    Still had to change some things under my floor.
    Today i found some time.

    Had to replace some fans on my rad for Scythe GT's
    Replaced the green tube for Tygon black.

    Also replaced the 3 remaining GT's in my desk for green Nanoxia's

    [​IMG]


    GT's out

    [​IMG]


    Only 5cm space for my hand.

    [​IMG]


    Nanoxia's in.

    [​IMG]


    Here my radiator in the distance.

    [​IMG]


    On request also made a little movie of my trip :)


    [​IMG]



    Mobile doesn't work here, but baby phone works fine :D

    [​IMG]


    De GT's on their place and tubes replaced !

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    And another small test.
    Wanted to know what stuff goes trough my loop.
    This way it was easy to discover.

    [​IMG]

    Click it between my tubes and enable the pumps for one hour.

    [​IMG]


    Then disconnect the filter while pumping and stop the pumps as fast as you can.
    This is so the dirt really stays in the filter.

    [​IMG]

    All tiny hairs and wtf, even a piece of my sigarettes :p

    [​IMG]

    Till next time :p

    Received a nice UV led board today.

    It's specially for making photo's from UV-active parts.
    You can only use it for 5 minutes per time, else it gets too hot :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Small surprise between the UV leds :)

    [​IMG]


    And some pictures with the effect

    Yesterday the idea came up for hiding my cables from the 3 screens.

    [​IMG]

    Some won't like it, but for me this works great since my pc is more open then closed :p
    So this way it's very easy to take away the backplates.

    [​IMG]


    It's only connected with the left side of the panel.

    [​IMG]


    2 hours later it was really empty, looks like a reverse buildlog :(

    [​IMG]


    Sanding it some.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Like a bomb exploded.

    [​IMG]


    Here i was finished for today :)

    [​IMG]


    Almost forgot i need to sand these too so they can be powder-coated in the same color.

    [​IMG]


    Hmm nasty job, sanding anodized aluminum by hand, think i'll use the grinder for it.

    Quite a busy day.

    Still had to sand some plates.
    Then my wife came in with a nice box.


    [​IMG]

    Also an other package i ordered at Highflow

    [​IMG]

    These Cubitek extension cables are 50cm, very thin and not expensive at all

    [​IMG]

    Later that day i brought away my desk to the powder coater.

    [​IMG]


    As curious as i am i asked everything :)

    Here all the uncoated products slowly move to a man who "powders" all the hard to reach spots.

    [​IMG]

    This guys :)
    2 meters behind him the machine powders the rest.

    [​IMG]


    It's just some sort of dry powder that normally would let go.
    But because it's electrically loaded it's sticks to the product.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that everything goes to the oven.

    [​IMG]


    Here it's heated up till 200 degrees Celsius so the coat gets very hard and equal

    [​IMG]


    Back home i had to unpack the BP box :)

    [​IMG]

    Offcourse i want to use these on my backplate after getting such a nice box :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Want to use these Ram Mods for under my GPU's.

    [​IMG]

    Also want to use these X-stations since they are smaller and have female molex.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Cause the desk will be black soon and all my blocks are plexi, i will try these blocks in plexi too.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Same here.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    And some extra and new kind of fittings, ill need them for future updates :p

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Vincent and Bitspower ... really you guys RULE :p

    Got a real nice present from Bigfoot Networks !
    A Bigfoot Networks™ Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card :)
    Thanks Timo and thanks for the help Xtrafris !)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    "The Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card delivers maximum networking performance for online games, whether you’re playing MMOs or first-person shooters. Featuring Advanced Game Detect™, Killer™ 2100 automatically classifies and accelerates traffic to your game ahead of other network traffic for maximum online game performance and a competitive edge."

    Off course i want to try that out, im really in for some on line gaming after such a year :)

    [​IMG]

    Casemodder Xtrafris also sent me a K`Bling :D
    Wanted to use this to mod it on the Killer™ but seems i don't have enough space.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    So first with it's cap removed next to the Gpu's.
    Maybe later i'll use a pci-e extender to make some space.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Think i'll just make a square hole in the gtx580 backplate for the network cable.
    It's the only Pci-e 4x slot left.

    [​IMG]

    Also got a 7000rpm polisher with some sort of wax from my brother-in-law.
    You need to hold it tight, but the effect is perfect !

    You mean if the desk will be silent ?
    It certainly is, there's no sound at all when you're sitting behind the desk.
    Thats cause i used isolating rubber tape between the glass


    Finally !! :p

    [​IMG]

    And still exciting :)

    [​IMG]


    All unpacked.

    [​IMG]


    Very glad i coated the Bitspower radguards in the same color.

    [​IMG]


    Also the lianli backplate.

    [​IMG]

    This is how it will look.
    Monday ill get some new rubber tape for the desk and glass so i can lift it in the desk holder.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Before the desk goes into desk holder i first wanted to polish it, but need a new polisher first, this one had no hairs left :)

    Small update.

    Changed 2 fittings, looked nicer .

    [​IMG]


    Sleeved some led cables, and modded the Killer 2100 in the gtx580 backplate.
    (Also a beer with my neigbour :p )

    [​IMG]


    Fans also in its place.

    [​IMG]


    And the Ram leds in action.
    Think it'll look nice in the dark.

    [​IMG]

    Also made a small movie of the leds and the mess :)
