Red and black is always a nice look. But in my opinion it is done soooo often... I love to see builds with a different color scheme. With a desk as epic as this, I would love to see it be completely unique.

Just my 2 cents.

Looks awesome so far. thumb.gif

EDIT: Would look pretty awesome if you just clear coated the aluminum frame, and did black panels. thumb.gif

I vote a majority of the desk anodized black, with some anodized red touches and some small brushed aluminum metal showing... come up with some design for the color....

What it means to max a game out (Click to show)
1) All in game settings are as high as they can go, AA include, EVERY setting is MAXED out.
2) Average FPS matches or exceeds the max refresh rate of your monitors, ideally I'd like to say minimum matches but that's just near impossible to guarantee.
3) Game is being played at the native resolution of your monitor(s)**

**can be said that you are maxing a game out at __ resolution as long as you state that resolution and pass the first 2 criteria

Whoooa, that thing is HUGE! How much does that thing weight anyway, 150lbs?
Red could be good and if you like it go for it. Doesn't matter how many times it's been used if you like it 'cause ultimately you're doing this build for yourself and it'll look wicked in any color biggrin.gif Use the water bottle as reservoir? tongue.gif

I was thinking about just brushing the frame and powder coating the panels, but that would look awesome if I had the acetal topped blocks (I have plexi) and then I saw the bottle and fell in love with the colour smile.gif so if I can match it well it will be painted frame and powder coated panels everything attaches to the frame through panels so the tougher powder would get the bolts and the frame would just have to cope with contact from panels smile.gif

And the desk is really light still, haven't weighed it but I can still pick it up on my own, Its just a bit ungainly with the size and shape. I think I would have a hernia by now if I had done it out of steel section tongue.gif

Thank you for all the interest and comments smile.gif
