans cable".
Ready to fill it up.
Almost done filling the new loop.
wtf, ghosts in my res ...
Loop running, all thats left getting the pc running.
Wow, it booted, luckily i got normal voltages now.
Almost forgot the extra hole for the bulgin switch for the lighting
First temporary, later with sleeve.
They work !
Power switch/power led -- Reset switch/hddled -- Lighting switch/lichting led
Works like a charm.
Hdd temps lowered 17-20 degrees.
Still in love
You can also see the Xense molex
Pc heats up the water with 1.7 degrees.
Hmm needs some polishing.
Perfect spot for the Sennheiser Xense
Ready to type this update !
All made possible by my wife, me and Freddy
Pretty cool desk. I like the lighting too
This is a work of art!
Maybe ill upload a second fill-up movie today for u guys
Legendary build. Nice one mate.
do you have any pictures with the screen blacked out hiding the components? I wanted to see the difference. Great build though. Consider it finished yet?
Don't really know what screen you mean.
Explain and ill make the picture
And as promised, the fill-up movie
I thought you had mentioned that the clear screen on top of the components (the literal "desk top") would be a screen that you could change from clear to dark to hide the pc and make it appear as a normal desk
Truly amazing dude, seriously.
He was using various kinds of tinting film, one of which was supposed to be almost black without light behind it but transparent with the lights on. It did not work how he liked, even after several attempts with different kinds of tinting film, and it was a pain to clean up all the adhesive after each attempt, so he decided against using it.
Came online to explain it, but Silent-circuit already did.
The foil isn't what i want, so i wiped that idea.
I did see this, maybe i should mail them
You are fucking [H].
Had some problems switching all the leds in my desk by one Bulgin momentary led switch.
All the leds are connected to a bitspower X-station.
The user "Calimero" @ the highflow forum fixed it for me ^^
I'm to impatient for this work.
He's been busy with it for quite some hours.
With this print i can switch this :
one 5V line
one 12V line
the led in the bulgin switch
This bulgin led is on a current feed now, so switching from blue (3.5V) to, for example, Red (1.8V) is no problem at all, the current will remain the same
So thanks to Calimero !
Adjustable for the bulgin switch
Again, thanks Calimero
Such a mess for a tiny plate
1 relay free for future components
And a little Youtube movie to show how it works.
Happy New Year ALL !!!
one day i'll have the space to build something so ambitious.
Can't wait to see your buildlog
Finally a little dream comes true
After 5 years joyfully using the Samsung 245B it's time for a change.
Thought about 3 screens for over a year cause of Eyefinity and Nvidia Surround.
I could choose from:
3 x 23" Samsung 1920x1080 (3 x 24" doesn't fit)
1 x 27" Dell 2560x1440 + 1 x 17" Dell 1280x1024 (portrait)
Came to the conclusion 1 big screen with a higher pixel density works better for me.
Also cause of the viewing distance.
What i do most is surfing the internet and gaming.
So i think a 2560x1440 resolution would be great!
Really can't wait
